What I believe is the greatest strength of this flash, is the fact that you can convey such a message without even using any words. That is what makes it stand out amongst all the other great flashes.
It was dark, the effects were cool and the music went along very well with it.
But the drawings and animations were not very good. Honestly if I could choose between a flash with many special effects versus one that has a bit more time spent in animating/good drawings I would go for the latter. I can not feel quite as emotionally effected by something as stunning as murder when the animation is too simplistic and the colors very bright.
Go for a darker color scheme next time you do a dark story, give me the mood lighting and scenery that will draw me in.
And I ahve nothing against anime style drawings but triangle heads are a bit much. x_x
Yeah I havent messed with much color stuff yet. The animation I found to be very difficult because frame by frame for full bodies is hard.
Thanks for the review!
I like your style
With both of your flashes I have seen an appealing drawing style and just enough humor to make me smile. Of course the major complaint here (despite the whole description n all) will be "it is short, there isn't really any content" but I'm sure you are well aware of that when you make something that is only a few seconds long. Either way I express my enjoyment to you.
Haha, thanks! Yeah, there isn't much content because It was originally a PART of something.
I pretty much just thought that I better submit it since I only had one submission.
great work as always
And of course it is unfortunate it is a demo, but hey, it's completely justified. Either way you are obviously really skilled in flash and it's good to see someone in the adult flash zone who is talented.
The only thing that kind of bothers me in this one is the fact that Naota is under 18. That just disturbs me a little bit...
Fun but tricky
I found myself playing this about 15 times because I was interested to see what lay at the end of the graveyard, or what other objects would pop up as I progressed. The controls are very simple and easy to get used to, but I found that no matter how many times I played I still found it always far easier to fail than succeed. It is good to have a degree of difficulty so it isn't childishly easy, but I could never get past the coffins in all the times I played, and having to start over at the beginning and still being able to die there just as easily did get a little frustrating.
The game itself isn't badly designed, it has clean graphics sort of nice moody sound and doesn't feel too glitchy. In the end I thought it was fun, but I was a bit sad I could not progress without frustration.
not the newest concept
It's fun, for a little while, but it has a lot of little things that make isfar less entertaining than it could be.
For one thing, some of the seals take a crazy amount of time to get back to the bear, I noticed this the most with the larger brown ones. I would catch one and it would take until the last couple seconds for it to get back so I could shoot again, so of course I would then lose.
Also it just doesn't do well capturing my interest, the seals don't move and the game doesn't become any more "interesting" besides the addition of more seals.
It is well designed and laid out, but it just isn't really amazing
