Zelda II Easy

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Description:

This hack adjusts the difficulty of Zelda II to make it more playable. As we all know, this game is very difficult to complete, to the point where it is frustrating to play through it and is not even fun due to the high difficulty. That is where this hack comes into play.

Some of the things it does is increases the damage you do to enemies, reduces the damage you take from enemies, reduces the amount of magic your spells consume, and increases the number of lives you start with.

Special thanks goes to the Romhacking.net community for helping me get started. Special thanks also goes to snarfblam for hosting these files for me to get them submitted to the site. Without their contributions, this hack would not have been possible.

Great Idea

Reviewed By: TRIFORCE89 on 14 Apr 2013

I enjoyed this. I don’t know if “easy” is the proper term here; maybe “fair”. Overall, the difficulty feels closer to Zelda 1. Which means it still isn’t a breeze, but that’s welcome.

Only complaints:

1) Bosses seem too easy.

2) I had to rely on savestates extensively to complete this because if I died I was greeted by just a plain black screen. No save option or continues. No Ganon screen.
