A Zelda Fan's Paradise

I just wanted to say how much I love the fact that Duolingo reminds me of my favorite videogame series. I mean, just look at it. I have three hearts per lesson. I can buy heart potion. The lingots look just like red rupees from Skyward Sword. It's almost like I was meant to be here.

I have to mention A Link to the Past... because while Ocarina is the best, it owes it's existence to it's Super Nintendo predecessor. Twilight was also modeled after the same Light/Dark world setup.

As for my personal favorite, it's hard to say between Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker.

I whole-heartedly agree! Even though it may not have been the best overall, it is a cornerstone of the Zelda legacy.

If you poke around Duolingo's HTML code, you'll see CSS class/id named like: .rupee-store-items, .icon-rupee-small, .num-rupees. I don't think it's such a stretch to presuppose that at one point in its development that Lingot used to be called Rupee, and who knows where that development codename comes from.

Majora's Mask forever... Although Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time were beautiful too.

Also if you look at the source code, you can see that Duolingo implemented a "quarter of heart" feature, to allow losing a quarter heart when peeping!

Ohh.... oh. Red rupees were wayyy before Skyward Sword :) but you're right. It's great.

Oh believe me, I know. But the ones on skyward sword are like huge and almost roundish compared to the ones in the older games. That's why I said it looked like those, they have the same fullness instead of the sharp look that the ones in like ocarina of time and stuff had =)
