I really love the colors used in this, the pallete is just perfect =).
This is dry humor at its best, take notes.
Not to much of a Fan
I never really liked Egoraptor's stuff in the first place but I could see where the humor was coming from in them, this I just couldn't.
I understand that you were trying to stay with ego's style of art, but you really didn't quite make it up there with it. you can see this really in the character designs then reflected in the backgrounds. You're characters faces weren't really expressive enough and the whole of the motions felt fairly stiff and constrained, the whole basis of ego's humor (at least for me) comes from the incosistant proportions and the over extended facial poses.
And finally it seems pretty conceited to me to think that a non story driven, poor (although intentionally poor) art design, parody of a parody deserves to sit up there with the greats. (I'm basing the assumption that you believe this by the end of your author's comments, and some of the responses to your reviews)
Nice job with the Animation, One Question Though
I really liked some of the animation while some i thought was subpar (stil lbetter then i can do) but i think you might want to re lip-sync the mouths to matchthe song, but thats a bit of work going into all those old fla's might be worth it though.
Ok now for my question, what school are you applying to?
(hope you get in)
the west cheshire college.
it's in england, so i doubt you'd be familiar with how we do things around here...
Couple Bugs ;_;
In the mall part when move down and to the right, two of the enemies bugged out, Couldn't attack them and they couldn't attack me. Lawnmower abillity didn't work, trying to eat them didn't work, thankfully the floor cleaner did and I stayed in it long enough to kill them.
Then on the elevator one of the big charge guys glitched out of the elevator onto the very left edge of my screen where he continued to rise, my little yellow ally decided it was a good idea to try and kill him leaving me with a swarm that ended up killing my remaining 8 lives.
There were some others but those were the 2 potentially game ruining ones I saw so I figured they would be the most important to write about.
I really wish the cutscenes were animated, I didn't find them that interesting or enlightening (or visually appealing) So I just skipped them, I usually enjoy cutscenes too. Also the profanity felt forced, it never really seemed necessary for it to occur, and just for me it detracted from my overall game play experience, especially knowing it caused you difficulty down the line. I think it would have been better without it.
Other than that I thought it was pretty nifty, but I got confused when I could and when I could not eat something so I spent a bit of time trying to much on things that couldn't be munched, especially in the beginning. And I know that's alot of background to draw, but in the future you could spruce it up a little if you're up to the task.
Good game otherwise, animation ran a little slow but Im chopping that up to my computer. Not a bad job indeed.
Its funny how people don't change
Well i reviewed your first game commenting about crappy models and what not, then i commented how you treated your reviewers poorly in your responses. You justified it. I thought the reason was sub par, but that's life. Funny your still being a jerk.
Ok that's out of the way i'll review the game
Its good for what it is a... A rail Shooter
The graphics got a boosste, much to my liking but were still rather cheesy which i completely accept because with something like a (correct if i'm wrong) toon shader puts a hell of alot of file size when uploaded into flash. but argh the noses on the model, your killing me, spend a little more time on them if your making another ok, its funny what draws your eye.
It was like a classic rail shooter, virtua cop time crisis area 51 whatever, it was similiar to all the others including the crappy voice acting ( I know you didn't do it ) that was put in. So no props there it can be a homage and still have its own individual flare.
Ok the sound was crap, i'm sure you know that the voice acting gunshot noise, all crap period.
Wasn't any hardcore blood (completely fine with me) so it was shootiung just not real violent shooting.
Overall big improvement 6.5/10 3.25/5 but congrats with the awards and what-not, i'd just rather you spend a little more time with the less looked at aspects (individuality/sound) which i think are very important.
Good luck with Whatever
I'm a jerk, eh? O RLY?
s' = v
v' = a
a' = JERK
(I was going to do something mean, but I thought it might be too mean and you might cry. See? I'm not a jerk.)

Sorry about that glitch. I'll work on fixing it -- maybe after you lose, the entire map will be revealed so it's easier to pinpoint what caused the glitch. Thanks for the review. :)
