I feel I have to address this problem first and foremost. The flash continuously loops without even a "play again?" screen to dictate it. This makes it especially frustrating when trying to conduct a review such as this.

Aside from my small gripe with the repetitious nature of the flash, there isn't much I can complain about. The animation is very stylized while allowing everything to be distinguishable. The music is also very good, both minimal and epic at the same time.

Again I must hearken back to the looping of the flash as it bogs literally everything down. The music is good, but gets annoying by the 5th or 6th time I hear it and I begin to detect the roughness in the artwork I said was great. The looping very nearly kills the flash for me. Which is a shame because otherwise it is a good flash.

Hey and thanks for the review. I have finally edited the movie and it now has the play button I had forgotten to add :)

Very rough animation and not too pretty graphics here, but this doesn't mean that this flash is bad. Oh no, it's the "inner values" that count, right? I think the story is pretty nice here. Makes you think about all the little "miracles" that happen every day and that no one really notices.

Also, the musical choice is pretty good. I think the song fits very well to the movie. Some additional sound effects would've been nice, though.

The only thing that's really missing is a replay button. I just don't like it when a flash loops endlessly.

Overall, a good submission, with some minor flaws here and there. But still an enjoyable flash.

Thanks for your review! I've now edited the submission and added the replay button I forgot to put in the first place.

For this review I've done it properly, sat down with some popcorn and completely zoned out into the animation, which is very smooth and can't really be faulted but I wasn't the biggest fan of the art work, it seemed rushed and with little detail.

Another point I would like to bring up at this point is the looping which as I'm writing this is driving me insane and making me mute my laptop, it really needs to be changed so that it comes to a stop with a replay button. The last thing I will point out is that I really haven't a clue what is meant to be the point of this little tale, maybe some more time at the writing stage would have done it some good.

Thanks for this review too :) I have to admit I totally forgot to add the loading and play -buttons for this one as I just wanted to get over with uploading animation here as fast as I could. I'm thinking of adding them later when I have some time for it.

Pretty smooth animation. I don't like your art style that much but who am I to complain. The music really compliments the animation I must say. I would've liked a preloader but I don't really mind. Pretty Good!
