The fable of the relic tells of an object of incredible power in exchange for a deadly cost. After an unfortunate accident your partner Amber disappears with the relic. You chase after her with hopes of stopping her before it's too late.
Welcome to this episode. You play as an oshawott rescuing his partner Amber from the clutches of the administrator. This is more story focused so if that's not your thing then I guess you can move along. The episode runs off the Beta 4 engine, download for that is below if you don't have it for some reason.
Oshawott is a resprited link so his controls are the same. You have the downstab and upstabs. Low front stabs for enemies that are up to one block tall, swipe bombs to pick them up (except smb2 walking bombs), down drop bombs below you which is helpful for one particular level. There are no lives or 1ups in this episode, instead money can be used to give yourself the fire, ice, or hammer powerup with the drop item button and tops off your hearts. Dialogue can be advanced with either attack buttons. Some bosses (I'm terrible at bosses sorry in advance) have an optional hard mode. Doing a boss in hard mode does not do anything other than add an additional challenge and are just for bragging rights. Beating everything in normal mode would be the same as hard mode in the end. It was mainly an experiment I wanted to mess around with and nothing else.

If anything is broken or doesn't seem to work properly let me know. If something is too hard then put on your gamer glasses. Thanks for playing.
