Link and Toon Link refill the player's arrows. Zelda and Sheik refill the player's hearts. These can only be used once a day.
Ganondorf will cause the player to take double damage. It will turn the heart meter blue and the effect will stack with hero mode.
Wolf Link unlocks a special dungeon for Wolf Link called the Trial of the Beast. The player cannot transform in this dungeon and must fight the enemies as the Wolf form.
The dungeon gets harder as the player progresses and some environmental hazards like lava can be introduced. Tapping the Wolf Link amiibo will create a save with the same number of hearts as the player did.
The player can access this save from tapping the amiibo on the title screen. Completing this dungeon will give the player the Bottomless Wallet which has a Cap of 9999 rupees.
The game received rather mixed reviews for a Legend of Zelda game, but was still well received overall, with a score of 85 on Metacritic. While critics did say that it was a solid port, many said this version failed to fix many of the original's flaws such as the slow opening. On whatoplay.com, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD holds an aggregate score (playscore) of 9.08 based on 48 critics and 14,600+ gamer ratings.
