Zelda The Legend of original NES Nintendo Game cartridge only - Cleaned Tested and Guaranteed to Work!

Embark on a quest to find the Triforce, slay Ganon and save Princess Zelda in the timeless adventure game from Shigeru Miyamoto that revolutionized the action RPG genre. Originally released for the Famicom Disk System in Japan, the game arrived in the US on cartridge in 1987. The Legend of Zelda's gameplay incorporates elements of action, adventure, role-playing, and puzzle games. The player controls Link from an overhead perspective as he travels in the overworld, a large outdoor map with varied environments. Link begins the game armed with a small shield, but a sword becomes available to Link after he ventures into a cave which is accessible from the game's first map screen. Throughout the game, merchants, fairies, townspeople, and others guide Link with cryptic clues. These people are scattered across the overworld and hidden in caves, shrubbery, or behind walls or waterfalls.

5 Star Review One of the Best!
This is hands down one of the best games for the Nintendo. I remember getting it as a kid and was blown away and also in awe of how you could save your progress. I added this to my collection again because it would not be right without it. You have action and adventure: not to mention the RPG element. This game rocked back then and it rocks now! Can't say enbough good things about this game.

5 Star Review Help Desk Analyst
Amazing! Besides some wear on the cartridge the game played perfectly without any issues. Saves without losing prior progress and most importantly brings back old memories of playing this game back in the early 90's.

5 Star Review Where it all began.
This game was a gift for my tenth birthday, now 23 years ago. This was back in the day when that rather cheesy though still fun cartoon known as the Super Mario Brothers Super Show was still on TV. It featured a Zelda cartoon every Friday, which was what made me interested in the actual game. This game was where the Legend of Zelda franchise began, but when compared to later games in the series, say Ocarina of Time or a Link to the Past, the differences are quite profound. The exploration is certainly there, but you'll find no villages to explore and most of the people you'll interact with are either shopkeepers or old men in the game's nine dungeons or even well-hidden Mobblins who'll give you money if you can locate them. These last gave rise to the famous line "It's a secret to everybody." Musicallythe game has it going on. This is the origin of the classic Zelda theme, but the rest of the music is just as excellent, from the mysterious dungeon theme to the tense, ominoustune in Deat Mountain, where the evil Gannon (renamed Ganon in later installments), holds Zelda captive. The sound effects, though nothing special by today's standards, are still some of the most recognizeable you'll hear on the NES. Overall this is definitely a game you should ownif you own a NES. And even if you also own the promotional Game Cube disk that features the original Legend of Zelda you should own the NES cart if you own a system. It's well worth it. Besides then you'll have a backup if your main system ever goes on the blink and you need your Zelda fix.

5 Star Review Great game and service
I recently ordered this game and it arrived as if it was brand new! Shipping was fast! Cartridge was very shiny and the save game battery is working flawlessly. Would definitely be enjoyed for a long time!

5 Star Review The game itself is legend!
This is the game that reminds you of your childhood. I was suprised to see how much of the 1st quest I was able to remember. I am now in the process of completing the 2nd quest. I never even bothered with this quest when I was younger so this an extremely difficult task. It took me HOURS to just find the 3rd dungeon (because I missed the flute/recorder in the 2nd dungeon. I just finished the 5th dungeon and I am determined to finally get the 2nd quest completed. The game works great and it was in pretty good condition. I can only imagine that the battery was replaced because it has no trouble keeping my games saved.

5 Star Review Great game, sometimes tempermental
This is an all-time classic, of course. I find I have to toy with it a bit more than my other cartridges in order to get it to work (the blowing trick, etc.) but it eventually does work, and when it does, say goodbye to your entire afternoon.

This is an absolute MUST to any NES owner. Legend of Zelda started it all with a phenomenon that is still continuing today. What a classic, in every sense of the word.

5 Star Review It doesn't get any better than this... or does it?
Next to mario 3, zelda 1 is the greatest game on the nes. With its fantastic graphics, music, and gameplay it gives you that feeling of how great 8-bit games are. Also, if you like the newer zeldas, like ocarina of time or twilght princess, then you should check out the first one because it is just as good.
