    The legend of zelda. An absolute classic that you generally can't go wrong copying... albeit it often seems to come up short. Top down puzzle based dungeon crawlers are a great genre in my opinion. It has a little variety of fighting monsters, finding equipment to be able to get past obstacles, and puzzle solving.

    This game is cross-buy between ps4 and vita, so for one low price you can get 35 trophies that includes a platinum in 6-10 hours. Twice.

    I played through the game normally. The game holds your hand a bit by showing you where your next dungeon is located so you dont have to waste your time searching the map like you have to do in the old zelda games. The puzzles are nice, varied, and a some of them a bit tricky. There are some good guides online if you get stuck. I used them a couple times when a puzzle was taking me a bit to figure out because I wanted to finish and rush the trophies that day. I normally like solving puzzles in games I enjoy though.

    You get most of your trophies by doing various things around town. Finding items. Beating a mini game at the arcade. Playing with your dog. It's a cute little game that offers some challenge as well. You are probably going to want to use a guide looking for the fisherman at every location he moves to, and finding all the feathers scattered around the island. But those clean up quickly at the end.

    I gave it 3 stars out of 5 which by my scale is a good game. I enjoyed it, but honestly I had no interest in the story it told or the characters I met. It was a pretty world in a nice game that just felt a bit empty. I played it as a zelda clone and while enjoying the gameplay, I have to admit it's not very memorable. If you are a trophy hunter, I highly recommend it though. The trophies are simple as the high completion ratio shows. As a matter of fact that's how it landed on my radar in the first place. I got it on sale, I think for $3 or $4. It was well worth the price of admission.
