    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Zelda II Rev Edition

Hack of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Description:

The Zelda II Rev edition hack changes the graphics for Zelda 2 for the nes. Almost every enemy, boss, item and character in the game have received a minor or major change. The over world sprites & palette have been tweaked a bit as well. A couple lines of dialogue were changed because of the few item changed to something from the first Zelda.

Some notable changes include: Updated Link’s sword, pants, & shield. Zoras now look similar to other Zelda games, Gooma is a minotaur, Bubbles are Zelda 1 style, the Power glove has been replaced with the Power Bracelet, Wise men now look closer to Zelda 1 style, Wizards & Mago’s are also closer to Zelda 1 style. Bots, bits & big bots are more “blobby” looking. Megmats & wosus are closer to the instruction manual art.

All changes have been noted in the Read me file.

UPDATED TO 1.6.00!!!!

  • **Reverted all over world, magic and side view changes from previous build.***

It only contains the sprite, dialogue, and pallet changes that were in 1.5.00 This is a temporary replacement until the palace rock issues in build 1.5.00 are resolved. The palace rock bug in build 1.5.00 happens when you beat the first palace and find the candle. Afterwards palace 1, 2, and 3 turn to stone oddly. When the palace rock issues have been fixed, the original version will be uploaded and this version will be with it for those interested in just visual changes. Do not use any save files associated with the previous build.

A Great Improvement

Reviewed By: Shade Aurion on 03 Jan 2018

After playing a fair ways in, this hack makes the whole game better as a whole and easier to look at and this play. Some things just don’t age very well and in a lot of ways AoL was one of those things but with these graphical improvements, I feel you’ve breathed New Life into it. Nicely done!
