  • Demo area featuring a town, 5 simple areas and the first palace.
  • XP and level system.

  • Music and sound effects.

Notes

This is an early Work In Progress, only a "teaser demo" has been released so far. I'm currently working on a full Gameplay Demo of the first area of the game, which will feature most of the final gameplay concepts. There is also a tile, meta-tile, sprite and level editor being built to make working on the game easier. The teaser demo was built using this editor - the graphics, tiles, maps, start point data and teleport data. The editor can export the data in a format that gets compiled into the final hex file - none of the maps, transitions or starting points are hardcoded. I will release the editor and engine so other people can make Zelda 2 style action/adventure games on this platform. To track the progress, visit this thread: [1].
