How d'you make such catchy songs?
Seriously, what's your secret? Every time I listen to a song of yours, it's in my head for the rest of the day. At my friend's workplace, they'll burst into this song every once in awhile. Hilarious as always, and looking forward to your next infectious song.
Quite possibly the best anime spoof EVER.
This had ALL the typical anime stereotypes stretched to the point of absurdity. And your willingness to go the whole hog is why we love you, Egoraptor. Great voice work as always by Egoraptor and TomaMoto, hilarious writing, expert lip syncing--every thing is superb.
Best road trip ever.
Now I know what to do when my radio breaks down! I absolutely LOVED the expressions and lip syncing in this. Always makes me laugh. Great job!
Awesome game, but fix the save bug!
For the most part, this game kicks ass. I spent a good 3-4 hours this morning playing it. The multiple different pieces of equipment and soldier classes lend a great deal of the tactical element to the game, which I enjoyed a lot. The fact that different enemies have their own health statuses, armor classes, and weapons also causes you to think ahead and determine which target is of the highest priority. Constantly upgrading your equipment gives an experience that is often tricky, but not unfair.
Sound is good, music is good for the most part (the music club beat grated on me a little bit, but since you said this is all copyright-free, you have a limited selection), and the art captures the true Madness style.
Now for the bad:
The 2.5-D approach works well for the most part, but often times an enemy or another soldier will get in the way of clicking on a space I want one of my team members to move to. This occasionally causes me to shoot an enemy I didn't want to, or makes it nearly impossible to get my squad into an advantageous position.
The most frustrating part of all is the save bug. I believe it has to do something with switching primary and secondary weapons. Sometimes when I save my progress, my character(s) will be outfitted with weapons they were not using previously. This is annoying, but permissible. What caused me to quit playing altogether is the bug in which a squad member's equipment is replaced by zombie hands. This bug ERASES the weapons the soldier was currently using. After the Heavy Machine Gun was destroyed this way, I gave up.
This bug can be corrected if you pay attention to your characters' weapons after you save--change their weapons around and it should usually be resolved. However, if you don't catch it, you can ruin your progress.
It's a shame, because I really enjoyed this game up until that point. Next time, try to playtest a little more thoroughly. Other than this issue, Madness Retaliation was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Amazing game, programming, art, music, and humor!
You've gone above and beyond for this project. I am VERY impressed! Solid programming, great art, hilarious jokes, strategic gameplay, diverse enemies...you've covered nearly everything I can think of. The music is fantastic as well. Even the littlest things make me laugh, like the JoJo's Bizzarre Adventure reference. Overall, wonderful work by the both of you, and I can't wait to finish this game!
One question though: where would I find the save file for this game in my Temporary Internet Files? I set Firefox to erase my History and Cookies so undesirables can't track me, but doing that erases my progress. I'd like to keep playing, so this information would be really helpful. Thanks for making such an awesome game!
Completely absurd and that's why I love it.
Seriously, the idea of a shark strong and vicious enough to bring down a SPACE SHUTTLE with its TEETH is comedic gold. I had trouble actually concentrating on the game because I was laughing so hard at the things I could do. Every time I see this a smile crosses my face.
Very nice work, dude! Listening to this skit definitely put a smile on my face. I loved all the voices you used, especially the butler's...and I'm quite certain that was because his voice reminded me of a depressed, suicidal Droopy Dog.
Keep up with your voice acting! I look forward to hearing more from you soon!
Thank you Artell! I'm glad that you like it! Haha, yeah at first I was going to give him a british accent, but when i got in front of the mic, that voice just came out. I'll try to come up with more skits, but I get the worst cases of writers block. We should collab sometime dude!
Fantastic range and creative concept!
You have excellent command over your voice, and more than fulfilled the requirement of having distinctive voices. Sound quality was damn near perfect, acting was spot-on, and sound effects were appropriate and well-placed. As Nintendoart said, the absence of music was the only thing keeping this from a perfect score. Having some music in your next track will really spruce it up. Overall, excellent job and good luck in the competition!
Thanks man I really appreciate the kind words. Yeah I couldn't find music and I kind of rushed it, but it was hella fun to make. Next time I'll take a few to find some music. Submit yours so that I can listen to it man!
A song worthy of Jack Matthews: Action Cop
This is every epic feeling condensed into 75 seconds. Also an improvement on the original. I don't know exactly how you come up with such amazing compositions for your flash projects, but...can I have some?
I've also never heard songs of such fantastic orchestral quality here on NG. It sounds like it was played by an actual orchestra. Out of all curiosity, what tools do you use to create your music?
