Let's face it folks, at least we won't be coming short of good comedy

"Wow."

That's what I thought as soon as those incredibly lush and detailed backgrounds gleefully reached my eye cones. It's refreshing to see such a craft on Newgrounds, as it borrows heavily from Miyazaki – Princess Mononoke comes to mind, especially the chase scene with that whole theme of darkness/corruption.

There are a few very forgivable mishaps along the way which still don't detract from the experience. I would have loved if you explored the characters a little more, as I feel the second half introduces the various scenes a little too hastily. The surreal atmosphere almost reminds me of Wakfu, also French with a very unique artstyle, I think you guys got that kind of potential at hands. It would be very interesting, I think, to see what you could make of it.



I just love what you've been able to come up with, really nice tribute video!
As for the music, man, anytime whenever you feel like, you're welcome to use any of my tracks. It's an honor to be a part of this ;)

Looking forward to this year's contest as well, that'd be fun.

To be fair, this isn't what I'd consider bad by a long shot. You already claimed it was a "cute and short" platformer, but apparently that doesn't stop people from disgraceful drama queens. Surely, the abrupt end was rather anticlimactic, and I think the game as it stands right now is more of a prototype than a finished product.

The gameplay seems to be slow. I'd suggest tweaking the movement speed and make sure the jumping feels more fluid and less "moon gravity". It's a start, I mean, you can definitely do more about it and it seems like it's in your bucket list. Just keep it up and turn this into a full, polished experience. I'd play it.

The "moon gravity" was embed in the story for the one part. Experimented a bit with it, but decided to make it quite a bit extreme to show the lack of gravity. But you're right, it might not be the best level of gravity for fast platforming. Thank you.


Clever, short and sweet. Just how I like it.



I own the full version of Color Switch on my Android phone, which I play on a daily basis, so I'm more than familiar with the game. I decided to try out this port just to see if there were any differences. I frankly don't understand the inclusion of ads in a web port. Just why? The mobile version itself is already pretty aggressive on ads and you need to pay a small amount just to get rid of them. I think the web port itself is an effective advertisement for the full version given that it pretty much behaves like a demo. Why including ads in a web port demo of a full game available on a different platform? I think it discourages people from even trying out the game on mobile. For a demo, it's how you would expect to behave. Just a handful of levels with pretty much the same mechanics as the full version. Performance may dip sometimes depending on many factors i.e. the website's own ads, though I didn't find it to be a major issue.
Despite the fact that I really enjoy the full version on mobile, I feel forced to lower the score on this demo for the aforementioned reasons. It's an otherwise well made game.

Interesting cover. Very close to the original while still having its own character. Might be just personal taste, but taking the SNES version as a reference, I find interesting how those screams became the centerpiece here. Perhaps too overpowering, given their distortion. You've made your point there; repeating it incessantly to the point of achieving the opposite effect, i.e. obnoxiousness, is kind of a missed opportunity for pauses to let that feeling of dread really sink in. There's a good underlining atmosphere beneath all the drama, it just feels cluttered, restless. Stylistic semantics aside, I like your attempt at widening the sound of an otherwise bassy, subdued loop, and I overall think your interpretation has a lot more going on than the original.

haha in all fairness the original had the screams just as much as this version, you just don't hear that version on the internet as the fanatics tower ost has it without the screams.. I still like it though.. and I like to have the stylistic choice where I focus on the effects and leave the melody almost like a backdrop in the bg - so yeah stylistic choice aside thanks for the review! :)

It's good to see newer talents grow over time. Sleek breakcore, kinda rewinds me back to earlier Newgrounds. Nice breakdown in the middle, too. It's simple, but genuine, like the whole track. Nice and chill. Good job.

Album's pretty lit man! After giving it a good listen, I decided that the 90's were the best hip-hop era ever conceived. At times the album resonates like an echo from those days, sometimes a whimper, other times it's a call to move forward. Like a gentle "fuck you", delivered in the nicest possible way.

Keep up the good work and crank that shit up~

Thanks man! I agree. Then again, there's few mindblowing songs today too that blow some of the 90's stuff out of the water, but very far and few. But I loved the 90's stuff. Thanks! :D
