Blaster Master Zero 2

Lets have a look at Blaster Master Zero 2. A sequel to Blaster Master Zero. This time with traveling between planets. It looks great. Has many weapons and upgrades. Funny thing with charging your tank with fall down from bigger height. Tho the guy coming out of the tank seems to die too easy when fall down from a height that’s not looking so big.

I am sure everyone here thinking the same thing. That’s what also could be done with The Guardian Legend 🙂 Hahaha!(hiding crying) Who knows if this ever happens, but yeah. By the way, if you did not know, there is fan made sequel Guardian Legend: Shadow of Naju. It’s not that professional as BMZ2, but it’s not bad at all, I liked it.

Rygar Vengeance

Rygar on NES was one of those games that felt like entire another world. It felt really big at that time. Great mysterious atmosphere and exploration feeling. Ed Findlay trying to create some kind of Rygar remake or sequel. He called it Rygar Vengeance and it can be found on his site https://www.retrogamer3.com/ . In case site not works he also has his youtube channel.

 At the time I write this the game is beta version 1.4. Below I post some screenshots. And the only short gameplay I found is in the Ed’s youtube teaser video 3 years ago. I’ll post it below screenshots.

you are LANCER TWO

A guy Stuffman on tumblr posted quite ambitious claim of game project inspired by The Guardian Legend.

you are LANCER TWO, weapon of mass destruction and property of the AUTONOMOUS SPACE-TRAVELING ROBOT ORGANIZATION, a military branch of the GALACTIC COUNCIL. you are a cutting-edge fighting machine, capable of merging with your TRUSTY LANCE to become a tiny FTL-capable spacecraft, designed to jet into the deepest reaches of space and fight alone. you may or may not have feelings. (if you do, it’s plausibly deniable).

your current mission is to travel to a mining colony at the fringe of the galaxy, which has been invaded by the dreaded VON NEUMANNS. theorized to have already infested much of Andromeda, this self-replicating menace must not be allowed to have a foothold into our galaxy!

the GALACTIC COUNCIL will take no risks with the VON NEUMANNS; upon arriving in the star system, the BLACK HOLE BOMB inside you arms itself. should you be defeated and fail your mission, it will detonate, taking you and everything in the star system with it.

the VON NEUMANNS are already doomed. can you save this lonely planet, and yourself?

(she has a more “civilian” look, but in true NES fashion, you can’t see it until you beat the game.)

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.

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

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!

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.

The Guardian Legend on Discord

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.

Contra Locked 'N' Loaded

Bye for now 🙂
