Great cartoon! I develop websites for a living and this made my night :)
Bring me hamburger and American French Fry.
Your best work yet
I've watched many of your works throughout the year and I must say this was the most dynamic and insightful of them all. Don't get me wrong; your animations are full of originality and intelligent, clever humor. I'm simply impressed by this piece specifically. This is a subject I feel very strongly about : Health Care. Or Disease Care, should I say? In either case, this was excellent, it was funny, and it was well executed. Thank you.
"They're ATTACKIN' the GATE."
Sometimes I wanted to DASH that bastard who kept sayin (with such a snippy tone, mind you) "They're ATTACKIN the GATE ta WAYLAND KEEP!"
Intelligent, Witty, Astonishing, and Addicting!
Smartest game to come about in a long time. A pure masterpiece.
Ambitious, and excellent.
First and foremost, I can't sit here and bitch about the file size. As games and graphics become more complex, a larger file size is necessary for the sake of quality. QUALITY, in this game, was certainly delivered. I found it impressive your team, (and you can thank Evan Greenstone for this,) was able to work such complex situations into a fairly smooth delivery.
Artwork : Of course, I'm impressed as always by your work, MindChamber. Your style inspires me.
Music : Might I suggest different music for different sequences. The dodging sequences may have a different theme than the combat sequences, or at least a bit more variety in taste. This would keep the music from becoming redundant. I DO enjoy the genre, because it works well with the pace.
Gameplay : The use of zoom in sequences to trigger an upgrade was altogether my favorite part of this work. It was stunning, and it made me excited to continue forth.
In this setting, the mouse was difficult to use. A quick transfer in direction would often take me right off of the flash area. The key board settings were helpful for this problem, although they weren't responsive enough.
I absolutely love the idea of "combos." A continuing decimation of one's opponent is always welcome in my eyes, and it was extremely gratifying to obliterate the enemy robots only to be rewarded with a throng of upgrade shields.
The boss sequences could have been slightly more epic. More artwork and zoom in sequences. You pioneered new territory in flash gaming, why stop here?
Overall point : This was impressive. This juggernaut needs to escalate to a console. Yes, there are elements that need work. Your overall concept is brilliant, and I feel like this fish is a bit too big for internet streaming. You made it work, but with a little more effort (as if there wasn't enough poured into this piece!) you could make something bigger and greater. This project may be done in your eyes, as I'm sure you've spent countless hours into such an excellent design. I urge you to reconsider if that is the case, because I do think that this piece could be masterful on a larger platform.
Thank you for contributing such excellence, and raising the bar for other flashers.
thanks for the kind words man. I agree we shouldve mixed up the music a bit more. the game was already at 15 megs when the music started to get dropped in so we got alil thought it was a good idea to shave them down into managable loops.
as for a more dynamic boss encounter, I totally agree there's alot of stuff that got chopped because we were reaching the 40 meg mark, which is my upload limit.
If this type of style was ever tackled again it would have to be in real 3D . That would be the only way to make it run even smoother and keep the filesize down. Flash needs to catch up though, their 3D engines are really primitive.
This is one of the first techno/house songs I've listened to on Newgrounds that guides the listener through the entire track. I love it.
This made my day. AWESOME STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm glad I could do that! thanks man
I was wondering...
When you were drawing this, did you draw it with the intent of splitting it in half for the banner? Or was it split later as an afterthought. Before I saw this, the banner looked like 2 separate drawings, but with the same theme.
The more I look at it the more I feel you planned on splitting it down the middle, I guess I just find it interesting that you created it as one.
yeah i drew it with the intention of splitting it...i tried to avoid any major details besided maybe the pumpkin getting cut down the middle.
i guess i was semi-successful.
