So, I've never played Link's Awakening. I have, however, beaten the original Zelda gold-cartridge on the NES a few dozen times at least (and still have the full map including Second Quest as a poster on the wall of my garage), and I've beaten the strange Zelda II for the NES a couple of times (that game is HARD), and I've also beaten the masterpiece that is Zelda: A Link to the Past on SNES several dozen times as well. All of this prompts me to ask... On the Youtube videos above, most of the gameplay looks like familiar Zelda, except for one spot that is side-scrolling, and has Link doing a flip and landing on the head of a Goomba straight out of Mario. What?? Is that for real? Link's Awakening has side-scrolling sections with Goombas??
