Zelda II: Remove big flasheffect

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Description:

Tested with the “Zelda II - The Adventure of Link (U)”

What does it do?

  • Simple hack that removes the flash effect when

Link dies

  • when learning a spell from the wizard
  • and defeating a boss.

Instead, mentioned screen will use a single color (see screenshots).

Why use this hack?

It’s not as epilepsy-inducing anymore and better for the eyes :)

Should've Started With This

Reviewed By: WireByte on 24 Jul 2012

My friend had epileptic seizures and I wasn’t allowed to play games with him that contained flashy content. When NES first released this in 1987, nobody second thought the damage that game did. Now this epilepsy-free game is less worrisome. And I hope video game designers would quit adding flashing screens.
