    Let's fight minibosses!

    Yes, let's!

    http://l.j-factor.com/zeldaclassic/NeoFirst_L.qst - Updated 16/6/08.

    These minibosses are not in order of difficulty. Skip them by walking to the right.

    Boss: Vitreous Cygel
    Stolen from: A Link to the Past, Zelda Challenge: Outlands
    Notes: It was devised when I tried to think of what it would take to make Gohma hard. Fighting it may cause permanent baldness.

    Boss: Mothula Junior
    Stolen from: Oracle of Seasons
    Notes: Remarkably close to the original. Those li'l moths are just cute.

    Boss: Flaming Elder
    Stolen from: Zelda Challenge: Outlands
    Notes: Don't fight him as if he were Patra.

    Boss: ?????
    Stolen from: Oracle of Ages
    Notes: Unlike the original, it has no particularly weak spot. If you have an idea for the name of this jumping creature, please let me know! (Must be one word.)

    The concepts are sound. But I remain sort of ... underwhelmed.

    Okay, I must be dumb, but how do I get to the minibosses?

    For what it's worth, I was trying to keep them simple and make them fit in with the original Z1 bosses. They're only minibosses, after all.

    What build would that be? I'm not getting half the bosses to appear either.

    813 is the newest one, so is this fully check-out-able on that build...or the one after?

    Re: Let's fight minibosses!

    I think theyre pretty cool. they may not be super fancy but they make excellent minibosses, and would even fit well as "late in the game" bosses in a Z1 style quest. Good job, _L_!

    Russ, did you perchance open it in ZQuest and save or something? Because it should dump you right onto the first miniboss screen, I believe. Where are you opening up at?

    Re: Let's fight minibosses!

    I think they fit in with the overall feel of the quest very nice, and are certainly much more interesting than the Z1 enemies. (That patrarobe thing is a bitch to kill). People will certainly be bugging you for the scripts pretty soon. Especially since the tiles are colored for DoR.


    I'm a sucker for the really big boss battles though. :heart: You know, that feeling you get when the game just takes over, and out of nowhere the screen begins closing in on you, and the first time you fight it you think "Holy Shit" and you try to just "not die". ..That's the stuff.
