Game description

The Legend of Lezda is a top-down view fantasy action-adventure game that is obviously inspired by the NES classic Legend of Zelda. Unlike what you might think judging by the title, this is neither a spoof nor a direct clone, but rather an original game with its own mechanics.

The player controls Jinx, a jester in the land of Lorule, who sets out to free the realm from the evil Coven of wizards. On his quest, Jinx is joined by Lezda, a girl with magical powers who helps and advises him. Similar to Zelda, the game world is split into interconnected areas that may be populated by friendly NPCs or monsters, or contain useful items or other points of interest.

The Legend of Lezda was released as freeware, with the author Aaron Bishop accepting voluntary donations. He also proposed an Adware model where ads from sponsors would be shown during transition between game screens, but this scheme appears to have never taken off.
