What can I say about this?
In 2004 I watched "Smile!". I was only discovering the part of Newgrounds that held real pieces of art. It was a long time ago, but that animation had enough effect on me that as soon as I started watching Lucky Day Forever I realized it was you again. I was thrilled with expectation but the movie proved to go far beyond anything I could expect. So... what can I say about this? No words would make it justice, so I won't try to describe the experience of watching it. All I can say is thank you, for showing me the potential of the flash world and, 8 years later, showing me how far can it go and evolve.
The best flash movie ever produced.
This should be the flash with most views and highest ponctuation on Newgrounds.
I understand that around here the stuff that draws the attention is the silly comedies filled with random humour and violence. Don't get me wrong, I love the comedies, I'm a huge fan of Egoraptor, HappyHarry, JohnnyUtah and all the other guys, but no other flash has this level on composition and production.
Brackenwood series has the quality of something animated by Disney, Pixar or other major company. It is extremely professional in every techincal aspect.
It has the most fluent animation you can find. Evry frame is super produced, the backgrounds are so complete and beautiful, even in the scenes that only appears for a couple of seconds. The colors used are ideal for each moment, setting the atmosphere just right. It will never feel out of place. The lightning and shadowing is so much worked that I keep thinking how much effort Adam puts in every drawing. From Bitey's hair to the grass, you can tell that everything got Adam's attention to the max.
The soundtrack is the most incredible thing to be listened on a flash movie. Even big compositors are part of it. It is just perfect in every aspect.
Technical stuff aside, the story is so compelling, you create empathy for the characters. Bitey has such strong personality even without speaking, so is every other creature of Brackenwood.
The storytelling is close to a poem or a painting. It has a extremely high artistic value.
The world of Brackenwood is so rich and so much full of potential that sometimes I feel there's no justice in being only a flash file. This belongs in a big screen, I'm deadly serious.
I'm looking forward to the rest of the series and some new merchandise.
I expect only the best and wish the greatest of luck to Adam Phillip's projects.
He's a great artist of many levels, a visionary in the flash world that I'm sure will go much beyond in the future.
And I keep on being a huge and mesmerized fan.
I never played Zelda, but
this is pretty nice, even that I haven' played Zelda and might have lost the joke, pun, reference or whatever
But I can still revirew based on everything else and it was good. The sound is really funny and addicting, the animation is smooth and sincronized, the drawing and coloring are very good.
I'll give it a nine and 5/5. It still is short and misses a little more scenes to give some variation.
Nica job, keep it up
I think people underestimate this game
I've seen a great game with a great story telling.
The graphics were superb for a pixel animated game. The backgrounds are just really well worked. The animation is perfect, just look the clouds animation on the last battle. Sounds? Great, of course. A super intense soundtrack. The dubbing was really professional.
But really, all technic terms aside, it has soul. The quick time event was exhilarating. And when my brother died I was really sad and touched for he fought by my side.
If your a God of War fan, please, give this a try. It's a great adaptation and I'm sure Kratos would be proud of.
Spectacular game. Pretty close to perfection!
I'm a huge fan of your work, since Dead Babies. I love your style and the themes you use on your games. Always very deep, obscure, intelligent, different, original, yet with a great innocence. The lonely, quietute and peacefull feeling in most of your works, are always touching and drags us into the unique atmosphere of the game.
Aether, Dead Babies, Host, The C Word, Coil, Meat Boy and my favourite, Gish: They're all awesome works. Very artistic and with a very strong mood.
The thing I most enjoy is definetely the incredible artwork.
And it's not different with Spewer. That little pinkish ball with smooth lines and a lot of carisma, sure makes me smile.
The background work is really astonishing. Everything is really detailed and well worked.
The music and the sound effects were simply amazing, as usual. It composed the atmosphere and blend in with the character.
Very good programming. The moves are smooth and there's pratically no bugs or glitches. Everything seems to respond well.
The graphics were the high point. As an artist (or trying to be one), the drawing concepts are always what steals my attention. Everything was so well drawn, as usual again. Love the concept of Spewer. It's so simple, yet so attratctive.
The different bodies element is just incredible. It's something that really got me hypnotized into the game. And the fact that even the expressions change, not just the colours, it's great.
I love how the withe one reminds of Aether. The red and the yellow ones were also great, but my far favourite is of course, the black one, resembing Gish.
The medals are really cool. I like them all, specially 'Airhead', and of course 'Gishy'...
This was a great game that I enjoyed so much playing it. It didn't get boring like most flash games. I enjoyed every chapter as much as I could.
It's definetely one of the best games I ever ´played on the whole internet.
I simpy can't find any flaws.
A sequel would be more than welcome. Maybe with some unlockables or extra content. You could explore even more the body changing scheme.
Anyway: I loved this game, loved the character and loved the whole concept and the idea. It's something that really brings me inspiration. Congratulations for all your excellent works, and for this one, that is sure one of my top favourites now. Thanks for the minutes of fun.
Keep your excellent work. Keep renovating your styles, still always using the same base, that makes everything so familiar. Good luck all your future projects. I'll keep an eye on uptades.
10/10 and 5/5 with no doubt.
It's was a good game
As for the review bellow me:
Please, keep in mind that this was made in 2006. Lot has changed since then.
It's a very good game, for the time it was created.
The song at first is nice, but can get annoying
The screen seems to be small for so many zombies
The AK concept is really ugly
The moving mouse it's original, but it can be a pain in the ass
The animation was good. Controls flow with naturallity
It was all ok overral
And as we can see, both Tom and MindChamber got alot better. Time is essencial for perfection
Keep it up guys
I like the feeling on this piece
The flesh on the lips does its work well. Looks soft and adds to the creepyness of the piercing metal. The teeth on the side of the jaw looks really cool.
I normally don't like asian horror style and this has a bit of it, but, as it is so surreal and distorted looks nice anyway, without looking cliche.
Nice stuff. d('-'d)
yeah i'm not a fan of asian porn either.
