It's still on the front page after two days! This is great!

Edit 1:
Woohoo!!! Thanks for front page! That's the first I'm I've gotten front page with something I've made myself (i.e. besides my co-author in the Tutorial Collab '08). Also the first time I've had an awesome score immediately after judgement :D

Pico Day Submission!

After many hours of work, we bring you The Legend of Newgrounds.

In the style of the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Newgrounds chronicles the adventure of Pico as he journeys to save King Tom from the clutches of an army of evil Flashes and their mysterious unknown leader.


S - Swing the Sword
A - Action (close a message/open a chest)
Arrows - Movement

Hope you like it! It took me FOREVER to finish it. Let me know if you find any bugs! Also, feel free to use this on your site!

Reported bugs will be fixed, and things you want updated (simple things like how long the enemies are invincible, not adding scrolling or a bow and arrow) might be added in a version update.

Thanks to Adman1993 for the graphics--they look great!

Be sure to vote, and be sure to review!


Secrets/Easter Eggs

You can get NG user levels by opening NG Chests, hidden in the field (they appear after you kill all the enemies on certain screens).

The Lock Legion can be found in the game (locked doors).

Strawberry Clock makes an appearance in this game--can you find him?

Cool game but....

ill give ya a good score its one kick azz game only a few problems though kick back i know youve been working on that it aint that bad of a prob but you should probably cut that in half. plus all of the enemies look about the same i know you where going for the copy cat kind of thing but could you make atleast 4 diff looking enemies? XP i know there are alot of copy cats on NG but they all dont copy one thing if ya get what i mean. And i would tend to agree with some of the other reviews ive seen that one the shield should be able to block and 2 maybe some diff weapons =D

One last thing before i forget the A-Bot is way to hard XPPP not saying you should make it easier but in your future games you should make your first boss kinda ez then make them progressively stronger from there =D
