What happened here is ridiculous, and at times even shameful.
Now the hack has been removed?!
I would have prefered to play on 3DS but it was only a minor hassle to run it on a shitty laptop I had around, even the "problematic" Snes9x worked for me.
I don't blame Puzzledude for what he did; if a product has quality I'm willing to overlook this.
I respect that he has his reasons, although he'd do well to free himself of his grudges.
I got the hack earlier today and had an enjoyable session. There is a noticeable gap in quality though.
The first dungeon is some really lame bullshit. When I played that I thought: this is it?! Is that a joke?
It being the first dungeon makes for a bad show-case; I'd even say it oughta be cut.
Puzz, I assume you'd agree that it is the weakest part of the whole game, no?
The second dungeon was also massively annoying but it was still somewhat interesting.
The third dungeon was what I've been hoping for, excellent work there. I just now obtained the hookshot after a glorious march through that maze room; I failed that maze several times because I falsely believed some of those doors/fences were red herrings(as encountered in other logic games), but in the end each element had its purpose.
At times the bulldozing of watery trails got bothersome; it was too much work and too many moves to accomplish obvious goals, which was especially painful after restarts.
One more thing about water and boxes: Did you know that boxes can be pushed along a shore when the box is in the water(and therefore presumedly should be illegal to be moved) if Link has one foot on dry land?
~ ~ ~ ~ ___ ~ ~ water
. .. … →'-L' land
It only works if the shore is horizontal with water in the north and land in the south.
Did you account for that, Puzz? I only noticed it very late, but this probably makes the game easier in parts, or could possibly even break some puzzles.
NOW GET THE HACK BACK ONTO THE SITE, PEOPLE!!
