A lot of great art I don't even remember seeing on the thread.
I find the biggest issues being the song, while I love Muse beyond all reason, the quality was bad and it would havebeen better to use an NH made Nintendo remix of any Nintendo franchise, I'm sure Mario's theme would have been easy to find.
I also think the background and such is kinda blah. Maybe some classic Nintendo backgrounds, some art from the game which the fan art came from or maybe just a black background would have been better for me, personally.
I find that some of the art is cropped weird, I think if all the art was constrained to to fit just above the name of the artist it'd be better, I was kinda sad to see parts of my drawing of Ness in particular obscured from vision.
Lastly, if all the artist's names were links to their art or just the Newgrounds page that's be excellent. I can't really find the pages of a lot of the artists otherwise.
Fair enough, I would agree with you on most of those. Thanks.
Comedy and sour grapes
I thought the joke was funny, and the "Continue?" part made me laugh, I WANTED to click to see the next part of the ongoing punchline.
The reviews for this game make me laugh also, people whine about the punchline and then start going on with hardcore critique of the gameplay and storyline, as if this weren't at least a "B" in the grading system of Newgrounds. Really? Mario has inventive maps? I mean it may be one of those games whose gameplay and storyline mimic that of Mario, but really, making up things like the controls being sluggish is just sad for people who are just upset they ran into the first pit.
Funny, literal and the reaction of the audience may be funnier than the game.
