Fun hack that isn't too brutal.

Reviewed By: reMACKARio on 01 Dec 2020

I’ve tried a few hacks of Zelda II that have been near impossible to complete, so this version was a welcome addition. To be clear it is more challenging than the original game but is still fun to play. I really liked the atheistic and winter theme throughout the overworld. The initial start in the maze is probably the one downside as you face some tough enemies right off the bat. However the leveling up is fair and you can easily up your magic/defense/attack a few levels before entering the caves.

I found the palaces to be well designed. Make sure to take heed of hints from townfolk as there are a few tricky puzzles that would be confusing without them. Most of the required spells and items were reasonable to find using hints throughout the town. There was one that I couldn’t figure out later in the game that required downthrusting an invisible block in a town to fall into a basement.

Overall this was a a really fun hack for anyone whose looking to breath some new life into Zelda II.
