Link through the past.
Adventure of Link - NES, 1987
Just a year after the original and Adventure of Link was already a radical departure, introducing side-scrolling to the Zelda series and throwing in additional RPG elements for the first time. Experience Points were included and Link was now given extra lives. It was terrible. If you want to see why it's considered one of the worst Zelda games, check it out on the Wii's Virtual Console.
