Product Description

Product Description

Nayru, the Oracle of Ages, has been kidnapped by Veran, Sorceress of Shadows, and is forced to assist with Veran's evil plans. Only by playing the Harp of Ages-a magical instrument that lets Link travel through space and time-can the Hylian hero battle foes to save the Land of Labrynna from the endless night that Veran aims to create.

One of the most highly esteemed digital adventures is back on your Game Boy Color console in two new games: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. Both are independent games, but when they're linked between two Game Boy Color consoles via the separately sold Game Link cable, players can share items, uncover story elements, and unlock hidden areas in each game.

Using the Harp of Ages, Link must travel through time and space to save Nayru, the eponymous prophet in Oracle of Ages, who's been kidnapped by the evil sorceress Veran. By learning new melodies to play on the harp, players will travel to the past and affect changes in the present to solve the game's varied puzzles.

In Oracle of Seasons, players help Link embark on a quest to recover the Essences of Nature. To do so, he must first find the Rod of Seasons, a magical item that lets Link transform the landscape into the season of his choice, helping him overcome obstacles and solve puzzles. Ricky the kangaroo, Moosh the winged bear, and Dimitri the dodongo accompany Link on this adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best GB game ever made. July 20, 2001
Format:Video Game
I bought this game because I love the Zelda series and figured it would be a fun portable game but not as good as the other Zelda games for more advanced systems. Wow. I liked "Link's Awakening" for game boy but this absolutely blows it out of the water. It has a very interesting story line that Link's Awakening definitly lacked. Also, it is not just a huge series of "dungeon diving". It has tons of interesting sequences between dongeons and a much larger and better layed out world. Many people (including myself) consider "A link to the past" for snes the best Zelda game ever made even though it is not as well known as its n64 brothers. Well, for those of you who have played "A link to the past", oracle of ages has basically all those great aspects you loved and many new ones. For example, instead of warping inbetween the dark and light world, you warp inbetween the past and present, which is just as fun. (and yes, it has that great "magic mirror" aspect so you can warp back to the present any time and leave your own little warp hole where you came in) Also, symilar to the bird in A Link to the past, you can utilize "gail seeds" (and 4 other types for different effects)to intantly travel to differant points on the map. The 3 animals you will encounter to help you through your journey are another really fun and unexpected thing. Depending on how you choose to do a certain sequence, you will get a flute that you can use to instantly call one of them with. Although the flute will only call the animal that you chose by the way you did the sequence, you will get to use the other animals occasionaly. One more thing that i'll mention are the rings- over 60 of them and each with a different power. That's alot of fun. To conclude, even though this is a gameboy game, it is one of the best Zelda games ever made and THE ABSOLUTE BEST GAMEBOY GAME YOU CAN BUY. I can only wait and wonder what Zelda Advance will be like. O ya.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oracle of Ages...Ages of gamers April 1, 2001
Format:Video Game
I've been a Zelda fan for the past 13 or 14 years. This game (along with it's counterpart Oracle of Seasons) makes for a very good old school feel of gameplay. I fell in love with it and I've yet to beat it (due to lack of knowledge of ...), but I have a very enjoyable time playing the game. Most of the dungons remind me of the good 'ole days where Keese flew around freely, Likelike's took your shield, Octorock's throwing rocks, Moblin's shooting you with arrows, dragons spiting fireballs, Dodongo's eating bombs, multiheaded drangons flying around trying to kill you. And the music grabs you once again. The land of Hyrule is under attack. Old school gameplay, incredible music, familiar characters and dosn't get any better than this. Buy it, I know I will!

Warning: This review may be a bit biased due to the fact it is being written buy someone who has played and beaten ALL the Zelda games. For the gameboy colour system, there are only 2 series of good, quality games. They would be The Legend of Zelda and PokÉMon. If you own a GBC, it would be foolish not to buy this game, unless you are young (5-8) or are very bad at solving puzzles of anykind. I would recommend buying both The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Seasons and The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle of Ages because besides both the games being of excellent quality, there is an interesting feature: After beating one game, you can transfer your character to the other game using a special password. The play time of both the games should range (depending on the skill of the player and weather or not they do all the subquests and explore) from 8-16+ hours. The Zelda series has earned its reputation as a immersive and fun series of games. It can be played if you are a medium-skilled gamer or a hard core gamer. Buy it. A word of advice: Zelda games are no fun if you use a strategy guide or website.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest 2D Zelda Yet June 24, 2001
Format:Video Game
The title of this is somewhat misleading, as I have never had a NES and haven't played the first two Zelda games. Past then, though, I own and have beat every single one. My first Zelda was Link's Awakening, a magical game that everyone should play. While that game is slightly more fufilling, in sheer gameplay you can't touch Oracle of Ages.
This time around, a Zelda game finally has a truly good plotline. The best script since Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages fools you, surprises you and offers more characters than ever before. There is also some great plot twists you won't be expecting.
But everyone knows a story does not make a great game, correct? Fear not. Instead of focusing on brainless swordplay like its companion, Ages' true challenge comes from its mind-bending puzzles. Believe me, I was ready to conquer this game by myself and even I came crying to an internet strategy guide a couple of times throughout. The emphasis on puzzles is especially apparent in the huge (and wonderfully thought-out) bosses. Beating them is more like a good jigsaw than a battle area, yet still offering a little bit of both.
The premise of the game is practically identical to A Link to the Past for the Super NES - You'll travel between two worlds, one bright and lovely, one dark and mysterious. The game makes use of this feature wonderfully, and your time-warping Harp of Ages gets upgraded along the way, soon adding an almost insane level of non-linear gameplay.
Comparing it to Seasons - the game is better in respect to satisfaction overall. The items, found in the complex, wonderful dungeons, are great, although not nearly as good as some of Season's showstoppers.
