    Zelda-like RPG for the GBA. Although short, it's suppose to be an exciting action-adventure RPG game.
    The link to the download below is the latest that the developer has released (which was a minor fix, not released too long ago).

    Screen shots look good. Remind me of Guardian of Paradise, which I thought was REALLY good for a free game

    This looks awesome. Kind of makes me wonder if Black Sigil could've been done with PAlib/devkit instead of an official Nintendo SDK, lol.

    although the game play is very simple it is engaging and fun. it reminds me of "another world" because it was coded by 1 person over many years and the whole game can be played through in 1 sitting if you know where to go to get what.

    everyone should give it a go.

    I gave it a go and yeah it's decent gameplay-wise, but it feels empty and level design is bad. it feels like that thin red line is totally missing. you just wander around and don't really know what to do or where to go.

    I think this game is really well made, and looks/feels better than most homebrew, but yeah the polish is missing. and what's the point of enemies on the overworld besides getting in the way? I usually just avoid them

    if you just explore the over world you will find dungeons. gathering items as you go will reveal what areas you can go back and explore which were blocked the 1st time through. i don't see that as being a design flaw at all, but i will admit that the dungeons are at times simple to play through. it is clear that most of the 3years worth of development went into the game engine and probably waiting on sprites to be finished while real life got in the way.

    i think to really push the game over the line or into the next level would have been some weapon/armor upgrades, a few towns, some ppl to talk with, and some side quests. this way the simplistic dungeon design wouldn't have mattered and the game would have had atleast a 7hr play time. now that i know where everything is i can get through it in just a few quick hours.

    still for a homebrew, considering i'm playing it for free.. i can't complain at all. i hope tolbert goes back on his word and decides to up grade the game and really finish it off.

    How does this compare to the first Zelda? It's supposedly a knock-off.

    I wouldn't call it a knock-off ...

    It's a top-down action-adventure, with real-time combat & item-use ...

    There were games before Zelda that looked like this ...


    Give it a cash injection, and you will see a decent product ...
