Completed with 100% item collection and upgrades. Blossom Tales II is very deliberately following the template of classic 2D Zelda games, especially so A Link to the Past. In its gameplay mechanics there's very little here that's original - usable items range from a standard sword and shield, to bombs and a bow, and even bottles for potions; there's an overworld and several more puzzle-focused self-contained 'dungeons'; upgrades come from quarter hearts and energy fragments; and plenty more! All this aside, the game does a really excellent job of capturing that classic Zelda feel, with meticulous level design and balance, a wide range of (simple) quests and a fun story (albeit lacking the 'epic' feel that Zelda games typically evoke). That really sums up the experience here, and Blossom Tales II is just wonderfully fun to play despite being nearly entirely unoriginal - and sometimes, that's all the counts!

Blossom Tales 2 improves upon almost every aspect of the original. The sprite art is more detailed, the cuteness is dialed up, the writing is sharper, the dungeons more finely tuned, nothing overstays its welcome. It is an ode to the childhood of someone who grew up in the 80's.
