don't listen to the haters, this is brilliant.
I don't get it whats the point
The point is on the end of the pencil.
Advice: Dispense with the plot.
This is freaking awesome. Uber fast mysterious creature type thing, unstoppable machine, explosions, people getting pwned, extreme skill, unstoppable forces colliding... it is the very formula for awesome.
But then I hear "who are you, what are you". This seems to imply that you plan to explain all that crap. Here's the thing- it doesn't matter all that much. Most of the time such exposition only gets in the way of the coolness. Certainly, reveal something, but don't do a long flashback with dialogue of whatever it is escaping from a government laboratory and vowing revenge on the people who made it a monster or something like that. The trick to good storytelling is to reveal everything through implication, and leave some things to the imagination.
Also, in conflicts of great skill, there should be clearly defined rules of the world that dictate the victor, rather than it being arbitrary and victory being a plot device. Combat is just about psychology as it is about skill and luck.
Anyways, congrats; first good thing I've seen on Newgrounds in a long time.
Don't let the plot bitches get you down.
Oh hell yeah.
Clown uses hax.
There needs to be a sequel to that madness game. Gameplay-wise, it's on par with many commercial titles.
That was awesome. You integrated the stuff you were trying to get across seamlessly with the thing. Good work. First time I can remember where satire was attempted and the character still truly seems like he believes in what he's talking about. Damn awesome job man.
No matter how good it is...
Nothing can top the memory of brilliance. Yes, the animation quality was incredible, and the jokes were well timed and humorous.
Nevertheless, the original relied on being unexpected. That was its main quality. This is a sequel. With more of the same, just better done. Which would be good, except the original relied partly on the fact that the picture quality seemed mostly crap for its humor. This relied partially on self-criticism. Which sucks. The original was awesome.
So... nice job, but you really shouldn't have. Really.
Wow, crazy. You know how to animate, I see.
The backstory was lame though. You should consider getting rid of it.
Ok... Some of it was good
...Personally, I don't think this will get through. People have a huge prejudice against stick movies that aren't super high-quality. I didn't like the plot myself- way too cliche, but as flash animations go, it was ok. Take out the grenade text part though, it's a unique aspect that makes you think, and explaining it is presumptuous and ruins the wtf moment.
Also, the ninja looks like a mummy.
Make the blood less shiny and with more frames, too. It looks somewhat crappy.
Take out the pauses too; they're only good to add suspense to a good plot, and (no offence) but that's not your movie's strong point right now.
have the guards move around more when they die, and make the timing more dramatic (less pause before they're killed, maybe even do all their deaths in 2 seconds).
If you edited it to cut out the unneccesary pauses in the action, it could be good. But I still wouldn't advise trying to get a stick movie through the portal.
good luck with future flash movies.
Tnx, really good review, i will have your advices in mind
the best animation I can remember ever seeing. Not even comparable to anything else- very unique.
