This is the first game of my Equin Trilogy, Equin Adventures! The second one, Equin Village, is already up here on The Daily Click so this one's going to join it.
One night while you were out hunting, a squad of Shadow Demons led by the evil ghost of Lord Kul ransacked your house and kidnapped your brother Serkious! They flew him to the far reaches of the Far North. The place is inaccessible by foot or boat, so the only way to get there is to locate and touch the magical ruinstone to teleport you there.
But it won't be easy. To hurt Kul you'll need a weapon of tremendous power- The Shadow Sword. Kul had broken the weapon into 3 pieces and gave one to each of his Black Knights. Your job is to descend into the sword dungeons and fight the knights, taking their sword piece. Once completed, you'll use this mighty weapon to take down Kul once and for all and rescue your brother!
*A randomly made game world every time you start a new game.
*An automap that keeps track of where you've been in the Black Woods and the woods' underworld areas.
*Three complex sword dungeons filled with enemies and of course, the Black Knights.
*Shops that will sell you chicken legs, potions, shields, crystal balls, torches, and more!
*Break just about every object in the game- trees, barrels, crates, plants, beds, tables and more to discover secret items and areas!
There's a lot of info in the readme that ships with the game, but here's some hints.
*Use the cursor to click on any object or space in the game screen to get a more detailed message about it.
*If it rains, the rain will make your sword wet and less effective. Also, a heavy rainstorm will make a crystal ball go haywire and become useless!
*Attack enemies from behind for a +1 damage bonus. Also, you may do a critical attack for huge damage.
*You can break down signs to get in-game hints as well.
*Every time you get a lot of money or something new, SAVE your game! Nothing's worse than losing a lot of progress from dying to some unseen enemy.
*Since the underworld is randomly created, some of the dungeons can be linked together to make giant-sized mazes. Keep track of where the exit ladder are by checking your automap.
*You can pause the game at any time by clicking / unclicking on the pause icon. Don't hesitate, as the enemies will come after you while you stand there like a dope.
*You can lose a lot of strength quickly by breaking large objects such as trees. If you hold still your strength will gradually return. Drink blue potions to restore strength faster.
*Keep your eyes out for symbols of strength and life! They will increase your max strength and life by +5 and +1, respectively.
*Zombies can drain your strength, and thieves can steal your money!! Others like Platers can't be hurt from a head-on assault (stab them from the sides or behind). Be wary of these and other foes above and below the Black Woods!!
That's it, enjoy!
EDIT 5/26/06: I've just updated the game with some background music for the final dungeon and also a list of known glitches in the text readme. Fortunately, none of these glitches are fatal and don't happen a lot if at all
EDIT 5/30/06: Thanks to my friend Roonik for hosting Equin Adventures while Sitesled is down! You can download it now, YEAH BABY!
