Retro Puzzler “Roniu’s Tale” Now Available for NES

Over the weekend, homebrew game publisher Mega Cat Studios announced that an all-new retro-styled puzzle game Roniu’s Tale is now available for the original Nintendo Entertainment System.

Developed by Kunjee Studio, Roniu’s Tale is inspired by adventure/puzzlers of the 1980s such as Solomon’s Key and The Adventures of Lolo.

Here’s the official breakdown of Roniu’s Tale from Mega Cat Studios:

Polish those magic and thinking skills, because there’s no turning back! Step into the shoes of a hopeless wizard who tried to run away from his problems and found himself in a bigger mess. Help Roniu access his magic and find his way through a deadly dungeon while taking down a plague of enemies hellbent on keeping him there. Steady now, you’re no longer on stable ground!

Inspired by Solomon’s Key and Adventures of Lolo, Roniu’s Tale is a head-scratching top-down puzzler with action elements. Each level is designed to have one or more paths but beware: each step Roniu takes will cause the tiles to break as he passes. You’ll need to watch your step to search for the orbs and keys you need to escape, danger lurks at every step!


  • 47 Levels of Dangerous Pathways
  • Head Scratching Puzzles
  • A Whirlwind of Enemies & Epic Bosses and Four Magical Skills to Take Them On
  • Limbo, Lava, Jungle & Cross-dimensional Pixel-Immersive Mechanics
  • Intuitive & Precise Controls
  • Authentic NES Chiptunes

Cartridge-only copies of Roniu’s Tale are $49.99, while CIB copies with a box and manual are $59.99. You can order yours via the Mega Cat Studios online store here.
