Movement Mechanics in “The Legend of Zelda” « Troy Gilbert
"While Link can move a single pixel at a time, in any direction, the longer he continously moves in any direction the more he gravitates toward aligning himself with the underlying grid of the screen. The tile grid for LoZ is 16 tiles wide by 14 tiles high (including 3 tiles for the status display at the top of the screen). Each tile is 16×16 pixels. Link operates on a half-tile grid, though (32×28 tiles, 8×8 pixels each). As Link moves, if he’s not currently aligned with the half-tile grid, he is adjusted, one pixel at a time, toward the closest correction. As a result, if Link is 4 pixels off alignment he’ll line back up with the grid after moving 4 pixels."

Press The Buttons: Gaming Sound Cues Of Stupendous Excellence
"I have a lot of unrealistic dreams, and one of those dreams is to somehow arrange for the Legend of Zelda "opening a treasure chest" tune to play every time I open something. That melody should accompany every opening that reveals something amazing, from unpacking an order from to unhooking a girlfriend's bra. Holding up the revealed item for all to see is optional."
