The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Eye Sentry

I’ve been a gamer for a long time, and Skyward Sword is my favorite Zelda game. I loved the Wii version, but I was not happy with the controls. So, I used the Wii U Pro Controller’s IR to put an infrared camera on the screen, and control the game with that. The camera is more challenging than I initially thought, and it took me about two weeks to get it working right. However, the camera works great and I can control the game with the remote. Plus, it looks cool, what can I say?

As our technology and gaming community continues to grow, so does the need for new content to keep the community on the bleeding edge. To that end, earthandstars has created a new site called ‘Tales of the Sky.’

Finding a new dimension: In a time of rapid technological change, a great deal of focus is put on how that technology will impact society. But what is often lost in this discussion is the sense that those technologies – from the internet to cell phones – are actually themselves creations of human ingenuity. This phenomenon can be seen in the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, there are lots of puzzles to solve and monsters to face, but the Eye Sentry is one of the few that fits into both categories. It will initially appear at the Skyview Temple, preventing you from progressing, and you may get trapped trying to figure out how to deal with it. Later on, you’ll run across a lot more of these sentinels in dungeons, but they’re not all that terrible if you figure out how to defeat them.

In Skyward Sword HD, here’s how to defeat the Eye Sentry.

Link Falling - How to defeat the Eye Sentry

The Eye Sentry isn’t a very tough foe to overcome, but it does so in an unusual way. Unlike most other opponents in the game, slicing at the eye or attempting to fire it with a ranged weapon will result in the eye closing. Defeating the eye will not need any kind of warfare.

“This magical sentry has a natural propensity to gaze towards the tip of pointy objects,” Fi may have said. This is a hint for overcoming the Eye Sentry. Rotate your sword in a circle to complete this task. As you spin, the sentry’s attention will be attracted to the tip of the blade, making it dizzy.

This isn’t a spin attack; all you have to do is aim your sword forward at the sentry’s eye and rotate it in tiny circles until the sentry’s eye starts to roll. Don’t go too quickly, but also don’t go too slowly.

Following a few seconds of well-paced sword whirling. Before the sentry’s face comes off, the eye will turn red and become paralyzed, then roll back into its head. The gate underneath it will open at this moment, enabling you to proceed.

Later on, you may come across numerous eyeballs blocking doorways. In these situations, you’ll need to make them all dizzy at the same time, so utilize high platforms to position yourself between them and incapacitate them all at once.

After discovering the existence of HD eye-sentry, I was eager to see how far this new tech has come since its first demo at E3 2011. I must say, it has come a long way. With the addition of a second camera in the middle of the screen, the Skyward Sword HD Eye Sentry experience is now much more immersive and interactive than ever. The live-action Zelda scene we saw at E3 2011 was a far cry from the reality of Skyward Sword HD Eye Sentry. In the demo, Link was rendered from the rear as a series of tiny dots. The Skyward Sword HD Eye Sentry version of Link is rendered in high definition in the same way, but with one major difference: he is.
