Are you really serious about this?

I ignored the score on the portal and was expecting something good from a flash based on one of my favorite novels of all time. Instead, it's this...

Have you even touched the book? I mean, in the FIRST chapter, you find out that Daisy is married to TOM BUCHANAN for crying aloud, and yet he's not even an answer choice. How could you get that wrong?

The appropriate music to use is something from or reminscent of the Roaring Twenties. Maybe something that conveys the excesses that they had during that time. Instead, I hear this trash about beer and whatnot. Ha ha, not funny.

Also, buttons didn't work. The backgrounds were not appropriate. Unless you're a hotshot calligrapher, you should use real fonts, not mouse drawn letters.

Hopefully, you haven't turned this in yet unless you have no care about your grade for the project. It's more likely, though, that you put this up just to elicit a reaction.

If it's the former, then you either have to get your facts straight when making the trivia game (personally, I'd ditch that trivia game idea. It probably won't get you higher than a C even if you complete one, as you can easily look up facts on Wikipedia or Sparks Notes or whatnot and it doesn't prove that you've understood anything about the book.) Or, you should make something else that isn't a flash project (persuade your teacher if you have to).

If it's the latter, then I hope you got your thirty seconds of entertainment out of my dead serious review.

I suppose the flash is indicative of your disdain for the novel. Well my review is indicative of my disdain for your flash. 0/5 0/10.

Not a game

Honestly, if you were going to take the time to make a trivia game for "The Great Gatsby" at least have a theme to it. The song was a very poor choice to put with this submission. Another thing is the programming for the buttons are so broken its no wonder it even compiled to FLV format. For future reference if you are going to do something like this again, that it actually works.

No good.

Programming: 0/10
It was incredibly frustrating to try and click on things. I'm not an ActionScripter, so I don't know what the issue is. Go to the Flash Forum on this site for some advice.

Art: 0/10
Hastily mouse-drawn. You can do better than that. The backgrounds made no sense, either.

Music: 0/10
I know this song from elsewhere. I kind of like it, but what does it have to do with The Great Gatsby? And why in the world would you put it on a school assignment? Also, credit the author when you submit.

Content: 0/10
You had lots of really obvious typos in the text. Reviewing your work can help a lot. The questions are really easy even for someone who has never read the book at all.

If I were your teacher, I would give you an F. I'm sorry, but there just isn't enough effort put into this.

False information

Both Nick and Gatsby were soldiers
