werdman24's 3DS Map: Legacy of the Wizard
Hey guys, this is g1 werdman24 here. Lately, I've been playing a sweet NES game called Legacy of the Wizard. I remember playing the game back in my childhood and never could quite beat it until just recently. The main reason why I couldn't beat it before is because the scope of the whole game is so gargantuan and convoluted that I needed a map just to figure out how to get to the first boss; and since I was SOL in that department back then, I pretty much gave up on it. Rebuilding my retro game collection, I stumbled upon this gem at my local game store, purchased and took it home, and played the ever living shittake mushroom out of it. Along the way, I had an idea. What if I used my 3DS to take screenshots of the game, and then used MS Paint to put them all together? Well, I did just that, and because I did it, I was able to figure out how to get from Point A to Point B to Point Everywhere Else and ultimately beat the game. It was about 20 years in the making for me and is a personal victory.
Now that I've bored you all to death with my wall of text here (oops), it's time to reveal to you all the map that lead to my victory. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you...
Well, I hope you guys are impressed with this map as I am. Seriously, everytime I look at this map, I think Alice in Wonderland. You go down this hole into a mysterious place and all insanity ensues. Anyway, got anything to say about this piece of work, please leave a comment below; and if you wanna look forward to more of my work, please subscribe as well. Until next time, I'm werdman24 sayning, "Keep on keepin' on!!!"
You can find a copy at your local retro game store for dirt cheap.
LOL. No problem with your wording. But doing a search for "Legacy of the Wizard 3DS" brought me here. I used to play this game all the time when I was young. I loved it! But now I have no idea where the game is anymore after sooo many years, so I've been hoping for a Virtual Console release. =)
Probably could've been worded better, but it is what it is: a map created with my 3DS screenshot by screenshot and put together in Paint. Anyway, glad you liked it.
I came here from a Google search. I was hoping Legacy of the Wizard would be released on the 3DS as a Virtual Console title. So disappointed. =( Nice map, though! =)
A few things you could try. Zoom in on this page, zoom in on my Deviant Art page here (http://werdman24.deviantart.com/#/d5beqye), or save the image to your computer and zoom in in Windows Photo Gallery.
Very cool, too low res to be usable though
Putting the map together screenshot by screenshot really puts the game in perspective.
Cool stuff! Although...it's odd...I remember it bigger than that...
