A small boy is born from the wind, appearing in front of a house. He doesn't know his purpose, but knows that this house is important.

Hi, this game is honestly amazing but I have an honest issue. I can't get the walkthru to work and I cannot find the last three chests. If you would not mind posting up another link to the walkthru or something I would be very appreciative. Great game. :)

Newgrounds seems to split up links when I add them to the description with spaces, to here you go:

This was quite an exceptional game. Whether or not you intended to emulate the Zelda games, you did an excellent job of doing so. Bonus points for that! :)

The only problem I had was finding the last treasure chest. I looked all over for it, and the only thing I could think of was that I missed one in Lacste, but I couldn't go back to look because the entrance was sealed and I couldn't remember if there was any other way in. Being prevented from earning the "good" ending because of the mechanics is the only thing that prevented me from giving a perfect rating, but otherwise this was an enjoyable game for as long as I played it.

The only suggestion I would make is to implement some kind of map mechanic; I got lost several times, and while I did memorize the area eventually, it would have been much more convenient to be able to tell exactly where I was going.

I'm looking forward to seeing more!


ConnorUllmann responds:

Actually, you can't beat Lacste without opening all of the chests inside :)

I have a similar problem a previous reviewer had. In the ice dungeon, there is a chest you can only get after finding the Conch. However, I found my way to the boss before I could backtrack, and now I'm unable to go back in to retrieve it. Since I assume you need all of the seed pieces to beat the game, I think this is slipshod game design.

Also, the addition of a map and a save feature would be nice (I often get lost and every time I close my browser window the game resets).

Other than those griped, I LOVE THIS GAME!

Awesome game man. Link's Awakening was always my favorite Zelda game because it ended so well (folly of the genre always ending with princess is saved and such), and your game really brought this all back to me. Question about the ending though *spoilers*: Wouldn't Seedling's fate in the bad ending just follow eventually in the good ending as well? I mean, once his purpose is fulfilled...


ConnorUllmann responds:

Well, you see, he never returns to the Oracle (at least, that's the way I like to see it). He just goes far away and never returns. Or, if there's a sequel, maybe he does...
