What is Link's Awakening?

Some of the younger Zelda fans amongst you might not be too familiar with Link's Awakening. The original released in 1993 on the GameBoy, following A Link to the Past. It went in a slightly different direction to its predecessor, with Link washing up on a strange island after a shipwreck. There's chain chomps, goombas and a giant egg atop a volcano. It's definitely one of the weirder entries, but still boasts classic-style Zelda dungeons and weapons.
