This was pretty nice to play, just finished it up a few mins ago with all the endings. It's nice to see an old quest like this get a revamp and become something new and fresh.

First off, the biggest improvement is the sidescrolling gameplay. The most annoying thing in the original is how you couldn't jump from the edges of blocks, and that made for some really awkward gameplay. In this, that issue is completely gone and everything feels much more fluid to play. Other than that, I haven't really noticed any other improvements in the first half besides graphics being in GB instead of FYS (which worked out nicely in most areas, not so much in others). The second half (which is more like 1/3 judging from my playtime lol) is where I think I noticed the biggest improvements. Everything felt pretty much the same up until this point, but from here it was pretty nicely done with the revamping and everything felt all new. The bonus stuff from here as well is also pretty nice as well, and added quite a bit to the quest.

I don't really have many complaints besides a few graphics things. The biggest one is that the walls can definitely use some rounding off, if that makes sense. There are tiles in the tileset that allow for wall boundaries to kinda "curve" the left and right edges, as well as ceiling and floors. Simply look at some of the oracle of ages/seasons sideview stuff to know what I mean if this isn't making any sense. I think if almost all the walls looked similar to that rather than using one tile for everything in each area, things would look nicer IMO. It worked fine for the original because of the tileset, but here I think for this tileset it doesn't work so well. It is quite a minor thing so it's not too big of a deal at all, but something I couldn't help but notice throughout the entire quest. Haven't got any other issues in terms of difficulty and other design stuff, so that's good. Also, here's a compilation of random things I found (there isn't many): Click here

Kinda hard to come up with a rating for this one. Been jumping between a 4 and 5 throughout, so I think I'll go right in the middle and go for a 4.5/5, which rounds up to a 5. Pretty good work overall and good job on remaking the original with Lunar! Looking forward to more stuff from you guys.

Still working my way through it right now.

But from what I have played so far, this is very well done.

I have not come across any bugs or glitches, has some beautiful maps/screens, and just the right amount of difficulty(at times maybe a bit too much).

Just like Aranche stated, I as well cannot wait to see another from you two.
