Summary: A game from Zelda. A pity it didn't arrived for the Americas, as I needed to play it and my japanese is bad I went for the European version. A must play game with some unique elements, a lot of fun things, related to the Zelda franchise and rare to find in the Americas.
Summary: I recently ordered this game and it arrived today, 3 days early! Even though I chose standard shipping. It's a very reasonable price and cheaper than the ds games in my country of residence including shipping. I was worried about purchasing this game because I had watched a few of videos on youtube where the vlogger had bought a game online and it had turned out to be fake, I must say that when I opened it I was extremely happy to find a genuine ds game inside!
Summary: Since his first appearance in Majoras Mask, Americans have shown such hatred towards the character that he was removed from the series altogether, with a few a cameos left in. Tingle however was so popular in Japan that Vanpool created this Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, and I would like to add how lucky we are to have this game in Europe. The game plays out like a cross between Zelda and Wario ware.
Summary: An engaging little game which gets progressively harder as it goes on. Basically you are trying to reach Rupee land, which is a kind of seventh heaven in Tingle's world. You do this via a tower which you feed with rupees to make it grow. You get rupees in various ways- collecting items, making recipes- both of which you can sell in town. You can find treasure chests, defeat monsters and steal jewels etc etc. But beware- everything has a price!
Summary: Such was the dislike of Tingle amongst North Americans that Eiji Aonuma decreed that he be removed from any future Zelda games. Which seemed a bit harsh at the time and has backfired quite magnificently with the character being granted his own full blown spin-off. On the surface it's a bit like a traditional Zelda, and there are dozens of grin-inducing nods and winks to the series throughout, but I found the importance of money (you have to haggle for everything and most...
Summary: This game doesn't fulfill it's potential. Quirky characters, story and game play are all great in principle but for me it doesn't deliver. I admit I haven't gotten very far into the game - but I hope you'll understant that this counts towards the review. It just hasn't held my interest to want to go back to time after time. It's biggest downfall is it's lack of intiutive play on the DS.
Excerpt: First appearing in Majora's Mask on the N64 and given more screentime in the Wind Waker, Tingle has certainly made a lasting impression on Zelda players. At best annoying and at worst just a bit too much on the sinister side the grown man dressed up in a pixie outfit and with a soft spot for rupees has made fans hate him and love him in equal measures. What nobody was quite expecting was the pixie freak to get his very own game.
Pros: Quite quirky | Lots to do
Cons: Hard to control | Dungeons quite simple | The bartering
