This sprite movie is finally here! I worked hard on it and would appreciate reviews.

**I respond to all reviews**



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Ness is one of my favorite Video Game characters.

This flash was pretty Rndom because of two things, The Human Foot and The Knock out for 5 Hours. It was weird how the Human Foot came out of nowhere. I really didn't expect that to happen. The music in this flash was good from the game Earthbound. The style was pretty Creative. I got a smile when Ness put up the peace sign twice with his fingers. I like to use Ness in Super Smash Bros, thats why he is one of my favorite characters. Overall, this flash was good and I enjoyed watching it. Good Work! Responses are gladly appreciated. :)

Not Bad, Actually


This sprite movie had pretty good graphics and style, and the sound wasn't bad, either. It was pretty humerous, as well.


Well, it was far too short, and was it really necessary to put the characters name before every text.... since only one character talks, that is?


FattyWhale responds:

If I remember right, that's how it went in the game, with the characters name in front of the text, which is why I did it. Glad you liked this one

It could be a lot better.

At first it seemed like it was going to be really good. Then, it started going down hill. The random part at the end where he gets squished by a foot didn't seem funny to me. His walking went pretty smoothly. I think that it was pretty funny how he was climbing down the cliff and fell. I thought he was going to continue getting hurt on his way to the arcade. But no, that's not what happened. I think that you could have done a lot better and put an actual good story line to it.

FattyWhale responds:

Like I said, I did this on a whim so didn't really plan anything out. I'm working on some projects though, so maybe you will see something improved in the future.

An "interesting" little animation.

~The good~

The animation moved very smoothly, for a sprite flash, also, I haven't seen Ness sprites in a long time, so that added to the originality. The music was suited very well, and the sound effact were very "sprite-ish", which was cool and fit the graphcs.

~The bad~

Some parts felt really useless to the story, actually, the whole plot was pretty mediocre. One part that was pointless in this flash is when he falls off the ledge and wakes up in five hours, you shouldn't have had that in. The ending was completely stupid too, it felt like you just got lazy near the end and just decided to end it a very stupuid way.

Overall, a pretty well done sprite flash, but a little too random. I hope this review was helpful!

That's basically what happened. I would say it more just lack of ideas that laziness. I made this on a whim and had no plans before I made it.

It was alright

The flash animation was mediocre at best. Instead of focusing on the negatives, I will focus more on improvements: Your text moves too slow. Many of us can read faster. Also, when Ness blacks out, there is one pixel you forgot to shade in. I played Earthbound, and I don't think you could climb down like that, so that made me a little frusterated on how you didn't make it like the game. It was a pretty good parody if you played the Earthbound series, and it was alright. There's a lot of room for improvement, and I think you can do it.
Grade: C

FattyWhale responds:

Ness climbed down like that just because I was lazy and thought it would be boring to have him walk around the whole way.
