You gotta see this: Skrillexquest

Say what you will about Skrillex or dubstep music in general, this has to grab your attention if you are a classic Zelda fan. Someone has written a love letter to the digital frontier by incorporating the music of Skrillex with a Legend of Zelda inspired adventure.

In Skrillexquest you take on the role of the P1, the one who will save a Nintendo cartridge from falling into glitched obscurity because of a fleck of dust that fell onto a connector and started to make the game unreadable.

As the game world begins to fall apart and corrupt into the glitch, artifact pixels begin to attack and stain the landscape with corruption. As the hero it is your job to collect the artifacts and keys to preserving the land.

The game uses the sounds of Skrillex's music to transpose broken lines of code and corruption as a character, Skrillex's music is also used for the soundtrack as well. So if you're not a fan of Skrillex's music, this might be a pass. As someone who isn't that big of a fan, I still laughed when I found the 'bangarang' an odd pun in place of the blue boomerang from The Legend of Zelda fame.

It's a fairly short game with a few collectibles. On my first run I had a 47% completion rating so I am unaware as of yet if there is some kind of bonus for a 100% clear. It made me smile more than once which I think makes playing this game worth the while.
