Honestly, I'm glad you don't make movies.
With no dialogue, no plot, amateur angles, poor and repetitive choreography, hardly any outfit theme, I don't see how people can give this a good rating. Woopdeedoo, you made a live movie go onto Flash! Poorly!
People should be reviewing this as they would a live action movie, or a cartoon Flash with this same action it, and should completely discount the fact that it's live action in flash because this is incredibly easy to do, just not seen very often.
The jittery movement may have seemed cool to you.. I don't know if you actually took hundreds of photos to do that or you edited footage in such a way to get that effect, but it was aggravating and painful to the eyes.
The one girl with long hair was interesting, but seemed like you thought "OH THIS GIRL HAS COOL HAIR LIEK ANIEME I PUT IN MOVEI." No, please. The (assumed) protagonist looked like he just got home from school, not like some "BLADE MASTER."
The fighting scenes were miles away from fluid, the same clashing swords sliding off eachother happened a good number of times, and the slow motion sequences (and sequences such as when the swords cut right over the heads) seemed so absolutely deliberate that whatever effect you might have gained by doing it you lost entirely.
It seemed like the people using the swords were too afraid (with good reason) of the weapons they were wielding to swing them freely enough and be willing to be swung at freely enough to get any sort of realism or quality choreography to happen. This probably could have been remedied with practicing choreography with plastic swords or something first. Very amateur.
I don't know if this is how you picture warriors with swords and melee weapons fighting, but if it is, then be thankful you live in an age where melee weapons are basically obsolete.
It was extremely poor, imo. You shouldn't have bothered even porting it into Flash, or maybe it was worth it to you, but it should have in no way made it to the front page.
EVEN BETTER THAN AGNRYMAN ANTICS AND THAT IS HARD TO BEAT
almost as great as angryman
There wasn't much point to the game, and it got a little repetetive, but it's a relatively great achievement to get anything close to a 3d atmosphere using just flash and its actionscript (this is something that Innocent_Temptation is obviously too ignorant to be aware of). Congrats on the front page, nice debut for Bob.
I think just as good, if not better, than the cursor things. Very cool.
hehe, thanks. too bad this wont get an award or front page, though.
It was wonderful.
