    This is my go-to game for nostalgic pleasure. Though the platforming-heavy sections are quite average, the Zelda-like dungeons are hugely enjoyable. The impressive boss battles, quirky presentation and fantastic music also help to make this a really fun experience.

    This game is perfect.The things that ruin it are the extremely slow frame-rate and the camera problems.

    Not a bad game I guess, but I found it rather boring. The level design is empty...wel in the beginning of the game for sure, the ugly music, graphics - there wasn't anything I liked in the beginning of the game while I didn't get used and wasn't intrigued by the world I visited And finally I didn't have the patience to talk to the folks in town. so I got stuck very Not a bad game I guess, but I found it rather boring.

  1. In conclusion, this is a pretty good game, but I doubt I'll add it to my library since it isn't that difficult and doesn't have any lasting value.
  2. An enjoyable, fun-filled game which should keep you puzzling for a long time to come.
