Chapter 1 of Robust & Dog



Rated 3 / 5 stars

((( NEAT STYLE )))

This was sorta neat with the whole "B&W" theme, and the characters were neat, i do think it needs some work on more detail like in the backrounds and more effects, also abit of color would spice up things...

Add more animation to the characters, I noticed the text was abit sloppy, why not give it some detail aswell as some Text bubbles, a decent font with some deep colors and good text bubles should improve on this... Well while its black and white, you may want to think about adding some color even just a drop here or there, like say a blood drop so that the B&W reflects more it would be a nice touch of little color vs the B&W...

A neat little flash but could use some improving...

Glad you enjoyed the flash and thanks for the review!
Having black and white, then adding some bits of colour like for blood is too corny, I'm not going to start ripping off Sin City wholesale. Also, text bubbles would totally spoil the style of the flash, I was aiming for something subtle and not brash, even if readability and such would suffer.
You actually wanted more text? Most people get a headache when I ask them to read instead of me shouting the story at them through voices.
I'm not entirely sure what you thought was wrong with the font, too large/small or just not visible enough?
I will agree with you that there wasn't much detail in the backgrounds. However, I thought really detailed backgrounds would just be distracting and could mean the characters could have been lost with it being in black and white.
The criticisms you mention are the exact limitations I imposed on myself to actually make the flash unique and not like every other flash on NG, if I compromised them the flash would lose any individuality it might have.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Not too good

The graphics of the moive looked pretty look. However, the major reason why I did not give it a high score was because the background was so dark that I could hardly see things clearly. Because of that, the moive's score took a dive in the water. From the graphics, the moive deserved a much better score than what it haas now. I hope that you can notice the problem and get it fixed soon. Good luck with your future submissions!

Extar responds:

The movie was meant to be extrememly dark, you can't see this at all in daylight no matter how much you turn the brightness on the monitor up. I'm not clear what it was you couldn't see, apart from the characters, which you seem to have been able to see, the only other background is the cliff face. I hope that cleared something up, you could always just try watching the flash with the lights off, that's how it was made.

You're a stupid ass.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


this was ocward?, it was stupid because it has no voices and the graphics kinda sucked.

Extar responds:

Ocward? That isn't even a word. Maybe you meant 'awkward', which means you can't spell and are probably stupid. Oh, it had no voices and the graphics were simple? You didn't think that was maybe deliberate? Yep, you are stupid.

A universal "meh"

Okay the sound was good but the animation was so-so, I'm trying to understand what it was about... two dogs or something. Surrounding by ninjas who swear and stuff. Then it ends. Still, it was ok.

Extar responds:

There isn't anything to get, everyone stop looking for things to 'get'! It's a flash about two characters, one called Robust and one called Dog getting attacked by ninjas. It's really that simple.
