Arrow Keys - Move / Aim
Z - Shoot
X - Jump
C - Change Weapons
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: 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.


Whoa now

Where'd this bug come from that wasn't in the last chapters? Try to remember what you've changed, if anything. Because something must have, if it's in this one, but not the others. And it's not exclusive to IE. Firefox still has this issue.

Nice chapter though. Shotgun is a blast ( oh god X| ).


I think you should try pixel art style in the next version, frame-by-frame sprites etc. Then this would be a complete gem. Pixel Joint.com is good for inspiration, advice and knowledge if you don't know what I'm talking about. Well, even the pixel art section in NG goes, but the advice is pretty good as shit here.

cant it

in the ocean chase level how do you hit the small spaceship in the top left hand corner cause without diagonal shooting i dont see a way of hitting it? thanks
P.S make a relic of the stars 2 =)


It isn't a horrible game like some people are saying, but to be honest this really wasn't front page material. The graphics could be improvable and and then there is the constant problem that enemies respawn instantly in screens where I cleared all the enemies and come back just to see them respawned and back where I left them. C'mon.
I enjoyed the storyline, which was relatively original and a new experience for me in a platformer game. However the gameplay itself wasn't incredibly exciting and I found myself bored after five minutes.
I do give a thumbs up to the music though. Great choices.
The graphical improvements could be made through shading carefully or slight movement while idle such as blinking, shifting a bit etc.
Anyway, the idea, and overall goal I can see you're trying to achieve is excellent. But keep in mind the flaws and try harder. Keep up the good work.

Overall Score:
Gameplay: Slightly repititive, and nothing too new or exciting.
Graphics: Definately can be improved. Shading, idling movement or smoke from guns is a start.
Sound: Great Music choices and the sound effects were....bearable. Cool voice acting though.
StoryLine: I enjoyed it and it made me want to continue and ignore most flaws.

End Score: 7/10 4/5
Please don't take offense from this. I'm simply offering advice and ideas to see a more awesome flash than this one. I encourage you to go on. (People are probably gonna mark this as useless review anyway. Geez.)

Best wishes,

as far as i've played it, the game itself is fun. the controls, music, and voice acting are pretty decent, and its a fun game to play.. but the graphics.. they're terrible.
