Abyssal Abyssal

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Inverts ahoy!

Hey, really enjoyed this. The feeling of being 'adrift' was was done, the sound was excellent and creepy. The pacing was perfect, the shocks were well-timed. A singular idea well carried out, with no time-wasting. The animation was often minimal if I may offer a small criticism, but this mostly didn't matter as it was of course the fantastic creature designs that stole the show. It reminded me of another cartoon on Newgrounds called Larvae, you should check it out. I'm a zoologist, and I've always thought the microscopic world was a fertile resource for creating alien creatures, you capitalised very well on that potential. Well done! Enjoyed the site as well.

Thanks! I always wanted to be a zoologist myself but with no formal education I'm just a hobbyist really :)


Larvae Larvae

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Exellent!

Excellent use of the strengths and limits of flash! Music and editing are very strange and expertly timed. This short creates a bizarre world that I'd love to see fleshed out more. Love the creature design, clearly based on various real animals but nicely twisted and original looking, instead of tired old Alien rip-offs.



Spread your Wings Spread your Wings

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Nice.

Simple but I liked the style. Does what it says on the tin. Keep it up, i'd be interested to see something more ambitious from you. Nice first work.

Lars' Adventure Lars' Adventure

Rated 5 / 5 stars

All right!

This is the only NG platformer I ever played for more than 5 mins. Controls are well-tuned, they feel a bit over-finicky at first but I got used to them, and found that the amount of control is very well-judged. The graphics are cool, and the ridiculously simple and stupid opening is almost saying 'as if we need a reason for this to happen!' Nice. Love the barnyard noises. The music is infectious, reminds me of Frontier Psychiatrist (if you don't remember that, its on youtube).



Ivan Ivan

Rated 4 / 5 stars

All right!

Really like this, its a shooter with a difference! Play it loads but I still can't finish it..its right hard, but i cant tell if its being unfair or not. The looped music is a bit annoying, but i like the speech as the gangsters react to you breaking into their place.
