Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King was inspired by older The Legend of Zelda games. It utilizes the same top-down perspective and offers similar gameplay mechanics such as a veriety of weapons, special items to find and dungeons to explore.
Where Blossom Tales stands out is the narrative. The game puts you in the role of a young knight named Lily. As you make your way through the game the narrative is told by Lily’s grandfather. He is telling his granddaughters a tale which in turns gives you a chance to shape the story to your liking.
