Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

Zelda’s wish has had a different outcome than expected, leading to a world not so different from her original…

This hack was made to provide a new adventure in Hyrule. As such, much of the world will have a similar feel to the original while providing new challenges, a different route, and possibly a new trick.

This hack has moderate modifications to the overworld, offering a new look to familiar spaces. Some text has been modified to match this different world. All dungeons were modified, leading to new routes, different big chest items, new puzzles, and increased difficulty. Reflecting the increased difficulty, all that remains of your uncle is a pile of clothes and his sword. Bomb jumping is not required. Save states are not required to complete this journey. Good knowledge of the base game will be helpful.

Summary

  • Moderate overworld modification
  • Minor changes to monologue
  • Modified dungeons (all)
  • Increased difficulty

Pretty Balanced Hack

Reviewed By: Blazing on 08 Feb 2021

First off, big shoutout to SkierLink for making the hack and getting the update out ASAP after the unfortunate softlock that was found.

This is possibly the most balanced hack I’ve played for LTTP. Since the overworlds are kept mostly vanilla, it respects the players knowledge of the vanilla game, but just has that extra difficulty and tricks. Some of the tricks I was not aware of and took a while to figure out. Definitely no glitches required.

Can’t wait for more hacks from this guy.
