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.
Olafur 16 Jul 2021 08:18
i seem to recall doing so. Just keep shooting at the eye.
Zyvyn 16 Jul 2021 11:34
Ok it does work its just an extremely precise hit for some odd reason.
Zyvyn 16 Jul 2021 12:29
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.
Olafur 16 Jul 2021 13:12
I'd say some of the DX Damageless are easier, if only due to the power tunic.
Ludoro 3 Dec 2021 20:35
Mastered :)
WanderingHeiho 18 Dec 2021 01:38
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).
Olafur 21 Feb 2022 10:59
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.
Kurochi185 2 Mar 2022 23:05
I can't get the saving menu to open no matter what
tr1n 7 Apr 2022 19:01
Well, after playing the dx V this was quite easy
wolfman2000 28 May 2022 03:21
I've now added the ability for folks to compete for the title of fastest fisher person. Catch all five fish in one go.
Kingsombra 29 Aug 2022 18:16
Mastered. It was a fun set to go through and it felt good to play through this after so many years.
Golbi2654 19 Mar 2023 20:53
@Olafurf I heard GBA emulators are focused on GBA and are not the best at GB/C emulation (I played Super Mario Land on mGBA and it has sound glitches), I would recommend Gambette, since SameBoy (the most accurate GB/C emu) is currently not great at achievements and has less features than Gambette.

@Myself Is this really worth playing if you prefer the DX version? Does have any differences compared to DX? By the way DX also works on the Mono GB with slightly more features, which I think would make the non-DX version obsolete even for those who like to play in Monochrome.

no mamen la espada nivel 2 esta rotisima

SrOliveira 27 Nov 2023 05:51

Xiroes 9 Dec 2023 19:10
Mastered! Didn't have much issues until I got to the Nightmare damageless achievement. I really needed to learn that fight inside and out lol. Thanks for the set! Definitely one of the best Zelda games and best games on the GB :D
marshm8low 22 Dec 2023 19:47
such a masterpiece, prefer this set than the dx one, thank you very much!
Padddi 27 Dec 2023 21:33
Mastered. Great set. Maybe mark the missable ones as missable. Had to play it two times, because I overlooked Marins dream.
