    August 2008 - End of Time

    End of Time; by Pineconn
    Rated at: Sapphire (83/100)

    Quick Facts:

    Graphics: 17/20. Wonderful use of the classic set throughout.
    Gameplay: 18/20. Nice, solid gameplay
    Storyline: 9/20. Standard save Zelda from Ganon quest, with the addition of a secret underworld plot twist.
    Sound: 19/20. The music was very appealing
    Design: 20/20. The overworld was expertly made, with an underworld connecting certain peices. The dungeons were put together very well.



    This is one of the quests that will just make you go "WOW". Of all the quests out there, this is my personal favorite.

    At first glance, it appears to be your standard classic quest. However, look again, and you'll find that it's much more than that.

    The overworld is a put together perfectly. At first, to get to a certain area, you'll have to go through a long path to find a level. Then, get the item, and you'll unlock shortcuts to make the overworld more traversable.

    Besides that, there is an underworld. While the underworld in itself is just okay, when combined to the overworld, it is excellent. It serves as a pathway, connecting certain parts of the overworld together, and hiding a few levels...

    The dungeons start out short and simple. However, the further through the game you get, the more complicated they become, until when you reach level 8, your head will spin trying to navigate through the giant mazework of tunnels and traps.

    The puzzles are also good. They start out simple, and like the dungeons, get more complex as you go.

    The botton line: If you want a quest with a killer storyline, flashy graphics, and custom bosses, stay away. But if you want a fun quest with lots of places to explore, a well put together overworld, and music that fits perfectly, download this quest.

    Seriously, I made this quest in, like, 2 months.

    End of Time - First quest, uses classic graphics (Help/discussion thread)
    Link to the Heavens - Second quest, uses Pure tileset (YouTube LP | Help/discussion thread)

    That doesn't mean anything. I've noticed in ZQ that most of my time quest-making is consumed by graphical complexity. If you're working in classic and don't have to worry about all the layers and putting insane amounts of time into a billion different decorations, the actual gameplay can be implemented in a very reasonable timeframe.

    Ya. In fact, the fact that it's in classic is one of the reasons I like it so much. There aren't any flashy graphics to distract me. :)

    By the way, I was trying to make the review fair and not let personal preference interfere with it. Did I do a good job about it?

    Always good to see a detailed review, of course, but End of Time was August's gemstone. Kamala's Tomb was picked for July, and hasn't been reviewed...I only bring it up because I was really looking forward to that review.

    You're right! I just called it July because the last one on the list was June!

    Bobrocks, how's July's Gemstone coming?

    I've been playing EoT for awhile now. I can't remember where I am right now, but I know I'm having a good time with it.
