Hunters: Relic of Stars is a 2D Action Platformer, a love letter to many old school action games of the 8 and 16 bit eras. There are six stages in total, this is the just first one!

Play stage 2 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/566291
Play stage 3 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/566564
Play stage 4 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/566734
Play stage 5 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/566895
Play stage 6 here: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/567109

CONTROLS:
Arrow Keys - Move / Aim
Z - Shoot
X - Jump
C - Change Weapons (when available)
Spacebar - Pause / Open Map

You can also use WASD to move and JKL to shoot/jump/change weapons, however on some browsers/keyboards you may run into issues with too many keys being pressed at once, nothing I can do about that.

========================
PLAY WITH A CONTROLLER:
========================
If you have a PC Gamepad, I highly recommend using the Joy2Key Software. You can download it: here: http://bit.ly/NCx4h

Saving - Progress through the stage is saved automatically at every major checkpoint. If you have to leave and come back, your progress will still be there!

Bugs - If you do find a bug, please report it to me via PM. Be as descriptive as you can, I can't fix things if I don't know what went wrong!

Sticky Keys Bug - If the keys feel like they're sticking, character keeps running after you let go, please read the third post in this thread: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1123318
This is a bug with some browsers/systems and there's really nothing I can do to fix it.

Meh

I've played games like this and loved them. But with this there were too many things that were wrong. For the life of me I couldnt get used to using x to jump instead of the up arrow, also when you clear a room it should stay clear. More enemies shouldnt be there when you go back. Also, even on the easy setting i found myself dying alot.

I don't know what everyone is bitching about.

It's a nice game, the controls are solid, it looks nice, and has some good voice acting. For those complaining about the graphics, remember this is a flash game. Someone who took time to do this for no pay (I think).

This has so much potential

but it needs to be executed better...the sounds are wonderful but the graphics and stiff controls don't do it justice. the story that you had going while i was playing was working too...i just wish the other parts weren't dragging it down

This is not a good game.

The graphics are low quality. The controls are extremely limited in a game where your enemies will not be so generous as to remain directly in front of, or directly above you. A triple button spread of fire, jump, and change weapon, on the left side of the keyboard, is unintuitive when the ring finger is not comfortable for something you will be doing often.

2/10 for being entirely functional as a game.
