Mastered! Awesome new Additions to this Set. Thanks suspect15 for the really friendly Communication. You helped me a lot especially with translating some Things for me. Youtube Uploads of some new Cheevos are coming soon.
ChronoGear 28 Mar 2023 15:09
Remastered. Pretty manageable revision. Only "Not Afraid of the Dark" and "Apprentice Link" got a little tricky at the end. But if you farm lives then both of those aren't really a problem either.
IzaNamiZX 31 Mar 2023 01:54
Re-mastered! The challenges probably would have been more fun if I hadn't tried to stack so many at once, but the new additions are solid. Cheers for the rich presence upgrades, too.

So this is like YS 3 except bad

Mastered. Thanks for the set.
Throgg 18 Apr 2023 14:18
was able to do all the revision achievements during my no candle no cross run. once u get the no candle achievement go back and get the candle and finish all the palaces, get the keys, p bags, 1ups etc. then do apprentice link separately on a new file.

This was the first game I ever properly completed as a kid (using the warp zones in Super Mario Bros doesn't count).
CassetteCobra 12 May 2023 07:25
Mastered! I personally enjoy playing this game more than Zelda 1 in general. Combat was more fun, better exploration, and overall less cryptic.

For the set, it was great! Abit frustrating at times because of the "No candle and cross" cheev and the cheev where you can't have half of the spells of the game. I did the former alongside the "Ate your frog" cheev and I feel alot of the fustration could've been prevented if I did the latter on the second playthrough.

Two small problems with the set I have is that I wish you could ^+A save for the Adventure Master cheev like you can in Zelda 1 and not being able to do the Work Harder, Not Smarter cheev in the 2nd quest. That would've cut the required playthroughs up from three to two.

For those like myself who are photosensitive, use the ROM labeled "Collector's Edition" as it removes the full-screen multicolor flash effect that happens when you lose a life.
MetalSmasher86 14 Jun 2023 14:43
Mastered! I never thought of the "no optional magic", "palace 6 first" or "no candle or cross" challenges before, but they made for some pretty intuitive challenges. I managed to do the first two together in one playthrough, but I can't imagine traversing the Valley of Death without the candle or cross without the Spell spell...

Fantastic set ! Thank u all

I admit, I didn't think I'd enjoy the revision, but once I started I really enjoyed it. It was a fun challenge. Good job on the set.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. It makes me very happy to hear that you all enjoyed it!

Thank you for the set, but I dont want to play this game again ever!

Please add support for a rom with the 'anti-flashing' mod tyvm:
https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/740/

It doesn't change anything from the base game; even without epilepsy the flashing really bothers me.
suspect15 9 Feb 2024 23:48
It's compatible with the set, added.
