Very good game, old school 2D world in 3D over head view just like the original but so much better. With having to use guides online, the puzzle factor/mission factor is above moderate. It will take some time to figure it out, depending on your mystery crackin skilz! Good story line, some cross over eye candy for those of us that love Mario and the like. And who doesn't love fishing? Glad this made a comeback! Although at the moment it has a lofty sticky price, but if you have a few dollars to burn, this is worth it.
If you loved the original Link's Awakening for the Gameboy (which you should), then you should be familiar with this game. If you've never played it, what are you doing?! Go and get this game now!
I stopped playing after a while because the actual gameplay was not that new to me. I frequently play Link's Awakening on emulators (I still have my copy of DX), and I know the ins and outs.
However! As much as I've played this game. I've never, and i Mean never, gotten past a certain pond. Maybe this time'll be different!
This game is so very good, the art style has been divisive for some but I really think it adds to the dreamlike world of the game, in my opinion this is a must own for Switch fans, the game is a classic.
A:AnswerNo it is not, as of what I know there is no Link to the Past HD unfortunately. This is a remake of the original Links awakening and in the Zelda timeline this game takes place after a link to the Past. But this game is great and I do highly recommend it. I would love to see Link to The Past HD happen though. And Skyward sword HD is also coming pretty soon so maybe he'd like that one too.
A:AnswerIt means that it’s a digital copy of the game that gets downloaded to the gaming system. There is no disc/chip. They give/send you a code to enter and follow the steps to download the game permanently to you system. 1 benefit is that you do not need to enter a disc/chip every time you want to play.
