Summary: From Software's 3D Dot Game Heroes is a complete homage to the 2D Legend of Zelda games, so much so that it would have been considered more than an imitation if it had released 20 years ago. A few other classic NES-era games get referenced, but Zelda is what the entirety of this release is based on. If you've played a 2D Zelda game, then you've played 3D Dot Game Heroes, but with a game-changing item. 3DDGH's catch is that it's retro.
Short, difficult, unforgiving, fun, homage to classic Zelda games.

Summary: 3D Dot Game Heroes exists all over the spectrum as a love letter to The Legend of Zelda. On one end, it's a perfect recreation of a style of game that doesn't really exist anymore on home consoles: top-down, simple adventure. No leveling up, just slicing enemies with your giant sword.
Summary: 3D Dot Game Heroes feels like an updated classic. If you enjoyed Zelda back on the NES, SNES or any Gameboy handheld, your in for a treat. The gameplay is simple but still challenging. The music fits the game nicely. The sounds are classic. The graphics basically consists of a legos look. There are about 20 different swords in the game which are upgradable. Classic side-arms like the bomb, bommerang, bow&arrow, grappling hook and more. Dozens of avatars to choose from.
Summary: 3D Dot Hereos is very much like the original Zelda game on the NES. I have enjoyed playing this game for its old retro like qualities and the new effects of modern day as well. There are several swords you can use and upgrade and some special weapons available as well. The classic boomerang, bow and bombs from Zelda with some new twists to them. I enjoyed this game for what it is.
