As the song and animation starts off, it seems like it will be a cute and happy little ditty with a moral that's primarily about the things that we share. Then the keys change, and the university comes into play.
As expected, when the music becomes more horrific, the animation quickly follows. The only one with sense enough to try and break the herd mentality is cornered and it's suggested that he has disappeared from the rest of society.
It's actually quite reminiscent of how many people today have a herd mentality, and the ones that are smart enough to figure out what's going on and try to break free are the ones that aren't heard from anymore.
There's so much more that I get out of this, but I fear it would turn into a political rant, so I will stop there. This is a great animation with a great song and a great moral when put together.
Adorable in every way.
That is exactly how I would expect Sportacus to dance to DDR.
Music - 10/10 Not too loud, and not too soft. Very upbeat and peppy. It made me want to dance myself.
Humor - 10/10 Several of the characters having their own battles/love affairs/style of dancing gave a great quality of humor.
Animation - 10/10 The animation was pretty smooth, and I quite like that style of drawing, it went perfectly with the song.
Length - 10/10 Not too long, and not too short, it kept me entertained while not leaving me bored.
100% (First 100% by the way.)
Music - 10/10 It came and went at just the right times, giving the flash as a whole an air of quality.
Voice Acting - 10/10 This is voice acting at its finest. A completely mundane and quite boring set of words have turned into hilarity of one of the highest degrees, and it's in part to the wonderful voice acting.
Humor - 9/10 The emphasis of the misspelled words in the voice created a higher level of funny, rather than if they had been read as the rest of the words.
Animation - 9/10 I am not usually too keen on text as the only form of animation, as it's usually a lazy way out, but the way the words were put together and the falling/pushing/etc. forms of animation to the text showed that there was thought put into this.
Length - 10/10 The length of this was perfect. Not too short that it leaves me asking questions, yet not too long that I find myself bored.
I had promised myself that I would not write a review until I had finished the game, but seeing as I have been playing for days, only completed 55 fields and opened 57, and that still is barely 1/3 of all of the fields, that seems illogical to do... Plus, I have so much I want to comment on, that waiting for a while may cause me to forget what I want to say, I have a horrid memory like that.
The field selection; I LOVE that you can (for the most part) choose whichever way you would rather go.
Graphics; Perfect in every way.
Music; good to have around, barely noticeable when you're working hard to win, and overall, well suited for the game.
Gameplay; super easy, unless you use the keyboard shortcuts, then confusing as poo.
Game Length; Super long, but in such a style that it's perfectly acceptable, and does not get boring.
Sound Effects; Amusing for the most part, nothing that's annoying.
As a whole; *insert expletive here* AWESOME!
This should be a mandatory game that everyone who even checks out a tower defense game must play at least 1 round of. I absolutely LOVE it!
Very good game.
This is a pretty awesome game, and I must admit, I had to restart it time and time again before I got the hang of it and figured out what I needed to do. The animation is smooth, and the coloring is bright, but not so bright it blinds me.
Once I figured out how to move from cloud to cloud, and planet to planet, I was spending much more time exploring the planets than I was trying to solve their issues. The simplicity of the art makes it so very beautiful, and easy to get sidetracked from the ultimate goals of solving each planet's puzzle.
This game has definite replay value, as I find myself re-playing it at least once every 2 weeks or so. The music is so soothing, and it's actually a good game to play at night while I wind down and get ready for bed.
I definitely recommend that anyone having trouble figuring it out, just take a short break, as you said, and come back to it later when they're more able to think. After you can solve all of the puzzles a few times, it becomes a relaxing story that you have some interaction with, that has wonderful music.
Music - 10/10 It fit with the theme, wasn't corny like many other games that try to have such music. It wasn't too loud, and it didn't get repetitive.
Sound Effects - 10/10 Not so loud they overpower the music, and not so soft you can barely hear them. They were spaced out enough that it made them fun to hear, and not annoying.
Fun I had while playing - 10/10 At first the game is very easy, and the first thought I had was, "This is going to be a breeze", but it definitely got harder in the later levels, and that made me happy.
Animation - 10/10 Everything was smooth, well drawn, and adorable. I had expected the animation to get choppy the first time he got squished super small, but it didn't, and that was pleasantly surprising.
Length - 10/10 It was perfect in length as far as flash games go. It wasn't so short it left me wondering, "Is that all?", and it wasn't so long that I got bored. It was absolutely perfect.
Gameplay - 10/10 There was no lagging on my computer at all, which is saying something because almost everything lags on my computer. The simple point and click is very easy, and there's barely any use of the arrow keys, except with certain power ups, which makes things easy to remember. The last level, aside from the last bonus level, was a bit hard, but not impossible, and I love that hardness about it.
