Ah, the wonders of modern technology. No one would dream that you could play a mind-blowingly complex game such as The Legend of Zelda for the NES on a simple handheld device when it released in the 80s.
Those of us who still have an NES and a copy of The Legend of Zelda are the object of envy among many. Regardless of whether you have the original, or play it via Virtual Console on your 3DS, anyone can play it on their mobile device or computer using this link. Traversing the 2D land of Hyrule has never been easier with this simple and free trick. Any browser that can run HTML 5 is capable of operating the game.
On mobile, the buttons are on-screen in the style of an old NES controller. On your computer, you can use the buttons on your keyboard to control it. The standard arrow keys are used to control Link, and the A and B buttons used to attack and such are simply the A and B buttons on your keyboard.
Playing an old-time favorite is not all you can do here. There are cheats that can be enabled by clicking or tapping on, “Toggle Game Genie.” You can turn on invincibility, edit collision properties so that you can walk “on top” of walls, edit your speed, change the number of bombs you can carry, and give Link unlimited rupees!
The game isn’t a perfect copy, however. The game doesn’t have enemies, so the primary fun will have to be found with simply exploring the world, rather than taking down monsters. Then again, if you ever wanted to explore the overworld of The Legend of Zelda without having to worry about enemies, this is the perfect time to do so.
Will you be trying it out? Do you own an original copy of The Legend of Zelda? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
