Thanks to the Philips CD-i, we will probably never see a true successor to the wildly popular side-scrolling Zelda game, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Being easily one of my top ten games of all time, this makes me sad every day.
But, there is hope!
A programmer after my own heart, named Konjak, has developed this one-level distraction that is simply beautiful. It plays very much like an action-arcade game, but it definitely sets the stage for a modern platform Zelda and everything that could possibly encompass. I have been wanting to take an idea like this full-scale for a long time now–it is very inspiring.
I love it, and you probably will too.
