This is one of three Zelda-based games released for the CD-i. Ganon and his cronies have seized the island of Koridai and kidnapped Princess Zelda. Link must fight through Ganon's minions to defeat the Faces of Evil, one at a time. He must also destroy Ganon, free Zelda, and bring peace back to Koridai. This is a side-scrolling platform game with animated cut scenes like Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon.

This game and its two CD-I counterparts have lots of camp value, and because of this, they are a popular subject of YouTubePoop remixes etc.
