Zelda 2 ROM Download for NES 


With action and role play in the same sentence, what more could you ask for. Games based on action-role play themes are the best kind as they keep us excited till the end of the game. The surge of emotion takes place as we try to clear a level that we can't seem to cross. One of such games that must be played by every action & role play gamer is Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.


Game Play

Zelda 2 is the sequel of the Legend of Zelda. This time, Link has a mission to save princess Zelda, who has fallen under a sleeping spell. The game has a little bit of similarity in gameplay as both games feature side-scrolling areas within a larger top-down world map. 
After defeating the enemies, the player controlling Link will gain experience points to upgrade his attack, magic, and life. The attributes can rise to eight levels. Raising attack strengthens Link's sword's offensive power; expanding magic decreases magic points. Link's combat style has changed in this game as Link is now armed with a sword and shield. To defend himself from the enemies and attack them, he must alternate between standing and crouching positions.
