    Corrected release date. Just checked Wikipedia, although it's not always a reliable source. The game wasn't released to the arcades until October 1986, and both the FDS and NES release dates were in 1988!

Zelda II - Part 2

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link


This hack is a continuation of the original Zelda II. It was created with one goal in mind, and that is to provide a challenge. Fortunately, there are 3 patches available to download: Easy, Medium, and Hard. This way, if you don’t like challenging games, you will have other options to select from.

It will feel like a new game. Most of the overworld has been changed as well as the 7 palaces. There are all new puzzles in every single area of the game and some of them will most likely get you stumped! If you like Zelda II, then you will definitely like this hack.

Not enjoyable

Reviewed By: ViolentForce on 13 Dec 2019

I’ve always been a Zelda II fan, I always found the game very under-rated and under-appreciated, I was & am still pretty good where I can could zero death run the orginal. But this game, this hack… No

I enjoyed the_icepenguins hacks in the past, Loved Shadow of Night & Journey of a Day, but this one, just No. Not gonna say that I just made it to the first town and quit, I went through more than half of the game of barely surviving just to get from place to place, and making it half way across the map to die and had to start up again from the beginning made me call it quits The layout, some dungeons i’ve seen and overworld map are great, but the enemies you fight just kill you in 3 hits or even less if you don’t have experience up-graded was too much. Always having to save magic to regain life, having to use magic to jump up certain ledges to make tedious jumps from ledge to ledge or you’ll fall into a pit and die just made the game not fun at all!

I can see how some people love the challenge, I love a good Zelda II challenge as well, but this hack is just not for me. Maybe if there was an easy version i’d give it another shot, but for now, just not for me.
