An honest one
I prefer the original for a few reasons... But that didn't stop yours being a good effort.
1. I'd seen the joke
2. the gradients on the cannon... it just didnt fit in with the 2D style
3. The hands for the money exchange didn't it in either.
In spite of these it was quite good but as i said i thought the original was better
P.S. I'm considering starting flash myself and i wanna ask if there's any hardware, software or tips you could let me know of... please?
