Rollie (NES)

Rollie is a new NES game by the guy under nickname Optomon/Optovania. He is the creator of The Guardian Legend: Secret Edition. And also a number of nice mods. Now he created his very own game from scratch.

He started a kickstarter company here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/optovania/rollie-a-new-game-for-the-classic-nintendo-nes
So you can back the project right now if you want. Or wait when kickstarter campaign ends.

Zaider – Battle of Peguss

Another game similar to ours Zaider – Battle of Peguss (超戦士ザイダーバトルオブペガス). You can walk out of the ship and walk in somewhere. I don’t know details. There is no walkthrough around. The game is on MSX 1986. Ability to walk inside buildings seems interesting. I read that weapon(s?) can be upgraded. The terrible scrolling is not in this game only. It is quite common for MSX games back then.

Also on nicovideo I found probably a remix of the title theme. Sounds nice so I adding it.

Sunfost style

What if The Guardian Legend was made by Sunsoft? It would sound something like this:

The youtube video sounds a bit like lower quality mp3. So here is link to soundcloud, in case you are interested: https://soundcloud.com/paul-haas-752206774/area-34-8-the-guardian-legend-famitracker-2a03-sunsoft-style-cover

A little bit more music found today. This one is not so good but it’s OK. It’s rather like medley with various songs from the game:

JJJJ upgrade!

So a lot of you probably heard of JJJJJJJ password in The Guardian Legend. But there is a problem. You are sent to the Area 8 without the cross key. So you can’t go out.

Today I’ve got an idea. I went to the password generator and inserted the JJJJJJJJJ code. And then I set the cross key check box. So it generated the new password which does the same but with the key! And the main reason I want to share the password is because it has only 2 characters changed. So it’s also very easy one.

 JJJJ JJJJ  JJJJ JJJJ
JJJJ JJIJ JJJJ JJOJ

So now there is a question is this setup can be beaten? Maybe someone will check that out and share the result on the forum or in the discord chat: https://discord.gg/93C68CT

[EDIT]well I checked it and – the corridor 9 is completed but there is no key for zone 10. Which means this – even if there was cross key then JJJJ still was not possible to beat.
I came back to the password generator and added the missing key. Which makes it not really the thing which we would want. But, if someone wants:
JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJ
JJJJ JJMJ JJJJ JJCJ

This one has the bended rectange key.

Fan art based on Japanese cover art

Very nice fan art based on the original Japanese cover art. Or maybe drawn over.
The Japanese cover was made in somewhat H. R. Giger style. This one also has something from that creepy feeling of Giger’s works (most known for xenomorph from Alien franchise).

Full size picture can be found in our gallery along with other great fan art.

I think if the game was in this kind of style then it would be creepy. Or even a horror. Not sure if I would want that.

Password with strange chips

A guy shared some password. He found it randomly in childhood. This password starts with 2615 chips. But! When you take the red lander the max chips do not increase. He also not sure if the game is possible to finish from this point. It was long ago. He said that it’s probably the one where there is no final boss. If you test this, then join discord chat and tell people how it worked: https://discord.gg/93C68CT or make a post on the forum: http://theguardianlegend.com/forum/

On the image below, you can see the password. And on the other one the coordinate of the closest red lander.
P.S.
User Tishero on discord, reported that after beating the 10’s corridor the final one not appears. So this is unbeatable.

Art inspired by our game

Sometimes there is art inspired by our loved game. I think maybe I should create a specific gallery section for this. There is not much fan stuff going on currently. But here is some music loop I created from this video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQF2j6pF5HY – it has only 1 cycle of the music. The music is from the password section and the final flight as well.
