Guardian of Paradise

A metroidvania in the style of the Zelda games by E. Hashimoto, a.k.a. Buster.

Tela and his sister, Tina, were fine living on their own — until Tina fell ill. The local doctor had no idea what her ailment was, and as such, was unable to cure her. One day, Tela speaks with the town's elder, who remembers the tale of Paradise — a land whose waters can cure any malady. Only the five Spirits of Earth, Water, Wind, Dark, and Fire know the way, however. Determined to heal his sister, Tela embarks on a journey that will lead him across the lands and beyond the edge of reality.
