The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

So I'm sure the fans were crying out for a NES port of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I mean who wouldn't be - clearly the superior graphical and sound capabilities of the Super Nintendo pale in comparison to those of the prior generation.

Well check it out, your wish has been granted in the form of this unlicensed "port" from China. It's aLttP, but with 100% more screeching home-made NES audio to ruin your day. And worse scrolling. And worse graphics. But tossing these points aside for a moment, this is a fairly accurate port of the third Zelda outing. It just needs to be played on mute.

If I were a younger man I'd dissect this game in detail but for now, this is Blog Squirrel's pathetic attempt at raising awareness of this game. Inspiration for my handful of daily visitors.


  1. The music is alright I think. It's just a shame that a) none of it is from the original game and b) they couldn't be arsed to actually assign different tunes to different areas and it all just plays at random.

  2. Haha the sword sounds like a laser!
