Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty good!

A very interesting Earthbound movie if I must say. As a huge fan of Earthbound I was really intrigued by this move. The animation is pretty good and you had some nice creativity with the lip-syncing. The whole plot was simple and random, but was okay. It might have been more true to form if you had the Runaway Five included in some way, but alas. As for the music, it was an interesting pick but I guess that goes with the whole randomness of the movie. Also, I agree that the Theed Zombie music should have been used instead of Mr. Saturn's Hi Hi Hi song; to make it more ominous sounding.

Overall, it's a pretty entertaining movie and I enjoyed it. Nice job!

Thank you very much for the review.

Originally I did use the Threed music, but after watching it a few times, it didn't really give me what I wanted for the scene. I really wanted to give the feeling of goofyness and confusion for the scene, so I thought Mr.Saturn would have fit well.

I thought about putting in the Runaway Five, but I had so many sprites in the end, I had to pick and choose which ones to use while I made it. Although this was my first EB project, so doesn't mean the Runaway Five won't show up in the future ones.

Thanks again for the review, take care.

NIce stuff!

I loved it the idea the way you did it was even better! I really feel you should step up the game a bit and get a team together! and make it longer, funner, and have it drawn. I mean the way you picture it of course. I look forward to seeing a remake of this and i feel it will be even better!

good music and good pixel animations

sorry to say it MasaAndMune but his name is actually porkey not pokey

MasaAndMune responds:

Actually his name is Pokey in Earthbound, since that is what they translated it directly into from Mother 2 into Earthbound.

He actually is not given the name "Porky" in Earthbound. The only times he is actually given the "Porky" name, is in the English translated ROM of Mother 3, and also in SSBB, which they gave him the name "Porky" since it was a more accurate translation.

But he is indeed named Pokey in the original Earthbound translation.

And yes, I do know the name Pokey is suppose to mean Porky, but that's not what Earthbound originally translated it into, so I didn't want to do Porky, since there were probably going to be more people that said, its "Pokey", not "Porky"

Anyways, thanks for the review.

Not too bad

It was a simple, enjoyable flash with a twist to an otherwise obvious plot. Keep up the good work on these shorts!
