9.1 Getting To Level 8
Total Life

 


  - Alright, this is it, the Final Shard of Triforce. I recommend filling your Bombs and if you haven't get the Bomb Upgrades from the Lizard and the Demon Labyrinths, get them now.
  - This dungeon is probably the most well hidden dungeon in the First Quest, as there are no clues of where it is and there's no visible entrance to it, but if you were curious enough, I'm sure you've already accidentally found it. I did on my first run through the game. From the Start Screen, head right four screens, up two screens, right one screen, down one screen, and right one screen. There will be a pathway blocked off by a lone bush. This bush is highly suspect, as it is the only one in it's row that is lonely. Whip out your candle and burn it to the ground. A secret entrance has appeared! Enter for the Lion.

  - This dungeon's Potion Shop is one we've been to before. From the dungeon, head left one screen, up one screen, left one screen and up one screen, making sure that you take the far right path. It should already be revealed, but if not, burn the 3rd bush from the top on the right.

Head to the other side of this side scroller and pick up the Magic Book, an item that upgrades the Magic Wand. This Book combines the beam your wand shoots out with Fire, so when your beam hits something (Including walls) fire will ignite! Plus, if the room's dark, it will light up. Head back to the entrance room and up one.



Manhandla
x 1



You don't need to kill Manhandla, just place a bomb against the top wall and head through it.

You don't really need to kill the Darknuts in this room, but you might as well, because we'll need to later. Bomb the north wall and head through.

x 1



Kill this Manhandla, grab the Map it leaves, and head up using a key.



Gohma
x 1
Stone Statue


This room has Gohma in it. This time, however, she's Blue. She's stronger now, so it takes 3 hits to kill her. Kill her and head right.



Red Darknut

Blue Darknut
x 2
Pols Voice
x 2

Kill all of the enemies in this room, then push the far left block to be able to enter the staircase.

Walk over to the Magical Key. The Magical Key is sort of an upgrade for the Key. This Key works just like a key, but it never disappears, so it's reusable. Head left one, down two (kill the Darknuts) and right one.

You don't need to kill the Wizzrobes in this room, just blow through the north wall.



Gleeok
Heads x 4
This dungeon's boss is Gleeok, this time with 4 heads.

The battle's a lot easier than it sounds, just slice off the heads one by one while dodging the fireballs, which sounds hard, but it's really not.

Grab the Heart Container and head up.

Stone Statue
