Lovely cover art! I'm still playing, but I want to mention two things: I find it härd tö reäd the text with äll the ümläüts and maybe the font itself. The other things is, when I got the shield I had to press a button to make the text go away, but this also triggered the shield so I lost 1 spirit.
Cool game so far and very polished!

Oh wow... just started playing with it and you did an amazing job. I love the Zelda feeling of it... the breakable tile animations, secrets, ...
Please, make a small tutorial on how you did your skeleton guards AI ! I swear there are following the player. Love it!

Thank you guys! I can do pixel art better than I can actually draw, so I did the cover image with assets straight from the game and photoshop.

Thank you Dale! My AI script isn't terribly efficient and I was planning on trying to rewrite it at some point, but I am happy to post it.

Thank you Dirk! Yeah, I noticed (especially on an actual NES) the text may be hard to read. I will probably drop an umlaut and maybe the shadow. Also, thanks for the heads up about the shield. It doesn't engage when you talk to NPCs after getting it, but I think I know why it does initially and will fix it. :)

Played last night... it was very pleasant... even more than that, I had a lot of fun! The graphics are really good, I love all the animation details. It helps to create this living world.
I agree with Dirk, the font is difficult to read.

Generally speaking I love umlauts though ^^

I beat the boss in the cellar and must say I got goose bumps! Really disgusting! Great job! XD
It also didn't help that I'm not too keen on big spiders to say it nicely :-)
The small ones are somewhat cute though :-)

Thanks guys! The character Ella actually fidgets and blinks her eyes a bit if you stand still.

And that's good to hear Dirk! I actually had to watch a bunch of spider gifs to figure out how to animate the legs because spiders have a very specific gait.
Check out my game!
