"A retro-futuristic land in which robots blindly serve their pony creators.
However, the robots eventually rebel against their cruel dictators and leave them in search of a better life..."



After buying the latest album from Rainbow Rooted - Four's Fall Down, I fell in love with pretty much all the songs! One in paticular came to mind after I was browsing through my favorites~ I just had to take the opportunity to make this flash! Simple enough, but it brings back the retro-gamer in me... how i miss the 8-bit side-scrolling days! :roll:

I'm slowly getting better at this pixel-drawing thing! Even more so animating it! :D

Original artwork comes from =Tsitra360's My Little Pony-bots

I simply pixelated and animated it

This is amazing! Seriously, I love everything about this. From the designing to the style to the background and the music all contained in one special container package of goodness.

First off you did a very good job emulating the style of this particular animation. It feels like and looks like a classical/retro video game of the 80's or 90's. The design of the mane 6 and the whole thing in general look odd but that works towards the advantage of giving this animation that retro feeling so it works well in actuality.

Secondly the music. I'm speechless about it because it's not good and well orchestrated but it's super catchy (I'm pretty sure everyone thinks of Megaman when they hear this soundtrack) It brings back classic nostalgia to many people which only adds to the charm. It's also very engaging and energetic. I feel like kicking some serious butt listening to this music and if this were an actual game it would definitely help out a lot. Regardless the music fits the atmosphere of this somewhat dark game and it works perfectly.

Overall this is a god-send and the only thing I can see to be improved is to make this an actual game.

Don't be so modest about just "animating" it.

The animation is smooth for it's animation style. But I don't think that it was a wise decision to make the wings change so drastically each frame. Some nice alpha blending would have been a better decision there.

The selection of the base material is well done and they resonate well together, especially when factoring in the pixelated redrawing animation style.

However, the animation does not loop smoothly, the entire stage shakes a little at the end. Further more, you seem to have ignore the loading of the movie.

You should design the content so that the animation doesn't stagger while the music loads. Put the entire animation in a MC and put it on a two frame long timeline. Then use a looping event sound on frame two. Finally add a stop(); action on frame 2. This should let the animation load before the sound.

Obvious, yet very clever pun, and the whole theme fits nicely.

You should create a real game from this. Each pony could have their own ability. You are already so amazing at creating the intro, and I think anyone would agree. You could ask Tsitra360 if they would be okay to plan out the game with you. Also, if you don't understand how to do the gaming coding stuff, just ask someone who's already made something like that :) Anyway.

Amazing WORK! ^^

gosh, I couldn't program a toaster if my life depended on it!

I'm sure Tsi wouldn't mind at all if someone spun off this silly idea of a game.
I know he was very amused when he saw this!

I might *eventually* get around to make a proper intro animation, but only time will tell-

Thanks a kajillion!

Thanks mang, glad you like it that much!
for telling InterrobangPie about this, By all means broski! I'd be honnored to know what he thinks about this!

also, if you can tell him, I would love to animate any more of his awesome chiptune music tracks for his youtube channel!
His chiptunes are really inspirationnal for me and most of my artworks!
It goes without say, i love your tracks too! If ever you need a pixelated animation as well, shoot me up a request! :meow:

*I'll be busy for the next month or so but after BronyCon, i'll be animating other little stuffs like these!

Very nicely done, the animation is great for the most part albeit Twilight's mane shifting right to left as much as it is can be slightly off putting, but a fantastic job never the less!
