    An Excellent Farewell to Sprite-based Zelda 0

    The Minish Cap is the first and likely will be the only original Zelda game for the Game Boy Advance.  Any chance of ever putting the Zelda series in some semblance of chronological order has long dissolved, and Minish Cap proves that.  The game gives yet another take on the land of Hyrule by mixing elements from almost every single Zelda game of old.  Hyrule Castle is of course present, as is the Lon Lon Ranch.  Link's house, where he lives with his uncle of course, is still just south of t...

    Short but sweet 0

    The Legend of Zelda – The Minish Cap continues the collaboration between Capcom and Nintendo established with the Oracle games on GameBoy Color.  What makes Minish Cap exciting is the combination of the new shrinking game play mechanic and a return to colorful 2d graphics.  Featuring entirely new tilesets and character sprites in the vein of Four Swords Adventures, Minish Cap is one of the last 2D Zelda games released. A Wrinkle in Zelda’s Mythology Appears The story starts off with a b...

    The Minish Cap is a great mix of classic Zelda and new ideas. 0

    The young Link sleeps in at his uncle Smith’s house, enjoying a good rest before heading into Hyrule Town for the Picori Festival. And why not? Link knows he'll need all of his enegry to see everything the festival has to offer. Princess Zelda, precocious as always, can’t wait that long. She barges right into the Smith’s front door to collect the tournament champion's ceremonial sword and grab her young friend Link. As she pulls him groggily out of bed, his blond hair still mussed, she sets off ...

    The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap Review 0

    The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap, does a great job of bringing the epic adventures of Link to the GBA, and exceeds on many levels that make it an awesome game.The Minish Cap starts off with Link in his old house and is awoken by Princess Zelda to attend a festival in Hyrule Town with her. Later on, with princess Zelda at the Hyrule Castle, a new villian named Vaati intrudes the castle grounds and ends up breaking a sacred sword called the Picori Blade. He then puts a curse on the princess, which ...

    One of the Better Zelda Games in the Series 0

    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap for Game Boy AdvanceThe Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is great! I was a wary for a while because Capcom made it rather than Nintendo, but once I got my hands on it, my fears were quickly diminished. This is a Zelda game in every sense of the word. You have a top-down action adventure with an overworld, you have dungeons to defeat, various monsters to fight and items & treasures to discover, and plenty of side quests & side games to keep you coming ba...

    Flagship is much more capable than this. 0

    NOTE: This review was written by me years ago, but I've uploaded it to GB. Enjoy!*************It’s been a long time, but the GBA finally gets its first original Zelda title. It seems that no Nintendo system is complete without the big N’s major franchises making an appearance. It was only a matter of time before Zelda’s turn came next. Unfortunately, Zelda: Minish Cap is one of the weaker Zelda games to come around in a while, thus it may not feel as satisfying as the previous games do.In Minish...

    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap 0

    The Minish Cap is a solid if unspectacular entry in the Zelda franchise. It's awfully pretty (especially when it's showing off its smaller, more detail oriented animations), it sounds exactly how you expect a Zelda game to sound (which is to say "great"), and the the game's Hyrule is packed with secrets and fun to explore. But where it really excels is in its pacing. By futzing with the series standard dungeon format and decreasing the number of temples, the game flows like a dream, dispatching ...
