Incoming Retro Phase…. The Adventure of Link

I play games through different phases, stealth, rpg’s, action genres to name a few. Lately I’ve been gravitating towards old school games. Especially Zelda 2. I don’t know why but I never got into it when I was younger but I did have access to it. Playing it now has me thinking that I would have loved it back then.

I have yet to clear the second dungeon but so far every enemy has some type of strategy to it. Slime/blob’s jumping, spider creatures falling from above, to the intense Iron Knuckle that feels like an epic battle every time you face him.

The RPG like system is awesome as well. Almost every unit gives you XP, pass a certain amount and the game asks you what would you like to update. Attack, Magic, or Life. Magic allows you to use spells gained from village elders. For example, one magic spell grants you more defense.
