Mario returns to the ill-fated grounds to confront the Castle that bested him 24 times. Now, he's back in 24 more attempts to bring the stubborn pile of bricks to its knees.

This flash is pretty hilarious and it's still a great classic to this day. I can so many things that are so good about this series and particular this is one of the greatest flashes on Newgrounds. Here are my thoughts on this.

First off, the animation styles: The sprites in Particular and the fact that you were able to animate the actions that all went together in this flash was amazing, especially the fact that the creators and developers were able to animate this in a 16 bit style for the whole flash. The concept of these fails are random and hilarious, and I love how some fails were connected to another. Good Job on that!

The Second thing I would like to mention about the humor. The humor fits PERFECTLY, for nearly any age. I have hard times trying to find things that make me laugh and entertain me that don't have any swears in them. Luckily this video really suits that category. Thanks! The humor and randomness really fits everything into the laughing. It's PERFECT! You did AMAZING!

Another thing I would like to mention is the Music. The quick randomness combined with the
Music really sets up the humor. It's really Fitting! The quick steps of this music was done perfectly, without switching any tunes or necessary.

Unfortunately, not everything about this flash is great for example, the volume. It's just too loud. Another thing is that some of the concepts that you created in your first calamity was brought into your second one (This one). I don't mean to be rude, but I like original, stuff I never seen before. In parodies through originality makes me laugh a lot. This video still makes me laugh, but not the hardest. Personally, I think if this just SLIGHTLY had a little bit more effort, It would be the greatest flash on Newgrounds from 2010.

Overall, What do I think of this flash? It's awesome. Nice work. It's not the ABSOLUTE BEST I ever saw, but still one of the Greatest Flashes on Newgrounds. The music, animation, the styles of humor, the level of thought, the elements of the flash, the randomness, the absolute potential that went into this (It had almost everything that people expected to have in the sequel of Mario Castle Calamity), and all of the other great things about this flash, all combined into one GREAT Flash. I love this video so much. Thank you Bigfoot3290 for this video. You made my Day. Thank You :)

Thanks for the very long-winded comment. I appreciate the effort and time you put into it. Castle Calamity was a surprise hit when I made it back in 2009. It is difficult to explain how continually shocked I was with the draw that Mario creates in a Flash, especially if displayed in the Super Mario World tile set; I did not expect to make weekly or monthly awards, let alone start a Youtube meme. However, I knew from my previous efforts in sprite (Mario) animation that I had a winning formula when it came to humor, sound fx, music, and timing. I'm glad you pointed these elements out, as sprite animation is relatively easy, but creating a "classic" is difficult no matter what medium the artist uses. Although it has been a long time since I regularly submitted content to Newgrounds, I check the website almost daily. I love knowing that people are still smiling at my Mario flashes from yesteryear. Thanks again and have a great day.
