~Story~ In the peaceful land of Hyrule… Evil had begun to flow out of the hidden sacred realm. It was the evil of Ganon. The evil took the form of a dark mirror, and out of that mirror came the shadow of “The Hero”. Word got to the Princess Zelda that a mirror had appeared out of nowhere, Link’s shadow had come out of it, and that Link’s shadow had taken the mirror with him. Nevertheless Link’s Shadow used the mirror to create powerful shadow crystals that have the power to seal and unseal people and objects. He has placed the crystals in the hidden temples to steal the temple’s power. If the crystals steal enough power from the temple’s, then Link’s shadow can use the power to unseal Ganon! Find the crystals in the hidden temples before it’s too late, and use the crystals power to seal the mirror away! But before that Link must defeat his own shadow!

Unnecessarily hard but good fun experience

Reviewed By: ultimaweapon on 12 May 2018

I was ready to pull hairs out of my bald head with the way some of these items were hidden, enemy placement and item placement of some of the items. I also wasn’t a fan of no Magical Sword in the 2nd quest. Nonetheless, it was a fun experience. I enjoyed the layout, graphics, level design, etc. The only thing I would have liked to be different since this hack was meant to be challenging and have to go some time w/o a sword and then a long time w/ the Wooden Sword would be to include more bomb upgrades and change some of the item placement such as the Tunics, Bow, Wand and Silver Arrows to different locations. Again, still a solid hack, and I would play it again.
