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.

Finally used to the controls!

Heh replaying your series on hard and challenge mode now and can appreciate how well the level design is on both of those modes.

Also I would play that dating sim >.>

Nowhere near as good as Tom makes it out to be.

Honestly, I'm not really sure how a game like this got the feature. Little variety in enemies, clunky controls, annoying knockback, the voice acting isn't that good, the characters do things in cutscenes we should have been able to do ourselves in the first place, the weapons are completely unrealistic (take 50 shots to stun a human but can kill a robot in two?) and the boss at the end is nearly impossible to beat on any level above Easy. And if there's one thing I hate, it's when something takes me more than 10 attempts on the normal level.

I'd LIKE to rate this higher, but as it stands, I have to give it a 3. And since I can't see the last cutscene, I can't really continue to the next few stages.

Awesome

This is very good .. congratulations :D
Im gonna play the other stages now :P
I just don't like when you get out of one "division" after killing the enemies in it and then enter again in the division and the enemies are there again :S
