This is a hack of the Legend of Zelda (NES) that changes many parts of the game while staying true to the original. It features brand new graphics never seen elsewhere. Some graphics are ripped from existing hacks and further modified. Others are used as-is. There are many UI refinements. The first and second dungeons are completely redone but the other levels remain the same for now. A full list of changes is as follows:

  • Improved sword graphics on title screen
  • Added a subtitle on title screen
  • Made several refinements to the select screens
  • Changed story text
  • Changed various aspects of the “All of Treasures” crawl
  • Changed graphics for link, items, enemies, terrain, etc.
  • Added automap (without hearts mod)
  • Changed font
  • Changed lots of in-game text
  • Sped up in-game text
  • Changed palettes
  • Changed flute song
  • Select button changes “B” item (no longer pauses)
  • Moved level 1 and created a new dungeon

  • Remake level 2
  • Shuffle locations for level 2 and 3
  • Update automap graphics to reflect above
  • Update whistle locations
  • Use a different map cursor between overworld and dungeons


  • Updated Gohma graphics
  • Updated Manhandla graphics
  • Fix pale link palette in level 3
