Boulder Dash! (In Color!)

First off, thanks for coming to watch. I submitted this earlier, but it didn't have color, music, a preloader, and it looped. I took a thousand steps in updating and making it over, and I hope you guys enjoy this one more. I hope it gets past judgement, I guess, but the reason I posted this was to get more suggestions from you guys on how to make improvements the next time I decide to make a flash. This is the first serious flash project I've done, so "don't hate, appreciate". Haha.

***Hey! It passed judgement! That's so cool! Thanks, everyone, for all the tips and constructive criticism.

Stick comedy.

Stick figures are always the most comical =]

mrpokie responds:

I agree!
Well, sprites can be pretty funny too. Hehe.
Thanks for the comment! :D

Kyle Is i and i am he

well i almost enjoyed it but then the end was just stupid the rest was good keep trying:)

mrpokie responds:

I didn't think it would be as effective if the stick man actually died... I enjoyed the way that he just got up after all that... it was the "punch line", if you will. But, of course, you can't please everyone. Heh. Thanks for bothering to comment though, man.

***Unless you are referring to the finish screen. Haha. I wasn't sure. The ending screen is pretty stupid, I will admit, but I didn't feel right leaving it in regular colors. :)

Firsties are always besties

Yay, firsties are always good no matter what =D
I'm not an expert on actually MAKING flash, but I have watched a good amount of the stuff in my short life. Your next step might be animating seperate limbs, maybe munching the scenes closer together to make it seem more animated, maybe aim for some more realistic enviorment. Who knows? You might make a game or something soon =D
8/10 for a good firstie!

mrpokie responds:

I'm actually going to start looking up actionscript more and start seeing how to make games. I don't think I'll have one any time soon, but that's a good idea. I appreciate your comment!

getting there...

You got a decent start. Now that you have a little experience under your belt you can go for something a bit more complex. Try slowing things down a little. Like when the rock goes through the loop...have it slow down as it reaches the top cause gravity would slowit a bit then speed up again as it comes down.

mrpokie responds:

Thanks! That's a good idea. I tried to make it physically correct, but sometimes one misses a few key things like that. I'll remember that next time.


Short and sweet. humorous. liked the music. good first flash man!

mrpokie responds:

Hey, thanks a lot! Means a lot to me.
