As a HUGE fan of the Thief series (remember buying the first one when it came out) I really enjoyed this flash. It definitely captures the style of the game. I hope people out there who haven't played them see this movie actually go and check the series out.
The only thing keeping me from giving you a 10 was, besides a couple of scenes with some lazy animation (particularly right after the blackjacking scene), I had hoped this movie was a little bit more to the style of the cutscenes from the games, which in my opinion were absolutely amazing.
Still, a great flash nonetheless. I'm glad to see Thief fans still exist.
Keep making more Thief movies!
The plot was pretty cool and the action sequences were enjoyable to watch, but I thought the lack of detail in the backgrounds made the movie itself look kinda...cheesy. Despite the fact that this wasn't in english, I thought the voice acting was fairly believable.
My biggest disappointment about the movie was the "boss monster" at the end. The style it was drawn in (which just looked like a traced bitmap) didn't fit in with the rest of the movie.
I think you got a lot of potential, so keep at it. Just work on the backgrounds a bit.
This has got to be one of my favorite submissions this week!
Although you make a lot of good points, watching you give your speech is like watching an episode of Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job. I don't know whether to take it seriously, laugh my ass off, or feel awkward and uncomfortable.
I really hope this doesn't get blammed, because it's awesome!
I was in disbelief when I saw that anybody remembers Incubation. That came out in what, '97? And I remember it being faaaaar ahead of its time.
I guess I'm not the only one out there that feels a little nostalgic about those old, great, somewhat obscure games. This game is awesome and it totally makes me want to dig up my Incubation CD and probably end up spending hours attempting to get it to work.
What's next, a flash reboot of Shadow Warrior or Terminal Velocity? How about Terra Nova (no, not the gay TV show, to those uninformed)?
I spent WAY too much time playing this...
This is a pretty badass game, but the only problem for me was that endurance mode was waaaaaay too easy. Unless I just figured out the perfect combo of factories; 3 pyramids right of the bat, a radio tower, then a tank factory. Anything else after that was just overkill. Seriously, I left it running while I made breakfast, took a crap, and smoked a cigarette. When I finally came back after an hour my base was still running strong without a single point of damage.
Anyway, I liked the retro-style graphics and the music was pretty catchy. Gameplay/interface was pretty smooth, and the progression of difficulty was just right. Except for the ease of endurance mode, this was a pretty solid game.
Very fun, addictive game!
Anyone who thought this game was "too hard" obviously never got to the point where you get the laser pistol. Holy crap! Once I got that, I went entire levels without getting hit once.
I thought the angle in which you could hit enemies was fitting, otherwise the game would be TOO easy. It seemed to take a bit of strategy, even if it seemed like a mindless zombie shooter. Maybe next time everyone would be happy if all the zombies would just walk in a straight line into their bullets. Just a thought...
Anyway, fantastic game; graphics, sound, and style. Oh, and the sunglasses on the ground that you can pick up was a nice touch.
