Well, you got lucky, seems like people apreciate this turd.
You may be a Mortal Kombat fan but this was shittier than shit.
You play the song
You put some subtitles around the "sound effects"
You display sprites on the screen that a/ aren't animated by you b/ don't do buck shit
You think you're a MK god for *not* animating.
I'll grant you that objects appeared on screen well timed and that Shao Khan's voice was well timed with the music (hence the 2 points for music) but apart from that, you prove to be pretty lame.
And before you point out the obvious "well you haven't made a flash", I pretty well believe you haven't written a tellable story, made a decent song, game or film in your own life and have nevertheless dissed a fair few yourself.
So go do your homework, Mr "I am a TRUE Mortal Kombat fan."
PS - watching your own film over and over proves your self-infatuation. You'd better avoid mentioning that in future.
A good, save for...
I liked the sync of action with music, well done.
A couple of notes however: fading the music out for the thunder was atmosphere breaking - you should have just left the music... or, you could have strategically cut on a beat to re-introduce the music on the arrival of the "power chording" of the chorus. Fade just doesn't work. And the pause was, well, a tad bit longish...
The other thing is that your sprites were... all the originals. Play around with them. Do something with them we don't expect....
Congrats on your 3rd place, ace!
Taking these comments into account, and probably the numerous others that may have come through, I'll be expecting you in the all time top 25 with your next flash..!
Some good animation work there and ideas.
I feel I'm being a bit harsh but the dialogues are somewhat... Cheesy... Hammed up, mostly the "intro" in the 3rd.
Don't get me wrong, it's a very enjoyable piece of work (well, the ensemble actually), I just find it lacked subtlety at points ("you will pay"/"your reign  is ended" have always sounded rather trite to my ears...)
The second half of this one is alot better, though. Kudos.
And keep it coming!
I use Win XP and in FireFox and in IE i do not see the menu text. It does not hinder the game play, but it does make you hunt around for where-do-you-click-for-what?
Correct that and add a bit more shine to the objects and it will be a great game!
Update your flash player. ;)
So damn hard
I completed level 1 by sheer.... randomness... didn't reall expect to get anywhere....
Another time I hit somewhere near the base of the flame thrower thingy and I just stayed just under the flame throwing machine as if I was flying in mid box... and even the 'K' key didn't explode me.... bug to be fixed.
Otherwise nice, but It's a bit too hard... Levels should really go progressively or it hinders the player's ambition to go any furhter... thus harming the game's play-life or however they call it I forgt the word......
A same style game is in our Student Union assoc games room... just as challengin... (as the easy mode...) but the innocent guy sometimes costs me lives when i shoot him, sometimes costs me lives when i don't...
Nice one. Simple - but it actually works!!
