My review, your flash.
Everything production wise is done well: load, intro, menu, animations and transitions are all smooth, time syncing is excellent, audio use and editing fits, credits are paced quickly. The animation as a whole is fast paced without being outright choppy which is really the most impressive thing about this, but the humour just isn't present.
A better animation/video idea with the same level of skill put into it would have such a stronger outcome.
"If your actual age is less then your brain age your mind is in great shape!
If your brain age is older then your actual age, you just need a little work."
So a game about intelligence based off of 3 simple visual/mathematical questions is telling me a contradictory conclusion about my 'brain age'.
While I get this isn't intended to be some scientific work, grammar mistakes and contradicting conclusions look really poor given the context.
The music loops repeat obnoxiously often too.
My review, your video.
Score more for the song then the video.
The story boarding works, fullfil it with proper animation, backgrounds and colours, keep things smooth moving, stylized and quick paced, and I would be shocked if this didn't make front page.
As for the song itself, I'm not a big DBZ fan, but this felt like easy to understand, tasteful humor that does not fall into usual gratuitous meme pitfalls.
The singing fits the characters voices, its relatively on pitch, the words are clever, and its just refreshing to see something of this caliber. I hope you maintain this level of work ethic.
I'm pretty stingy when it comes to giving out praise, but I really enjoyed listening to this, and the visual aid did add a little more of an image in my mind.
With fulfilled graphics, I'd be giving this full scores.
Well this was pretty bad too.
Audio clips a lot + has white ambient noise.
Animation isn't smooth, doesn't really look like flash, looks like it was an avi imported into flash.
No point, not funny, doesn't reference anything in clever ways, not insightful.
Add some sort of plot and maybe you'll get an improved response.
If you've stated yourself it isn't awesome, why are you bothering putting it up?
I am impressed that what I thought was garbage, has proven to only have diminished in its near turd like appearance into something less. Maybe meconium.
You've been getting poor scores for quite some time now.
Pick up something else, animating isn't your thing, infact making funny spam isn't your thing either, I'm not laughing. Go join a cricket team or something.
Or shock us all and make a decent flash.
You did an arse of a job.
The new microphone was a wise investment, it really raised the quality of the video twofold in my opinion. I noticed a slight improvement in graphics and animations (the few that arepresent) are smoother, which is good.
Jokes and plot are good, I chuckled to myself a few times. Thats good too.
There was a bit of backgrounds music while in Aethalons tree, that added to the atmosphere, it was subtle but a good subtle.
Make sure as you go with these the characters do develop, stagnant characters are boring.
Also given this being about gamers on an island, you've been using some game related humour, tap into this market and keep the gamer jokes coming, becuase their effectively an inside joke that millions of people can get, which from your stand point is viewers, support, and potentially some money from people clicking those damn sponsors.
I'm thinking the replay screen was a bit week, and you could devise either a preloader or main screen that better sells the episodes, something pretty or funny, just something more memorable then what it is now.
Overall, good stuff, I hope the quality of the episodes continue to grow as this one did from the last.
Rehashed flash with vaguely different audio featuring a meme. This seems like shameless self promotion for your youtube videos, which we don't really need on this website.
The animation and what not is nice and all, but you've put up one just a day or two ago. Their just two blobs that bounce up and down on spot with happy/angry faces. It looks good but you've done nothing new to create this, its short, has no point, and frankly isn't even funny self-advertising.
Audio quality is low too.
Some funny stuff in there, and voice acting is always good.
I'd highly recommend doing what you've done, then go back and smooth up the animations / add more. Its funny at some parts, IE: Cheap tribal charge, but at others like Cupcake's/Lethaeon's cage opening, its just.. god awful.
Work on making it a bit snappier/faster paced and people will eat this stuff up.
Lol, yeah, I get what you're saying. Thanks.
Its hard to tell if this is spiteful or cynical.
Generally, generalizing about the public is going to result in some angry individuals, I expect to see some internet flaming come up in the reviews for this.
Short, not THAT funny, no sound, questionable content in terms of 'easy or not' for an audience to appreciate. Don't expect great marks on this one.
Anime makes me feel like a pedophile every time I see it.
Sounds like you just clipped audio and matching video to losely follow what sounds like some nursery rhyme tune.
I did not find this funny, nice sounding, nor was I aware of any necessary level of skill to have made this.
4/10 cause it probably did take a fair bit of time to compile, so I'll praise your patience.
