I've never played them, since I don't have a Nintendo, but I have watched gameplay videos and those are the ones I hear are some of the best , so I wanted the closest .

Those games are so old you could easily just emulate them. You're not going to find an ios game that meets those criterias though. You're better off just buying an old console and playing them- it's worth it.

Honestly i would have to recomend getting a 64 emulator for your pc and then playing them.Your not going to find anything that compares to them on ios, the closest thing would be oceanhorn.

I'm gonna go ahead and say you're not going to find anything on iOS right now that is both similar to Zelda mechanically and hits even an ounce of its quality. Ocean Horn and Ittle Dew are the closest I've played. Even on consoles there are very few, like Okami and Darksiders.

If you're willing to relax the former demand, there are lots of great action/adventure and action/RPGs. I see many listed here and I'll throw the Across Age games on the pile, too.

But if you want Zelda, I'd recommend buying a Nintendo console. A 3DS will get you Zelda 1, 2, Link's Awakening, the Oracle series, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, Ocarina of Time, Link Between Worlds, and soon Majora's Mask. A Wii will get you Zelda 1, 2, Link to the Past, Ocarina, Majora, Windwaker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Four Swords Adventures. The Wii in particular would be a very cheap pick-up at this point.

Why is this making me so nostlagic? It was just a few years ago that these games came out. And yet, it feels like it was 20 years ago.

A + B) OceanHorn. It's more akin to a different Zelda title. Closest to these though.
C) Mage Gauntlet. A great game by RocketCat that is probably the closest thing to the original Zelda you'll get on the AppStore. Worth the price and although it has IAP they are more or less cosmetic.

I like Horn a lot. It's much more combat focused than Zelda. However, the game is better suited for mobile gaming than a traditional console ARPG that often required taking notes and visits to Gamefaqs.

I suggest Bastion also for having that type of ARPG Zelda vibe.

I can also say that nostalgia really tints the lenses into rosy colors that are rarely congruent with reality. I find playing a really involved game such as Ocarina of Time to be cumbersome on mobile. Not to mention that in our instantly gratified society, hunting Poe and reaching chocobos are rarely classified as fun in my book.
