One of the main promoted games, Le Défi de Zeldo - Chapitre 2: La Tour des Souvenirs, is in current danger of getting deleted off the Internet.
https://www.solarus-games.org/en/games/defi-de-zeldo-ch-2

If you click on “Download”, the only download link you git points to MediaFire, and NOT an URL on solarus-games.org. AFAIK this is the only game where the URL points to something external.

Please be aware that MediaFire is notorious for deleting files, it's definitely possible they will delete the file one day. MediaFire is NOT suited for permanent hosting and should not be relied on.

PLEASE re-upload the game on solarus-games.org to make sure the game is preserved. This game is far too good and should not be allowed to die. Thanks for your attention.

Source: I have had previous bad experience with broken MediaFire links because they apparently deleted the file behind the link already. IMO MediaFire should only be trusted with short-term hosting, when it doesn't matter the file will not stay online forever.

Zelda Mystery of Solarus DX / Thumbs up

I have known this game for years now but never managed to complete it until recently. I think it was because I was stuck in the game because a critical chest in Hyrule Castle did not appear, but this bug seems to be fixed a long time ago now and I managed to proceed. ANYWAY …

It was great fun, and a lot of the other games you offer on the homepage are great, too (I have written a few rewiews already).

The game is very polished, and there's not much I can complain about. Which is very rare if you know me … It certainly gives back memories to ALTTP. I can't remember if there's anything to complain, really, it's been a few weeks since I completed it. One thing which goes into my mind right now is that the fish creatures near the secret tower do not jump/flop like actual fish, they creep on the ground which just looks wrong. But it's a very minor thing. Maybe there's other things, but I can't remember.

The overworld is great, the dungeons are great, pretty much everything about this game is just fun. It's basically just like ALTTP. Maybe it has not as much depth and content as ALTTP but that's perfectly fine. A game does not have to be very long to be great. I consider “Awesome per Second” to be an important metic. ;-)

The world design feels pretty well thought-out. There is nothing in the world that seems out of place. Everything seems to have its place, which I consider very important. There are no “WTF” moments or areas where I think there's something missing or incomplete. I have seen so many games which fail HARD in this area. I have no idea how much time it took to design the whole world, tile-by-tile, but I assume it was not very short. ;)

I have completed the game (obviously), but I have not found all the secrets. But probably most of them. No idea if I ever will find them all. But I like the dungeon design as well, and the underground river, and those little secrets everywhere.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for this nice little (ok, not so little) game! Thumbs up!

General discussion / Exposure of “unofficial” games
« on: July 21, 2019, 06:41:44 pm »
Hello. This is just my opinion on the website solarus-game.org but whatever.

Basically I just wanted to say thank you a lot for giving the other “unofficial” games a chance to shine as well by giving them actual exposure right on your website, and not just bury them under 100 metric tons of forum posts like some other communities tend to do (I'm looking at YOU, minetest.net!). It's not just free exposure for ZSDX, but for many other games as well. Because there are great games from the community as well. That's exactly how a game engine website should look like. It makes the life of potential players easier to find the relevant, playable games. The list seems well-curated as well, you cannot download crap or incomplete games here.

So yeah, good job, and please keep it up(dated)! :)
