I bought it earlier today and I really like what I'm playing. The dungeons are well designed and it seems like there are lots of secrets to find as well.

Go Leafs Go!

Is there an option to play this game in GB (i.e. black & white) mode?

And count your blessings, guys. In Australia, this game is a whopping $9 (inclusive of tax), which IMO, is a very high price for a rom of a primitive looking game (however good it may be). These awful prices are putting me off from buying more games. :(

Bought it. You should too. It's better than the majority of console Zeldas imo.

@sillygostly No, you can't play them in black and white. why?

Also, 9 bucks for this game is quite a good deal. This game is great, and it more than 10 hours (according to one princess). That is great value for money.

Bought it.

Best 6 euros I ever spent.

This is unarguably the best handheld game ever created.

Why would you want to play it in B&W? You can't access the Color Dungeon in monochrome mode (which means less content).

Hey guys, question for you all -

I played OOT when it was released for the Gamecube, and (please don't kill me!) found that I couldn't get into it very well. Same deal with Wind Waker.
I tried Four Swords and got into that a little more, and Link to the Past wasn't that bad, either.
Is there any chance at all that I'll enjoy Link's Awakening? I'm guessing it's closer to FS and LttP than to OOT or WW, but that's just a guess.

It is played in the same faction as the top-down Zelda's, similar to Four Swords and LttP. They're not the same games, but they are quite fun.

7-8 hours easily. More if you arent used to the puzzles and all that Zelda stuff.

Anyways, really, this game is a must have. Its THAT good.

You can easily put in 20+ hours on this, if you obsess about all secrets and finding all of the hidden shells, etc. I like to take my time in Zelda games and just explore, play, and have fun with finding secrets — instead of dashing to the next dungeon — so I can easily put in even more hours than that.

The first time I played the game It took probably 25 hours to finish it. This was without a guide of any kind.
I know the game like the back of my hand now. I can finish it in about 8 hours. One thing I loved about it is how you can steal from the shop in the starting village. How many Zelda games let you do that? Only down side to that is every character you meet will call you theif afterward. This is probably my all time favorite Gameboy game.
Most games on that system felt like half assed ports of Nes games. Not Link's awakening though.
It's a full on original Zelda Experience. Something you'll never forget.

The original b&w version has a extremely fun glitch that was removed for the DX version.

Edgey, Gumshoe, Godot, Sissel, Larry, then Mia, Franziska, Maggie, Kay and Lynne.

"Wow! This looks pretty heavy! You won't be able to lift it with just your bare hands.."

I forgot about this endlessly-repeated nugget of wisdom early in the game.

...Dang, I bumped into a rock and now I have to hear it again!
