Just want to thank Tom for the front page and for choosing a fancy new icon file (nice choice btw). Thank you NG users for all of your votes, input, and reviews, couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Freakin' daily 1st and weekly 4th, pretty damn awesome. I'm definitely going to be doing more with this series, so be on the lookout!



After a long hiatus from animation and arena-style battles, I present to you, Goobers Arena! For those of you who've enjoyed my Stick Dude Killing Arena series; This is a huge step up and something you'll freaking love! You'd better anyway... You know, if you want to.

Anyway! It's full of bloody goodness and gory kills; It's got Medals, Extra Features, and Stuff! Enjoy!

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

2.5 stars out of 5.
MexiPino, You animation was solid but when I noticed it was similar ot a stick death movie(except using goobers) I started to lose interest right away. I was going to quit at about the 1/2 way mark but decided I should watch the whole thing first.
My interest peaked when the Ryu Goober showed up. When he died I started to lose interest again. I really had little interest if these goobers died nor how they died. The stick death arena thing has been done to death I think. The placement of weapons spikes and such made me wonder how some of the items would be used, but by the 1/2 way point I had little interest to know.
When I checked other comments to see if I was the only one who felt this way I noticed someone wrote that the pacing was to slow. I agree with that.
As I said before, your animation is top notch though. It was great how the goobers were not just lying on the floor dead, but split in two or smashed and parts of their skin stretched or cut in different ways.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

WOW INCREDIBLE!!! could we have another newgrounds legend in the making!? first madness then killbunny now GOOBERS!!! while many may notice the similarities i can say by far yours is the funniest i really enjoyed it especially the part where the little ryu guy jumped out as a street fighter fan i was rooting for him XD & if i may suggest maybe put a Ken character in the next one ( he's my fav : ) ) & for a change of venue maybe some vehicle combat on a future submission ? good job 10/10 pls make more thx

Thanks M8state! Wow, it's pretty cool to be compared to the likes of those series'; Dude, to have my creations adopted by the NG crew would be fucking amazing. Seriously, I would be winning at life, haha.

Haha, cool that you enjoyed the bits of humor in the movie. There's a few parts that tend to crack people up.... A lot of people laugh at the part where the moustachioed dude loses his mustache after getting kicked by Ryu-Goober. I knew there'd be some street fighter fans that'd like that inclusion. Yeah, I'm definitely wanting to include another fighting game favorite in the sequel.... Ahh, vehicle combat. That sounds good too.

Thanks for your review man!!!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A pretty awesome "arena full of people filling eachother" movie.
I considered a lower score because of the pace but I didn't because you aren't using stickman and it is probably harder with the animation you're using.
I wouldn't mind seeing more of these "goobers" in the feature!

Thank you!!! Jeez, at least somebody understands. It was about 10x more difficult and time-consuming to animate these guys compared to your standard stickman. It gets pretty annoying hearing,"You should have 3 - 4 dudes on screen at once!" ...idk, you end up missing the details and nuances I included in the movie, I think. Plus, it fucking takes forever to animate these dudes. lol. Thanks for your review!
