Legend of Zelda is an iconic game created by Nintendo. This hack-and-slash adventure game captivated our hearts because of its compelling storyline and its dynamic gameplay. In fact, Legend of Zelda is quite popular that even Robin William’s daughter was named Zelda Williams.
In Legend of Zelda, you can control the character, Link. He is like an Elvish character of some sorts. He wields a sword and a shield, kind of like a knight in shining armor, minus the shimmering armor of course.
His sword is no ordinary sword by any means. He wields the famous Master Sword, a pivotal weapon that has a lot of story elements built into it. The Master Sword, also known as the Hyrule sword, is the weapon Link uses to defeat the evil Ganon.
After receiving this grave news, he walks out of his room to find his uncle, wielding a sword and shield. His uncle tells Link to stay in the house and never leave it, while he does some errands (with a sword and shield? Hmm,something’s not right here).
Apparently, Link’s uncle also knows that Princess Zelda is being held captive in the castle. So, he goes to the castle to save her. Link did not listen to his uncle and then, he went to the castle to save Princess Zelda. On his way to the castle, he finds his uncle badly injured. He entrusts Link with the sword and shield, and then the story of “A Link to the Past” started from there.
Aside from the compelling storyline, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is also very entertaining and very challenging to play. There are a lot of things you can do in the game. Dungeons are very commonplace, and each dungeon has puzzles that you need to solve in order to continue.
Some people are very fond of these puzzles, but some, of course, scratch their heads. That is because some puzzles are just so difficult for people who don’t want that kind of challenge. Luckily for them, nowadays, there are a lot of guides that can be found online, which can help them streamline the process and help them go on with their quest.
Aside from dungeons, there are a lot of items you can collect that will help Link with his journey. Also, instead of a typical side-scrolling game that is very popular in the 90s, A link to the Past uses the top-down approach, which is quite a unique spin from the norm.
Lastly, A link to the Past introduces Parallel worlds. You can choose between the light and dark worlds, each having their own set of dungeons and weapons you can acquire.
All in all, Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past is one very enjoyable game.
