Taking inspiration from the Mario Maker series, players can create and play their own Zelda dungeons in various game styles. They can also share them online and download and play other dungeons designed by other players.


As said before, Zelda Maker allows players to build their own Zelda dungeons and publish them to the Internet for other players to experience. 

Creating Dungeons

Zelda Maker features various elements to create your own dungeons. Unlike Mario Maker, the game doesn't feature various game styles, and features one, universal style. Dungeons can have various themes and players can place walls, tiles, items, enemies, create puzzles, etc. Dungeons can consist of up to 5 floors, and can be connected with stairs. Players can place these items by using their finger in handheld mode, or by pressing buttons in docked mode.


Playing Dungeons

Zelda Maker plays like a 2D Zelda game. Players can play as Link, who can walk around, interact with items, and attack with his sword. Items can be placed around you dungeon for Link to use. Enemies can damage Link, and if Link loses all of his hearts, you will experience a game over. The player can adjust the amount of hearts Link has, from 3 hearts to 20 hearts.


  • C-Stick: Move
  • A: Interact
  • B: Sword
  • X/Y: Use Item

Sharing Dungeons

Players can share dungeons online for others to play. To publish a game, the dungeon needs to be completable with an End Point. Once this is done, the player can name the dungeon, give it a description and up to two tags. When shared, other players can play your dungeons, and give you ratings and comments.
