This is an amazing piece, I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more attention. ^^
I need to get back to playing some time. I have my 3DS sitting literally less than a foot away from me, yet I haven't bothered with it because I keep getting distracted by other games. Ironically, my main distraction right now is Zelda II, thanks to this awesome emulator I found. Challenging game, but tons of fun! I wish the experience system it had would've carried on into later games in the series.
