Absolutely essential

Reviewed By: Chiffon on 22 Mar 2017

Oracle of Ages is a great game, but one thing I always had issue with was the font used; being fixed-width, the characters were too big in text boxes that don’t have much space to begin with, and just didn’t look very good in the first place.

This hack fixes all of that beautifully! Not only is the new font much more aesthetically pleasant, it most importantly takes up less space and is more readable, improving the play experience considerably.

If you’re playing Oracle of Ages, you have no reason to not use this hack.
