Default Save systems for Nintendogs, Icarus, Mario 2, Mario 3, etc.

hi there,

- if you save in the middle of a dungeon in Zelda LttP, you have to start at the start of the dungeon, so it's not a good game for quick 10 minute sessions


- anybody able to tell me what the save systems are like for Nintendogs + Cats, Icarus uprising, or Mario 2 on Virtual console, or mario 3 on virtual console?


Thanks

IIRC, Nintendogs+cats saves automatically, you can save only after you complete a chapter in KI:U, and all virtual console games (well, most of them; GBA ambassador games just use the in game saves) you can save at any point and return to said point with the virtual console menu. I'll need to confirm with Nintendogs+cats and KI:U

Why not just put the system to sleep? It doesn't eat up that much power and you can always play as long as you like and pick it up later this way

Nintendogs + Cats has a save button in its home screen. The only occasions where you can't save are during competitions and walks but those don't last long(unless you want walks to last long, then you can stop to cafes, shops and parks on your way)

Thanks for the answers.

IDK.... sometimes don't have time to play for days or weeks, and not fun playing some games, say a Zelda game in 10 minutes sessions, better to block out like 1 hour or 2 of time to play a long session. Thanks for the clarification on Nintendogs too.
