Note: This is the official release to Newgrounds of the Game stolen a few days ago by someone pretending to be me :( , if you've already played it, please vote how you liked it, though you should now play it with it's proper aspect ratio, it's much better :D

The idea behind this game was to push how large of a single Movieclip I could make each level, and in the process pay tribute to my absolute favourite game on the PS2, Shadow of the Colossus, which hopefully will be seeing an HD re-release on PS3 soon!

Play as a mysterious Pale Man of the North in a quest to rid the Kingdom of a most unusual plague, and in the process win the throne to the empire!

I hope you enjoy this little cinematic style game, I've really tried to squeeze the atmosphere in. Featuring music from Duncan Fenn of The Red Swan Hotel,which you should defintely check out in the link to the side and the as usual brilliant http://www.Incompetch.com

Ending didn't make sense

You start the game a year further on than present day, and when present day comes, you get sworded, and booted. Not only that, but by a king on his deathbed, after you single-handedly took down 2(3) gigantic creatures by yourself.
I believe the scout button should let you look further away.

Good Tribute

*SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER*

I knew the white guy was going to get killed at the end and not only because i played Shadow of the Colosus before.

*SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER*

Good game tho. Could have used a bit more slay here slay there on each Giant Golems and chance of falling due tot he Golems shaking you off like in the true game.

I almost quit.

I had the frustrating quality of Shadow of the Colossus and the feeling of bigger than life. And man, each time I felt like quitting, I told myself don't.

I wish I had been a fan of the Colossus series

Definitely 10/10. Fantastic game. Controls obviously not overcomplicated. Graphics could use work (especially the vines), but it's not a big deal, as the levels are enormous in the first place.

May I ask, how did you put together such large levels? When I work with levels that huge, Flash crashes. It's not my computer. :(

Anyway, extremely entertaining game to play. There was no clear cut goal, but like console games back in the day, the intention is simply to win - not to unlock achievements, etc.

Music was perfect. Falling down in chapter 3 was awesome. Fun to see the monster as the camera pans out at the end. Like connecting the dots, but with more awesome. :D

This is a very simple engine, and you've done a great job of making it fun to play with.

But, hm, are the scores messed up? I didn't submit one, but it seemed as if the longest run throughs were at the top..

The-EXP responds:

Since I setup the scores to be highest at the top, lower times are converted into higher scores, so that the fastest players get the most points. Thanks for the review, it took ages to get that music timed right in Chap 3 :)
