Yeah, this is my first time actually trying a new style of flash animation. Well, it would be cool in the earlier days of Newgrounds.

The jokes came from when me and my cousin were playing Star Wars Battlefront.



Rated 3 / 5 stars

Darth Vader doesn't need a nickname...

The animation was alright, it could've been better. A lot of the talking was hard to understand and Darth Vader can't really sing. You might want to make the flash a bit more understandable to audiences that aren't hardcore Star Wars fans. And yet, I still enjoyed it.

Dosensuppen responds:

Hi. This is a parody.

Anyhow, the talking seems to be an issue, but I tried to make the voices sound more like they're in a helmet. And most people i showed this to was able to understand them perfectly. I guess Newgrounders are deaf or something.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Pretty good

Pros: The concept was funny. I liked how you interpreted Darth Vader's character. I loved the ending. The animation was good.

Cons: A lot of the dialogue was hard to understand. This movie could've been made accessible to a wider audience if you just cut the statement short at "sucks". The stormtroopers' armor looks too big in the, um... pelvis region. It's a bit odd-looking. Also, if you're actually going by Star Wars canon, I'm pretty sure that the empire didn't have any storm trooper clones by that period in time. I liked how Darth Vader tried to sing a little something to the Imperial March theme, but the melody didn't come out enough to really drive the joke home.

Dosensuppen responds:

Cons looks so much bigger than pros. :'(

aha cracked me up but voices not good quality.

Dosensuppen responds:

More information on how the voices are not good quality would be nice


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Room for improvement.

Hate to say it, but this flash is pretty average. However, you could definitely expand upon this and make a successful series. The voice acting was rather grainy, I don't know if it was just an effect or not. But it was hard to hear. That's really just the main issue. There were a couple moments that made me chuckle. However, you may want to make your videos longer, leaving more room for jokes. There are plenty of Storm Trooper parody videos around the internet, maybe you could look at some for inspiration, and turn this into something truly great.

Dosensuppen responds:

Yes, the audio was an effect. They're in helmets, what do you expect? I will not, however, look for other storm trooper parodies for inspiration, the idea is already set in stone. This was more to get it out there, and it is out there, and apparently doing well.
