that was actually full on amazing. action packed, entertaining to the max :D i expected it to be awesome but that was just mind blowing. i mean, the greatness of the fights and how much the moves and styles varied. and the fact that it just never got boring at all. and i loved how the ground broke and everything. it was so awesome. im trying hard to think why i shouldnt give this a 10. but the truth is, this is pretty much as good as stick fights get. and i think this will be the first 10 ive ever given in a review on ng :P well done guys.
wow mesmay :O
this is Fitzy from SPP :) i hadnt seen this till now. this is awesome, it seems quite dark but has an awesome atmosphere, it says seeds(1) so is there going to be more?
anyway great job, all the effects were great (the bio bot stabbing the other one at the end was amazing!) and the animation was great, fantastic job :D
this means a lot from you, thanks =3
that was awesome, at least, for what was there it was awesome :D it was short...but it didn't feel too short. also great cuz it was action packed. it also had a bit of humour in there. just brilliant, good job...the fighting was very well done.
this is a very well made puzzle game. simple on the surface but requires sufficient planning. i'm only on a relatively early level but i dont want to forget to write a review for it :P.
i just think it's a massive shame that you submitted it on a day with 4 submissions over 4.2, leaving yours with only a chance of daily 5th, when it deserves much more, in reality it should get daily top 2 and front page so i feel a bit gutted for you. but realise you've created a great game which will keep my brain occupied for a while :P. i love the simplicity of what's there but how that simplicity can make a difficult mind boggling game that ends up taking a fair bit of brain power to complete so seriously VERY well done :D
it wasn't too bad, but it wasnt good either. you made the navigation easy which is always a good thing, and you put some of the basic stuff in, however, alot more is needed really.
your design page isnt too bad, and although im sure it could be better, i cant really give any advice on how to improve it...
the moves page though...it scans over the basics, but there needs to be so much more detail in order to be good. all you did on the second page of it was show the actual move, like the frame of the hit, not how to do it. it doesnt greatly help. and honestly, i didnt think the punch example was that good, i went through it frame by frame, and obviously watched it through a few times. the sticks jumping in the canvas looked okay, but when it came to the punch, it wasnt very good at all to be honest:
firstly, contrary to what you said, i dont think the blackness was needed. and the movement leading up to the punch and the punch itself wern't very good. he stayed in the exact same stance for too long (just moving forward a bit each frame). looking at it, all you did was make him jump in the air (which was fine) but then you made him stay the same for a good four or so frames, what you need to do, is even when he's staying in the same position, still redraw him anyway, honestly it makes it look better. then when it came to the punch all it was was him in the same position as before, except this time he had his arm stretched with some sudden blur and blackness which made it hard to know what he was doing (and i think neither the blur or the blackness were necissary, especially for the amount of frames that the blur was shown). the punch frame needs to be fully redrawn from the last frame. he needs to lean into the punch more, i dont know, its hard to explain, but it just didnt look right, and therefore isnt really great for a tutorial, it looked like it had hardly any impace, which isnt good for a section showing impact.
you didnt say how to do the effects and when to use them effectively which is something that i would think is important in an animation like this.
the background section was far too simple, it needs more showing of how to draw backgrounds etc
overall it was okay, but needs alot of improvement and is really too basic. but not a bad start anyway, just improve on it. i just cant see it helping greatly since its too basic. but it at least tells you whats good and what to do so it might help some people. it could use more example videos next time.
hope i didnt seem too harsh, just trying to give advice :)
wow, thanks for the excellent review. i was not expecting this lenght. Thank you.
Ok so just to recap a litle, its a tips and tricks followthrough and of course I understand what you mean, I touched but the tip of the iceberg. You've encouraged me to do a bigger and better one. I'll add all of those litle details for the next ones to come.
Thanks again St3lf
i found it quite difficult cuz people just come at random and it sometimes gives you literally no chance to save all of them. not a bad effort though...
