Product Description

Product Description

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.

Amazon.co.uk Review

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

In this game you go around trying to help zelda from an evil force which is terorising the land. One of the good things about this game is you have a flute which lets you travel through time so if you made a mistake you shouldn't have done you can go back & correct it.Plus you can link up by link cable & trade items with Zelda oracle of seasons.In anway this a brilliant game.

I think that this game is the best I have seen
from gameboy colour! This game is sooooooo challenging! I am always going on the internet to find the guide to help me! So if you want a game that will last a long time buy this one!The objects you use are great and the bosses take a lot longer to defeat than you think! If your not shore what game to buy get this one!

My boyfriend has an old gameboy, and since I never know what to get him for birthday/christmas, I decided I'll get him this game and another one (oracle of seasons). Needless to say, he loved it! In spite of the age of these games, they were obviously well looked after and they work without any problems. Apart from some slight cover damage (which is completely natural), there is no bad point I could give this game.

I have been waiting for a Zelda GB game for ages! I fell in love with Link's Awakening and am currently playing this! This game is much more challenging and there are a lot of cool new ideas to add to the gameplay. I love the concept of playing with time. More items and the good ol trusty trading quest!
If you like puzzles,solving mysteries and exploring, this is the game for you!
This is the thinkers game, not the press random buttons or button bashing.
You have to play this!
FUN FUN FUN!!!

While I'd say it's slightly inferior to Oracle of Seasons (but only slightly) both Oracle of Ages and Seasons go together like hand in glove, you need to get both to fully appreciate either game, as many new areas and secrets open up after playing through both. Very clever marketting on Nintendo's part, but trust me, it's worth it, both are amazing games and rival even Link To The Past in terms of gameplay.

A nice game that give you a challenge to finish. I have played it before and while moving to a new home I lost my game; guess what? because its that good I ordered it again. I have been a Zelda fan ever since O was a kid and I have so much fun playing them. If you haven't tried it yet go for it, its really good.

Being the most puzzle orientated of the two Oracle games Oracle of Ages is a very well thought out game. The dungeon puzzles are some of the best from throughout the series. The main item of this game is the Harp of Ages which combines the time travelling of Ocarina of Time and the world switching of A Link to the Past. This game is at least as good as every other Zelda if not better and a worthy addition to any Zelda fans collection.

Link has a brand new quest and it's one of his best. You're in a wood you have never see before,You hear a cry for help! Form this moment on wards you have a new quest to save Naru oracal of ages and stop history it's self from being destroyed by veran socerces of shadows. This game is based more on puzzel solving than action, though there is still a good amount of action in it. With 8 levels and many side quests this adventure is one almost too big for one game and upon compltion this is proved true when you are given a code to continu your quest in oracale of seasons. In this Land you will meat alys and enimies and animal partners who will help you out in a pinch.
The only downside is that this game will take over your life,
Good luck
