Play Skrillex Quest, a Zelda-inspired Flash game of scary monsters, glitched sprites

Jason Oda, creator of advergames and quirky browser-based fare like Perfect Strangers: Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now, has released his latest oddity, a hack and slash adventure inspired by The Legend of Zelda and electronic musician Skrillex.

Titled Skrillex Quest, the Flash game trades Like Likes for the wub wub stylings of Skrillex. The game, Oda tells The Verge, was created for Skrillex and Atlantic Records and features the tune "Summit" featuring singer Ellie Goulding. Skrillex Quest's story sends a sword-wielding player into an NES cartridge to explore a kingdom glitched by dust on the game's contacts. Hack and slash combat against glitchy cubes combines with Zelda-style dungeon exploration for a good, nostalgia-fueled time.

Oda says Skrillex Quest was a one-man job and took about three months to create. Players will likely slash their way through the action game in about 15 to 20 minutes.
