When I was about 12 years old I went through a phase of playing weird text based online RPGs like hobo wars and this pokemon thingy.

This is a little something I put together in a few days kind of inspired by those.

How to play;

-Enter the battle area to fight and earn gold and XP

-Each time you level up, you'll earn a skill point which you can use to upgrade a stat on the player stats screen

-Use gold to buy shields, swords and health potions

-Swords slightly improve your attack, and shields slightly improve your defence

-Attacks have a 1/10 chance of being critical


-5 swords

-5 shields

-3 stats to improve and upgrade

-randomly generated coms to fight

-gambling and other extras

-20 NG medals


Thanks for playing!

I plan to expand the game a little in the future- such as adding more locations and the like, as long people kinda seem to like it., so suggestions are welcome!

+100 enemy levels

+In-game instructions

+A paint shop to change the appearance of your penguin

(Also sorry for all the typos. They're...um...intentional. To recapture that...um..vibe...)

cool game

Fun one

so the game is pretty fun some of the gear is pretty good, I got a good vibe from it A decent game here I was most amazed with all the little stuff this game had to offer pretty interesting lots of nice little details here and there, I think some improved gear like besides the sword and sheild could have other elements that help but overall this was pretty entertaining and amusing I was gald with the outcome So this is a game was nice, but overall a fun adventure game


one of the most nostalgic games for me, ever


I enjoyed playing this. But you will quickly see the trick to win: put your skill points in attack and one-hit lower level opponents (higher level will most likely one-hit you as they attack first).

As the hint link is dead:
You get "Golden Astronaut" in City Square -> Alleyway -> Lick the pavement
