The Guardian Returns guitar theme

The music loosely based and inspired by the music of the game. It mostly sounds different and on its own, but a few notes reminds you the game’s music.

This could be an actual soundtrack to some sequel or something. It has very Metroid’s music feeling. Something unexplored and unsettled. Like an abandoned city.

The actual music starts from 2:42. And when I listen to it feels too short. Just when I start gettin into the theme it just ends.

What if The Guardian Legend is a platformer?(sort of)

This is fun. Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link randomizer has an option to switch sprite to another. This is how Miria sprite looks like in it. Yes she is green. But NES limitations made that way that if she was red then everything around that uses the same color would be red.

And by the way have you noticed that the music in map walking view in Zelda 2 has some similarities with The Guardian Legend start tune(Approaching Naju)?

Check out the moment when Miria raise up tri-force at 2:22:35. This is a funny happy face. Also she has a kiss with Hyrule there, or is it a hug?

P.S.

Also here is the new Astrolancer demo from Stuffman:

Böbl

Simple but interesting homebrew NES game – Böbl. Modern NES games sometimes show interesting features that could exist back then. We never seen them. In this one there are kinda “physical” water splashes when you dive in and out of the water.

Also the game is free if you want to try it out on emulator. Not all emulators run it. I used Nestopia to play it.

Nostalgia song

Nice video. I have no idea what is the song about as it is in Spanish. But the video footage runs so much cool 80-90’s things, mostly retro games from various platforms. Spectrum, Amstrad, Atari, Commodore, Neo Geo, Nintendo, Sega, Azpiri, Royo, Erbe…

The cat sat on the back of its owner for 16 hours, while he was streaming a game for 17 hours.

I bet you don’t know Zhenya Bagatsky. He is a hardcore gamer from Russia. He plays games for his own fun. How I know about him? He is one of the admins in Russian retro gaming comminty that I often visit. I also heard he was a good arm wrestler.

So he posted another video play through. This time the “Namida no Soukoban Special” game on Famicom Disk System. I am not a fan of Sokoban, so I didn’t even read the annotation. But what I saw was something strange on his back. So curiously I clicked the video and figured that was a cat. And then I noticed the stream was pretty long. So I asked him about that.

And he said that the cat jumped on his back after a hour of the stream and then kept sitting for the rest of 16 hours of the stream.

Too bad he has bad lighting. That’s so adorable and amusing.

Video is split in 2 parts. Because youtube limit is 12 hours. But if you really need then here is the link to the sinlgle 17 hours video on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/886156648

The moment the cat jumps on the back is at 1:06:37
