Its a good start, just kinda lacking. Though knowing that this game is the base demo I have good hopes for it.
Edit: I think I've figured it out after replaying it. Legend of Zelda:The Minish Cap is one of my favorite games of all time. So by all accounts I should love this game, however I don't. I can't help but feel like this is a demo to Minish Cap, an alpha. The main problem with the game is the repetitive music. It's not bad at all, just repetitive. Another problem is how much the difficulty spikes when going to the third floor its just too high. Why is the shield in this game so bad? You can't use it to position your character into a more advantageous spot you'd just get hit while trying. I'd recommend fully ripping off Minish Cap's use of a shield, fixed aim in one direction. Even if the shield is garbage in regular combat I expected to need it for the boss. Spoiler I didn't need it. This is my final nit pick, make it so every item found in the dungeon is used against the boss. The only exception to this would be items bought from the shop. I hope this helps, since I want to see more of this style of game.
