The Tarboy SOUNDTRACK is now available for download here:


Whoa! We're totally blown away by the response Tarboy's had so far :O We can barely keep up with all the incredible reviews, notes and emails! Thank you everybody for the daily feature and front page!

It's taken us a long time to finally upload Tarboy, so thanks to all the people who've been waiting patiently. We hope you enjoy it :) Check out the Bonus features too, we put a lot of work into it!

The score was composed by Newground's own Hania Lee.

Now that we've got this one out we can focus completely on Tarboy II.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

techincally impressive

I have to give it a 7 just for the technical achievement, but it didn't hold my attention.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

A little too cliched for my taste...

The production quality is, without a doubt, superb. But the story and characters are all very cliche. The storytelling grandfather who was part of the story he's telling, the evil corporate businessmen, the underdog looking for revenge and murdering everyone who gets in his way (even the design which I have seen all too many times on Newgrounds and elsewhere before).

Just... try to write a better script next time. You can work with what you have and still make it work well. Then again, Star Wars had a pretty ridiculous plot and characters and it's revered as one of the best movies (all-inclusive of course) of all time.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Nicely done, but alot of plotholes

Why is he attacking those office guys? Are they "the rich"? In that case, are all the rich robots bad?? And "rich" would be like a mansion or a boss at the office; these guys looks like the typical square box office workers; not something you think of as prestige.

Oh, and if the granddad is the janitor guy, which you think since he has the missing eye, there's a problem, cus the eye changes in one scene, then back again.. continuity problem

Oh, and it was really nice that the granddad was the narrator, whit a nice rythm and almost song like structure, but theres a big part where we dont hear from him. Also, the first 30sec, his voice is to low, or maybe the music to high., It works everywhere else, but the start.

Take it as constructive criticism.. I really liked it, and I hope the 2nd will be even better.

Pretty good

Hey man u r definetly a artist ok keep making vids. As for this video it was kind of average. Ya know the average action. But i will definetly want to see a second one. I am so excited to see what tarboy will do to reunite with his body and destroy those fat cats. Good luck.

I liked the music and the original idea. And the animation was good.
But the story could have been better. I think there are better ones.
