I'm continuing my playthrough Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past.
I think that Dungeon 1, "The Palace of Darkness" is the most interesting and polished of the three, sort of a gem. I think it might be bigger, as well. It's a nice mix of interesting linear sequences and choices you need to make.
Dungeon 2 and 3 feel a bit short by comparison. Dungeon 2, the water one, has a few interesting tricks where they take advantage of the fact that they know which direction you are likely to head, and design it so that it's the wrong direction. Dungeon 3 has just a few tricky puzzles in it, but doesn't feel very large overall. The leadup to the final boss (Big Moth) is nice.
This game is a lot more fun when you try to use the bow and arrow almost exclusively.
Finishing a game is about millions of tiny things. It truly, truly is.
Onward I slog. There are some crucial things that still need to be in place before I get beta (alpha) testers. If you want to be a tester, please post on this blog, or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
