High hopes, eh?
Quite frankly, I know what you're trying to do, and I'm all for it. I'm sayin', it's easy to watch, and I'm not even going to say anything about the voices, but what REALLY got me was the subtitles.
I'm thinking that Kratos, Kratus, and Kratoss are the same people, right? Also, punctuation makes a big difference, and what were Oden? Those big mushroom fella's?
Anyway, the flash seems to have a firm foundation. The music was nifty, and I know how it is with low-budget animation, so, I guess my advice is to spend slightly more time on everything: animation's smoothness, the effects (and trying to display them--I had no idea why people were turning into balls for), and maybe invest in a graphics tablet if you don't have one.
Keep it up, though. It looks like a very promising series.
That was probably the sexiest introduction to a flash. Ever.
In fact, I was so enthralled by the scribbles, I dedicated my life to coloring people.
Mmmm. That was hawt.
I'd like to bend this video over a barstool and fuck its brains out.
Also, a fun little thing to do, if you move the window it's in horizontally, it looks like the train goes either really slow, or really fast.
I found that very, very amusing.
Thank you for realizing this entry's layered entertainment value
It was great, actually, loved the wit, but there seems to be something wrong with the statement, "well i guess your not as dumb after all..."
Also, I loved the text, but I think there's actually a plug-in for Flash that does that for you, but I could be mistaken.
Anyway, you did great, and I love the minimalistic take on it! Keep it up!
Yeah, i finally found a way to do that with actionscript,
thanks for the reference though. :]
Glad you liked it :D
Man, I don't know what everyone's talking about; I, for one, loved this game, it's better than all those other Rock-Out games (you have my vote, at least), because, let's face it, the others have the one thing really going for all of them: some cheap imitation of Guitar Hero.
I've never played this game, by the way, this Elite Beat Agents...in fact, I don't even own a Nintendo DS (nor do I support Nintendo in any way, after Super Mario Sunshine...ick. Morals.), and maybe that's why I found this game so much fun, especially the last song.
From what I hear, though, it's supposed to have some kooky graphics in the background, and, just to piss you off, I'll say it, too. This game would be better with them (don't feel bad, though, I believe I'm empathetic your situation...).
The beats, from what I can see, are a little off, but that's just because I've been a percussionist all my life, and we pick up on the slightest things in the world. I didn't find it nothing to be too stressed out about, like some people on here, and I know how hard it is to match up a tempo of 120+ with only 24 (or 12, or whatever) frames/sec, so I'm empathetic about that, as well.
I do hope you'll release a full-er one, use this as a beta or something, and build on it. I had a blast with it, for the ten-or-so minutes I played (the songs are a bit repetitive).
If I were to suggest anything, I'd say J-pop or J-rock (just because it seems so fitting, although I understand the confusion over the music), and, seeing how it's already "stealing" ideas, as one so eloquently wrote earlier, if you really felt like adding background animation, just take a few sprite videos and toss 'em all together for the backgrounds.
Thanks a lot for the review.
I do agree with you with the graphics in the background and all but I can't draw it xD. Next time, I'll ask my friend to help out.
This one is basically a beta because I didn't release it to see the comments that everyone had. In the next release, I'll be sure to add more songs and stuff. I especially like J-pop and J-rock so I would put those there.
Well, I'm glad that you liked playing it :D!
Probably one of the most...
Unique games I've ever played (aside from Gallant Seventh). Sure, the lack of a "powerup shop" or something like that is a bit downsizing, but to base a shooting game around Sousa is...I lack an adjective to describe it.
Although, Tuba really isn't my instrument. It's...a bit towering.
A stroke of genius.
I've been coming to and fro frequently, and I finally noted through the cursory glances of your demise. I began to listen to this song, and as the bass began to filter through, I had a shiver run through my spine like very few times before.
This (and Basking in Dead Light) are by far, my two favorite songs, not only of your's, but of everyone else in this genre. I daresay, it isn't fair for everyone to have such a musically inclined fellow like yourself around, but to remain would be, perhaps, a dawning of a new audial savior.
Farewell, and I assure you, whatever works you perform in the future, I'll keep a close ear for.
P.S. What program do you use? I've been dabbling in a bit of everything recently, and this is quite an inspiring work. Thank you.
I use Fruity Studio's, but the sounds you're hearing have nothing to do with the program itself. If you read this, send me an email, and i'll give you the full details.
Thanks for the review ^^. I am glad you were able to enjoy these works.
This is probably your best, in my opinion
I really like the usage of all the instruments, and the fusion between the percussion's techno-esque beats, and the rest of the ensemble's classical tones.
I left a review just in case you read this, I'm trying to do a student CG film in Alias|Wavefront's Maya using this song. If you have any concerns or would like me not to, e-mail me at Verimuscordis@aim.com.
of course, I have no problem with you using the song, I would like to see it after it is completed ^^.
Now that is pretty strange, many people have told me that this song was one of my worst. I am glad it has found a pair of ears that enjoy it to this degree.
Thanks for the review TengokuxJigoku ^^.
