Bill?

well the text issue has already been mentioned but i highly doubt any german at that time would have had the name Bill.

Next Time take some good german names like Hans Müller or Max Mustermann xD

Maybe it's just me, but...

I thought the mutilated text speak was funny. Jimmy...and are, Her is your new (briefing pops up) I think it's fairly satirical of miltary intelligence to a point. And are all of these sprites from Advanced wars. Well, at least the people?

Try harder

This was a decent effort. I like the old school video game look and all. I just have a few issues.

For a start. Germans should not be called Bill or Bob or Frank... They should be Manfred, Gunter, Franz.... There is no random comedy value in that. It's hard to laugh at something that makes absolutely no sense. I am sure there are Germans named Bill, I just feel that in the interest of you starting a series, you should maybe work on accuracy from that point. I would if I was starting a series.

Secondly, you need sound so bad. That was painfully quiet to watch. The text was impossible to read or understand half the time. It looks like you did things as you were going and without any plan. If you are planning on more GI Jimmy episodes, write them out. Make a story for starters and don't count on an idea to be all you need. If you plan ahead your story, it will flow much smoother and have a sense of purpose.

Not trying to be a jerk and critical. I just want to see you do the best you are capable of because it looks like you have some talent. Try again. I am not rating this highly because of all I have said, but if you re-submit it and have fixed the issues, I can assure you that it will get a much better rating from me. Cheers.

Fail.

The dialog is unreadable and cut off. There needs to be more sound effects or speed up the animation. I love how people will pass something that doesn't even
make sense and doesn't even work.

Good effort

I'm scoring you badly because it's WAS a good effort.You say you're going to make a sceond to fix the odd sound,and the weird ass dialouge,hope you'll fix it good. .That second post better make my word true son =3

P.S. Don't name a German "Bill"


TheEvilChicken responds:

The names Bill and Ben were used for comedy value because it seems a bit random but ill look into it when I fix the rest of the scenes
