Well that was awesome, nice animation and art work. Except for those grey extras walking through the school, ugh that made me gag. It had an entertaining storyline. The only things that really stop me from giving a higher score are those god-awful subtitles (they just looked unpleasant and distracting with their bright colours. and also there was no option to turn them off) and the boring, boring, boring, boring, boring, boring replay screen. Looking forward to the next episode and giving you a better score.
Shall need duck tape the next time my brother starts telling me about his latest game no matter what it is I'm doing. Secondly isn't much easier with a drawing pad? Thirdly WOO FALL OUT BOY!!!!
Very good story!!
I only gave you a 8 because it wasn't anything outstandingly original or unpredictable. I read some of the other people's comments and I find them mostly annoying. I write stories so I could see where you were going with this from the scene right after he had the dream, and it's a beautiful morale. But it seems everyone else is only looking for action so they don't even think about what they're seeing and assume that it explodes, and then they're all confused and vote badly. Am I right, that is what most of you are thinking? It doesn't blow up, this is something serious and if you want explosions you clearly shouldn't be watching this
I think anything that contains a mexican cat with a jetpack and an interdimensional portal to another world that seems to be made up of soley bacon deserves a 10
Well I thought that it got the message through quite clearly. The man smokes and he takes 5 more steps, falls over and stops moving, most certainly dead. I believe this animation was a big exaggeration about the effects of smoking because he smokes one cigarette and dies a few seconds later. Your message got put through clearly to me at least! And how much do you want to bet that the people who say they don't think the message is clear are smokers or know smokers.
You should go with Cynic-san's idea (just below mine) and do your next animation on "Put Down the Big Mac" I think that would be a great follow up to this animation!
10/10 because the animation was good, the artwork was excellent and the message got through clearly.
Almost totally worth a 10. Grerat work the lot of you! The only thing I really would think would help is a hover stage on your buttons! People always forget them and I think that ruins it. Furthermore WOO AUSSIES!!!
Looking forward to giving you a 10 on the next episode!
I don't want it to be over!
These animations you have made are truly historical! They should never be forgotten.
This is great, I love it. One thing though: you really, really need to work on your grammar because the subtitles are just shocking! Punctuation missing or wrong, capital letters where they shouldn't be and not where they should be. I'm not sure if I should write a review on someone's grammar but I do think an 18 year old would know "you're" isn't spelt with a capital. Great (Hopefully one day perfect) work!
Pretty darn good but there's always room right?
I have to admit that I don't think it needs a massively descriptive background story. The mystery in just watching a story unfold that one knows nothing about is a perfect story. Mystery is a good dramatic tension.
Things to work on though (As this is a review):
1- The initial loading bar needs to be a little more obvious. I was sitting at my screen wondering if it was done because it wasn't saying "Ready" or "Play" anywhere. If a viewer is confused about something as simple as that it needs fixing.
2- Seriously dude THE FLASHING! If you're not going to re-do this animation and take out some of or lesson the strength of the flashes at least put a warning in your comments or before it starts because there could be people on the floor having an epileptic seizure. You really have to think about what people could be watching this not just you.
Ok that's all form me
What I want to say here is "I really don't like this submission because it is pointless and I don't even find it amusing" but I'm not going to say that because we, as NewGrounds users, are supposed to write reviews; not give personal comments.
I agree with what a few other people have said. The characters voices cannot be made out therefore we do not know what they are saying, ergo this flash submission loses all meaning and substance. It would not be hard to open the file and just boost the talking so it is louder or the music so it is quieter.
Did that flash have anything to do with the title "BotBrigade TimeTrials #1" because I saw the number 5 at the start and thought, "Ok it has a countdown", and then the number just went away. Does this flash have a meaning at all? Is it supposed to entertain because I do not feel entertained?
It took you three years? I'll assume that you spent about a month on it in those three years, and that you spent the other 25 months doing other things because that was not three years work.
Oh and that flashing background in the second scene: OW! I could be on the floor having a seizure right now. If you are going to have things like that you HAVE TO PUT A WARNING IN. Try thinking about the people viewing the flash and not just yourself.
One good thing though, it was short so it didn't waste too much of my time.
If you don't like this review then either fix the flash or take it down because I'm sure you'll just get more of these reviews.
dont be so acusing.
If anything this review is a lot like calling me gay, for example, just in a more in between the lines kind of thing.
