That Little Demon
Dec 2, 2020



Welcome back to the Imp Zone Game Club [IZGC]. Long dormant, it now returns.

How it works:

- Your first post in this thread will be a Trophy Case of sorts where you can show off what games (and challenges) you finish for the club - I need volunteers who are good at art to make badges 50x50 pixel for display
- Games will last 1 week, so most games will be short and able to be beaten usually in 1 sitting
- I will pick the first game, and then randomly select another poster to pick the next challenge
- Hoping IKs can update the thread title weekly to reflect the deadline and game being played
- Games picked should be able to be emulated by everyone IMO

Generally these things die quickly but I think this time I can run it for awhile and keep it updated, and it is always fun to do so lets see.

I'll keep this OP updated with challenges and things about the game being played

First Game:
Wizards & Warriors (NES) - 1987 - Deadline 1/25/22 11:59EST
Wizards & Warriors is a platformer in which players control Kuros as he makes his way through the forests of Elrond to Castle IronSpire, where he must defeat Malkil and rescue the princess. After starting the game, the map is briefly shown for players to look at; afterwards, gameplay starts. Starting in the Elrond forest, players must explore the trees both on top and inside to find items and to make it into the caves and tunnels. There, players start collecting the various magical items and treasure; they must make their way through caves filled with ice as well as lava. Afterwards, players fight through a second set of forests before arriving at Castle IronSpire, in which the player must go over the castle in order to enter it. The castle consists of a series of mazes in which players must use keys to open doors and possibly find other damsels who can be rescued. At the end lies the final confrontation with the wizard Malkil.



Here is an awesome cover of the music from W&W (one of my favorite tracks from the NES)

Challenges Badges:
: Beat the game
: Beat the first two levels without continuing

Good luck, and have fun for those who participate!
