Warning: This is a very CPU-intensive game!

It's still on the front page after two days! This is great!

Edit 1:
Woohoo!!! Thanks for front page! That's the first I'm I've gotten front page with something I've made myself (i.e. besides my co-author in the Tutorial Collab '08). Also the first time I've had an awesome score immediately after judgement :D

Pico Day Submission!

After many hours of work, we bring you The Legend of Newgrounds.

In the style of the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Newgrounds chronicles the adventure of Pico as he journeys to save King Tom from the clutches of an army of evil Flashes and their mysterious unknown leader.


S - Swing the Sword
A - Action (close a message/open a chest)
Arrows - Movement

Hope you like it! It took me FOREVER to finish it. Let me know if you find any bugs! Also, feel free to use this on your site!

Reported bugs will be fixed, and things you want updated (simple things like how long the enemies are invincible, not adding scrolling or a bow and arrow) might be added in a version update.

Thanks to Adman1993 for the graphics--they look great!

Be sure to vote, and be sure to review!


Secrets/Easter Eggs

You can get NG user levels by opening NG Chests, hidden in the field (they appear after you kill all the enemies on certain screens).

The Lock Legion can be found in the game (locked doors).

Strawberry Clock makes an appearance in this game--can you find him?


its not a fun game but not a bad game so its a average game.

fucking pissed me off how many times i lost ps: a dosnt work

Good, but I can't kill A-Bot

Hmm well...

The overall stats are:

Gameplay: 4/10
Its the same enemies, one attack, almost no pickups (hearts) also the fact, that one hit drained a FULL heart, and you turned around, wich was really tedious.
Its the same, tedious gameplay the whole time, and the first Legend of zelda on NES had way better gameplay, with worse technology.

PS: Dungeons were TOO easy to find.

Music: 7/10

I liked the music, and it had a LOZ style, and didnt get repetetive.
Nice job with the music.

Graphics: 5/10

The graphics were nice at the beginning, but they got repetetive soon, wich is a bad sign

Controls: 4/10

The controls were horrible....
You had to keep pressing random buttons to find the good ones.
How do you open chests? I still do not know the button.
I just kept pressing random buttons and then hope the chest would open and spug out a small key.



Thanks for the effort though!

People find this review helpful!
