In the early 90's, Nintendo went to hardware manufacturer Philips for help in making a CD drive expansion for their SNES console. Though these plans eventually fell through, Philips did manage to retain licenses to the Legend of Zelda series. In 1993 Philips Interactive Media published Zelda: Wand of Gamelon, and Link: Faces of Evil, two Zelda-based games that were created by developer Animation Magic and were somewhat in the sidescrolling style of Nintendo's own Adventure of Link. Later, in 1995, Philips Interactive Media published a third game, Zelda's Adventure, which was developed by Viridis Corporation, and was in the overhead style of gameplay that most 2D Zelda games use. Nintendo had absolutely no influence or oversight on these projects, and these games are not recognized as being part of the Zelda series in any way.

Ganon and his minions have seized the peaceful island of Koridai and imprisoned Zelda. It is written, "Only Link can defeat Ganon." To do so, he must conquer the hideous Faces of Evil...each more diabolic than the one before. Against all odds, Zelda must be freed and Koridai returned to harmony.
