Code your own Zelda-like game on Raspberry Pi #Python #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi @wireframemag
Inn the classic game The Legend of Zelda (1986), Nintendo created an adventure with a level of freedom not seen in its earlier games. The hero Link was able to head off in any direction, slashing enemies with a sword and uncovering secrets dotted around the fantastical world of Hyrule.
The original game’s success speaks for itself, with an ongoing string of much-loved sequels and spin-offs, while the series, as a whole, has left a lasting impact on game design.
For our Pygame Zero remake, we’re going to focus on the original NES version’s top-down gameplay. We’ll create a map made of blocks that will scroll around as Link explores, and we’ll also add some enemies he can dispatch with his trusty sword.
