Good Game This is a Legend !!!, But Why Wen I Die Always the Game Restart (Damn) But Really good Game Thanks 4 it i Wait a Good Game On A Bored Day. LOL. Thx And Good Job!
Are you kidding me? The boss is sure hard, but it's far from impossible. You know the orbs at the side of the room? Destroy those and his shields will be down. From then on, the old man will be easy to kill since he doesn't move and many of his attacks are fairly predictable. Plus, each time you die, you recover with full health, meaning you can use your swords as projectiles. He also grows huge after this. At first, it seems really impossible, but his attacks and movements become very predictable and you just need to know when to strike. On top of all that, it's very easy to build up the rage meter (unless you suck at predicting moves). You should be able to beat him after a few tries. If you keep on dying, it proves that it isn't the game's fault, it's you're own stupidity.
Aside from that, I absolutely adore the NES references and the levels are fun and creative. The gameplay, though hard, is unique and ever changing so you never get bored. This is one of the best flash games I've ever played hands down. There are glitches here and there and some parts maybe a little limiting, but it's not to the point where it annoys the player. All I wish is to ask for a sequel, because there are tons of more ways you can incorporate NES references and levels (although you pretty much nailed most of the good ones on your first try). Keep up the good work.
Now I'm pretty sure I would have hated Nintendo if I had one as a child! This game is awfuly hard. Every level has it's unfairness, the Zelda level being the most unfair so far (probably becouse I couldn't get further). That level is simply impossible: how am I supposed to beat the old man without dieing?! It's giant form would be though enough alone becouse it gets barely hurt a bit by my attacks and it's very rarely attackable too. It would be very hard even if I had my ranged attack but I lose it by getting hit just once! But I'm supposed to beat this giant after I've beaten a though wizard and 3 swordsmen, wich deplets at least half of my health! That's fucking impossible!
If this was the standard difficulty of the NES then all the people who have a nostalgy for that crap are freakin' masochists!
one of newgrounds best
Very tight controls, and nice concept. One of the best games on Newgrounds.
