      Fixed up a slight typo that may have sent readers to the wrong cave.  Sorry!!
    
    ***AUTHOR'S NOTE***
      The first version of my guide tipped the scales at 176 kilobytes; the first
    triple-figure Zelda guide on GameFAQs (and it's still growing!!).  But for the
    convenience of readers who just want to find a few stray Pieces of Heart, I've
    quickly pieced together this quick little game guide that should allow them to
    find what they're looking for with a minimum of fuss.
    
    
    ====PIECES OF HEART====
      You start the adventure with only three hearts in your Life Meter; worse than
    useless for such a long adventure.  An extra heart container can be found in
    Sanctuary, and a further ten will be granted by defeating the keepers of the
    various dungeons.  This brings your total Life Meter to 14 hearts; six more can
    be found by finding all 24 Pieces of Heart which are scattered throughout the
    two worlds.  Here are their locations:
    
    In the north-western-most corner of Kakariko Village is a cave near a well.
    Jump into the well from above, and look along the north wall for a weak spot.
    Blow it apart with a Bomb and enter the cave for the Piece of Heart.
    
    Next to Sahasrahla's house is a small grey hut which used to be used by the
    thief Blind.  Go into the house's basement, and destroy the weak north wall
    with
    a Bomb.  Inside a chest is the Piece of Heart.
    
    Near Kakariko Village's House of Books is a house where two brothers are
    feuding; one has sealed the door to his brother's room.  Blow open the room and
    you will be able to access a maze, where if completed within 15 seconds the
    supervisors will reward you with a Piece of Heart.  The required route is:
    north, second west, second east, diagonally south-west to just below the sign,
    then south over the fence and west to the goal.  Cyber Predator's record is
    nine
    seconds.
    
    Enter the Desert Sanctuary; inside the room where Aginah is, Bomb the weak
    south
    wall.  Enter the hidden room with the Piece of Heart.
    
    Enter the Desert Palace, and after emerging from the south-west corner of it,
    travel south along the plateau to reach the Piece of Heart.
    
    West of Sanctuary, on a plateau, is a pile of five light-coloured rocks.  Use a
    Dash Attack to reveal a cave entrance.
    
    Reach Spectacle Rock, where two platforms can be reached by jumping off the
    ledge.  The western cave allows access is the entrance to a passage leading to
    a
    Piece of Heart.
    
    Enter the Dark World and travel to the place equal to Spectacle Rock.  Use the
    Magic Mirror here to appear on top of Spectacle Rock, atop which lies the
    prize.
    
    There is an entrance to the Lost Woods just north of Kakariko Village, near a
    Fortune Teller's House.  Enter through here and travel north, and you'll
    eventually reach a clump of nine bushes.  The middle one hides a cave entrance,
    inside which is a Piece of Heart
    
    Climb to the summit of the Pyramid of Power, and gradually leap down the
    various
    levels until you come to the eastern-most point of the bottom level.  Along
    here
    is the Piece of Heart.
    
    After purchasing Zora's Flippers, swim south and over the first waterfall. 
    Then
    travel west until you find a green slope; travel up here to find the Piece of
    Heart.
    
    Near the Lumberjack's house in the far north of Hyrule, the two Lumberjacks are
    working hard at felling a tree.  After defeating Agahnim for the first time,
    they disappear.  The tree they were working on has light-coloured leaves; hit
    it
    with a Dash Attack to reveal a cave entrance.
    
    At the Ice Lake (west of the Ice Lake Cavern) is a circle of stones, where an
    island would be in Hyrule.  Stand in the shallow water inside this circle and
    use the Magic Mirror to warp back to Hyrule, where the Piece of Heart is within
    easy reach.
    
    After draining the water around the Swamp Ruins in Hyrule, there will be a
    Piece
    of Heart waiting at the bottom of the pond.
    
    South of the Dark World's Haunted Grove is a circle of bushes.  Stand within
    these and return to Hyrule, where a cave can be reached.  Enter the cave and
    push the blocks out of the way to reach the Piece of Heart.
    
    Near the Graveyard in Hyrule is a cave, which doesn't seem to have a way to
    reach it.  However, enter the Dark World and at the corresponding spot is a
    ladder which leads to a dead-end.  Climb the ladder and use the mirror to
    appear
    on the platform cave, Bombing the weak north wall of the first room to reach
    the
    Piece of Heart.
    
    In the foothills of the Dark World's Death Mountain, enter the cave which
    corresponds to Hyrule's Death Mountain entrance.  Traverse the chambers to the
    blue bumper which blocks the path.  Using the Magic Cape, you can pass the
    bumper and explore on to find the Piece of Heart.
    
    In the north-west corner of the Village of Outcasts, there is a game where you
    can open two chests for 30 Rupees.  A Piece of Heart is randomly placed in one
    of the chests.
    
    Remember the Piece of Heart gained by completing a maze within 15 seconds?  At
    the location equal to that maze in the Dark World there is a game called the
    Treasure Field, which costs 80 Rupees to play.  If you're persistent, you'll
    unearth a Piece of Heart.
    
    In the Dark World at the location equal to the Blacksmith's shop, there is a
    large number of purple stakes.  Hit them all with the hammer, and the tree
    stump
    will turn into a cave entrance.  Inside lies the Piece of Heart.
    
    In the north-east corner of the Swamp of Evil, there is a cul-de-sac.  Stand
    near here and warp to Hyrule, where you'll arrive on a plateau near a large
    light-coloured boulder.  Lift it up to reveal a cave entrance, which conceals
    the prize.
    
    West of the entrance to Misery Mire is a cave.  Inside a chest here lies a
    Piece
    of Heart, but you need to manipulate the blocks in order to reach it.
    
    At the Dark World's Death Mountain, travel west of Turtle Rock.  There is a
    large boulder which conceals a cave entrance.  Enter the cave and walk north to
    reach an invisible bridge which can be crossed using the Staff of Somaria or
    Ether Medallion to guide you.  Bomb the weak west wall and go south through the
    exit, then use the Magic Mirror to find the waiting Piece of Heart.
    
    In Turtle Rock is an exit in the same room as the chest containing the Mirror
    Shield.  Exit here and you'll find yourself on a narrow ledge.  Return to
    Hyrule
    and you'll find yourself on a platform near a cave, which cannot be accessed
    any
    other way.  Destroy the green Mimics with your Sword and Arrows to enter the
    next room containing the Piece of Heart.

      Nintendo Magazine System provided basic guidelines on where to find all of
    the
    Pieces of Heart.  I added a bit more detail to those descriptions in writing
    this guide.
