Break out the Graph Paper, an infinite series of new quests awaits you!
This is a Windows program that takes in an original Legend of Zelda rom and procedurally generates a new overworld map from scratch.
A fully randomized map, including new map layouts, screen layouts, dungeon locations, and environments.
Seed-based generation - The same seed will always produce the same map
Randomized Map Layouts - Every map is laid out differently
Randomized Screen Layouts - Each environment has its own rules for procedural generation, creating a new experience every time
Three new environments - A more convincing Desert, a snaking River, and a Haunted Forest
Randomized Ladder-Item Location - It can show up on any screen with Coasts or Lakes
Smartly Placed secret bushes and bombable walls
Randomized Start Screen - Will always appear along the border of the map, making it easier to chart the world
Randomized Locations of Dungeons, Caves, Armos Stairs, and Power Bracelet
New Enemy Placement
Option to change the overworld’s color palette
Compatible with Fred Coughlin’s randomizer (as long as you run that randomizer before this one)
A great tool for a fresh experienceReviewed By: St. Juttemis on 03 Dec 2020
As I fan of the randomizer seeing this instantly made me happy. It works flawless so far with both randomized versions and the “vanilla” version. The only point I found is that the top right overworld map segment still makes the “secret” SFX even if it is not a secret location. The tool is nice and simple, with a clean user interface making it ideal for people who have never played around with the randomizer before.
Where randomized games felt like a new challenge, this makes it feel like a whole new experience! There is still an incredible amount of room for improvements/features too which only makes the future look ever brighter! I can name plenty but I prefer not to spoil certain things, please try it our yourself!
