Where does this seem familiar.
Where to start..
Overall, your idea with this whole project seems lost, wayward, and often as if it does not know what it wants to be. It collects ideas, scenes, and bits and pieces of similarities and mashes them together lazily. For example, your anatomy with your characters seems almost traced off of the bodies from Dragon ball Z. I would almost have forgiven this, if you put as much detail on the things you DIDNT copy from, such as faces, monsters, ect... The music, sound effects, and so forth didnt help considering they were also practically cut and pasted from movies and soundtracks. Again, this normally doesn't bother me, but the fact that everywhere you seem to look here is plagued by unoriginality really made it hard for me to enjoy this.
Though through the entire flash i couldn't take it seriously. I at first found it very difficult to decide whether this was to be taken seriously or not. I kept expecting some funny joke to lighten the dull "Tension" but it never really came. The voice acting completely ruined what atmosphere you had created through unneeded violence and dialogue. The very obvious echo effects, pitch changes that were used as an excuse for audio effects would have been cool, had this been ten years ago when they were new. Now, with what we have, its clumsy, embarrassing, and almost pointless. The writing seemed.. Non existent.
I could go on but im sure that someone somewhere will disagree and claim this to be an abusive review for whatever reason. I know you put effort into this, and im not trying to bash you down but its honestly how i feel. You spent time and put your own style of animation even if it incorporated familiar themes.
I'll basically give you a 3/10.
- Good animation, but its clear you did some tricks to cut corners to save yourself time.
- Sound quality was lacking and voice acting honestly hurt my ears at times.
- Story was uneventful, forgettable, and overall cliche. The fact that all that really happened in the entire episode was that he got up, killed some stuff, and encountered Gannon really makes me afraid to imagine how long you plan to draw this out.
In the end, i really dont feel this deserves to be put on front page above work that could easily surpass this. Peace.
a clone of gurren lagann and Dragon ball Z
I enjoyed the it a little but not enough to give it praise.. why? well because:
1)the voice acting needs work. It sounds like you/whoever was just whispering into the mic at times when the characters are supposed to be yelling. it was pretty obvious nearly all of the characters are the same person's voice just in a deeper/higher pitch too..
2)The entire tournament concept was essentially copied from dragon ball Z. Two people fighting, crashing into walls, old man spectating.. ect.. as well as several of the sound effects.
3)The characters were very poorly developed.. They seemed dry, lifeless, and unrelatable.
4) The last whole 2 minutes were AGAIN copied from an anime, this time Gurren lagaan.. In Gurren Lagann in the first episode a giant robot mech breaks through the ceiling in a small town and nearly destroys everything soon to be saved by a mysterious girl (yoko).. Which is nearly identical to this.. To make it worse your character "Sherbert" and "pokes" both have characteristics as the character "Simon" from Gurren lagann (blue hair, goggles, collar shirt..) But as soon as i heard the "Fire from the heavens" line that honestly blew my mind..
Im not going to lie, this is honestly just a pile of compiled concepts and ideas smashed together with shotty animation and voice acting... I'm sorry but after watching this twice im not sure if this was intended to be a joke or not...
Im the hand :P
I find this actually very ironic because im a very dedicated artist and i have a girlfriend who is just like annie. The name of the flash itself is a very interesting choice and I personally like it a lot. The animation is original and unique and the lack of actual speech is very interesting. I found myself both laughing and smiling while watching this the entire way through. Cant wait for p2 5/5 10/10
Well thanks, man! It won't be long, let me tell ya. Probably within a week of me writing this, in fact. See you there!
You have a lot to learn..
It seems from the reviews below me that we all have a universal opinion over this "game" if you can even call it that. we are all very well aware of the slow character, the bad graphics, hit detection, controls, and so forth. I hope you as an author at least address these problems or attempt to fix them. My only main surprise was how you actually looked at this game in the current state that it is with all of its flaws, glitches, and bugs and decided that it was the final product and should be published to this site .. If you look at the other popular games to newgrounds they don't have NEARLY as many problems as this does .. i understand you put effort into this and i understand you lost valuable time from your life but honestly it .does. not. show. My recommendation for you is to next time make sure everything actually WORKS properly before you finish something..
But to make it worse you try to act like you're capable enough to be past this. The truth is from what I've seen and what everyone else is saying, you're nothing even close.. i could go on for hours about the issues here but ( like this game ) it would just be wasting my time.
It needs serious work.
I tried to like it. i really did. But its way too hard to play enjoyably.. Its fun for about 25 minutes until things get way too difficult to fend off. When there are about 30 spaces for enemies to come and only about 8 of those spaces can have bunkers that to begin with is a serious flaw. But the major problem is that the amount of defences needed to cover JUST the front line before the harder enemies start to pour in is essentially impossible.
I understand entirely that you want the player to help with the machine gun ect but when it takes 50 machine gun rounds to kill a single robot is just plain wrong. When you cant rely on bunkers and watch towers and your strongest weapon does little to nothing then how are you supposed to win? You cant build up more resources because eventually the strong enemies are appearing randomly on one of the 30 entrance points... If its just a beta then i sincerely hope you fix this before you actually make this into a game..
Overall the graphics & sound were good but then again those two things dont make up a good game...
I love the game but after maxing out my hearts and getting double jump, regeneration and getting my running jumping and healing as far as i could i decided to fight the nightmare boss and about 1/3 of his health in the boulder attack came down all in one collum while i was in a corner. It didnt kill me because i still had about 6 hearts left but it still counted it as a loss. Great game but i really dont feel like playing it after bug losing.
The game itself reminds me of cave story a lot. pixels are always a win in my book and the music was great. Sound is classic and nostalgic. one of my favorite games on newgrounds
Long time listener
I just wanted to say that im a huge fan of what you've been doing. I've had your songs on my Ipod for a couple years now and i like to keep it updated with your newest tracks :) Every time i walk to classes or draw in my free time i ALWAYS listen to your music. Its truly awe inspiring. This is no exception :D It feels so cool and calming, just perfect for relaxing and winding down. I cant get enough of your tunes, so keep up the good work my friend!
Man that's awesome! I love when I hear that people actually do that :)
I love the fast pace, which is what in my opinion every good DnB song needs. It would be good for a battle scene or fight in a game :D I gotta check out more of your work. 10/10 5/5 Downloaded.
Wow!! Thanks!! I'm glad you like it!! :D
If i ever made and actual video game or movie i would want this song to play for the final boss. This sounds like it could actually BE in a movie or game. The Organ in the background is just so shadowy and dark. The entire song just fits the name perfectly. I've already downloaded and favorited this. I totally love it. This site needs more songs like this.
Wow, I'm glad you love it man. About the organ, as I said in another response, the idea came from Yoko Shimomura and Michiru Yamane.
Honestly, this song was a miracle of a composition. It's so different in tonal quality and style from the rest of my songs, and yet sounds much better than my other ones. It's easily the best song I've ever made. I guess I'm trying to say that I love this song as much as you do hahaha
And if you're looking for more songs like this, just surf around the classical section. There's plenty of amazing artists here.
You're a really good artist. It looks a lot like an actual photograph to me. Way better than the stuff i do :P I'd love to try it! :D
thanks! Go ahead and try it!
