This is the latest beta for evaluation purposes. Kinda stalled project at the moment. Leave feedback, expecting mostly negative, especially in difficulty.

Leaving my thoughts here so far up through level 5. The quest is pretty solid and despite your concerns about the difficulty, I don't think that's been an issue so far. Most of my major concerns are to do with telegraphing and your long standing quest continuity when I believe you should restart for the convenience of new players. Here's my list of assorted nitpicks, should you choose to address them:
  • The bomb pickup string always replaying after death is rather annoying. If possible it should only play once, if not, maybe bombs don't need a string.
  • The music resetting on picking up item cellar items and passing through passageways seems odd. The quest has a lot more modern features and isn't being made for a Zelda 1 quest contest anymore, so I question the purpose of that rule being on.
  • While I believe most of the dungeon entrances have been hinted at so far, I was not able to decipher the hints prior to finding them and the cost of those hints was prohibitively expensive. The one pointing to level 4 in particular seemed rather vague if it's the one I'm thinking of (referred to trees and a whistle leading to something?)
  • I would appreciate the ability to swap items with L/R and Ex buttons. I believe 2.55 can do this but if not I can supply a script easily enough.
  • The wallet upgrade looking like a rupee almost tricked me into walking past it. I'd just make it a wallet.
