Storyline

A hero named Link is one day mystically transported to the land of Labrynna. There, he meets a beautiful, blue-haired singer named Nayru, who is secretly the Oracle of Ages. As the Oracle, Nayru possesses the power to travel through time and keep the flows of time in order. But a dark shadow appears and takes the form of a woman who calls herself Veran, Sorceress of Shadows. She possesses Nayru and uses her powers to travel to the past and change the present. Soon, the world is in chaos! In the past, "Nayru" makes an endless day for the ruler of the world, Queen Ambi. This is an evil plot to create a tower of darkness that Veran intends to climb and use to totally destroy all of Labrynna! However, Link is coming to the rescue. Guided by the Maku Tree in a quest to discover the eight Essences of Time to defeat Veran and aided by the Harp of Ages, a harp that allows one to travel through time, Link is coming to save the day!

This game needs more publicity

I feel that the Oracle games aren't as well publicized as some of the other Zelda games. Don't get me wrong, they're liked; the name is not thrown about as commonly as Ocarina or Awakening for instance. I'm surprised because these are very good games.

Oracle of Ages was impressive because it manages to fit a lot into a Game Boy Color cartridge at the time. There is a whole lot more to do in this game than any other 2D Zelda game. It adds upon old Zelda tropes, plus adds some new ones. (You can ride animals in this.)

This game's gimmick is that you can travel back and forth in time. Yes, it's a rehash of Ocarina and the level change isn't as diverse as the changes in its sister game Oracle of Seasons. But it still is interesting.

I like this better than Seasons. This is more-puzzle heavy and the other is more battle-heavy, but the puzzles in this aren't as difficult as the battles in the other one. You'll die a lot less. I highly suggest you play this game first. I also think this game has a lot more plot to it.

I am really fond that you can link this game up with Seasons, which allows you to obtain more items and the final true boss and ending. I can't think of another game that does this.

Overall, I think this should be considered one of the best Zelda games.
