    -_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~-_-~
    
        This walkthrough is over the Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda.  The game is
    about a hero, Link.  The Triforce, a magical item, has been broken into two
    pieces.  Gannon, the villain, has one piece.  Princess Zelda broke the other
    part into eight pieces, and now Link must find the eight pieces.
        After you beat your first game in The Legend of Zelda, you will be able to
    play through the game again in the Second Quest.  The only thing different in
    the Second Quest is that everything is in different locations.
        As Legend of Zelda has a large map, I will use a standard map grid to
    describe locations throughout this walkthrough.  The map is 16 units
    horizontally, and eight units vertically.  The vertical units will be described
    as A-H, where A represents the units at the top and H represents the bottom.
    For horizontal units, I will use a number between 1 and 16.  1 represents the
    far left, and 16 shows the far right of the map.  Your start location on the map
    is H8.
        This walkthrough covers all the aspects of The Legend of Zelda.  The
    walkthrough will cover how to get through the game step by step.  It will also
    list items in the game.

        This section gives you a step by step process for getting from the very
    beginning of The Legend of Zelda to the end credits.  This section is designed
    so that you can get brief information or an in-depth process.  Each section
    begins with a list of objectives you have to complete.  Below the list of
    objectives are detailed descriptions on each objective you must complete to get
    through The Legend of Zelda in both quests.
        Apart from the first sword, I do not tell you how to get items in the main
    walkthrough section.  Check the 'Items' section for that.

            Objective #1: Get the first sword.
        Go into the cave on the screen (H8) you start in.  A person in there will
    tell you that it is dangerous, and you should take the sword he has lying in
    front of him.  Leave the cave.
    
            Objective #2: Get the first triforce piece.
        Go to the first dungeon now, which on the grid is at D8.  (To get to D8 from
    H8, your start position, go.right, up, up, up, up, left.)  Now you will be in
    the first dungeon.
        Check the first room.  If there is a locked door in it, leave the dungeon
    then go back in and it should be unlocked.  Now, from the first room, go right
    and get the key in that room.  Go back left then up.  In this room, go left and
    then up through the locked door.  Go right and get the map, then go up and get a
    key.  Go back to the room where you got the map, and go right.  Defeat all the
    enemies in this room to get the boomerang.  Go to the right and get the key in
    that room, then go up and encounter the boss.
        If you have a bomb, use it to eliminate this boss in a flash.  Otherwise,
    use the hit and run method with sword pokes.  After you beat this boss, pick up
    the heart container and go into the room to the right to get the first piece of
    the triforce.
    
            Objective #3: Get the second triforce piece.
        The second dungeon is, on the grid, located at D13.  (Or, to get to the
    second dungeon from the entrance of the first dungeon, go right, down, down,
    right, right, right, right, right, up, left, up.)  Go into the second dungeon.
        In the first room of dungeon 2, go right.  Grab the key, then head up, up,
    up, and up.  Defeat all the enemies in this room to get a key.  (If you go right
    herem you can defeat the enemies for an upgrade to your boomerang.)  Go up, then
    up again.  In the room you arrive in, defeat all the enemies.  Go up another
    screen and beat all the enemies.  Make sure you grab the bombs the enemies will
    leave.  Go up one room to fight the boss of the second dungeon.
        To beat this boss, lay a bomb in front of it.  It will eat the bomb and get
    hurt.  Repeat once more and the boss will be defeated.  Grab the heart container
    and go left to get the triforce.
    
            Objective #4: Get the third triforce piece.
        The third dungeon is located at H5.  (To get to it from the entrance to the
    second dungeon, go down, right, down, left, left, left, left, left, down, left,
    left, left, left, left, down, right.)  Go into the third dungeon.
        From the entrance of this dungeon, go left, grab the key, go up, defeat the
    enemies for a key, then go up again.  Now go left and left.  Defeat the enemies
    to open the door below.  Defeat the enemies in the next room and push the block
    on the far left down to open your passage downstairs, where you'll get the raft.
    Now go back up to the room.  Go up twice and grab the key.  Go down, then right
    twice.  Bomb the wall to the right and go through.  Defeat the enemies and then
    go right.  Defeat the enemies in this room and go up.  Now you will fight the
    boss of the third dungeon.
        The easiest way to beat this boss is lay bombs for it to run into.  When the
    bomb explodes on the boss, it will most likely take out several of the four
    heads.  Defeat any remaining heads with a sword poke or another bomb.  Head up
    after grabbing the heart container and grab the triforce piece.
    
            Objective #5: Get the fourth triforce piece.
        The fourth dungeon is located at E6.  To get to it, you must get on the raft

    the mini boss (which is the boss from the third level).  Go up and then right
    three times.  Go down and defeat the enemies.  Go right.  Now you will fight the
    boss of dungeon four.
        To defeat this boss, walk up to it and whack it's heads.  After one head
    dies, it will start running around the room.  Dodge it and manage to take out
    the other head as well.  Grab the heart container and go up into the next room
    for the heart container piece.
    
            Objective #6: Get the fifth triforce piece.
        The fifth dungeon is located above a maze.  To get through the maze, first
    you must visit the person in the waterfall.  The waterfall is at B11.  (To get
    to it from the fourth dungeon, go down across the water, right, right, right,
    right, right, up the right side, up, up, right, up, left, left.)  Walk into the

        Begin the battle by playing the whistle.  The boss will shrink.  Poke him
    with your sword a couple times and he'll die.  Grab the heart container, then go
    up a screen to grab the triforce piece.
    
            Objective #7: Get the sixth triforce piece.
        Now you must go to dungeon six.  The sixth dungeon is located at C3.  (To

    sixth triforce piece.
    
            Objective #8: Get the seventh triforce piece.
        Now it's time to go to the seventh dungeon.  On the grid, the seventh
    dungeon is located at E3.  (To get to the seventh dungeon from the exit of the
    sixth dungeon, go down, left, down, left, down, down, right, right, up, up.)  To
    find the entrance to the seventh dungeon, blow the whistle on this screen.
    (Before you enter the seventh dungeon, you might want to pick up some Bait and
    an extra Key if you don't have one at a store.)
        From the first room of the seventh dungeon, go up then right three screens.
    Defeat the mini-boss (the boss from dungeon 5) in this room and then go right.

    room.
    Go down the pit and come out the other side.  Blow up the wall on the right of
    this room and go through to fight the boss.
        This boss is the same as the boss in dungeon 1, except it has a little more
    hit points.  You shouldn't have much trouble with this boss.  Once the boss is
    gone, grab the heart container and go right one room to pick up the seventh
    piece of the triforce.
    
            Objective #9: Get the eighth triforce piece.
        It's time to get the final piece of the triforce.  The eighth dungeon is
    located on screen G14.  (To get to dungeon 8 from dungeon 7, go down, down,
    right, right, right, right, right, right, right, right, right, down, right,
    right, right, up, left.)  On this screen is a lone tree blocking the path

    tunnel and out the other end.  In the room you arrive in, blow up the wall on
    the upper side of the screen and go through to fight the boss.
        This boss is the same as the boss in dungeon 4, except it has 4 heads
    instead of 2.  The boss should be no problem.  Once you trash it, grab the heart
    container and head north to complete the triforce.
    
            Objective #10: Defeat Ganon.
        Now it is time to encounter Ganon.  The ninth dungeon is located at A6 on

    in which you will find the Silver Arrows.  Go back up to ground level and go
    down and back through the tunnel.  Go up, up, up, and then bomb left.  Defeat
    all the enemies in this room and push the block to reveal a secret passage.  To
    reach this passage, step on the top row of the screen and then rush behing the
    block that rushes forward down the stairs.  Go out the other end of the stairs
    and bomb the left wall.  In the next room, defeat the enemies and go down the

    heads of the creature and then grab the heart container once the boss is dead.
    Continue on to grab the second piece of the triforce.
    
            Objective #4: Get the third triforce piece.

    Whistle and poke the monster to rid the dungeon of it.  Grab the heart container
    and go up, but don't grab the triforce just yet.  Go around the triforce and

    up, right, up, up, right, up, right, up, then through the tunnel into the next
    room of the dungeon.  Go left and then you'll get to fight the boss.
