Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is an adventure strongly inspired by theLegend of Zelda saga that offers us a whole world to explore. We will have several dungeons full of challenges and puzzles, as well as several objects to get and secrets to discover. It's true that it doesn't risk too much in its development and the translation leaves a lot to be desired, but still it's a game that will keep us entertained for several hours.

... Blossom Tales stands tall even next to its legendary predecessor. It starts with its storytelling. Zelda games can get slightly repetitive with the “evil entity steals or harms the princess” arc, and admittedly, Blossom Tales doesn’t stray too far from that.

Blossom Tales proposes a wide world to explore, full of content and with enjoyable gameplay, not to mention a marvelous visual style. While the game may be trying to reach a higher status than it can, Blossom Tales certainly provides for a good adventure and exploration experience in the Nintendo Switch and it's yet another welcome addition to its growing catalogue.

Where The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke free from the long-held conventions that the green tunic-clad hero’s adventures had been built around, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King pays an irrepressibly charming tribute to them. This quest to save the Kingdom of Blossom from eternal darkness is a standout addition to the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch, and one that I’m certain many will enjoy sinking hours into.

Blossom Tales scratches an itch I have of wanting to venture through Link to the Past once a year. It is well-designed if not a bit cliché in its approach. Still for those with the same nostalgia for Link's SNES adventure, there are few games that capture it as well as this one.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is a strong indie game that’ll entertain you with its amusing dialogue, pawesome soundtrack, and stimulating gameplay. 2D Zelda fans will want to journey as Lily.
