One long wait left sated. Thank you, Krinkels.
I took the route I've been taking for viewing this series and went with Low Quality, and even then, it was still nice to look at. A few slow spots here and there, but otherwise locked-in framerate. Though, I'd still love to see this in full-motion at a higher quality. Oh well, I suppose I shouldn't complain.
I heard a few new sound effects in there. Though I could easily be mistaken...
Unsurprisingly, the music selection fit in nicely with the combat and action.
I'm not entirely sure what to write for this bit...other than comment on Hank's new statue and linb. While I'm not sure why a lobster claw was chosen (Possibly out of randomness, or to cue feedback of all sorts from fans.), but it seems to me that there could be some interesting things involving that, and I'm not even talking about killing.
Overall: 9/10 (I'm aware that the scores don't Average out to 9. I don't care.)
It's been quite some time since the last Madness Combat, but I at least feel like it's been worth the wait. I'm not entirely certain where this will go from here, but I'm fairly excited to find out.

Geez, mw26mw26mw, you need to get a life.
Seriously. Not everything has to follow the feaking guidelines of the Mario Universe. If they did, we wouldn't have half of the animations on here, including some good ones like Super Mario Bros Z.
Well, now that I've got that out of the way, I think you deserve some kudos for that idea. I mean, not very people use Drama like that with Mario in the first place. And then to end it with that "revenge"? Quite funny.
I think you deserve this 8/10. Do enjoy it.
Zombie Collection Nominee? Yes, please.
I believe you've got something here...something good.
Sorry, but I have to take a half-point away for the lag. I understand that it's hard to pull out good detail and high action without some sacrifices, but I think you should be happy with the final scoring for this one. I do have to compliment you for the dashes of 'Shaun of the Dead' you put in there, and I don't just mean the clip of...Shaun of the Dead. I refer to the fast food employee, who thought that tricking a Zombie with a large drumstick would work, and actually did. And then where he sprayed Mustard into another Zombie's face, bringing it down. And, in seemingly true Madness style, the posters and background crap that most people tend to overlook on their first go.
Fitting. That's all I can really say....
I'm afraid that, being a fan of The Zombie Survival Guide, I shouldn't go ahead and rate this section, because it would only be a large negative to your score, and that would be quite unfair to you. If anyone should feel the need to question my more specific reasonings for not rating this part, feel free to contact me.
I think it's a worthy addition to the other Zombie movies on Newgrounds, and I do hope to see news on the next part of this within a few months.
Hehehe....good job on this one.
Obviously just about anything would've been an improvement over the original one, but seeing as how you've far surpassed expectations, I applaud you, sir. The animations for Mario were nicely done, and I do like it how you crammed in the reference to Awesome Center Redux. I'll be awaiting for more goodness to come out of you...
One of those Love/Hate things going on here..
I'm sort of torn on this one...there's some things that I found rather hilarious in this one, name the Kirby scenes from ikool and anything by Osuka or HadoukenDude. (You've proven yourselves relaible sources of sprite-based humour, guys.) And I can't ignore that the 'GTA Joke' from Sprite TV 2 showing back up. Hard not to laugh.
And yet the others...not so much. The Halo thing? The first bit of it was funny; the next two were...meh-ish. And the Intro was actually funny, but could've been a bit shorter.
So...honestly, I think I prefer Sprite TV 2 more than this one. That's not to say this one's not funny...the other one just had stuff in there I thought was funnier. Oh well, all a matter of taste, right?
P.S. I didn't see it listed, but whoever designed the little source of entertainment one could do while waiting for it to load...good job. But something you may want to look at is that when the Grid is toggled, it seems to stay there for the animation itself.
Sorry to rain on your parade even further, but...
Radioactive24 made some damn good points on what you did wrong. I think he went and covered them all well enough, so I'll just use this space to attempt to encourage you to give a shot at that second part I heard mentioned in one of the Reviews below.
If you take a bit more time at it, follow his advice, not only should it look overall better, but with a good story and action behind it all, it should help make your animation stand out better from all the others on here.
But all in all, there does seem to be something worthwhile here, like with your other animation I reviewed. You just need some more practice and time, allright?
Damn. I wanted a Bowser's Kingdom T-shirt.
First off, sorry to hear that you're starting to lose the motivation. I know someone will be mad to hear this suggestion, but perhaps it's time to either take a break from animating, or begin working on something else. It might just help in the long run.
Allright, onto the actual review.
f---ing hilarious, as usual. I upped the score by one for the 'Outtakes' you had at the end with the Hammer Bro. "That's it, I'm throwing muffins!"
Not to mention your humorous excuse for the lack of subtitles, and then furthering it with the little pieces of subtitles at the bottom. Reminded me of the old 'Hal isn't getting paid' joke.
Well, time to wrap it all up. 9/10
I really would buy a Bowser's Kingdom T-shirt if I could.
Ouch, cheap trick..and yet you still got me.
Not much to say here, other than I'm hoping the thing for TSAH3 is going to be the real thing, and not another trick on us. I can't believe I fell for it...
A worthy piece of fan work.
I believe that your flash would be considered an honour by him. You hit all the important arts in it: Fluidity, blood, insane, and unnecessary amounts of violence. And while you are correct about the slowdown near the end, it wasn't as bad as you claimed it to be. Or maybe I didn't care as much. Whichever.
But anyways, 9/10 out of me. I'd love to see you go for a second one, provided it doesn't take you untill 2012. XD
Likewise! Ha, yeah I've had a lot of requests for a sequel, but I never had that intention....I suppose we shall see, I may give in to all this pressure yet...
And yeah, I'm a bit of a perfectionist and the lag seems to bother me a lot more than everyone else... Cheers for the review! :)
Man...no offense, but how long 'till the next one?
First, I'll answer some questions for the idiots below.
To hio3: Hank's dead. And so is the clown.
They died at the end of the last Madness.
And now onto the actual comments.
Like the rest of them, this was well designed, fluid, and inhumanly gory. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
As for the story..I'm going to stand with the other people who are left confused as to who this new foe is. I'll assume it'll make sense in the next one.
And speaking of the next one...how long am I going to wait for it? I mean, I completely understand that:
A) You have a real life.
B) Something this good will take a while to finish.
I gues I'll just have to suck it up, go back to lurking on Newgrounds, and occasionally write more reviews on other flashes. See you when you release a new flash.
