In Hyrulean Adventure there are eight additional multiplayer mini games to be unlocked if you play through the game with two or more players. You gain access two a new mini game by finding one of Tingle’s Towers after the second stage of each level. Here you will find a run-down of all the mini games, which serve as nice add-ons to the main quest of the game.
The first and fastest mini game of the bunch. Here you will have to keep your eyes on the clock as well as the force points, as both will count when Tingle announce the winner. As you go under trees, the view will switch to the GameBoy Advance screen, which can prove to be quite tricky at times.
Twenty mad Cuccos have broken free from the pen, and you and your friends have to get them home again. The Cuccos come in two different sizes, and some of them will even hide underground. To win this you have to have super quick reactions, and make good use of all your abilities.
The rules are as simple as they are in real life – The first one to hold the hammer for more than sixty seconds is the loser. And the only way to get rid of the hammer, is to bash someone else in the head with it!
This almost serves as an extra dungeon, as it utlizes the same game mechanics. It is all about finding those enemies and vanquishing them, and at the same time collecting as many force points as possible. The game is over as soon as all the enemies have been defeated.
Fight the Fat Lady
It ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings, and this time you have to fight her before it’s over! She will toss out a ball of a specific colour, and then the corresponding Link will have to hit the ball back at her. If your friends don’t play well here, there is no way to actually defeat the fat lady, so be sure you have some skilled friends.
This game works similar to the old arcade classic “Whack-a-Mole”. You have the hammer, and you have enemies popping up under you all the time. But be warned, not all enemies are to be whacked, so you have to be careful not to hit the wrong ones.
Loads of Enemies with Swords
The objective is simple, actually doing it can turn out to be somewhat more frustrating. In this game hordes and hordes of enemies will keep coming at you, and you have to defeat them down to the last one. Play with only one friend to make it as difficult as possible!
Fight the Force Points
These enemies are some clever bastards. They have disguised themselves as force points, and the second you come close, they will come to life and fight you with a sword. This mini game also works as an extra mini dungeon, just like “Monster Hunting”.
