Dude, this is going on my favorites, and I'm gonna check out all the rest of your stuff. Excellent work, very well thought out and clever. Great animation work, sound effects, humor, etc. Nothing negative to criticize at all.
The Penguin Empire Strikes Back
That was adorable. And viewers learned some valuable lessons:
1 - how to determine the volume of a sphere
2 - what happens when you piss off an army of angry penguins
Constructive criticism: the sound was a little grainy and could have used a little cleaning up, particularly for some points during the battle sequence. The snowball impact on the kid's face could have had a better sound to it.
That was excellent -- the pencil style really adds to the dreamlike feel, and the haunting music is perfectly suited to the flash. Great work.
I agree with the last reviewer - the cow eating machine of doom is the scariest part.
Hey man, just wanted to say thank you for using my music in your flash. You made it fit very well at the opening of the first level.
The game is superbly made, and very challenging. Great work.
An O.C.D. dream!
Man, this is intense! Very difficult in that each game is different, as you have to evaluate, decide and act in each game within the frenetic pace of 4 seconds. An obsessive-compulsive person would lose their friggin' mind playing this series of games.
I love it.
My only criticism is that the sound could use a little variety, as the repetitve loop gets somewhat tiring after a few play-throughs. The choice of music fits the pace of the game fine, but would keep with the theme of the game's constant changes if it changed from time to time as well.
Thanks for using my Game Over music again dude -- I'm glad to be associated with your work. You consistently put out really quality stuff and this game is another fine example. You seem to have improved the graphics a bit and the game play is very strategic and enjoyable and smooth.
Very cool, but needs more variety
Very cool and bouncy tune; good use of an odd time without making the piece feel too unusual or offbeat--you made it fit very well and made it feel natural. Nice instrumentation and a good deep mix between the instruments. Solid recording quality. My only critique would be that the piece could use better development; the track feels repetitive at times.
Dude, this is an excellent piece. Great structure, great buildup, and stellar recording quality. Perfect mix of the instruments as well; song tells a story in a way that good songs ought to.
The solo sounds a bit choppy, and does have a few notes that are a little out there, but that's really a nitpick. Felt like I had to work extra hard to find something I didn't like in this piece. This is something I'll be soloing over at home for fun.
Well I thank you sir! This song is very very personal for me for some reason. It really means allot!
That's not me playing the solo though, mad props to the guy who did. Sorry if that detracts from the song for you. The same guy who recorded it for me was the solo guy. Truly a better guitarist than I. He took my little riff and added some scale work and had fun. At first I was pensive about it, but by now I've fallen in love with his solo. It's the best part of the song really... but it's still MY song ;) I'm the one who obsessed over it, and played it over and over, and poured my soul into it!
Sweep picking makes me a happy panda. Very glad to have found your music on the Audio Advertisements thread.
A bit of stylistic criticism: in my opinion, your tone is very trebley; I think your leads and definitely the rhythm guitar would sound smoother with a little more tonal roundedness. Give that neck pickup some more love. :) I know that's more a matter of personal taste, but the lack of bass and mids in the rhythm guitar gives it an abrasive, somewhat old-fashioned sound to my ear. (Could just be remedied with post-recording eqs also.)
That's just a nitpick on an excellent piece. Your stuff is great to listen to and this is no exception. 5 vote, and 10 stars.
Woah, so that thread actually does work. Neat!
I wholeheartedly agree! Some time ago, I used to LINE IN to my computer, giving me a very thin tone. I didn't realize it then, being the novice I was with tone and such. This was when all I knew about mixing was make everything audible and to reassure it wouldn't clip. I might rerecord this one if I feel like it, because I like how I laid it out. Maybe longer! I thought that was a kind of lame outro, haha.
Thanks for the review man!
