Sexy Alien Band Sexy Alien Band

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Go for it!

I think this is excellent work. I really appreciated the music style, which had a nice groove and fun beat. The cartoon video is a nice addition. Your characters are actually quite cute, and the whole ensemble seems credible. However, it wasn't obvious to me that the female character was actually there to parody the use of sexuality in other music videos. I just thought she was supposed to be the main centre of interest, appearing like in regular music videos (this might be partly due to the title of your video). For this, you might want to work on that aspect, if it is really important to you. But it occurs to me that, considering the excellent music style, your videos would be just as much enjoyable without green alien female tease. Oh yeah, and that short guitar player, with the hat and glasses... he needs to get dressed! Give him a black tux!

Other than that, this was a really cool video. I say go ahead with your concept, as it even has good music to back it up.

Thanks! I guess the "joke" with the girl alien is that although her only purpose in the band is to press the squeaker button, she still gets most of the camera time and the frontman(woman) of the band. I think the bass player probably just forgot his pants.. he seems like that type. Thanks for the detailed feedback!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Wow!

Now that's some good stuff! There's so much going on in this movie (or whatever I should call it), I don't know where to start this review! First of all, as it has already been said, even though there are (over!) fifteen short movies, you never get bored. You need a lot of imagination, and inspiration to create and animate it all—I know that for sure—and you did it. The simple graphic style is not at all at your disadvantage, because everything fits well together: it's simply a matter of integrating graphics, style and music. Well done. The animation itself was surprising: you've got good synchro with sound, and I suspect you'd be able to animate nicely objects or characters that would be much more complex (why don't you try it out?). And finally, your music is a delicious assortment of videogame pieces, most of which are from some of my favourite games of all time! You've got a sense of good games (and game music) ;)

Sincerely, I hope you don't get blammed for this. It's really nice stuff—easy to overlook, alas—but a tasty buffet in its essence. I voted 5, as much as my 7.03 votes allow me to vote. Keep it up!

Donkey Kong Country 1½ Donkey Kong Country 1½

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Amen to you!

Gotta say, that's MY kind of flash... being the Donkey Kong (and Rare) fan I am. And if there is something I really like to see around here is a parody of/tribute to Rare's work. Because as you seem to have implied it in the movie, Rare will never be the same again (thank you very much, Mr. Gates :P), and we will never again be able to live a Donkey Kong adventure the way they used to be. Thus, am I the kind of guy that lives in the past? Perhaps. And this type of work makes me feel the sweet nostalgy of times where I could innocently await Rare's next DK masterpiece.

Now, on to the real review. Well, what's even more pleasing over the fact that the movie is based on DK universe, is the fact that it's a pretty dang good one. The scenario's well balanced, and presents the story in a well-timed way. The animation, even though it could have been worked on a little more, is way better than the average NG submission. The soundtrack is fantastic, and the voices could almost be the character's official voices (except for K. Rool, whose voice is definitely deeper in DK64...). The humor was, to me, just fine, being like Rare's style: a few subtle tricks throughout the storyline to make people laugh, without being the foundation for the whole story. All in all, everything feels so authentic (the colors, the atmosphere, the storyline), that your movie deserves all the honors it's getting... and will have a special place in my heart, and probably in many other die hard DK fans' out there too.

Now, I wonder if someone will ever dare do this kind of animation where characters from several Rare games would meet... wouldn't that be nice?

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Drove me crazy!

Now that's some good stuff! It's one of those truly addictive games. I've been playing like there's no tomorrow for days now. Level 28 was my only challenge for the past three days. Well I was glad to succeed, but I guess... I was expecting a bit more! Haha! After all, I've been litterally hallucinating pipes every now and then, watching TV, at the movies, shopping.

It's true it's frustrating you never seem to get the right pieces. Completing a difficult level not only depends on how good or fast you are, it's also a question of luck. It could help if, like in Tetris, you already know what's the next piece that will pop out. Also, after completing the last level, a little candy would've been nice, like the ability to start levels again, but with a slower timer, or getting to choose the pipe pieces... I'd really dig a sick combo with eight kegs feeding the bar at the same time!

No music is absolutely fine by me. Considering all the time that can be spent playing this game, it's just as good to let one's own playlist play in the background, rather than having a repetitive tune going on and on...

Well, I'm off to try to beat my score. Once again, this was a excellent game. Might we expect a sequel?



Galaxy Angel sim date RPG Galaxy Angel sim date RPG

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Yeah! Bug!

Same thing happened to me, with Milefeuille. She says "we've been close for a while, let's go on a date now", and there's nothing else to be done. Too bad, I was really having fun. The game itself is really good, since it has more environments and stuff to do than the past date sims. I'll be playing again, if that bug can be fixed.



Mario Tetris 3 Mario Tetris 3

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Cool, but big bug...

It's a good go. The game is really well done, and the background/music choosing possibilty is great. But please fix this bug. If I make a block go down faster, then every other block stays stuck in speed drop. So I lose and start over again, and the blacks still fall extra fast (and no, my finger is not stuck on the down arrow). Other than that, it's a very good version of Tetris, for people like me... nostalgics of both Tetris and Mario.


DeadPixels responds:

I fixed that bug after the release of number one, iether you have it set to something like level 10, or your computer is f*&king up.. but thanks for the review
