This sprite movie is finally here! I worked hard on it and would appreciate reviews.

**I respond to all reviews**

It could be a lot better.

At first it seemed like it was going to be really good. Then, it started going down hill. The random part at the end where he gets squished by a foot didn't seem funny to me. His walking went pretty smoothly. I think that it was pretty funny how he was climbing down the cliff and fell. I thought he was going to continue getting hurt on his way to the arcade. But no, that's not what happened. I think that you could have done a lot better and put an actual good story line to it.

Like I said, I did this on a whim so didn't really plan anything out. I'm working on some projects though, so maybe you will see something improved in the future.

An "interesting" little animation.

~The good~

The animation moved very smoothly, for a sprite flash, also, I haven't seen Ness sprites in a long time, so that added to the originality. The music was suited very well, and the sound effact were very "sprite-ish", which was cool and fit the graphcs.

~The bad~

Some parts felt really useless to the story, actually, the whole plot was pretty mediocre. One part that was pointless in this flash is when he falls off the ledge and wakes up in five hours, you shouldn't have had that in. The ending was completely stupid too, it felt like you just got lazy near the end and just decided to end it a very stupuid way.

Overall, a pretty well done sprite flash, but a little too random. I hope this review was helpful!

That's basically what happened. I would say it more just lack of ideas that laziness. I made this on a whim and had no plans before I made it.

It was alright

The flash animation was mediocre at best. Instead of focusing on the negatives, I will focus more on improvements: Your text moves too slow. Many of us can read faster. Also, when Ness blacks out, there is one pixel you forgot to shade in. I played Earthbound, and I don't think you could climb down like that, so that made me a little frusterated on how you didn't make it like the game. It was a pretty good parody if you played the Earthbound series, and it was alright. There's a lot of room for improvement, and I think you can do it.
Grade: C

FattyWhale responds:

Ness climbed down like that just because I was lazy and thought it would be boring to have him walk around the whole way.

Not the best

This wasn't very good. I found the music really annoying and the humor... not so humorous. Judging from your soundboards, I know you can pull something better off. But hey, I can see you tried. 3/10

FattyWhale responds:

Err not sure what animating has anything to do with soundboards..but OK!

Hmmmm i hate the music, the animation was below sub par, There was no point to the story either, Ness goes to this clif falls off for no reason then goes to the arcade and gets stepped on. you need some more practice on your flash skills and should think of a better plot for a movie.

FattyWhale responds:

it sucked, i know...the music? it's from earthbound!
