You fill the boots of a young man name Link as he sets out to save the land of Hyrule from a great evil that threatens everything. Link starts his journey with little in the way of equipment and information and it's up to you to get him through the hardships that lay ahead and through the final showdown with evil. Only Link, with your help, can save the princess and bring peace back to the land. From a technically perspective this game still holds up very well and, considering the age of this game, that is quite a feat. Everything from the gameplay to the visuals still remains strong. While they might not be what we are used to from the latest generation of gaming they still manage to remain enjoyable. Many of the games we play now owe themselves to this title and so it's nice to see where and how it all started. If you're looking for a great adventure on the go or you just want to see the roots of the greatest franchise in gaming then you can't go wrong with The Legend of Zelda; whether you're playing it on the old Nintendo Entertainment system, the portable goodness of the Gameboy Advance or the next gen Nintendo Wii. This guide will take you through all nine dungeons of both quests and offer complete detailed sections on all the equipment available to Link on his journey. Also included are the locations of all the games hidden treasures and secrets and finally, a complete Beastiary so you can better understand the many enemies that Link will face. Everything you need to get the most out of this amazing classic is right here without skipping a single treasure, secret or advantage. With this guide and a little courage you'll master The Legend of Zelda in no time. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Same Game, Different Consoles ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Legend of Zelda was originally released here in the States for the Nintendo Entertainment System on August 22nd, 1987. Success for the series followed and the original game eventually saw additional releases starting with it's appearance on a collector's disk for the Gamecube that included Legend of Zelda , Adventure of Link, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. This disk was obtained either from Nintendo or by purchasing a new Gamecube console. Also released was a Gameboy Advance port as part of the Classic NES series; some of the "best" games from the NES days brought back to life on the handheld for twenty dollars a piece. While the gameplay and content remained the same and the portability was a keen feature, the game suffered from visual differences brought on by the aspect ratio of the system being different from the source. These hiccups were easily dismissed for new players of the classic but a hard pill to swallow for classic minded fans. The controls on the handheld were also a point of contention mostly in part to the weak and diminutive D-Pad on the small surface. Flash forward a few years later and Legend of Zelda sees it's most recent, although likely not the last, release on the Nintendo Wii as part of the Virtual Console service. For a small price of 500 Wii Points(roughly 5 dollars) Legend of Zelda could be downloaded and played in all it's splendor. This release was pixel for pixel, a perfect match of the original. Presented in 4:# aspect and in upgraded 480p definition the already sold visual offering was boosted to take advantage of HDTV's. Players could use the Wiimote in a mimic of the original controller layout or make use of either a Gamecube controller or Nintendo Classic Controller. No matter how you play it and where the gameplay remains the same so while this guide was written playing Legend of Zelda on the Wii, it's relevant to all releases. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2.0 Story, Controls and Game Mechanics. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Story overview as well as descriptions of the controls and different aspects of gameplay in The Legend of Zelda is shown below. ~~~~~ Story ~~~~~ Note: This is taken from the manual provided with the game but since some lose\never get\eat the manual it's listed below. The text below is not the work of the author. "In the midst of this chaos, in a little kingdom in the land of Hyrule, a legend was being handed down from generation to generation, the legend of the "Triforce"; golden triangles possessing mystical powers. One day, an evil army attacked this peaceful little kingdom and stole the Triforce of Power. This army was led by Ganon, the powerful Prince of Darkness who sought to plunge the world into fear and darkness under his rule. Fearing his wicked rule, Zelda, the princess of this kingdom, split up the Triforce of Wisdom into eight fragments and hid them throughout the realm to save the last remaining Triforce from the clutches of the evil Ganon. At the same time, she commanded her most trustworthy nursemaid, Impa, to secretly escape into the land and go find a man with enough courage to destroy the evil Ganon. Upon hearing this, Ganon grew angry, imprisoned the princess, and sent out a party in search of Impa. Braving forests and mountains, Impa fled for her life from her pursuers. As she reached the very limit of her energy she found herself surrounded by Ganons evil henchmen. Cornered! What could she do?.. But wait! All was not lost. A young lad appeared. He skillfully drove off Ganons henchmen and saved Impa from a fate worse than death. His name was Link. During his travels he had come across Impa and Ganons henchmen. Impa told Link the whole story of the princess Zelda and the evil Ganon. Burning with a sense of justice, Link resolved to save Zelda, but Ganon was a powerful opponent. He held the Triforce of Power. And so, in order to fight off Ganon, Link had to bring the scattered eight fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom together to rebuild the mystical triangle. If he couldn't do this, there would be no chance Link could fight his way into Death Mountain where Ganon lived." "Can Link really destroy Ganon and save Princess Zelda? Only your skill can answer that question. Good luck, use the Triforce wisely." The story is sparse by today's standards but for the time it was extremely unique to see a story in a video game, let alone a story as thought out or unique as the Legend of Zelda's. ~~~~~~~~ Controls ~~~~~~~~ The system gives you a few options for controlling the game play for NES games downloaded off the Virtual Console since the source controller only had 4 buttons and a D-Pad. You can use the Wiimote itself; when held sideways the layout resembles the original NES controller. Off the three available options the Wiimote offers the closest emulations of the classic NES controller for The Legend of Zelda. Players can also use a Gamecube controller\Wavebird or the Wii's Classic Controller. The Direction Pad move Link around, the start and select buttons offer access to the item screen and pause while the A and B activates\uses whatever item you have assigned to it. For the time a user decided control scheme such as this was very pro gamer. Simple, intuitive and fitting. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Game Mechanics ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Legend of Zelda is played in two main areas; the over-world of Hyrule and the Nine Dungeons scattered about. Gameplay and controls are the same in both but enemies, items and scenery change. Hyrule ~~~~~~ Hyrule is the land above the dungeons. Here Link can find shops to purchase helpful equipment from, local citizens who might help Link with information or a service and plenty of hidden treasures. This acts as the main hub between the dungeons which act as levels, splitting the game into nine parts. Shops ~~~~~ Inside shops Link can purchase a range of useful items that will make his quest easier. Items vary in price and usefulness. Remember that prices aren't set in stone so shop around. To purchase an item simply have Link walk over it. If he has enough rupees then the item will be his. Refer to the shop section for further information. Dungeons ~~~~~~~~ There are a total of nine dungeons scattered about Hyrule. The first eight each hold a piece of the Triforce of Wisdom that Link must collect to be able to face Ganon and the Triforce of Power in the ninth dungeon. The entrances to these dungeons range from being right out in the open to being on a hidden island or even being underneath water. Link will have to search high and low while paying close attention to the clues provided to locate all nine dungeons in both Quest One and Quest Two. Combat ~~~~~~ Link can fight the evils he encounters with a number of items that he'll collect from around the many dungeons. The first weapon he receives is a old wooden blade but upgrades become available in the future. Simply hacking won't suffice for all enemies so Link will have to rely on his cunning and ever growing supply of new weapons to battle back. You can assign any weapon to any of the two main buttons based on preference. Health ~~~~~~ Links health is visible via a system of hearts on the top of the screen. Damage from enemies and hazards cause Link to lose hearts and once all of them are gone then it's game over for Link. Do your best to uncover new Heart Containers quickly so Link can stay in the fight longer. Equipping Items ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Equipping any of the many items Link finds is as simple as opening the inventory screen and assigning a item or weapon to either [A] or [B] then pressing that button to use the item. Some items have defensive properties or can be used for attack while others have no clear use right away. Link will have to uncover the use of said items throughout the game. Saving ~~~~~~ Link can save his progress by either dying, which isn't much fun, or using the save screen which is accessible by pressing Up and Select at one time in the inventory. This will bring up a screen where you can choose to save or even retry from the last save if you need or want to. Sleep Menu ~~~~~~~~~~ This is a new addition to this Gameboy Advance port. By pressing [L] and [R] together a menu will appear where you can reset the game or choose to put the game to sleep. This is useful if you need to step away from the game but haven't saved or don't want to turn it off. Sleeping is good to save battery power. You can wake it back up by pressing [L] + [R] and select. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3.0 Item Descriptions ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Listed below are all the items and weapons found in both quests of The Legend of Zelda.

Some areas may be skipped but can be found in their appropriate sections. ~~~~~~~~~ Grid Maps ~~~~~~~~~ To help keep the quest as clean cut as possible the guide will feature an easy to use set of grid maps. Directions will point to a particular square on the map below by way of a letter and number combination shown like this (A1). To get there you would find the letter A along the top of the map and then the number 1 on the left hand side of the map; the square at that intersection is the location in question. Simple enough right? Good, because the dungeon maps are set the same way. For both the world map and the dungeon maps there are individual legends that tell what everything is and where to find it. Simple yet effective so refer to the world map found at the start of the walkthrough or the dungeon maps found at the start of each dungeons section for help. ~~~~~~~~~~ Checklists ~~~~~~~~~~ Each quest starts with a concise checklist of sections that better help to keep the walkthrough in order and the player on the right track so nothing important is skipped.

The first step for any adventurer on a dangerous quest should be to get themselves armed so let's do that. From Links starting position head into the cave that you see directly to your north where Link will encounter an old man with a wooden sword before him. He warns you "It's Dangerous to go alone!" and to "Take this!". Hmm, he's an old man all alone in a cave, better do what he says. Move forward to grab the sword which will automatically be set to your [A] button; feel free to change it to [B] if that's how you like it. OK, now that Link is ready to rumble let's get going. Exit the cave at your convenience. The first dungeon in Links quest is located to the north of where he started and received the wooden sword but before heading there we are going to help Link better protect himself with a nice and new shield to go along with that... well, that crappy wooden sword...so you'll need the extra help! From the starting area head into the next area to the north(H7) where you will encounter a group of Red Octoroc which mark Links first enemies...which we are going to not bother with for right this second. Avoid the Red Octorocs and move into the next area to the west(G7), avoid the Red Octoroc here and into the cave you will see on the northern mountain side. Inside Link will find himself face to face with a rather rude shop-keep that badgers Link with "Buy something will ya!" Easy, sport. We will by something soon enough. Take note of the large shield he has in his wares. You need to collect 160 rupees to be able to add it to your arsenal. You can collect this much from fighting and defeating the two sets of Red Octoroc that occupy the area outside the cave and that to the east; prepare to spend a little bit of time collecting this much but it's a worthy endeavorer. However if you think Link is ready then feel free to continue on without it. Head back east through the area we first encountered the Red Octoroc in then east into the next area(I7). Link will emerge in a forest area with a small group of Red Octoroc patrolling in a group either to the east of the area or right below where Link emerged to the west. Let's not bother with them for now and continue north through another forest area(I6) and the north into the next area where Link will be greeted with a shore off to the north(I5). There will be a single Zola shooting at Link from the water while a pair of Red Leevers prowl all around. Kill the Red Leevers if they are in Links way but otherwise just run north and enter the next area(I5). Among the brown trees of this area is a group of five Red Octorocs and a lone Blue Octoroc with a Zola shooting at you from random spots in the water. Avoid them for now and head west over the bridge and into the next area(H5) where Link will find the entrance to the first dungeon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Section Two Dungeon One: Claim the Boomerang and bow then defeat Aquamentus for the first piece of the Triforce. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A B C D E F 1 [B ][ ] 2 [ ] [A ][T ] 3 [ ][ ][M ][BR][ ] 4 [ ][ ][C ] 5 [ ] 6 [ ][E ][ ] __ --Legend |C6| E - Entrance |D4| C - Compass |C3| M - Dungeon Map |B1| B - Bow |D3| BR - Boomerang |E2| A - Boss: Aquamentus |F2| T - Triforce Ooh, creepy! It's a tree with a mouth! Bah, nothing can scare Link so head inside where Link emerges in the first room of the dungeon(C6). Take a look around Links current surroundings. Just a little bland, huh? Well, Link isn't here to look at the drapes so let's get to it. Head into the open door to the east and into the next area(D6). Here a group of five Stalfos will greet Link, one of which hold a key that we'll need later. You can see which one has the key because apparently the Stalfos ate it and since they are just skeletons Link can see what they had for lunch. Whether Link kills them all or just the carrier, get that key and head back west into the entrance area(C6) then through the open door to the west(B6). Inside this room are three Blue Keese; they will need to be exterminated so Link can claim another key. With the second key in your possession head back into the entrance area(C6) then unlock the door to the north and head into the area above(C5). Kill or avoid the three Stalfos here, move through the open door to the north and enter the next area(C4). Get rid of the five Stalfos found in this room to claim another key then move through the open to door to the east into the next room(D4) where Link will have to clear a swarm of Blue Keese to claim the dungeon compass. Back track to the previous room(C4) and continue through the open door to the west into the next room(B4). Avoid the Blue Keese in this room, unlock the door to the north and continue into the next room above(B3). Dispose of the Blue Gel in this room and then push the block in the middle of the room any direction to unlock the door to the west. Inside this room(A3) is anther old man who is identical to the sword giver... maybe he is following Link? He tells Link that the "Eastmost Peninsula is the secret!". Hmm, good to know. Back track to the previous room and follow through to the east and into the next room(C3). Kill or avoid the Blue Gel here, grab the Map sitting to the left and then continue through the open door to the north into the area above(C2). Destroy the Stalfos that is carrying the key then unlock the door to the north and head into the next room(C1); this should leave you with one key. Inside this room will be three Orange Goriya tossing boomerangs at Link; defeat them to claim another key then continue through the locked door to west(B1). Quickly move forward to avoid the two traps that come sliding towards Link. Avoid the other traps at the bottom, push the left corner of the diamond the blocks form from the bottom and then go down the newly accessible stairs to emerge in a small underground room with a Bow sitting off to your left. Avoid the four Blue Keese, grab the Bow and then exit back to the trap room(B1) from which you will head back to the room Link received the dungeon map in(C3). Use the last remaining key to enter the room to the east(D3). Defeat the three Orange Goriya present in this room and claim the Boomerang as the prize. Equip it to whichever button that is free then move through the open door to the next area to the east(E3). Be careful in this room! There are two Wall Masters that will drag Link back to the entrance if they get hold of him. While avoiding the Wall Masters grab the key in the lower right corner of the room then use it to unlock the door to the north and head into the boss's lair(E2) where Link will face Aquamentus. Aquamentus is a big green dragon that shots fireballs at Link in groups of three. Simply avoid them and attack the head with direct sword hits or power beams if possible. Once Aquamentus is vanquished claim the Heart Container to boost Links total to 4
