Short and sweet!
I, too, liked the transition from sprites to hand-drawn. The original 8-bit music is also a nice touch. I liked the jokes used in this flash but most of all, I really like the animation for the hand-drawn parts. It just has a very nice sense of fluidness.
A good flash based on Goemon and Ebisumaru
Well first, I have to say thanks for adding voices to the movie and making the game easier for some.
Secondly, I would like to say that I would suggest adding some reason behind the two antagonist for wanting to "get" Goemon and Ebisumaru even if it's just a simple reason. Although, this might have just been made for fun and then again, we don't really know why Ebisumaru acts the way he does so why bother?
But the thing I was mainly kind of surprised was the game where you had to shoot the enemy while trying to run. I wasn't expecting it and I actually kind of died two or three times before taking my time and finally defeating the "boss".
A pixelated tribute PaRappa fans might like!
The sprite representation of the characters of the game are really spot on and good. I also liked how you did the "fold" or tilt FXs on both the characters and the background. I also liked how the audio was super clear.
The only thing I might recommended is adding a copyright notice or something that acknowledges the original creators, the game and the song at the end of the video.
But other then that, it was nice.
Seeing as how this was a solo project, you did a great job on creating this flash all on your own.
You also did a good job on choosing which music to use for this movie (it must of been hard since there are thousands of songs to choose from on NG).
I especially like how you decided to title this "Extinct" even thou the meaning of the title doesn't show up until th-...well you know what I mean *avoiding spoilers*. There's also the use of using a common animal and showing it being extinct a thousand years later (which is probably unthinkable today but who knows?).
you really got my point! :)
Decent platforming game
The only thing I believe you should fix is the whole "sliding" effect the main sprite has to go through. Other then that, it's a pretty decent game that's kind of fun.
Created to feel like a dream?
If this was created to have a dream-esq feel to it, you have succeed...because I didn't know what was going on. A golem falls in a LotR style, then turns into the typical bishounen character, face planting on clouds, etc.
The animation is at least better than this other flash I've seen before this recently.
Well the animation is ok, disregarding the anatomy errors, and the music is...ok.
However, all the flash is is just characters dancing.
The only thing I have to say is that the Latin music is kind of a nice touch and the girls are nice *shrugs*. Other then that, stuff like this isn't for Newgrounds since it's pretty much just a slideshow.
Even thou it was short, I'll give you credit for the fact that you animated this FMF (Frame by Frame).
It's a decent video but the audio is kind of bad. I would have said something about this being on Youtube but it didn't exist 'till 2004/2005.
