At long last... the epic difficulty lays defeated before me. Would've been extremely hard without premium items, I might try a run without sometime. Currently I have 295 chests and 68 secrets, but only 169 equips. According to the high scores, I'm missing 5. Anyone know where they are? I have SCOURED the map to find everything. Looks like a bow, 2 hats and 2 armors.
Very good, classic Zelda-style gameplay. But I'm thinking, if this is a game about morality, couldn't there be a separate branch-off after you meet the Oracle where you don't kill the relic monsters? Kind of leads to the "Oh crap, now I'm a bad guy" scenario, and the only way to redeem yourself is to collect a bunch of trinkets? It makes for a fun game, but I feel there's much more that could be done with this.
My only issue is the lack of a save feature, meaning you have to complete the preview in one sitting. Of course, it gets pretty quick after beating the early levels about 3 times before winning. Can't wait to see the completed game!
Being an audio artist, I can really appreciate this game b/c I can put my own MP3s in and play them. Check me out on Newgrounds (same name) and try the Alchemist's Study, it's a really good one for the ruby achievement.
This badge has been plaguing me since I joined. Never been able to do it. Logging on and seeing badge of the day I thought "oh f-". So I thought what the heck, one quick run before breakfast. I got it the first try. ...What. But seriously, improve the music quality. I had my ears raped for forgetting to turn down my headphones.
