Play 'The Legend of Zelda' with just 16 x 14 pixels

By on

Nintendo is in the process of building a new title in the Legend of Zelda franchise but of course, that many not appeal to all gamers. If you’re the sort that loves nostalgia and have a special place in your heart for the original, you’ll no doubt want to check out this unique remake of the 1986 classic.

The 8-bit graphics in the original Zelda were stunning for its time, but could the game still ben enjoyable if the graphics were a bit worse? Strangely, the answer is yes.

Ben Purdy recently finished work on a JavaScript port of the game playable with just 16 x 14 pixels. It came to life as part of a Ludem Dare game jam themed around creating “de-make” style games. Those familiar with the title will immediately know where to go and what to do in order to collect all pieces of the triforce.
