Fiery Christmas Fiery Christmas

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars November 27, 2012

I think shorts really are your best works. Any chance we'll see another "30 shorts in 30 days" type thing?

The timing on this was well done, and the sound effects were well-placed. Whatever Santa was mumbling at the beginning looked out of place without his mouth moving, though. The ending, with a flaming Santa riding away on his sleigh, doesn't really make much sense (Why didn't he put it out before flying off? Would you drive to the hospital if you were on fire?). But, being a short, it's a small qualm, and most people wouldn't dwell on it long enough for it to matter.

Overall, another good piece. Keep it up!

Thanks. For a long time another 30 shorts has existed in the form of notepad scribbles in my drawer. Short, quick things like this are probably my best shot at releasing personal work more frequently.

I think it would benefit from being a bit more cryptic. It's made very obvious that this is a white/black statement.

As for the animation, it is very well done, but it clashes with the background somewhat. It might look good with a filter overlay type thing.

Overall, very well done.

Very serious lag on some levels. Also horizontal pixels. What the fuck man.

This is great.

After following the thread in the Flash forum, I knew this would amount to something great.

Overall, there is little advice I can offer you. You are clearly a great coder and deserve more than just a Daily 3rd for this.

I know... I submitted it without knowing that Madness Accelerant counted as being submitted on the day I did.

Needs work.

The game was a whole lot of nothing. You basically had to hold down one key for most of the game, except for the odd jump here and there. You need to implement more action.

Also, you should work on the camera angle. The character took up most of the screen, making it difficult to see around it. The animation could use some improvement as well; the walking cycle needs improvement.

You can look here for improving your walking cycle: /67509

You might also try using perspective in the background. It was mostly like a 2-d painting all the way through it. The character often floated above the ground, as well. Overall, this wasn't too bad; the story was alright, and you put at least SOME effort into this.

Also note that this review is NOT abusive. The link is both relevant to the review and inside Newgrounds.

TelaFerrum responds:

Of course it's not abusive, this is clearly constructive and helpful.

Thanks for the input, but so that you know, you didn't tell me anything I didn't know already. I know how to do a proper walk cycle, but I'm really suprised you'd bring that up. Doesn't the bouncy cartoonish running look fun and just work?

It was a quick and fun sort of thing. The backgrounds were simple, but I know they were fun to go through and look at, or at least to some people.

The character was bigger than I realized when I got past the introduction, but I decided to just went with it.

Thinking back on my original intent, maybe I should have made the gameplay a bit better, but with what I have here, I just wanted to let people walk through some fun backgrounds and to bring the ridiculous idea of actually chasing your refridgerator to life.

Thanks for the review.

The rhythm is really lacking in this one. The song sounds like its aimless. Adding in a track in the back that isn't just bass wubs to set the beat would really improve this one.

It's not bad for a MIDI composition, but there's still more that could be done.

The guitar riff is a bit too quiet. It's really overpowered by the bass. I think it would benefit from having the guitar portion a bit louder. 8 of the same notes in a row also seems like a bit much, a bit of variation in there would also really help, even if you just pitch up the third note, I think that would be an improvement.

Overall it's a pretty solid song.

The piano line was kind of annoying, since it stands out so much and doesn't really have a lot of variation.

SMES responds:

Good point! Shall work on something with more interest next time we use an ostinato line. Thanks for the review

A lens flare.

I kid. The asteroid belt must've taken quite a bit of time.
