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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AidenKnowsBest

Yes! I have played and completed it! It is amazing!

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.

Sometimes I like to give my page a make over with the css properties when I get bored!

You rock for pointing this out. Now I can love yet another great thing about Duolingo.

You better take care of it then! I can't handle seeing the deku tree die again ,_,


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NichitaG

yeah, like , i always thought of that , i thought no one would notice!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/diegozerme

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.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/queensuzanna

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 =)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VforVendetta511
