There’s a library of Zelda games you can enjoy, each with different storylines and themes. We’ll give you a short intro for each of them as well as some info on how to play them.

Zelda Classic

Zelda Classic is a modern tribute to The Legend of Zelda, still considered one of the best video games ever. Zelda Classic has been developed into a replica of the NES version. But Zelda Classic allows new quests that can use traditional or enhanced graphics and introduce new challenges and enemies.

Before you play Zelda Classic, why not play games in the original series so that you understand the background?

Zelda Tips and Tricks

For more than 25 years, the Legend of Zelda has enchanted players of all ages with its delightful worlds, rich histories, and lovely music. There’s magic in all of them, from the earliest to the latest. But the earlier games can be challenging, so here are some ideas to make them a bit easier. 

Open a dungeon door without a key

Just enter the first dungeon, exit, and then go back in. One of the northern doors will unlock.

The secret save screen

Usually in Zelda, you have to die before you can save your game. But you can use the up and “A” combo on the second controller to save whenever you please. This will save time and unnecessary deaths! 

Influencing gossip stones

There are gossip stones in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask that mostly tell the time. But if you have the Mask of Truth, each one will tell you something like a gameplay secret. 

Skip to the second quest

Once you’ve conquered Ganon in the first Zelda, you’re allowed to start the Second Quest, But if you type Zelda as your name, you’ll go straight to the second quest. But be warned, it’s more difficult than the first.

Weaponize the sun’s song

If you play the Sun’s Song’s delightful melody to a lot of Gibdos or ReDeads, you’ll freeze them in place! 

Make bomb arrows

In Link’s Awakening, you can combine your bow with your bombs to create bomb arrows to increase the power of your attacks.

Reduce the number of enemies

In the original Legend of Zelda, if you eliminate all the enemies except one on a screen, there will still only be one left the next time you go into that screen. 

A fast travel trick

In A Link To The Past, you can go to Kakariko Village and play your flute in front of the weathercock, which will come to life and take you to eight places you want to visit.

A secret supply room

Behind a fake wall on the main floor in Ganon’s Castle (which you’ll need the Lens of Truth to see), there’s a chamber with fairies and business scrubs ready to help you replenish your strength. 

Steal The Bow

You need an expensive bow to beat the game in Link’s Awakening. But instead of spending a fortune to buy it, just steal it from the shop! But then everyone will call you ‘thief’ for the rest of the game.
