    HISTORY
    I started making this years ago. It's literally so close to being done that all I have to do is the final boss, ending sequence, and credits. However, at one point, the game kept giving me an unexpected error upon every attempt of a test. Soon after, my laptop crashed, and I had all but forgotten that I had a backup on one of the online file-sharing sites. So because of that incident, I had to stop working on it through the lack of a computer. Then, as a reminder that it was one of my attempted projects, I posted it in my list of scrapped games and engines. I found it yesterday on one of the file-sharing sites I use as a back-up and found out that this one doesn't give the unexpected error. So, still so close to the goal, I decided I'll finish this up to add to my list of completed games .

    INFO
    About the Whole Game...
    This game is an enhanced remake of what was once an online arcade game called "Ode to Zelda." It featured a small world that used edited "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" sprites. Believe it or not, you could probably clear the whole game in under 2 hours.

    About Heart Containers...
    You can obtain a total of 16 heart containers, all of which are acquired in a certain order. Feel like you missed some? Kill all the enemies on the screen for any heart container availible there to appear.

    About Magic Containers...
    These, unlike Heart Containers, aren't required to be obtained in order, however, they are hidden in various places. Blast all rocks and pound all stakes to find them all!

    About Sword Upgrades...
    The first upgrade of the sword (Iron Sword) is hidden in a cave. The last upgrade of the sword (Master Sword) is hidden on the overworld.

    About the Controls...
    Here is a list of the in-game controls:
    Z: Use Sword.
    X: Use selected item.
    Enter: Open Inventory/Pause the game.
    Ctrl: Take a screenshot (These seem to be in PNG format, but are actually in BMP format, so before uploading them somewhere, save them as a proper PNG image file).

    SCREENSHOTS
    VERSION B


    VERSION A


    VIDEOS


    ORIGINAL (NOT MINE)


    DOWNLOAD
    Old to Zelda GB Download

    SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
    Windows XP or later.
    256 MB of RAM.

    For 'An unexpected error occured while running the game.' recipients...
    Check THIS and THIS on that situation. I already unchecked all Preload boxes, and this game doesn't use MP3's.


    YOUR PART
    Since the game is near completion, I would like to hear any suggestions, ideas for Ganon, and feedback. Enjoy the game !

    Oh, wow, this is really neat! It's a shame that non-Pokemon games get so little attention on this forum. I'm gonna download it now and tell you my thoughts. From the videos, it looks really well-crafted, so kudos to you!

    EDIT: Downloaded and played. It seems to work fairly well, although it would help to have some more explanation of the controls in-game. (yes, I know they're simple, but the name menu in particular is unclear.) I encountered a large problem with the sound, though. Keep in mind my computer's been having issues with sound before this, but in this case I think it's the game that's at fault. Every time a sound effect played-- such as swinging my sword-- the game would lag and the BGM would restart. It made it hard to keep playing. Can you fix this?

      Now that isn't supposed to happen, and I've NEVER had that problem, so I don't even know what to fix. It might be your sound card, because you're the only one so far who has had that problem with this o.o.

      I've moved the thread into the Showcase because it obviously has enough progress.

      On the game itself, I only played a couple of minutes and I agree that there should be some sort of in-game explanation of the controls, because the ones that are used don't come naturally to some.

        Wow! This game is really great! Also, thanks for posting those scrapped games and engines. I really needed a Zelda engine.

          Damn, a game that looks half interesting, and I can't even play it. May try on another laptop later. Did you make the original or is this a fangame of a fangame?

            It's a fan-game of a fan-game, since you put it that way xD. Well, I need to finish up Link's new sprites, then move on. I was considering, since this version is near completion although it doesn't work for many, slapping Ganon in there with an ending sequence, then releasing that. And later on, release the second version, which will be WAY better with a heckload more content. Sounds like a plan, or should I just wait until I finish (or post updates of) Version B?

                This makes me think back to "Zelda and the Oracle of.."
                Good memories. I see that the tileset is similar, did you use them form that game line?
                I'm really looking forward to this. Might edit this with ideas for Ganon.
