Beautiful job! Congrats on such a terrific animated music video. You can tell it took a lot of work.

Sucks about the stolen thing, but at least as it says in the song, it shouldn't matter about views. Besides, I don't think this one will have any problem getting lots of 5 stars and whatnot. :)

Linda Show: Chick-fil-A Linda Show: Chick-fil-A

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not your best work. Closer to your worst, to be honest. I don't mean that to be antagonistic, it's just this wasn't great. Maybe it was just too preachy. Or maybe not preachy ENOUGH, if that makes sense. Your others have been so over the top that it becomes funny. This wasn't.

Anyway, looking forward to more Taco Man, and hopefully another 5 years before Linda returns again.

Samination responds:

It was typical Linda Show fare. However, out of all her episodes, I think this is my favorite. I also think it was less preachy.

It's tricky to give this a review on Newgrounds. ON NEWGROUNDS, it is fantastic. But that's because it's surrounded by a lot of terrible stuff. I think it's important instead to judge this outside of Newgrounds, in the world of real animation.

In that realm, this was very cute and nicely animated, but it really made no sense. It seemed cute for the sake of cute. The driving motivation of the characters felt shallow and empty, though. It was like some sugary cake covered in icing. Very sweet and nice to look at, but no filling substance. It was animation for animation sake, instead of telling a concrete story with real characters.

That's not to say it was BAD, it's just you need to focus on connecting the characters to actions for a reason, rather than just having actions because it's cute (or you feel like it should be that way). Ollie Johnston once said "YouĆ¢EUTMre not supposed to animate drawings. YouĆ¢EUTMre supposed to animate feelings." I didn't get "feelings" from these characters. When the fox was sad, it was sad because it made little whimpering noises, not because inside it felt sad, if that makes sense.

Your sense of design was quite lovely, and in that regard A+. Once you couple that with compelling characters whose actions are real and true, you'll be set! Keep at it, because you clearly have some great skill to bring to the industry. Much luck!

Quite upsetting

How much time I just wasted 100%-ing this game. Amazing work, not many games refuse to let me go like that. I was pretty sad at the end when I had nothing left to do. I'd say throw in a bonus for completing the game, like being able to play a second time through with a new character (that was exactly the same, but then I'd have wasted twice as many hours.)

An okay start...

Still needs work. You have the basic mechanics down, but it's lacking in sound and depth. Keep at it and you could probably come up with a cool game.

One thing, though: That preloader is total BS. It should NEVER take that long to load something that small. I almost closed it just because that was clearly just a fake preloader with an ad above it. Take that out, it's lame.

Liked it a lot!

I really enjoyed this game. It was fun, and addicting to a degree because I kept falling and shaking my fist at the screen. :)

The "luck" levels kind of ruined some of the fun for me, because there was pretty much no timing involved as they moved so fast. I understand the idea, but it seemed like that could have been better in a later stage or something. I dunno.

Anyway, nice work. If it wasn't just a ball as the object, I'd probably have gone with a 9/10 or 10/10 because it was really fun. So if you make a SJ3, you should make it a little guy or something! That could be really funny.

Keep up the good work!

Very nice

I really liked it, good job. I wish I could play the guitar now... Anyway, it had a nice flow to it and the style was spot on for a Spanish type melody. Only thing I'd change is adding a few more of the high single notes at the end. Like "Ding... ding ding DING ding..." (Obviously it's not something I can type out, lol.)

But yeah, good job.
