Zelda – The Legend of Zelda is the first game in the Zelda series for the Nintendo Entertainment System which proved a great success for Nintendo. It launched a franchise that many today know as some of the greatest games of all time. Many people cite Majora’s Mask or Twilight Princess as their favorite Zelda game, but few actually take this NES game into account. Download our ROM for free and see if this becomes your favorite Zelda game!

Both the instruction booklet and the prologue give us the premise for the game. Ganon has infiltrated Hyrule and stolen the Triforce of Power. The Triforce of Power is just one part of an artifact that gives its owner great strength and is a staple of the Zelda games. Zelda then shatters the Triforce of Wisdom into eight fragments and hides them from Ganon. Although Ganon kidnaps her, she sends her nursemaid to find someone worthy to save Hyrule. This is where Link comes in, who must save Zelda and assemble the Triforce of Wisdom to stop Ganon. Thus begins the epic tale of the Legend of Zelda…

Zelda – The Legend of Zelda Gameplay 

As Zelda – The Legend of Zelda is an old game, it features an overhead perspective and an overworld. The flip-screen technique switches the scenery around and allows the player to travel through the environment. The players take on the role of Link. Through the overworld, Link can access secret dungeons hidden around the maps to obtain the fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom. It is necessary to clear these dungeons to progress the story.

The dungeons increase in difficulty, though you don’t need to complete them in a certain order. When it comes to how to progress the game, Zelda – The Legend of Zelda gives its players a lot of flexibility. All of the dungeons contain secret passages and are a bit maze-like. The rooms are filled with enemies, and the player has a compass and a map to be able to navigate through. 

What the game offers: 

  • Nine dungeons!

The game has a total of nine dungeons for players to enjoy. Out of these dungeons, the first eight contain the fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom you must obtain. The ninth dungeon, also known as Death Mountain, is the final dungeon where you defeat Ganon. This is the largest dungeon in the game with 57 rooms! However, to enter this dungeon you must have completed the Triforce of Wisdom.

  • Second Quest

Upon completing the game, players unlock a hard mode known as the “Second Quest”. On the other hand, it’s interesting that if players name their save file “ZELDA” they get to access the Second Quest immediately without having to complete the game! This mode features the same dungeons as the “First Quest”. However, in Second Quest, the dungeons have a different layout and are harder to clear. 

  • 600 separate scenes!

Experience the land of Hyrule freely with a total of 600 separate scenes in the game! Because of this, there are many ways to progress through the game, so make sure to have fun with our free ROM!
