The Sad Story of Super Mario

August 22, 2011

20110802-103719.jpgSo strange. I wonder why Nintendo would kill Super Mario on the cover of his first game. In case your not familiar with the game (which you should be, if you’re not), Mario is about to fall into a pit of lava.

I don’t know the original source of this photo, so I’m sorry I can’t credit you, who ever you are.

Flipnote Studio Weekly Topic: Robots

June 11, 2011

This week’s topic: “Robots” (June 10, 2011 – June 16, 2011)

This week we would like you to create Flipnotes about robots. Try to make animations about robots that can walk, talk, dance, fly, fight or do anything that you imagine.

Create robots that can help people, or that can do special tasks such as making cars. Try to animate giant robots battling with monsters from space, or saving the earth from destruction. You might even want to make a robotic version of the Flipnote Frog! See where your creativity takes you.

The topic ends Friday. Do you have any great ideas?

Check out all the sure to be great Flipnotes here, and check out the full weekly news here.
