3.1 Getting To Level 2
Total Life

 

The First Dungeon

  - Once you have the first shard of the Triforce, you'll be sent outside of the dungeon. Feel free to explore and experiment with your new items. Make your way back to the start screen and head right four screens. Head right four screens, killing the Octoroks, Leevers and Zolas you see on your way. Head up two screens and right two screens, and kill the Moblins here if you’d like. Then go up one, left one and up the stairs to find the next dungeon!
The Potion Shop

  - The potion shop near this dungeon is on the other side of the rock wall, so from the dungeon, head down one screen, right one screen, down one screen, left two, and up once, taking the far right path. Use the blue candle to burn the third bush from the top to reveal a staircase to the potion shop.

R O P E
Ropes move pretty slow, until they see you then they go as fast as they can at you. They're pretty hard to avoid.

M O L D O R M
The Moldorm is a very easy enemy to beat. They commonly aren't alone. Hit it once for each section of its body to kill it.
M A G I C A L   B O O M E R A N G
The Magical Boomerang is an upgrade to the Boomerang, and this one goes a much further distance. It's quite an upgrade.

S T O N E   S T A T U E
Stone Statues have appeared before, but these Statues will shoot a beam at you. If you have the Magical Shield, it can be blocked.



Statue
x 12



This entrance room contains two unlocked doors. Head through the upper one first.



Rope
x 5



This room contains a new enemy: the Rope. Ropes move slowly until they see Link, at which point they will speed up and try to hit him. They are rather easy to kill, so take out all of them and head through the now unlocked door to the left.



Rope
x 6



Kill all the Ropes in this room for a key. Once you have the key, head back to the entrance room and to the right.



Rope
x 5



This room has some more Ropes. Kill them and a key will appear. Grab it and head up.



Rope
x 3



Defeat the enemies in this room if you'd like to, and then head right using one of your keys.



Gel
x 6



In here, there are quite a few Gels. None of them need to be killed, and they don't really pose much of a challenge, so walk around them and grab the compass. You can bomb the north wall to get to the next room (and save a key) so if you have bombs available, that would be a smart move. If, on the other hand, you have none, just head back to the last room and go up.



Goriya
x 5



This room has five Goriyas. You don’t need to kill any of them, but do so if you want some extra rupees. Also, if you kill a certain Goriya, they all will die. Use one of your keys to enter the door to the right.



Gel
x 5



This room has a few Gels. You don't need to kill any of them, just grab the map on the floor. The northern wall can be bombed if you have bombs, allowing you to skip to the next section. We won't do that, so head left and up.



Rope
x 5



Upon entering, the door will shut behind you. This room has many Ropes, and killing them all will get you a key and open the door. Make sure to get the key and head right.



Rope
x 3
Stone Statue
x 4


This room has 3 Goriyas, but they're blue. These Goriyas are much stronger than their red counterparts, so be careful. There are also some Stone Statues in here that look exactly like the ones in the entrance room, but these ones will shoot beams at you. Just avoid the attacks, as the statues cannot be killed, and kill all of the Goriyas for the Magic Boomerang! This upgrade to the Boomerang goes much farther than your old one did, so it will be very useful for stunning enemies from afar. From this room you can either bomb the north wall for a shortcut, or travel left and up.



Moldorm
x 1



This room has another new enemy, the Moldorm. The Moldorm will remove a section of its body every time you hit it with your sword. Keep attacking it until its entire body is gone. After it is dead, a key will appear on the floor. Grab it and head right.



Keese
x 4
Blade Trap
x 4


In this room are some Blade Traps and some Keese. Kill all of the Keese for some bombs, which you could either use on the top wall for a shortcut, or save for later. If you did not bomb the wall, travel left and up.



Rope
x 8



There are quite a few Ropes here, but there's not much to worry about. Kill them all to unlock the upper door, but head right for now.



Gel
x 4



This room has four Gels in it. Use your new boomerang to take them out quickly. After they're gone, 5 Rupees will appear. Pick them up and head left and up. The room north of here contains a Wise Old Man. Head up if you'd like to hear his words. The Old Man will mention that Dodongos dislike smoke, meaning bombs will damage them.



Rope
x 5



There's quite a few Goriyas in here, and very limited walking space, so make sure to watch out for those boomerangs they throw. After killing them all, some Bombs will appear and the doors will open. I recommend picking up the bombs, as we'll need them very soon. Bombing the Right wall will reveal a path to a room with a Wise Old Man. We can walk around to get there, however.



Dodongo
DODONGO DISLIKES SMOKE
-Wise Old Man
We have reached the dungeon's boss, Dodongo. Dodongo doesn't really have any attacks. He will sometimes close his mouth so we can't throw bombs into it.
Just drop a bomb in front of Dodongo and he'll swallow it. Do that twice to kill him.
Once Dodongo has been defeated, grab the Heart Container he drops and head left.

Stone Statue
x 4



Grab the piece of Triforce in the middle of the room, and you'll be healed and sent to the entrance. Congrats, you have successfully completed Level 2: The Moon.
