Rygar on NES was one of those games that felt like entire another world. It felt really big at that time. Great mysterious atmosphere and exploration feeling. Ed Findlay trying to create some kind of Rygar remake or sequel. He called it Rygar Vengeance and it can be found on his site https://www.retrogamer3.com/ . In case site not works he also has his youtube channel.
At the time I write this the game is beta version 1.4. Below I post some screenshots. And the only short gameplay I found is in the Ed’s youtube teaser video 3 years ago. I’ll post it below screenshots.
A guy Stuffman on tumblr posted quite ambitious claim of game project inspired by The Guardian Legend.
you are LANCER TWO, weapon of mass destruction and property of the AUTONOMOUS SPACE-TRAVELING ROBOT ORGANIZATION, a military branch of the GALACTIC COUNCIL. you are a cutting-edge fighting machine, capable of merging with your TRUSTY LANCE to become a tiny FTL-capable spacecraft, designed to jet into the deepest reaches of space and fight alone. you may or may not have feelings. (if you do, it’s plausibly deniable).
your current mission is to travel to a mining colony at the fringe of the galaxy, which has been invaded by the dreaded VON NEUMANNS. theorized to have already infested much of Andromeda, this self-replicating menace must not be allowed to have a foothold into our galaxy!
the GALACTIC COUNCIL will take no risks with the VON NEUMANNS; upon arriving in the star system, the BLACK HOLE BOMB inside you arms itself. should you be defeated and fail your mission, it will detonate, taking you and everything in the star system with it.
the VON NEUMANNS are already doomed. can you save this lonely planet, and yourself?
(she has a more “civilian” look, but in true NES fashion, you can’t see it until you beat the game.)
Rollie is a new NES game by the guy under nickname Optomon/Optovania. He is the creator of The Guardian Legend: Secret Edition. And also a number of nice mods. Now he created his very own game from scratch.
Another game similar to ours Zaider – Battle of Peguss (超戦士ザイダーバトルオブペガス). You can walk out of the ship and walk in somewhere. I don’t know details. There is no walkthrough around. The game is on MSX 1986. Ability to walk inside buildings seems interesting. I read that weapon(s?) can be upgraded. The terrible scrolling is not in this game only. It is quite common for MSX games back then.
Also on nicovideo I found probably a remix of the title theme. Sounds nice so I adding it.
So a lot of you probably heard of JJJJJJJ password in The Guardian Legend. But there is a problem. You are sent to the Area 8 without the cross key. So you can’t go out.
Today I’ve got an idea. I went to the password generator and inserted the JJJJJJJJJ code. And then I set the cross key check box. So it generated the new password which does the same but with the key! And the main reason I want to share the password is because it has only 2 characters changed. So it’s also very easy one.
JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJIJ JJJJ JJOJ
So now there is a question is this setup can be beaten? Maybe someone will check that out and share the result on the forum or in the discord chat: https://discord.gg/93C68CT
[EDIT]well I checked it and – the corridor 9 is completed but there is no key for zone 10. Which means this – even if there was cross key then JJJJ still was not possible to beat. I came back to the password generator and added the missing key. Which makes it not really the thing which we would want. But, if someone wants: JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJMJ JJJJ JJCJ This one has the bended rectange key.
