Game was good but too short... however for a demo the best

controls 10/10 easy enough

gameplay 3/10 good game but way too easy because you can cheat with the sword

storyline 10/10 can't be clear enough

overall 8/10 good everything but too short and too easy

"The Legend of Zelda: TOC v0.08" is an example of a game off to a good start and then *CRASH!*, the whole project plummets down and falls to its death. If you visit the home page for this project, you'll find out the last news from it was from 2002.

Controls: 10/10 Couldn't have been much easier.

Gameplay: 8/10 Very fast, however, there are some glitches and you can cheat one you get the sword.

Storyline: 5/10 Straightforward: the brother is lost, kill the pig guy to get him back.

Special Demo Factor: 10/10 Sam Heald did a good job covering the stuff he did not put in the demo, but would have put it in a later demo (like the shop).

Overall: 8.2/10 It's a demo, even though I think this will be the last glance we will have at this game.

“The Legend of Zelda: TOC v0.08” is a decent “Zelda” demo. Being a demo however, it is short.

Graphics: 10/10 the graphics are top notch

Gameplay: 6/10 the sword is awkward and the enemies bounce weird; the dungeon is short; and there are not very many enemies.

Story: 4/10 the brother is lost, that sounds like a side quest.

Controls: 8/10 kind of weird but not bad

Bugfreeness: 9/10 weird bug with the bushes, only happened once.

Overall: With little replay value this game is only good the first time.

A great game for 83+. Although it's around 15 KB, (almost an Application!), it's smaller than many RPG's that are not nearly as good! Of course, it is designed by Sam Heald, author of Mario, so it's wise to expect a lot. The graphics for this game are incredible, the enemy's are very good, and many the game is very appealing. The dungeon (or cave, as they call it), is very large. It's easy to get to the boss though, keep going straight. You only need two keys, which makes this TOO simple!

On a scale of 1-10, this gets a 7.7

Wow. This game is unbelievable! The graphics are perhaps the best I have /ever/ seen on the 83+ and the gameplay is truly zelda-esque. This game remains true to the first Zelda game, but with some improvements. The world and the dungeon are different than in the original and your sword has a side-swiping action to it. You have a shield that kind of does something and a boomerang a la Link to the Past. There are three types of enemies: a land-bound octorock, a bat, and a knightish creature. The world is reasonably big, but the dungeon is lacking, with an unoriginal boss.

The full version of this game would no doubt merit a green page, but sadly, production on this game has seemed to stop. I thoroughly enjoyed this game while it lasted. Due to its short nature, it's not always on my calc, but it's still a programming masterpiece. NOTE: Be sure to increase your contrast wayyy up before playing!
