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

got some skill (finally something nice to see :p)

story: bit on the what the heck side but it makes sense might need some more detail put in before a sequal (if there will be one)
animation: very impressive this is about the only thing that makes it look all shiny, this does deserve front page
in movie action: very little... i mean catching the rocket and doging a small ammount of bullets isnt... really that great, but it was a bed time story being told to a old man who was the janitor.

overall 7/10 and 4/5: still needs some work but it felt like a small movie or a teaser. keep up the good work

OK but overrated

It´s ok. Superb animation flow, but uninteresting characters and a rather lousy plot. The music is nice.
All in all, not bad, but overrated.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

You need to fix the link to Tarboy store! You are missing out on hundreds of potential customers every day by not having you T-Shirt store up and running.

techincally impressive

I have to give it a 7 just for the technical achievement, but it didn't hold my attention.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

A little too cliched for my taste...

The production quality is, without a doubt, superb. But the story and characters are all very cliche. The storytelling grandfather who was part of the story he's telling, the evil corporate businessmen, the underdog looking for revenge and murdering everyone who gets in his way (even the design which I have seen all too many times on Newgrounds and elsewhere before).

Just... try to write a better script next time. You can work with what you have and still make it work well. Then again, Star Wars had a pretty ridiculous plot and characters and it's revered as one of the best movies (all-inclusive of course) of all time.
