Overview

The Adventure of FPS

Have you ever wanted to play Zelda II: The Adventure of Link in 3D? I certainly have. And while this may not be exactly what I had in mind, Michael A. Johnston has just released a fan game based on the first area and temple of that Nintendo classic.

At every turn, it is clear that this is an attempt to recreate The Adventure of Link down to the last pixel, and he has succeeded tremendously at it.

Bits on the Overworld

The game plays in the style of a first-person shooter with Link being able to attack only at a very short range unless he has a full life meter and then he can send out the classic sword “zaps.”

The game has taken many liberties with the structure of the original, arranging it into something that can be played as its own complete game. Locations of items have been moved around and merchants have set up shop in caves like in the first Legend of Zelda.

But what remains intact is every detail about the overworld and the 8-bit graphics moved into 3D. Even when the overworld enemies bump into you and pull you into the enemies stage, there is something truly beautiful about the rolling 8-bit styled hills.

Bits on the rolling plains

If you are a fan of first-person shooters, or simply want to visit The Adventure of Link’s Hyrule in 3D, you can play the game on his site.

    can ya see the enemies in the dark? thats what always kills me.

  • SweetLie

    This was incredibly fun. Just seeing the whole thing recreated in 3D but still reminiscent of the original was fantastic. Although, I would have liked to see the villages recreated.

  • Vic George

    Is there a link we can go to so we can see it for ourselves?

    • EDracon

      you're apparently blind and couldn't see the link. So here you go. http://3dnes.blogspot.com/

      • Chainoftermina

        or it was an honest mistake and he simply didn't see it. chill out.

      • EDracon

        I was joking. :P

        I missed it at first too.

  • GenoKID

    …Wow, cool. I'd rather see ALttP but, still… wow.

    …wow.

    it was out of this world everything reminds me of the game for 8-bit NES; the controls are a little difficult at 1st but still a good game none the less. Now if they were to do the same with the Legend of Zelda 1, A Link to the past, & so on it will blow zelda fans minds beyond all recognition

  • Thareous33

    Whoa… It would have been nice if they made it like this when the made the Zelda Special Edition and stuck it on there. It's also a freaking shame I had to sell the game. :-( I would have very much liked to complete it.

  • naterextor

    I teabagged the princess!

    Also awesome game.

  • glastonbury

    The funny thing is that Miyamoto always pictured Zelda as a 3D game, and AoL was his first trying to that direction.

    My god, the forest is beautiful

  • Matt17

    omg I always wanted a 3D remake of this game. I've been thinking that someone should make a remake one time

  • Toon Link-765

    awesome, In 3D its too awesome,the real version is bad. xD

  • Hydra

    I really like the actual game, so I gave this a try. Seemed decent at first, but about five minutes in I found myself getting nauseated (a la watching your older brother run around aimlessly in Dark Forces). 3D games do that to me sometimes. Too bad. Plus, there wasn't any sound either.

  • Majora

    I really think that Zelda 2 is the worst Zelda game ever. It might be a little better in 3D but still I think it's weird. Maybe because A Link To The Past was my first Zelda game and that game my last. Maybe if I had Zelda 2 first I would think of the other Zelda games bad though.

  • smalahove

    the original was fun but this looks ultrafun

    • wordman

      • chocolatemaster1708

        agree

  • 8bit

    Unity Web Player? What the fuck is this? No Linux support? So much for unity. Why not just use a Java applet?
