One of the most highly esteemed digital adventures is back on your Game Boy Color console in two new games: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. Both are independent games, but when they're linked between two Game Boy Color consoles via the separately sold Game Link cable, players can share items, uncover story elements, and unlock hidden areas in each game.
Using the Harp of Ages, Link must travel through time and space to save Nayru, the eponymous prophet in Oracle of Ages, who's been kidnapped by the evil sorceress Veran. By learning new melodies to play on the harp, players will travel to the past and affect changes in the present to solve the game's varied puzzles.
In Oracle of Seasons, players help Link embark on a quest to recover the Essences of Nature. To do so, he must first find the Rod of Seasons, a magical item that lets Link transform the landscape into the season of his choice, helping him overcome obstacles and solve puzzles. Ricky the kangaroo, Moosh the winged bear, and Dimitri the dodongo accompany Link on this adventure.
One of two new Zelda games for the Game Boy Color, Oracle of Ages is geared towards the cerebral gamer, with a heavy focus on puzzle solving. The Triforce has alerted Link to trouble in the land of Labrynna, where the evil sorceress Veran has possessed Nayru, the Oracle of Ages; Veran travels back in time, setting up events that lead to a world where evil dominates. It's up to you to help Link stop Veran and set things straight...
Game mechanics and menus are similar to those found in the first Zelda Game Boy title. As in almost every Zelda game, you have to traverse eight dungeons and find eight key items. The harp of time is vital to your quest this time: it's required to manipulate events and stop Veran's rewriting of history.
Although this game is extremely enjoyable on its own, you'll want to use it in conjunction with its sister title, Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. After you complete one game, you'll be given a password that can be used in the other to begin with all your items, statistics, and progress intact. Certain characters will appear only by playing both games, and by using a link cable, players can trade items. Game Boy Advance users will find a store that's exclusive to them.
While this is an excellent game, with hours of outstanding gameplay, it might be too complicated for younger gamers or those looking for mindless fun. --Raymond M. Padilla
