Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

This hack was originally called –Zelda Shards of Might–. It was made by Omega and SePH, But unfortunately it was bugged. Zelda didn’t appear in the guardhouse. This could be fixed, but the forest dungeon was heavily bugged. The game was unsolvable.

Luckily Francais from France removed those major bugs. He called the hack –Zelda Link to the future Chapter 3–. But the game was still bugged. You get Zelda at the beginning, but when you talk to your uncle, she disappeared. Some entrances were switched, which would result in false game play and all jumps diagonally-down would crash the game.

You can’t rescue Zelda since there is no staircase that leads to the priest, so the rain never stops and the palace guards didn’t disappear. The game was again unsolvable.

Removed all mentioned bugs and have made new gameplay. Two dungeons were extended. There were also crash bugs inside the dungeons. All this was fixed.

Sometimes, the logic of the dungeon was false (some key doors were optional or there would be a key behind the key door). Plus, you really don’t know if you should search for pendants or crystals. All this was fixed.

DO NOT PLAY

Reviewed By: Bigwil1870 on 23 Jun 2019

I hope I can save others time, this game is broken, no matter what version you download. I am not sure if someone went in and purposely messed up all of the versions. First started with 3.1, You get to the first dungeon and cannot proceed due to a missing statue in the very first room. So I read up and found out this version is essentially broken, but 1.2.1 (I believe that was the version) worked fine. So Set it up to play this version… about 3 hours into it, in the third dungeon (Water Dungeon, one in which you get the boomerang) the boss fight is glitched. It is the boss in which you use the hookshot to pull the things off him and kill them one by one, but in this version they turn blue and are invincible. In frustration I looked it up and read in the previous review that 3.0 works fine… which is also not true. This version does the exact same thing as 1.2.1 (so another 2.5 hours wasted) and the boss in the Water Temple is also invincible. The reviewer before me stated there is some bad blood between one of the creators and moderators on this site… sad situation, even more sad because this game was really fun, and I was enjoying it, only to be left completely let down and frustrated. Save yourself the time, Try Parallel Worlds or just go play some Link to the Past randomizer… DO NOT PLAY!

Version 3.0 Recommended - No
