This is a custom quest centering around the idea of the player not having a sword. It contains a completely original overworld with a standard 8 Triforce dungeon concluded with Level 9 structure, but there are 5 optional lettered minidungeons and two postgame optional dungeons. The game attempts to remain "pure" to Zelda 1; only original Zelda 1 enemies and items appear, excluding one of those postgame dungeons which is full of custom enemies and items. Almost the entire design effort focused around balanced, progressive gameplay so graphics are mostly pure classic, the soundtrack is Zelda 1 with a few other Zelda songs mixed in, and there's a lot more combat and basic exploration than puzzle solving. I hope you enjoy it; I spent a lot of time making it just right.
