Psyche-Out Psyche-Out

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Such potential,

Yet poorly executed. You had good quality in this. The length was good, and you attempted a storyline.

The graphics need improvement, the use of radiants really killed the mood. You should practice a animation a bit more, the stick fights could have been much more interesting and had more length. Voice acting would have been nice, but I understand that it can be difficult to find people willing to work for you. Also, the storyline was quite cliche and has room for improvement, but its just a stick rampage, after all. The whole movie felt like the beginning to an action arcade videogame.

For a first submission, this is really good. I think in a while you should think about redoing it with more detail and less radiants. I hate radiants.

Good Luck.

Nice job.

Excellent job at a wierd anime. It had lots of little details that are important, like symbolism and original settings, original for a romance story. The characters were well devoloped and had emotions and...soul. The anime had a humorous cliff-hanger ending, which fit well with the rest of the story.

Now, there were a few things that I personally would have liked to see done better. The environments looked a little bit out of style with the characters, with the more "Gradient" 3D look. Also, the music didn't have much going for it, rather dull and ordinary. Since the music was emphasized in the anime within a couple of scenes, it felt...out of place and just there to make sure there was some sort of audio going on, almost like elevator music, just there for company.

Overall, its a wonderful submission, with pretty drawings and animations. It could use a bit of work, but it is fun story thats simple and light-hearted, unlike the "Blood and Gore" side of NG. I'd like to see more from you, and if you finished this in a few weeks, then your obviously know what your doing. Keep it up.

Well...

It wasn't bad. It was rather enjoyable. Just, the story was honeslty kind of weak. Ok, so we have a boy and he decides to randomly chase this rabbit. Oddly enough, he chases this rabbit for like a half hour into the dark creepy woods. Surprise, theres a wolf. What does the boy do? Well, chase the rabbit, ofcourse! Turns out that the rabbit is like jesus or something (I know thats not what you were going for but with the bright lights and such it feels that way) and it leads the lost little boy to safety.

Dont get me wrong, though. It was a great submission and I think you should be proud, but next time try to make things make a bit more sense and not so cliche. You certainly have potential, your a good animator, just not a writer...yet.

Keep it up, I hope to see more from you.


element-2 responds:

there was no script. i animated to the music. i get bored when i write out stories and animate to them. i'm not much of an animator. i see and understand how i want something to look. this is more focused on how the picture goes with the music, rather than how you think the character is feeling. so thanks for the reveiw.

Agony: The Portal Agony: The Portal

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Lazy, sloppy, RPG

This is one of the most poorly put together games I have seen in a long time, it amazes me that it even made the front page. As soon as the game loads up you witness the confusing and dull menus, with some duplicate icons representing two completely different menus.

Once you enter the game you are given two nice walls of text, honestly I can't comment on that because it was too much too care for. Then, you see a brief cutscene consisting of basically the one enemy you fight for the first half hour of the game open a box with you locked inside, and you are then set free to THE ENDLESS DESERT. The background never changes, whether you choose to fight in a village or a forest, its always the blank desert with the same one enemy model. Speaking of models, your own model is so terribly lazily put together, the artist clearly didn't give you legs because he didn't want to animate walking! Even the enemy(s) barely has legs.

Now, you finish a level (by standing still and repeatedly pushing U or Space) and are put into a small tutorial on how to level up, equip items, and buy a skeleton helmet with your own US dollars. Wait, what, you want me to PAY...money...to get extra items? Oh boy, now that's a real treat. The author of the game states that he couldn't find a sponsor and decided to put in a "donation" system. Well, maybe if the game wasn't so terrible it would have gotten sponsored, hmm?

Now, this game is not the MOST terrible game in the world, its just a work of laziness. There are plenty other problems I left out as well (One audio track, terrible magic, etc.), I dont have enough energy to mention them. I just wanted anyone who thought that this might be a top notch game that there are many better things to be playing. I hope.

OneExtraGames responds:

Well, clearly you've only played for a very SHORT time.
This game does not have only 1 background but 4.
This game does not only have 1 enemy but 16.
There is not only goblins but also wizzards later in the game.
We don't have enough energy to mention all the features here.

What about SERIOUSLY playing a game before rating it?

Right okay good

I wish I understood it. But damn, did it sound good to my ears.


Danimalz responds:

I'm glad you liked it. Yea, the script is a little cryptic and yes, the volume is low but I am just a budding voice actor, eager to appreciate all that is to be offered. But I digress. Scrapyard.

Very Nice

I always loved that song, he's a true genious, that man. I like the whole song, but teh guitar...and teh synths, basically the whole end didnt go to well for me. So, good intro!
