Love this game.

Mastered!
7 Mar 13:36 2019
Got the Red Shield but the achievement didn't unlock for me. Bought it from the store. There's no other way to do it, right?
7 Mar 15:20 2019
You can also get it by dropping the blue shield in the wishing well.
7 Mar 15:22 2019
Cool, I'll try that. I should be able to get the Red Shield snagged and then just buy the Blue one to try that out with. Thanks for the suggestion!
8 Mar 0:53 2019
Getting another Fighter's Shield and changing it into the Red Shield via the fountain worked! Odd that it does not trigger when buying it from the shop, though... oh well!
8 Mar 0:57 2019
I guess the person who added battery cheat protection forgot that you could buy it and didn't put the location of the dark world shop as an Alt
9 Apr 18:45 2019
finished in 5 minutes yeah

'Bested Trinexx' seems to be broken. Killed him several times with no damage. Achievement does not come up when the heart is collected but the Crystal achievement does. Tried exiting and re-entering the dungeon as well. No luck.
20 Apr 22:53 2019
Mastered. What a great masterpiece, there's no other one like this on the entire 16-bit era, that's for sure. :')
19 May 16:54 2019
I would say this is the easiest zelda game to master on RA due to the magic cape helping heavily with the damage-less bosses
13 Jul 23:31 2019
This game is good and easy ,i love this game :)
23 Jul 22:35 2019
"Bested Trinexx" wasn't working if the player felt into the pit in the previous room to the boss room. That was counting as "taking damage". I just fixed it, now it's working properly.
26 Jul 12:20 2019
Thanks to Thoreau for fixing the rupee achievements so I could master the set!
26 Aug 6:39 2019
Bested Trinexx is still not working for me. I had about 10 attempts, one of which was in hardcore mode. Got all other achievements so far with no trouble.
26 Aug 23:58 2019
HeavensFury: MASTERED!
1 Sep 15:51 2019
Finally :D
18 Oct 0:43 2019
And mastered, holy crap I can't believe I managed to master this in like 8 hours. But that was so much fun. Thanks for that.
