The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, called Zelda No Densetsu: Yume o Miru Shima in Japan, is the fourth game in The Legend of Zelda franchise and the first Zelda game for a handheld console. Unlike other traditional Zelda titles, Link's Awakening is not set in Hyrule and does not include the Triforce relic, instead the game is set on Koholint Island where Link has to find the mystical 'Wind Fish' to help him escape the island. Link can only awaken the Wind Fish by solving puzzles and collecting eight musical instruments throughout various dungeons. Fans of the franchise's hack-n-slash style gameplay won't be dissapointed with Link's Awakening. Due to the game's commercial success on the Game Boy, Nintendo released a remake titled 'The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX' for the Game Boy Color 5 years after the original release which introduced color graphics and a new dungeon the game. Link's Awakening was released in Japan on June 6th, 1993, in North America on August 6th 1993 and in Europe on December 1st 1993. The game was an enormous success and earned itself a 89% score on Game Rankings. The game's remake earned a 90% score. Link's Awakening also had a surprisingly good musical score for a handheld title.
