Videos I Like #7: The Problem With Warp Whistles
The Problem With Warp Whistles explores the nature of warping and it's affects on the hero. Sure, you got to Bowser in a hurry but what about all that stuff you passed up? Well, unless it's Lost Levels. The quicker that game is over and done with, the better. But I digress. At 2:16, this video is pretty short and it's safe for kids to watch. I'm especially fond of the placement of sound effects in this flash video. The sound of a Koopa shell bouncing back is used to go along with Mario's shocked facial expression when Bowser tells him one of the power-ups that he missed because he skipped some worlds. Great stuff from a great animation short.
