I got the "Tower Organ" achievement when I knocked the final pillar down, instead of beating the boss and picking the instrument up.

I really dislike the preoccupation with the Zelda sets to defeat all the bosses without losing hearts. Because when everyone plays 2D Zelda, they obviously play it for the deep engrossing combat, not the exploration and puzzles.

This particular one is worse because you're not allowed to use savestates, even when not on hardcore mode, because then the achievement won't pop. Like, the whole point of having hardcore mode or not is to make the choice available

A good set showcases the strengths of the gameplay, not the weaknesses. When a large portion of a set is based on combat that's widely considered lackluster by fans, those flaws are magnified and it's game-ruining.

The combat is not flawed. You have to learn the boss fights (boss attack patterns & which items to use) and most of them can be consistently done without damage once you do.

I was trying to give No Damage to the first boss and collect the music instrument, and none of those achievements came. The ones I received were the upgrade on bombs and arrows (which happened before activating alone for me).

What these [m] are supposed to mean?
17 Jun 2020
1:34
It means "missable", for example if you get hurt by a boss you can't fight it again without reloading a save. If you save afterwards, you have to restart the whole game. Missable.

We used to have an asterisk instead, but despite my preferences this method became the norm.

I personally prefer the [m], easier to ctrl+f for me personally.

I was goofing around naming a file as "ZELDA" and it changed the music of the menu D:
