Why not go all out for the first? A screen that just may be worth keeping icon_smile.gif

The Challenge:

Restrictions:
Screen Type - Forest (No, you don't have to put a forest overhang. I'll we're asking is that you've got some trees, bushes, etc. The "screen type" is a more loosely enforced rule, just don't go entering a desert shot icon_razz.gif )

On-screen requirements:
One house - Treehouses, caves and other alternatives are acceptable (always).
Waterfall - This can be dried out, made of lava, etc.
And a path - Path can be made of dirt, sand, gravel or any other type of materiel (as long as the path is somewhat recognizable, you're okay).

The Challenge:

Restrictions
The screen must be a remake of an overworld screen from Zelda 1. It can be any overworld screen except the first screen of the game, just so long as it's recognizable as being a remake of the original screen (you can be creative, but don't get so far off that it we can't tell any resemblance to the original).

On-Screen Requirements
Given the nature of this week's challenge, there is only one on-screen requirement. There must be weather/an overlayer of some kind (besides sunny). Fog, rain, snow, fire, whatever. This means you might need to be a bit more creative with the way you interpret the screen. icon_wink.gif

I stepped out onto the midway. I was looking for the pirate ship and saw this small, old tent at one end. It was blue, and had white lights hanging all around it. I decided to check out the tent; it seemed I could hear music coming from inside. As I walked toward it, I passed a crowd of people at the sideshow. I couldn't figure out why they would want to wait in line. I pulled back the drape thing on the tent. There was a crystal ball at the table, and behind it, a girl wearing a hat. She smiled, and asked me if I wanted my fortune read. I said okay, and sat down. I thought about it for a minute, and asked her if she would rather go on the roller coaster instead.

The Challenge:

Requirements:
Screen Type: Overworld (Lake)
On-screen Criteria:
  • Three Trees
  • One Elevation Change
