Hack of The Legend of Zelda


HELLWALKER By MetalMachine

This is a complete “full game” hack of the Legend of Zelda, including:

  • Title/Intro/Outro/Credits
  • Overworld
  • Dungeons (every dungeon even has a unique theme)
  • All graphics
  • All music
  • Many sound effects

Some things to know:

  • The story is not Zelda universe-related at all.
  • This should work on any hardware or emulator that runs vanilla LoZ.
  • This is intended to be difficult. Not crazy hard, but challenging.
  • There are a handful of in-game mechanics new/different from vanilla LoZ.
  • The up+a sequence, saving, retrying, continuing work as normal.
  • Block-clipping and screen-wrapping have been patched out.

This hack is very large and is not intended to be a quick play. It drastically transforms LoZ into what amounts to be a completely new game, using an enhanced version of the LoZ engine.

A Beautiful "Total Conversion"

Reviewed By: PYoshi on 30 Jul 2022

This hack has an incredible amount of effort put into it. All the new graphical assets & music fit well with the game’s theme. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys the original Zelda and wants a challenge.
