Cadence of Hyrule
It’s rare when we see Nintendo, a company that’s so protective of their IP, hand off their precious characters to other developers, especially of the indie kind.
But Cadence of Hyrule is a fantastic version of Crypt of the Necrodancer and you can even play as both, Zelda and Link so there’s a lot to love about this roguelike rhythm adventure game.
Every move you make in this top-down Zelda title, obviously taking inspiration from a Link to the Past, has to be down in the rhythm of the music playing.
Enemies have patterns that they follow as well so it’s important to learn how they move and familiarize yourself with their tells and methods of attack.
Cadence of Hyrule might seem a bit challenging at first for those who have never checked out Crypt of the Necrodancer before, but there is an option to disable the rhythm mechanics if you feel as if your rhythm is terrible.
