The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus XD


Zelda Mystery of Solarus XD (not to be confounded with DX !) is one of our creations. It’s a game parody that we released on April 1st, 2011. Though it’s a big April 1st joke, it’s a real, full game with two huge dungeons and 5-10 hours of playing.

Zelda Mystery of Solarus XD is made with the Solarus engine, just like Zelda Mystery of Solarus DX.


These are the default controls for Mystery Of Solarus DX. You can customize anyway these controls in the game options, and joypads are even supported.

  • Directional keys: Move Link and select options in the different subscreens.
  • Space bar: The action key. The space bar can be used to lift objects, activate switches, read some messages, open doors and chests, etc. The blue icon displays what kind of action can be performed with the space bar.
  • C key: Swing your sword; save your game when the game is paused; skip dialogs when possible.
  • D key: Pause or resume the game. Use the left and right arrow keys to switch subscreens.
  • X & V keys: Use items. In the game, set your items to the X and V icons to use them.
  • F5: Switch the screen resolution.

Whenever you get lost, check the blue icon in the upper-left corner of the screen: it displays what kind of action can be performed by pressing the Space bar. The green icon represents the C key.


For the moment, the game is available in French, English.


You can download Mystery Of Solarus XD on the development blog :


A complete video walkthrough has been made, but unfortunately only in French for the moment. It can still help if you're lost.
