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.

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.

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.

Super Clash Bros

Super Clash Bros is another arena fighting game with characters from many retro games. Author claims that he is gonna add over 70 characters to the game. But the game will also have level progress adventure mode. So basically you can pick character and play the game of the other character. Like you take Scorpion from Mortal Kombat and play Sonic The Hedgehog levels.

The game is in development and nobody knows when it will be finished. Maybe in several years. You can try the demo here: https://gamejolt.com/games/super-clash-bros/336304

The author of the game created a topic by himself on the forum. So you can ask him anything: http://theguardianlegend.com/forum/index.php/topic,2072.0.html

The Guardian Legend – Sequel or Remake

Hello everyone! Have you ever wanted to play The Guardian Legend sequel or remake? Well, of course you did! And here it is!

Ladies and gentlemen please welcome The Guardian Legend: Shadow of Naju

The Guardian Legend: Shadow of Naju. Sequel or remake.

This game was made by one guy. He started to work on it in 2010. And he finally finished the game now. The game uses sprites material from many other games. It has kinda mash up content. But it works pretty fine enough. The music is also taken from many other games. The music choices are quite strange however. But that’s author’s taste. The game has all classic weapons and 2 new ones.

Below I will drop you some game screenshots. So you could see what I am talking about.

The game has two languages – English and Russian. So do not be confused that my screenshots are in Russian.

The download links could be found in our forum. You also can leave a feedback to the author. So he could know what you liked or didn’t liked about the game.

The game was updated to version 2.0. The starting fire rate changed to faster(was very slow before). There is added possibility to teleport between zones. And map now has marks for items and bosses.

Have fun! I completed the game and it was quite enjoyable! If you haven’t played the original game then a short description. This can be described as some specific metroidvania. You walk around the big map collecting weapons and fighting mini bosses and walk inside corridors. When you walk into corridor you transform into starfighter and now you fly and shoot enemies.

Game similar to The Guardian Legend

Some people wonder. What are some games that are similar to The Guardian Legend? So suddenly I discovered such game. It’s on FDS(Famicom Disc System) and it’s called – Akuu Senki RAIJIN. I would say it’s more similar to predecessor – Guardic. If you did not know The Guardian Legend is actually a sequel to Guardic. It even has a name like “Another Legend of Guardic” in manual. And some Japanese fan arts put ALG on their arts.

As I understood player can can decide to transform between mecha and starship. But it’s possible only on certain platforms. Player can fly in all 4 directions and walk also in 4 directions. So he can’t walk diagonally.

I do not know the details because I just discovered this game. I was browsing youtube for recent The Gaurdian Legend videos and luckily there was video “The Guardian Legend But Worse”. Sometimes people asking what are the games similar to The Guardian Legend? So this might be really interesting as this game is similar to both TGL and Guardic(prequel of TGL).

I would say that the game looks nice. But the gameplay seems not really good. I also think that it would be hard to understand what to do in the game and how to progress. There is no map to help. Maybe there is some helpful manual comes with the disc? Necessary instructions often contained in manuals back then . Music is almost always the same and there is no boss theme when the bosses appear.

However the game doesn’t seem terribly bad. So that’s it, this is the similar game, please welcome – Akuu Senki RAIJIN

Things on backpack

A long time ago there was a topic where someone asking what are those things on backpack?

Back then I did not think about that much. And did not tried to find out. So. Recently I opened the Japanese manual and I finally realized. Those things on backpack was another engines/jets! So we all know a pair of engines are inside her boots. But did you know there was another engines over the back? I didn’t and I think many did not realized this. So here is a picture showing exactly those engines:

I hope you enjoyed this little revelation about The Guardian Legend game just like me 🙂
