Cute Zelda

Hack of The Legend of Zelda


This is a graphics hack of The Legend of Zelda for the NES. The graphical additions are borrowed largely from “Link’s Awakening”, but in some cases, are improvised following the tradition of modern (post 1990) Nintendo graphic art. A slight amount of text has been varied, and there have been no dungeon or overworld changes to date.

A Good, Simple Graphics Hack

Reviewed By: PowerPanda on 20 Oct 2019

I took a look at 3 graphics hacks for the original Legend of Zelda:

Cute Zelda (this one)

Modern Classic

DX Relocalized Version

Of the 3, this was easily the best one. The main thing this hack had going for it that the others didn’t? It didn’t go too far. In fact, the main problem is that it didn’t go far enough in some cases. The changes to Link look better than other graphics hacks, and the enemies look and feel great. Some enemies are untouched though, like the Keese, and some graphics, like the dungeons, are unedited. I would love to see this hack go one step further and finish off some more edits.

As it stands though, in my opinion this is the best LoZ graphics hack on
