9.1 Getting To Level 8
Total Life

 


  - Alright, this is it, the final shard of Triforce. It is recommended that you refill your bombs and purchase the bomb upgrades from the Lizard and the Demon Dungeons if you haven't already.
  - 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. 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. 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 you'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.
