Released in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the hugely influential Nintendo Entertainment System console (which first appeared in Japan as the Famicom, in 1984), the "Classic NES Series" of Game Boy Advance cartridges present accurate versions of original NES games, for play on the handheld.
Mixing real-time battles with a combination of side-scrolling action and RPG elements, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link puts you in the role of Link, a brave young lad with a sword in one hand and a shield in the other. The world you'll explore is home to a variety of landscapes, including plains, caves, rivers, mountains, deserts, forests, swamps and graveyards. The world is also home to many helpful citizens who will help by offering clues and secret messages.
Eight types of magic can be learned to assist you: Shield, Life, Jump, Fairy, Fire, Reflect, Spell, and Thunder. These will enable you to do things such as fly, cast eerie spells, throw fireballs, increase your jumping power, and recover life points. Also, you can find magic jars, which recover your magic points; dolls, which give you extra lives; rafts, which enable you to cross the sea; and other helpful items. As in the original game, progress can be saved via battery backup. ~ All Game Guide
