This wasn’t on my radar at all until I saw a couple of people say it was an excellent little homage to A Link to the Past – one of my favourite games of all time – and that it definitely is.

There are a couple of minor caveats: On the whole, it matches Zelda’s structure brilliantly, except for one or two moments where one ‘screen’ in a dungeon will be, frustratingly, more difficult than the rest, which is jarring considering how easy even the end bosses tend to be.

Still, I enjoyed my eight hours with it. Definitely worth a look for fellow Zelda fans.
