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 5 / 5 stars


This puts 3/4's of all newgrounds flashs to shame. Very well put together can't wait to see 2. To bad newgrounds doesnt have more people like you submiting flashs, nothing but sad flashs these days. BTW is granpa's eye supposed to switch around through out the flash >.< n/m still an awesome flash.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was... AMAZING

Holy Crap I never expected something like that from something called tarboy.... The music totally made it epic and its simplicity during the tarboy cutscenes was one of the things that made it absolutely epic. My favorite part was at the end when things got all epic with the grandpa and the jar of tar. 10 out of 10 easy!

Rated 5 / 5 stars


i avoided this submission because it really didnt seem appealing to me,until i looked at it....
The voice acting: was amazing the way the characters would speak reflected their persona
The Art: was fantastic and really gave the story personality but somehow when i watched this all i could think of was robots the disney movie that is.
The story: was original to a extent i think iv seen the cliche of the revenge for slaves or a repressed race,species blah blah blah... but none the less this was original.
The visuals:ok first off the fight in the dark,that was the highlight of this flash.
but the way things were for instance the whole armada of the men in ties watching tarboy melt made them look sinister in a corporate sort of way lol.
Sfx: go right along with the art and animation
Animation:Smooth and flowing appeals to the eyes but still makes action scenes look great because they flow~
Music:really fit the scene it was presented with i.e. the fight scene in the dark again but im pretty sure that whole entire screen was made to the music.

but anyway im all out constructive positive criticism.make more/sequel please =D
