Lack of Magic Powder - very difficult beginning.Reviewed By: JamesBond007 on 09 Mar 2013
New adventure of Link (swordless at the beginning) is interesting, but this hack is not perfect. I found glitchy intro and small plot inconsistency - Tarin (Jason in this hack) is present in Marin’s house and in the forest at the same time.
At the beginning, it’s possible to use Magic Powder on anything at any time, including killing monsters for rupees (I’m hoping for early Shovel). Unfortunately, aside from an upgrade from the Mad Batter, there appears to be no way to refill the supply after using the powder on Raccoon-Jason and obtaining the Tail Key. The way to the mushroom is blocked by bushes, which are indestructible without powder or sword.
With Magic Powder, the game looks OK, but without it (and no refills), the difficulty is really higher - you have only your shield.
Overall, cool idea, but lack of other weapons at the beginning (aside of Magic Powder) does not satisfy me.
