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)?
Zelda 2 – overworld theme
The Guardian Legend – Corridor 0(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?
Also here is the new Astrolancer demo from Stuffman:
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.)
