About the Game

The Legend of Zelda is a high fantasy action-adventure video game series created by game designers Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka and developed and published by Nintendo. The gameplay consists of a mixture of action, adventure, puzzle solving, and role-playing. The series centers on Link, the main character, who is often given the task of rescuing Princess Zelda and the setting of the series, Hyrule, from Ganondorf, also known as Ganon. The story commonly involves a relic known as the Triforce, a set of three golden triangles of omnipotence.

How it Works
The Legend of Zelda games feature a mixture of puzzles, action, adventure/battle gameplay, and exploration. Most Zelda games involve locating and exploring dungeons, in which puzzles are solved and enemies fought, then defeating the dungeon's boss. Each dungeon usually has one major item inside, which is usually essential for solving many of the puzzles in that dungeon and often plays a crucial role in defeating that dungeon's boss.

Power-ups – Link’s power-ups include more powerful swords, shields, boomerangs, candles, a ladder, a raft, bow and arrows, and a magic wand.
