Link is traveling on a ship when it is struck by lightening. Awakening up at a
strange island with even stranger inhabitants he learns quickly that he must get off this
island. The only way, so say the villagers, is to awaken the windfish which sleeps at the
top of a mountain in a giant egg.


How would the Zelda series handle the switch to hand held? Very impressively. This
is definetely one of the best, (if not the greatest) game for the gameboy. Towns to
Explore, dungeons to conquer, bosses to defeat, it's your typical awesome Zelda game.
The music, unlike most of gameboy's selection, was decently composed. Hummable
tunes, and diferent instrument effects added to the texture of the music. The grahpics,
pretty standard as far as gameboy. The thing that makes this gameboy game unique is
the gameplay. It's like mixing the adventure from Zelda one, to the interaction in Zelda
two, to the gameplay in Zelda three, and making into it this game. If you have a
gameboy, you must play this game!
