A hard way home.

Thanks alot for frontpage

This is the last part of Castle III, but not the end of the Castle series. A continuation will appear sooner or later. It may or may not end as you think, I hope you enjoy it though.




Rated 3 / 5 stars

you can only take sticks so far

this is pretty much as good as a stick flash can get, but other non stick flash are better. do normal characters next time

I disagree.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not bad.

It wasn't bad, but it just isn't my cup of tea. I've never really liked the whole Stickman shtick but I don't want that to domminate this view as I myself would find that mean. I can see this must have taken you a large amount of time, but the characters were so stereotypical. The plot has been used over and over again, just, not staged in a castle. I have to admit, I did enjoy the helicopter scene. I found it very realistic, of course, I would have given this a much higher score if it was not all stickmen and guns. Maybe a view decent sword fights and hey, maybe a little magic done in a manga style would have total changed my view of this entire thing. Infact, if you tweeked the story line a little and added the whole manga style I would have given this a straight 8 - 10. Besides from that, I think you choose a good lot of music that fitted well with what was happening and the blood was very detailed. Besides from that, I just didn't like this.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Well, then.

I don't exactly think this is very original. The invisible arms that slice people into pieces? Sounds a lot like Elfen Lied. The voice acting could be better, but the animation was pretty good.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


Criticise my critique all you will, but I don't feel this flash animation is as worthy of praise as everyone says it is. Don't get me wrong, it's not all bad, I just don't think it's stunning. I'm not one for long reviews, so i'll cut straight to it:

Use of slow motion special effects - I thought this was stylish and made it look professional.
Music - fitting. Not stunning selection but suited the movie.

Voice acting - the vocals were stereotypical of the characters and were quite monotonous. I would have expected the general, in a situation such as he was in, not-to-speak-quite-like-this.
Camera angles - could have been more interesting... at times i felt the action and the style was compromised by the angle of the shot.
Stick men - there's only so much artistry you can do with stick men. More humanoid figures would have raised my rating up significantly. Stick men, 3d or not, don't make it feel realistic - something a flash like this seems to aim for.

Overall - not bad, but not amazing. Clearly you spent a lot of time on this and I dont want to make it sound like it was a waste, but i feel it shouldn't be way up there with the score it has. Still, time makes the greats on newgrounds. If it is as deserving as people say, so be it!

It's a good thing you share your honest point of view and tell my what the flaws are, instead of just saying "it s ucks"
