Movement kinda reminds me of Mr. Game and Watch. Not very fluid but the idea was there. Good music, Entertaining to watch.

It looks like crap...

but this was more of an animation test correct?

Animation wise, it wasn't too bad. Three things:

1. The running was sloppy at best. There wasn't much running to be seen but you can do better than that.

2. I know that this is a simple stick animation but could you have at least drawn the thing the stick man 'swings' on better? If it were a branch then it stands to reason it wouldn't really swing all that much. If it was a rope then it should have swung a great deal. My point is, let's not be like early DK country where some ropes are stiff and some are limber and be more 'life-like' in that aspect of animation.

3. When your stick guy falls it isn't clear whether it tripped or just didn't land on its feet. Try to make this distinguishable.

Apart from those three issues the rest was good. The wall sliding could use some work too but it wasn't that bad. I especially liked when the stick dude rubbed his face after sliding down the hill. Most animators would skip detail like that. It's those little things that tend to separate the great from the untalented.

Kudos on the playback bar! It really helped me to drag the button and look at you animation piece by piece.

Not bad

But it really leaves wanting more. So... more?
