Press Start: Bonus Levels
"Symphony of the Trite"

Vlad's phone conversation is rudely interrupted by an irksome vampire hunter. Featuring David Humphrey, the original voice of Shadow the Hedgehog!

"Press Start: Bonus Levels" is a monthly animated series based on the upcoming videogame comedy movie "Press Start".

Created and animated by "Press Start" writer Kevin Folliard and produced by "Press Start" director/producer Ed Glaser, "Bonus Levels" goes where the movie can't, introducing audiences to the world of the film even before the movie is completed.

Each episode is only a few minutes long and features the voice talents of the "Press Start" cast, as well as others, plus music by professional videogame composer Jake "virt" Kaufman.

I give you all the credit in the world for not using sprites when you had every reason to do so. Most people drag sprites into unrelated stories, whereas you had a scene right out of a classic game and opted to draw them yourself. Well done. And all your logical arguments against Castlevania were well founded and nicely thought out.

I thought the castle appeared once every 100 years or something? Eh, sometimes, like in Symphony and Curse of Darkness, people actually go and track down the castle rather than the castle bothering them. Still, so many of the little details about the weapons and history, as well as traditional video game nonsense like destroying furniture to find food and money, all very hilarious and in dire need of mocking. I recommend a bit about eating food randomly found on the ground, that one always makes me laugh.

Not bad.

It was fairly well written and entertaining, but the animation was awful. Use less tweening next time.

This series deserves it's own collection!

Under video game parodies. Nuff' said.
