Release date: Summer 2017
Rush to Adventure is a retro fantasy speedrunning adventure. Inspired by classic NES titles like Zelda and Castlevania. You awaken on the shore of a cursed island. Your only way off the island is to fight through the monsters and lift the curse.

Exploration and action
The game is divided into two parts. You explore the non-linear island in a top-down view. This is where you talk to islanders, visit shops etc. The levels are played as a side-scrolling platformer. You must reach the end or fight a boss to unlock more parts of the island.

Adventure and speedrunning
Slay monsters to gain xp and level up. Collect coins to buy items and weapons. At the end of each level you are scored and receive a rank. Play for the adventure or replay levels for better times and higher scores, to improve your rank.

  • 41 levels (fields, forest, cave, tower, graveyard and temple)
  • 5 golem mini-bosses and 4 bosses
  • 9 high quality retro NES style songs
  • 14 different swords, shields and armors
  • 4 attributes to level up (strength, health, stamina and speed)
  • 3 unlockable abilities (Dive Attack, Power Attack and Sprint)
  • 8-bit NES style graphics and gameplay
  • Play on your keyboard or controller

I have been working on this game in my spare time off and on for over 5 years. And it is now very close to being complete. You can find my blog and old screenshots on my website.
