Zelda like

Really fun and as someone before me mentioned it has a strong Legend of Zelda games element and thats one reason I liked it the controls are easy to handle and respond well, You have showcased us something fantastic here today with this Game style it does well all on its own keeping the creative elements together and flowing well and those are the good submissions i love seeing anyways nice game

Another pretty fun game of yours. The sprites in this game remind me of some of the old Legend of Zelda games as well as Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest and maybe some of the very early Final Fantasy games. Your games make me want to be inspired to make my own small games. If you have any suggestions or advice on what to do please let me know. Even if I don’t ever make super big mainstream games I would just like a little advice if that’s okay with you. Again I played this on my phone as well and it’s a tad bit easier to play on mobile than Space Huggers but can be a little tricky at times. I look forward to playing more of your games and hope to see more get made.

Thank you. For this one I was most inspired by Link's Awakening. My advice is to check out my open source game engine LittleJS. I think it is the perfect size to get started with and includes everything you need...

cool

ahaha I remember this game being in the wrong cartige XD nice game though

Pretty good once I stopped using my track pad! The unpredictability sometimes of the rangs is annoying but actually surprisingly helpful at times.
I think some of the medals are wonky, since the warp zone, 100 coins and 5 rangs didn't unlock for me. But big rang and level 5 did.
