PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE WATCHING! I am very new to flash animating, and I'm bad/new at this so don't be too harsh. The characters and names (sometimes the abilities) are all based on my friends, and there are a lot of inside jokes in this flash. There are also many problems with this flash, like sometimes I may accidentally switch the color of the character (which is fine since I provide reminders of who the character is), and if you click certain scenes in the scene select, the music won't play. Also, the scene names are really bad too. Since I'm new to this, the animation actually improves as it goes. A lot of additional important info will be in the credits. This flash is 13 fps.

BTW I'm SSBDarren64. Also, don't upload this to Youtube.

Ah, darren. That was awesome. Also I think aaron was the best one just for the things he did for his rent to patrick.

nice job

it was one of the best stick flash i seen great job hope to see more.

Pretty good!

For a relatively new animator, it wasn't half bad. What you need to work on though, is having a way to identify your characters with something other than colour. It was a little confusing how blue stick-men were on the red team, so maybe give them wristbands to signify which one they're on. Even better, do that, but also change the names of the teams so it's easier to tell people apart.

The sound was pretty good, and timed quite well. If you want to take the next step up, use some form of voice acting. Again, a good way to distinguish your characters. One problem was that if you used scene select, the music wouldn't start.

Bonus points for using the CaveStory theme. I hope to see more of you in the future. :)

SniperFugu responds:

Thanks =D. I'll make sure to distinguish more in future works.


That's one hell of a start, you just need to improve your animating skills a bit more, and you'll be much better......

:D good

first flash lol i'm very new to flash, but i know what it takes too make an animation and i must say you are fairly good :D
