Lacks direction and originality. The part where the girl falls in love with the guy needs more dynamic character growth. The scene in the woods was poorly scripted and felt like cardboard. I could have done without the werewolf character entirely and I felt like he didnt contribute much to the story. The protagonist needs to be more clearly defined and needs to emote more.
Oh I'm sorry. This wasn't another twilight installment? I must be getting bad at telling a part overdone, rehashed, poorly written, and poorly voiced shit with mediocre graphics.
Half a star for effort.
Let me know when you do something original.
As a huge aficionado of acappella, I must say that i believe this to be a wonderful tribute to both the song and the genre. While within the "series" as jimmy90 calls it, this is somewhat of a non-sequitur, it was be fool-hardy to assume that donkeybazooka is going for such. It is indeed indicated that the author does not care for the 1st part of this series. Rather, the transition from part 1 to this one is similar to the random song and dance number in the movie Enchanted. While it came as somewhat of a surprise even for that movie, it was well placed and effective and this music video serves the same purpose.
In fact, I have taken to watching it once a day now not only because I love the song but also because the interpretation that the animation gives it plays well to how I conceptualize the piece.
Wonderful animation, great concept, 10/10, 5/5
Praise well deserved for a well done flash. Good job donkiebazooka!!
Ive read a couple of reviews about this movie and what people have thought and it is my humble opinion that people are looking at this movie and judging its genre on aspects of a different genre. People, you have to realize what kind of movie this is and judge it occordingly. Look at the style of the movie and make judgements according to its style. If u did not like the style then as intelligent human beings you should be able to appreciate the style of cartoon being created here. There are hundreds of cartoons on Disney channel, Cartoon Network, and the like that have worse art from an artistic standpoint as far as effort goes to draw but do exceedingly well for the style being presented and the ideas behind it. This flash is a stylistic piece and must be treated as such in order for the humor in it to be found.
With that said, as far as style of this type of cartoon i give you a 9 for matching the style to that of slapstick, absurdist cartoons. Artwork haves a 9 as well for simple yet efficient animation techniques and intelligent uses of shading to promote ideas and further the style. The artwork complimented the style throughout the piece and worked to promote the humor behind it. As far as choices made, they all fit the style very well with absurd twists to them which helps to bring the audience in with the style.
All in all, a solid piece of flash work and an improvement on your earlier idea of the same genre. I applaud your work and compliment your efforts. Looking forward to the next one.
Love the game. Interesting content, interesting gameplay, and interesting concept. Ignore Kwing (who rants about the gameplay being slow, the hints being unhelpful, and the environment not being immersive). He lives in a world where every hurdle in a game must be explicitly spelled out or he cannot solve the puzzle. Its a disease of modern gaming that I am thankful this game avoids. It could also be that he simply isnt smart enough to solve simple puzzles but there is no way to tell.
The gameplay was simple with a well thought out mechanic. Better to focus on one thing and do it well than to focus on more things and do them poorly. The art was pleasing and the music helped to set the mood of the game. The puzzles were logical and the hints were unobtrusive. At times, I thought the hints (not the control hints but the logical hints) gave away a little too much but all and all great pacing.
The concept of allowing time to pass to solve obstacles has great potential. I like what you did here but I think its applications could go wider. Cant wait to see what you turn out next.
Above all else, don't sacrifice the gameplay or the artistic direction of the game for the modern era COD/GTA/MADDEN/AC crowd. Games like 400 years are where the industry needs to go.
I just wish the real counterstirke was that easy. *sigh* Nice job though. Smooth graphics. Realistic combat. Nicely made. Maybe u should implement money and have us buy other pistols or SMGs or maybe even Rifles. Your choice.
Awesome game man! This thing rocks out. im sure ull go on to do something very constructive in your life unless u already have. Great job man. I really like this program code (being a novice programmer my self)
