This is my entry to Pikachu5005's sprite fight contest, being held on YouTube, and posted onto Newgrounds for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy the destruction! :O Also, all characters and such belong to SEGA. Not me. Songs in order are "Fierce Battle" from Metal Slug 5 and "Open Your Heart(Instrumental)" by Crush 40. Kthnx!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

needs some improvement.

But you have the basics down. And that's good. There are only a few things keeping this from being a 10.

First, you need to work on the backgrounds and proportions. There were parts that went out of proportion. That is the biggest problem and needs to be addressed immediately. Another problem (kinda goes with this one), is the speed. The characters moved extremely slow. It wasn't lag, and I think bumping up the FPS would eat out that problem in a second.

Second, yeah, it's a total SMBZ ripoff. You even used the same song from SMBZ 7. Being a fan is fine, but try to put a different spin on it. You'll get higher scores if you try not to be a ripoff completely. There really isn't anything to differentiate this from the other hundreds of these types of flashes. If you can manage to put a new spin on your flash, it would draw more of a crowd than just SMBZ fans and SMBZ haters.

In the words of R1665 (another flash author), "I hope I don't inspire the same kind of fan fiction Alvin Earthworm did with the SMBZ series. That man created a monster."

Heavily influenced?

Although it's really good and gave you a lot of work, I must say that it's a total Super Mario Bros Z ripoff. Example: the "flash" before attacking.
4/5, but 4/10

SoarKrieg responds:

The main things that I took from SMBZ was I used the same voice clips for Mecha Sonic that Alvin uses. And the "flash" before attacking isn't somethin' Alvin came up with. It's a highly popular effect used in many Flashes that originates from MegaMan's super moves. Thanks for the review in any case, though.
