None of the achievements for "collect X number of rupees" will trigger for me, though all the rest seem to be working fine.

Doesn't work for me. Doubt I have the wrong rom. I already Cleared DX but Idk thought I do it again, guess not.

You can do a few crazy jumps in Angler's Tunnel and end up using a key in the wrong place, softlocking your progress forever during normal gameplay. You can use the warp glitch to fix it if you don't wanna restart.

Players: watch out for A Dream Come True. You must complete the game without dying.

Does the boomerang quick kill on the final boss not work on the original GB version? I can't seem to get it to work and none of the wiki's say its exclusive to DX.

i seem to recall doing so. Just keep shooting at the eye.

Ok it does work its just an extremely precise hit for some odd reason.

Mastered! Probably the easiest Zelda set to master just due to the small amount of achievements and crazy challenges. This version is significantly easier than the set for DX.

I'd say some of the DX Damageless are easier, if only due to the power tunic.

Mastered! Took me by surprise what elements aside from the Color Dungeon were absent in the original release (including the use of the mushroom for phase 1 of final boss).

What emulator are you using? This doesn't work with gambatte.

VBA is the main RA emu for gameboy games. You can also use Retroarch, which in case, I'd recommend mGBA. Works with all three gameboys.
