UPDATE: The Extras page is now about as updated as its gonna get.

A mercenary squadron takes on a military cruiser.

I'd like to thank all reviewers and those who gave me feedback for making my efforts worthwhile. Expect more flash by me in future :)


Years have passed since the last invasion of planet Hivez; Years of thriving economy and colonial expansion. This would enable countless options and freedom for the ambitious if there was no strict mility supervision to put any projects on hold that are even remotely threatening to the welfare of the Hivezian empire.


A cruiser class vessel of the Hivezian military suffered a main engine malfunction while it was on patrol. It drifted off its course into a suspicious looking nebula where a shocking event was unveiled. A hidden research laboratory owned by Altyre Incorporated (An innovating company specialized in propulsion) is performing illegal weapon tests. A fighter squadron of mercenaries is launched on sight to eliminate the witnessing vessel. The Cruiser is specifically designed to fight small agile ships, but without the main engines, things will get very complicated. The crew on the cruiser cannot inform central command because the nebula is riddled with electromagnetic storms making all communication outside nearly impossible. Because of this, anything goes. This area is completely unregulated. Will they escape to report their discovery, or will they take the secret into their grave?



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Hmm...nice one

You are obviously one of the most talented people on Newgrounds as this flash is amazing. However i think next time you should make a more user-friendly story (simpler also) and it'll be perfect.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


It looks really good but is quite boring. That`s all I have to say.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


i think that the graphics where REALLY good but i think you should create a good story behind if it hits the store as a game im SOOO gonna buy it.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Credit as a Flash movie is unwarented.

I will not say that this is a bad movie, but it should not be deemed a 'revolutionary' Flash movie, but a sub par 3D Animation, or mediocre with the mediums combined. Although it is well put together, the native Flash imagrey is not of the highest quality(the fire, explosions and pilot), and the bitmap image quality is lowered by all of the scaling and rotating.

Where most reviewers seem to put there 10 out of 10 is the 3D effects. These are not produced in Flash, they are created in Milkshake 3D with a rotating camera. These images are rendered as a sequence at different angles, and put together , frame by frame, just like a video. His 3D models were alright, but this movie did not show any remarkable skill in Flash. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this site is to rate the ability of Flash artists, not those who happen to put one frame after another and call it hard work. I don't mean to say that the 3D modeling was crap, but give credit where credit is due.

McFretN responds:

I did not put one frame after another. The way you failed to see this proves that your judgement of flash skill is incorrect. The ships have individual parts motion tweened in a way to make it look 3D. IF i had made a new screenshot for each frame, file size would be gigantic.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


nice use of 3d graphics
