Well synced, descriptive, and altgether enjoyable
I thought that the way you used the song was brilliant. also, did you really dislike that one teacher THAT much? I mean, wow. The symbolism on this movie was pretty cool too. Great work. Now I should check some other stuff out, too.
Really good, only a thing or 2 for me to mention..
I really liked the animation; you're obviously VERY skilled at using the program. There were only 2 things that I can see as POSSIBLY needing improvement.
1. The relationship: I think that it moved a little fast. If Hikaru and what's-his-face(Can't recall his name at the moment...) had gotten to know each other better, it would have made the fighting later on have more of an impact, since it would be like, "Yeah, that guy's REALLY gonna be ticked at seeing Hikaru kidnapped. Time for him to go kick butt and take names."
2. The translation: I'm not going to criticize you for having the English be imperfect, given that I'm guessing it's not your first language, but maybe you could, for the next episode, hire on someone who DOES speak primarily English to read over the words you use, to see if there's a better way of doing it, or if you might have made a mistake at the time.
All in all, the flash was really good and the storyline has me hooked already, wondering what's going to happen with the two stars. I look forward to seeing how this series develops.
Excellent flash. What do you mean it's not great?
I gotta say... While the flash was short, and lacked a general story(Unless that's a real event in CT, that is, but I don't own the game), it was top-notch work. (I've been watching Flash for a few years now, so I figure I'm a good person to rate things like that). I thought it was kinda comical how that frog dude(Isn't he NAMED Frog?) was just spitting bubbles and then used this huge blast of energy. THAT was cool. Also, I like how Crono did that Matrix-esque flip off the wall. (I'm a fan of Matrix-y stuff like that) All in all, a great job. Hope to see more outta you! (Also... You did this in a week? Wow. )
About the only problem with the game would be the lack of difficulty, especially with how quickly you can level up if you're just running around killing anything you see(Since I'd forgotten some of the hidden items and had to hunt them down, I wound up being level 107 going into the final battle the second time...)
I thought it was a neat touch how over time, things you couldn't fight before were suddenly getting destroyed by your ever-growing magic power. The biggest culprit of this would be when I was fighting the things that were normally only vulnerable to a single spell, and I suddenly started being able to just lay waste to them.
I was a little upset that there wasn't more use for each of the different spells(Gale wasn't even necessary at ALL for the puzzles, as far as I noticed, and you only used the electric and water ones once, plus the fire one didn't have any field effect unless you iced yourself in by accident while firing that spell.)
All in all, though, definitely a good way to spend a while, and I hope to see something like this again!
P.S. Have you played LevelUp? This game somewhat reminded me of that, actually.
While in previous playing of the game it seemed bug-free, I was playing today, trying to get the medals I didn't have yet, and it was sorta super-glitched. It would auto-click all over the place in the opening menus, and when I finally got myself to the actual game, the enemies... They just died. One set after another, they'd vanish and have the next set appear for no real reason... After the tentacle beast did this(Yes, it went that far in) I decided to stop so I could alert you of this.
Great game otherwise though!
That was awesome. I LOVE that song 'Sonic Boom'! Plus tnhe secret thing was really cool.
Good potential, but...
The main component of this song seems to too strongly overpower anything else in it. Maybe lower the volume on that part to let the other pieces of the song shine through? (Or, conversely, increase the volume on the other parts.)
Either way, from the tiny bits I CAN pick out besides the main, overpowered part, it seems like it'd sound pretty good once polished/rebalanced. =)
Very nice. Also, reminds me of something...
The song is quite well made indeed. Also, might you know of this game series known as Touhou Project? It might just be me, being a fan of it myself, but... The title and description you put make me thing of a place in Gensokyo(The land Touhou games/other swtuff takes place in) known as the Bamboo Forest of the Lost, and a mischievous rabbit spirit known as Tewi who can manipulate luck.
Either way, I do like the song on its own, too, not just as potentially-but-likely-not-Touhou-ins pired. As the person below me said, very calming.
Interesting, catchy, but...
About the only thing I can see wrong with it, as you alluded to in your description, is the bass. It feels slightly overpowering. Only slightly, but it's noticable.
All in all, still quite good, IMHO.
