ACS- Block: Act 1

Share Collapse

Author Comments

The first ever flash animation made by ACS (8bitnemesis), a two man team attempting to entertain the masses. This is the first act in the "Block" series which is a slightly different perspective on what happens in PONG. Is it a simple game of back n forth, or is it a means of keeping a destructive force at bay? You judge....though its probably the destructive one.


It's nice to see some decent frame-by-frame animation around here somewhere. I'm, quite frankly, impressed by your fbf. The block rolling down and eventually falling was simply a great display animation-wise and timing-wise.

While the art is indeed simplistic, it's the consistency in the animation and the style that's overall impressive.

There were some parts that I felt needed more exaggeration, along with some parts that I felt needed to sped up, but only by a little. These specific parts I'm talking about, however, are minor and don't affect my overall outlook on this flash too much.

My only other complaint is the lack of a preloader. Google "NG Flash Loaders," move the entire timeline up by one frame, and in the very first frame, copy and paste the preloader; there you have it, a working preloader!

Hope this helped! 4/5

Thanks alot there will definetly be a preloader in the next one and I'm going to try and step up my animation even more, this was just a first step.

Good idea, Voice acting (or grunt acting) wasnt the best but wasn't the worst. I think the end was a little to sudden though. Maybe you should have had it fade back out into another game of pong?

Thanks, due to the size we were haveing serious issues saving and keeping the flash altogether so we had to end it short, will consider this for the next one though.

A creative look at Pong that i thoroughly enjoyed

Happy Violence.

for this to be your first animation surpassed my standards by a light year.
fantastic work

Thanks that really means a lot. Hopefully we learn much more later on...like a preloader T_T
