11 Nintendo Games We Want on Mobile Devices Right Now

12 of 13
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Just like Mario, no list of Nintendo games for mobile platforms would be complete without a Zelda game. Originally a Game Boy game, it would be perfect as it is already used for gaming on the go.

The action -- adventure game focuses on exploration and combat, where the player traverses the overworld of Koholint Island, whilst fighting monsters and exploring underground dungeons. Dungeons become steadily more difficult and feature bosses to defeat. Defeating bosses earns the player one of eight instruments required to complete the game.

The game has an overhead perspective to allow Link to jump and enables side-scrolling. Players can expand abilities with items that are awaiting collection in dungeons. Certain items will unlock previously inaccessible areas and to complete dungeons. Whilst we don’t condone stealing in games (or in real life!) it is fun to steal from the shop and this changes the player’s character name to thief for the rest of the game.

There are also mini quests and side missions, where players can trade too.

It is perfect for mobile and another game that we just want for every device possible. Tap on the screen and Link would walk in that direction. Tapping on enemies, could cause Link to attack that enemy. Tapping and holding Link could charge Link for a super attack.
