Bush Whacker: The closest you'll get to playing Zelda on Facebook

As much as we'd like it to happen, Legend of Zelda will never come to Facebook -- legally. So for those who've been yearning for a similar game on Facebook -- Bush Whacker from the Vancouver-based DJArts Games might be as close as anyone will get without risking copyright infringement.

The treasure-hunting adventure game stars a sword-wielding male character dressed in green (you can opt for a female avatar as well), and he whacks bushes and critters to find coins, potions, gems and other special loot that might be used in a series of missions or to decorate your home. While the Bush Whacker doesn't have Zelda-style dungeon-diving puzzle solving, but you will collect puzzle pieces in each level. Once you have all of the pieces, you'll put them together to create a puzzle monster (kind of like a video game boss), which you then have to defeat by whacking it over the head three times.
