Ittle Dew 2 harkens back to the original days of The Legend of Zelda. You will have to fight your way through more than half a dozen dungeons to grab new weapons and pieces for your escape boat. Besides searching dungeons full of monsters and puzzles you will also seek out dozens of hidden caves that will contain health power ups and more useful items for your quest.
Don't let the cute cartoon look, or wacky story line fool you. This game is not going to be a cake walk. Every dungeon has a short cut - if you have the right equipment to access them. You will also have to do some serious thinking when it comes to solving the puzzles in the game. They will tax your brain and only get more devious as you progress. The optional dungeons will make sure that you are at your best. All you have to do to gain access to the optional dungeons is search out special pieces of scrap. Once you have gathered enough of them you can open new paths.
The graphics in the game lean a bit on the cartoony side, but they are excellent. When you first look at the game, it will seem like it is for younger ages, but laying beneath the cutesy exterior is a substantal game that will test all adventurers. The game features a real questing soundtrack filled with jaunty tunes to accompany you in your journey. I can't be certain, but a few of the tracks sound like they have an electric accordian on them, and this is not a bad thing.
ittle Dew 2 is an involved adventure game that will make Zelda fans forget for a while that the new game is months away. The variety of enemies, the distint areas for you to explore, and the fact that you can tackle dungeons in any order will keep you busy for hours. The game is available now on XBox One, PS4 and Steam for $19.99… Expand
Mar 13, 2017Ittle Dew 2 was a fun little title that I enjoyed about 80% of the time. It controls well and unabashedly pulls from many classic games from the past. However, it fails to achieve the same level of greatness their inspirations achieved. Instead, you find bosses who feel impossible to beat and solutions to puzzles you will only find by accident or Google. The idea of me finishing off as many bosses in as many dungeons as I did and never once feeling accomplished or masterful was saddening. If you're a fan of this genre in need of a quick fix, maybe check it out, if not, don't waste your time.
Dec 5, 2016Ittle Dew 2 is an extremely solid game. There are not a lot of Zelda-like games available on Xbox One, and I am thankful not only to have one, but that the one we have is good. A great art style blends a competent game design including fun gameplay and an interesting narrative. While the storyline may be a little too simple, the dialogue is cheeky and I laughed out loud more than a few times.
