Edit 2:
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?


There's a trick or two to every boss...

W00T! I got the turd of the week trophy AND all ten hearts! Now if only I had some sense of fulfillment...

9 out of 10 because of repetetive gameplay (EXCEPT the bosses, it was a fun challenge to figure them out) and a glitch that happened twice where I would try to kill a flash and it would just stand there and quit moving.

For those who need a leg up, the trick to A-Bot is to keep your distance as best you can (which is hard, I know) and to stand beside or behind him when he throws the cd's. Don't worry, aside from Strawberry Clock, he is the hardest boss.

1 problem

The game is good but the problem A-bot IS HARD!!!! please make him easie thats all I have to say.

kinda bad

It looks ok, design is nice, but the gameplay is total shit.
You kill a "flash", go to another scene, go back to the
other scene and the flash is there again.

Good game anyways.
