F&P - My Very First Flash F&P - My Very First Flash

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A pleasure to watch

I haven't reviewed a movie in a while, but I picked yours out from the Judgment list because, I wont lie, it looked like an easy blam point. So I decided just to give it a chance, as I usually do, and boy, you surprised me.

The drawing was nice, the animation was impressive, the voice acting was top notch and just the general humour value was brilliant. The plot was moderately original, and the characters were funny, with great timing. You obviously have a creative mind, and a lot of potential. If you are serious about making Flash movies, I wouldn't be surprised if you gained some popularity very quickly with similar Flashes to these, as I think this is just what the Newgrounds audience is after: Some good art with some good one-liners after a hard day of doing whatever Newgrounders do. Good luck with any future work you do.

Wow, that was a text-book example of an encouraging review. Thanks =]

I have quite a few ideas for more episodes of similar length and style. Hopefully I can make a new one once in a while! Unfortunately I don't exactly have unlimited time, but this will certainly not be my last flash!


Sprite Tutorial V 2.0 Sprite Tutorial V 2.0

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Good, but...

A useful tutorial, maybe not original, but a worthy submission no doubt. A little complaint that I have is the grammer and punctuation. Less "u"s, more "you"s, capitalisation and no smileys mid sentence make grammar nazis like me protect. 3/5. GLITCH: When clicking on creator bio and returning to the menu, the song plays twice. Oh and side-note, I was just in the audio portal listened to that song and came back to Flash and heard it again. Big coincidence.

Lord of the Clocks pt. 1b Lord of the Clocks pt. 1b

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

You're different

Ah, if only all clock movies were like this. Newgrounds would be a better place. Don't get me wrong, some movies made by Clock users are pretty good - 3 and 4 worthy sometimes. But the majority of it is just daily spam, sent to annoy other users.
Perhaps you could reduce this somehow, that way you would have a better name for yourself. Instead of a gang of crappy "artists" who make a 3 or 4 frame clip with a B and a flashing background, giving away free blam points, you would be seen as a friendlly bunch of people where every submit would mean a good laugh for everybody. Consider that. I would also like to explain my scores a little more.

Graphics: Some very flashy work their, some of the best I've ever seen.
Style: A great and an original way to make a movie.
Sound: The music was a treat and the voices were well put down.
Violence: There wasn't really any apart from the torture scene.
Interactivity: A few good buttons
Humour: Some of the jokes, especially the ones containing Newgrounds were a giggle.

Altogether, I was expecting this to be a pathetic attempt showing Strawberry Clock and B over and over, but this actually deserved to be here. Like I said before, I was never expecting a Clock user to pull this off, but you've done it. If i never have to blam another "BBBBBRULZLOLURGAY" again, I will accept the Clocks, enjoy your movies, and share a good time around the Internet.

Until then I'm afraid that I'll have to still stay "Anti-Clock" to some users that persist on being unwanted users (eg. spamming all reviews and always saying "Strawberry Clock is the King Of the Portal")

But enough of my die-hard self-rules. I cant belive I'm saying "Well done" to a Clock but well done for giving me an enjoyable Lord of the Rings spoof and for helping to change my mind about some of the Clock Users.

<3,
TheDarkPaladin

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Too difficult towards the end.

This is a very well made, and original to an extent game. The graphics were crisp and there was a good learning curve. Well done.

My only complaint is after level 6 or so, the game started to get really difficult. I couldn't even finish level 8, no matter what I tried (Combos to increase score took too long, no combos to increase speed didn't work, combination of both worked even less.)

I know I shouldn't downvote the game because of its difficulty, but for a game with such a relaxed learning curve to suddenly go so hard, I cant finish even after 4 retries is a bit... Unfair, to say the least.

That's my only negative comment though, the rest of the game was brilliant. Maybe you could add different characters throughout the game? I dont think I've ever been more irritated with 2 customers and a phone ;D.



Bunny Invasion 2 Bunny Invasion 2

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Woah

This is easily the best game I've played in weeks. It has great graphics, addictive gameplay... It's got everything. The trophy system adds replay value to an already astonishingly long game. The story is basic, but very effective. The upgrades are well thought out and fair. The weapons are brilliant, fun to use and each has a distinct advantage on different waves to stop things getting boring. The bunnies were great. Awesome targets ;D. Although seeing the mini-boss characters more than once would be pretty nice.

I honestly cant think of anything that would improve this game. I thoroughly enjoyed playing through it, and I hope you go on to make other games!

Oh, and if you didn't get any high tier weapons by Wave 59, 20 grenades, 20 remote grenades and a fully upgraded 12-Gauge will do the trick too :D.



Game 103 RPG 2.5 Game 103 RPG 2.5

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good effort.

It's clear that you've put a lot of effort into making this, which is good, but it's not quite on it's way to being a memorable game yet.

1. Story. The game needs some sort of story. Even if you're not a writer of epic plays, you can surely come up with a basic story to hold the thing together.

2. Oddities. Why is there a dog? How does paying money to a building grant you skill? How does this skill enable you buy more things in a shop?

3. Graphics. Although I cant draw myself, I think the graphics do need a little clearing up. Maybe add a common interface instead of just dropping text and icons wherever there's a free space.

4. Game. Maybe include another game? If not, improve the collision detection to make sure it's as tight as possible, I thought it was a little unfair.

I don't mean to insult your work at all, on the contrary, it's clear your trying hard and I hope you go far, it's just not quite up to scratch yet. I'm very interested in this project, as aimless RPGs are just my cup of tea :).

1) a story - your the mayor of the town and you have to make the town better

2) the dogs there cuz its a feature, just like the game, the music shop etc.
Its Building skill, so you have to the ability to build!

3) Yeah, I really do need to do this, but I have so many graphics :/

4) Ya, I have come up with a ocean game idea where you have to collect stuff at the bottom but avoid sharks

Thanks for helping me improve the game with your suggestions! I will probably add them, I hope this does kick off sometime :)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very good.

This is a very nice track. The melody and rhythm are both very strong, but not overpowering. As "darthduba" said, the melody is repetitive, but it's catchy so it doesn't get boring. This is a song I'll have in my head a year from now and I'll think "Argh, this tune is so catchy, where have I heard it?", so I'll save myself the bother and favourite it now ;D. Well done!

If I had to offer constructive criticism, I'd say maybe add in a bridge where the main melody does some crazy improvization just before the end, but the song is great as it stands!

Neon Love (170bpm Trance!) Neon Love (170bpm Trance!)

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing; my first 10 in quite a while!

First off: Wow! I have a slight techno/trance bias so when I saw the title on the frontpage I was moderately excited. So I half-assed clicked expecting some crappy 40 second let down...

Instead I am presented with this awesome intro. Then melody. Sitting here, stunned, I write this review of the most technical, diverse, well thought through piece of music I have heard on Newgrounds in several weeks. From the plucky bassline, to the heavy arpeggios, to the reverbing saws, I enjoyed every second. Thank you, I hope you go far and continue to producve music of this standard!


Fionnhodgson responds:

Thanks for the great review!

I had a lot of fun making this, It was going to be a hardcore track, but making euphoric string sequences got the better of me, so I made it trancy!


Where Am I?? Where Am I??

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Cluttered, but not bad

Some quite advanced for your second song. It was very cluttered and had no real groove. I think your next step would be to just scan through some groove and beat tutorials and put some more groove in to it. Other than that, not to bad. Oh and the name doesn't really matter, a tip from me.


VitalNovix responds:

Thanks a lot for the advice. I'll have to jump on that, lol...
