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:
Play stage 3 here:
Play stage 4 here:
Play stage 5 here:
Play stage 6 here:

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.

If you have a PC Gamepad, I highly recommend using the Joy2Key Software. You can download it: here:

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:
This is a bug with some browsers/systems and there's really nothing I can do to fix it.

Good enough game as of now

Story, music, and voice acting is great, but the graphic and gameplay (like on stopping repetitiveness and making the game more fun) needs A LOT of work..

About graphic, I'm not expecting some 3D, state-of-art craft, but the whole graphic and movement just looks awkward and bad.

Decent I guess

But you folks really should have stuck with Kirbopher as your animator.

controls are akward

just the fact that you have to press x and z while moving with the wasd controls makes it feel akward to me, maybe have the m key open up the map instead and have the jump button moved to space, and as for the shooting button....i cant really give a good one for that :( maybe left mouse click?

Rhete responds:

err, if you're moving with WASD, you should be using JKL to attack/jump/change weapon. I'll edit the comments to be a bit more clear on that.

I might be nit-picking but...

Well, basically what everyone else said, weird graphics, gameplay is OKAY, and the voices are good/nice.

But whats with that second boss? I can't play it anymore, because I can't beat her.

The first phase? Sure, thats cool, but the second? Well, the laser going downward was easy to dodge, but if I messed up, she landed like 3 hits! Then, the fist SMASHES me in the face cuz I got hit and couldn't move, THEN, the diagonal laser hits me for two damage!BAM! I'm dead!

So... could be better, but is ok.

Good Game.

The music was great, but the graphics were too simple and colorful, and the controls were awkward. There should be a way to change the controls around, to the players liking. I didn't get very far in the game, because this made me want to play super metriod really badly.

The game was alright, if you can get used to the controls.
