Pencilmation #8 Pencilmation #8

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Nicely done but...

...I found it rather boring compared to the other episodes.

The thing I have always liked about your series is the creativity of "The Pencil" and how it interacts with the world it has created. Other than the glass casing there really wasn't any interaction with the characters this time around, basically making it just like any other cartoon. Don't get me wrong, it was very well done and very professional, it just seemed to be missing what makes 'Pencilmation' so special...The Pencil.

Overall, fantastic artwork and audio, it just seemed to be missing the charm of your other episodes.

Keep it up!



DARE DARE

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was very well done but...

I don't understand why the religious aspect had to be pushed. Why wouldn't helping out those who need it and pushing through is mothers death through his works be sufficient? I don't understand why this flash had to depict only christians as capable of such actions. His mother died and he converted to Christianity? How is that an empowering message? He was torn down and broken and to fix that he found religion...I don't see how that fits in with the overall message of the movie.

In general it was a very good flash, one of the nicest I've seen. I really liked it up until you forced religion down our throats...I don't really see why that was necessary at all.

I love Cursive...

...and now I love you too.

I was expecting yet another crappy clock day video but noticed the artist while the flash was loading. I instantly became rather angry that you would not only pollute newgrounds with yet more crap but use my favorite band as it's soundtrack!

Thankfully this didn't happen. =)

This flash was actually done very well. Unique design and great attention to detail. Also, the subtitles were very handy; I already knew the lyrics but for those who don't it will help with your symbolism.

Very nice flash and I will take a look at your other works as soon as I'm done blamming all the clock day videos. =)


Twist responds:

Well, make sure at the very least you watch every clock movie, otherwise you'll probably miss some real gems.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Very basic and run of the mill avoider game...

The graphics leave much to be desired and the gameplay never grows in difficulty. No sound effects really drag down a game as the audio is 50% of the users experience. You could've easily spent a a few more days adding a little bit more to the game but like a typically programmer (myself included) you probably just wanted to get it out there as soon as possible. This feeling is normal but you MUST RESTRAIN YOURSELF! ;)

The game is reliable and I encountered no bugs so a plus on that but overall it's just lacking content. I have only submitted one game to newgrounds, as it was my very first flash game (first game in general actually, as3 is the first programming language I've ever taught myself) and it just so happens to be an avoider game as well. Perhaps give it a go? =)

Overall I think a little more effort could have gone a long way and I look forward to your future releases.

Good game but rather boring...

Quite a few games like this have been popping up lately. It's fun and all but loses any thrill it may have rather quickly. Good graphics, annoying music and mundane gameplay. I would love to see a spiced up sequel or another game on the same engine, just faster paced.

Keep it up!
