i saw the first one last year, and i just decided to go to sfdt today and saw this. i obviously decided to come here cuz i knew it would be here. and its awesome, at first i was like...oh no, wtf the screen is tiny, but it was cool with the explosion and making it bigger.
so yeah, ive already seen dead silent one, and this was an exellent sequel, and im with you, there isnt many fighting toons out there now, so i too try to keep them going with the xiaoness, and thats why i make them. although there is always those people who say 'omfg xiao style, sux' or 'omfg sticks, sux' but i love making em and thats why. and finally ive seen a brilliant author who can make them plain fights great. i applaud you.
so yeah, the bg wasnt much, but thats fine, flat surface, flat ground fight, fine. and i know its hard to get lots of them on the screen at once without them dieing quickly, but alternatively you could have loads and they could get knocked down easy, but get back up again, and after a couple of knock downs, they die, that would make it more realistic.
so keep it up, ill be looking out for the next one (in a couple of years ;p). but if you can, sooner :p. erm yeah, thats about all i have to say. and it is brilliant, but im gonna give a meer 9/10 rather than the full 10, as it can always be improved...and i know you wont dissapoint.
flaws: died too easily
i suppose there could be more weapons
mabey a background, although without one is fine, it'd be good to have the sticks be interactive with the background.
coolness stuff: great fight moves
overall thing was just great
im glad to see a fight like this again, its been a long time since ive seen one of these as good as this, well done.
