The Promise of Home The Promise of Home

Rated 3 / 5 stars

I'm seeing a pattern here...

I barely post reviews here on Newgrounds, but for this movie, I make an exception.

I liked your submission called Her and Mine 1001 wishes, but it had exactly the same flaws as this movie, notably the mediocre graphics, and especially the animation. You have a knack for influencing people emotionally, and you should definitely keep your focus there. The poor quality of the movie itself weakens the effect, reducing it to mediocrity.

One thing you should ditch is the pattern you seem to apply to your movies. You basically pick a song, play it twice, and show a slightly animated slide-show in the process. I noticed how you incorporated a running animation somewhere in the middle of the movie, it didn't look all that bad. If you just take a little more time and use this kind of animation thoughout most of your scenes, you could definitely make the whole thing easier to watch, and improve the storytelling.

The combination of on-screen dialogue and music works, but try and use two different songs, and don't let them determine the length of the movie. Get rid of the silence in the middle and try and use music without any lyrics.

I hope you find this review useful, and that it might help improve your next works. I'm definitely going to watch them.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good screenplay!

I like this flash, but not because of the graphics. I think the graphics seriously lacked, but the awesome screenplay and sound made up for that. It's rare to see someone make a great flash with sub-par graphics, and that's why I comment.

The screenplay's alright, the sound's good too, what you need to work on is how to visualize it. If you can manage to pull that off, you'll sure have one awesome piece of flash. But heck, I gave this an 8. You're definitly heading the in right direction :]

Original...

Very original concept, but the execution lacks. The moving camara was very annoying and made it very hard to watch, especially during the fight scene with all the stats on screen.

Then again, the concept of having a life action FF fight is very orignial, hence I gave it a 6/10 (or 3/5). If you ever decide to make a sequal, try to put the camara on a tripod and add some sound effects.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Deliciously retro

A very amusing, albeit a very frustratingly difficult game. The addition of rules is a nice twist to the genre that really makes one rethink their usual platforming strategy.

Here's my level, it's pretty difficult and tightly timed.

This is awesome

This is definitly one of those games that comes out of nowhere and makes my jaw drop from amazement. Mostly because of the wonderful visual style, the appealing frame by frame animation and the challenging gameplay. Granted, the music tends to become kind of annoying, but on the other hand, it fits in with the overal style of this game.

I don't comment on Newgrounds very often, but for this game, I gladly make an exeption.

Congrats dude :]

Anyway, I have some remarks. First of all, add sound effects, sound effects would make this flash complete. Now it really feels like it's missing something.

Also, at one point, my giraffe got stuck in space. I guess this is not supposed to happen.

Anyway, kewl game and good work.
