This Zelda adventure, is about Nayru - the Oracle of Ages - which has been possessed by the evil sorceress Veran. Veran is using the Oracle's time travel powers to go back in history and build a tower to block out the sun. Link is magically summoned from a far away world to save the land and rescue the Oracle.

The GBC has good graphics and these are done perfectly - the intro is totally sweet. The bosses are big, the enemies are colorful, well detailed and they really come to life - right down to their faces.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages Action!

The action is awesome! The controls are totally simple and super easy to use. There are new ways to control Link popping up left right & center; picking up the Roc's Feather lets you do flying leaps; rescuing your big flying bear friend let's you ride around on his back and do super-butt-drops. Different weapon attacks, swim fins, seed shooting and magical shields keep the game full of action.


The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages Music

The sound is good stuff. There are classic Zelda tunes plus some magical songs you can play on the Oracle's magic Harp. They're not gonna knock you off of your feet but they're totally suited for the game.
