Well, a turn based zelda is always possible...I think a action version might be possible in basic (think kevin's metroid), but obviously not with full features.  If somebody wanted to do an asm version, I'd be willing to make a full map but only if I saw a tech demo to prove I wasn't wasting my time.

wow looks really nice :)

An action Zelda in BASIC would need to have only one enemy at a time to be fast enough

Well, if you used simulated threads you could run the player code, then an enemy, player code, different enemy, etc until you loop back to the first enemy. The enemies would get slower with each additional item in the thread, so whether they would be fast enough is hard to know.  The player would stay the same speed no matter what happens in the other threads, so in a game like an rpg such objects could still do things without needing to be all that fast.

That's what I did way back when with my cat trap game on my calc.

It looks better, actually... :P Being designed as 8x8 instead of crappy scaling from 16x16 makes a huge difference.

j/k

Wow looks nice. I can't wait until Axe supports 4 lv grayscale, maybe someone could give such project a try once he gains enough experience

Impossible, how can you do such detail in such resolution? I love seeing those pixel art skills used.
Looks excellent.

 :o

Actually, a project like this wouldn't require smooth scrolling or anything (except when moving between screens). That would make graphics management considerably simpler.

Yeah true, the fact graphics are small allows for more stuff on screen. No scrolling would make it even more old skool because it would be like the old NES Zelda 1.

The major hangups would be trying to store the data since there are a lot of sprites and tiles in link's awakening. the original zelda on the other hand wouldn't necessarily be that hard. how much memory does a 8x8 4 level gray take in axe parser?

For now it takes as much as in xLIB/celticIII, but in the future I think Quigibo wants to add 4 lv gs support so it would drop from 24 bytes to 16 for a 8x8 sprite

In the future, I wonder if an Axe remake of Dark Link Quest would be possible...
