Kind of short

And I am delighted to get started on another review of this flash movie, the work does show you putting the time and especially some effort to it, This is kind of interesting so it doesnt bore you but does actually keep you wondering what may come up next so thats some things i notoced right away about this flash. Animation was a concern here there was some various old tricks used here, but seems like some of those styles are outdated, and the animation hurt for it so those are some things you may want to ironout more perfectly. The story in this particular episode didnt really take off much and seemed more as a stale state, so thats another area that could use more depth and detail in. The "FIGHT-SCENE" was kind of impressive though and thatmight have been the strongest part of this episode. also noticed the music seemed to fit with this one. but anyways Adrellia Village series seems to take a liking with me as it is drawing more interest from me and i do look forward to more in the series, So as this review comes to a short end, it was a decent flash of good portion, could use more stuff here and there and some smoothing out on some areas, but i thought in the end it was just right and fittng with all that was happening so it was alright with me.

I was amused with this flash as it brought some entertainment value, and some other elements that brought stuff together but then there was some weaker points that could be worked on, adn adressed more heavily, and with alot more effort, So if i do suggest any advice and or ideas they would help on these flashes great i think, they do have potential, so its a good sense of entertainment. But anyways without furture adu here are some of those ideas to improve on. Well in this case the animation could have been better and smoother, The "STORY" could be worked on in this episode as it was rather dull and didnt givemuch to it.

Nothing overly spectacular here, just a situation of having your two dimensional "cut outs" waving at one another. That's not animation any more than shadow puppetry is high budget special effects. You need to work more on motion tweens and work out how things would look when the model turns in three dimensions, as opposed to flicking from facing one way to the other, as it looks amateurish here.

If you're going to say that we must watch the previous episode beforehand, perhaps a link would help? At least give us a number to add to the nav bar to look at.

I was unimpressed by the lives that Darrell had - it took me a while to comprehend that they were lives and each time his health went down to zero, he carried straight on with another life. It just wouldn't work in gameplay, I feel. Perhaps making a "real time" battle from Fanal Fantasy was the wrong way, so you should have parodied Mortal Kombat (Soul Caliber may have been better, since they use weapons).

Crediting a voice actor, when no actual voices were used was lame - there were even blocks of text that we had to read to carry on the story (they were up for way too long as well). There are so many issues here and I really hope that these reviews are making an impression, because they need to, else you will keep making the same mistakes.

Thank you for your review! They are, and episode 39 will be a good improvement!

I've been away for a while, so that's why I haven't reviewed the previous episodes. But I'm sure glad I at least watched them or else I would have had no idea why Drake and Brutus are fighting all of a sudden.

The fight scene has some funny moments, for example when Drake drinks some potions or uses magic spells (or the mouse pointer uses the spells, heh). Too bad the animations are so dull here or this might have become a really epic battle. But on the other hand, this is not a stick fight movie or something like that and the animations here do fit in the style of the other of the episodes.

I liked the Final Fantasy Battle theme at the end. This is the best battle theme there is and even though it is used in so many flashes it never gets old.

Well this one was rather short but kind of made me think of Kingdom Hearts one and two where hitting a foe at a higher level would deplete life bars of the bosses rather quickly and seeing how Darrell would easily get some get some strong hits in, makes me think of Sephiroth a little more too. Nice little boss battle and cool to hear "Maybe I'm a Lion" from Final Fantasy VIII which was Leon's theme.

The graphics here were nice and the shield and potion looked a bit like clip art to me but everything else seemed to be your own original work which is excellent. The sound effects were also very good to hear and I wonder how it shall go down when the boss battle continues in the next episode of the Adrellia Village series. Nicely done.

Overall, nice little boss battle and battle music.

MistyEntertainment responds:

Thanks! At the time, Kingdom Hearts was a main inspiration for the battle scenes with the life bar and whatnot. "Maybe I'm a Lion" also seemed like good battle music. The potion and Darrell's sword were clip art, but the shield was drawn in Flash.

I appreciate your review.

I like it,

Obviously, it's not very well drawn, but it's a fun little video to watch, I haven't watched the previous ones admittedly, which I apologize for (:
