Ancient Powers NX8 is a RPG that is influenced by Metroid, the NES classic. The graphics are okay, but way too small. Hard to make out details. The escape key is an odd choice to quit. You should change it, or at least have a warning menu to confirm that you want to quit. Ancient Powers NX8 needs better graphics, a way to zoom in on the game, and more content.

Nice game

I enjoyed that...after a bit of running around like a headless chicken , i finally figured out that you have to change the weapon that made it easier to play after that


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

surprised me

didnt quite know what to expect when i read about 3 different endings from one screen, shortly after i was greeted with awesome 8-bit chip tune goodness. well laid out level, took a bit of experimenting with the stats to get anywhere. nicely done!

Just a note to people who are stuck. The trick is the customization of your weapons. If you press Z and use the arrow keys to change the stats, you can use it to your advantage. The stat changes aren't permanent, so go nuts.

I enjoyed this game for what it is. I did seem to get stuck in some places, but with some creative thinking, you can get through. I got ending 2 ^.^ My only suggestion is a little explanation like my first paragraph, just to explain about the power modification, because without this knowledge, you can't actually finish the game. Thanks for the interesting game!!
