Genre Action / RPG
Series The Legend of Zelda Series

Tingle is an average, middle-aged man living in Hyrule. A divine message leads him to a magical spring where Old Man Rupee resides. A curse is placed on Tingle, forcing him to gather rupees so the way to Rupeeland can be opened.

Tingle's curse ties his life directly to the amount of rupees he holds. If he runs out of rupees, Tingle will die. He can get rupees by speaking to the various villagers and completing their minigames, but the amount of money depends on how good your bartering skills are.

As well as managing your finances (and life) by playing games, drawing maps and doing battles, you can also earn rupees by defeating monsters.
