Thanks to the great addition of games to the TG-16 library by Steen, I have been experiencing the Zelda-Ripoff-Excitement of Neutopia
While somehow having less inspired graphics and music than the original-and-still-champ-een, while running on a more 'advanced' system, I still find plenty to enjoy
about this game. That wand, by the way, is basically the Zelda boomerang, candle and full-life sword all in one, and it burns the hell out of whole trees - excellent! Much like what I always say about Deadly Towers
, it has enough internal consistency, and enjoyable familiar and fun elements to make it really a good time to play. Perhaps the largest downside is the need to carefully write down a 24 character password whenever you're done playing - complete with percents and octothorpes(#) - no battery backup here! Of course that is good and bad, as anyone who has lost an adventure 40 hours in the making due to battery quirkiness can tell you. I will hope to get some screen shots up, and may even make it a feature.
