-The Game

This Mario game was my first attempt at a complete flash game back in 2005. The reason I am releasing it 4 years later is because I wanted to see the Flash game control-trends gain momentum. The transition of arcade style gameplay to flash action script has come a long way. I didn't want to disturb that. I want to be fresh and interesting. My games are designed for use with a Wii remote, or classic ball-mouse, a laser mouse will not be able to keep up with some of the gameplay demands of some of my games.

-A Little History

My name is Frank Stringini, I am an animator. My biggest gaming influences are Don Bluth, Treasure, and Humongous Entertainment.
I have been playing with animation since the 1980's back when it was done in DOS, on a 386 PC, No Layers, and 1 undo. I have always been interested in games and fancy myself more of a game designer, but have focused my craft on the art side. I use flash to prototype my game ideas like an animatic, I playfully call it a "Protomatic."

-Action Script notes

StringAnime is a special brand of flash game design that uses animation to drive the strings of code.
I animate literally every possibility for in game action, and use a simple (goto) action-script to jump around the movie, much like Don Bluth's Arcade classic Dragon's lair. Typically, in a game, strings of code are used to display images with smooth transitions, this is quite the opposite with StringAnime. This produces a more animated feel to games while sacrificing smooth transitioning gameplay. The term StringAnime was created and named after the inventor Frank Stringini.

If you are an Action Script person with ambition, let's make something cool.
send me a private message and maybe we can work together.

Let bowser -PUNCH only- you then put your mouse over mario when bowser is right above. not gonna lie, it felt satisfying to figure that out. 4.5, was pretty fun though simplistic.
