The dark wizard Ganondorf, seeking to conquer Hyrule, vowed to put an end to the Hylian bloodline. Wielding the Triforce of Power, he took it upon himself to end the royal family once and for all. Princess Zelda is already dead, and the king is slain before Link's own eyes. This will be the Last King of Hyrule.

The pieces of the Triforce of Courage have been scattered to prevent Ganondorf from seizing them. Link, drawn by their essence of courage, must reforge it from its shards in order to face Ganondorf.

The kingdom is already lost. The royal bloodline has been ended. Waves of evil wash over Hyrule as Ganondorf's armies try to find the pieces of the Triforce before Link. Ganondorf, fortified in the Dark World beyond anyone's reach, has achieved absolute power. The situation is utterly hopeless.

Yet as he obtains the strength of the Triforce of Courage, Link presses on into this hopless situation regardless.

The Last King of Hyrule is RMN's collaborative Zelda game made in SMBX! This game was a collaborative effort to make a game in the SMBX game engine where Link is the main playable character. The SMBX engine is designed to make Mario games, and this game contains similarities to Mario-style platforming in some ways, playing like a cross between Zelda 2 and Mario 3.

As I continue offering up SMBX games, Alex keeps playing 'em. Sadly, this one suffered from some tech issues, but he got through it!

I sure wish I could see what you guys are talking about in those secret blogs u.u So many notices...
You're not missing much. It's mostly people wishing other people were doing things they said they'd do, or were perhaps pigeon-holed into doing then abandoned the project, or...whatever. It's a pretty sorry state of affairs, honestly, but we're getting there!

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

Currently, we are done with all the levels except Ganon's Castle. We still need to make the world map and cut scenes to connect them together, though.

I'm actually kind of amused that it gives you notices for the secret pages.
So basically you guys aren't excepting levels anymore? What a shame. It just so happens that my laptop is getting fixed soon & I was planning on jumping back in to help you guys finish this but it sounds like what's left is a bunch of technical stuff that's beyond my scope of making levels. How exactly are you guys planning to make 'cutscenes'? I would volunteer for the world map but I don't have any real experience working on world maps to begin with.

Wow, Triple Identical posts, Is that a record for the RMN Hardware to be so buggy?

Also, We do need one more level done, but I'm not sure if anyone did it yet, LockeZ probably has the best answer.

The only level left to do is the final boss. We are unfortunately not accepting any more level submissions at this time, unless maybe they're amazing. Kentona has started on the world map and I would hate to make him redo any work.

"Cut scenes" are probably mostly going to be small (1-2 screen) levels that make use of events and layers to make stuff happen. The person who was supposed to be in charge of both overseeing and eventing our story has vanished though, so we're back at square one story-wise. If you understand events and layers and have an eye for detail I would love to have you help with some of that stuff.

RMN is under heavy load (for RMN's standard anyways). Megaman revenge of the fall has generated 30GB of traffic in downloads this month.

The world map, because it is such simple tiles, isn't that hard to edit in new levels. I also am leaving a lot of space. And I haven't made much overall progress...

That is certainly not a record. The record is probably somewhere around 7 or 8. The page was slow to load, so he likely kept hitting submit.

I'm kind of a smbx cutscene master. But I plan on reviewing this game, so if me doing that work would prevent that, then I can't.

You couldn't give it official stars, Link_2112, but you could still submit a Let's Play video as media, and judge the game in the video. That plus credit for being a developer would be worth a lot more makerscore than the review. Please help? We definitely need you.

Also, Animebryan, if Kentona is fine with it, then feel free to submit a level or two. They would need to be outdoor levels, not temples or bosses. And they would need to not be in Gerudo Desert, because the desert already has more levels than any other world. Send me a message if you are interested, and I can give you our resources such as tiles and enemies.
Hmm, I guess I could use the ms. Ok. Send me in, coach!

For the record, I'm back on track with this since 2014 ended, and I've begun making the final battle stage. I'm off all weekend, too, so I should be able to make some nice progress.

OK, fans and cohorts, this is an announcement. We are now shooting for a deadline of February 21, the anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda, to release this game. We are about 90% of the way done with the game and I think this deadline is very feasible! Stay tuned, and be sure to make us feel super bad if we miss it!
I noticed the loading problems with this site but didn't think it was properly posting my posts. Anyway, I'm still waiting for my laptop to be fixed. Once that is done I'll install SMBX & try to get reacquainted with the editor (since it's been a while). I just need to know which areas actually need the levels so I know what kind of theme to run with them. I also read that you guys are scraping the idea of 'town' levels. That's a shame really. I would imagine that towns could be used as this game's equivalent to mushroom houses from the Mario games as a resting point with power-ups & maybe a 1-up or two & perhaps some info from towns people about secrets in certain levels like palaces, just like in Zelda 2.

But your Canadian, and proud of it.
What do you know about "the buck stops here"? :)

Am I correct that the rules state "if you accept blame, there is a 3k reduction
in M score :)
