The Tarboy SOUNDTRACK is now available for download here:


Whoa! We're totally blown away by the response Tarboy's had so far :O We can barely keep up with all the incredible reviews, notes and emails! Thank you everybody for the daily feature and front page!

It's taken us a long time to finally upload Tarboy, so thanks to all the people who've been waiting patiently. We hope you enjoy it :) Check out the Bonus features too, we put a lot of work into it!

The score was composed by Newground's own Hania Lee.

Now that we've got this one out we can focus completely on Tarboy II.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

great concept

This is a fantastic concept for a heroic character. Great presentation. I like the old man that tells the story - whoever did the voice acting for him nailed it. The action scene in the dark room was a cut above. I did not like how Tarboy entered via the watercooler. That is not how watercoolers work. Sound and music was top notch... love the music during the dark room scene. Overall I thought this was very well done, but not really my cup of tea.

Nice animation, decent story, I like the ending


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

nicely but

good but,
- the maincaracter is just black, i cant relate to him or his pain/sorrow and that's a miss. His outlines/sillouette isnt that special either.. his hair is really corny.
- you lost me a bit when the shooting and explosions began, the were below the quality of the beginning.
- the end is too fast or something, you are watching and then 'is this the end?'

- the father/son is perfect, dont make it too hasty though(dads voice), the son's time to say something is good for that, nice
- the lighting in the dark with the cleaner was nice, also i laughed when he snaps the neck of the robot.

Some animation was far better then other parts in the movie
