Is it like a sequel or is it a whole new Zelda game?
It's basically a remake of OoT. With rearranged dungeon puzzles. The Bosses are the same though. And the overworld is exactly the same as in OoT.
The tyrants ideal: To get a dog to carry it's own whip and being proud of it.
In addition to the dungeon design being completely overhauled, they also throw harder enemies at you earlier on. For example, the armored guy in the Spirit Temple that takes several hits to defeat and can deal four hearts worth of damage in a single hit was found in the Water Temple in the Master Quest version. Personally, I thought it was a lot of fun since it gave the game a sense of freshness to it.
Currently re-playing many old games while waiting for new ones to be released.
The puzzles are different, they're harder to figure out, the enemies are more difficult early on, and mistake in the Spirit Temple can make you need to restart the game.
"abandon all hope, ye who enter here"
Can I ask what the Spirit Temple problem is?
