Please note:

The solution is based on the American version of the game, so it is possible to find differences in the Spanish version.

Chapter 1

Look at the introductory scene, after which the first thing you will have to do is choose a name to give to your character, which has at least five letters, then press START to confirm it.


Talk to the man inside the house, then exit. Follow the path west, then turn south until you reach the beach. Go east until you are blocked by an enemy. Move it to the side using the shield and advance in the direction of the object you see, take it and return to the village. Keep going north, cut the grass between the two trees until you see a cave.


Enter it and make your way inside, exit, take the item on the left and go back into the forest, passing through the cave again.
When you exit the cave, go north and east until you meet a path. Follow it until you meet a creepy house. Go inside and talk to the woman inside. Use the item you just found in the forest on the kettle.

Once you have the new item, leave and return to the second cave you encountered. From here, go south, then west, then north. Talk to the animal and use the item you last obtained on it (in the creepy house). After the cutscene, go north and open the chest. Now go back to the village and, when the road ends, don't go down, but go east instead. Keep walking and you will find yourself in front of a building. Stand in front of the southernmost statue to open it, then enter.



Dungeon 1 - Tail Cave.

As soon as you enter the dungeon, go west and defeat the two monsters you encounter. Take the item and continue west, open the chest and go back to the entrance.
Go north and hop on a switch, revealing a chest. Open it, then go east, where you'll have to defeat monsters to make another chest appear. Go north, east and north to meet some strange enemies: defeat them and get the item.
At this point, go south, then west three times. Kill the monster and open the chest (remember the crack in the wall). Go north through the door and make your way until you reach the next one, which you have to open by pushing the block. Kill the monsters to make a ladder appear, which you will need to follow. Continue until you reach a chest and open it. Go back to the wall with the crack. From here, go east twice. Go north, open the lock and the chest to your left. Go back two rooms and keep going east, where you will face your first miniboss. Beat him properly and proceed north, where the real boss is. Defeat him and you will have completed the dungeon, from which you will automatically exit.

Chapter 2

Go back to the village and talk to the two guys you will meet. Follow the path north and east, then enter Bowow's house.
Talk to the woman, then go northeast through Mysterious Forest until you see the heart fragment. Grab it if you want and go north. Enter the cave with the head-shaped statue in front. Kill all the monsters inside and saving the animal at the bottom. After that, go back to the village and talk to Madam MeowMeow.
If you haven't already, remember to buy some bombs. Go north through the Mysterious Forest until you come across a house. Go east and you will find the swamp. Go through it and enter the second dungeon.



Dungeon 2 - Bottle Grotto

Use some magic powder on the candles in the room. Go east, defeat the monsters and get the small key. Go east, then south to get another key, then east to get a third. Keep moving forward and go through the closed door. Push the blocks and go up the stairs. Go north and take out the miniboss, then keep going until you see a room with a closed door on the left. Defeat the ghost and open the chest. Go east and get another key. At the bottom, go south, and defeat the enemies in the specific order to make a key appear. Go back one room and enter the locked door. Kill the enemies and go up the stairs. When you emerge, go through the door, where you will have to defeat the boss of this dungeon.

Chapter 3

Go back to the village and once again talk to Madam MeowMeow. Go buy a shovel at the shop (you shouldn't be short of money at this point). Go to the southeast part of the village and enter the building. Talk to the man and play his game, then exit and go to the house at the top of the village. Talk to the woman with the baby and say yes. Enter the little house next to Madam MeowMeow's and talk to the animal. Again answer "yes". Exit, go back to the beach and talk to the animal inside the house. For the third time, answer yes. Go back to the village and exit on the east side. Keep seeing the path you see: when you get to a large boulder, blow it up with a bomb. Follow the second path going south. Keep following him and enter the house. Talk to the man and answer "okay". Go back to the path and follow it north.



When you see the castle, go east and talk to the monkey and say yes. Go north and go down the stairs under the bush. Go underground and return to the surface. First go east, then south where you have to kill the monster and collect the item it drops. Go to the other side of the castle and clean up the enemies. Take the second item and enter the castle. Kill the monsters in the second room to get the third item.
Advance, go up the switch and go up the stairs. Throw a bomb at the monster on the wall below and grab the next item. Exit the castle and enter the next door.
Open it by throwing a bottle at him and killing the monster: take the last item and go back to the man in the house. Talk to him, move the box next to him and go down the stairs.
Go through the cave, exit and go through the labyrinth. Cut the grass in front of the Stonestatue and dig using the shovel: you will find an object. Go back and exit the house. Go north, go up the stairs and use your new item. Go back to the house, go east, then slightly north, until you see a small island on the left. Go around the trees and jump from island to island until you come to a cave. Go inside and get ready for the next dungeon.

Dungeon 3 - Key Cavern

Pick up a bottle and throw it at the door. Kill the monsters and get the key. Take the right entrance and go north. At the bottom, go down the stairs. Take the door to the north, kill the monsters and collect the second key. Go back, take the door to the west and repeat the process. Go back and repeat it with the south door. Finally go to the door on the right and go down the stairs. In the new room you will have to, once again, eliminate all the monsters to get the key. Now go west twice and, after defeating all the monsters, you can get the key. Go north twice, then move south. Kill the blobs and head back north. Follow the path north, then east, kill the snakes and open the chest. Go east and bomb the south wall. Jump over the opening and go north where you will find a chest. Open it and drop off the ledge. Now go north and continue to the left (you will have to bomb a wall). Go back to the entrance and go east where you will find a key. Enter the portal in the center of the opening, then go south and open the various locks. Go down the stairs and through the cave. When you get back in, kill the monsters and go west. Go north and you will find the boss waiting for you. Kill him.

Chapter 4

First go east, then north. Talk to the man and answer "Can". Take the item and return to the village. This is a good time to enter the building in your village. Go to sleep, go through the minidungeon and open the chest at the bottom. Exit the cave and talk to the girl near the statue. Exit the city and go to the river. You will notice that you cannot cross it for now, so go back one screen. Cut down the bushes, go down the stairs and use the boots to get past the strange rocks and return to the top. You will now find yourself on the other side of the river. Go south, then east to find the second village in the game. Talk to the man in the house in the southeast part of town and answer "yes". Take the southwest exit and proceed until you encounter a large monster. Talk to him and go back to Mabe Village.

Go to where the statue is and talk to the boy. Go to the beach again, in the southeast corner. Talk to the girl and say "yes". Enjoy the scene and say "Yeah". Go back to the big monster blocking your way and talk to him. Say "yes" and go east. Now go north three times and defeat the monster. Go down the hole and take the item. Go back to Mabe Village, go north and east when you see some mountains. You will come to another river, where you will have to use your new key. Go west and go up the second stairs: enter the cave and go through it. Enter the cave you see on the next screen and go through it too. Talk to the man and answer "yes". Go west, go down and go east for a few screens until you reach a dry area where you can go down. Do this and enter the giant fish head.

Dungeon 4 - Angler's Tunnel

Head north and grab the map if you like. Go down one screen and jump over the huge opening. Throw a bomb at the block with a crack, push the other one out of the way and open the chest where you will find a key. Keep going north and you will find another cracked stone. Bomb it and open the chest where you will find another key. Go back to the room in front of the entrance: here you have to kill the monsters to open the door. Go east, kill the monsters and go south to find another key in a chest. Keep following the path, making your way through the monsters and opening the locked doors with the keys you collect along the way. It's a pretty straightforward dungeon and you won't have any difficulty completing it in the blink of an eye.

Chapter 5

First, swim to the cave west of where you are. Swim to the big fish and say "yes". Go back to the Animal Village. You can use the nearby portal or walk there. Enter the house in the northeastern part of the city. A goat lives here, talk to it and say "yes". Now go south to the house near the bay: now you have to go to Ukuku Prairie. Go north until you meet the Witch's Hut, and from here turn west. Lift the rock, go south and north. Go back to Mabe Village and talk to the woman outside her house: say "yes" and head to Martha's Bay, then enter the water. Swim to the center of the bay, where you will see the head of a giant fish emerge from the water, surrounded by rocks. Press "B" to dive into the southwest corner of the rock formation. The diagram below explains where you will need to dive.

X: large rocks
a: small rocks
O: the point where you have to dive

Dive down to access an underwater cave, which you will have to walk through. Resurface and enter the giant fish head.

Dungeon 5 - Catfish's Maw

This dungeon is a little bigger than the others you have faced so far, but nothing impassable.
From the starting point go left, you will enter a room with four statues: kill all the enemies and keep this in mind.
Go left and go down the stairs. Go through the cave and, when you get back to the surface, kill the monsters and cut the grass.
Push the two blocks up to get a perfect square. Take the key and go back to the room with the four statues: go through the closed door and go north, where you have to defeat the mini boss. Check the chest in the next room and go north once more.
Remove the block and go left, then up two screens, here take out the enemies. Go back to where you pushed the block and push it again, then go north. Go back immediately, settle on the switch, push the block and go to the room to the east, where you will find your friend. Get rid of it and go back one room, where you will have to push the block again. Go north twice, then go left. Kill the monsters, then head up and get rid of your friend again. Now go back to the beginning of the dungeon, in the room with the four statues. Go left and go down the stairs. After resurfacing go left and kill the monster once and for all.
Take the item and return to the room with the four statues. Go north, left and north. Go left and use your new item. Go left and use the item again to open the chest. Go right twice and go down one room. Go right and up as far as you can, then go right and up two rooms. Continue through the rest of the dungeon following the path and pushing blocks when they block your path. Face the boss that hides behind the last door and defeat him, then go north and complete the dungeon.

Chapter 6

When you exit the dungeon, dive into the southwest area (where you emerged earlier).
Swim through the cave and resurface. Swim to the southeast part of the bay, where you will have to dive and swim under the bridge. Talk to the person you see there and say "okay". Go back and swim to the area above the last dungeon: talk to the girl who is there and choose the answer "give".

If you haven't already, go to Mabe Village and buy the bow from the Tool Shop. After purchasing it, go back to where you had to cross the river to get to the Animal Village and head northeast. When you reach the end of the island, go south and pass the short labyrinth, then enter the building you will find a little further on. Kill the monster in the next room and pick up the item it leaves behind.
Proceed to the next room and use some magic dust on the unlit candles.
Exit the crypt and go back into the maze. When you exit, go west until you can re-dive into the water, swim and reach the platform.
Touch the monster on the left and go down the stairs that he will reveal to you. Go through the cave, go northwest and touch the face. Go back and enter the new dungeon.

Dungeon 6 - Face Shrine

From the starting point, go west, then north, until you find a switch, a statue of a face and a monster.
Drop a bomb near the switch and settle down near the top left exit.
After the explosion the block will go up, so go north and take the switch you found under the top left bottle. Go left, then north twice. Go north, then east and flip the switch. Follow the path until you come across a large room. Kill the monsters inside and get the key. Go back to the room with the switch under the bottle and this time take a seat near the top right exit when the bomb explodes and the block moves up. Then go up one room.

Bomb the eastern wall, go through the hole and kill all the monsters. Go down the stairs and make your way into the cave. When you emerge, kill the monsters and go north to a room, where you will need to open a chest. Throw away the statues and proceed, returning to the beginning of the dungeon. Go east twice and face the enemy attack. Advance through the various sections of the dungeon facing monsters and remembering to open chests, which generally contain very useful items.
When you reach the big doors enter them, defeat the boss and collect the heart fragment. Then go north to claim your reward!

Chapter 7

Go south and jump into the water. Swim to the left, then exit the water. Go west, south and east to where you can cross the river. Head south again, then cross the water using the hookshot, then follow the path. Press "A" in front of the statue and go down the stairs. Go to the second room and get the item.

Go to Ukuku Prairie, which is east of Mabe Village.

You can get there by using the portals or by walking there. Equip both boots and feather, run and jump over the hole, then read the sign. Follow the arrow and reach a cave. Go down the stairs and walk towards the center. Select "pay". Exit and go to Mabe Village.

Go to the statue in the center of the village and push it. Go down the stairs, settle down next to the bird and play the song you just learned. Exit the cave and go to the house where the two kids are playing with the ball. Enter the house and read the book located in the lower right corner. Write down the arrows code, you will need it later in the game. Exit the house and take the eastern exit of the village, then proceed north. Enter the cave, then take the easternmost exit. Enter the water and keep going east. As the water gets deeper, go up the large stairs you see. Finally go west and enter the other cave. In the second room, push the blocks and go north. Use the Power Bracelet to get the rooster and go west. At this point, exit the cave again.

Go east and go down the grand staircase, at the bottom go east again. Keep moving in this direction and enter the cave. Go through it completely and repeat the operation with all the caves you will encounter in sequence. Once you are done with the caves, go west. Lift the blocks and stand in front of the strangest blocks, then enter the dungeon.

Chapter 8

When you regain control of the character, return to the cave where you found the key to the last dungeon. Go left and use the hookshot to go to the other side. Go left, cut the grass and go down the stairs. Go through the cave and exit. After that continue to follow the road upwards. Once at the top, head west. At the bottom drop a bomb against the cracked wall and enter the cave, then go north. Use the new shield to stop the flames, and go down the stairs to the left. Keep following the road until you see a large statue. Play the same song you played to the bird and defeat the monster, then enter the cave.

Dungeon 8 - Turtle Rock

From the starting point, head north twice, then head right. You will find yourself in a room full of lava. Remember this room, you will have to come back later. Go around that kind of cake and move it using the d-pad. This time push it north and left at the bottom. Go north and go down the stairs. Go through the cave, kill the monsters in the new room and go north. Defeat the monster and go and west, making the cake move in this direction, following the alphabetical order shown below, the X is the beginning, the W the end.

|i|h|g|_|_|_|_|_|
| j | k | f | e | _ | _ | _ | _ |
|_|l|m|d|c|_|_|_|
|_|_|n|o|b|a|X|_|
|_|_|_|p|q|t|u|_|
|_|_|_|_|r|s|v|w|
| _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ |

If you have done everything correctly, a key will appear. Take it and go back one room. Go up and go down the stairs. Go through the cave and, once on the surface, go north, then west.

Kill the monster, then go left, kill the monsters and go north. Kill the monster and go left: push the cake and it will go up. When it reaches the wall, push it down. Go south, then west and defeat the monster. Go north and get rid of the other monster.
Take the key and go back to the start.

Go once more to the room with the cake and wash it. Push it east. You will need to go east between the one-eyed statue and the lower block on the right hand side. Once you have gone east, you will find yourself in a room with stairs going down. Bomb the right wall and enter the hole, flip the switch and go back. Go south via the small stairs and go down, then go west twice.

Continue to the dungeon, go east and open the block, then go east again (after walking the short flight of stairs of course) and use the hookshot to get to the other side. Open the block and go down the stairs. Go through the whole cave and exit. Once outside, go down. Defeat the enemy and go north. Open the chest, then go back to the beginning, using the portal that is nearby.

Go to the room with the flying monster (the room is the one above the entrance). Kill the monster and go left. Go north, kill the monster and go left. Go north and light both candles with your new item. Open the chest, then go back to the start and back to the room with the cake and lava. Push the block and place it in front of the stairs, which you will have to go down. Make your way into the cave and, once out, enter the locked door. Defeat the enemies and go north. Push the block until it goes all the way into the hole. If you find yourself in trouble, use the diagram below. The X indicates the starting point and the! indicates the point of arrival. The # indicates the two candles.

| _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ | _ |
|_|c|d|e|f|g|h|_|
|_|b|#|n|m|#|i|_|
| _ | a | p | o | l | k | j | _ |
|_|X|q|t|u|x|y|_|
|_|_|r|s|v|w|z|!|

If you have done everything correctly, a chest will appear. Open it and go back to the beginning. Go to the room with the cake and the lava and go east, go down the stairs and through the cave. Once you exit the cave, go north and open the large door. Defeat the boss behind it and go north to get your reward.

Chapter 9

When you exit go east and go down. Go south twice, then east. Keep going north and east until you reach some stairs. Go north twice and play the song Marin taught you. Enter the hole and go north twice. Now you will have to use the code of the arrows that you have previously pinned, otherwise you will certainly get lost. The code is random every time, so it's very important that you write it down. Then go down the hole and defeat the boss.
