EDIT (June 6, 2013) - I'd never noticed this before, but I mislabeled the first animation. It's supposed to say "Madness Affliction".

Over the years, I've made many things that I'm never going to finish. The six movies in this collection are only a few of them, but they are the ones I cherish most. The movies here date between 2007 and 2009, so they vary greatly in quality. Because of this, I have no idea how this will be received, but in any case, I hope you find enjoyment in this 11 MB file with years of history spanning a total of 10 minutes and 30 seconds. I also had a surprising amount of trouble putting this together because of problems with major lag and having to compensate for different framerates.

To briefly describe each unfinished creation:

This was going to be a Madness Day submission in 2007. It was never finished, but you'll probably find it very different from most Madness-based movies out there.

Two drawn video game skits of Super Mario Galaxy made in 2008. The idea was to make three skits rather than just two, which is why these are considered unfinished.

A sprite movie made in 2008 with Super Mario Bros 3 sprites, based on Rise of the MK: Part 2.

A sprite movie made in 2009 parodying Rise of the MK: Part 4, in the style of Power Star 4.5.

A horror film based on a part of the game Cave Story, made for a 2009 VGDC message board contest that was cancelled due to lack of response.

Granted, almost all of these are video game parodies. I think it's probably pretty obvious where most of my inspiration came from in these years of making Flash movies. But maybe you will enjoy them as I still do :)

[Edit] I appreciate the response. But I'm still not going to finish any of these!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Interesting compilation

I think somewhere down the line every animator has experienced this problem. I have a couple abandoned projects but that's because I just realized how awful they were. I don't need to give you suggestions for improvement because you are already one of the most entertaining animators on newgrounds. Just keep doing what your doing and stay motivated! Finished work is much better then unfinished work :P

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Hello Thar

Soo lets take a closer look:

We have 6 Movies, lets start with the ones i didnt like:

GALAXY GAGS 1___________________________
It sadly wasnt funny at all for me, Mantas don't have electric powers (not in real life and not in the game), the Mario-Is-Clumsy wasnt good. Vote from me if it was a Single Submission: 1/5 for the Effort.

GALAXY GAGS 2___________________________
Again the part where Mario crashes into the "Planet" no chuckle there. The Egg.. Well the title of the flash already gives away what happens, that would need fixing. Also 1/5 from effort, although its better than Number 1

UNTITLED SMB3 MOVIE_____________________
It was OK, the only thing that was funny was the end you wrote two days ago cause of the irony and the zynism 2/5

Oh Well it starts alright with the Wall jumping crap, that annoyed everyone in every single Mario game. Something like Camera-Bugs would have fitted in here perfectly. Then suddenly some random Flashbacks that make no sense and the end that i believe you fitted in because you lost interest?! But actually the End (with HE DIDNT EVEN KNOW WHAT HE DID and Triforce) was funny and therefore i give you 3/5

MADNESS TERMINATION_____________________
It was actually pretty decent and if you would have submitted it in this state with even one more day of work at the Madness Day 2009 it would surely have got an Award. Sadly you did not do this and junked it away. It has potential. 3/5

CAVE STORY: THE CORE_____________________
Pretty spooky, i must say that Neophyte-Ronin is right when he says that you should have finished it. its a waste that you didnt. 4/5

All in all cause this is a compilation this makes a marvelous score of 2,333 (5/10) and cause im generous ill vote 3 and i hope that you are happy with it.

I don't know why but you seem pissed off at Neophyte-Ronin's comment, although he is crucial with your flash, he wrote a very good comment. If someone writes such a long comment, this should be an honor to the submitter, even if he gives you "just" a score of 5 for flashes that you wanted to throw away anyways cause you lost interest. Also he didnt insult you in any way that i can see. (oh my, now im getting the "This is a useless review" thing too...)

Have a nice day and you really should consider completing the Core-Flash.

JonBro responds:

If someone writes such a long comment, half the time that means they're going out of their way to bash something they hate. I don't see the flattery in that. And I'll admit that it bugs me greatly when reviewers split a review into segments and base an overall score on an average of less significant scores.

Hm... and now that I read your review more...

I love how you put "P.S." before the main point of your review to disguise it. I find it pretty obvious that you read Neophyte-Ronin's review and basically piggybacked off of it in order to make a point about it.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


haha if theres one person who knows about unfinished flash projects its me, i have not managed to finish a project ive started in flash (besides miscellaneous .gifs) and my folders are full of audio-less movies and games with broken codes...

as far as unfinished movies go, these were great :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amazing D:

I didn't check the sprites though, because I don't really enjoy watching animated sprites.

Anyway, I loved the other ones! Especially the cave core story thing. That really had a great vibe to it!
It really scares you and drags you in.

I'd say the other ones (mario and madness shorts) are definitely submission worthy on their own.
They don't seem that unfinished for an outsider.

Anyway. Great job, loved the comments in it, the menu was pretty well done and finish that cave story man!
