Fun Classic 8-Bit Zelda-esque Game Marred Only by Touch Controls

I bought this game a few months back out of sheer nostalgia - I played this game back in the day on the Sega Master System to get my Zelda fix (I didn't have a NES). It's a good game, especially if you pine for classic action-adventure games. The dungeons aren't as puzzle-y as Zelda's were, making it the inferior game, but it is colorful and full of cool different areas to explore.

Prior to this latest update, the emulation and UI overlay was barebones - functional, but nothing to brag about. The latest update surprisingly includes Game Center support (achievements) and a vastly improved UI. The only nitpick about the new UI controls is that they aren't as transparent as the original barebones UI, so it can be a little more difficult to see in the corners. Touch virtual pad/button still has problems, but that's more of a issue with the device than the game. I've only played through the 2nd "area", and seems like one of the achievements is glitched - I didn't get the one for buying the first crystal for some reason.

If you have no interest in classic 8-bit action adventures, this won't appeal to you. But if you do, this fits the bill if you can deal with some occasionally flaky virtual pad touch controls.

A blast from the past

When I saw this was ported to the iphone from the old Sega Master System I was excited. I picked it up as soon as I saw it. The actual port is decent, albeit the spawn rate of monsters was tweaked to be lower which made the game slightly more of a grind when I needed money. That is my only complaint though. And for clarification for those reading other reviews, this is not an original DotEmu game, therefore the controls are probably about as responsive as the original d-pad on the SMS and no this game wasn't on the NES.

Great idea, poor execution

Controls are difficult, but I expected that having worked with the on-screen controls before. What I didn't expect was that it would lock up when loading a saved game like it does. It seems to load fine after dying the first time; however, after dying a second time, the only way to get off of the load screen seems to be to reboot the phone.

I really enjoyed the old Sega version of this game; this is quite a disappointment.
