The Story of Zeldo. Lank wakes up to a fairy and realizes he needs to fight monsters and save the princess.
sword -> Hold Z then arrow key.
boomerang -> Hold X then arrow key.
Originally, The Story of Zeldo was going to be a small project that would only take a few hours/days. Though I wasn't going to put much time into it, I couldn't stop working on it and ended up spending a couple weeks on it.
This cartridge is loaded, it's using almost all of the music, sound, map, sprite, token, and character allocations. This is the largest pico 8 project I have done yet and this is the first time I've run into space limits. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I had making it!
Check out my github page for comments within the code.
Really great game with an amazing soundtrack! Love the story and the map! All the hidden chests and places are awesome! It a truly adventurous game! Here's one thing I might change though.. I dunno If I like restarting the whole game every time you die. Sure every time you restart you get better, and better with practice, but maybe if there was just like 1 checkpoint before the cannondwarf boss battle. I have yet to complete the game, but I've been seconds from beating cannondwarf. Unfortunately every time I get close, I just end up dying before I can finish... Sorry If I'm complaining too much. Don't get me wrong, It's a really fun game!
Hey Listen! :>
so you're compiling all your .p8 and launching the resulting file on pico8, is it possible to skip the loading screen or do you have to wait? i checked on https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php?page=manual but saw nothing about skipping
I'm loving it! I'm making a Zelda clone myself, luckily this one is different enough. Though at one time I did have the name "Zeldo" as title in mind, but I changed that too.
Sorry, I had to hack your cart to finish the game (admit it, it's quite challenging), but that's a great ending!
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!
I have been looking for some code to help me with a control mechanic in my game- the 'hold z and arrow key for boomerang' is the closest I've found so far... I'd love to talk to you about it if you have the chance.
