Zelda's Adventure is a game that was developed by Viridis for Philips Media and released for the Philips CD-i.
After Philips and Nintendo parted ways, Philips was left with a four-game contract which included one Mario game (Hotel Mario) and three The Legend of Zelda titles. Zelda's Adventure was the final title released as part of its contract, with the previous two being Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and Link: The Faces of Evil. Zelda's Adventure is not considered canon in the The Legend of Zelda series.
The game utilizes sprites and other graphics elements taken from real-world photographs and video. Every screen of the game was produced via dioramas, which were then photographed from the top.
Some have criticized the game for its long load times and low-quality graphics, while a few have praised it for being the only CD-i Zelda game with the traditional Zelda formula of top-down graphics, an expansive scrolling overworld, and several dungeons, each with its own item and boss, within the overworld.
