Fresh take on the originalReviewed By: godulator on 07 Jan 2018
This is great hack which is challenging and tweaks and introduces plenty of new puzzles and mechanics. With new clues being provided by talking statues pointing in the right direction throughout each dungeon, and an NPC also hinting to your next overworld destination. You are forced to re-explore the overworld to find newly located essential items, and sometimes completing half a dungeon before having to explore the overworld again. This hack shows that the original really had lots of unused opportunities in the programming of the game.
Puzzles are not merely adjusted, brand new ones are introduced in rooms where non existed before, giving you that new game fun feeling.
Unfortunately, the hack includes some annoying, boring overworld hurdles after you have completed dungeon 2 Bottle Grotto. Frame perfect jumping. At which point, any players that have played through without using any guide, cheat or save-states will likely resort to them. A must play for fans who have mastered the original.
Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
