I spoke too soon, it seems, since Dungeon 8 is hard. Very hard. No Wizzrobes (yet), but loads of recycled previous dungeon bosses (although it hasn’t gone all SuckySuck(TM) quite yet), and blue Dark Nuts. And not just Blue Dark Nuts either – but gargoyles that shoot fireballs at me at the same time, so I can’t even use the same Dark Nut killing tactics I had previously as that requires standing still (and therefore, getting shot).
And! To make it even worse, there’s a door I need to get through which won’t open until I’ve killed them. And when I do kill them, they all come back when I need to go through that room again! RUBBISH.
I do have the Magic Book (or whatever it is called) now though. It lets my Rod shoot magic bolts which burn stuff. Shame it doesn’t work on the Dark Nuts. Nor on the (almost as irritating) mouse/rabbit things.
