Staff Review

It is a normal day in "New Block City," when suddenly chaos ensues.  A fantastic achievement, this 25+ minute animation is truly a masterpiece.  From giant and extremely detailed props to incredible voice acting and music, this animation is definitely fallentomato's best work to date.  If you are not a fan of fallentomato yet, you will be after watching this!
