Link’s Crossbow Training inc Wii Zapper (Nintendo) Game on Wii take out targets, enemies of Zelda
The game places you in the role of legendary hero Link as he returns to some familiar territories in Hyrule and masters the art of crossbow shooting. Simply slot a Wii Remote and Nunchuk into the Wii Zapper, point it where you want to aim and press the B Button to unleash an arrow at your intended target. You can zoom in on targets by holding the Z Button, or charge up an extra powerful shot by holding the B Button for a few seconds before releasing it. In the so-called Free Movement Combat levels, you can also take control of Link and move him through the level with the Nunchuk Control Stick.
You will play your way through nine different levels, re-visiting the likes of Snowpeak Ruins and Kakariko Village as you try to take out as many targets as possible before the clock runs out. Each level consists of three stages. Target Shooting levels will call on you to simply test your accuracy by aiming for the centre of targets that pop up around the landscape, while Fixed Combat levels place you on a battlefield and require you to spin through 360 degrees as you defend yourself from attackers closing in on all sides. On Free Movement Combat levels, you’ll have to go hunting for a set number of enemies and dispatch of them within the time limit.
Racking up a high enough score across the three separate stages will clear the way for you to progress to the next level, with accuracy the key as you try to build up your points. Higher scores are awarded when you notch up a run of direct hits without wasting an arrow, and it’s also worth letting loose on your surroundings to smash jars, skulls and barrels that might contain hidden bonus items. Your job will be made easier if you manage to take down green glowing targets and pick up the automatic crossbow – a quick-fire alternative to your standard weapon!
Battling to better your own scores is enough of a challenge in itself, but things really come to life when you compete against your friends. Up to four people can take turns playing against each other, passing the Wii Zapper between them as they try to prove they are the best shot in the living room!
Features Use the Wii Zapper to take out targets and enemies as you re-visit stunning locations from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
Up to four people can compete against each other to see who is the sharpest shooter!
Earn gold, silver or bronze medals depending on your performance in each level.
Link’s Crossbow Training is exclusively bundled with the Wii Zapper peripheral
In target-shooting rounds, players shoot bull'seyes as they pop up on the screen. In early stages, targets are stationary. As the game difficulty increases in later levels, the targets move.
In defender rounds, players remain stationary but can look and aim in all directions sometimes even in a full 360 degrees by aiming off screen.
In ranger rounds, players can move throughout the level using the control stick and aim anywhere they want by aiming the Wii Zapper wherever they want to look.
