A real gamechanger!

I signed up just to review this fantastic patch! I never had a NES as a kid so without any nostalgia for it I always thought the first Zelda looked really rough. This hack reworks every aspect of the graphics and makes the game look amazing. There is just so much more detail to everything. Link now actually looks like the Link I remember!

Combined with a full relocalisation makes it the definitive version of the game in my eyes. Anyway, just thought I would write a review, since no one had reviewed this version of the patch, yet. Love your work! So glad you put a lot of love into this hack. It really shows!
