Great Hack and...

Reviewed By: IAmCaptPlanet on 15 Nov 2017

It IS compatible with the other 2 hacks (GBA mode and GBC colors) and those 3 hacks together makes this the hands-down best version of Ages.

I was kinda bummed Seasons didn’t have a VWF hack at first, but to be honest Ages is the one that really needed it. It has much more dialogue and what is there, is beautiful. Much more appealing (although not as big of an improvement as the Link’s Awakening VWF hack, because at least the Oracle games didn’t use italics for EVERYTHING).

A minor (very minor) nitpick though, the lower case U seems a little closed of at the top and slightly resembles an A. After you get used to that though, it looks much more palatable on a TV screen than the HUGE letters did before.

Also: I think it’s important to note, that this hack, does not interfere in any way with the Linked game continue system. I played Seasons first (so I wouldn’t be spoiled with the VWF on my first game, and not have it for the next) and used the Password continue system to continue my story into Ages.

I could argue that Seasons is a (slightly) better game (IMO), but I can say for sure, that Ages benefits more from having this nice font.

If you haven’t replayed Ages in a while you should be downloading this right now, but even if you are an Oracle series aficionado you owe it to yourself to play it this way.

  • –EDIT—

thousands of apologies! hear this good friends!! the lower case u in the Link’s Awakening VWF hack is a little closed off and looks a little odd. THIS ONE LOOKS FINE– ABSOLUTELY fine in fact. sorry for the mix-up. this hack is a True Perfect 10
