    Wicked old version, 2.1 is the latest release but this is newer than that one. I reckon 2.x Git conveys it's a 2. something, rather than a 1.0 if unknown.

The Legend of Zelda - DX

Hack of The Legend of Zelda

Description:

This hack improves all of the graphics in the entire game and also adds some asm work to this great original title. This hack utilizes not only some of the sprites from Infidelity’s “Zelda - Legend of Link” hack but also Snarfblam’s Automap Plus. This adds a map to the overworld that is revealed as the player explores. Also the heart meter is drawn in 1/8 heart increments, and potions and fairies refill life faster.

SO Much Better!

Reviewed By: Animation Guru on 14 Apr 2016

Overall, graphically superior to the original game. This is the version of the game to play. Period.

One caveat, however, is that the game is made for the original derped 1986 localization. It would be nice if I could either apply this to the 2003 Gamecube version or KillerBob’s Relocalization patch.
