MAJOR UPDATE v1.2
Thanks to the huge number of helpful reviews here on Newgrounds, I have been able to address a number of issues with the Original release of Super Duck Hunt.
Updated Super Duck Hunt to an MP4 + Widescreen format
Addressed pacing issues, removing 2 minutes of unnecessary padding
Improved music sync
I present to you the definitive version of Super Duck Hunt!
SPRITES AVAILABLE HERE:
Created by Shane Toner / "features"
Animator, Illustrator from Tyrone, N.Ireland
19: 34 minutes in duration (credits included)
Created in Adobe Flash and MS paint
This has been a long time coming, 8 to 9 years to be semi exact.
Thousands of custom sprites, lovinglg restricted to an 8bit 4 colour Palette.
With a symphony of classic 8bit music throughout!
Super Duck Hunt drops the famous characters of Duck Hunt into a war torn Nintendo world, where only one unlikely, four legged hero can save the day.
I hope you enjoy!
It's not even a good story. That's so disapointing... I expected something better. It was almost like watching Final Fantasy "The Spirit Within". Did at least this thing have a script? I know that dog deserved some punishment for laughing at us. That was a weird war. The only part I really liked was the one where the first time we saw Peach... She was actually a Toad in disguise.
Anyway, you did a good work with those sprites. Nice animation. That's why I'm giving you 5. In overall, I would give you 1, but working that dog and being not paid for that (I bet) is remarkable.
The story was naturally an after thought to tie together a series of ideas for animation (I started this when I was 17, its naturally disjointed); however the version currently running on anything other than mobile devices is old and not really representive of the final cartoon.
Newground's current server problems are stuck and unable to display the more refined (2 minutes shorter, better music, widescreen and polish) mp4 version. Im not sure what version you seen but I personnally feel the new movie is much more tolerable.
If you're curious either load this page on your mobile/tablet or watch it on youtube, cheers :)
Funny as @#$%!
This was totally brilliant! Simply amazing! I think there should be more movies like this. It was definately worth the watch!
My only gripe is that you used additional voices, mainly for Toad that did not fit with the NES 8-bit sound track. But other than that, I really loved this! Nice work!
That was spectacular!
It's been a while since I saw a sprite movie that doesn't recycle the same shit we've seen so many times. How the hell did this slip under the radar is a total mystery to me. Too bad that this doesn't have a higher score.
Graphics: You did an excellent job on ripping, customizing, importing, and animating the sprites. It's even more amazing that you did all of your editing in MS Paint, which gets a very bad rap. All of that effort was painstaking, but it was all worth it in my book. (Especially considering that you had to make it all under system specs.) Kudos for NOT saving your backgrounds as .jpegs, which doesn't blend well with pixel art or vector art.
Music and sound: I will say that you have the ear for music as all of those NES songs fit perfectly. Also worth mentioning is that you managed to use some obscure games for music (FF3, Lagrange Point, Akumajou Densetsu, and the NES Earthbound). As for the sound effects, I like how you took some liberties without going overkill. That's highly commendable.
Content: You sir have the eye of a director; something that only a few on NG truly posess. Every scene was well-staged, cohesive, composed, and the camera movements were also great. In addition, your pacing was perfect considering that this was a war-themed cartoon. Did I mention that I thought that this was funny at parts? However, the only flaw is that there were spelling mistakes.
What I liked about this:
-Great music selection
-Excellent sprite work
What I didn't like:
Overall: I think a ten would be most appropriate for this. (5/5)
Thank you so much for the Review, I had no idea Tom had finally featured Duck Hunt in the Parody collection.
Fairly chuffed to be getting fond reviews once again, makes it all feel a little more worth while. Particularly surprising to me since this is the old version that featured some major pacing issues.
The Youtube and eventual MP4 Newgrounds (Having client issues with my slow connection) version are far superior to what you've seen but still, thanks alot, made my day. :)
Random but very well made.
What to expect when you're expecting (an acceptance letter)
Some magic frog BEATS!
