Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

This hack was originally called –Zelda Shards of Might–. It was made by Omega and SePH, But unfortunately it was bugged. Zelda didn’t appear in the guardhouse. This could be fixed, but the forest dungeon was heavily bugged. The game was unsolvable.

Luckily Francais from France removed those major bugs. He called the hack –Zelda Link to the future Chapter 3–. But the game was still bugged. You get Zelda at the beginning, but when you talk to your uncle, she disappeared. Some entrances were switched, which would result in false game play and all jumps diagonally-down would crash the game.

You can’t rescue Zelda since there is no staircase that leads to the priest, so the rain never stops and the palace guards didn’t disappear. The game was again unsolvable.

Removed all mentioned bugs and have made new gameplay. Two dungeons were extended. There were also crash bugs inside the dungeons. All this was fixed.

Sometimes, the logic of the dungeon was false (some key doors were optional or there would be a key behind the key door). Plus, you really don’t know if you should search for pendants or crystals. All this was fixed.

User Review Information

YES DO PLAY

Reviewed By: lyapko on 07 Jul 2019

I hope I can make others’ time better, this game is not broken, no matter which version you use. The idea that someone purposely messed up all of the version is fake news/reviews. If you first start with 3.1, you do not need a statue, since the button is hidden under a trick chair and is a one press and the chair is lifted as a jar, which apparently no one figuered out. So this version is essentially not broken. It appears they also missed a forum-topic with numerous guide-screens on the subject.

In the first dungeon (Water Dungeon, one in which you get the boomerang) the boss fight is not glitched. It is the boss in which you hookshot to pull the things off him and kill them one by one and in this version they are not invincible, you just need to use a spin attack or icerod. The spin attack should be obvious, unless you are a flat-earther. Plus the fight is not mandatory to beat the game.

Fun situation, even more fun because this game was really great, and I was enjoying it, only to be completely let down and smeared by some flat-earther fake reviews. Do not play Parallel Worlds (you’ll die - a lot) nor the useless randomizers. But this thing, YES DO PLAY (but not for flat-earthers).

Version 3.1 Recommended - Yes
