From my point of view the main problem with the gameplay is like this: I can't see any real progress of the character I play. I was on the 10th level, I had all the weapons, all the keys, I collected 6 coins out of 8 - and I wasn't stronger during battles than I was on the beginning (maybe slightly, but unnoticeably). What are the advantages of having higher level?
I am looking what had been done with other RPGs for progress of character, like new abilities, increase of hit points, etc.
I was talking about a BBS, a feature… but never mind.
I am still wondering if you are suggesting making this game multiplayer via modem/networking. Currently not in the planning.
Looking at more recent games they have a main plotline/story - but along the way there are hundreds of side quests which can be undertaken for additional items to help in a game. Some are worth it and some not - but those who want to just win wont have to go through 10,000 rooms - those that like to explore the limits will most likely hit 50%+ of those areas.
I know many have played Adventure and Role Playing Games throughout the years. These things can be single player and a single main quest to multiplayer with lots of quests. I said the inspiration for this game is the first NES Legend of Zelda. However I am attempting to keep it original. I know someone else is porting Adventure II to the 8-bit, however he is doing something different. If I was going to port something like the 2600 Adventure, I would be trying to stay in line with the 2600 game, a little more retro. At the same time really up the challenge and add more Quest/Game options to play from the original Adventures to something playing on a mega size world with more colored dragons, items, and other things.
I have seen both turned based and action based Adventure games throughout the years. Text Adventure games are also interesting. Either are intriguing in their own way. Some let you explore and switch to a different battle screen when you encounter a monster. How many people played Dungeons and Dragons, or something similar? I am someone who likes to have games with the action games and when I play some of those that switch to a battle screen, it starts getting a little frustrating if it happens too often.
All I can still say about the updates is that it is something I want to surprise people with and we all have to wait and see.
