Thanks for all your kind words :D!
Really pleased with what most of you think of it and i'm very happy with the ratings you've given!
If you could, could you please recommend this for the 'Mario' collection? That'd be brilliant! Thanks!

This was a project for college in-which we were asked to create our own version of one of Aesop's Fables. I've always been a fan of sprite-based flash animations so I thought i'd give it a go myself. I've never tried sprite animations before so this was pretty exciting for me to play with! I really enjoyed making it and I hope you enjoy(ed) watching it!

The idea behind this is that Mario is 'The Hare' and is faster than Luigi* 'The Tortoise'. Mario gets so far ahead that he rests, which is when Luigi takes the lead. I tried to make things a little more interesting, which is where the generic-sprite-animation fight scene comes into play!

* = I'm fully aware that in the games, Luigi is faster than Mario (and that he can jump higher). I was constantly reminded of this by the guys in my class.

-- NOTE:
There is a bit of a problem with the replay button at the end of the movie: it doesn't work. I published the flash movie at college, uploaded it to mediafire so I could upload to Newgrounds (it's blocked at college) and realised that i'd forgotten to do the AS for the replay button. The servers have been whiped now so I no longer have the source files to edit it.

That was awesome.

The battling was reminiscent of the Power Star series plus it was funny. The dialogue was funny too. Using a move similar to Luigi's final smash in SSBB was good and the sprites and sound effects were also used very well.

Great Job. Going to my favorites.
