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.

Simple enough

A lot of old school video game rules in this one. Took me back to playing repetitive, yet fun games. I mean, I finished it. Really. I was entertained, and that's all I ask. Everyone wants to be amazed constantly, but this entertaining and thats what is important.

This game was great

I don't know why people are complaining...
There are a lot of stick figures games with worse graphics and they get higher score!
The game was so easy.. Seriously if they can't beat this game how can they beat mega man that is like 10 times harder lol.
I like that you put work in this you even made a nice 20 pages user guide was nice.
The bosses in this game were nice.
The control were ok really I almost never used diagonal aiming it is not even necesary in this game.
To improve this game add:
I think you should add a upgrade system.(We LOVE THAT!)
add add-ons you can put to weapons like laser aiming or penetrate armor.
add armor that when you change to it you get a new costume.
add spaceship battles and that you can pimp your spaceship :)
to make people stop companing about controls add mouse aiming instead.

Band in a Way!

The game is some what horrible. First of is that the graphics are terrible. Please work on it. Second, take out the part when the enemies respawn after you return to that room. It gets very annoying having to kill all opponents all over again. And last is that this game is like a child game.
But:
It is pretty okay, the voice is okay and the story is okay.
