Product Description

This colorized version of the original Game Boy hit, released in 1998, is a side quest that deviates as much from the traditional Zelda storyline as the N64's Majora's Mask. The story is completely new and original, but the game system is largely the same as in the Super NES hit, A Link to the Past. You explore a vast island named Koholint, opening up access to more new and new areas as you collect special items and solve puzzles. On your way, you gather Rupees and heart containers, use your sword to defeat enemies, and push plenty of blocks around. The DX (=Deluxe) version features one new dungeon and GB Printer support

From the Manufacturer

The legendary Link of Hirule tackles a new quest on the Game Boy Color! Can Link escape from the mysterious island of Koholint? The island is a place where dreams and reality merge and overlap in surprising ways. Does the talking owl hold the secret to your quest? Perhaps so, but he won't share it with Link until you've conquered five dungeons packed with treacherous foes. To return to the world that he knows, Link must find the eight instruments of the Sirens. There are plenty of secrets to explore-including a secret dungeon only accessible on the Game Boy Color system.

My boyfriend got my a game boy color for the holidays last year. I'm a big vidiot so this gift wasn't that nuts -- but I still wondered "why the heck do I need a game boy color? I already have enough video game systems!" Well, Zelda answered that question and gave me a reason to fall in love with my GBC.
Zelda's simply faboo. I loved all the older Zelda games because they're so challenging and it's hard to get sick of them. The new Ocarina of Time (for N64) is *FANTASTIC* with graphics that rival Play Station games -- and I'm almost done beating it, but lately I've been focusing my time on the small screen (GB color, that is).
Link's Awakening doesn't quite compare to Ocarina, but for a small screen edition the graphics are quite impressive. The dungeons and other areas are vast and colorful; lots of "bad guys" to battle and even secret "warp tunnels" and other hidden gems to find. There's so much to do that I know I'll have to invest much more time in order to finish the game.
There's a bunch of other fun stuff to do while playing too. You can play games, take photos, harass chickens, catch fish, dig around the prairie, and trade items (like bows, dog food, and bannanas!)
What I don't like is the item selection; this is mostly due to the lack of extra buttons on the GB. Basically you can only use two weapons at once. So let's say you have your sword and your feather set to your A & B buttons. This allows you to kill bad guys and jump over holes. But let's say you must kill a bad guy then quickly jump over something, and then you need to have your magic ready -- which is not equipped!

"Legend of Zelda:Link's Awakening" is one of the all-time winners of gameboy! Even with all the hype about Pokemon, it's hard to see why this game is passed up in favor of Pokemon. There actually IS a plot in this game (unlike Pokemon), but it's a little murky near the beginning, though soon becomes a touch disturbing, and leaves you questioning your mission as the Nightmares (bosses) reveal bits and pieces of the history of the island. The music is superb for gameboy, and the endgame combination of music and animation almost made me cry (when will "Ballad of the Wind Fish" be released on cd?). Although pokemon has more replayablity then Zelda (since Zelda isn't really an RPG, but Pokemon is), Zelda has overall better music, better plot development, better puzzles, better graphics (no long animated sequences in Pokemon!), better sprites, and an overall better story. So if you have a choice between Zelda and Pokemon, for your own sake, chose Zelda.

Legend of Zelda is a fantastic game. I'm a 33 year old big kid who bought this game on a whim to pass the time while travelling on business. I logged many hours on the original Zelda about 10 years ago and find this version to be equally entertaining. This game has great graphics, interesting character interactions and challenging puzzles to solve and mysteries to uncover. The game area is huge. The outside world has 100+ screens and each of the eight levels has over 20. I've logged 135+ attempts which has to be over 60 hours and still haven't finished the game. Zelda does a great job of blending problem solving with action adventure. It is too challenging for my 4 & 6 year old boys but they love to watch me play. The older one likes to offer advice; sometimes he's right! The biggest problem I have now is sneaking GameBoy away from them long enough to play.

Nintendo's Zelda franchise is among the most famous series of video games around. Having played and beaten the Nintendo 64 Ocarina of Time, I still found myself longing for this little Game Boy game. Believe it or not, I think that Link's Awakening is superior to Link's Nintendo 64 outing.
Perhaps it is because Link's Awakening has an actual story. For that matter, it's a rather twisted story. Link shipwrecks on the oceans and finds himself on the mysterious Koholint Island. Even though there are beaches, trees, and villages, the most notable thing about the island is the massive egg that adorns the summit of the Tal Tal Heights. That's just the beginning. There isn't a princess to save here - there's something far more strange at the core of this tale. The story makes you want to go on, especially after it takes that one major twist (everyone who has played it probably knows what I'm talking about).
The play control is perfect, complementing the sharp, detailed graphics. The sound, remarkably enough, is not annoying. I must also mention that the dungeons are very well crafted, as are their sinister bosses.
If there ever was an "essential" Game Boy game, this is definitely the one. No Game Boy owner should be without it.

This game is simply the best game for the gameboy you can buy. With 8 dungeons and an entire island to explore, you'll be playing this game for a long time. It has great replay too because once you beat it the first time, you can go back and try to beat it without dying once ( which accesses a slightly different ending), beating it without dying once is hard but possible. Link starts in a small village known as Mabe village, and must wake the Wind Fish in order to leave the island. You find out by level 5 that you are in a dream! If you are looking for an rpg/action game this is definetely the best game to get. Link gets an arsenl of weopons/tools such as the hook shot, magic wand, and the ultimate sword. You get to explore deserts, forests, a bay, moutains, fields, swamps, another village, a castle, and just about every other terrain you can think of. There are many situations where you can't figure out any solution and then you wake up in your sleep at 1:00 in the morning with an idea( I've done it before). I'll make it simple for you, BUY THIS GAME!
