Absolutely amazing from start to finish!!!
I'd been closely monitoring the progress of this installment of the Brackenwood series, and was very excited when your news post on your userpage notified us that we had only 2 days to wait! Then 2 days later I was browsing the net and my portal guard (a tool for notifying me when submissions enter the portal) popped up saying that Waterlollies had been submitted! I immediately viewed it and was left stunned.
The graphics are the best I've ever seen in a flash animation; your artwork is always a visual feast for the eyes, but this one just blew your previous animations out of the water! Then there was the music which worked flawlessly with the animation and Brackenwood's scenery in general. You even got the guy who scored the Tomb Raider games to do this, no wonder I loved the music!
As for the storyline, I loved it! To see what Bitey does without his one main advantage, his speed, was a masterstroke. Adding references back to previous Brackenwood stories was a great idea as well, as not everyone would have seen these, and may well do so now. You even included the information about the Waterlollies as well, I always think attention to detail is important, and you get definite thumbs up for this.
As you've said this is your most complete Brackenwood tale yet. You managed to include many of the previous creatures from other tales in this one, as well as a reference to Bitey's fear of spiders. This always makes me laugh as he makes out he's this tough badass rebel, but he freaks out over these tiny creatures.
The one thing that I'm unhappy about is that I know I'm going to have to wait a fair amount of time for more tales from Brackenwood. I can't wait, as I know they'll be even better than this one, and I'm not even sure how that is possible! Also, I hope that the next story might move away slightly from Bitey as the main character, as I'm not sure what else you can write for him storyline wise. Maybe follow other Brackenwood characters and have Bitey crop up every now and again. But who knows, you could take Bitey's character and move it to even greater heights, which would be fantastic!
I applaud you sir, as you are an animation genius, and this is proof of that!
Comedy genius at its best!!!
This really cracked me up, fucking hilarious. Not only that the graphics are very well done and the timing is perfect. Ok, it's a little short, but that doesn't matter at all, as I got just the right amount of comedy injected into my brain by the end. I'm certainly adding this bad boy to my favourites!
Messed up, but very funny
It's a very dark animation, but still very very funny. Also, I'm glad you mentioned Mr Fluffy testifying, as I would have been horrified if he had been killed!
Even though the comedy was awesome I do have a couple of criticisms. Firstly there is the fact you've used stick figures as they don't require much artistic talent to create. Fortunately the comedy makes up for this and doesn't really detract from the submission that much. Secondly, the quality of the audio could have been better; it was quite hard to make out what the dad said in the bar. In this case subtitles may have helped if you didn't want to redo the audio.
Overall an excellent submission, but there is room for improvement.
Good game, but it needs a lot of improvement
I liked it, but there are several areas you could make better.
1) Some background music would help.
2) Something needs to be done about the white edge to the playing field.
3) Some kind of time limit would make the game more exciting.
4) Nothing happened when I reached the end, you need to let the player know they've reached the goal.
5) More levels.
You've got the beginnings of a good game; you just need to expand on it.
I love this game!
This game is the bees kness. I get sick to death of the typical dress up type games (the basic premise being remove the clothes and oogle the badly drawn naked woman), but this wasn't like those at all.
Firstly the mission is to pleaure her, which I like, it promotes the fact that women aren't there to just get you off, give something back! ;)
Secondly, the game is actually a challenge (so much in fact I had to look at the walkthrough to complete it, shame on me). I like games that keep me entertained for longer than 30 seconds, and this definitely did the job.
Thirdly, the graphics are great, but probably could do with a face-lift. However, the gameplay does make up for it though.
Finally, the music is OK, but can get very monotinous after a while.
Love the game, I really hope you do make another.
It was fun for about 5 minutes
It was a nifty little game, but it didn't hold my attention for very long. The music loop got very irritating very quickly. I know it's the classic NG frontpage music, but there wasn't even a mute button, I had to turn my speakers off!
Apparently my account is worth $60.38, not bad I guess.
So overall nice, but needs to be alot more interesting and the audio needs re-thinking.
So awesome I used it in a video!
Well, what can I say, this track is kick ass. Very punchy, and well constructed. I honestly can't stop listening to it, good going!
In fact, I thought it was so good I used it in one of my videos of my year in Canada. I didn't even realise you were Canadian when I chose it! You can see the video at:
