Just beat the game. And for me, the mark of an excellent game was there: I immediately dove back into my save file to get everything I missed. Best money spent on a game in recent memory, no question. I'll probably do a couple more playthroughs until Mario Maker 2 next week.

@rallydefault couldn't agree more. I'm going back soon to do a run through of zelda now. I did link almost entirely the first time.

@NintendoByNature
Same - was Link the entire way. Used today to go back into the same file and get everything with Cadence, though - she's pretty cool. (Got the secret character and everything - very cool!)

But yea, gonna start a playthrough with Zelda now. It's gonna be weird not having the shield, but her abilities seem pretty cool.

It's just so amazing how this game is a love letter to old-school fans like myself (combining the Minish-like graphics and what feels like the world ripped straight from Link to the Past) while appealing to new-to-the-series or not even Zelda fans with the music/rhythm genre. 2D Zeldas are the reason I'm a gamer, so this is just beyond fantastic!

@rallydefault I started a new file for zelda yesterday night and already about 2 hours in and death mountain/ dungeon down. Its a little different playing as zelda but I feel like she has better items. I never used the shield as link all that often honestly. It just seemed harder. Unless there was an octorok then id use it. She has nayrus love i believe which acts as a shield. One problem I encountered last night was getting a chest..you know how certain chests give you the ability to pick a special item to keep ( better shield, long shot etc), well I accidentally kept moving forward and picked what I believe is a shield but it's not in my inventory.. I wasn't able to see all 3 items to pick 1 so I wasted a special ūüė† lol. Either way, I'm having tons of fun on my 2nd play through. And I'm doing SOOOOO much better in the beginning than I did on my 1st play through now that I understand the game. And the music is stuck in my head ALLLLLL DAYYYY. I love it though. This was the appetizer I needed before links awakening comes.

I want to love this game sooo badly. Everything about it is awesome and the whole idea of re-imagining ALTTP as a rhythm game is too cool to ignore.

But I am getting DESTROYED! I'm roaming around the overworld narrowly unlocking stones. I found the fortune teller who told me I should be going to the frozen lake. I got into the frozen lake with much difficulty and repeating of areas. But every time I even attempt the dungeon I get slaughtered within 15 seconds of respawn over and over and over and over and over again...... Too many enemies I can't keep track, and losing everything each time keeps it feeling more frustrating than fun....which is also frustrating because I adore the game concept. I just can't seem to successfully play it.... ( @Ralizah it's probably more fair than the first I never played...but.....for me it's near impossible, it would seem.)

@NEStalgia trust me i had the same issue. It didn't click with me until about 3 hours in or so on my first play through. How many hearts do you have? I recommend not hitting up any dungeons without 6 or so hearts. Try to look in the over world for as many heart pieces as you can. Spend diamonds as soon as you can for upgrades. Grab some bottles ( I found 2 but there could be more). I know this sounds easy but after you get the rhythm down and get some more health and different long range weapons which are the best, it gets so much easier. I don't want to tell you what to do but if you stick with it which I highly recommend, youll begin to love it. Its just that initial couple hours are so brutal you end up hating it at first. Maybe hold off on dungeons until you're well equipped. Once you start blasting thru enemies in the over world youll be ready for the dungeons

@NintendoByNature Ahh, yeah I have 3 hearts still.....I'll keep trawling the overworld then. Reminds me of how I played Zelda 1 Don't you lose hearts when you die though? Or you keep the heart containers/pieces?

What upgrades should one spend diamonds on? Is there anything other than buying the one-off shovel etc in the re-spawn store that you're just going to lose again when you die?

Edit: It's also one of those rare games that are much easier on joycons than Pro controller since the individual buttons work so well for this game vs. a real D-Pad. Though I do think I have awful rhythm

@NEStalgia there's your problem my guy.. 3 hearts youll just get annihilated lol. You don't lose heart containers or pieces when you find them. Same with weapons. You do lose shovels though and rings from what I understand. When you respawn buy heart containers. When you see heart pieces get them. Explore every nook and cranny before getting into a dungeon. Look for blue butterflies in the over world ( I don't want to say anything else and spoil why). Look for cracks in walls ( per the usual), as for diamonds. There are shops besides the respawn screen that take that currency. Just keep grabbing as many weapons and upgrades as possible. Get a bottle early on if you can. Store fairies or red potion per the usual lol. Its the hardest zelda game in the beginning then it becomes one of the easiest if not the easiest as you level up.

Hmm, that's encouraging! I was getting mauled in the overworld too, but at least I was making progress there finding sheikah stones. I'll have to keep exploring there. i was skipping some areas that had heart pieces just to make sure to unlock more sheikah stones, which probably wasn't a bad plan. I have the bottom third of the map mostly available now. I'll focus on heart containers and diamonds for now! Thanks!

So far, it's going better. It's very slow going, and it's only my "quick play" game - I'm working through Vespyria currently as my "sit down for long periods of time" game, but going through more of the woverworld I was getting further. I bought 2 heart containers in the respawn store (no more there it seems), and most importantly, I bought an L-shaped flail when I found a store which REALLY changed my gameplay pace tremendously. That flail makes all the difference. Now I'm mostly just going around looking to unlock all the sheikah stones and grabbing the odd heart piece when I find one.

Oh I bought 2 bottles too but I can't remember where I found the fairy fountain.

Nice, it will pick up for sure. I started my 2nd play through a couple nights ago and I'm already on the last dungeon before hyrule castle. I can play it for hours and hours once I get going.

If you look on the map the square with the Navi style fairy in the corner is where the fairy fountain is. With the caveat you may need an additional map item for it to be revealed as I picked up a few items and just I skipped the text explaining what they do.

Any tips on how to get missed key items? I've completed the four main dungeons and got all but one blue chest on the world map, but I'm still missing key items e.g. fire rod and can't progress.

@Buizel I just checked my save file and i didn't need (or get) the fire rod to beat the game.

@NintendoByNature hmmm how does one get past the second set of doors in Hyrule Castle then, after picking up the rapier? . I'm terrible at puzzle solving in this game!

@Buizel unfortunately I can't read your question as it's blocked out. I really wish I can help you more. All I can say is as for finishing the game you dont need the fire rod. Hope that helps
