User Review Information
Memory wipeReviewed By: devdri on 02 Apr 2013
This mod felt the same as the very first time I beat the game as a kid. There are still all the locations I love, but tweaked here and there to force genuine exploration and boost the difficulty. Thanks Jeville for letting me play my all time favorite game for the first time again! The beginning is probably the best modification. I hoped for a bit more changes / out of order later in game, but still the dungeon reworkings were top and I could finish the last 3 levels out of order anyway. I have to admit I had to move from phone to TAS emulator on PC at one point. There were two or three rooms that required inhuman precision and speed. I also couldn’t get the beak in Bottle Grotto, although I have an idea how it can be done now. Anyway, 100% recommended if you loved the original and would like to get a memory wipe and skill downgrade to make the game challenging again.
