Nice creativity - Never Feel Lost

Reviewed By: ultimaweapon on 06 Oct 2020

You can definitely see the creativity in this hack. Never have I felt lost and couldn’t find my way around. Level designs were great except 7-9 since there were the original dungeons. Not losing your Magical Shield was a welcomed bonus. The only issue I found was the clues for escaping the Lost Woods and Lost Mountains. There were way too vague and hard to understand.

Author has great creativity, so I’d like to see him in a future update do new dungeon layouts for 7-9. Overall a great hack and highly recommended.
