Midnight Star is a GameBoy-styled action RPG that was made for GameBoy Jam 7.

The objective of the game is to retrieve the stolen magical gem, the 'Midnight Star,' which has been stolen by the evil mage Urgad!

To help you achieve your objective there are six items scattered around Haven for you to find. These items will help you so far, but you will also need to grow in experience to be strong enough for the challenges ahead.
