If Zelda 2 was too hard

Zelda II – Amida’s Curse sets difficulty below the original. And focuses on exploration. There are no cheap deaths and grinding isn’t necessary. So if the original Zelda 2 was too hard for you, maybe this one hack fixes that.

As I understood the game targeted towards to people who wanted to like the original Zelda 2, but found it too difficult.

The hack’s page https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6292/ mentions features:

  • 9 new temples to explore (vs 7 in vanilla Zelda II).
  • 11 new towns to visit (vs 8 in vanilla Zelda II).
  • New soundtrack.
  • Brand new overworld.
  • New story.
  • New graphics.
  • Animated tiles on the overworld.
  • Balanced difficulty, no cheap deaths.
  • No random encounters on the overworld.
  • Loads of gameplay tweaks (building on Zelda II Redux).
  • Lives you find are permanent.
  • No grinding necessary.
  • Enemy rebalancing, no more huge HP pools.
  • Press A as a Fairy to instantly return to your normal form.
  • Temple stones give fixed EXP.
  • Fairy can’t fly through doors.
  • Save anywhere by pressing up and A on the start menu. Be aware though, that you’ll be warped back to the starting point of the game. So, only use this option when you want to stop playing.
  • And so much more…

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.

Mega Man – no damage

Hardcore playing is strange. Have you played Mega Man? It’s pretty hard. But why would you want to beat it even harder than it is? But some people do. As a player who have beaten Rockman(Japanese version of Mega Man, not sure if there are any differences) I don’t even want to imagine beating it with no damage. That’s crazy challenge.

The first video is in Russian. I think not using glitches but using different weapons. And the other one is in English, no other weapons, only default weapon. But use some glitches(which doesn’t make it that much easier).

Do you want to try? I say no. Don’t torture yourself like this!

Dimension Shift – homebrew NES

There are many homebrew projects starts out there. And it’s always hard to say will it be finished or dropped somewhere in the early build or in the middle, or even towards the 98-99% completed as how it happened with Zodiac: The Guardian Story(which is like The Guardian Legend with side view Metroid exploration, instead of top-side view). Dimension Shift is a starting homebrew NES project. Looks kinda in a way of Natsume games. Not sure, maybe it’s a hack of some Natsume game from NES?

So far not much in there. Just nice looking platforms and the character who hits with something like a sword. And very nice music playing.

The Guardian Legend on Discord

Hey guys. Sorry I am so bussy. I created The Guardian Legend on Discord chat https://discord.gg/93C68CT. So join the chat and you can drop some intresting stuff there. Maybe a fan art or music for The Guardian Legend. Or maybe some intresting video or a game that could be featured on this page.

The Guardian Legend on Discord

So yeah. I am still busy with promoting my game Orbox C. And it probably will take few more months. If you want to support me then you can try free version of the game. Orbox C Free. If you like it and buy it then please leave review on game’s Steam page. It’s great puzzle game so give the free version a try.

I want to make a video review of Contra: Revenge of The Red Falcon, and Contra Locked ‘N’ Loaded. And because I am too busy I don’t know when I could do that. I already recorded the walkthrough of the Revenge of The Red Falcon. Now I need record some voice review over it.

Revenge of The Red Falcon is modification of the NES Contra. It’s intresting. It’s much harder and levels are longer.

Locked ‘N’ Loaded I think not really modification but builded on some engine. But it’s like modification on Alien Wars. It lacks in graphic quality a bit but it’s OK. I would record some gameplay of it and make review. Basically it’s good 3.5/5 game, so you can give it a go without waiting for me. It’s free game anyway.

Contra Locked 'N' Loaded

Bye for now 🙂

Donatello secrets and ball tricks!

Hey guys, want to share Donatello secrets and ball tricks with you.

I hope you played Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters on NES so you can understand what’s going on! 🙂

So basically I show 3 ways to make Don immortal and throw the ball like crazy all the ways possible. If you wonder how to make Don immortal there are 3 ways.

  1. Get hit and throw the ball.
  2. Throw opponent and throw the ball.
  3. Make special move and throw the ball.

If you want you can read in details in the description under the video.

Thanks, hope you know this game.

Puzzles in Adventure mode

Have you played Crystalis? It’s a nice action RPG on NES. But there was a huge problem with the game. It has puzzles somewhat. But those puzzles don’t make any sense. So you just have no clue how to solve them. Now we have internet and can watch the walkthrough. But it’s reducing the fun I think!

Crystalis NES game

Those puzzles are like in old quests. Or modern point and click games. Where player have to click everything, and have to try every item he has on everything. Because there is no logic at all. You can’t guess the right thing to do!

On the other side, in our beloved The Guardian Legend the puzzles in adventure mode of the game are way too easy. All you do is just find the room with a hint and solution is pretty obvious right away.

Puzzles in Adventure mode

If there any chance some similar game or a sequel appears(and we know there was some attempts. And The Guardian Legend:Legacy project is also has some slow progression) then I would like to see some puzzles in there too. I think that was a neat feature. However they could be more clever and more intresting.

Optomon did a great job towards it with 2 of the puzzles in his The Guardian Legend: Secret Edition

“He afraids of light” made no sense at first but then I guessed what to do by myself. Yes took me like 15 minutes. But it really made sense, so finding the solution did bring satisfaction.

Such a thoughts about puzzles in The Guardian Legend adventure mode. Have a nice day!
