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.

Controls

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?

I beat the hidden boss! I get... Turd of the Week?

This game was a great LoZ-like game, but I have a few minor gripes.
1) The bosses had a way to long cycle compared to their health. With A-bot, you don't notice it, but Me and Piconjo were extremely hard do to the fact it took me 5 minutes.
2) Wade damages you when you deal a successful attack. I had the maximum of 9 hearts at this time, and I found myself having to dodge all of his attacks, or pray for health.
3) There are two types of enemies, and the only difference is health. Considering how great the bosses attacks were, you shouldn't have a problem creating unique enemies.

Overall though, a great game.
