And Then You Die...

I always wondered how well a JRPG would translate over to a fighting game. If all the movements were done so quickly. We start off at a normal state of affairs, here's something you probably shouldn't bother yet, but you're going to anyways because you feel strong enough and thus we enter the battle. I loved the artwork and animation on this, it is absolutely perfect. The fluid motions on each character was just amazing to watch from beginning to end for each and every movement.

The sound effects to were spot on. The music was fitting for the title screen, field area, and I was afraid that you would switch to something grandiose for the actual fight scene, thankfully though you kept with the same theme of the past songs as well, the only difference was the change of quality from the video game world to the anime world, which as a fan of JRPGs it was like I knew exactly what was being played out.

My only nitpick is that I wish you would have switched back and forth between the anime scene and the video game scene, that would have been cool to see, but I must admit that after seeing this whole battle and seeing 9999 above the character's head and they just fall over and die was hilarious. Overall this is fantastic!

The Price of Living The Price of Living

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Listen To That Money Talk!

Where to begin with this one. The artwork I thought was quite nice and the animation flowed smoothly, but still a bit sharp, which I liked. The music I thought was good as well, a little melancholy throughout it fit nicely though. The thing I really like about this was the story, I haven't had something make me cringe like that in quite a while. It reminds me a bit of Felix Colgrave's movie on here "The Pigpen", a similar concept with a widely different message, which I liked yet feel you kind of got lost along the way. The characters are money, he rips money from himself to pay for things, and yet he is given money. A small flaw, but the only one here I can find. All in all, a delightful movie.

Hero Hero

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I'm a bit mixed here. Although I did enjoy the story and the animation, I have to say that the design of the buildings, items, and characters are a bit lazy at times. Also the pacing on this was a bit fast, right when I saw the scientist grab the jet pack and saw the bomb at the bank I already knew how the rest of this story was going to play out. I can appreciate animation that can tell the whole story without words, but I think this would have been suited with some voice acting. There are no sound effects, which I think there should have been, plus the music although good, didn't fit with the animation. I still liked it though, the story was really sold me on it, even though the pacing wasn't done well.

Thank you for the honest review. I was aware of the pacing, but didn't know how to make it better. And yeah, I just liked the song, but I can see how it doesn't fit. Also for the backgrounds, I don't have photoshop, so I had to draw it with flash, which was terrible. Thanks for the review!


Blume Blume

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This was absolutely beautiful. The story was really got to me, it is a wise tale of a holiday that many celebrate, but do not know why. I wished you would have delved deeper into this including the different games and feasts they have, but at the same time I think it would have taken away from the message. The world presented here is very beautiful. The narration is just perfect, complimented by Hania's Haru Song it makes for an amazing story. I loved this.

Slaves of Farmville Slaves of Farmville

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Although it seems a bit late since most of the Farmville hype is gone from Facebook, I still found this to be creative and funny. Instead of just taking jabs at Farmville, you mainly focused on the players. I liked how you used the whole idea of slavery and different Facebook users tilling the fields. I also liked how Zynga was using Facebook to see what different players would want as well. The voice acting was perfect, if I were to nitpick I would say that I would have liked a deeper southern drawl on the Zynga Master, but that's about it. The music choices were great and so were the sound effects. Using The History Channel and real events in history to tie it together with Farmville was just amazing writing. It makes me want to see more events like these tied together with other Facebook games, like the Mafia Wars game. Overall, I loved this from beginning to end. It was stellar writing, characters, and animation.

Thank you very much for such a profound review. Yes it is a bit late. We have actually created it back in 2011 on posted on Youtube. And recently decided to share with Newgrounds as well.


A New Holiday A New Holiday

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Pretty nifty I must say. The artwork and animation are very lazy, I know it was what you were going for, but a lot of stick movies that appeared on Newgrounds were a bit better and there was a lot more going on that I think you missed when putting this together. I liked the idea and the vintage presentation of it, but that's about it really.

Down to Earth Down to Earth

Rated 3 / 5 stars

I wanna start with the positives first. The artwork and animation are beautiful! You have done some great work here. The music was a great choice, but I think you could have made a better choice from the Audio Portal. The story though is where I got confused. The Earth and the Moon get in a fight, the Moon leaves. Misses the Earth and then comes back. An interesting idea, but not conveyed well.

I decided to read your Author's Comments to see what I may have missed and I pretty much hit the nail on the head. You state that without being able to have facial features or dialogue, that is no excuse. You can tell a great story without words or faces and you have failed to do so here. You did this to get the handle of Blender and it paid off, but I think you focused more on working with Blender than anything else really.

*Story - Not Executed Well


Pahgawk responds:

Thanks! You're absolutely right about my focus. Hopefully the next thing I make will be a little better rounded.


Holiday Holiday

Rated 2 / 5 stars

I'm going to be completely honest, I didn't get it. The most I got was that he lost someone special and that this someone haunts him every year. Nothing much is explained beyond that. The voice acting although good is hard to hear over this music, which feels out of place. The artwork and animation are quite nice. This movie just left me confused, the story wasn't paced well and you left me in the dark for quite a bit. Mystery is nice, and it makes the viewer intrigued, but execution is everything, and this was executed poorly.

This was a bit better than the previous one. The artwork is still unimaginative, the animation is still very poor, the sound effects were better. The voice acting isn't good, you really need to get some voice actors here on Newgrounds or at the very least a better microphone. The writing this time around was hard to understand due to the voice acting, I had to watch it twice to get anything, and even then it was quite short and didn't really go anywhere. I think you need to work on your pacing a bit, slow down and take your time. Again, there is a lot of potential here... its just not going anywhere.

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

The artwork and animation I thought was a bit lackluster. I think you could have spent more time on this. The voice acting wasn't too great, but the dialogue was fast paced and funny in terms of making fun of anime. The sound effects weren't all that great either, a bit clunky and static. I think there is potential here, but the delivery just didn't do it.
