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.

I dislike facing the same enemies again and again

That's a pity because the game does seem nice, at least it has a story and many big maps to play through. Maybe that's how old school games go... but I'm leaving it.

"Hey, what's this?"

Is what I thought when I found the red ship, and then the character said it too!

This game is awesome. I just reviewed Stage 4 and said the levels should scroll rather than screen-by-screen, but I take that back. The more I play, the more I realize the screen-by-screen adds not only to the gameplay, but the atmosphere of the game. This game is awesome, I'm totally favoriting it, blogging about it, and finishing all of the levels!

And, if you knew my normal attention span for games, you'd know that me finishing it is the highest compliment I can pay it :D

Keep 'em coming!

Fine

Well one thing i don't like is the artwork! i actually like her better when not in game, second, this game gives you health when you don't really need it! then when you do need it, its hard to get one! and this game needs more check point!

but overall, the rest of the game is kind of fun to play!
