Rated 3 / 5 stars

I liked the initiative to do a second version of the classic flash app and the addition of animations, music, coloring and new elements (such as the size of a Minecraft World), but I hoped to see much more interesting information about stuff on this one and instead I just got relative sizes of everything. I was expecting that at least you would explain that anything smaller than a Plank just "doesn't make physical sense" or that the universe is constantly expanding, for exemple.
If there's going to be a third version, a mouse-over information box wouldn't be bad.

When you make a sequel to something, you're supposed to really make it pop. I don't see too much added in this edition. Sure, you put in some extra objects and pretty colors, but in the end it's still the same thing. Worse yet, it scrolls much slower, making it extremely tedious to scroll from the far end of the scale to the other. There's also some lag from all of the filters you used in the objects.

I should note that the thing that bothered me the most about this was the horrible commentary you put in. It was so informal and casual, filled with fake chumminess that it made me want to puke.

Seems like you saw that the first one was popular and wanted to republish it with an advertisement slapped on the front.

That being said, the scale itself is still as interesting as it ever was, but you're really just submitting the same thing and people are looking at it in amazement all over again.
