The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

released on Jun 06, 1993

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is the first title in the series to be released on a handheld system and the only Zelda title on the original Game Boy. The gameplay is mostly similar to its predecessor with a top-down perspective, however there are short sections in dungeons where the game switches to a side-scrolling view with platforming elements. For this new adventure, Link must go onto each of the 7 temples to retrieve a musical instrument that will help awaken the Wind Fish. Along the way, he must search the land and uncover hidden treasures and items that will allow him to progress on his journey. Since its release, Link's Awakening has been popular among fans and critics.

Jogabilidade: Boa
História: Boa
Arte: Perfeita
Nota adicional: O jogo soa datado, nada que o torne impossível de jogar, apresenta-se como um spin-off da franquia, por isso cria cenários desconectados com a história original da franquia. Divertido, rápido de finalizar, trilha sonora perfeita.

Cultural merit: 3/5
Entertainment: 4/5
Final ranking: 7/10
Letter ranking: B

This game is fantastic. As a sucker for 2D Zeldas, I think this game nailed its atmosphere, its personality, and the dungeon dungeons HOOO BOY THE DUNGEON DESIGNS. This could very well be an example of 'peak fiction' and it only gets better with the rereleases!
