My Only Complaint
The animation is top notch and the art is very stylised and the script isnt too bad either but my main issue and this is actually an issue with many of your other flashes are the excessive use of swear words. I have nothing against them and alot of them time you dont notice it much except for parts here and there but i feel like you abuse them a little too much. There are other things you could put in place of them that would carry the same impact. In this animation it doesnt get awkward till after pikachu mentions being fed puffins and when he starts swearing at venasaur which at that point im just feeling like the animation has slowed down and you've run out of ideas script wise and are just looking to put words in for filler which shouldnt be necessary. Your a great flash artist and voice actor and i love all of your stuff despite these short comings but i think you should lose some of the cuss words. Not all of them, just tone it down a little thats all.
This episode was amazing and out of all of them was no doubt my favorite. That simple question all of sudden makes this series feel as though it has somesort of purpose. It isnt just mindlessly making jokes or making a reference to pop culture all for the sake of a small laugh. I like the direction this series is taking. I just hope the end isnt one thats predictable or if it is, its thought out and is done in a way that doesnt insult the audience that have followed this series. Anyway, enough about that. Particular things i want to compliment...
Art/Animation: A kudos to the animator and artists, the one thing that really got my attention about the animation is when mickey simply goes to turn his head towards June. It was done REALLY smoothly and was one of the things that stood out to me. The detail put into some things like the gun was also something i appreciated.
Voice Actors: The voice acting for this series is amazing. The scene that really shined in my mind was when Mickey grabbed the gun and started explaining its origions and events related to it. I dont know if the actor was reading the script as he did that monologue or if he memorised it but either way it felt perfectly believable and i felt convinced that it was appropriate for Mickey to speak like that. He sounded really just cold and analytical rather then just the usual angry and sarcastic emotions he typically wears. It didnt sound at all forced so a gold star for the actor and same to the writer that wrote this episode.
You all did a great job and again this episode was awesome. I like the drama thats happening. So an 8/10 for the review and a 5/5 for the score of this episode.
The animation was great! It was fluid, colorful, and at the end the whole time i was just thinking, "ha, i get it cause red bull gives you wings..." and then theres the twist and im just like, "oh shit...." i had no idea red bull could kill you so the flash was not only entertaining but somewhat informative as well.
The one thing that bugged me about the flash though, and its something thats actually pretty minor, is that when hes sliding down the rails when he hits that ball part at the end of the rail(cant think of the name sorry) i didnt really feel his pain and i think thats due to the lack of like...a good crushing sound effect. Instead everything just goes silent and you hear him yelp and you lose the sort of impact that particular joke is supposed to have. It just felt as though some audio was missing there.
other then that, fantastic job!
My main problem with this game are the controls. Its my belief for any game that the arrows at which you use to move your characters should NEVER ever be used to make your character jump. You have 100 other keys on the keyboard that a player can press to make the character jump. Why would you choose the up button of all buttons you have available to you to make your character jump? it doesnt make sense and it makes the game needessly difficult in ways no game should ever be.
Anyway, now the game itself is actually pretty good. Its fun, its pretty entertaining and from the little bit ive played was pretty fair on the difficulty. The graphics looked pretty clean and were smooth and the music worked for it really well. So i'll give it an 8 overall.
Just keep the controls in mind for future projects to come. Good work!
