Rated 4 / 5 stars

If Pico was animated by Osamu Tezuka

That's what this show says to me...

the cutsy anime'ish styles that were once beloved during the 60's style of japanese animation.

Though...voice acting would've been promising too for more enjoyment.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Not even gonna finish it.

It looks amazing and is cool, but please just get some one to voice the thing. I don't want to read while I watch animations, I just don't. Sorry to be such a prick. Your skills are awesome, your flashes are too, now all you need is sound and less clicking to get through the darn things ;P

Hehe. Nah, that's a valid complaint and something I'll consider. Thanks for the review!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Great effects animation

Your character animation not so much. Unfortunately because your effects looked so smooth and fluid it really made Pico's animation look all the more static. Still overall it was good, I didn't particularly like the text box thing goin on as it kinda broke the momentum. The story was fine and nice and simple stylistically and I appreciated the easter egg :)

Good luck with the competition and I hope to see more stuff from you

It was intentionally static during the conversation bits, similar to how story is handled in JRPGs. I can understand that not everyone would be into that method of storytelling though. Glad you got a kick out of the egg and thanks for the review!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

kick ass

Too bad you couldn't get any voice actors, however that didn't deter me from watching the whole thing, and finding that strategically well hidden easter egg. 10/10 5/5!!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Did anyone else notice this....

But it like Pico was part of the Mother/Earthbound universe! The music at certain parts and art style was so much like it! Anyways, awesome flash, good animations, and smooth text delivery, its was nice even if you couldn't get voice actor for it. Great flash bye the end of the day!
