It's a huge honour to have won the first NG Tank Award.
To be honest, Brackenwood wouldn't be what it is today without the generosity of Newgrounds and the supportive community here.
Thanks everyone for the years of support :D


Waterlollies: Bitey's short-sighted arrogance lands him in a world of hurt.

If you have a slow computer, you will probably experience severe frame-dropping throughout some actionscripted particle scenes. Flash Player 9 required, fast computer and Safari browser (the best for viewing Flash movies) strongly recommended

- - update:
- - if you're having trouble viewing it at 25fps, Waterlollies is now on YouTube. Check my channel:

edit: thanks for the Portal Awards and front page, and thanks everyone for the amazing score and all the great reviews!

For hardcore Brackenwood fans this will be nothing too new, apart from one or two new creatures. Anyone new to Brackenwood will find this is the most complete Brackenwood story so far. Still I have lots of work to do on my story skills so future Brackenwood movies will have greater depth.

Thanks to Newgrounds, this movie was scored professionally by Nathan McCree. He's the guy that did the music on the Tomb Raider games (!) so I'm grateful that he agreed to work on this with me. Thanks to him and Tom Fulp, this movie sounds amazing.

Thanks also to Michael Welsh for ironing out some actionscript bugs for me at the last minute!

Wow. After all the hype, all the anticipation, I NEVER thought it would be this epic. Everything was beautiful, every scene, every frame was perfect. I admit to pausing the movie a few times just to stare and zoom in to some of the scenery. You have officially raised the bar again, you've created the most beautiful flash cartoon of all time. I truly felt now more then ever I fully felt the full speed and agility of Bitey, even more so than the Yuyu. The entire opening scene had me gob smacked, it was truly an amazing introduction, and anyone who had never watched a brackenwood cartoon would know exactly what Bitey is about.

Everyone was characterised awesomely. The Auld sage warning Bitey about the waterlolly by simply throwing it in front of him was awesomely clever and in character. Bitey impersonating the purple bigfoot and the Auld sage was hilarious, as was the bigfoot pissing on his own hands and Bitey being an asshole pushing the purple thing out of the tree. Bitey screaming at the spiders was also hilarious, I expected him to scream, but that was certainly a tad more "AHHH" then I thought it would have (did you do that scream by the way?)

The whole thing had an amazingly professional feel to it, which is thanks to the music I think. I literally had forgotten I was watching a flash cartoon at one part, how perfect the music went with it was amazing. This is definitely the most cinematic Brackenwood experience yet. You created beautiful scenes, not as in backgrounds (even though you obviously still did) but as in the angles and length of them were perfect.

As with every piece of art, there are always criticisms.

I'm not sure if this is just me, but I really dislike the purple colour used to outline Bitey's fur. Before it was just the purple outline for his skin, and a black outline for his fur. I preferred it this way as I simply thought it looked better.

My main problem with this, was the ending. Never before has Brackenwood had a problem of the ending being too sudden and unexpected, and that really did disappoint. I thought the whole idea for Waterlollies hilarious, but it yet again ended with Bitey receiving his eventual predictable comeuppance, again at the hands of a bigfoot (which seems to affect all the brackenwood movies with Bitey besides the Yuyu). This one seemed way too sudden, maybe it was the fact that it seemed so profesional, but I really did not expect it to end when it did and was just getting into it. I thought the conclusion would be more interesting then "Bitey belches out waterlollies".

Final thoughts: If this really is your last brackenwood flash before moving onto toonboom, then what a way to go. Each time you've released a cartoon it had raised the bar of your last cartoon, but never like this. You deserve a gold star, sir. what if I copied and pasted this from my review on the forum :P
