The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Deception

Hack of The Legend of Zelda

Description:

The Legend of Zelda: Ganon’s Deception is a very hard hack that starts you having to dodge strong enemies to find a sword. The overworld, dungeons, and graphics have all been changed. Be prepared to encounter enemies that are normally not seen in the overworld.

Unfortunately, this hack was still in beta form when it was first released. Many dungeons were incomplete and inaccessible. All that has been fixed, so the player can beat both quests freely. A Word document listing all the changes made is included with the patch.

UPDATE 21/02/2016: Unfortunately, I unearthed two bugs in Level-8 in the first quest; the first one is in a room that leads to a bomb capacity upgrade. The shuttered door stays closed forever even after having defeated the blue darknuts. A second bug in the same room involves a false wall that you can walk through which leads back to the room with the Old Man’s clue “There’s a Secret in the Room with the Arrow.” Unfortunately, if you were to walk through that false wall, you can land in a restricted area above the NPC’s in the Old Man’s room similar to those found in overworld caves. If you were to walk through this restricted area, you can lose at least one heart worth of damage. Both of these bugs have been fixed. I also removed an extra bomb capacity upgrade in Level-7 in the first quest (there were two of them in that dungeon).

Great hack, challenging

Reviewed By: xeades on 03 Dec 2020

So far I am really enjoying this game and I’ve only noticed a few bugs. Starts off very challenging and gets a bit easier but overall very happy with this play. I just played outlands Q1 last week and I also enjoyed that a lot but honestly I am enjoying this one as much if not more. I did find what appears to be an inaccessible cave though. I tried looking for a guide to verify but it seems nobody has created one. Hopefully people are playing it though because this is truly a good hack.

Since nobody has created a guide for it I am working on one now. I finally found all the dungeons but still looking for the book. There seems to be an unreachable room in dungeon 6 but I’m going to double check it. I compiled a list of bugs as well, which I can provide but it didn’t look like I could send darklink a message on here. I will update review with guide url once it’s finished since that will also note the bugs.
