    At long last after lots of sneaky screenshots and vids, Lupi has released a demo of his homebrew Zelda platformer:
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I have played the tutorial of the demo and its very impressive indeed. It takes sprites and music from many of the Zelda games, and features our favourite Link items and weapons such as the bow and arrow, bombs, boomerang and sword spin.

    This is absolutly awesome and I can't wait for the final!

    Note: For M3 SD users, launch the game with START not A.

    Looks good, but may I suggest adding some shadows to the ground to improve the perspective.

    It`s really good. Best looking homebrew game I've ever seen. But the level, where those spikes follow you up isn`t beatable. You have to go through it without fault. I nearly did it but dat the very end I died again [​IMG]

    Wow, this is the best homebrew on DS I played so far. Nintendo should hire Lupi and make a commercial game out of it [​IMG]

    He needs to change the level sprites into something more interesting. Like a plane for example. And probably changing Link to Samuel L. Jackson.

    ... and let me guess, the enemies... would be mother f**king snakes! [​IMG]

    Yeah, he should probably just stick with link.

    this game is great, one of the best homebrew games ive seen. the level with the rising spikes is passable just takes some practice, and the boss is pretty hard too but nonetheless this is an amazing game, bring on more levels

    awesome homebrew game! thanks.... how do you pass the level with the rising spiked floor? I get the key and up to the next platform then I die cuz the spikes and the ceiling squash me. I tried to hit the switch in the left corner but i cant seem to hit it. [​IMG]

    Not bad, although the sword slash looks surprisingly weak with that "paint drawn" look of the slash. Played through it, it's pretty good for homebrew.
