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

Description:

Here is a hack for Legend of Zelda - Link to the Past, which switches the roles of Link and Zelda whereas Zelda is the playable hero and Link is the one in need of rescue. The dialogue has been altered to suit this change also.

A clever premise!

Reviewed By: TimeSpaceMage on 10 Apr 2016

I really like role-swap hacks, and this is on one of my favorite games. Interesting green/blue palette swap on the enemies, too. There are still some kinks to iron out, though.

  • Sahasrahla and the Bottle Salesman still call Zelda a young man.
  • You still get Link’s telepathic cry for help while he’s with you.
  • Multiple dialogue boxes have graphical glitches from text wrapping around. (Mean ladies in Kakariko, the wise lady in Kakariko, Wanted signs, Saha’s speech entering the dark world “as male members of”)
  • In Agahnim’s first scene, Link is white/purple.

All in all, very fun to play! I can’t wait to see the next version! Maybe you can raise the pitch on the “hurt” sfx so it sounds more feminine?
