It sounds pretty cool but...
The idea sounds pretty cool, but you should probably invest in a better animator if you want anybody to take you seriously. No offense, but your guys look pretty... well... bad.
The story seems pretty well thought out, but there are a few minor details you might want to change (ie the specs of the diamond soldier suit) to keep the story from jumping the shark. Its kind of hard to take a story seriously when you have an android piloted by a captured soul shooting ice and fire out of his hands.
I'd even recommend changing the "captured soul" thing if it weren't a crucial part of the story. Like, if its a changeable detail, you might want to make it a mortally wounded soldier's soul or something.
All and all, it seems like a pretty solid idea, there are just a few details you might want to change to make it at least somewhat believable.
Thanks very much for the review. I shall change some of the perks, definately the shoes, and I shall make up the name for a super strong metal making them very hard to destroy or something. The hand actually kind of detaches and from the place where it used to be, a small cannon like thing will pop out with inter changeable modes, although I didn't really make this very clear!
Thanks for the review!
If you fancy a peak at the teaser trailer, you can find it here:
It Certainly Made Me Happy
Pretty well done animation. The only criticism I have is that the cashier's walk cycle was kinda sloppy. You could probably fix it in about 10 - 20 minutes of editing frames... But other than that, it was cleverly done. Nice Job.
Color Would Make This an 11
This is a really well done animation, but I think if you went back and added detail and color to the characters then it would be even better. One of the distinctive features of Alice in Wonderland is the bizarre and colorful landscape. You pulled it off pretty nicely in black and white, but color would have given this the extra umph that it needs. Still 10 stars because everything (aside from the lack of color) is absolutely superb.
Not bad, not bad at all. The sound quality was a little meh, but other than that, good job. Everything looked really smooth and moved at a good pace. It didn't go too fast or too slow. It worked just right for this kind of hyperactive animation. I would definitely suggest going back and putting a pre-loader in though, its not a whole lot of work for something that adds a bit of professionalism to an animation.
Belongs on YTMND
This so badly belongs on YTMND. Also nice job ripping off the idea of the other guy. If it wasn't so funny I'd almost be mad. But the 8 bit version of take on me just wins.
Should go on YTMND
Title says it, but its a neat little flash I guess.
The style that you do these animations in matches the art style of team fortress 2 very closely.The solid shapes and bright colors give it a very 50s - 60s feel. The voice could use a little work (the accent disappeared at parts) but other than that, this is a very nicely done animation. Keep up the good work.
The most striking thing in this animation to me was the art. Everything looked really top notch and every frame could have been a piece of artwork on its own. Really really good job. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
Sadly, its a rarity to find something on Newgrounds that is as genuinely emotional and heart-warming as this. I really enjoyed this flash. The music was spectacular and really added a lot to the already very stylized animation. And the characterization was done very well considering the lack of dialogue. It's often really difficult to tell a good story without words, but this animation was absolutely superb in that respect. Although the basic frame of the story is a bit cliche, I found it very moving. I even began to tear up a little towards the end. It's difficult for me to express fully how impressed I am with this, so I'll just leave it at that.
Keep up the great work guys! b(^.^)d <-- Two Thumbs Up
A Bit Coarse But...
The humor is a little coarse for my usual taste, but you executed it very nicely. Altogether a pretty entertaining flash. Keep working on your animation and I think you'll have some really top notch stuff in the future. I look forward to part two!
