I like the use of Flash in this animation, it sort of gives it a cartoon-y feel, but at the same time feels consistent and professional in the editing of the graphics. Even though this style looks really nice, it is a bit limited at showing what is happening, especially at the end with the demo match, which doesn't really give a sense of how the game would be played. In my opinion it would've worked better with different angles (or 3D shots) focussing on important game dynamics. The game itself isn't that complex, but the scoring system involving 'owning' towers to square the score makes it more interesting and would probably result in a variety of new tactics for this game. It also looks very open compared to most games, so there's a lot of opportunity for robot interaction which is good. The only other main criticism I have of the animation is the audio quality, which makes the voiceover a bit difficult to hear. Good Luck!
