Relax in the Corals

Author Comments

Description: Exhausted from work? Need time to relax? To unwind? Here's a tiny solution to your problem! Spend some time in the corals together with the fishes! Relax and enjoy as the soothing music and therapeutic graphics alleviate your thoughts, emotions, and body condition. You may even use the full-screen option (which, I guess, is not available here in Newgrounds website) for a more captivating view of what's under the sea (though not really) and to add a screensaver-like twist to your viewing. Choose from 2 different breathtaking scenarios with 5 different coral-fish species and take some time to relax.

Author's Comments: Hello guys, this isn't as perfect as it should but please give this a try. It's my second time to publish a flash movie using basic action-scripting in Flash 8. I'm not very sure if everything will turn out just as expected. The fishes may seem awkward or rigid. The lighting effects though may somehow be mesmerizing, but they don't reflect in the corals. I used much blurring effects in this movie, and my PC monitor-screen is a bit dark so things may appear too bright or blurry.

Enjoy both the scenarios. Frankly, I find them mesmerizing. I wonder what other people think about this interactive movie. And I'm also looking forward to knowing your thoughts.

Please leave a review so I could further improve my flash movies. Thank you.

1. The "sound-on" option is not available. I'm new to flash action-scripting so I can't figure out how to add such in the movie.
2. The "full-screen" option is not available in Newgrounds website. You may find way to convert the movie into .swf or .exe format for your documents so you can as well avail the full-screen option.
3. There's a flashing box at the bottom left of the first scenario.
4. Play button in the Newgrounds Preloader keeps on flashing as the movie is loading.
5. "Exit" option is also not available in Newgrounds website.

What you can do in this flash movie: Well, the least thing you could do here is to watch the fishes swim along the screen and enjoy the breathtaking scenarios and lighting effects (or whatever they call it). These graphics, if not eyestraining, are highly therapeutic according to some scientists. So if you feel exhausted and you feel the need to relax and ease yourself, then watch this movie. If you can find ways to convert this into a .swf or .exe file in your documents, you can avail the full-screen option and enjoy a better and more relaxing view of the underwater scenarios.

Thank you very much. Your visit to my flash movie is greatly appreciated. I hope you like it.

Where did I get all the images: All images are copyright-free. Corals used multiple patterns of bitmaps. Neither do the fishes have copyright laws.

could be trouble

since the idea and image is just like the screensaver, you could be infringing on copyright laws.

its a screensaver

I used to have this as my screensaver nothing to whoot and holler about maybe if we could interact with the fish in some way it would make it more interesting.


definetely wierd. It would be better if fullscreen mode worked, but I already have a screensaver that looks like this. Whatever.


good animation, but they have a screensaver of that. Loved the graphics though!

It's... OK

Well... This is a pretty good thing to do if you're tired and just want to relax. One problem... laggy as hell! Games aren't liek this on my pc, as I have fast internet, so it must be something to do with the game. Please try and fix this bug.
