Easy Money:

to the boss, but don’t ram the wall. A bunch of little blobs will start falling

out of the sky. Kill these for as long as you want for easy money.

You can poke any wall to see if you can bomb through it. Just get your sword

out and poke at the wall. If you hear a hollow clank, you can bomb through the


Five Golden Leaves:

When Richard asks you to get the golden leaves for him, go to the castle. To

get one of them, go in one of the first rooms of the castle, defeat all of the

enemies. To get the next one, go into a room where you can bomb two walls. Once

you bomb the walls, another leaf will appear. To get the third leaf, go into

a room and defeat him, and another leaf should appear. Next, exit the castle,

and find a raccoon that throws rocks at you. Then equip your bow. Shoot arrows

at the raccoon until he dies. That’s where you will find the fourth leaf. To

get the Fifth, and final leaf, find a crow sitting in a tree. Equip your power

braclet and your bow. Pick up a rock, and throw it at the crow. When it flies

at you, shoot arrows at it, and it should die. Pick up the last leaf, and bring

it to Richard.


Get the Boomerang and Rooster. Throw the Boomerang and switch to the Rooster.

The Boomrang should hover below you. You can’t get attacked by enemies but you

can now attack them!

Getting the Boomerang:

To get the boomerang here’s what you’ll have to do. First you need to get the

magnifying lens. When you are up to the 5th or 6th level you will have to go to

Koholint Beach and almost at the end of the beach there will be a rocky door.

Use a bomb on it and go inside. You’ll see that moblin guy that kidnapped Bow

Wow and he’ll trade you for the boomerang. Talk to him and he will say he has

found something good that just washed up on the beach, then he will say “I’ll

trade it for what’s in your B button.” You’ll then be prompted to trade, and if

you choose YES you’ll get the boomerang. If you talk to him again he’ll beg you

to give it back, but if you want to keep the ‘rang don’t do it, you won’t get

a second chance. If you trade for magic powder or bombs, you won’t find any anywhere

in the game until you trade back. So I suggest the shovel. It’s only necessary

when you get the slime key

*Note: Sometimes he will reject the item. He doesn’t want something cheap

for such a good weapon
