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

**I respond to all reviews**



Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


Hmmmm i hate the music, the animation was below sub par, There was no point to the story either, Ness goes to this clif falls off for no reason then goes to the arcade and gets stepped on. you need some more practice on your flash skills and should think of a better plot for a movie.

FattyWhale responds:

it sucked, i know...the music? it's from earthbound!

Didn't like it.

It wasn't a very good attempt at a sprite flash, at least in my opinion. Ness's animation was done well, but he wasn't really in proportion to any of the buildings at all. Having played Earthbound, I don't mind how the text boxes were done, but they could've went slightly faster. I like the Monty Python foot at the end, but it definitely felt short and plotless. I would've liked to see either more sprits, a longer flash, or something extra, like maybe that photgraph man dying somewhere.

FattyWhale responds:

This was more of an experiment to see what I could do with sprites...I was really surprised it even passed judgement.

it just isnt good

FattyWhale responds:

Well, I guess that is a valid point, but you could atleast include some commentary on what could have been done to fix it.

An alright sprite animation

The backgrounds looked nice and detailed and as Ness walked it kinda looked realistic, err as realistic as it's can ever get.

The storyline seemed to be a little lacking though, like it seemed things were happening for no reason and without adding to the story.

The one part I got a little chuckle from was where the monty python foot 'pancaked' Ness, it was pretty funny but other then that it was a little dull. I have never played any of Ness's games (other then SSB) so maybe it was a bit of a parody but I dunno.

Overall I thought it was an ok flash but with maybe a little more time planning ahead of time I think this could be much better.

FattyWhale responds:

Thanks for the review. I'll admit this could use some work, and at the end I kind of lost interest in making this movie so that is why I just ended it so abrubtly.

Pretty average

This is a pretty average sprite movie, it really had nothing too special. Firstly, let me mention that the animation itself was pretty good for a sprite movie. The only thing about the animation that bothered me is that after he fell, the black screen got closed in a weird way. Secondly, the style was also pretty nice, the atmosphere was pretty humorous. But the thing is that nothing actually happened in there, so the style didn't donate a bit. Thirdly, the script was pretty bad, because it wasn't that funny and there wasn't an actual story behind this. Nothing else happened but Ness going to the arcade, and it wasn't rvery humorous as well. Anyway, it is an average movie, nothing too special, but it wasn't bad either. Next time put some more efforts.

FattyWhale responds:

I really did put a lot of work into this movie...the truth is that I am terrible at anything to do with graphics, which is why some parts looked weird/low quality. I kind of did this on a whim, and I don't really plan on making anything like this in the future. Thanks for the reivew.
