The Legend of Zelda


The Legend of Zelda is an fantasy videogame series created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka back in 1986 for Nintendo consoles. Since its first game's debut, the series is considered one of the most important and acclaimed in the gaming world and most of the titles are recognized by critics as great masterpieces. 

A taste of plot

In almost every games, the main enemy of the series, an evil wizard called Ganondorf (or Ganon), determined to take possession of the mystical object called Triforce, wreaks havoc on the lands of Hyrule by invading them with his hordes of creatures and monsters and taking hostage Princess Zelda, heir to the throne of Hyrule. Link, the hero chosen by the goddesses, always intervenes to stand in the way of Ganondorf's misdeeds. Only few adventures of the main series cannot be represented by this plot. The games seems to be set in a medievalish era.

Gameplay

The gameplay is a mix of exploration, puzzle solving, strategy and action, elements that have remained almost constant throughout the series, except for some technical improvements. Most of the games consist in the exploration of a large number of labyrinths (called dungeons), within which you have to solve puzzles and defeat all enemies before getting to face the Dungeon Boss. As he explores, in each dungeon Link will find an object that will allow him to move forward, defeat the boss and advance through the story. Many of these items are recurring elements in the series and became iconic.
