certainly is a parody that's for sure.
though i wouldn't put it passed "art" for that type of stuff to look like that.
this really has potential, the music is fitting, audio balancing is consistent between characters and background and i quite like the art style, not too often you see people use coloured outlines.
as for the episode itself, it's just a set up episode with teaming up the main characters and a bit of exposition about ones status. important for world building and as part of a series is great, but alone is a bit boring (main reason i'm giving this particular episode a 3 instead of a 4).
one last thing is the animation, i like it for the most part, just some bits are inconstant such as the cape doesn't blow while walking, and when the hair is moving the side of the cape is being blown but not the hood. not bad but it's a little distracting.
with all that said i'm looking forward to the next part to see how these characters get developed.
Thanks for the review look forward to thr next ep
very nice animation, plays very closely to the original scrapped intro but as long as something is well made who cares about creativity, especially in tributes to things.
i like the skecthy style of the backgrounds and characters, the only improvement i can think of is a bit of shading, a little contrast in lighting can go a long way, and many drawing programs have easy ways to gradient, though taking the time to do that in an already long activity which is animation can be mundane/strenuous so it's understandable why most people don't take the time to do that.
anyway keep up the good work.
quite fun game, the concept is very imaginative and the music is very fitting.
though the game is very basic as is, which isn't a problem but it does hurt replay value combined with other things like the respawn system being way too forgiving and the boss being very exploitable (stand to the top wall side corner of the protective wall, when rock is thrown move to the opposite corner of the socket) the game is so short and easy it doesn't have anything else to discover, not even RNG to mess around with.
again it's a very competent game, fun for one playthrough but not much else due to a lack of content and punishment for death.
amazing execution of a simple premise.
the logic puzzles were a lot of fun and some being challenging, people saying the mountain puzzle doesn't work but you have to jump at it, you can't push something you're standing on.
though the border level is annoying noting there's no walls under the stage stopping you from falling off when you go far even though you have to go out of visibility to complete it and the waiting one is just boring.
the music and asthetics are top notch, the story (not very far, not much time) has caught my attention, i'm really curious about those spores origin and the design is great for the most part.
i say for the most part because of the control, it's very solid for the most part and is responsive, it's just whenever you turn you move backwards a bit meaning you can't readjust on a ledge to avoid falling off and in the case of the second boss i kept on walking into spores by doing small adjustments that would work in most games, and of course also falling off the platforms since they're 3 wide and the spores can spawn in the middle and to the sides of them.
i'd also like to mention the hitpoints since 1 hit kills at the beginning of a game can be very cheap, but with the saves which can be a bit far apart leading to a bit too much backtracking the layout of the obsticals are fair and you get plenty of time to react to them coming up so by the time you do start seeing lasers and spikes being mixed you'll have an extra hit at that point (or right after as a reward).
overall from what i've seen thus far it's a solid metroidvania that's quite fun to play.
nice little preview of your different voices.
especially like J2, the audio effects definitely allow them to sound robotic but still have an ounce of emotion.
Thanks! J-2's voice is kind of fun to do.
love the cyber feel of this song, the quite spots near the end i don't like too much and the main looping melody is quite short but as something used intandem with say a game boss it really is a great listen.
thanks for your feedback!
simply amazing, plus it reminds me of my favourite segments of my favourite flash game.
