Set a millennium before the events of the first game, you play a silent protagonist who's training to become a knight. When robotic invaders threaten your village, led by the evil Mesmeroth, you set out on a mission to stop him once and for all by collecting three ancient artefacts.
Play involves exploring the world on foot and by boat and defeating enemies with your weapons such as a sword or gun. As you do, you gain experience that improves your proficiency and power with the weapons you have. You also interact with the characters you meet, and can even recruit some to help you in combat and solve dungeon-style puzzles, such as pressing buttons, guiding beams of light, or flicking levers. The golden edition adds new dungeons, enhanced visuals and a new Criminal Hunt quest. It also adds an expanded ending connecting back to the first game. This is free (and only available) with Apple Arcade.
The result is a game that combines the classic 3D Zelda style of adventure, heroism, and combat with a lush world and role-play elements that let you grow in strength and build a team, making for a unique experience.

In the US, ESRB state: From a third-person perspective, players explore open-world environments, collect items/treasure, solve puzzles, and battle beastly and human-like creatures (e.g., ghosts, robots, bird- and fish-like people). Players use swords, bombs, and a magic pistol (e.g., shooting fire, electricity) to kill enemies; characters sometimes use spears and rifles to attack players. Combat is often frenetic, highlighted by explosions, impact sounds, cries of pain, and screen-shaking effects.
Rated 9+ on the Apple App Store for Infrequent/Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence.
8+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The 3D 3rd-person perspective means the controls are more complex than the first game, and the combat can occasionally be tougher as well. You need to be able to navigate the world as well as solve puzzles and take on those tough challenges.
