Got through the first dungeon. That boss was an @55. Died the first time, but I was careful the second go around and got through without much of a problem (even if it took forever, lol).

This is a great game, definitely equal to the first Kid Icarus! Love the levels, especially the fact that you can fall down and explore more instead of just dying the moment you fall off-screen like in the first game. Also, the life system helps you to preserve all the items and hearts that you've collected, at least until you get a game over (or if you're in a fortress). While the first game was awesome too, it was occasionally cheap with the difficulty: all those deaths due to falling (particularly in the underworld), and always losing your hard-earned hearts, issues which have thankfully been fixed in OMAM.

The music is also pretty catchy, particularly the first world and the fortress theme. The only thing I had a few doubts about was that you actually have to kill enough enemies in a stage to extend your lifebar, but with a little practice, it shouldn't be too hard to earn that extra energy.

Your parlor tricks don't amuse me, boy!

The health upgrades were handled the same way in the NES game, but I think the GB one is less strict on the required points. (Don't know for sure, but it definitely feels less strict!)

This was...uh...extremely easy. I laid down restore points every so often, but never actually had to load them once. I even figured I'd look up fortress maps if I needed them, and never did. Definitely feels like Kid Icarus Jr. Very good, but an enormous step down in difficulty. For better or worse.

I beat the original Kid Icarus for the first time ever with the 3D classics version, and to be honest I found the complaints about its difficulty to be somewhat baffling. Other than the last labyrinth level, it didn't really feel like much of a challenge at all. (And that was only because I kept getting lost, until I drew my own map to let me get through, which was way more satisfying than looking up a map online.) The first stage was average in terms of difficulty, but then it got easier as it went along and I became ridiculously overpowered. Not to mention that all of the boss fights were a complete cakewalk. So with that in mind, I'm a little disheartened to read so many people say that this game is so much easier than the first. I blindly purchased it as soon as it went up, but I haven't put any time into it thanks to Rabi Laby 2. Based on what I've been reading in this thread I'm starting to regret that decision.

So glad this finally came to the US!!
Really feels smooth.

@accc I've played the Wii VC version and the 3DS classics version and the 3DS one seems to be easier actually. Still really like both versions.

Just got through the second dungeon. Overall the game is easier than the first, but the bosses are harder, IMO.

I believe it was possible to play through Kid Icarus a second time with everything you collected on your first run. Kind of like a New Game +. I guess there are multiple endings.

Yep!
But it's worth noting that New Game+ is not in 3D Classics: Kid Icarus in the eShop. :/

Beat it! Orcos was by far the easiest boss in the game, but he was also the most fun (also the most evil looking thing I've ever seen from Nintendo, lol).

He'll be a nice addition to my VC Boss Run (I always create a restore point at the beginning of every final boss fight, so I can fight them whenever I want, and sometimes I like to play 5 or so final bosses back to back).

That can only be a good thing. I've played through 3D Classics: Kid Icarus about 5 times now, and having full power ups at the start would just take away the intended challenge of the earlier levels, and make it all more boring.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I find the game to be a bet too easy, I have already max out my arrow power, and beat the 2nd boss quickly.
I know the game is a gameboy game, but it looks butt ugly, the NES one was a lot nicer looking but on this, I can't tell if pit is wearing pants or not.

Based on the comments in this thread, I'm unable to determine if Of Myths and Monsters should be recommended to fans of the NES original or not. :(

Should I just save my money for something else?

@Nintenbro I personally think it's worth it, but I'm not too good at it. I still enjoy what it brings to the table though.

I found the game to be very easy, should have save that cash for WarioLand II, a way better game.
