Not entirerly sure
I've played Half minute hero. Almost the whole game. I'm not sure if the rest of the reviewers did since i doubt that. Anyhow. I can see how the graphics are related to the game, however the actual story and jokes didn't make any sense. Don't get me wrong, i liked this flash. It's just imo it's not a parody on the game. All in all, the graphics look cool. I always liked that 8bitish style. Moving the sprites when they were talking is a really cheap way, but i think you've pulled it off succesfully. And to be honest, i couldn't think of a different way or you should have a black dot has a mouth. i dunno :/
The jokes were cool. You really made fun of the stereotypically (J)RPG that simply has been made too many times. Teenaged boys with swords the size of aircrafcarriers that could slice the moon in bitesized bricks. And the obvious pointless quest with an overtop twist of it being a greater power then his sword. ( For this to be true we never know! ).
I always wondered what a 'hero' did after completing a game. Defeating the greatest evil and restoring peace to the whole world.
Anyhow, thanks for the cool flash. I couldn't help myself for humming along with the Take On Me (8bit remix) song. Maybe it would be cooler to have the song of Simple minds - Don't you forget about me, while me main character walks off towards the sunset. With the farmer in the forground saying 'asshole' at the end. But that's just the way i envisioned it.
Goodluck with further productions.
