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.

User Review Information

Very tough, but very rewarding

Reviewed By: dewey on 03 Nov 2018

Had to make an account just to review this game in hopes someone sees it.

Wasn’t sure what to expect of the hack but it turned out to be very challenging and fun. It will teach you some new tricks to the game if you dont already know them and there is tonnes of puzzles that kept me thinking for 15+ minutes.

A few minor errors, like finding the sword twice, and the hookshot twice, but maybe that was intended.

Either way, a solid 9/10 for difficulty and 8/10 overall gameplay. Not for beginners and might seem frustrating at times but incredibly rewarding.
