Zelda II

I recently started to seriously play this game. I've never really tried it out before except in passing. It was so different from the first one and then A Link to the Past went back to the style of the first one. It was included as a game on the NES Classic Edition, so I decided to give it a shot. Once you get past the differences, it is a pretty fun game. The RPG elements are nice, even if a little frustrating at first, the action platformer suits Link, and the graphics are pretty good. I'm reminded of Gargoyle's Quest II with the overworld to platformer, a little bit of Castlevania II with the villagers, a little Faxandu mixed in there and then wrapped together in a Legend of Zelda skin.

My problem with the game is the horrible hints and general blundering to find the next step. To talk to one of the wise men, the one daughter tells you she lost her mirror. In Midoro Swamp. I searched every inch of all three swamps near the town and came up empty handed. I beat the palace and got the handy glove. Still no mirror. Checked online out of frustration and it was under a table in an abandoned house. I never would have figured that out. It did not feel like a puzzle and there were no real clues, it was a random item to find by luck. Then trying to cross over to the other side of the river. I had to talk to a little sleeping blob several times before he told me what I needed to know. Again, not really a puzzle but just bashing your head against the wall until it crumbles. And certain walls like that don't crumble. I thought the Eyes of Ganon had something to do with crossing the river. I killed so many fake villagers it wasn't funny. That wasn't the key to crossing. How was I supposed to know to keep trying to wake the blob until it finally spoke. After three times of zzz... I gave up trying to talk to it. Well apparently it had to be prodded 4 or 5 times. It is instances like this that have cut the enjoyment of the game down for me. Give me clues, give me riddles, let me figure out the puzzle. Like the first one did, vague hints about where things were but made sense when you figured it out. Or specifically telling you what to do when you met the right person. But this one seems to have a bit more blundering and luck involved. No one said anything about finding a mirror in town, no it said Midoro Swamp.

I am trying to push these frustrations aside so I can now find my way through Death Mountain and get the hammer. Hopefully I won't run into anymore tasks that aren't explained or hinted at.

Re: Zelda II

I think I have played Golden Axe Warrior. I believe it was on the Sega Genesis collection on the PS3. That was a few years ago that I last played that and at the time, didn't spend as much playing older games. I haven't played the other one.

I will give them both a shot. Thanks for the suggestions. Sega did make some good ripoffs. Streets of Rage comes to mind.
