Back in the 1980s, the initial Legend of Zelda for the NES was a massive success. People all over the world were journeying into the land of Hyrule for the really first time, determining its puzzles and spilling its tricks on the play ground, in the breakroom, at the bar, you call it. A number of its riddles were exceptionally cryptic and if you didn’t have the handbook or map that came with a brother or sister or the game or a friend with all the understanding, who understands how long it could take you to get anywhere.
These days, someone could just Google the proper route through the Lost Woods or the place of additional Heart Containers, but back then, gamers would write their own notes and craft their own maps to help themselves traverse the world and dungeons a bit simpler. One artist by the name of Philip Summers has garnered quite a name for himself by sketching his own walkthroughs for traditional video games all by hand, and a guide for the extremely first Legend of Zelda is his newest creation!
