Arrows (< > v ^) - Move
Space - Read signs
A - Sword
D - Item (boomerang/bomb)

You've probably often seen earlier versions of the game, but this is how the final game is gonna look.

The programming is done by me, and the player, enemies and explosions and a lot more graphics is done by ~sega-fortress.

In this demo you can play with the bombs, and with the boomerang.

My favorite is the boomerang because you can draw the path like in Zelda Phantom hourglass.

I also like the bombs, cause you can throw them!

The music is streamed, which reduces the filesize a lot!

Have fun; feedback?

Hey man, cool job :) The boomerang works really well.
Would be awesome to see it with some kind of game element.
Was this done in AS2 or 3?

Well I've always wanted to make a real-time sword play/Zelda-style game, and I've been planning this game for years (in different builds, different stories, nothing finished) but in reality I imagine not actually finishing a game like this. But, if I ever got it as an actual job, I'd do it..

You could just try making a smaller version instead just to figure out the game mechanics or to see how it would work with enemies :)
If you have an idea for something it's always worth trying it out, especially if it's something you have spent a lot of time thinking about.

I really like the boomerang here, and the coding in general is pretty smooth. Are you still working on it?
And *wonderwhy-ER is right about the controls, you should make it arrows and mouse, no keyboard.

JohnJensen Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009
Thanks, bro. 8-) No, sadly I'm not working on it currently, since the graphics artist quit. But we might pick it up sometime in the future. It must be rewritten though, since the current code is AS2, and I'm all AS3 now. =P

I'll take a look at the controls once I begin working on it again. ;)

not bad, it's quite good actually! However, you should remake the controls so the player doesn't have to switch from the arrow keys to the mouse all the time. Also, it seems the sword isn't quite effective if used vertically. Maybe you should make better use of collision masks. The boomerang thing was rather ingenious though.

For the controls, maybe you could set the WASD keys for movement and the mouse button to attack and use special weapons, and the 1-9 keys to switch items. It could be interesting to be able for example to throw bombs in every directions using the mouse.

Lmao. I played with the bombs for like, ten minutes. If you just stand to the right or left and continually chuck bombs, you can create a string explosion which slowly kills you. :lol:

The controls a really easy to use, and I like the thing so far.

Also, the boomerang, epic fun to use. I used it for twenty minutes. :slow:
However, iunno how you could do this, but the lines with the mouse (on this laptop, anyway. Iunno about all these other people) when you're controlling the boomerang are pretty stiff. Literally lines. Perhaps you could make them more rounded? I don't actually know if this is possible since I'm not a smart person, but you're epic. x:

Either way, completely awesome. :lol:

Looking good but controls are horrific :) How do you imagine people to use both arrows, A S D keys and mouse? Do you think we have 3 hands? :D

I think just add sword as selectable and move selection of weapon on to mouse wheel. Then when sword is selected and you push mouse button you strike, when bomb you throw and when boomerang you draw path.

Other then that... Probably not much to else to say so far :) Seems to be working and have potential tough little bit too Zelda like... You may end up criticized by those who played original game for it not being as good or even that it is not better then Zelda which is normal with remakes of games... People usually wait more from it then from those games on which it was built on.

Thanks for the critique. Mouse wheel selection is a pretty neat idea... I'll write that down for future use. :paranoid: Also sorry for not replying to such an elaborated comment sooner.

Yeah, if let's suppose we had a situation with many enemies and you had to throw the boomerang with D and the mouse, and then run away with the arrow keys, it's a bad combination. But if I bring up this game again, I'll be sure to experiment with efficient controls
