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.

Wow, this is an excellent attempt to bring Zelda - oops, I mean, Zeldo! - to the PICO-8.
Great sound and gfx - congrats and well done! :D

:: Super Fun!

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

P#39964 2017-04-26 12:24


Hmm. I don't know what you're talking about with loading screen. I just used the cat command and a makefile on linux to compile all my .p8 files. Then I loaded the resulting file in pico 8.

Lots of fun! A great distraction on a Friday afternoon waiting for work to end.

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 great, love the names Zeldo and Lank and Canondorf LOL. Fantastic. Is Lank....lanky? Like an even taller and thinner version of Link? :D

Woow ! Really nice ! Love the soundtrack :)

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.

Great work!
