I can't say that it was all excellently planned out. Sometimes it felt like some moments just deserved a WTF? because they really did not fit it.
Besides the throngs of comments about the conformity/mask bs I just wanted to point out that inside he was different. The monsters used to be just like him before until they were touched by someone that helped them unleash their true self. So in essence it about finding yourself through the help of someone else and then later on helping someone else find themselves. Finding yourself could mean understanding yourself or even unlocking some skill that you thought you never had but in fact you do but have been hiding it for the sake of fitting in with the people around you.
You did such a good job with the camera angles and the drawing/shading but...god it seemed that the animation of the characters was done by someone who just learned out to tween yesterday.... I sorta liked the plot but as a personal preference I like it more when time is spent building the characters more so I can relate to them, even if that doesn't include any spiffy animation.
Well, if that is a recurring dream then you should look at your life and see if you can put any meanings to the things in the dream since recurring dreams usually describe your life.
I probably have about 2 or 3 recurring dreams that I see perhaps once every two or three years since I was 10 (19 now :P) Mine are very complicated however and try as I might I never remember them until I seeing them again. Also whenever they occur again some parts are left out and new parts are added in probably to go along with the changes that have occurred in the past 2-3 years. They always involve some sort of whacked out quest-plot thingy. They always have a bunch of female characters. They always have a dark tone. However, I still like them. I remember when I remember one for a couple of minutes after waking up and I could point to everything in the dream that could match up with my life, then I forgot everything. Oh well, I still think that this is a pretty simplistic dream. You could probably assign meaning to this yourself, you don't need our help, but you most likely want to make a flash more than get an explanation for the dream.
I actually bought the full version..
I kept trying to find a hacked one but I just couldn't so I gave in. The actual price is $14 since it's $20 AUS but in my opinion it was still $4 overpriced.
Anyways besides that it was a great game. I went full int and was able to defeat the last boss by lvl 50 (he was lvl 75). The last fight was nearly impossible, really.
I think I found many things about it that I could have changed but what mainly bugged me is that there is no freaking way in hell you could beat this game in less than 10 hours if you go any other route besides full int. It's just very difficult to level up. Takes forever once you get to the higher levels so essentially most of the "playing time" is really leveling up boring time so you can afford (and equip) the lvl 50-75 stuff so that the final boss doesn't kill you in one hit, 1000-2000 damage X(
Otherwise I would have given it a 9/10 (the graphics weren't really that great) and also everything the second review below me said is true. Gotta fix those things as well.
I'm sorry it just...
Was a very good game :P
I actually like the time you spent on the graphics (if you did do them yourself) and the coding of the movements/attacks is perfectly in-sync with the SNES style graphics. Also...I'm a big fan of SNES style games but no one here in Newgrounds has been able to code it (although some have come pretty close with the graphics aspect of it anyways) so it FELT like an SNES game...You are the first one to do that sir....so good job...hopefully I'll be seeing some other game that contains some good characters and is SNES-like from you again.
It was strange...
Almost as if you got the feeling there was nothing to be afraid of with the controls because for some reason you would always succeed.
So instead I tried to focus on the artwork and the metaphorical parts of the story.
Freaking awesome!! God I think I just found a new love for midi-deathmetal music...make some more...and add some of those awesome vocals if you can....BUT...REMEMBER....always keep it funny
