There needs to be an achievement for filling out every square on the map on this one and the DX Version. The grid-based map begs to be filled, plus its fun to go through and see what little spots you missed.

Ok, I LITERALLY DELETED A SAVE THAT WAS IN THE WIND FISH'S EGG, BECAUSE I WAS TRYING TO COPY MY SAVE FILE TO BE GUARANTEED THAT I WOULDN'T BE THIS DUMB TO DELETE IT, BUT...

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

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.
