The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.

This movie here completes the game in a time quite a bit shorter than what the creators probably originally intended — a warping glitch is used to skip almost everything in the game.

This movie is about 21.7 seconds faster than the previous version by a different author.

If you liked this, be sure to also check out the Game Boy Color version (DX), which completes all the dungeons.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
