It's 6€ here, $8,67. I'd pay it in a heart beat if eShop would accept my card :S No problems anywhere ever, before this...

I'm much more fond of the original Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: Link's Awakening back in the Nes era. But then came ALTTP and Link's Awakening. I remember back at my friends place, whenever I'd pick up his GB and plug away at LA I could never pass that damn dungeon with those pond skater bugs in that water dungeon(or was it?) based on my memory. I was competely stuck and had no idea what to do. But based on everything up until that point, It was easily the best experience I've ever had on the GB.

I'm thinking weather i should download it before OOT 3D comes out, or play it afterwards.

This has always been one of my favorite Zelda experiences... I'd rate it above both Lttp and Ocarina of Time, to be honest. The puzzle and dungeon design is perfect, with clever little ideas throughout plus a polish and tight organization that is remarkable.

I've never played the color / DX version before, and I just reached the new dungeon (the hidden color dungeon, or whatever it's called) that they added for this version. I can't tell you how great it is to finally get to play the new dungeon in one my all-time favorite games.

I remember when I played this for the first time... I was floored at how awesome it was to JUMP. At will. Seriously, coolest Zelda powerup ever.

Gonna download this later today. :3

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

if i wasn't so bound by nostalgia to love the original Zelda and Link to the Past, I'd probably be able to rightfully conclude that this is the strongest 2d entry in the series. Like wario said, the overall design is crazy-strong--perfect pacing, great hidden locations, and arguably the best use of the GB's pitiful resolution ever. DQ3 did a mighty fine job too, though...

The nostalgia is strong with this one, for me. This was only my second Zelda game, after the original NES game. I skipped Zelda 2 originally, because I didn't like the sideways view, and then I only owned a GB and not an SNES after that, so I played this one next. It wasn't until many years later that I went back and played Link to the Past, and I thought it was great but not nearly as good as Link's Awakening.

Anyone get through the hidden color dungeon yet? That decision at the end was hard for me, seeing as it presumably affects the rest of the game. I chose red at first, then didn't like the way it affected all fighting, so I restored and chose blue instead.

I did the math, and it's 5.40 dollars here in Mexico :D

I got my blue tunic, i don't know where i heard this but i think you can go back, re-beat the dungeon and change tunics anytime.
... You can't go back to green though.

I can't believe all the people complaining about the price. You can't manage six measly dollars?

If your unfortunate to live in the UK or Europe you are looking a NINE dollars not SIX. Does it look as much as a bargain now.
Also bear in mind that the price of our Retail titles are $65 you would start to see why we would get a bit peeved at the price.

@ Raptor78
Wow really that much huh? I'm glad I don't live in Europe or anywhere with such high prices.
Still anyone with a decent paying Job should be able to swing 9 bucks. People somehow managed when these games used to cost 30 dollars or more. These digital downloads are still less than half of their original price.
Look at PS3 games. Most of them are over 60 dollars and I don't hear too many complaints.
They say if it's worth having it's worth working for and this game is definitely worth having.

@link79 …Im not saying the game isnt good value because the quality of the game can give a lot of modern games a run for its money and I would fork out the cash. My only issue is that the eShop should be more fairly priced in that all countries should be paying the same. I used to pick up 2000 points for £12 - £15 which would have been right against the $, but now its in a cash amount the prices dont all match up. If you get it for $6 then obviously I want it for $6, that is only fair as im sure you would agree. So im not saying the games over priced as such, but it could do wirh more fairer pricing world wide.

Looks like the glitches are still intact. I was out adventuring by the shore, then I randomly got a red tunic, complete with the benefits of extra power. I was considering a green tunic-only run, but now that's out of the question. :P

I also had the game crash when I jumped on a fish in the fifth dungeon. Had to power down the 3DS completely to get out.

Apparently, you can also cheat your way out of paying for items without stealing via Save and Quit immediately after purchasing something.

I just conquered the Face Shrine, and I am amazed on how awesome this masterpiece is! It is easily one of the best Zelda games. Also, I went with the red tunic. :D

Just beat the third dungeon and am now looking around the places i havent explored yet, ignoring the desert i can't seem to find. I had no idea how much their was to explore in this game.

by the way, what do the secret seashells do when you collect a lot of them? Is their a real benefit or should i not bother searching for them?

You trade the seashells in and get an upgraded sword. There's a little hut you bring them to later in the game.

The 3DS start button is spoiling my enjoyment of this game. Why couldn't Nintendo map start to a proper button like they did with select? And why did they make such crappy start and select buttons in the first place!? That's what I what to know!

They mapped the completely useless "VC Menu" button to X. Even though tapping the screen does the same thing.
Well, since they letft R and L with no use that can only mean one thing.... GBA for VC. I'm a genious.

I'm really surprised how big this game is and it was able to fit on a Gameboy cartridge! :O There's so much to explore and a lot of secrets to find. I'm stuck again right now. I can't find the 7th dungeon. I'm stick in a cave where fire keeps shooting out and blocking my path. The difficulty in the game is pretty good too. This is my first Zelda game and I'm loving it. Glad I finally got into the series. Can't wait till OoT. Hope I beat this game in time though.
