I opened 'The Legend of Zelda' series 3 works & 'Game & Watch The Legend of Zelda' with a Zelda clock and timer that you can operate and play --GIGAZINE

◆ The Legend of Zelda
First of all, the first 'The Legend of Zelda'.

The main character, Link, travels to a vast field to collect small pieces of 'Triforce' and rescue Princess Zelda. When the life is full, the beam comes out from the tip of the sword, so I want to proceed without reducing the life, but of course it does not proceed so easily.

Explore the underground labyrinth. The boss is waiting in the back.

It was like this when I played roughly until I defeated the boss 'Aquomentas' in the first dungeon 'Eagle'.

◆ Link Adventure
The sequel to the series 'The Adventures of Link'.

Link to leave again.

The field movement is a top-down type similar to the previous work. This is a symbol encounter system in which enemy symbols appear randomly when you are walking, and when you touch them, you enter a battle.

Side-scrolling type that is different from the previous work in battle and town. At first, you can only do damage by swinging the sword, but you will improve your fighting skills by learning techniques and magic from the swordfighter.

I played roughly to see what the atmosphere was like when I entered the first town, Raul.

◆ The Legend of Zelda Dreaming Island
There is an opening movie before the title.

The stage of this work is a southern island far from the previous two works Hyrule.

Link in distress is saved by Marin, a girl with an impression similar to Princess Zelda, and she will take a new adventure to escape from the island.

From the opening to the beginning that becomes playable, it looks like this.

◆ Birming
The title 'Vermin' means vermin.

All you have to do is move the character with the hammer left and right with the cursor keys or the A and B buttons, and keep hitting the approaching moles.

There are two types, 'GAME A' and 'GAME B', and the appearance pattern of moles is different.

It's simple, but the rhythm is getting more and more comfortable, and you can play repeatedly and innocently.

◆ Clock
The 12-hour clock that appears when you press the 'TIME' button is like a demo play of 'The Legend of Zelda', and if you leave it unattended, you can watch Link continue to subdue Ganon. increase. You can also operate the link yourself from there by pressing the button.

◆ Timer
The timer with the time displayed in triforce can measure up to 10 minutes in 1 minute increments.

Press the B button to change the stage.

There are three stages.

When you start the countdown, enemies will appear and the battle with Link will begin. You can also operate it yourself, just like a clock.

I watched it for 1 minute without operating it. You can enjoy a good struggle.

In addition, if you work on the back side of the inner box where the main body was stored ...

It will be a stand where you can put games and watches in. There is a notch on the right side when facing it, and it is a very helpful point to be able to use it while charging with a USB cable.

Also, the triforce at the bottom of the back will emit light when the power is turned on. It's hard to notice in a bright place, but if you darken the room a little, it will look like this.

If you are not good at action games, you may have a hard time with the 3 works of the 'The Legend of Zelda' series. If you really want to clear it or want to enjoy it, there is a hidden command that you can start from Heart (Life) MAX, so please use it.
