Technically there is... but that's a Satelliview ROM, not the original game. Any cheevs for that would be in a different set.

I also think that Swordless deserves to be in the core set. It's not terribly difficult, especially once you get the wand, and it doesn't require any glitches to complete.

Mastered!!! Now for Zelda II

are blue darknuts hurt by the magic wand? I'm hearing mixes things and need to know whether I've goofed up or not.
17 Jan 2021

Yes they are but by the wand itself not by the beam/fire (have to stab them like you do with a sword). They do the same damage as the White Sword does.

Thanks. I ended up finally figuring it out. I should also note that the same goes for fighting Gleeok. You have to be right on his head with the wand.

Mastered! What a great way to enjoy such a classic game. Love live RA!

Excuse me, what do you mean by the achievements that say "Second Quest"? I don't understand English very well, thank you very much.

The game has 2 quests. The 2nd one unlocks after you beat the game and has altered dungeons located in different spots along with other changes. You can also access it by entering ZELDA as your save file name.
9 May 2021
12:54
After you complete the game, you can restart it and play a second version of the game that is different and harder.
9 May 2021

You'll know if a save file is for the 2nd quest if Link on the file select screen is holding a sword up in his hand.

Mastered! I never got very far in this game as a kid (before the internet and you had to talk to friends to figure out stuff lol). Was fun to finally beat it and do the swordless runs. Thanks a bunch for the set!
