Pretty impressive. Somebody had a lot of time and talent.

I doubt this will remain active very long, Nintendo usually doesn't like their properties not under their own control.

I played the first three levels and the difficulty is pretty tough until you get used to it. But really fun and a new way to play a classic.

No it's not, I was just playing it.

This is very cool. Yeah, a little hard, but man, does bring back some memories. I'm hoping they'll release an iOS version sometime in the future.

Yup. Looks like Nintendo didn't like it too much. Been taken down.

Re: Zelda 30 Year Tribute...WOW!

Yeah, sad. That was fun as hell to just walk around. Here's the message on the site now:

"SORRY, FOLKS.

Nintendo asked us to remove this site for copyright infringement. I guess Zelda30Tribute was a little too pixel perfect :-) We're sad about that, but we get it. We started this project because we love Nintendo and the joy they have given us throughout the years. From the start of development, we knew this result could potentially happen. Nintendo has every right to protect their IP. No complaints from us, we had a blast working on this tribute and made some friends along the way.

Big thanks to the half million folks who played our game! We learned a bunch and wrote some code that others might learn from, too. We plan to post the project to Github soon, once we've had a chance to remove Nintendo-owned assets.

We both have future software projects in the works. If you would like to keep in touch, please follow us on social media or join our mailing list. We'll let you know!

This was not the greatest game in the world, no. This was just a tribute. Thank you Nintendo for the inspiration!

- Scott and Mike
"

They had half a million people play it? How long was it up for? Message to Nintendo...

Re: Zelda 30 Year Tribute...WOW!

Nintendo, instead of going after harmless tributes and videos, should get their ass in the development room and put out more goddamn games. Their output lately has been pathetic, and with their lack of 3rd party support, they should be putting out even more 1st party games. Idiots.
