Lol I like your perspective but I love the ORIGINAL Yu-Gi-Oh. It's almost strange how a show based around cards was so dark at times. I mean Yami "mind crushed" (Killed) like 5 people in the first season. And the American theme was on "Rock The Dragon" and Batman theme levels of badassery. Not gonna lie some episodes and voice acting (Tristans Barney voice) can be down right atrocious including some of the issues you guys already discussed. But what makes all this null and void is Yu-gi-oh A.K.A Yami himself he just steals the show most time he's on screen escaping hopeless odds and situations with style and wit, never gets old. Getting back on track this animation was entertaining and I like watching and hearing differing opinions not only for diversity sake but sometimes because they challenge my own and may even adjust the way I view things, that's life. To not accept that is bad for humanity, period.
Glad to see you're still making these!
Concept: SCF get's into the christmas spirit
Aesthetic:I like that your trees and snowballs were really well drawn and colored/animated. The christmas remixes were a treat to listen to it's a shame that it wasn't in sync with the scenes it was meat to be played with.
Animation: The scene where black was walking through the snow dragged on too long especially when the music stopped before the scene was complete which made it somewhat boring for a minute or so. The action was really smooth and entertaining to watch as usual. your only issues are the frame rate speed of character close ups.
Humor: The action is just what I expected from a christmas special light hearted and funny.
Overall:As always this series has me on edge for what comes next as the passion and hard work are still evident. Merry belated Christmas and a Happy New Year!
you know, its pretty well in sync on my computer, not perfect, but somewhat. i need to make sure that everything i do can play the same way it does on my machine. but i do agree on the waling being a bit long. since the frame rate falls for no reason :/
i always encounter new technical issues, but thats part of learning :3
thanks for the review dude
Holy shit something new that actually gets my attention! I really like the art style it looked Samurai Jack-ish at first glanced but leaned more toward anime as I watched. Already like the main character aside from being a sonic fan she's cocky and outgoing which are always great traits for a protagonist. wished I'd seen more action though kinda bums me that I have to wait who knows how long to see how imaginative your fight scenes are but based on this epidode I'm really looking forwartd to the results. Until then Excellent job!
Concept: Just a broken game with anime elements.
Story: It's the set up for the gameplay. However there's nothing particularly interesting about it.
Sound: The strongest part of the game. The jingle to whatever anime this track is from sounds cool. The Gun sound effects are epic.
Animation: bland and uninteresting too look at. only thing that makes this game somewhat fresh was when the "Action-Replay comic panels" pop up at the top of the screen every now and then. If I were you I'd save this idea for possible future action games. I'd recommend turn the walking animation into running for a more dynamic feel and make the melee combat looked more stylized (After you fix the buggy movement controls that is.)
- Movement controls lock up if using melee
- melee is ineffective on "bosses". (I doubt it's part of gameplay mechanic cause there's just no point. )
- repetitive in general
Overall: This game seemed like it had potential during development, the title alone would make one think mindless dumb fun. However the game is under developed in too many ways to give any sort of satisfaction or lasting appeal.
The unanticipated return Of Fancy Pants World Adventure takes the platformer genre by storm!!!
Concept: The third (final?) installment of the popular Fancy pants franchise makes a return with never before seen platforming and combat mechanics.
Asthetic: What makes fancy pants so visually iconic is its carefree style it's art its music and gameplay just gives off a "laid back"feel. This game is the definition of freedom.
Gameplay: The free running style is back and better then ever. The sense of exploration is just so much more evident here then in the previous installments, each level feels more unique based on certain platforming mechanics exclusive to certain environments throughout the game. Such as the beach and the disappearing "sand floats" or how the cave levels only provide true water exploration. Also the fact that doors no longer CONSISTENTLY represent the end of a level makes the levels themselves feel more together and complimentary giving that grand world feel established in the games title.
As equally fantastic as the level design is the game play . If you choose to just free run from start to finish there's hardly any break in momentum from the various acrobatics and well timed jumps you can pull off. The new combat system may slow down the pacing of the game, however it more then adds to the fun! The combat animations look inspired by Newgrounds Rumble which is a pretty cool throwback, and it's a great change of pace when you want a break from running fancy. You can even incorporate the addition of combat moves into your exploration and the aerial spin on enemies "Sonic The Hedgehog style".
The new enemies are a breath of fresh air cause I'm sure I'm not the only one tired of seeing spiders and rats with guns. Now we get crabs, pirates, birds, and ninjas! However even with this variety of enemies the difficulty is laughably easy. I never died once through out the entire game especially now that falling into an abyss no longer takes your life, let alone injure you. I just wish there was more of a challenge outside of being a completionist.However This doesn't hurt the game at all as I'd rather have balanced gameplay then facing cheap enemy placement, and pit falls throughout every square inch of a level. The only technical issue that I noticed is the game play is sluggish in detailed environments EVEN ON IT'S LOWEST QUALITY. But it doesn't hinder gameplay so it can be overlooked.
The only thing that was slightly disappointing was the ending I know I'm not exactly suppose to take the story seriously but the very brief animation of Fancy pants picking up his sister was pretty much the modern way of saying "game over, you win now get lost" was just kinda lacking in my opinion.
The swimming exploration
The theme in Misplaced Cove (totally going to mp3 if I can)
The combat system was a great addition to kill any chance of repetitiveness
The easy yet humorous jokes
OVERALL: NG's answer to Sonic The Hedgehog still gots da fancy! I can honestly say this is the best Platformer on NG since "Abobo's Big Adventure" and just as unique in its own right in gameplay, style and originality. I'll be replaying this game long after it's daily feature days are behind it and if this is the finale I'm glad to say it went out with a bang.
Concept: simplistic plat former with a prehistoric theme.I was disappointed that the title has little relevance to any aspects of the actual movie or Jurassic park games. considering it copies the Jurassic Park font and all.
Aesthetic: This game looks really nice. Beautiful variation of brown and nice lighting and smoggy special effects. The music is fitting but repetitive as it's the only track in the game but at least you have the option to turn it off.
Game play: As nice as it looks there's not much going for it. I'm not fond of playing very basic games with a high score as it's only incentive it gives very little replay value. Maybe if the game offered power ups, interesting animations, any thing more then the bare minimum of constantly left clicking. It was disappointing that the so-called "acid water" didn't grant me some kind of animated death involving the bugs becoming a skeleton. That would've at least provided a sense of suspense or made the game more interesting to look at. Even then at least go all the way and make the acidic water ACIDIC instead of taking the "overly-kid friendly" route. Not like it had to be rated "M"gruesome it could've been just an instantaneous transition from bug to bug's skeleton without the graphic imagery he could even still be smiling which would've added humor and retain the kid friendly atmosphere.
Overall: This game is pretty much bone dry despite the nice scenery. If this was a art submission I'd praise the hell out of it. But the game play is just boring and to A,B,C basic, if there's a sequel you definitely should add extra content that will keep players interested for more then 10 minutes.
I felt like I was floating in a limbo discovering the "unknown", like I'm being reborn. This song has a nice twist of peaceful and a menacing feel at the same time. Sounds like you put some decent time and effort into this as a great start up that sets the mood and retained it's dark tone to the very end.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you for listening.
An epic mix that defines the madness series
Haunting and chaotic the definition of this song as well as the flash series it represents. months ago I was listening to this song 10X over after watching madness abrogation. I love the everything from the holler monkey like scream to the heavy base that comes in at 2:52.
This song is very good at getting your blood pumped for some intense activity whether it be exercising or playing a Video Game on Intense difficulty.
And that's why it earns a spot in my favorite list.
Thinking In Slow Motion fits this song big time.
The music is still playin as i'm typin and from what i'm hearin this sounds so peaceful, it makes me think about me as a lone wolf watching over a peaceful forest lookin at a waterfall. Man this should be on one of those soothing sounds CD's. And........an-.................zzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Awesome sculpting, looks like American Godzilla in a phase 2 mutation. Really digging the dark values and rough details all over its head.
These guys look more detailed every time you draw them in this humanoid style.(Also DAMN they're tall!) You just keep improving with each content you submit. keep it up man and as always looking forward to whatever comes next.
the downfall to making them better and better each time, its that its more time consuming :/
besides that, i love getting better and better. getting to the next level each time! :D
"Oh My God!" Were the first words that came out of my mouth when I saw this. Thanks for making an already sexy character even more so.
