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.

Didn't really enjoy this too much


Rated 3 / 5 stars


While the animation was done very well, the story was lacking. I had been looking forward to seeing this for a few months after seeing the trailer. The trailer made it seem SO EPIC! It indicated a very different kind of genre and plot. This was just goofy.

It was good for what it was, but the trailer led me to believe that it would be something much better and MUCH different.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Make more

Please make more. It's hard to judge you based on one movie. This movie is good. Filled with effects and music is awesome but this doesn't make me fall in love with the character called Tarboy.

Besides this movie is too kid-oriented.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Great and highly orignal but drop the cliches.

The graphics looked cool and frankly were amazing but on the other hand the storyline was rather subpar because of all the cliches tossed into this movie.

but to be fair it was much more original than the average newgrounds movie and it pains me to say this stuff because while it looked cool and the premise was highly original it still had a few bad movie cliches in there such as the grand father telling there kid the movies storyline for example.

You put all this effort into fine tuning the graphics so why not take even more extra to fine tune the story some more to iron out all the cliches because you obviously have an imagination.

In closing way above average using newgrounds standards in fact i wouldn't be surprised if it ended up in the top 50 of all times but i still think the writing could have been better.



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

I thought the story was stupid and cheesy and the old man telling the story was equally as annoying. I hope to never see this become a series. Just my opinion.
