Zelda Link’s Awakening
First Game Boy entry into the series, later re-released in colorized “DX” form for Game Boy Color. The game is essentially one long side quest that deviates as much from the traditional Zelda storyline as the N64’s Majora’s Mask. The story is completely new and original, but the game system is largely the same as in the Super NES hit, A Link to the Past. You explore a vast island named Koholint, opening up access to more new and new areas as you collect special items and solve puzzles. On your way, you gather Rupees and heart containers, use your sword to defeat enemies, and push plenty of blocks around.
