EDIT: Ver 1.5 is up. I've tweaked the running and braking a little. Movement should be more fluid now. I've also enlarged the offscreen window, so NPC popup should be nonexistant now. Enjoy and keep up with the feedback!

Sorry for the outline thing. It won't appear again.

LEFT and RIGHT ARROW to move
Z to jump, double jump and glide
DOWN to duck and stop gliding
UP to save in front of a SavePointMan
X to fight (when the time comes)
P to pause

Cool game but when I was up on the gnome's ship I played the coin game, collected every coin and got over 401 coins but it never ended. But whenever I get 400 it ends and the Gnome said get over 300(400) coins and you win a price and I have yet to see it.

I seriously would love to play this game but it is STILL unresponsive. When I finally got passed the tree with disappearing ledges, I went to glide to the next level only to fall all the way down because the character didn't register the jump. I went back to the tree and have been there for way too long because I've been trying to get back up to the ledge. I can no longer play this game. Please retry to tweak the settings because I really would like to continue this game.

Great game. Has a few glitches. freezes quite a bit: while running, crouching.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

I was quite enjoying this game...

Unfortunately at some point in the cave level, after jumping past those rolling rocks up to a chest, the last jump I double jumped and flew up and out of the level, through the hole the rocks were falling from. I was able to "glide" offscreen and scroll across the entire level. It was impossible to get back down the hole. So I refreshed the game, and it put me right back at the start, with none of my abilities, despite having saved plenty of times. Sorry but that put me right off playing.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I think I've found a glitch. When you glide on the water slopes, instead of your character falling downwards, they'll "fall" upwards before gliding upwards for a couple of seconds.

Regardless, this is a great game. Love the Zelda reference.
