Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Description:

Ages ago, the Ancient Sages built the Temple of Time to protect the Sacred Realm. Ganondorf, the Gerudo King of Thieves, has Obtained the Triforce of Power and become the King of Evil. The power of the sages lies sleeping in six temples across Hyrule. The time has come for you to awaken as the Hero of Time!

This adaptation takes Link to familiar places and a few new ones. It is designed to be more difficult, more forgiving, and less linear than the vanilla game.

My favorite Z2 hack

Reviewed By: DontBaguMe on 13 May 2022

As a fan of both Z2 and OOT, this hack scratched my nostalgia itch big time. It also hit the difficulty sweet spot for me, which is hard to do with a Z2 hack. I felt one of the maps in the Gerudo Training Grounds was a bit unfair and unfun, but that was really my only complaint.

The ingenuity and creativity with the concept, the combat challenges, the sprite changes, and the plethora of OOT Easter eggs made me want to see it improved. Porting over the music from OOT would be epic, for instance, and while custom ASM is hard, the cool factor could be much enhanced with some little custom mechanics here and there.

This inspired me to take more seriously my own hack I’ve been wanting to work on. Good work, looking forward to more from this creator!

[EDIT] The hack has music now! And the unfair room has updated. Life is good B-)
