Background Story

Background Story? I guess it doesn't have one.

Story

An evil king named Xenos want's to  take over the country. And in order to do that, he must take the princess's legendary power. Jack (the guy you play with) is planning to save her. In order to do that, he must four orbs. The orb of Earth, the orb of Wind, the orb of Water, and the orb of Fire. If you get all four orbs you will be able to go to the dark castle (Xenos's Castle) and save Megan. Do you think you can do it?  :<_<:

Looks good!
I'll play it when I have more free time (like over the weekend)

Just a few minor formatting mistakes with your post.  

Also... "The orb of Earth, the orb of wind, the orb of water, and the orb of fire."  Shouldn't the other 3 elements be capitalized!?!

A bit on this in my eyes. XD Those others would be capitalized if they're a special name, which is more like "Orb of Wind" or something...I would assume so. The Earth that Dane is talking about here should probably be our world since he capitalized Earth. If he wasn't referring to that, then yeah, it's an error on his part...

I'll play it and if it passes 30 minutes, it goes into the Projects section. (Yes, I'm more business focused than play friendly)

EDIT: Having your project unencrypted is a good or bad thing. ;) It's good for looking in how you do your work, and it's good for me to check to see if it's long enough at a glance.

Anyway, this sort of RPG style is my favorite sort of grinding. =3 I loved leveling up to 5 in the first few maps (Just fighting those wolves). Anyway, it's great work, and a nice Blizz-ABS game, but it needs perfection. From what I noticed in Aqua, you have pretty minor grammatical errors. Let's go to the first dialog ever in the game and check for errors. All bolded words are errors.

Jeff: Jack! You have to save Megan from the castle. Lord Xenos have taken her so he can user her powers to take over the country!
Jack: Ok! I'm going there now!
Jack: ......
Jeff: Whats the matter?
Jack: Why don't you come? [Pickup line :naughty: ]
Jeff: !
Jeff: What are you, crazy!? I'm not strong enough to fight those monsters!
Jack: Your such a punk! (sigh) What ever I'm leaving now.
Jeff: Don't forget to take the items in the chest. There real important during your adventure!
Jack: Alright!
Jeff: Oh yeah, and one more thing.
Jack: Yes...
Jeff: Here is the controls.
Jack: Thanks, just what I needed.
Jeff: You should take this with you just incase you forget.

obtained
controls!

Not as bad as other games though. Mapping there are minor issues that are just cosmetic errors, but I have to unfortunately say that some of your best mapping is at the beginning. =/

Well, this is definitely good work though, movey movey. :)

EDIT2: Oh, and before I forget. There's a general rule among writing (from what I hear) about names. Main characters that have similar names are sometimes confusing to the reader and may detract the game's awesomeness overall. In this case, Jack and Jeff are pretty similar and it can get confusing. Though you can still keep them, just that someone not so focused may think Jack said what Jeff said. At least everyone in the game doesn't have a similar name, that would be horrifying.

No, the game breaks when you press a button. This is what happened to me when I played, I pressed...somewhere around ZXCV, I cannot recall.

Before I forget once more:
(click to show/hide)
(click to show/hide)
Some minor errors. Correct them whenever...

And Aqua keeps bugging me to correct the sentence that talks about those orbs.
Quote
In order to do that, he must four orbs. The orb of Earth, the orb of Wind, the orb of Water, and the orb of Fire.
You're missing a verb in the first sentence. Replace the period after "orbs." with a colon.

@Valcos: Strange. o.o

EDIT: I'm helping your game so, so much...

Credit winkio for the HUD. :) Though...I know you're being clever because winkio didn't credit himself for the making of the HUD, but credit him for mannerisms anyway.

dude you really need to go through your game and make sure it works. play through it your self for example. and do EVERYTHING there are places where you need to go buy mapping issues don't let you through. and one room in the wind cave with a box in it can't be exited because a telleport event dose not work. check your work before you release it to the public
I no longer keep up with posts in the forum very well. If you have a question or comment, about my work, or in general I welcome PM's. if you make a post in one of my threads and I don't reply with in a day or two feel free to PM me and point it out to me.

No offense, danes, but this game has TOO many problems. All the enemies are passive, even the bosses are passive, the last boss has only 1 HP, Your dialouge was sort of confusing in some parts, most of the messages went over the the window and I couldn't read them there where some scipt errors, the events in the wind cave made the hero freeze (you should have made the move events ignore impossible moves), I didn't know how the bomb worked, I think you only worked on one spell (Fire had the only special traits, Thunder made me have to be right next to the enemy to use it), and there was no ending in the game, I beat it, and it says "Cannot find map 130." I looked in the game and found that you made every map a child of it (you should probably sort out the maps, make appropriate parents and childs, it makes it easier. If you don't know how parent maps and child maps work, then read the manual). You made it interesting, but if only the game was easier, challenging, and had an ending, it would be a great game. I saw what you're trying to come up with, though. It's probably your first game, is it? (If it is, it's better than mine)

Yeah, but he should go through his mapping after the first few maps...
They get really dull and don't flow well at all.

Other than that, this is a good game made with Blizz-ABS :)
