Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link


A land once fruitful now rots. Palaces rich in beauty now left encased in stone. All that remains of a the worlds beauty is a fleeting memory. An evil spirit can be more malicious than a living form.

The resurrection of Ganon is your only hope. Restore the barrier. Trap the evil King within.

A celebration of everything that made the original great

Reviewed By: lilo-san on 17 Aug 2021

A celebration of everything that made the original great with new spins. Feels like a true continuation that can be easily recommended to all lovers of the original.

# Difficulty:

+ Higher than the original, without ever feeling unfair. Added platforming sections don’t contain unfair death pits.

+ No excessive game overs, most of them at the beginning of the game before firsts level ups.

+ No guides required. “If you have very good knowledge of the original” ^_^U

# Graphics and design choices:

+ Overall graphics and design choices for the overworld, towns and palaces are quite remarkable.

+ Special attention has been put on the palaces. Each one has quite distinctive graphics and atmosphere.

+ The desolation on the land can be felt though the color palette, graphics and the design of the places, it is cohesive.

- Non-telegraphed overworld places are a bad design choice 99 out of 100 times. Having places telegraphed or not should be player choice, specially towns, palaces and main items. “A patch for this would be welcome by many, even if optional.”

- Few bosses. Sadly most palaces finish without a high note leaving the player without a strong fulfilment.

# Music:

+ Themes quality range from good to great.

+ The overworld theme.

- The main palace theme gets repetitive even on a short playthough.

# Gameplay Balance:

+ Grinding is never needed to level up.

+ Experience is saved across continues.

- Continuing after a game over and need to walk all the way to a palace. “A patch for this would be welcome by many, even if optional.”
