Zelda - Link's Awakening Background
Zelda - Link's Awakening was the first and only Zelda game to be released on the original Gameboy. Despite some unique turns in terms of graphics and gameplay, the Link's Awakening was wildly successful, and influenced all of the Zelda games to follow it. For example, the graphics style had a strong "cartoon" feel, and many elements such as being able to jump for the first time in a top-down Zelda game were first introduced. Other notable departures in Link's Awakening from the first three Zelda games include elements of the storyline, which will be described in more detail below. Despite these changes, Link's Awakening was immensely popular. It was later rereleased on the Gameboy Color and then included updated, color graphics and a new dungeon.

It's here that Link's Quest begins in Link's Awakening...
