Platinado família, o jogo é bom mas eu acho que eu sou "millenial" de mais pra achar ele incrível, tem coisa que foi escondida que sinceramente eu acho que só foi pra vender guia na Nintendo Power mas de resto é legal ver que tanta coisa desse jogo passou pras sequencias, tirando isso ainda é um Zelda gostosinho de jogar.

OBS: Esse Link nas artwork do manual é o mais bonitinho de todos os designs de Link até mesmo o Toon Link.

Mastered! I used to speedrun this game 6 years ago, so I am quite familiar with it. Getting all of the collectables was new for me - I had no idea where most of the maps and compasses were! The swordless challenges were also fun to plan out. Great set!
Kinsei1 15 Oct 2022 18:46
Mastered! I'd never done a swordless run before so those achievements were great fun to get.
Enagonius 10 Nov 2022 21:22
Honestly, I think swordless achievements should be in a bonus set, not core.
Spawncalibur 21 Nov 2022 13:54
Swordless that difficult it should be in bonus set instead? Honestly don't know as I havnt played the original in many years so Im curious on that.

35 years ago I got my NES with Rygar, Ikari Warriors, Ghosts n Gobs, and Zelda for Xmas! One of my favorite memories was immediately getting lost in Zelda and somehow ending up in the 5th dungeon, as I ignored the instruction manual and starting hints.
Kaymander 15 Jan 2023 04:40
Swordless isn't actually too bad, I was really intimidated by it at first. I'll see about adding my dungeon order guide into the forum topic somewhere. Basically for the first bit you have to be precise with bombs, then beeline it for the magic wand - which on its own does stabbing damage equivalent to the white sword.

Thank you for this excellent set !
SleepyheadDree 23 May 2023 23:00
Mastered. Swordless on first quest was the most difficult for me because I tried brute forcing it instead of grinding and mapping out exactly where to go. After that, it was mostly just making sure I collected everything. Thank you for the set!
Riddle 1 Jun 2023 07:38
Mastered!
ThePixelJunkie 2 Jun 2023 06:38
Mastered this tonight, great set! Swordless cheevos were actually fun after I found out about the money exploit using the Up+A save and the gambling dood to the left of spawn. Works on both quests too. Otherwise, farming for money/bombs would be such a chore.

Also made me use the magic rod, which I admittedly never used in casual playthroughs. I could see why some people would want swordless on bonus set instead though. Thanks for the cheevos!

Mastered! Thank you for the set. One of my very first games I ever played, it was nice to change it up with the swordless runs. Only time I normally used the wand was on lanmola enemies. Thanks again!

Mastered it! Swordless was real tough but I did it!

Mastered (#9)! Really excellent set. I feel like I've gotten more out of playing LoZ now than when I beat the first quest on my own as a kid (I never found the red ring!). I especially appreciate being pushed to complete the deathless, ringless, and swordless runs. I do feel true mastery of the game and it tested my knowledge and creativity in dealing with the voluntary restrictions. A very satisfying and exemplary set.

Finally mastered it after about a week. The hardest achievement has to be the swordless quest for the first quest.
