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.

Nice.

This is a good fast paced platform shooter. Not too hard but not easy at times either. My only problem is the animation in the cutscenes. It seems kind of stiff, like the characters don't move much. Voicials are great though.

Have a little tact on your comments

A lot of work and love goes into making a flash game. It's disrespectful to simply insult their work. Artists put in a lot of hours working on a game and publish their work, and its easy to give nonconstructive criticism in just a few second to write only to make people lose confidence in themselves.

Flash artists aren't born good, they build their talent over the years so that you could play a good game for a few minutes.

The least you can say is why it was bad and say how you could improve it instead of saying "It was bad" or "The graphics were shit."

The graphics were horrible, the gameplay was good, the music you chose for the beginning has been used plenty before..... uhhhh but yeah the main problem is good ol' runkachunk.

If you watch "Street Fighter Chode" on newgrounds you might understand why this loses points.

Beauty and the Beast

I'm sorry, but this game just dosen't do it for me. In 2011, with nearly thousands of wonderful flash artists you decide to go with a style that makes the people on deviantart look ok. Really the game is ok (I played for about 10 minutes) but the graphics just turned me off.

The entire point of Beauty and the Beast was learning to look past surface appearances... not the best comparison you made there.

Yay!

Thanks for finally releasing something with a little originality and personality. Don't worry about people complaining about the graphics (which worked great for this game) they're the reason why games mostly suck these days.

No complaints. Everything looked great. Please make more!
