Legend of Zelda: Awakening of Onyx

Hack of The Legend of Zelda

Description:

After many years, the evil General Onyx has returned. He has invaded the Kingdom of Hyrule to get revenge on Link. He kidnapped Zelda, as well as the Triforce of Power. With the power of the Triforce, Onyx placed a magic barrier in his underground dungeon, to prevent Link from getting close enough to rescue Zelda. Link went to Impa for wisdom. She informs Link that the only way to break the barrier is to seek out and find eight magical “Spirit Skulls”. The Spirit Skulls are said to possess small traces of power similar of that found in the Triforce. With all of the Spirit Skulls used together, the power should be enough to break the barrier, allowing Link to brave the fierce dungeon, and rescue Princess Zelda from the General of Darkness, Onyx

Originally a project worked on partially by Trifindo, this was picked up on, revised, and fully completed to where the game is now fully playable. Only the 1st quest has been done on this game.

bugged

Reviewed By: pleasejust on 09 Nov 2019

At first it seems like this is a great hack but you quickly realize it’s bugged out.

First the RHDN page shows the wrong CRC32. It won’t patch on Zelda PRG0. It WILL patch with PRG1.

Second, you can walk through the walls in the underground parts in dungeons. HOw tf is that still not fixed is beyond me.

Level 2 is messed up. The bomb pickup that appears when you kill all enemies in the room before the dodongos is unreachable. The dodongo room can’t be exited once entered. If you don’t have enough bombs you’re screwed, you have to die and go outside and get bombs somewhere. Annoying. Why should anyone waste their time with a bugged romhack.
