Zelda3 PuzzleDudes Quest

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

Puzzledude started to remodel the original Zelda A Link to the Past game a long time ago. Unlike Goddess of Wisdom this is a modification, but despite that the dungeons are quite different to solve with a lot of new tricks and hidden objects. The star on the floor has many meanings in this game. Sometimes it will change the pits on the floor, but usually it means that something is hidden. In this case, lift or hammer everything. At one point it even serves as a switch for opening the door.

Puzzledude was concentrating to change the gameplay as much as possible, so even a veteran of the game can easily get stuck. The game is also more difficult than the original, but still quite easy at some points. Despite the fact that this is a remodel, it still took a lot of work, specially because of the number of the dungeons. The overworld, however, is less modified, but there are a lot of barriers, that will force you to search for the correct path. A smart player will quickly see, that this is much more than just another vapid master quest.

Great Level of Challenge

Now this is a master hack!

The overworld was modified with added barriers to force players to choose the correct path. Also, some caves that were in the original game have now been removed.

The dungeons are not minor tweaks of existing ones; all of them were heavily modified with tricky puzzles and hidden objects. Some treasure chests even require the use of the Magic Cape or Cane of Byrna to get to.

The Desert Palace dungeon requires some backtracking. After getting the Big Key, the player has to leave the dungeon, go all the way around the desert, then re-enter the dungeon through a different entrance to get to the treasure chest with the Power Gloves.

The star plates on dungeon floors have different meanings in this hack. Usually, the star plates mean there are hidden objects nearby like treasure chests, staircases, large blocks, moles, etc. Sometimes, the star plates will change the locations of the pits on the floor. At one point, the star plate even serves as a switch that opens shuttered doors.

There are two platform mazes in Level-7: Turtle Rock with added barriers to force players to find the correct path. Choosing an incorrect path and running in to a barrier will force that player to restart the puzzle from the beginning.

My only complaint about this hack is that it is hard to find rupees in the overworld if the player is low on rupees.

Overall, this hack is easier than Parallel Worlds, but still harder than the original game. If you’re looking for a good challenge, then this is your hack.
