The Legend of Akata - philomory - Competition Entry
A Zelda-esque 2D adventure game. Fight slimes, explore the world, find the 9 Keys of Akata, and 'bring to peace'. Alas, the ending leaves much to be desired - there was supposed to be much more plot.
Controls are simple, arrow keys move, Z attacks, P pauses. Enemies will often drop hearts (which restore health) or coins (which do nothing, but are very shiny) when defeated.
Created in Ruby using Gosu and Chingu, with sfxr for sound and Autotracker-C for music. Graphics done in Pixen, except the title screen, which was made in Photoshop. A big thanks to Ippa, not just for creating Chingu, but also for kindly packaging up an .exe for me.
(Note: to run from source, have ruby 1.9.2, then
* gem install chingu
* ruby LD19.rb
(Also, our submission system seems to dislike Umlauts. Who knew?)
