Zelda Classic is a 2D Legend of Zelda game engine, famous for its quest editor that allows users to create their own Zelda games.
Zelda Classic is a freeware PC remake of the original platform game Legend of Zelda released for the NES way back in 1986. This near perfect clone has all of the levels, enemies and power ups available in the original platformer.
Zelda Classic is a highly functional and well-supported customizable remake of The Legend of Zelda for the NES. While it began as a simple clone of the original game, it extended far beyond that to become a comprehensive editing suite, allowing anybody to create their own Zelda style games, with unprecedented levels of customizability, all without having to rely on complex scripts. Programmed by Dark Nation, DarkDragon, Takuya, and Koopa, and many others, we're constantly improving the capabilities of the engine every day, ultimately aiming for Zelda Classic to become the de facto standard of all Zelda-themed fan games.
Zelda Classic began as a clone of the original The Legend of Zelda for Microsoft Windows. Originally released in 1999, many versions with improvements were released as its popularity grew. Eventually, the quest editor, ZQuest, was released and the platform gained a a sizable community of thousands of Zelda gamers and amateur game designers. Zelda Classic allows the development of new quests, that can use either the traditional 8-bit graphics or enhanced graphics, in 16-Bit style, as well as new enemies, items, and challenges.
Though it was started as a basic Legend of Zelda clone by programmer Phantom Menace in April of 1999, Zelda Classic has grown into something much bigger in the past few years. A full LOZ replica was achieved by June of 2000, with Zelda Classic version 1.84, but the story didnt end there. Although Phantom Menace moved on to other projects, Fans of Zelda Classic wanted more.
The Zelda Adventure is definitely one of the coolest Minecraft mod projects around.
It’s called Zelda Adventure and manages to squeeze the franchise’s most iconic elements — including a boomerang, a magical ocarina and an old man with a beard — into millions of polygonal blocks and boxes. It has a unique map with full dungeons modeled after dungeons from the Super NES game A Link to the Past and from the Nintendo 64 Zelda game Ocarina of Time.
Zelda Adventure for Minecraft features a more structured gameplay than regular Minecraft. You have to move through the game collecting items, build up your character's inventory, fight enemies and solve puzzles, rather than just building your own world like in regular Minecraft. You also get to go hands on with Link’s arsenal of items and weapons. You’ll get to grab distant rupees with a boomerang, warp around the world by tooting on your ocarina, blow up creepers with pixel-art bombs and defend yourself with a Kokiri shield.
Zelda Adventure combines elements from across the Legend of Zelda games including characters, weapons, quests, and more. Watch the trailer above to see it in action.
Link has been captured by the Great Fairies which have been turned evil by Gannondorf, your only hope is to find the one remaining pure Great Fairy that managed to escape Gannondorfs evil spell, she should be able to help you free Link but the problem is that you do not know which one is the pure one!
Get to the Great Fairy at the end of every level to find out if she is pure or not but without loosing all your health (the hearts at the top of the screen). Remember to avoid Gannondorfs minions, even the Zoras have been turned evil but luckily the Gorons escaped so they are still your freinds.
The music and graphics in Zeldas story are excellent. There are five levels (rooms) in this game. The game play is not to hard and not to easy. Enjoy the music as you play and remember that this is not an arcade game, so go slow and easy on the arrow keys. It is a fairly short game, so there is no load or save in the game. Once in a great while you might get stuck in a wall and have to hit F2 to restart the current room. The only drawback to Zeldas Story is the file size of 34 MB, but if you have a high speed connection then you know that this is no problem.
