I wanted to try my hand at a typography animation, so I figured I'd give it a whirl with one of my favorite voice acting tracks in the audio portal: Dmac's "Dot Dot Dot", based on a review of Super PSTW Action RPG, created by Rhete.

* Thanks a million, Tom, for the FP! :D
** The background track is from Carl Orff's 'O Fortuna' (1935)

Here's the ACTUAL review by axman13, beautiful misspellings and all (which was deleted, sadly):


i reley dont wan to say this, but i have to now.
this game is so esey. i mean, all you do is hit the spacebar. thats it! how is this an RPG anyway? you cant contrail anything but what it says on the screen! what if i didnt want to buy the potion? what apout quests? all you can upgrade is stranth? there is no way you can lose to the boss at the end! this game is crap! its not even an RPG at all! i mean look at it! in what way is this supposed to be an RPG if you can do quests and stuff? all you do is press one butten the entier time! explain to me! the athore coments al totol lies! is it supposed to be stick dudes? i dont even know how this damn game got the daily 3rd prize, or a rating of 4.26!
pepole think this review is worthles.

P.S the only reson im giving this a 1 is beacuase the voices where pretty good. but thats it!"



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


My friend and I tested this game, and he defeated the boss. All you had to do was press the space bar at a special moment. The game may be a rip off of RPG, but the idea was simple. Play the game again and keep pressing the space bar and you'll see what I mean

Good, but hiiiiiighly overrated.

This flash has been number 1 for a while now. Enough is enough. I keep seeing this and shaking my head. It seems all of newgrounds is impressed by good voice acting and "O Fortuna". Granted, Deven Mack did a very good job with this piece. But the flash does not deserve more than a 3 out of five, and I don't understand why people don't get that.

There is some very good animation in this piece, and good use of comedic timing. Every word is planned out to make a great impact with the viewer. But in the end, as epic as the sound is, THIS IS STILL JUST A VIDEO OF FANCY MOVING TEXT. Really! That's what this is. This entire movie of text. Granted, it moves in a fun way, but I would not give this movie more than 3 stars, because in actuality it is much more lacking in content than many other movies below it. Not to mention this took close to no creative thought on the author's part.

Think. You're voting all fives on a movie made up of "pretty" typography animation that was put to a voice acting track and the most overused "epic" song in all of history. You've even voted it higher than amazing movies like "Katan", which present an enthralling original story-line and smooth action-packed animation. Why that is, I don't understand.

Don't get me wrong, I very much appreciate this movie, and I like watching it just as much as anyone else. i find it funny and well animated and well executed. But not enough to make it the highest rated movie on newgrounds, not for a movie with close to no originality, which consists of animated (but none the less, only) words. Let's all stop getting swept up by epic music. Think about it, if there was no music, would you still rate it as highly as you are?

I leave Newgrounds for a year, and come back to this being the number one rated flash? lol Newgrounds has gone down the drain...


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

To be fair....

what the guy actually said kind of reminded me of one of the Futurama episodes with the "what if" machine, where Fry asks (in a roundabout way) what the world would be like if he had not been frozen for 1000 years. And the professor said "that's a good question, although you asked it in a really stupid way".

It sounds like the complaint is valid, in other words. If this comment was left about a "game" that involved hitting the spacebar only, and could not be lost (and in this case it doesn't even meet the definition of a game, because a game can be won and a game can be lost - although there are many popular time-killers that also don't meet the definition of a game - for instance, Space Invaders or Pac Man can never be won, and hedgehog launch can never be lost), and the one-dimensional program in question not even meeting the definition of a game let alone a role-playing game, it DOES sound like it was a pretty worthless thing he was reviewing. If you want to really make a satire of something stupid, I think you could do better than attacking something that makes an entirely valid point, albeit in a really stupid way. This video kind of reminds me of that youtube video one of those people who make those atheist videos put up (I think it was either patcondell or aronra) where he basically did the same thing with a bunch of threatening private messages he received from religious people of very shallow ethics he had offended.

RicePirate responds:

Why are you talking about a game that you've never played? Had you spent the time writing your review, playing the "Game", you'd realize the game was actually a joke. Type typetypetpypytype!

Decent, but not the best.

Bravo, you have achieved first place in the flash portal with this animation, and I'm quite glad you can be proud to display those awards. I will admit that the animation itself wasn't bad and the humor was ok. But, do you honestly believe that this is deserving of the top here on Newgrounds? Can you really claim that this is the "best" Newgrounds has to offer? Well either way, it was a decent movie. Again, congratulations with your awards.
