Hunters: Relic of Stars - Stage 5. Having retrieved the third orb, Carina and Avior head to the GPF Headquarters.

Play stage 1 here: portal/view/566055
Play stage 2 here: portal/view/566291
Play stage 3 here: portal/view/566564
Play stage 4 here: portal/view/566734
Play stage 6 here: portal/view/567109

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.
Update: Version 2 is now up. I made Polmire easier on easy.


Liked it a lot more than stage 4

Nice length, not too hard. The zero-g part was a nice touch.

The graphics are simple but not too bad, controls could use some improvement to make diagonal shooting easier. Voice acting quality varies a bit, but generally isn't all that great. "Ooh!" and "Aah!" don't sound much like shouts of pain.

The amount of decent level content is what earns this a good score.

As for people struggling with Polmire, the spider boss at the end of zero-g phase:
Don't bother with the submachinegun, it's useless against him. The shotgun works and so doethe pistol and the bazooka, but because timing is important I suggest using either the shotgun or the pistol. Note that the pistol only works when at least half charged.
With the shotgun you can probably just stand under the eye and jump and shoot every time the eye opens. I used the pistol, dodging the first eye shot by jumping and firing diagonally right after, hitting on the second opening.
Hitting the eye pushes Polmire back and eventually off the edge, push him off three times to destroy his legs. When he comes up for the lastt time, avoid the upper machinegun by just standing, then jump over the bursts from the lower one. After that just hit the eye one more time and you're done with him.

what a good game

i really like this series and i think you did a great job creating this, so i hope you make a hunters relic of the stars 2 xD, but this is my problem after you beat the spider boss what are you meant too do? cause i cant seem too leave the room after you beat the boss can anyone help lol thanks?

Rhete responds:

Does the gate not open after you kill him and get the laser upgrade? If it's not opening that's a weird bug no one has had.

If it does open, you run left one room, then wall jump off the center elevator twice to get high enough to exit the room.


The only part I didn't like was the gravity part. I like the spider boss though. I beat him with the shotgun! I actually found this way easier because I could just stand under him, aim up constantly, and jump and shoot every time he opens his eye. Just gotta work on timeing though.,

Hard, but still good.

The game is pretty good, but I didn't like the zero-g segment or the spider boss. Both were annoying an tedious. I had to dial back to Easy mode just to defeat Polmire (the aforementioned spider boss). The shmup section was fun, though. Now the final episode awaits!

Pretty hard, but good

I cant go through level 4 then i give a vote of 7. The moves were hard to find then i 1st founded how to jump, shoot, big shoot ect.
