Zelda II: Remove big flasheffect

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link


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 :)

Big improvement

Reviewed By: Znakemaster on 17 Mar 2019

As someone with epilepsy I can say that this hack is a must for anyone planning to play Zelda II. The repetitive color flashes that occur in the original Zelda II upon death is just as rapid as the videos online to fix stuck pixels on monitors. Absolutely not meant for human eyes.

This hack could use some improvement though. Deep contrasted colors such as red and blue are not good for people with epilepsy and I would recommend changing the deep red death screen to an all black death screen screen with a white contrasted link.

If possible, I would remove the blue flash that happens after learning a spell from someone and only have the sound effect.

I highly appreciate the effort you put into this as allot of retro games can be very intense on the eyes.
