A Link to the Shadows: Cool NES-Style Fan Game!

It seems like people have been having fun with some of the random Zelda fangames I’ve been checking out lately, so I figured I’d keep on showing them, as I have a lot of fun with them too!

Today, I’ve got another nifty NES-inspired quest to show you called Zelda: A Link to the Shadows. This quest actually dates back to 2009 and was designed by a user named BloodStar, and though it bears a strong resemblance to the NES classic, it actually also draws in elements from the 16-bit era. Some people on Pure ZC have said that this game should be the mark to which all NES-styled quests should be compared, and maybe that’s true. I won’t make such a bold generalization here, but I will say that I was very impressed with the first hour of gameplay. The music was well chosen, the graphics were nice, the overworld was well done for the most part, and the dungeons required a fair amount of exploration while not being too annoying. Also, I liked the “Bonus” areas at the end of each dungeon that give you a chance to earn some extra rupees to spend later on. 🙂

Enjoy, and stay tuned – more fun is on the way!
