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.

Awakening of Death

Reviewed By: ViolentForce on 14 Dec 2019

Some spoilers Ahead:

This hack was great, but did have some of it’s problems. The game makes you start off with a boomerang, and had to go to Level 1 to get your sword, Level 1 & 2 were very nice easy dungeons to get you started in the game but Level 3 & 4 just punched you in the face, Why have bubbles in the 3rd level of the game that do 8x damage with the green tunic? and 4x with the blue ring? these bubbles in this game dont stun disable your sword, they kill you with 1 hit! without up-grades! not a fan of having shooters with darknuts in the 3rd level either, but it is what it is. Not a fan either of having to push blocks into blocks in the dungeons to find secret passways, it got very old after Level 4 and so on. Game was very generous with bombs, money, and bomb up-grades but which meant you’d be bombing alot of the dungeons and overworld (which I did) I went through the whole game just to 100% it, which made it worth it. I found an extra heart container just incase I missed one but I didn’t. Level 9 was a beast to beat, took a good 40 minutes to complete

The graphics in this game are great, and it’s nice to see a complete new overworld and new dungeons designs, I can tell this person put alot of work into it and if you’re up for a Zelda 1 challenge you should play this game. Death is certain in this game, but with the right equipment you should be able to do just fine in this game

7.5/10
