The Guardian Legend 30th anniversary

Hey guys! Today is The Guardian Legend 30th anniversary! Lets celebrate ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a nice surprice for you. There is update for some old remake project. So you can play that game by yourself. Download here – The Guardian Legend BlitzMax (rev15).zip

The Guardian Legend Legacy stream

The Guardian Legend Legacy stream recently played by some russian guy. If you did not know about that project then you can see what it is. I am not sure if they keep doing it because I am away from russian social network VKontakte.

In that game you can choose your primary weapon and your subweapon. The walking stages are randomly generated. So each time you start a new game it will have different map.

If you want to annoy author and tell him to continue the work then here is his youtube channel.

And here is this project page on facebook. You can find the download link there.

Or you can reach him on our forum!

Hidden gem puzzle

Hey people. So yestarday some guy congratulated me that our game is hidden gem puzzle on PCgamer. I am like what? It’s some algorithm that calculates Steam statistic and decide if some game is a hidden gem.

So our game is on the list! Really strange. But I am glad. Here is the list:

The Guardian Legend on Discord

Hey guys. Sorry I am so bussy. I created The Guardian Legend on Discord chat https://discord.gg/93C68CT. So join the chat and you can drop some intresting stuff there. Maybe a fan art or music for The Guardian Legend. Or maybe some intresting video or a game that could be featured on this page.

So yeah. I am still busy with promoting my game Orbox C. And it probably will take few more months. If you want to support me then you can try free version of the game. Orbox C Free. If you like it and buy it then please leave review on game’s Steam page. It’s great puzzle game so give the free version a try.

I want to make a video review of Contra: Revenge of The Red Falcon, and Contra Locked ‘N’ Loaded. And because I am too busy I don’t know when I could do that. I already recorded the walkthrough of the Revenge of The Red Falcon. Now I need record some voice review over it.

Revenge of The Red Falcon is modification of the NES Contra. It’s intresting. It’s much harder and levels are longer.

Locked ‘N’ Loaded I think not really modification but builded on some engine. But it’s like modification on Alien Wars. It lacks in graphic quality a bit but it’s OK. I would record some gameplay of it and make review. Basically it’s good 3.5/5 game, so you can give it a go without waiting for me. It’s free game anyway.

Bye for now ๐Ÿ™‚

Puzzle Game of The Year?

What do I mean by puzzle game of the year? I mean the game I developed together with other guy – Orbox C. But it’s not me who called it that way. BatBeard guy recorded a video with our game and put it into the title.

So I am busy this days with promotion of our game. I am suck at promotion so I contact youtubers and ask them to make a video with our game. Only recently I learned how to find correct youtubers who could agree. BatBeard was one of them.

I sent him a free game key so he could try the game for free. He launched the game on his stream and liked it. He called it high quality, compared with Popcap games(Zuma, Bejeweled, Plants vs Zombies) and admitted very good level design. I am not participated with him anyhow so it is pretty honest opinion.

Personally I could critisize the game enough. But the same time I am pretty sure it is really good puzzle game. One of the best, or maybe the best of this type. And yes it does have great level design because I have a lot of experience with that from Orbox, Orbox B, older Orbox C browser flash version and mobile, and users custom created levels. From all of this I had tons of feedback. That helped to see the game deeper and create really great puzzles in Orbox C on Steam with 210 levels. There should be more levels in future updates and new type of elements. If this game will become a Puzzle game of the year I will be shocked I guess. But also happy, obviously ๐Ÿ™‚

The video is pretty long. It is his first reaction on the game. He just took a part of the stream from Twitch and uploaded to youtube. So keep that in mind. It was recorded from the live stream so you can fast forward.

And by the way. If you want to try the game for free there is free version out there. With 30 unique levels. Check it out:

Compile Design Documents

Hey,

If you remember there was a video a year ago showing some docs from Compile. There were Guardian Legend, MUSHA, and Aleste Gaiden.

Now you can see those on the web. Pretty intresting. I have no idea what is written. It’s in japanese.

I think each of those pictures was the idea of each stage. And that is quite terrible! Just look at that nose, haha! Crazy!

Puzzles in Adventure mode

Have you played Crystalis? It’s a nice action RPG on NES. But there was a huge problem with the game. It has puzzles somewhat. But those puzzles don’t make any sense. So you just have no clue how to solve them. Now we have internet and can watch the walkthrough. But it’s reducing the fun I think!

Crystalis NES game

Those puzzles are like in old quests. Or modern point and click games. Where player have to click everything, and have to try every item he has on everything. Because there is no logic at all. You can’t guess the right thing to do!

On the other side, in our beloved The Guardian Legend the puzzles in adventure mode of the game are way too easy. All you do is just find the room with a hint and solution is pretty obvious right away.

Puzzles in Adventure mode

If there any chance some similar game or a sequel appears(and we know there was some attempts. And The Guardian Legend:Legacy project is also has some slow progression) then I would like to see some puzzles in there too. I think that was a neat feature. However they could be more clever and more intresting.

Optomon did a great job towards it with 2 of the puzzles in his The Guardian Legend: Secret Edition

“He afraids of light” made no sense at first but then I guessed what to do by myself. Yes took me like 15 minutes. But it really made sense, so finding the solution did bring satisfaction.

Such a thoughts about puzzles in The Guardian Legend adventure mode. Have a nice day!
