While the game does not feature any procedural generation, I believe if you look at it from a contemporary perspective it resembles games like The Binding of Isaac more than Zelda in terms of item use and visual design. We tried to source most assets from public domain origins, however we could not find a suitable main character sprite so Dr. Little remained a lookalike of Dr. Light from Mega Man. However, if you watched the video at the top of this page, you will undoubtedly have noticed that we did record our own sound effects for the game.
The project was written in Java 6 and uses the Swing toolkit. It is to Java's credit that the same unmodified jar file developed for Windows in 2009 runs flawlessly on an Ubuntu Linux desktop in 2020. I would love to make the game available for download, however the team did not talk about that possibility at the time so unfortunately I am unable to distribute it now.
