This is a project I worked on over the last 6 months. It's a completely new Zelda II adventure that will challenge even the most experienced Zelda II fans & people who enjoy a challenge.

This hack is a hardtype and I'm not holding anything back with the difficulty. Don't expect enemies to take more hits then usual, the difficulty lies more in the design of the caves, palaces, random encounters, & enemy placement.

This hack is much longer then the original game because of the size of the overworld areas, caves, & palaces. Death mountain and maze island are around the same size as east/west hyrule and I used all the warp points to have more caves and bridges. It will be a long journey from the start to the palaces but there's custom coding to allow you to restart at every palace if you game over thanks to njosro.

Another feature of this romhack njosro helped with is respawning enemies. If you leave any sideview screen and return the enemies will be back (just like random encounters). I made use of as many sideview areas as possible and because enemy data is limited there's not enough enemy data to fill every scene so instead of some scenes being empty I made enemies respawn. There will be longer caves and deeper palaces.

In my last hack "New Adventure of Link" there were a few design ideas that bothered me such as the ground sometimes being at the same height as lava because there is a certain spot you stand on the edge where you would just die, I don't have that in this romhack. Another thing was not changing the towns at all, it didn't give a feeling like it's a totally new game. I put much more effort into this hack and took more time to design everything compared to only 2 months I spent on my first romhack.

My overall goal was to completely redesign everything so it feels like playing a new Zelda II. It's got a new story, overworld, caves, palaces, towns, item order, random encounters, and more. All the overworld/sideview is hand designed and nothing in the romhack is randomized.

Release date is: February 5th 2018
