Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon

This is one of the few Zelda games I haven’t played, sure it’s widely considered one of the worst games ever made but thanks to the Game Grumps they are playing through the game so I can finally see it in action. It takes a unique idea as it features Zelda as the adventurer looking for Link and her father, so that is the one positive about the game but by far it is the most ridiculous Zelda game ever made, however I’ve never seen The Faces of Evil so perhaps that’s worse. Sure this is one of those CD-i game and isn’t considered canon but it is pretty crazy to watch them struggle to play this game. I struggled to play through Zelda II in college but I enjoyed the game and all sure it was different but it’s a fun game to play. So here we have a game in the similar style and it should be an interesting game but unfortunately, The Wand of Gamelon and it seem likely The Faces of Evil are just bad games. Sure they are not canon games but they came about because of a cancelled CD addition to the SNES, Nintendo agreed with Phillips to make it but Nintendo cancelled the project so Phillips were given the right to some of Nintendo’s characters from Zelda and Mario. Phillips made four games with these Nintendo characters these two as well as Zelda’s Adventure and Hotel Mario.
