Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
|Patching Information||No Special Requirements|
|Hack Release Date||03 March 2014|
|Last Modified||14 February 2015|
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.

Confusing but funReviewed By: SKmuffinEXE on 11 Feb 2015
Took me 3 days to beat this hack in the 4.0 version. I feel like the 4.0 version is a lot more balanced. Though sadly there was a few puzzles I wasn’t able to find the intended way to beat and had to glitch through using my knowledge of how the game works, so this can be a bit confusing. My advice for those is that if you can’t figure out what to do next, simply just do everything you can think of. Should probably take advantage of the owl statues also… I never did though cause of habit.
All in all, gonna be playing this hack a lot more in the future.
