GameBoy Color : Legend Of Zelda, The: Oracle Of Ages Details



Publisher Nintendo Release Date Unknown
Gas Gauge: 92

ESRB Rating Everyone Views 9851
One of two new Zelda games for the Game Boy Color, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages is geared towards the cerebral gamer, with its heavy focus on puzzle solving. The Triforce has alerted Link to trouble in the land of Labrynna, where the evil sorceress Veran has possessed Nayru, the Oracle of Ages. Veran travels back in time, setting up events that lead to a world where evil dominates. It's up to you to help Link stop Veran and set things straight.

Game mechanics and menus are similar to those found in Link's Awakening, also for the Game Boy. As in almost every Zelda game, you have to traverse eight dungeons and find eight key items. The harp of time is vital to your quest--it's required to manipulate events and stop Veran's rewriting of history.

Although this game is extremely enjoyable on its own, you'll want to use it in conjunction with its sister title: Oracle of Seasons. After you complete one game, you'll be given a password that lets you begin with all your items, statistics, and progress intact in the other. Certain characters will appear only by playing both games. By using a link cable, players can trade items. Game Boy Advance users will find a store that's exclusive to them.

While this is an excellent game, it might be too complicated for younger gamers or those looking for mindless fun. --Raymond M. Padilla

Pros:

  • Dozens of crafty puzzles
  • Great as a standalone; outstanding in conjunction with its sister game
  • Nice bonuses for Game Boy Advance owners
Cons:
  • Lots of reused sound effects from previous Zelda games
  • Longtime gamers might find the story and level design contrived
  • Be prepared for many puzzle-induced headaches
