Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

released on Jan 14, 1987

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is the second major installment in The Legend of Zelda series and the direct sequel to the first game. Like its predecessor, it features dungeons that must be located in the overworld and searched for an item that will prove useful. However, the game presents many very important gameplay changes compared to the previous one, affecting especially the movements and the combat. Moving around the world map involves encounters with enemies that take place on a side-scrolling playfield rather than the top-down perspective for which the series became known.

idk bout this one ima be real

Look, I’m sure Zelda 2 is a great game, I just can’t play it without getting frustrated by its difficulty. I like when games have genuine difficulty that makes them fun, but I don’t consider Zelda 2 one of those games personally.

One of my favorite Zelda games. From a time before puzzles (lame) became a trademark of the franchise, this title is heavy on action (cool). The RPG elements make it a stand-out to this day. The cherry on top is how funny the game is.
