A win of epic proportions
Good God man, this is my favourite submission of the day thus far. This collection of artistic mastery deserves to be given some sort of accolade, namely daily first, a place in the top 50, and a spot of the front page. Anything that doesn't meet all three criteria is a slap in the face to flash artists everywhere.
This is the epitome of excellence, Sir. Daily Day 2 wouldn't have been the same without you, much less spectacular in nature.
This flash FTW.
Happy Daily Day.
Thanks for your review, it's an honor. Hope to see you around more often in the future. Long live the SS.
Decent stuff, certainly.
The animation was of a decent quality. A little patchy at points, perhaps, but there's no doubting it worked quite well. The drawing themselves were nice, I'll give you that, but they didn't flow as well as they could have. No biggy, however.
The sound, I liked it. Not loved, mind you, liked. I thought it was going well at the start, the slow, slightly melodramatic star wars music went well with the whole "What if you didn't know who you were ?" thing. However, I was slightly dismayed when it burst into techno. Not to say that it didn't work, it did, but I felt that perhaps a better choice could have been made. What ? I don't know, but it could have been done, none the less.
The violence, well, that wasn't really that great. The fights looked slow and patchy. Perhaps they could have done with an increase in frame rate ? Whatever. There was no real violence, per se, in this movie. By that I mean, no hardcore blood and gut type stuff. But don't get me wrong, that's not a bad thing. Not at all. After all, they were robots, I'm just explaining why I scored it relatively low for violence.
Interactivity and humour, both at 0. Well, that's mainly because it was neither interactive, nor funny. Obviously it was a movie, not a game, so interactivity was never going to be at 10, but the only interactive part here was the play button. Again, not a bad thing in the slightest. As I said, it's a movie. No humour, either, but then again, I doubt you intended it to be a laugh a minute rollercoaster. Don't worry, neither of these effected your overall score.
Overall, there's not too much I can say really. It was a decent animation. Above average ? Yes, actually, it probably was. However, I felt it could flow better at parts, if you catch my drift. Well, there you have it, a solid 6 out of 10. Go you.
As I as saying, the way you handled the Sprites was excellent. Especially during the Mario and Sonic-megaman scenes. I take it you made those yourself ? Genius.
If I were to pick up on anything, it would be two things :
1) The dialogue
Now, yes, I've taken into account the fact that English isn't your native language, but the dialogue really was quite hard to understand at times. After this first few lines I started to reminisce about Zero Wing. If you could, it would be great if you maybe got someone to help you with it. No, I'm not trying to patronize you in an way, it's just a suggestion.
2) The explosions
Sometimes these worked really well, others, not so much so. If I were to say anything to you regarding this issue, it would be that maybe you should cut down on them a littel. Just a little, mind you.
Decent flash, indeed
Well, unlike most other people, I'll attempt to review the flash, not the person. Roll onwards :
Very near slick. The movement of the characters were smooth and rolled along perfectly. I liked the effect of the black and white characters, with red blood, it really adds to the atmosphere of the flash.
Stylish ? No doubts about it. Again I refer to the black and white characters, red blood. Awesome.
Appart from the gun shot and explosion effects, there wasn't much too the sound. Both were used in an appropriate fashion.
Well, as one might imagine, this is the main feature of the flash. It wasn't gory, per se, the only real violence were shootings and explosions, a pretty mundane thing around here. Also, the blood looked cartoonish, not realistc (As much as flash can be realistic) at all. The gore was implied though, and results in a 6.
Appart from the slightl black humour of the cigerette lighting incident, there's virtually no funnies contained in this flash.
Good, short flash. This is where I'd give you tips on how to improve, say you had potential, but I guess that's of no use now, is it ?
We shall overcome
The light of freedom shines brightly upon us. Our day is near.
The first one was a masterpiece, and yet some how you've managed to improve upon it. The graphics were great, and I thought you used fantastic lighting, especially during the Luke/Vader scene. The lyrics weren't the best, but they still gave me a few chuckles here and there, but the sound quality was really crisp, I had no trouble at all hearing the words.
Graphics: The graphics here are excellent, there's no other word for it. They look and feel like a real cartoon, something you would watch on television. I only gave it a nine though, because although they were great, they were a bit anime-ish for my liking. Nothing wrong with, just not my taste :)
Style : Great style, the artwork is very well done. As I said the anime style doesn't suit me, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.
Sound: The voices were fantastic. Even though I couldn't understand what they were saying, it still gave it that authentic feel. The music was calming at the beggining, and played well throughout.
Violence: There wasn't much here, the only violence in it was cartoonish. The battle scenes were well done, and again added to the real FF theme.
Interactivity : N/A
Humor : The humour was good, a little dull at times and not appealing to my taste, but it was alright. It was obvious at times and quite predictable, but there you have it.
Overall : A well balanced flash with the real anime/Final fantasy feel to it.
It's funny because it's true, every last bit of it. The movie was basically an IWP movie, looks and all, and I loved goamy's voice, almost a perfect copy of Foamy's. Honestly, it was amazing.
thank you so much
Grpahics : What can I say ? I've always been a great fan of sprites and this is no exception, the work with them is particularly well done during the battle scene.
Style : Mostly the same for all sprite movies, and I love it.
Sound : The music went well throughout the whole thing, it really gave it an in game feel. Again the battle scene stands out here, as the sound effect matched basically those of the game.
Violence : N/A
Humour : The conversation between the NPC and main character was quite funny, though I actually laughed when I saw, and heard kirby. You have a good sense of humour as far as I can tell, and it would be great to see it implemented into further movies.
Overall : Short but sweet and looked like the actual game being played out. 4/5
Wow! I saw it as being nowhere near the real game. My sound effects have clips of background music that I couldn't remove and some of them didn't even play. But I'm glad you enjoyed it!
It was bootyfool :'(
