The Legend of Zelda Story/Outline
|Long ago, in the beautiful kingdom of Hyrule surrounded by mountains and forests... legends told of an omnipotent and omniscient Golden Power that resided in a hidden land. Many people aggressively sought to enter the hidden Golden Land... But no one ever returned. One day evil power began to flow from the Golden Land... So the King commanded seven wise men to seal the gate to the Land of the Golden Power. This seal should have remained for all time... But, when these events were obscured by the mists of time and became legend... A mysterious wizard known as Agahnim came to Hyrule to release the seal. He eliminated the good King of Hyrule. Through evil magic, he began to make descendants of the seven wise men vanish, one after another. And the time of destiny for Princess Zelda is drawing near...
|One night, a girl's voice awakens you from your sleep.
"Help me... My name is Zelda... I am in the castle dungeon."
She telepathically pleads.
You jump out of bed not knowing whether the voice was part of a dream or reality. Upon leaving your bed, you find your uncle, who should be fast asleep at this time, preparing to go out, girded for battle.
"I'll be back by morning," he says as he departs. "Don't leave the house."
You watch him leave with the family sword in hand and shield on arm. This is a night like no other... Who is Zelda? Where had you uncle gone and for what reason?
And so, on an ill-fated night, a new chapter in the legend of Hyrule's hero begins - a new chapter in The Legend of Zelda!
|Ganondorf, the thief, has entered the Golden Land and stolen the triforce. To stop him from taking over Hyrule, seven wise men have sealed the gate to the Golden Land, trapping Ganon inside. Although peace had returned, a mysterious wizard known as Agahnim has gained the King's respect and then without warning has taken over the castle. It is now time for the Legendary Hero of Hyrule, Link, to end Ganon's evil plans.
|This is the third game in a now six game Zelda series which has the original overhead view. There are no levels or HP in this game, instead you locate and receive new items and weapons to enhance Link. You will have to first retrieve the legendary Master Sword and then proceed on to the Dark World to defeat Ganon and recover the Triforce. You can swing your sword as much as you want and still cause the same amount of damage to enemies each blow. More of an action-adventure than an RPG, A Link to the Past continues on the classic Zelda experience that the first two games on the NES began.
