Z to roll
X to cast spell (once the spellbook has been found)

There are three endings. Remember, the crown of wishes grants the wish of whoever touches it.

I absolutely adore this and love the use of gameboy zelda graphic style as I loved those games so much. I could go into each of the nuances that I love about this game but I'm sure the dude making the game knows already. I really love the challenges to this game, and the longer you play the more you realize the nuances to it. the style is really technically nice, and the design is super poetic and beautiful. this is a great game to sit down with for a bit and feel like there is no more war. ;-) would love to see another game in this style!! I just loved everything about this!! excellent game!!! you are incredibly talented keep creating !!!!

This seemed like it was going to be just another simple boring game but the descriptive text on each page made this seem like one of those old text-based adventure games. Also the music was perfect for this. I found this after playing some of Overgrowth. Great job! I hope to see more games like this!

Nice game, but a little bit short and too hard to get the nymph past the two angels.

Awesome atmospheric game, the descriptive text on each screen is a cool old-school solution to make the game more impressive using player's own imagination rather than fancy graphics. The ambient music is very nice and effect of gradually building up creating mystery and awe in player's perception on path to the Crown of Wishes is well done and a great experience.

I got all three endings and I appreciate the replayability. Getting the Rose and Hand endings are easy and provide relaxed gameplay in cool environment, while getting the Fern (nymph) ending turns the game into a challenging puzzle game.

Only reason my score is not maximum is because the game is ultimately short even with all three endings. The spoiled Zelda player in me asks for more abilities an upgrades in game and more length in between them.

I LOVE this game. Neat graphics, fair difficulty, really cool chiptune ambient sounds and plain good gameplay. Got the three endings. I like the writing a lot, it adds a ton to the general feeling. You can cheat the nymph by keeping the x button pressed though, you should fix that. I'll keep an eye on your content!
