Run Kirby, Run -Short-

[NEWS FLASH] If this gets high ratings, I will definitely be motivated to make an extended version. :D

[EDIT] This was not meant to have a story, I did this for my class assignment. Kirby is just suppose to run through a stage. This flash was meant for tweening and bouncing. So the whole thing was more aimed at the motion and the bouncing when Kirby lands on the ground and the ball.

The clouds in the beginning can't be blurred because it will lage the whole flash. It was the source of the problem this whole time :P

Finally finished it to MY liking. Everyone I showed was pretty amazed at the work I put in on it. I spent a lot of my time working on this flash.

I did this for my flash class for the 1st assignment. I really showed that I'm NOT going to fall off this quarter! The assignment was for bouncing and tweening, so I didn't want to make this long. It was meant to be short...

I hope you enjoy! If there are any issues with it, don't hesitate to post a comment. Oh and be nice about it okay? I'm not the greatest flash animator so I'm going to be scratchy in some areas.

Your Kirby Short Cartoon makes my Kirby Short Cartoon look like shit.

AdventAxl responds:

Well as you state in you flash, it's your 1st animation without sprites. I'm assuming that you are using high fps (frames per second) since sprite flashes need to be a high fps. You must be used to using the numbers and didn't take notice to how much of a difference changing the pace would've done, if this makes sense :P

You did a pretty good job, anyone can tell you that, but IMO you did a better job than I did on my 1st flash ever. I left some con-crit on your flash for you okay?


I barely remember playing any kirby games, but this seems pretty similar to the gameplay. i'll give you a 7 for that

AdventAxl responds:

Ouch. I guess I'll vote this as a useless review since that is a stupid reason to give a score like that.

I enjoyed it.

I always loved playing Kirby games as a child. This flash brought back all the good times. I thank you for making it.
Though, yes, it does seem to lack an form of plot, it is just an animation assignment, no?
Right, well, again. Good job.

AdventAxl responds:

Meh, there shouldn't me a cinamatic story to every flash y'know? I updated the comments so it should explain what's the point of all of this.



Not that Kirby is particularly hard to draw, but this was animated pretty well. Good job with the lighting and making the enemies get startled/out of the way.
The ball enemy made me think something else would happen, but it turned out it had no significance at all. I don't expect everyone to whip out a Final Fantasy A+ for a classroom project, but it couldn't hurt to give this movie a little more meaning/conclusion.

Other than that, I think you should credit where you got the song/sound effects (or anything else you didn't make) from. Keep at it, I like seeing Kirby movies (particularly non-sprite ones). Or whatever else you make, I'm sure it'd be decent judging by this movie.

AdventAxl responds:

I originally planned to make Kirby do the Epic dance, Kirby copying the ability and fight the tree enemy, but I had a deadline and freezing flash program. It also would've been too much for a 1st assignment...can you image how much I will have to top that one flash for 10 weeks? Craziness right?

It's a good idea I should give credit. I just edited the flash giving credit, thanks for the tip. Also this flash inspired me to make more flashes, so I might be making more as good as this one.


Apart from the shortness I thought it was really awesome. No problem with your flash skills, the background was very nicely done, the animation was fine. Hope you get an A, Kudos

AdventAxl responds:

Deadline and the freezing flash made it short. I had plans for this, but I made due with what I needed to get my A+

BTW they loved the flash!
