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 2/21/2016: 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).

Update 1/18/2021: The Slingshot was moved from Level-4 to Level-5, the Stepladder was moved from Level-5 to Level-4, an extra Heart Container was removed from Level-5, and a previously inaccessible room in Level-6 was made accessible by changing the 1-way shutter to an open door (this room has an Aquamentus and a key).
