Zelda's First Handheld Game is Superb

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening was Nintendo's first attempt at a handheld Zelda game and it's amazing even to this day.

Link's Awakening debuted for the original Game Boy in 1993. Then, it was re-released on Game Boy Color which upgraded it to a color version of the game with an added dungeon in 1998.

Link's Awakening follows the same formula that the first Legend of Zelda on NES and the SNES A Link to the Past had. It's a top down dungeon crawler where you can obtain items and there's a bunch of puzzles to solve. This particular game focuses a little more on the puzzle solving than the action. This is pro...

okay

This game was alright. I didn't play the whole game because I borrowed it, but it seemed playable. I wasn't really a fan of handhelds when I first played it, so my memory of it is slightly negative. It wasn't horrible, it just struck me as a little plain. If you read this, you should give the game a chance anyway because it might be the kind of game that you like.
