Zelda II: The Nightmare of Ganon

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Description:

The Nightmare of Ganon is a complete redesign of the NES game Zelda II with new story, overworld, caves, palaces, towns, item order, random encounters, and more.

It’s a hardtype and more challenging then the original game. Enemies don’t take more hits then usual, the difficulty lies more in the design.

It’s much longer because of a bigger overworld which has more caves and bridges. There are longer caves and deeper palaces.

There are a couple custom changes to gameplay which include enemies that respawn & you can restart at the palace if you game over.

This romhack will give a feeling like it’s a totally new Zelda II game because none of the design is similar to the original.

Wonderful Hack

Reviewed By: westsibes on 07 Jan 2021

I really enjoyed this. Bravo to the creator! The difficulty was pretty extreme (I made heavy use of the save state feature in my emulator). As a kid I really enjoyed the original Zelda 2 on the NES and lamented that Nintendo never made a sequel with a similar feel (they obviously went a different direction). I stumbled upon this recently and I’m amazed at the level of detail. A lot of twists and challenges, lots of death defying jumps from platform to platform, caves that almost felt like mini levels at times, creative use of pitfalls, and much more. This hack has far more depth than the original. If you enjoyed the original, and are able to beat it without too much difficulty, then you will thoroughly enjoy this hack.
