Warning: This is a very CPU-intensive game!


Extra Notes:

Edit 3:
100+ Reviews! The first 100 are all answered! I may or may not continue answering reviews--we'll see.

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


Version Updates:

1.6 - Enemies are invincible for even less time, Pico bounces back even less, and Pause menu is now available when you continue after getting killed by a boss.

1.3 - Enemies are invincible for less time

1.2 - Bounce from getting hit is less, and gameover screen buttons appear immediately after the animation

1.0 - Game released


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?

It doesn't always work, but you can try hiding in the lower-left corner. As long as he doesn't unleash his sound wave attack right next to you (which is a 1 in 3 chance) he will miss.
