You can't beat the heat

Inspired one weekend while sitting around looking for a way to literally beat the heat. This flash animation is a testimonial to my own ability to trump mother nature!

But I digress. This is the first thing I've made in a while that didn't start out as a collab entry, and I am very happy with the results. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for watching, any criticisms is not only appreachiated but encouraged.

Hilarious beyond belief.

I really enjoy your sense of humor, it is very similar to mine. I think I enjoyed the bit with Apollo after the credits more than the flash itself. The mythological facts were downright hysterical. I like your style of animation too, it is very creative, plus I like how you don't have to worry about lip-sync, only their facial expressions. And hearing Billy Joel at the end makes me happy.

The only thing I took a point off for was the microphone quality could have been set to a higher resolution. It was difficult to understand what Apollo said when he was shooting lasers at the townsfolk. Overall, I was highly impressed by your skill at animation and your sense of humor. Keep up the great work my friend, I'm looking forward to seeing your future works!


Pretty good. The voice acting is good, and the animation is pretty good too. I like your idea. The ending was cool ^^


I'll be

And here I thought Apollo was one of the more laid back gods. You would think he would've been too busy either playing his lyre or hanging around Troy to cause global warming on an entirely new level the likes of which we have never seen. Apparently he isn't too busy.

"Man, [bleep] you, Apollo!"

lmao, good one. 5/5 and 10/10

My guess is he got tired and did it for the lolz. Much like myself :D Thanks for the review, it's good to hear it from someone who knows their mythology.


Your Apollo made me think of the Apollo from Star Trek: The Original Series, a prick who abused his power and forced himself upon people sexually. Good animation, entertaining, you got my 5 and 10!

thanks to the magic of youtube, I understand :D. and I lol'ed heartily in the process. thank you :D


I enjoyed it... Uhhh... The voice acting was good? Loved the ending... Sorry about the shitty review and lame title joke...

I'll make it up to you with a 10... Sound fair?

blank0000 responds:

I'd say that's a fair bargain :D . Though I do like the saying "gah gah gah good". It reminds me of metal slug.
