The Magical Clock stops time for all enemies on the screen, however it is so much more. While it never makes an appearance in any other game. It foreshadows a theme that will become very important in the Zelda game series – time. The clock design was based on a combination of the 8 bit and game manual images. I placed extra support around the winding stem, to ensure it would not break. It should be noted that the clock is also mentioned in The Shadow Prince, a 1992 choose your own adventure book based on the Legend of Zelda.
If you have been reading my blog or keeping up with Zelda you know that time alteration and multiple parallel timelines are part of the story now . While according to the creators this was not the original plan, I’m glad it ended up being this way. Why? Because time travel could actually exist, not to mention parallel universes. Don’t believe me? Meet Dr. Michio Kaku – he is a theoretical physicist and professor at the City College of New York.
So just remember we might be living in a story containing multiple timelines as well.
The Blue Candle can be found in the northern part of the map in a shop. Once acquired, you have the ability to set bushes and even enemies on fire (But only once per screen :-()!
Again, I am discussing the items in the order they appear in the game.
Here’s a map from Zelda Dungeon’s walkthrough, in case you are totally lost.
As far as other candles in the Zelda timeline, there are not any. Apparently the red candle from the Original Legend of Zelda survives and makes an appearance in The Adventures of Link. Candles appear in no other Zelda games. However, the lantern does appear in many of the games throughout the timeline. Perhaps the magic that created the candles and lanterns are somehow connected.
Inspiration for the blue candle was taken from both the 8 bit image and the game manual (both can be seen below).
The most challenging part of this piece was creating the dripping wax effect and the floating handle.
Today we will be viewing part four of the video series that will explain the entire Zelda timeline!
See you on Friday for a mystery post!
It came up Zelda today so here we go. In case everyone has not caught on yet, I am going through each item in the order you should acquire them in the game.
The letter will allow the old woman to brew up the two potions that are available in the game. You may notice it varies a little from the 8 bit image. Due to the minimum size that this type of 3D printing requires inspiration had to be taken from the image in the game manual.
As a little extra touch, the miniature letter has a golden seal with the imprint of the potion bottle punched out.
Here is part three of the video series that will explain the entire Zelda timeline. Enjoy!
