In NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits experience the awesome story of Nyx, an enigmatic winged girl who must descend from heaven in search of her missing friend, Icarus. Fly over the ruins of ancient Greece and avoid falling into blazing sands or perishing in the claws of cruel harpies and hydras. You will need the help of Zeus and other benevolent gods from Olympus to summon their powers. They will let you cast rays, modify the scenery and control winds as you wish. By making your own wrist movements and pointing to the game screen, you will be able to achieve these and many other feats. Fly, aim and shoot using your Wii Remote controller. Play with a friend and maximize your abilities: While one controls Nyx, the other will control the powers from the gods.

r5194 It seems that sadly this game is the closest we will ever get to a Kid Icarus sequel. The game is playable with some major graphical issues. The color of the sand and the shadows are rendered incorrectly when using "EFB Copy to Texture", using "EFB Copy to Ram" fixes most major graphical issues though. Starting the game with "EFB Copy to Ram", loading the first level and switching to "EFB Copy to Texture" seems to be a working workaround. You will need to repeat the process after every level though. (1080P) NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits gameplay on Dolphin JADS876
