Too Hard for Me But Not Un-Fun

Reviewed By: avrysatos on 04 May 2019

This is the most popular Zelda 3 romhack out there for a reason. It is a very well constructed and fun romhack, even if I had to rely on save states to play it, and find a map for the one dungeon that is terribly designed. (You’ll know it when you see it.) The newest versions fixed a few issues that previous reviews you might have seen had with this game such as not being able to get both boomerangs and lets you punch when you have no sword, making the beginning something even I could do if I am careful. The inclusion of the secret codes is nice.

Once you get to the parallel world the game seems rather directionless so it’s easy to end up somewhere without the items you need to finish it, I had to leave a few places and come back to them.

I sort of wish the remodel worked, because it’s supposed to be easier, but it’s totally broken.
