The Unholy Triforce (CDI)

Three games released on the Phillips CDI (Zelda The Wand of Gamelon, Link the Faces of Evil and Zelda’s Adventure) make up the Unholy Triforce. For the holidays I went through and completed all 3 games.

Two are the first 2 games where you could play as Princess Zelda herself! These three games are officially licensed by Nintendo but as far as most people are concerned are not a part of cannon. I feel like these games were created with good intentions but the execution was just not there.

The three games all have horrible cutscenes in their own way. The two animated games have some of the most comical scenes you have seen. Zelda’s Adventure has just bad voice acting and scenes altogether. The controls are sloppy and lacking in all 3 games (the CDI only has 2 buttons). Progressing through these games is more and more a chore than an enjoyable experience.

Overall I recommend Not playing these and just checking the VODs out If you must play one Wand of Gamelon is the best of the three, they go down hill from there. Checkout my playthrough of all 3 on youtube:
