You put your best foot forward
I can easily see great things coming from you. If these are "warm ups" I can't wait to see the results of further solo work or working with others on collaborations.
I honestly find nothing at fault with this submission; you're just sharing your first efforts, and you deliver. Again, I'll be watching you; you're gonna rock this place hard!
The idea is funny, but it's presented poorly. There are times where the "wakka wakka" gets extremely grating, and isn't necessary (the Pokemon battle comes to mind). If you tidied things up, this could be a nifty submission. Until then, though, it's not worth viewing.
Just came from watching your other movies so far, and I'm rather surprised by the Barney sprites. Given your drawing/animation quality, or rather you demonstrating you know how to do it and have your own style, they are jarringly out of place. I know, this is the earliest Flash you've submitted, but even in just this one submission you show enough skill to know have to use sprites. If you were trying to get this sort of a reaction with the sprites coming outta nowhere, then so be it, but I think trying to get a "wtf" reaction from the user... you could have done something else. Hell if I know what it woudl be...
Otherwise, kick ass submission.
A Nice Experience
This was a very pleasant surprise to stumble upon. Great concept, loved the artwork, and overall it's presented well. However, am I wrong in that there is no master menu to quickly jump to a certain artist or entry in the collab? If there is, I apologize for my oversight. Aside from that, I'm looking forward to any further submissions like this.
There isn't a piece selection menu because we felt every piece should get a fair chance to be viewed.
Thanks for the review!
Agreeing with djhannesx
This project is well rounded. The gameplay is quick to grasp and fun at first. The music and sounds fit the graphics, and it's presented nicely. However, there isn't enough variety to really motivate me to stick around and go further. Different enemies or different power ups would be welcome, just something to break up the "routine" the game quickly settles in to.
You said it took about a week to make, and again it's a nice project as it stands. But, with some more time, this could turn in to something great. I'll be watching for when that happens. Until then, thank you for sharing this project with us, and keep on rockin'!
One button games tend to either be incredibly good, or incredibly bad. This game is the former, in spades. Gameplay is straight-forward, the presentation perfect, and sound and graphics exactly what they need to be.
I still can't believe how many people (from what I've seen in the App Store) are complaining for "more content" like "different level set ups" and so on. This game is a great example of how sometimes less can be more. I'm a huge fan of when developers and designers can provide just the right amount of content, and even more of a fan of when they go the minimalistic route and nail it.
As of time or writing, both the Flash and iPhone version has not yet established leaderboards, but honestly that's not something I'd lessen my review over.
Thank you for both creating and sharing this game with us. Keep on rockin'!
I've been a fan of Cave Story since before even the translation came out, and as a pianist/musician even more appreciative over the awesome music. So, it's nice to find remixes and tributes that truly let the original idea/feel of the music for when and how it was used ring true. Just from the first few opening seconds I had fond memories of how frantic the battle that goes with this song can get.
Great job, and thank you for both creating and sharing this remix with us. Keep on rockin'!
Even before the translation? That's definitely something! I know how it feels (why wouldn't I? I made 3 Cave Story remixes XD); when I played the game, it wasn't only awesome in gameplay but every single track seemed to be as well.
Thanks so much for the review! It's good to know that this remix of mine has been able to be appreciated by fans of Cave Story like you! Keep on rockin'? Don't I always? :D (except for some classical pieces here and there)
Also, if you're interested in my 2 other remixes, they're called HUZZAH (remix of...you should know, and is on Newgrounds) and Core Oppression (my absolute best remix of anything to date). ^^
Absoluetly beautiful... dark but not dissonent... Good job!
Good use of beats and awesome vareity of instruments. Well done project! Could be used in a variety of situations!
