The entire game could be controlled using just the Nintendo DS stylus, using it to tap or swipe on the screen to strike with Link's sword or use the six unique items found throughout the game. The land is once again flooded in this title, meaning Link travels through the use of a steamboat equipped with a cannon to fend off foes, plotting courses across the waters using the stylus on the map, which you could also write notes on to solve puzzles or mark areas for clues or later secrets. Additionally, the game also utilized the Nintendo DS Microphone, which players could blow into or shout at in order to solve puzzles.

Another interesting difference between ''Phantom Hourglass'' and most other games in the series is the absence of Heart Pieces.
  
Also unique to this game is a timed dungeon that you slowly work your way through, unlocking more floors to it as you progress through the game, collecting items within it that you need in order to enter the next dungeon in the outside world. Eventually, the goal is to complete the timed dungeon and rescue Tetra.

At the 2006 Game Developer's Conference, fans saw the very first glimpse of what would become Link's first quest on the Nintendo DS, Phantom Hourglass. The trailer showed off a game that completely utilized the Nintendo DS touch screen, rather than the more standard use of the d-pad and the control buttons. A year later when the game was released, fans were able to get their hands on a Zelda title unlike anything they had played before.

Gameplay

Like the 2D games, excluding The Adventure of Link, Phantom Hourglass features a top-down view. However, some sections of the game such as certain boss battles and the ocean feature a more traditional 3D view. The entire game can be controlled using just the Nintendo DS stylus, using it to tap or swipe on the screen to strike with Link's sword or use the six unique items found throughout the game. Because of the design of the controls, the entire game can be played with one hand. Additionally, the game also utilizes the Nintendo DS Microphone, which players can blow into or shout at in order to solve puzzles. Another interesting difference between Phantom Hourglass and most other games in the series is the absence of Heart Pieces.

The land is once again flooded in this title like The Wind Waker. Unlike The Wind Waker however, the ocean map is split into 4 regions, and the player's ability to explore has been expanded by collecting Sea Charts. This game mechanic continued in Spirit Tracks. The Sea Chart and the regularly map can be written on using the stylus to make notes. The vast ocean can be explored using Linebeck's steam ship which players can plot a route for by drawing on the Sea Chart.

Also unique to this game is the Temple of the Ocean King, a timed dungeon which players slowly work their way through, unlocking more floors to it as they progress through the game, collecting Sea Charts to access more of the ocean. Eventually, the goal is to reach the bottom of the temple and defeat the boss. This mechanic of a core dungeon was brought back in Spirit Tracks.

Story

One day when sailing in the sea, Tetra and her gang of Pirates are on a search for the mystical Ghost Ship. According to Tetra, the Ghost Ship is ruled by obscure pirates who don't know any of the pirate rules. She expects to find them and teach them that there are rules to being a pirate. One of the pirates starts to talk about the "Protector of Waters" also known as the Ocean King. All of a sudden, their ship is engulfed in a mysterious fog. They come face to face with the Ghost Ship. Tetra hops over onto the Ship and then lightning strikes and she screams. Link jumps to save her, but misses and falls into the ocean. Link wakes up on a strange island, where he meets Ciela the fairy, and old man Oshus. This is the only game in the Adult Timeline where Link has a fairy companion.

Release

Phantom Hourglass originally released in June of 2007 over in Japan, but it later got a worldwide release in October of 2007. On November 20th, 2007, Nintendo of America announced a special Phantom Hourglass Nintendo DS Lite Bundle that would release on November 23rd, 2007 "Black Friday". This bundle included a gold Nintendo DS Lite with a triforce symbol, as well as a copy of Phantom Hourglass. The system is almost identical to that of a limited edition Game Boy Advanced SP.
