When Link awoke, he found himself in a forest he had never seen. Confused, he looked around blankly at the unfamiliar surroundings. He heard pleasant music and laughing voices echoing from deep within the woods. Link followed the inviting voices until he came upon a traveling troupe of actors. He was immediately struck by the beauty of a young woman who was dancing about in circles. When the girl noticed Link, she smiled brightly and called to him.
"Welcome to Holodrum. I am Din, the dancer," she said with glee. "Would you like to dance with me? Don't be shy. It will be more fun if we dance together." She took him by the hand, and he reluctantly began to dance. Unfortunately, this blissful moment did not last long. The sky suddenly went dark, and there was a loud crash of thunder, followed by a resounding, thunderous voice.
"I've found you, Din! You can't deceive me by disguising yourself as a dancer. I am Onox, General of Darkness! Now reveal yourself, Oracle of Seasons!"
Link was blown back by the tornado as he struggled against its awesome force, and Din was swept away in the wind...
--From the GBC Legend of Zelda: Oracle Of Seasons instruction manual.
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle Of Seasons was released at the same time as Oracle of Ages. They were aptly named the Oracle Series. They played almost exactly the same with a different Oracle kidnapped in the storyline. The graphics reminded a lot of A Link to the Past. In this game the boss you fight in level one is same as the boss from level one in the first Legend of Zelda. He's a dragon that shoots three fireballs at a time and you have to hit him in the head. I like the tribute paid to the roots. I also like the train puzzles that are placed throughout the game. I don't think I need to tell you that the Legend of Zelda series is one of the biggest and best in the industry. If you haven't played this game, just remember, you can't go wrong if it's called The Legend of Zelda.
General Onox has kidnapped Din, the Oracle of Seasons and it's up to you to rescue her and the land from seasonal chaos.
