It is full playthough in TGL mode with zero death. But the main reason I share this is the first 2.5 minutes. It has very nice intro. It’s like a mini review of the game.
Hey guys! Today is The Guardian Legend 30th anniversary! Lets celebrate 🙂
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
Let me know what you think. You can find the topic here if you want to leave a feedback for the author: http://theguardianlegend.com/forum/index.php/topic,15.150.html
Happy New Year everyone!
It was a tough year for me. But whatever. I hope everyone doing OK. If you want to talk with fans online there is discord chat – https://discord.gg/93C68CT
What can we expect from the next year?
Interview with founder of Compile – Moo Niitani. He was also the director of The Guardian Legend.
The TGL inspired game Steel Seraph further developement. You cah check some demo videos here – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0GCWNnJMT1f0-41mmXaqVg/videos . We also have a forum topic where you can ask from author – here.
Hopefully the project Zodiac: Story of the Guardian will be finished. We haven’t heard from the author for a while. His project is late beta, so it’s kinda fully playable. The project heavely inspired by TGL and Metroid. We also have a forum topic where you can ask from author – here.
Hey guys! This seems to be The Guardian Legend best speedrun so far. 52:24
If you looking for the gameplay tactics then this can be good guide.
Also you might see some tricks. Like skiping the transform animation by holding select. He dies to get back to some point faster.
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!
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 🙂
My thoughts were far away for a while. But now is a good reason to write something. I can say this again and again. That we need to bring more modern presentation to the site. How to do that? I have no idea and have no much time to do research. But I hope with time that can be managed. Would be great if some people could help me a little.
So what’s new there around The Guardian Legend? First of all this cover version of the title screen music. It’s a quite nice one. Also author mentions that he likes the game a lot and have nostalgia feeling about it. Which is good as he made this music with more care than just to get attention around retro buzz.
If you wonder where is this picture of the Miria from, it’s from here: thirdhalf.net/sad2-36-another-compilation/
Also the author replied me about the other picture there. He said it was just some doodle drawing from the stream request. So. I guess we will not get this one more than a draft. Which is probably is okay. This is a bit like a parody looking one 🙂
Thanks everyone who is around The Guardian Legend. If you have some ideas of site improvements, let me know! See ya!
Fore example that bow pose looks like for some powerful strike. That would work only in walking adventure mode. The other intresting pose is for softer and maneuver flying. She could fly to any XYZ direction with this. And very fast change the direction. And the third pose, I don’t know. Could be some other sort of fire mode or cutting the walls.
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!

Here is TGL Secret Edition Corridor Rush Mode by Charly. I asked him share some impressions. He written about the whole hack tho:
Well, just like the original version, you will be given all the items if you have a certain amount of money (or score… I don’t know), just the same as the original one, except that you will have all the weapon earlier than the original one. There are a lot of differences in this version and the original one. Optomon sure modified a lot of things here such as the map, the bosses (green Fleepa, orange Zib Zub, blue & red Teramute, green Eyegore, Green Grimgrin, Orange Optomon, Green IT – which used to to be the final boss of the original version, Orange Clawbot, Orange Bombarder), and also he add some big bosses as mini-bosses (there’s only one in the original version) to increase the difficulty. The best mini-boss in this version are probably the Red Optomon and Red Grimgrin.
All the way to remove all the 10 seals are totally different (except for the 1st one). The repeated weapon and items were replaced with Blue Lander or Red Lander, the shop (buy 1 of 3 items) will be harder to buy, the Corridor 21 background is different, the musics in Area 5 and Area 9 are changed, the background of the Boss Rush (Corridor 21) is different but I prefer this one more than the desert theme, and finally the different final boss : 3 Gliders with one blue, one orange and one red which will be activated by defeating the 1st 2 gliders. This final boss is much difficult than the original one. Be patient, make your way to dodge their pattern, the missiles are the big threats in this case. Can you believe that 3 gliders are the final boss in this game which make a lot of gamers have difficulty in beating the game? Probably yes, the red one moves like a berserker and release 2 red missiles which is hard to dodge. The longest boss is the Orange Bombarder, which took me about 5 mins to defeat.
