Just because this is ur first flash doesn't mean it's good. I won't forgive you at all just because of that. You obviously have an insanely low standard for yourself. You didn't even make your own artwork! I'm making my first flash currently, and it's a hell of a lot better than this one. Sorry, I'm just P.O'd by people asking for forgiveness for their first flash. Mine isn't some crap. I'm actually putting time and effort into it. You should too.

I think with your own decent artwork and sounds, you could be could, because your actual animation skills are decent.

Art: Nonexistant
Animation: Fair
Sounds: Nonexistant

4/10, 2/5

Hey, you know, not bad.

The animation was kinda choppy, but as you said *First animation*.
The FPS was kinda slow and no preloader. I give it a 6!
First off this is really good for first animation, second, the idea was Kick the crap outta Bowser and send him back to the castle. I like the smash bros idea with him flying to the sky and dissapearing. Really good man, I am a new animator myself.

practice makes perfect.

I'm still new to animating myself. Though I've seen enough beginner animations to say you got a ways to go. I wont be so harsh on rating though since I know its your first. But I still have to be honest and give you a low score.
I'll never understand pixel animation, much less make it. So I'll say this; work on speed variations and fluency. Add some sound, and a default preloader, and perhaps make the animation a bit longer. Then you should at least have a decent score to get by with. Right now it looks too GIFy because of all that. Good luck to you.

Improve lots.

Normally, I'd chew out the animator for making something like this, but you seem to have at least made an earnest effort, despite not turning out very well.

First of all, the concept. Pretty much everyone who's watched a sprite movie on this site has probably looked at it and thought, "I could do that.", and what annoys me is that most of them are turning out the same, which is kind of why I'm getting sick of them nowadays.

Secondly, the actual animation part of the animation, you don't seem to have grasped the basic ideas of flash yet, because this doesn't look nearly as good as what it would've been if you knew what you were doing. The animation looks more like a really fast slideshow rather than actual moving images, how you managed to do that with sprites I do not know, then again my first animation looked pretty similar.

Finally, everything else you what I would be commenting on now if there was anything else to comment on, there's no story, sound or any form of ActionScripting, not even a newbie-proof preloader to stick on your first frame.

I hope you appreciate the 10 minutes I took out of my busy schedule of doing nothing, and I'd rather hope that you listen to everything I said.
