I love how you say "This will show you SMBZ fanboys" when aside from the characters you pretty much used(or tried to use) the same effects of Alvin, ie sparks, sounds, and animation style. But hey, it was alright for a sprite movie.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


i see what you mean about getting lazy and feeling ashamed about this, the sprites weren't as good as the previous mario vs luigi but you should be very proud it still looked good and was fun to watch. CONGRATULATIONS on finishing this one and good luck with the new series. LOL about the smbz fanboy comment too! XD


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Nice one, man! So what happens to Luigi?! Is there gonna be a third? I hope so. Anyway, yeah, it was a pretty good flash movie.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


i thoight the warped tubes where funny


Rated 4 / 5 stars

its good

very nicely done, only part not as fond of was you puttind down the SMBZ animations a lil. they're funny ^^ and nicely done as well. you both even use some of the same music ^^


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Pretty Nice

I wonder where WeeGee'll end up... great, smooth sprite animation, but I just thought the change from different game sprites (Super Mario World and Partners In Time (?)) was bit wierd.
Oh and do you think you could tell me where you get the second song, that techno one?


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This wasnt bad at all

If you keep this up, we'll have another SMBZ on our hands!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

sibling rivalry at its finest!

i liked it a lot, unfortunatly i remember watching half of this on the prequal...

taking that wasnt very long at all.

still very good job animating the sprites 7/10! try not to repeat old scenes if you choose to make a third.

i can definitely see this budding into a series that will rival SMBZ. i hope you dont steal ALL of its fans though lol


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Indeed awesome!

Hell, someone knows Nemesis Theory! (the first soundtrack is from him)

I found the animation to be fairly good, fast paced, not clumsy at all which you might expect in flash movies about "insert character" vs. "insert other character". Yes...a few things were ripped from Alvin (blue shell Luigi/ back to old school) but who cares? It's great, hence why I am looking forward to the new series!

Keep up the (very) good work!


Rated 0 / 5 stars

Fierce-deity490 is right!

Unfortunately, that makes it too overdone. Try something more than just random fighting.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Bland, dry, & repetitive

I know it's Mario and Luigi, but you need to pick up the pace a little bit. Faster fighting helps the viewer pay attention. I'm not talking about speeding up the fps, either. Another thing I noticed was that your movie lacked a sense of gravity throughout the fight. You said you didn't want to be compared to the SMBZ series, and that's pretty fair considering this is YOUR movie. But for the love of God, please make your own sprites or something. Lastly, you need to desperately think about the music you used. Back To Mad? Seriously????


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


i expected a bit more special effects.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is awesome!

Why does everyone say that anything that has Mario or Sonic in it is an SMBZ rip-off? Newsflash idiots; It's not! SMBZ Isn't a style, it's DBZ that is, and you are all trying to make it seem like everyone is copying Alvin-Earthworms "Style" SMBZ Fanboys/girls really need to take a reality cheek pill and actually look at a movies plot, action, etc. besides looking at characters and fighting and saying "OMG ets an SMBZ ripoff!!!11!!!11!!!!1" Okay now about the movie. The fighting was excellent and I loved how you changed from MLSS Style to SMW style, it really put a twist on everything. The only thing that brought you down is it didn't seem to long, maybe 2 1/2 minutes tops? Anyways, good luck on future projects. And SMBZ Fan noobs, learn how to critcize besides saying that it's a rip off.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

really good 5/5 10/10

if you could put a story to this and make it a series, there will definitley be a new smbz on NG.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


I don't know why all these noobs keep saying its going to be the new SMBZ, when it still has things to be worked on. So lets get on with my review.
Graphics 2/5 This is because it the backgrounds were at times pretty bad and slow
Sound 4/5 I didn't see any errors, but it was slightly out of sync
Story 0/5 Because it has no story
Loader 4/5 Because it looked good
overall 10/20, nice job but it was too short.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

I'm gonna be blunt with ya

I'm going to agree with you. It was not good at all. It was slow, boring and just plain. It felt like you just threw it together and said here watch this. My suggestions are:
Better music: Back to mad was used in SMBZ. Use another song
Better or new sprites: the ones in there were ok but they just looked goofy
More action: I'm not saying DBZ style fighting. Try to make your own up or something. Use you imagination.

An A for effort be a C- for the work.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


....was I supposed to say more??


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not bad

Wasn't bad, could use a little more action, also the big mario looked a little off to me, just my opinion. I think it was his nose. It might have felt like there was more action if the little fights in between mario and luigi weren't broken up as much. Either way, not bad. 7/10 3/5


Rated 4 / 5 stars

short yet sweet

Could use a joke considering how luigi is stuck in the pipe


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty cool

i like the part at the end when luigi gets stuck in the pipe. Pretty stink graphics, but apart from that the movie is wicked


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

pretty cool. question.

you know at the begining the effect when luigi uses that torpedo attack?
what game it that from. the effect when he his mario.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good but one problem

The sound choices. When either of them said something, they would occasionly be sound clips from the other brother. Like Mario saying "Let's a go" in Luigi's voice. It doesn't fit. The animation was good, the concept is predictable, the music was alright. This is a generic sprite fight, but not as bad. I hope you understand.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty decent, actually.

Well, lots of it you already know, but it would be cool to have a prelude telling what happened last episode. Other than that, I think it was well done.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


How come mario always wins? good movie.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


good movie but to short


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

it was okay...

it was quite cool but i saw way too much alvin earthwormish animations, sprites and backbrounds!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


it was good, but that red switching place thing kinda destroyed it. If you could get something a bit cooler for that, and try to not do the same mario sprites as alvin earthworm, stick with super mario world, it makes it look more original.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty Good!

I like, it but it's way to Alvin Earthwormesque... but still pretty good!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Yes it was good but u could do more about the sound I know it's hard to make an mario flash I tryed it also ... Work more on sounds =) 7 from me =P


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice Work ;)

I really like this x]
but for the next time, plz make the sounds some different.
the sound if mario kicks luigi as example.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

It's ok, but...

I know you said don't compare it to SMBZ, but quite frankly, it's hard not to. It's not at quite that level yet, but it is VERY similar, what with the effects and all.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


Talk about an unoriginal concept. But hey, I figured if it got Daily 5th, it must've done something right!...

It did not.

While the sprite work was OK, it felt very slow-paced and boring. The Mario World idea was kinda good, but was executed poorly. Besides, if all that was going to happen there was Mario getting a Mega Mushroom and Luigi getting a shell, don't you think it should've been... oh I don't know, in NSMB? As far as I know, there aren't (and if there are, not many) sprite fights with those sprites, and it would've been interesting to see.

I'm trying my best not to compare you to SMBZ, but come on, you used a lot of the same effects and styles and... oh my God, is that the signature SMBZ fight music? Jeez, man, there are plenty of other songs (here on NG even!) that you could've used! If you're gonna rip something off, try to make it a bit more seemless. ;)

All in all, I wouldn't say that this is a terrible flash, but it's far from great... and by looking at your author's comments, I see that you even agree. I'm no sprite basher, I love sprites, but I believe a little more effort could've been put into this. :)



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great work but unoriginal piece of work

Hate to say this but, it isn't really original!
Yes we shouldn't be comparing it with SMBZ, but you did take concept from it! The fighting style, effects and humors:/

Well if you are going to be making a full flash movie Cast of Shadow. Don't give up!
You need to make the storyline really good and griping if you want a Win!

The music in the fight round 2 didn't really fit the battle, it surely fits SMBZ :) (no offense).

Mario seemed to be stronger than Luigi, Luigi seems to fight too stupid. Please make them equal. But I did like the part Luigi was throwing punches at Mario before entering the first tunnel.

Fight style you borrowed from SMBZ, Mario performing the "blow to the gut", "multiple punches" etc. But at least you didn't make it seem like SMBZ/DBZ (fighting in the air). But if you want this to be that original, don't make them fight like SMBZ: fighting really fast:/

The humour you used, Luigi upper cutting Mario, and the music breaks...that doesn't even fit the situation.

But anyway...I'll be looking forward to the full episode. Surprised you managed to create a flash that the quality looks so much lie SMBZ:O
Just come up with more innovative fight choreography and original battle. Show off different background rather than the ones in SMBZ.

Music used in this battle was good, I like the intro battle music:) But don't use music from SMBZ.

Reduce the humor jokes, unless they would really make us laugh!


Rated 3 / 5 stars


*This part of the review was writen befor I started watching*
I bet $5 that this going to be CLINGCLING DBZ FIGHTING CHAAAAaaaa....

*this part of the review was writen after I watched the movie*
I knew it. You owe me $5. Though you could have made $5 if you didnt follow the faggy MArioBaalZee fad. Animation was good. The plot was pretty bad. Keep making movies.


Rated 2 / 5 stars


Ok that really did remind me of DBZ because there were parts where the punches were insanly fast and the running was insanly fast and you said there was no flying in the air...yet there WAS much flying. Also, in the very beginning, for some reason, mario teleported right behind luigi, and it was very...MBZ-ish. more DBZ/MBZ crap on teh newgrounds...

My cousin says: U guys are dorks, and that video just made my eyes bleed.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

uh ok

it was pretty cool and i know your going too want too kill me for this but it was like dbz because of the high powered fighting and i did see some ideas that looked like you got it from alvin earthworm luigi in the blue turtle shell still i dont mind this was pretty awesome


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was a pretty okay fight.

The thing is, it was too short for my taste. And that going to SMW part seems pretty pointless since they practically did nothing there.

The reason many consider this a SMBZ/DBZ ripoff is because it was fast pase fighting. If it is fast, they'll compare it to anything Z even if there was no energy beams or flying.

Want people to stop doing that? I recommend viewing and studying the MK Vs SF series by Proxicide. It was fast pase but not too fast. No blur or dashing effects, just use of slowed time. If you're next one of this series was like that, then it'll get more 10s then people complaining about ripping off "something something Z".

I may not know flash but I know plenty about fighting.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

good effort

dispite your claim of being lazy (and the ending is deus ex machina) its good enough. now i only problem is flow, you countinously break it whenever they hit with a hit thats sents them flying, if your gonna be fast paced with such things make sure you can at least not stop to badly for them to get some useless upgrade, make sure that in future you maintain the flow of combat and ensure you never get one sided in fighting as this gives a very boring fight. all in all worth a 9 but could get a ten if combat flow was improved. and btw people only whine about the other series (like smbz) because they want a new one out every day, just ignore them.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Pretty nice job dude, go Luigi!


Rated 2 / 5 stars


Everyone on this side of the planet, that is not gay knows that Luigi would beat Mario's fat red ass, after he steals peach from him and has some fun with her! But the parts where luigi was winning were o.k.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


This is quite a tricky one to review...

Good points:
The animation was very smooth, the action most of the time was pulled off very well, it had some fairly original parts (giant Mario for instance)

Bad points:
The action sequence was very broken's hard to explain. It sort of started, got into a really smooth flow then aprubtly stopped and the music suddenly changes from this fighting style music to relaxing mario music in the blink of an eye.
Also, alot of things didn't make sense. Such as why Mario suddenly 'evolved' when he was in a pipe, why Mario kept calling Luigi's name after beating him up (not a big issue), and why they were fighting in the first place.
The ending was just completely unsatisfying

Overall it was fairly entertaining and enjoyable, just a few little things and the structure of the film that let it down =]

On a completely different note: The only similarities I see with this to SMBZ is that. 1) There is fighting and 2) Mario sprites were used...
The fighting style is completely different and way more exaggetated in SMBZ! Sheesh...


Rated 4 / 5 stars

its alright

wow u actually made a continuation to your mvl vid,it good but the warp-pipe parts kinda ruined it as random pauses,the music is a large improvement now with music that goes with the fight, and about the sbmz comparison even with the new only mario serise u might not get anywhere with them what you may have to do is use ideas from different mario games or completly unique that alvin earth worm would never do or haven't done yet(it seems u already thought of that with the extra big mario good job with that).Btw i 'm really looking forward to the third part with your SMW sprities.
NOTE TO ALL!!!!: this is NOT a sbmz rip off different storyline(ok there is none)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Much better!

The battle scenes were better than the last episode, you've added some nice effects (especially for the super mushroom), and you've even made some of your own custom poses. I say, you are progressing better than I imagined! Well done!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty good!

That's a pretty good flash right there ;). I don't see why people are comparing this to SMBZ -- two completely different things. This is raw action/fighting, SMBZ has a plot. Anyway, back to this, the only thing I'm hoping for is length. It's great, but I think it's just a tad too short. Though the endings of both this one and the last one are abrupt and leave you hanging, I suppose that's the point for a series. Anyway, I like these flashes. Can't wait for number 3 :D.
If you need ideas, just PM me. I have the most random ideas occasionally. ^.^

the shit :D


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Wow, nicly done but some parts are a bit off, and lol i Love Luigi!! (^_^)


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Needs work

This was alright. One thing you need is originality...try not to use the same style as SMBZ. We've seen enough of blurred high speed backgrounds and SFX. We've also seen enough Mario and Luigi SSS sprites on SMW backgrounds. It kind of gets annoying because the colors don't go together. Also, there are countless Mario v. Luigi movies out there....without a point. This is one of them. At least have a storyline, and make it clear what happened at the end instead of making Luigi disappear. The ending seemed rushed.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


it kinda seems like smbz but its alright i give it a 6 out of 10 make it more lenghtiher


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

i could do the same

i could done that with a mac enny body could have done that

Anyway... kind of funny...

Twas awesome

It was generally a good animation, however during the animation I noticed that sometimes the sound wasn't quite synchronised. But in the general scheme of things it was an ace animation, but you are probably aware of that!

Awesome man! Definatly improving! I wish you luck on future flashes!

That was a good animation, much better than the last, can't wait for the third.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

It didn't miss a beat.

This was even better than the last one regardless of the score differential i loved this fight even more than the previous one,it had a lot more styles of fighting and different songs too i really loved it when Mario went giant and Luigi getting in a blue shell,excellent work yet again homie.

yo that was awesome
please watch my sprite fight which also features mario and luigi
(please vote and review)


Rated 4 / 5 stars

It's good.

It is pretty good. Better than majority of the other flash fights on here. I'll give i an eight because it's unrealistic on how fast Giga Mario was taken out and because animation was a bit choppy.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Cool, Cool.

The first music where Mario & Luigi fought was Show No Tears, also forgot about the author heh, great movie but what happened to Luigi in the end?


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars
