It's a good first try

I know it's your first go at sprites. I say increase frame rate, Mario should slow down and stop when he is underneath the '?' block, and Mario needs to get darker as Bullet Bill nears him, instead of just using a grey ellipse to show shadows. But it's a good start!

giving u 10/10 and i will look at ur.. profile for more cool stuff

you wont find anything

Tips for next time.

-] 5 frames per second is way, wayyyy too slow. Try speeding it up a little next time, it takes a bit more work but the overall result looks much better.

-] Adding a stop() function in the actions panel on the last frame will allow people to actually READ what you wrote there instead of getting halfway through and being ejected back to the loading screen.

-] Take a bit more time to clean up some of your animation, don't rush it.

that was 4 frame's per second i'm using 5 frame's for my next sprite animation
