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:

- - don't forget to come back here and review/rate :)

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!

Amazing..but it needs a creativity in...

Good Points: Amazing Graphics (one of the best ive seen), it had a huge diversity of well drawn and animated characters 2/2
The Music accompanied the movie. 2/2
It gave me the sense of serenity and nature, and was briefly funny 2/2

Mistakes: It lacked a good story line, i had difficulty identifying the conflict, maybe it should be more interesting and clearer. Maybe create a fight scene or a thrilling scene with a beast. 1/2
It was slightly boring, the energy level of this movie wasn't really high, it was high and the beggining and the end, but when there was no action, the scene really died down. Try focusing on creating one major action scene, perhaps a fight scene or an area to create a major conflict.1/2

Overall it was great work, definitely worth my time. 8/10, 4/5

Good

I'm really like how you put so much focus to detail in the enviroment and characters, but in general I thought the storytelling could have used some more work. Overall, it was a pretty good movie, so keep up the good work.

this has the most plot out of all the bitey movies

I'm a little surprised on how long this movie this is. your other movies are so much shorter.

theres a whole lot more going than i would expected so you do show some signs of vast improvement from your previous work in aspects such as plot, drawings and animation.

you have also made an improvements on making sure your movie plays how it's supposed to on as many computers as possible.

it ran smoothly on my computer for the most part and i'm getting low on ram while there was choppiness in some parts. you can't be blamed for that since it was my machines fault.

and as i recall this is your longest movie yet and also most graphic intensive. you should maybe offer a tutorial on optimization just because this movie is actually more than worth the 12 megs of movie.

I've long outgrown being a graphic whore and i've judge your latest movie all on criteria what i consider makes up a good flash.

you've become a better entertainer and this what always comes first. I find your past works focused on graphics and design more.

and even if you nearly killed yourself making this movie i somehow get the sense that you were having fun as your making it.

Thats something you rarely see in any overly ambitious projects at all since you basically force yourself to work too hard for a finished project that few people will appreciate beyond it's nice looking drawings.

none of this felt forced to me at all and i will admit that I'm jealous of your skills like so many of the artists.

keep up the good work but your movie is still somewhat lacking in storyline but at least your making improvements.
