Here's brand new action-adventure game for    Entertainment System!

This is my entry for  NESDev Coding Competition 2022. I wanted to create a NES game that will be inspired by classic adventure NES game "Legend of Zelda",  but would look and feel different.  

You start your journey as a hero in Golden Forest and your task is to go through world slain' enemies, collecting items and helping humans in quests. 

There are :

  •  More than 70 rooms to go through
  • 4 worlds ( Golden Forest , Frosty Mountains, The Boneyard and Raven's Gate )
  • Items and weapons  to equip
  • A lot of enemies to slay
  • 3 quests to complete
  • Shops to buy items from

This game is suppose to be a demo and proof of concept for an action adventure game. I hope I will continue working on it and try to release a full  game with a lot more features.

Game can be played using emulator ( I recommend Mesen ) or using flash cart ( Everdrive ) on real NES device. I recommend setting blargg's shader and scanlines for more retro look when playing on emulator,  as game is intended and graphics are made  to be played on real CRT TV.

Game running on Famicom ( works on NES also )

I included an abbreviated playthrough of Ravne's Gate 
I included an abbreviated playthrough of Raven's Gate at 1:17:04. That ending was abrupt!

Very nice and user friendly game! More information about our German-language review can be found here (switch on automatic subtitles, if necessary). Subscription to our YouTube or Twitch channel is welcome!
