One has to admire WayForward’s devotion to the concept. They always deliver a straight and true version of the thing they set out to create. So when they set out to create an Adventure Time adaptation with the structure of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, it comes as no surprise that they’ve delivered exactly that. For better or worse. The aging formula may not have the legs to withstand modern expectations but WayForward makes the most of it. With the collaboration of series creator Pendleton Ward, there is also an authenticity to the franchise’s authorial voice that acts as the glue holding it all together.
