I was browsing through some Pixelation forums and found a mock-up thread of a NES Zelda remake: www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php I was inspired to do a remake of my own just for fun to see what I could come up with. What started as one mock-up quickly grew out of proportions and I've been adding things for about six months know. I thought it's about time I put something up here.

Few things everyone should know about this piece. First of all, In my opinion LoZ A link to the past is still one of the greatest games ever made. This mock-up is heavily inspired by that particular game. I tried to keep to 16-bit restrictions as much as possible. I blew up the proportions of the overworld tiles so every 16x16 pixel tile in the original game corresponds to a 32x32 pixel tile in my mock-up. I also added the bushes and rocks as additional gameplay elements to make it more interesting.

I might add things later to this, since there are a lot of WIPs lying on my computer related to this(title screen, map screen, inventory etc.).

Everything was done in Photoshop CS3.

This is a few years old but good job on the trees, grass transitions and autumn color set...and just everything else also!

You're right about Link to the Past and this is great work. I need to take the time and appreciate the detail of your work here at length.

And you know, what's really amazing is that all of this could be made into an actual functional LoZ remake, as long as you stick to the 256x224 resolution. Ever heard of Zelda Classic? :D

 I could actually have this game up and running in a couple weeks.

jaumeAV (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/16/2010 12:31

man! this looks awesome.

it somehow reminds me of the minish cap, in that that is like an update to ALTTP, in the graphics.

I like it!  :D

Pretty bad ass!


user
Nether (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/1/2010 23:07

Thanks. Good to hear some honest feedback.

For the perspective issue, I do agree it shouldn't show the back off the cliff. However this is a Zelda game and what I quickly learned while doing this piece that Zelda perspective isn't that logical. This kind of show-all-cliff-faces is very typical, especially in A Link to the Past.

Now that I look at it the holes in the ground could use some refining.

As for the first dungeon screen, I think I strayed a bit too much toward non-saturated gloomier look than the rest of the candy colored screens so that's why it sticks out so much.

 very nice look, I'd love to see this game in action!


user
Neocrone (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/1/2010 18:33

lol i bought zelda "spirit tracks" some days ago and shortly after that i realized that the old zelda games were better.....and your remake of the good old style is perfect!

Lovely environments. I really like the second to last pic.

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 10/30/2010 20:31

Ah! Forgot to favourite it!


user
Markell (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/30/2010 01:35

I would play the hell out of this game.


user
Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/29/2010 15:53

 

That's typical Zelda perspective, being able to see the back of the cliffs.


user
Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/29/2010 15:53

That would be an Armos, though I've got to say that's probably the only thing in this piece I don't think looks right.


user
Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/29/2010 10:05

i would totahly play this game with these graphcis 


user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 10/29/2010 04:06

far more appealing to me than any of the later Zelda stuff (like Minish Cap's awful style).  Nice work


user
Pixelsvinet (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/29/2010 00:43

Jawdropping!


user
Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/28/2010 22:11

 I-i-is that a DARKNUT?!

Besides finding it odd that Link's wielding a shield when it's not in any of the action slots and the fact that the darknut looks like a futuristic warrior from outer space, this piece, good sir, is awesome.

x-death (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/28/2010 17:37

there is a few perpective problems i felt. so i'll give some feedback. however you should know overall i liked this peice. a good attempt at a zelda peice.

third screen from the bottom if you look at the bottom of the peice then you'll notic its suppose to be a cliff. yet you shouldn't see any rocks...if you were on the other end of the cliff you would. but as your showing it i think it should simply be the edge of the cliff and thats it not the rocks as well...

there are a few kinds of rocks, ther eis one inpaticualr i think you've tried to make it look like a hole in the ground or something. it think that needs a bit of work, because while its obvious to what it is, it just looks flat and well sticks out like a sore thumb.

the only other issue i had was with the inbuilding screen (third from top). while games like zelda kept a similoar look at feel. i felt annoyed and confused when looking at it. basically putting it plain and simple i felt like the characters didn't fit in all to nicely with the level.

Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/28/2010 17:18

Awesome, puts my pathetic attempt to shame!


user
Nether (Level 5 Captain) @ 10/28/2010 06:19

Wow. Thanks to everyone for the compliments.

@iLKke and Delicious Thank you very much. Coming from you guys, that's like a hundred compliments. It's been quite a while since my previous post(not counting my hasty werewolf avatar update) and I have learned loads of stuff since so I'd have been worried if there hadn't been any improvement. Hmmm, maybe I should post stuff more often.

I agree with iLKke, it's a very noticable improvement from your last few pieces!
