Reviews for "Super Duck Hunt"

It's not even a good story. That's so disapointing... I expected something better. It was almost like watching Final Fantasy "The Spirit Within". Did at least this thing have a script? I know that dog deserved some punishment for laughing at us. That was a weird war. The only part I really liked was the one where the first time we saw Peach... She was actually a Toad in disguise.

Anyway, you did a good work with those sprites. Nice animation. That's why I'm giving you 5. In overall, I would give you 1, but working that dog and being not paid for that (I bet) is remarkable.

The story was naturally an after thought to tie together a series of ideas for animation (I started this when I was 17, its naturally disjointed); however the version currently running on anything other than mobile devices is old and not really representive of the final cartoon.

Newground's current server problems are stuck and unable to display the more refined (2 minutes shorter, better music, widescreen and polish) mp4 version. Im not sure what version you seen but I personnally feel the new movie is much more tolerable.

If you're curious either load this page on your mobile/tablet or watch it on youtube, cheers :)


well i see Kirby, Toad, The triforce, All the Mario enemy's, Peach........ BUT WHERE IS MARIO?!

That was spectacular!

It's been a while since I saw a sprite movie that doesn't recycle the same shit we've seen so many times. How the hell did this slip under the radar is a total mystery to me. Too bad that this doesn't have a higher score.

Graphics: You did an excellent job on ripping, customizing, importing, and animating the sprites. It's even more amazing that you did all of your editing in MS Paint, which gets a very bad rap. All of that effort was painstaking, but it was all worth it in my book. (Especially considering that you had to make it all under system specs.) Kudos for NOT saving your backgrounds as .jpegs, which doesn't blend well with pixel art or vector art.
Music and sound: I will say that you have the ear for music as all of those NES songs fit perfectly. Also worth mentioning is that you managed to use some obscure games for music (FF3, Lagrange Point, Akumajou Densetsu, and the NES Earthbound). As for the sound effects, I like how you took some liberties without going overkill. That's highly commendable.
Content: You sir have the eye of a director; something that only a few on NG truly posess. Every scene was well-staged, cohesive, composed, and the camera movements were also great. In addition, your pacing was perfect considering that this was a war-themed cartoon. Did I mention that I thought that this was funny at parts? However, the only flaw is that there were spelling mistakes.

What I liked about this:
-Underused subject
-Great music selection
-Excellent sprite work
-Top-notch direction

What I didn't like:
-Spelling mistakes

Overall: I think a ten would be most appropriate for this. (5/5)

Thank you so much for the Review, I had no idea Tom had finally featured Duck Hunt in the Parody collection.

Fairly chuffed to be getting fond reviews once again, makes it all feel a little more worth while. Particularly surprising to me since this is the old version that featured some major pacing issues.

The Youtube and eventual MP4 Newgrounds (Having client issues with my slow connection) version are far superior to what you've seen but still, thanks alot, made my day. :)
