I almost closed it when I was looking at the stickman for about 20 seconds, but then it actually started. And some of the shots showed a lot of potential, or maybe I'm just a sucker for action sequences. It was pretty damn random - if you combined action sequences, crazy special effects, some of that random, and synced it up to music like you did here, with all the effort and emotion you can muster, I see a top 10.
I can foresee this evolving into a large "gadget" game with a whole bunch of musical options, and the like. It could be the ultimate combo of a soundboard, the Strawberry, and interactivity! Good job!
Haha, maybe yes, maybe no. I don't even have plans for the next ep, so dont rush me, eh?
About par for you.
The problem mainly resides in the fact that it's so short! The animation is a bit choppy, but has your distinctive ability to look good, and the music suits the whole thing quite well. Still, I was hoping for a good fight, and not much really happened...I have a 56k modem, but for a minute of solid blasting and fighting, I coulda waited another 10-20 minutes download time (1MB-2MB approx.) Keep up the good work, but add more content!
Push it further
You seem to have at least a decent grasp of animation timing and acting. You also mentioned exaggeration, but I hardly saw it. Push. It. Further. Based on what I saw, and the addition of SUPER exaggeration, I foresee nothing but great things.
I'm voting high.
But the real problem this lacks is very much originality. I voted high, but the score was 1.90 when I did, so chances are, lots of people don't like it. Why? sure, you must have spent a long time programming (yep. I've had quite a few programming headaches myself), but, so have many other people. Each and every other person who has submitted a snake/worm game to NG. The controls were smooth, and it was good, but, you need a reason for people's to play yours instead. Do what lots of other games are doing; have secrets! Have a passwords screen, and, say, if someone gets 500 points, or something, they get a password that changes the background, or what the worm looks like, or whatnot. Have cool stuff that can only be unlocked if they play the game! This is the equalizer; a small game with secrets >= same game with better graphics sound and file size with no secrets.
But very uneven movement. He falls too quickly, and overall, I coulda done much better in the game if he hadn't kept going up quickly, being stopped at the top, and falling really quickly into an enemy. We need slower movement!
