It's a huge honour to have won the first NG Tank Award.
To be honest, Brackenwood wouldn't be what it is today without the generosity of Newgrounds and the supportive community here.
Thanks everyone for the years of support :D


Waterlollies: Bitey's short-sighted arrogance lands him in a world of hurt.

If you have a slow computer, you will probably experience severe frame-dropping throughout some actionscripted particle scenes. Flash Player 9 required, fast computer and Safari browser (the best for viewing Flash movies) strongly recommended

- - update:
- - if you're having trouble viewing it at 25fps, Waterlollies is now on YouTube. Check my channel:
- - youtube.com/chluaid
- - don't forget to come back here and review/rate :)

edit: thanks for the Portal Awards and front page, and thanks everyone for the amazing score and all the great reviews!

For hardcore Brackenwood fans this will be nothing too new, apart from one or two new creatures. Anyone new to Brackenwood will find this is the most complete Brackenwood story so far. Still I have lots of work to do on my story skills so future Brackenwood movies will have greater depth.

Thanks to Newgrounds, this movie was scored professionally by Nathan McCree. He's the guy that did the music on the Tomb Raider games (!) so I'm grateful that he agreed to work on this with me. Thanks to him and Tom Fulp, this movie sounds amazing.

Thanks also to Michael Welsh for ironing out some actionscript bugs for me at the last minute!



That was the most impressive flash artwork I've ever seen on Newgrounds.
Extremely fluid movement and sequence, detailed scenes and very excellent blur/glow use. All my 5 belong to this.
12/10 if it were possible.

I will forever love bitey


This was a pretty awsome animation!
-The graphics were pretty amazing
-good quality
-good sound quality
good storyline


I think there is a moral in all this, that moral is that you dont need to be an asshole with everyone just because you can. Bitey really learned a lesson from all this, and his stomach almost got blown up in the process

Thoroughly Epic

Quite obviously the most amazing piece of Flash ever to come into existance on this planet.
What I'm worried about is whether Waterlollies will take its rightful and well-deserved place as the First Scoring Flash of all time on Newgrounds; or if, due to the fact that the Newgrounds ranking system is primarily (but not solely) based on the 0/5 icon votes, it will fall below those Flashes of obvious lesser animated awesomeness.
Seriously, if the overall views were taken into account more effectively, I wouldn't be surprised if the whole Brackenwood series took the first five slots.
