This is a fantastic hack of Link to the Past from what I’ve played so far! I don’t know about anyone else, but I just love hard games. I really can’t get enough of extreme challenge in games, and this will certainly give it to you!

I don’t remember exactly where I was when I last played, but I think I beat the second or third dungeon. Bear in mind that I’m playing through without save states, so I can’t just beast through like most people are, if you know what I mean.

One thing I do have to bring up, though, is, why can’t you save your progress until you’ve made it to the ornament in the guard house? I had to wake up from bed so many freaking times! I was wondering if you could even save the game at all, and I was so relieved when I hit a checkpoint at the ornament!

It’s really cool how you have a magic meter like in Majora’s Mask, and the day and night transitions like in Ocarina, and every Zelda game after! Although, it doesn’t seem to change that often. The custom sprites are really good, and overall, it seems a lot of work was put into this hack.

A lot of people say that this hack is way too hard, but I find it to be beatable for the most part. You just have to be patient. When you fail, you just have to try again! Don’t be so quick to give up!

Fantastic hack, man!
