Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX
Enter ZELDA as your name to get bonus music.
Beat the game without using any continues. You’ll see Marin fly across the screen
during the end.
Save your money:
Buy any expensive item and press Start + Select + A + B as you’re paying. Save
the game, quit, and reload. You should now own the item without paying full
Put the Bow in the A or B slot, then put the Bombs in the other slot. Press
A+B at the same time to shoot.
Steal items from store:
Pick up the item you want at the store. Then go to the corner behind the
register. Run out of the store before the owner sees you. You’ll get the item,
but everyone will call you a ‘thief’ for the rest of the game. If you go back
into the store after you steal something, you’ll get killed.
A Special Song:
Type in ZELDA (All Caps) To get the Special song.
Put the Arrow on the A button. Put the bomb on the B button and press the two
buttons together. You will see a bomb attached to the arrow
Before You get to the next screen, press select and you should be on the next
screen on the ledge. (you may get stuck sometimes).
In level three, the boss will taunt you and say that you’ll never find him.
To get to him, ram the wall with pegasus’ boots. To get infinite rupies, get
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.
Finding Bombable Walls:
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!
Here are the locations of the pieces of heart using the map like a grid. A-Z

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
