An animation done for a Uni assignment. This was pretty rushed, hence the massive amount of tweens, and the rushed ending. But hopefully you guys'll still enjoy it.

Synopsis: Shigeru Miyamoto accidentally finds himself in the world of Mario, he then goes on an epic (but rather short) journey to find his way home.

Nintendo characters belongs to Nintendo

Music: Gangster Tripping, by Fatboy Slim

Mild Audio for the Music

That was simply fantastic! I loved it. It honestly brought a smile to my face. Your animation is very good, I must say, so I wish I'd been able to see just a bit more of it in this animation.

I understand it was rushed, and it was all the more amazing for that, but to offer my criticism, I felt that the sprite-zelda section (and possibly the sprite-DK as well) needed to be shortened a bit. That particular sectioned dragged too much for my tastes, was too same-y and lacked exciting action, and as such should have definitely been tightened up. Also, the blue bad guys that were static parts of the (strategy guide?) dungeon map were disorienting. I would definitely suggest that those have been removed from the final product, since it looks weird having Link fight the moblins and yet not have to deal with those (at least, someone might feel that way if they have played ALttP before, know what they are, how they attack/move, etc., like I have.)

The one song was maybe a little uninteresting, but only because the animation felt a little slow at times for the pace of the song. In the beginning, though, the pacing of the action/cuts matched the tempo very well, and I enjoyed the song itself, so overall I'd say the audio was well-done and well-used.

excellent work! 10/10 ^_^
-obviously a Link fan.

Definitely agree, I felt that bit dragged on a bit too. And I'm not sure why I forgot to remove those blue bits, I remember planning to. Thanks for the awesome review!

No part of this was anything less than superb

I found everything in this to extremely enjoyable, and forgive the expression, cute. The only thing that I had a problem with was the lack of Metroid, I thought that would have been awesome to see, or a Star Fox, but then I think that would be damn nigh impossible to do effectively.

Anyway, that was epic. A must see for an Ninten do fan (which I am not, but still found surprisingly enjoyable)

Exceptional and Enjoyable

A remarkable animation. The song was unexpected, but fit nicely. Miyamoto would be proud of this tribute.

A couple comments: Mario has brown hair and a black mustache in the most recent games. I read it was rushed; I suggest when you have the time to make an extended version featuring a few more characters such as Starfox, Pikmin, and some F-Zero members. He could even meet some character from games he didn't create but inspired, such as Pokémon and Kid Icarus. In Japan, one of the default names for the main character in the first Pokémon was even Shigeru! Even so, it's one of the best shorts I've seen in quite a while!

As a final note, I need a stone 'Starman' now, and good luck in your chosen field!

Awkward-Squid responds:

Thanks, I'll definitely keep those suggestions in mind. And having that stone star would be pretty sweet.
