Hey, better late than never right? I'm really glad that this got finished. Your flash animations have always exhibited careful detail in how the characters move and act. I do have one nitpick and it's that your sound effects seem pretty generic. It fits your erratic style of quickly paced storytelling, but sometimes it seems like lazily ripping sounds from popular movies and video games is barring your movies from being anything more. I'd like you to pay more attention to such details in the future.
Anyway, 9 out of 10 stars. You lost one when you misspelled Vengeance. You know where.
Thanks Gustavos! I think this is probably your first actual criticism, and I totally get it, too! I'll be sure to more original in my sound design, I get where you're coming from.
Also, I misspelled it? CRAP. How come the painbrush doesn't have a spellcheck feature?
You should've added a star, your name was right next to it. And in the special thanks.
GOLD DIGGER, OVER HERE.
I was going to have some fun in pointing out tiny things that could be fixed AFTER you uploaded, but from the look of things, budj is already doing that to you in chat. Oh well.
As always, I'm impressed by the writing. You and tj really put something spectacular together, and I still lose it every time I watch the scenes between goombario and goombaria. Creative use of this classic games' characters and stellar voice work is what really made this flash shine for me. A solid comedic piece in every way and I was glad you gave me a chance to contribute. Cheers to the Superlab, I look forward to animating alongside them someday.
Lol I imagine I will have to re-upload this atleast 22 (Today's lucky number lol) more times with edits before he is satisfied : > Although it wasn't all Budj's or Tj's advice that helped, yours was the balance between the two warring kingdoms lol and I thank you kindly for that. The thought you returning to animation excites me! And you should know you have all the resources you need at your disposal, including myself as an animator. Hell yes.
Everytime I watch this flash. It seems like Kafei becomes more and more of a player. I'm glad this finally got out. Your animating skills are so superbly displayed that I can't help but be so jealous kaf-...anyway, as a Zelda fan, I really enjoyed this take on some of the minor characters of Majora's mask. Proving that not every flash for this game series has to be some parody of Ocarina of Time.
Thanks a ton Gusty. : > Digging the ""about you" section on your profile page by the way
This was actually quite fun. Not the flash game I've ever played, but we certainly don't get very many good Mario platformers. I beaten the game without dying, but was left with 1 HP at the end of the boss fight which got surprisingly tough on the third round. The way Mario takes damage is fidgety and can even keep the player from getting away from danger. I would recommend having Mario blink for a second or two indicating vulnerability from further damage. If I, say, jumped on a spiked goomba, I would keep bouncing off it and lose half my health in just a couple seconds. This can be annoying.
I did still like the sense of challenge. The scarcity of health pickups, and the coin health system. The parts where you have to run to the end due to an impending danger (a boulder, or rising lava) had a suspenseful feel when coupled with the great music choices. And that may be the best part of this game, the music. Nice work on getting all those tracks from the Audio Portal rather than ripping straight from the games. It proves the idea that Newgrounds' content is made by everyone, and not from other projects.
I would have liked to see more variety with the enemies though. The environments proved to be more dangerous than the goombas. Why not add in some more baddies from Mario's universe. Koopas, boos, and any one of the wacky enemies of the Paper Mario games. And since this is supposed to be like Super Mario World as well, how about a few small powerups? Maybe some totally new and original ones?
Overall, this wasn't a waste of effort. With more polish and added content, the next one can be a real hit.
Thanks for the great review (: I know about the glitchy enemies, it's one of the problems I couldn't figure out actionscript-wise. I'm no genius at it but I think it worked out quite playable haha :P
The party is a lie.
I always loved the occanional zombie survival readiness tests that come by. I myself wouldn't do well in a real and dangerous outbreak, and the results prove it. This test showed more variety than even the highest rated tests I've tried, which is awesome. All these different fields you need to consider. I agree completely that I'd end up being the driver/medic of a potential team, but I also lack physical prowess and experience with firearms to be a driving force against the undead. The party was also really fun, and the minigames were nice breaks from the standard questions.
Overall, this quiz had flavor, and I totally dug it. :)
Wow, better than I expected. I'm only 16, lol.
But in a real zombie apocalypse, I'm not sure what I would do. If I was at home, I'd grab a bat, but I don't know where my parents keep the gun, or even if they have ammunition for it. I'd be pretty screwed, and may end up as a liability to the team. But if it was the T-Virus, you'd have to be an idiot, or hopelessly unfit to get killed under normal circumstances. :P
It was a good quiz, pretty standard questions.
My oh my, this song reminds me of all those nights on the town I never had. Yeah baby.
Potnyx is a great singer, but I fear for the world if Superlab does get into this gig of doing cover songs.
Hey, you're next!
And then he gets shot
Yeah, I loved that scene.
That was silly. You see, when people make voice demos, they try to show off what kind of voices they can do. Like, say, a British or Brooklyn accent. It gives the viewer the chance to see if any of their possible voices can fit for the character they need voice acting for.
But that doesn't matter, because a female voice actor is valuable enough. Considering how few of those there are. lol
The picture itself is fairly entertaining, though. You did forget the buckles on the overalls of both Mario and Luigi. The part of their hats that stick forward under the letters also aren't very defined, when they should be. Not much else to comment on since very little of it was drawn, traced or not.
Thanks, I'll take these notes next time.
I love Fallout 3!
Very creative what you're doing here. Can't wait to see what you come of with for the last two levels.
but the story is awesome
and that's all there is to it really.
Irrelevant review is irrelevant.
I AM SO HORRIBLE AT GRAPHICAL SHIT XD
My hands only have two abilities: fapping and writing.
