New Awakening

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Description:

New Awakening is a full hack of Link’s Awakening featuring broad revisions to all dungeons and textual edits, overworld edits, and sequence fixes to support a new dungeon order, as well as cosmetic edits to most dungeons and parts of the overworld. The difficulty is substantially increased, with new puzzles as well as new monster encounters, but backtracking is minimal, difficult puzzles offer subtle clues (the owl statues have been updated as well), extra resources are available where needed, and the challenges do not require save states or perfect gameplay. The game is balanced for those who have played the game once or twice, but the game is playable by newcomers as well, as the hack does not throw everything at the player at once. The difficulty begins fairly moderate and gradually increases over time. Necessary information is found in the readme. The patch is made with Lunar IPS.

Update: Various corrections have been made since the last release, removing a few bugs and graphical errors. If you see something that looks wrong, send me a personal message and I can either explain it or change it as needed.

Much better

Reviewed By: puzzledude on 08 Apr 2014

The version 2.0 really is a major improvement since 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2. It basically fixes all the previous mistakes.

You now have enough powder, since you get the upgrade early on, with a lot of powder and bomb stock flying in the air. Both: powder and bomb are now a fine substitute for the sword.

The gfx problems have been solved as well as the early glitch sword with the Like-Like.

The first dungeon has been reedited further, as well as all others. Despite the fact that the overworld is practically the same as the original and the global gameplay remains similar too, we now have some fine remodeled dungeons to play.
