Wow, you clearly have put a lot of thought into this. I assume you are doing this to add it to your portfolio/to see if you can? Clearly an act of love.

I would be really interested to see a "sequel" of your own design building off of what you put together! Don't get me wrong the classic Legend of Zelda is great, but also available on everything. As a player is there really an advantage to playing an emulated ROM vs a reconstruction?

That said this looks brilliant!
