A Great Short Story To Enjoy

Reviewed By: SwiftlyTony360 on 23 Mar 2023


Now that I’ve completed Secrets of the Past beginning to end, I can now add my input. This small hack was a fun concept, and I’m glad to have played it all the way through. Along the way, I have noticed a number of issues that need to be worked on, as well as areas that could be improved upon. I will address them below:

Game-play Review

Each dungeon received a significant increased in difficulty as you progress, which lines up according to the Zelda format. There is only one world map, which is significantly smaller than the original one. You are limited to where you can explore because there are restrictions in place upon the areas. Unlike in the original game, where you are free to explore, you are actually required to complete the dungeon or at least get the equipment so that you can unlock more areas. The layout of the dungeons was very creative and challenging, it was very enjoyable.

With no guide, you will not be able to know for certain if you have gotten every item in the game. The main items are placed in dungeons, while the other items are hidden throughout the game. Once I had completed the game, I was unable to be sure if I had missed something. This hack was intended to be small, but I was craving more as I was making progress with the story because of how well executed the game was.

Writing Review

I am impressed by the narrative being told here. It was interesting and creative to see a change in narrative. Additionally, it appears to me that there might be a sequel to this story once you get the Triforce, as it mentions other antagonists. It is possible that this is the only story, or that the mentioned antagonists may be the next main villain. Only time will tell.


– Adding a Read-Me Log of where items are and a Change Log of what was changed in the original game to make things clearer.

– Adding the Pegasus Boots ASM hack to improve fluidity in the game.

– Adding the L and R Equipment Select Buttons for additional functionality.

– Adding a recolor link to distinguish him from the original game.


After reviewing this story, I actually found it enjoyable to a degree. I believe this hack as a lot of room for improvement. This hack is suitable for anyone who is interested in a challenge and should try out this game. I will give this hack a recommendation because I can see myself replaying this game. Hopefully, there will be further revisions in the future.
