The Legend of Zelda 64 Beta
A while ago, some players had leaked a few N64 source code file online. These files also included the beta data for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The leak revived some really nostalgic memories of the players. This beta version is abridged. But it still allows the players to relive the original game from the 90s. All the Zelda fans were super excited by this beta. Players can also experience the beta demo of the Dungeon, which is a recreated prototype of Ganon’s Tower. It also includes beta characters, items, and environmental object assets. But these are way different from the original game as it is the beta version.
The beta version does not consist of a HUD or a health bar. There is no on-screen maker and also has unlimited health. Thus the players don’t have to worry about the health while playing the game. There is a different type of jump attack where the player will perform a summersault jump attack. This was also not included in the real game. There are not many changes except for these.
