CHANGELOG 1.1 & 1.2-

CHANGELOG 1.3

More Improvements!

Added a missing map to the Lv9’s of Quest 1 to all version modes. (Thanks to erpster2 for the heads up!)

In Master mode, the death theme is different now. Touched up the manual, it now gives better hints! Edited Master mode to make it slightly harder. Edited Newbie mode to make it slightly easier.

CHANGELOG 1.4

Added a compass to Lv5 in all Quest 2s from all versions. Made compass reachable in Lv7 of all versions Quest 2. (Thanks to erpster2!)

Increased the overworld’s breathing room in the casual and newbie patches, it is now easier to explore. (Thanks to ifightdragons’ updated review.)

CHANGELOG 1.5

Massive overworld improvements! In Newbie, Casual, and Veteran mode overworld has been made smoother.

Added a missing key to the Lv2s of Quest 1 on all versions.

Added a color palette to the zip. PLEASE USE WHEN PLAYING.

CHANGELOG V1.6

Many fixes and touchups! More enemy variety in areas. Changed Pols voice’s colors to the red palette. Fixed text glitches. Fixed a wrong tile combo placement in the NE part of the world. Fixed all Q2 Dungeon bugs that “erpster2″ brought to my attention. Thanks again! Fixed Link’s hair shrinking when he walks. Colored in the bubble enemies nose so it’s not transparent. Got rid of pushable blocks that don’t trigger anything.

NOTE- The included manual has hints for item locations, dungeon locations, and heart container locations. It even includes new info on new features!

I don't get the point

Reviewed By: marchegiano on 26 May 2019

Maybe it’s something common in Zelda hacks, I don’t know, but what is the GD point of having me wander around the map without a weapon? There’s nothing fun about that. I got so bored in fact I put on turbo and just ran through the baddies.

If you’re not going to start me with a weapon at least put it somewhere where I’ll find it within a few minutes of play. This is boring af.

I’m not going to judge most of the hack because I’m not going to play it. It’s a shame because I like the level designs, each screen I saw was pretty cool. The bad guys were hard enough to put some pressure on you to move your butt without being so hard that it’s taxing going through the maps. Link looks pretty dang good as does everything else. It should be a really great hack and if folks are normally into running around and not fighting I guess it is.

I made it to the snowy area, still no weapon, turbo’d through quite a bit of it, and stopped. I really appreciate the work put in but I don’t play Zelda to dodge and run away. I kill everything. No killing = no fun = ruined your own hack as far as I am concerned.
