Sonic makes a pixel-perfect dive with Tails. B)
There's only so much you can do to survive.

Always wanted to make a fully pixelated flash short from scratch. Screw sprites.
Pixelart is created in Graphicsgale and Flash is .....made in flash duh.
Big thanks to my buddy Foretrekker. Check out his art : foretrekker.tumblr
I had this idea for a flash in head since 2008. I'm finally able to execute it. PS: Dudul is a bro

the joke felt a little weird...

I like the animation, art, and music, but I felt the premise wasn't executed as well as it could have been. I thought it would have been better if after the drowning timer music started, Sonic tried longer (unsuccessfully) to grab an air bubble, and then sucked the air out of Tails' lungs out of desperation, rather than a premeditated sneaky scheme thing. And then I think it would also have been funnier if it showed Sonic being relieved and walking off nonchalantly. as Tails' body floated upwards.

I planned on having sonic walk away, but that would have made things too obvious. I do find the first idea of yours a very good one!

I'm not a big fan of the sonic series. Good job on the graphics and everything, but it got a little weird at the end.

Don't worry, that's understandable :) Thanks for watching!

Different.

Here's what I liked:
-The sort-of-pixelated art style was really cool. Very awesome and unique.
-The audio was spot on. I suppose it was loud but it sounded great and was truly faithful to the source material.
-The animation was pretty smooth.
-The backgrounds looked great. Good to see you go that extra mile.

Here's what I didn't:
-The pun could have been executed in funnier ways. Seems like the core of the joke was stealing the air and sacrificing Tails. I think that could have been funnier if it was done with some sort of block or last second steal or some other form of comedic violence. Having him take the air so that Sonic could spend 30 seconds making goo goo eyes at him before they make out was unnecessary. Yeah, we get it, Sonic's about to lip lock with Tails, move on.
-Sonic should have died before Tails even grabbed the bubble. He seemed to survive well past what the musical cue said should be his death time. Even then he wasn't gagging or struggling for air, he was calmly spending an hour making eyebrows at Tails.
-Why didn't Sonic go for a different bubble, or move more than 2 inches after going underwater? It's like he desperately wanted an excuse to kiss/kill Tails.
-Considering the sheer number of ways this could have been done you picked the only one that forces (through several logic errors by both Sonic and Tails) the two of them to press their faces together. I suspect you're really into SonicxTails yaoi or something, but what happened here (forced sexual contact leading to the death of a young boy) doesn't come off as funny, just... Disturbing...
