Why, this is the happiest murder I've ever seen. Even the dead body was dancing with joy. XD
Seriously though, this is the 3rd adaptation of Cupcakes I've seen here on Newgrounds. I understand that it's the quintessential screwed up MLP fic, but can't we throw in an adaptation of Parchments or something into the mix? XD
Anyway, the animation, aside from it's evil inspiration, was pretty good over all. Sometimes the characters moved like they were paper cutout puppets, but most of the time it was good. I also read the Mystery Pinkie-Pie Theater 3000 (look it up, it's funny) riff on Cupcakes, so I know the story, and for someone who hasn't read it, you did a pretty good job of capturing it in all of it's horrific, blood caked glory. But I'm taking points off for not showing Applebloom wearing Diamond Tiara as a cooking apron and cutting up Silver Spoon at the end.
Good job, or at least as good a job as can be done with an adaptation of Cupcakes, but maybe for your next animation you could do something that doesn't make people cry out in teary eyed horror. XD
Cute little flash, with a song that I simply cannot stop listening to. I thought the :the Game: style ponies in the background were a funny touch, and the spinning Pinkie-Pie reminds me a lot of how Pinkie-Pie is in the show. I especially love how bewildered the human looks as Pinkie-Pie circles him, like he's been shocked into apathy about the situation. Over all, a cute little flash for a quickie, and it turned me to a great song, so good job. ^^
Oh, and to those who demand Fluttershy, she IS in the flash. She's the one singing the song. >:3
I find it rather interesting that nobody openly contested my review of TOME: Hackers, in which I counter pointed many of the tired, poorly justified complaints people had, which can mean one of three things:
1: None of the negative reviewers after my post actually read my post, which is sad because it shows that they don't even bother to read other posts to see if the same crappy complaints have been previously brought up.
2: None of the negative reviewers after my post could come up with anything to counter my points, which is sad because it means that they don't think their complaints through before vomiting them all over the internet.
3: None of the negative reviewers after my post cared about what I had to say enough to counter it, which is sad because it means that they have absolutely no right to bitch and moan about how Kirbopher "doesn't listen to criticisms".
So, if you're curious about what I have to say about the criticisms about this flash, then please go read my review of TOME: Hackers, because all the criticisms given here are the same. Of course, any negative reviewers are welcome to counter-counter point my arguments, so long as you're able to do so in a way that doesn't just devolve into a rant accusing me of being a stupid pre-teen who doesn't know anything about art.
Moving on to the flash at hand, I still found this one just as enjoyable as the first one, more so in fact. It didn't feel quite as rush paced as the first, and the humor was enjoyable in this one too. I also liked how you redid the battle grid into a more defined area with boundaries, rather than the first episode where it seemed to be just an infinite plane area. It seems more fitting this way. Keep up the good work, and don't let the negative reviews that keep rehashing the same tired old complaints get to you.
On a final note, to all of the actually good flash animators out there who feel the need to flame bomb Kirbophers animations for not adequately explained reason, I'm here to say to you that you don't get to animate things the way you want to anymore because you aren't as good as Hayao Miyazaki. If you don't get the irony in the statement I've just made, which I really hope you do, but if you don't, then you should sit down and think very hard about what you're doing.
I got all 3 endings, story of the blanks ending was scary. I do think there should be an optional ending if you lose to the dragon too, so that we'll have the happy ending (super filly), the funny ending (muffin ending), the scary ending (blank flank ending), and the sad ending (lose to the dragon ending). But other than that, I can't really find any fault with the game, it was a cute little game, and rarity's secret message was funny. ^^
The game was pretty fun, although it was frustrating until I learned that all pipes on a connecting side had to match in order to pass through. I also encountered the same little error that filcool666 encountered, in where I dropped down into the room that looks like this:
And there was no way out. For future reference, this is the second to last room you enter, and you cannot enter it any sooner, or you can't complete the game because there's no way out.
If I were to make a suggestion for improvement, I'd say include a little note in the game itself explaining the pipe matching mechanic, and perhaps put some exit platforms into the room I mentioned above so that people don't get stuck. :)
I just love the turret section, but there are a few missing. Also, the one you labeled ??? is the turret saying "Owowowow" I think. :3
This is great.
I love the whole feel of it, and I love how long it is, 117. It's a perfect tribute to Halo 3.
It is a song of new beginning, one with a foreground of happiness, but a background of loss. It is happy, but remorseful at the same time, and is a true work or art. You sure know how to compose complex scores. I applaud you.
loool complex scores? thank you for your appreciation. Glory to God.
andman i dont know what im doing!
This is a beautiful piece of music not so easily found. It has a rare ability to simultaneously invoke feelings of happiness and sadness, a little bit of regret for anything wrong you have done to the world, but also hope for a better future. It is a very strange combination of feelings, but one that I like very much. I hope that all of your music can create such a blend of powerful emotions in me, and look forward to all of them.
lol. cool how you notice happy and sadness at the same time. contrasts are always fun.
thank you for your appreciation. Glory to God.
