Hearts drop randomly from enemies everywhere and sometimes even fairies. The game is fairly generous with that. Just delete the rom from your hard drive.
Quote from: Thirteen 1355 on March 05, 2022, 04:46:48 AMHmm, maybe you're correct about the first, but the second? I don't know, I've played every Zelda game other than the first and I've never had issues with this in the other games. I already deleted the rom because this game's still just as bad as it's always been. Please let's not make it too much about me, though. That's way too off-topic. I do hugely appreciate the effort that went into this hack. It just doesn't fix the biggest and most impactful thing that made the game hard to play.
Quote from: Midnight Metronome on March 05, 2022, 02:09:06 PMNotice how nobody has a problem with it but you? Good that you deleted the rom now delete your worthless review.
Quote from: The3Dude on March 05, 2022, 04:40:23 PMI personally feel that if starting with 3 hearts after dying in a dungeon is too much to handle, maybe you aren't cut out for the game. The target audience for the first Zelda 1 was people looking for a treacherous adventure, no linearity, no handholding, e.g the opposite of Mario bros. Yes, the original game was slightly cryptic, but the old people you find in-game always give you enough hints to push forward. Now that I recall, Miyamoto himself actually meant for Zelda 1 to be the opposite of Super Mario Bros! In Super Mario Bros, you already know what to do. There is only one goal, that goal is to move the screen forward and beat the level. In Zelda 1 the "Levels" are long mazes with dead ends, hints, and difficult enemies. If you are looking for a lightweight, "casual" easy mode game, a game that gives you full health after death, no challenge, then Zelda 1 is not the game for you. So please, spare ShadowOne333 the bad reviews. He's been working tirelessly on this hack since 2019, and still, people say he hasn't done enough. I myself have made 3 full Zelda 1 hacks that change the entire game, and I can confidently and humbly say that ShadowOne333 is the more experienced hacker when it comes to the code aspects. I truly admire his work, and I feel that constructive criticism should've been used in this forum, rather than a near-permanent scar of a bad review placed on his work. Please reconsider.

Quote from: MattKimura on March 06, 2022, 03:38:49 AMThis hack is more for people who are familiar with Zelda 1 and would like a polished version with some quality of life features. It was never meant to change the difficulty and make the game easy for newcomers or to make it more in line with the later games in the series in terms of difficulty. If this were a difficulty hack, it would lessen damage from enemies and make every enemy drop hearts.
Quote from: MattKimura on March 06, 2022, 03:38:49 AMExpecting this hack to create an easier difficulty is out of the scope of this hack and is an error on the users part.

""This made me realise this hack just doesn't do enough to make this game accessible to people who can play every other Zelda in the series, but can't get through this.""I didn't like the original for its obtuse outdated stuff"Honestly to me, it sounds fair and not harsh or over-reaction. More of a .. don't waste my time with something I don't care about (life grinding).March 05, 2022, 09:56:10 PM - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)Actually, it's buggy- Save and quit. Load another game = refills all hearts.- Save and quit. Exit game. Reload game. 2 hearts.But if you die and "Save and continue", you're fine. Or "retry".So patch needs work.
Quote from: Special on March 07, 2022, 05:42:23 PMUnfortunately there's now too many optional patches, so much added complexity for people who just want to play Zelda! I'll need to write my own negative review.
