Get on My Horse Get on My Horse

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Addicting as always.

Man, this was fun to watch. I think the best part of the song is when the horse starts playing the synthesiser.



Mega Man: Fowl Play Mega Man: Fowl Play

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome.

Nicely done, Glitch. The part where Axl takes a dive into the pit of rabid Mets was just hilarious.



T.M.Ninja Turtles Parody T.M.Ninja Turtles Parody

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Meh. Seen better.

I think TMNT parodies are great.
After seeing AMNT and Mutant Ninja Turtles01 by Valor XII, I was more than ecstatic to watch this.
Unfortunately, when I did see it, I was somewhat disappointed.

The graphics are horrid. All of the characters [especially the Turtles] look like a three-year-old did them [WTF is WRONG with Shredder?!], and the animations are just the same repetitous thing over and over again. I do applaud the author for using this to his advantage [Michealangelo spanking the hooker with the animation he does], but it's still something that leaves a lot to be desired. I am CERTAIN the author could do much better than this.

I gave the sounds a high score because I am just nuts for nostalgia. I always thought the original theme song was better than the head-ache inducing thrash that is the new theme song.
The hits do sound solid when the Turtles fight, and I like that.

The whole plot seems like a bad comedy gone worse. It seems that the author was trying something in the first half of the flash, saw that it didn't work out, and then threw in a couple of dirty jokes to try to redeem it.
All it resulted in is a garbled attempt at a script. And dude, one piece of advice?
That 'Copy and Paste' thing you did for the credits is a freaking EYESORE. Nobody likes random images just pasted on to each other like that, so just get RID of it!
However, I did laugh a bit when Mikey devoured that Pizza while a wide-eyed Splinter looked on.
That was cool.

But a catchy theme song and one funny tid-bit does not a quality flash make. the author could have put in a LOT more effort into this before sending it. As is, it only deserves a below average 4 out of ten.

Saddam Statue Smashfest Saddam Statue Smashfest

Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

I'm sorry....

I absolutely can NOT recommend this to anyone.
This movie was definitely a quickie, since all you do is bash Saddam's statue with a stick.
That's all the gameplay is, really.
Hit the left key of the mouse a few times and boom...you win.
I'll give credits to the graphics and animations, since they are really crisp and clean, but I won't award them to the author himself, since he DID admit to stealing the sprites for the job (then again, I won't knack him for that since many successful flashes use pre-made sprites, especially in parodies.)

Other than that, though, I'll have to agree with that last reviewer who said that he doesn't understand what this is doing on the front page.
This is not a game to even warrant checking out, and if you do, it'll be the biggest waste of five seconds of your life (which is how long the game will take.)



IRAQ ATTACK IRAQ ATTACK

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not bad...

When I first played this game, I was psyched about the whole concept...I mean, where ELSE would you get the opportunity to blast Saddam's oil reserves to high heaven?
Unfortunately, when I got deeper into the game, I just wanted to pass this flash and move on.

The graphics and animation are pretty decent.
The characters look like their real life incarnations, and the overall appearance screams Iraq at war.
The sounds are pretty decent as well, from the bombs blasting to the chopper blades running, to the sound of your chopper blowing up should you screw up a mission and die.
The wakka-wakka Charlie Brown sound effects, though, are beyond annoying, and should have been left out in favour of some real voice acting.

The controls, though, are what really irks me about this game. When you look at the explanation of the controls, for example, UP arrow is forward, left is left, DOWN is reverse, and A and S are your weapons- sounds pretty straight forward, right? When you play the game though, you realise that this is not the case.
You'll find yourself fighting more with the controls than the irate Iraqis, and quicker than you can say 'Shishkabibble', you're spiralling down to the ground and later blown to smithereens by Bush who decides that Iraq must not get a hold of their technology....Hold that thought, Bush....if the controls for the helicopter are this bad, the Iraqis probably won't bother.

Overall, this is a pretty decent concept, but the glaring control flaws and annoying vioce effects may make you want to think twice before sitting down with this game. I still advise you to check it out, at least...but don't count on being gripped by it for long.



Celebrity Terrorist Alert Celebrity Terrorist Alert

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I like this one!

This game is really cool.
As a bounty hunter, you get to choose your targets, ranging from Osama Bin Laden to Saddam Hussein. From there, you can fulfill your dreams by taking out your anger on targets shaped like them....I mean, how often do you get a crack at Saddam?

The graphics are really neat.
It almost completely captures the essence of both a shooting gallery and the thrill of the outdoor hunt. You feel a great sense of satisfaction from blasting those terrorists to bits.
While several aspects of sounds such as the crates exploding and guns firing off, the heavy metal tunes tends to get a bit irritating at times, making you wish you could go off screen and shoot the guitarist instead.
Still, the sounds are pretty much okay.

The controls are excellent.
Not only do they start you off with a relatively easy control setup, but if you don't like it, the provisions are made so you can alter them to your liking. Nice.

I got a real kick out of playing this game, and chances are, you would, too.
I give this a 9 out of ten.
