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.
