I was so excited for this game that I had pre ordered the Collectors Edition. When I picked up the game and drove home, I could hardly wait. I popped the cartridge into my 3DS system, and was instantly drawn in. The 3D aspects are pulled off nicely, and the colors are very vibrant, the only issue I have is the lack of voice acting D:
I am twenty-two years old, and I love this game. It has beautiful artwork, and plays much like a classic. I don't see it as being a rip-off of Zelda II, but more of an homage to the classic. Wonderful game. Glad I purchased.
I've been loosely following the show for a while so I wanted to try out the game. So, starting off with game play, I find it rather similar to Zelda II, with the over-head world with side scrolling towns and dungeons. I thought it wasn't too bad. The over-world was a little sparsely decorated at times, but it's style fit with the show. The side scrolling portions seemed to have a bit of loose control, which threw some jumps off. Not so much to detract from the quality, but it took some getting used to. Some of the boss fights were too easy. They're supposed to be bosses. They took more hits but sometimes less strategy than regular enemies. I did like the inventory system. Being able to combine certain items for a greater or altered effect was nice. It expanded the uses of weaker early-game items. Graphics-wise, there's not much point to using the 3D visuals. It's main portions are 2-d, so it seems more like a pop-up book than actual 3d. Again, character design fit in with the cartoon, which brought some laughs. Item names referenced the show quite a bit, even bringing back recollections of specific episodes. Over-all, it's a fairly entertaining game, but not a must have. It's certainly worth trying, especially for Adventure Tim fans.
