I, Introduction

A, Review
First of all, let's make sure we all realize this: BS Zelda was a 16-bit remake of The Legend of Zelda, which was released on the NES in the mid-80's. BS Zelda was only available in 1995 in Japan via a satellite system that connected to the Super NES. The game was broadcasted on Sundays from around 6 to 7, along with a TV show which gave info on the game and other Nintendo related things. Unfortunately, players were only given a set number of hours to play, over the course of four weeks (which is why the game stops after 57 minutes). Because this game was used to launch the BS-X system, Link (the original lead character) has been replaced by the mascots for the BS system (that is, unless you use a patch to play as him).
The game was broadcasted twice, Map 1 and Map 2. Map 2 can be compared with LoZ Second Quest, Nes, which has different dungeons and overworld but same gameplay.


Now writing about the first The Legend of Zelda is no easy task. What can you say about a game that was for many people (myself included) a life changing experience? Trying to reduce into words that sort of impact is pointless. It's like describing love, you can't, you have to feel it at least once to understand. So we shall let the facts do the talking and suffice saying that BS Zelda is indeed a very good remake.

Anyway, for those who never played the original Zelda, here's a simple description of the gameplay (doesn't really make justice to it, but as said above, no description would). The game is divided in two settings: the overworld and the underworld. Starting out in the overworld, you are to explore a fantastic land of forests, rivers and mountains (believe me it was a truly enchanting journey) with an important task find the underworld dungeons and recover the almighty relic within, the Triforce. Only then, you would be allowed in the final dungeon to save the Princess Zelda from the evil Ganon. Both settings are filled with hostile creatures(so many of them for a game this old!) that constantly try to put an end to your quest. But you can fight back with an enchanted sword capable of shooting beams of light and a large number of items like a boomerang, a bow, bombs etc. The latter play an even more important role in opening hidden passages for you so that you can progress through the dungeons or find helpful secrets. And that's only one of the riddles the hero of this game is confronted with.
The world of Zelda proved to be so deep and elaborate that for many people it was, for the first time, like really being drawn into a different world and the adventure of a lifetime.
As I said, BS Zelda is a great remake, even though this word is used loosely since the game has all new maps in which to live your adventure; it enanches sound and graphic to the SNES quality and introduces some new features like night time. It had a major downside because it originally had a time limit, but most people will probably patch the game to "loop" so let's ignore that. Actual downsides from the original NES game are that BS Zelda has a smaller overworld and doesn't have a final dungeon before the last boss (and it's missing a couple enemies too), resulting in a shorter game, but this was due to the limitations of the Satellaview so we'll have to tollerate it.
Speaking of loop though, one of the new features is a timer and, along with it, some timed events that can be very interesting and useful. they include simple things like having all enemies on screen vanish to more interesting ones like obstacles that are removed after a certain time. The latter inevitably make the game more linear, like the later episodes in the series. To some people this may be a serious change for the worse, but personally I don't mind, in fact I think the game is actually made more enjoyable by knowing in what area of the map the next dungeon should be. I mean, there's still plenty of exploring with all the secrets in this game and you still have less knowledge than in ALttP where the dungeons were marked on the map (they are in this one too, but only those of previous weeks, which was a necessity because you had little time to catch up). Of course the game being not emulated perfectly shows you the location of the first four dungeons right away (because unpatched it plays as week 3) but I believe that shouldn't influence this review.

I could now give votes to the various aspects of this game, but by now you should know how much I love this game and that this would only result in a series of nines.So instead I'll just say this: BS The Legend of Zelda was the main reason I originally bought a PC (talk about killer application) and I still play it more than many new games of today.


A brief history of this game on the net:

The only known dump was made by YuYu (I believe that's his handle). The game was dumped using a console copier called the Super UFO Pro Drive VII, which could copy games to disk off the Super Famicom Bulletin Service Satellite System. (thanks to NoaSQUARE@aol.com for the info.). This dump would only work as week 3 with most emulators.
Enter the BS Zelda homepage and Roto, he has hacked the game so we can play from week 1 to week 4. The whirlpool and the statues not coming to life were blockades meant to be removed in later weeks.
Here's how:
Week 1: Level 1-2 playable; the Candle isn't in the shop so you can't burn your way into the forest.
Week 2: Level 3-4 playable; a whirlpool prevents you from reaching the eastern part of Death Mountain.
Week 3: Level 5-6 playable; the statues don't come to life, making it impossible to pass into the western Death Mountain.
Week 4: Level 7-8 playable and the last boss appears near the end of your hour of play.

With the above fixed, the game can now (for the most part) be played the way it was supposed to be. It has been our mission to promote this game as well as its sibling (Kodai no Sekiban) and strive to improve their patches (with the addition of translations, for example) in the hope that all Zelda fans may enjoy these lost games.
In accord with this mission, we present to you a complete guide for the game.

B, Story
BS Zelda is a remake of The Legend of Zelda originally published on the NES. Therefore the two games have the same background story. There is however one difference: the starring character. To this generation of players, that grew into Zelda fans with games like Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker, seeing the main character with a baseball cap may be perfectly normal, but back in the days of A Link to the Past, this was quite shocking. We have an explanation for this from the other BS Zelda game, Kodai No Sekiban that had the same starring character(s) and explained that this was a youth from another world (presumably ours, judging by the baseball cap). It seems reasonable to assume that this was the case with the first BS Zelda too, but being it the remake of a classic Zelda game rather than an all new game in which it is a plot point for the hero to come from another dimension, this is obviously something that should be ignored when trying to fit this game's story (and thus that of LoZ) among the other episodes in the series. So there you have it: this game has the very same story of LoZ and you can decide for yourself if the starring character is still Link whose sprite was replaced with the BS-X mascotte (boy or girl), or if it is a youth from far away, or from our world even, living the adventure that was supposed to be of Link (or for the less strict and more imaginative, a youth from our world helping out Link).

And now, especially for those that did not play the original Zelda, here is the story extracted from the game's manual and made more vague concerning the identity of the hero:

A long, long time ago the World was in an age of Chaos. In the middle of this chaos, in a little kingdom in the land of Hyrule, a legend was being handed down from generation to generation, the legend of the "Triforce"; golden triangles possessing mystical powers.

One day, an evil army attacked this peaceful little kingdom and stole the Triceforce of Power. This army was led by Ganon, the powerful Prince of Darkness who sought to plunge the World into fear and darkness under his rule. Fearing his wicked rule, Zelda, the princess of this kingdom, split up the Triforce of Wisdom into eight fragments and hid them throughout the realm to save the last remaining Triforce from the cluthes of the evil Ganon. At the same time, she commanded her most trustworthy nursemaid, Impa, to secretly escape into the land and go find somebody with enough courage to destroy the evil Ganon. Upon hearing this, Ganon grew angry, imprisoned the princess, and sent out a party in search of Impa.

Braving forests and mountains, Impa fled for her life from her pursuers. As she reached the very limit of her energy she found herself surrounded by Ganon's evil henchmen. Cornered! What could she do? ... But wait!

All was not lost. A youth appeared and skillfully drove off Ganon's henchmen, saving Impa from a fate worse than death. This youth had come to Hyrule from far, far away and thus came across Impa and Ganon's henchmen. Impa recounted the whole story of the princess Zelda and the evil Ganon. Burning with a sense of justice, the young one resolved to save Zelda, but Ganon was a powerful opponent. He held the Triforce of Power. And so, in order to fight off Ganon, the scattered eight fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom had to be brought together to rebuild the mystical Triangle.

If this couldn't be done, there would be no chance for the youth to fight all the way into Death Mountain where Gannon lived. Can this traveler really destroy Ganon and save the Princess Zelda? Only your skill can answer that question. Good luck. Use the Triforce wisely.




II, Controls

Similarly to what happened with Mario All Stars, the controls remained similar to the ones of the NES game. Of course the SNES controller has more buttons than the NES one and the game took advantage of this.
Therefore:

Digital Pad: Moves the hero in all four directions (not diagonals). Also moves the cursor in the subscreen.
A and Y buttons: Use your sword (input letters in Dreamer Nom's patch).
B button: Uses the chosen item.
Start and X buttons: The Start button starts the game and confirms decisions. Both buttons switch between main and subscreen.
L and R buttons: Cycles through your items.
Select button: Selects game files and shows everything you should achieve during the current week.




III, General Tips

1, You can bomb a wall or burn a tree in almost every screen. With a few exceptions, each overworld screen has no more than one entrance to caves/dungeons.
2, The Boomerang is your friend. Especially against Like Likes.
3, Get used to facing projectiles and block them with the shield. It helps. But be sure you have the proper shield.
4, Clear dungeon rooms of all enemies, sometimes an item may appear when the are gone. Also you will only be allowed to puch blocks that trigger secrets after dispathing them.
5, Some very tough enemies can be taken down swiftly with bombs. But you had better keep a few for strict necessisties.
6, If the enemy doesn't flash when hit, you may need to use another weapon or approach.
7, The Blue Ring is a life saver. try to find and buy it as soon as you can (but boy, it's really expensive!).
8, If you think you are missing something, hit the select button to see what you can get in the current week.
9, If you clear a screen with tough enemies, try to do everything you need past that screen right away, so that you don't have to return there again, because enemies respawn immediately in this game.
10, Remember where you find bombs laying on the ground. There are places when you can get them whenever you drop by.
11, You don't need to buy any keys. Do it only if you get hopelessly stuck.
12, Flute Magic: If you play the flute while facing up or right you'll be brought one level forward, down or left will take you backwards.
13, The Magic Wand is pretty strong in this game. Rely on it if you don't have the Magic Sword or can't shoot with it.
14, Buying the Blue Medicine twice gives you a Red Medicine. Normally this would cost more than a direct purchase, but if you can find someone that sells only Blue Medicine at very cheap prices...
15, You can hit the gravestone in E6, the tree in D4 or the stone in B5 (see the map at the start of the walkthrough) with the boomerang to make a fairy appear every time.





IV, Emulation Hints

A, Emulator
The best emulators to play this game are ZSNES and SNES9X (but only the patched game). Nlke will also work, and with an unpatched rom will make you play as the girl.
In any case, most of this section was written with ZSNES in mind.

B, FAQ
1, Q: How do I insert action replay codes in ZSNES? - A: Simply click "cheat" in the Zsnes menu and insert the code.
2, Q: Why am I not able to see the clues the old men normally give you? - A: You'll have to change the video mode at config/video in the Zsnes gui. Try which mode works on your computer. Or try hitting "2" on the keyboard in ZSNES.
3, Q: You said there's sound in the game now, but I can't hear anything! Why? - A: Enable the sound in Zsnes gui config/sound (default is off).

C, Cheating by emulation
1, A not really dishonorable cheat would be to accelerate the time rather than waiting, in situations where you don't have a choice (such as working all the way to level6 before the entrance can be accessed). In ZSNES you can do this by pressing the keys "~" or "".
2, You can't pause the timer by just pressing start. If you wish to do that, you have to pause emulation (just press esc in ZSNES).
3, On the other hand, a rather dishonorable cheat would be using Save States to win the Money Making Game (well save states can be abused in many other ways, but this one stands out for this game).

D, Glitches
1, Ganon can be fought with only 6 Triforce parts (or none with hacked save states). There's no need to get through Level 7 and 8 - just wait until it is 3:45... but don't forget the Silver Arrow... cheater :p
2, The game doesn't save the subscreen maps of dungeons that are made as you walk through them.
3, Red dots marking dungeons on the world map appear too early.
4, Use a PAR code for the red medcine BEFORE you have taken the letter and you will never run out!





This walkthrough is made for the patched rom with Roto's BS-Zelda complete patch!


V, Walkthrough

This is a reasonably straightforward walkthrough from the beginning to the end of the game.




Week 1: Overworld (between Start - Level 1)
Map:
Detailed Overworld Map
Item: Wooden Sword -

Click to see a 'Detailed Overworld Map'


Upon starting, on the first screen, you'll walk immediately into a cave. There collect the Wooden Sword (F1). Once you leave the cave, go one screen up, then one left. There is a Shop (E2), which offers a Magic Shield, a Wooden Arrow, and Bombs. From there, go one screen left, one up (ignoring the short bridge), one right, and finally one up. You'll now be on a screen with a long bridge going left. Also, if you look at map on the top left corner of the screen, you (marked in green) will be right next to a red dot on the map (Level 1). Cross the bridge and enter the tree to access Level 1 (E4).






Level 1
Map: Detailed Level 1 Map
Item: Bow -
Boss: Aquamentus -

Click to see a 'Detailed Level 1 Map'


Go one screen left to pick up the Compass (C1), which will display on the map where the boss is. Kill all the bats (Keeses) to unlock the door on the left, then enter it. One of the Stalfos in this room has a Key (B2) (not hard to spot), kill him to get it. Kill all the Stalfos to unlock the door on the left. Inside you will find an Old Man (A1) which tells you that "Arrows cost money to use". Go back to the entrance, then one screen up. Kill all the snakes (Ropes) in this room for a Key (D2). Unlock the door up, go through, and unlock the next door up again. Go up and collect the Map (D4), then kill all the bats to open the door on the left. In this room, kill all dropletts (Gels) to open the door on the left and enter. Avoid the Floortraps by stepping between them (thus triggering them) stepping back and wait until they clash and start retreating to their original position before going ahead. Push the farest left block up, go down the stairs collect the Bow (B4), and return to the room with the Gels (C4). From here go one screen up, kill the Red Goriyas (watch out for their boomerangs), get the Key (C5) and continue left. Kill all Gels and move the block in the middle to unlock the door to the left. Enter, and continue your way up. Kill the Stalfos with the Key (A6) and go two screens up. Kill the Goriyas to get some bombs (needed to reveal the Level 2 entrance) and walk right. Be careful with the Wallmasters in this room (they only appear if you are by the wall and if they touch you, they'll take you back to the entrance), take the Key (B8) and go right again to get to the dungeon boss, Aquamentus. Avoid his fireballs (try getting in between them) and either shoot your sword at him or stab away at his head. This will get you a Heart Container (C8) and one room right is the first Piece of the Triforce (D8).


Overworld (between Level 1 - 2)
Item: Heart Container - , Letter -

Now if you don't want to lose a heart container, you have to wait untill the timer reaches 00:20. If you're up to it, go right, down, right, down, right, wait there and you'll get the second Heart Container (H2) as it washes ashore on the beach. Be careful, it's only available from the time 00:20 - 00:27!!
Now go left, up, right. You'll see a cave, go in and collect the Letter (H3), which you'll want to deliver to the old woman later on. From there, go up 2, and left one. Bomb the center of the big rock, and enter Level 2 (G5).






Level 2
Map: Detailed Level 2 Map
Item: Wooden Boomerang -
Boss: Dodongo -

Click to see a 'Detailed Level 2 Map'


This level too is a no-brainer, you should be in and out in 5 minutes, tops. Go up one room, kill all the red Goriyas, and collect the Wooden Boomerang (B2). Go up to get the Compass (B3), and up. Kill the Stalfos to get a Key (B4), unlock the door up and enter the room. You're now in a room full of snakes. Kill them all to unlock the door left, go in and grab the Map (A5), then kill the blobs (Zols) to get out. Go one right, collect the Bombs (C5) (Tip: these bombs will be here everytime you re-enter this room), bomb the upper wall (in the middle as it always is inside dungeons), go in get some more bombs with your boomerang, then left. Take the Key (B6) but watch out for the Wallmasters. Bomb up in here for an Old Man (B7) who says "Dodongo dislikes smoke" then unlock the door in the previous room, go left and enter the Stairs (A6). You'll be face-to face with Dodongo. Put bombs in his path to make him swallow them, and collect your Heart Container (D1) and Triforce Piece (D2). Level over.
If you play with the restoration patch you should have a little time left, so you can buy the bow, search for secrets and so on


Week 2: Overworld (between Level 2 - 3)
Item: Blue Candle - , Magic Shield - , Blue Ring - , Heart Container -

The timer will now be set to 1:00 (or 1:07 with the restoration patch) that means that you are in week 2 now, that means the bombs in the shop are replaced with the Blue Candle. Get it by going back to the Shop (E2) and enter the cave. Primarily, you really need to get the Blue Candle (60 rupees). You could get the Magic Shield (130 rupees), too but don't if you are not into rupee stocking because you'll soon wish to have at least 250 (and the shield can be found at a cheaper price after level4). If you don't have enough money then you can spend a lot of time slaughtering enemies or you can go (from the shop) one screen left, up (ignoring the bridge for now) and right (E3). Burn with the candle the eighth tree to reaveal a moblin who offers 100 rupees. You can also bomb the center wall one screen to the right from the shop to play the Rupee Game (F2), which can get you tons of money quick. For more, see this guide's section about secret caves. If you manage to save 250 rupees or more, you'll be able to buy the Blue Ring soon.
>From the shop go one screen left, cross the bridge and use the candle to burn away the 3 trees. If you do have 250 rupees, go left, up, right, up, left, left and enter the cave for the Blue Ring (B4) which halves damage dealt to you. If you have even more money you can go right and down now, burn the tree in the corner to find an Old Woman (C3). Show her your letter and buy the Red (68 rupees) or Blue Medicine (40 rupees). Both will restore your health but the red one works twice
Go back to where the bridge is (D2), go left, left again, down and along the LEFT side up again. There are two trees, about two tiles apart from one another. Use your candle on the left, and you'll have your pick of either Red Medicine or an extra Heart Container (B2). Take the Heart Container, you'll need every last one you can get. Go down again. Do you see the two trees at the bottom? Burn the left one and meet an old man who tells "go north, west, south, west in the Lost woods" these are indications to get past the lost woods, a screen that repeats itself in all but one direction. Now, if you are very patient and skilled with your control pad (to challenge the Tornadoes), you can use these indications you've just been given to go through the lost woods and get the White Sword early (be sure to have 5 Heart Containers), see "Overworld (between Level 3 - 4)" to find out how.
Otherwise, just go one screen right from the helpful old man and enter Level 3 (C1).






Level 3
Map:
Detailed Level 3 Map
Item: Raft - , Magic Boomerang -
Boss: Manhandla -

Click to see a 'Detailed Level 3 Map'


One quick rule to this level: kill everything you meet. A lot of enemies have keys in here, or open locked doors. Go up one room and get the Key (A2), then right, down (here you will always find Bombs (B2) that can be collected with the Magic Boomerang), right, collect the 35-40 rupees, then bomb the upper wall. Go in and collect the Key (C2), then go down, left, up, left, up - kill the Blue Vires to get another Key (A3) - and up again to get the Compass (A4). One more room up you'll find 3 Zols, bomb the upper wall, and go another time up by unlocking the door. For the first time, you will be confrontated by Red Darknuts. They can only be hit on the sides and from behind their, and they change direction suddenly. You can either fight them or just run into the stairs and collect the Raft (A7). Go five rooms down, until you're one room above the entrance. Go right twice, this room oughta look familiar. Go right through the locked door, and collect the Map (D2). Go down one screen and kill the Blue Goriyas. Collect the Magic Boomerang (D1) and go three screens up - kill the Blue Goriyas, move the left block to open the door and go up again. You'll meet an Old Man (D5) who claims that he hears "growling from the next room", which means you have to bomb left. Enter the Stairs (C5). Follow the path two screens to the right to the boss Manhandla. Get your Heart Container (C8) by destroying all of his four "heads", but be careful - he becomes quicker everytime you cut one off. An easy way to beat him, is anticipate his movement and place a bomb so that he is right over it as it explodes. Go right for your third Triforce Piece (D8).


Overworld (between Level 3 - 4)
Item: Medicine - , White Sword -

Go left one screen, then up along the RIGHT side, then right, up, right, up and left. You will see a dock (C4). If you don't have the Blue Ring yet go left and buy one (if you don't have enough money you can try playing the Rupee Game one screen up from the Start Location (F2)). Now wait until the timer hits 1:45. At this time the Tornadoes, which are blocking the way to the White Sword disappear. If you don't want to wait because you are too early then enter Dungeon 4 now and get this sword after this Dungeon (then not only the Tornadoes but also the Lost Woods are vanished. This part is better to play with the restoration patch, because the week is not over directly after D4. To get the White Sword (be sure to have 5 Heart Containers) go to the shop. From the shop (the Blue Ring's one) head down. You are in the Lost Woods now. The Lost Woods' magic and the Tornadoes are gone. Going up twice, you will enter the graveyard. In the middle row, second headstone from the left, push it down to reveal a passage. Go in and collect the White Sword (A6), which is much stronger than your old one.
If you don't have a Medicine yet, go from the dock one screen down and burn the tree in the corner, show the letter to the old woman and buy the Red Medicine (C3). Walk onto the dock (C4) now, and you'll be whisked away with your raft to the entrance of Level 4 (C5).






Level 4
Map: Detailed Level 4 Map
Item: Ocarina - , Increased Total of Bombs -
Boss: Digdogger -

Click to see a 'Detailed Level 4 Map'


Run through this one, too. Go left for the Compass (A1) - (you can lighten dark rooms with your Candle), go back to the entrance, up one room and kill every Zol for a Key (B2). Up again, kill everyone for some bombs. Bomb right and go get the Key (C3), then go back, up, and right for the Map (C4). Then back again, and continue up, kill the two Moldorms, unlock and enter the door up. You will find two Bubbles here that can disable your sword for a short while after touching you. Up again, unlock and enter the room to your right. Don't worry about the locked door down yet, instead go up (be careful with the Like-Likes - they'll steal your Magic Shield. Go right to hear an Old Man (D8) saying "There are beings weak to sound". He means Pols Voice (monsters with big ears - play your ocarina whenever you meet one). Go left twice which will be a room with two Darknuts and a staircase. Instead of dealing with them, bomb left, where an old man will let you be able to carry Twelve Bombs (A8) for 50 rupees. Then go left kill those Darknuts for a Key (B8), and go down the stairs for the Ocarina (B8). Go right, down, unlock the door, and continue two rooms down to a room with a staircase (C5). Go down, and you'll come up in a room with Darknuts and Pols Voices, but ignore them and head left for the boss. Play your flute once, then stab the stuffing out of the the mini-eyes that come out. Get your Heart Container (C1) and one room up is your Triforce Piece (C2). Level's over. If you play with the restoration patch you will now have time to look for the White Sword which is easy to get after 1:45.


Week 3: Overworld (between Level 4 - 5)
Item: Wooden Arrow - , Meat -

The time will now be set to 2:00, that means you are in week 3 and there are no Lost Woods / Tornadoes anymore (if you don't have the White Sword yet, get it now)! Use your raft to go down, go left to the Shop (B4) and buy the Wooden Arrow (80 rupees) and the Bait/Food (60 rupees) if you don't have them yet. Now use the flute and goo to the entrance of Level 2 then the screen right of it(H5). Go up to the dock and ride the raft to a new area (in week 3 no Whirlpool will block your way). This cave here will just be a guy with information "Climb the cliff behind the grave soldiers guard" - this is a hint how to get access to Level 5. Go out, two screens left and burn the tree. This is another Rupee Game (F6). Either way, from the game, go one right, and two screens up the stairs to find the cheapest Store (G8) for the Magic Shield. You can pick up the Magic Shield, Dungeon Key, or Meat, for 90, 80, and 60 rupees. Last chance to buy the Meat. Go down, then right, and position yourself above the tombstone. Walk directly up, and you'll pass through the rock to the obscure yet nostalgic entrance to Level 5 (H8).






Level 5
Map:
Detailed Level 5 Map
Item: Stepladder - , Increased Total of Bombs -
Boss: Patra -

Click to see a 'Detailed Level 5 Map'


This one takes a little effort. Go up one, right, right, then bomb down to meet with a Fairy (D1). In the left room you will meet an Old Man (C1) saying "There's a secret with the soldier's statue" (Hint for the Power Bracelet). Right and up again defeat the mummies (Gibdos) so you can move the block. Go through the now open door on the right, get the Key (E2) there and go down for the Map (E1) - move the middle block in this room to get out again. Return to the room one screen up from the entrance, and unlock the door. Go up three times (ignore the key right now). In here a Hungry Man (B5) will say "My stomach grumbles...". Give him the Food, continue up. Push the block up, grab the Compass (B6), and bomb left. Enter and go back, this time pushing the block right, then go up. Kill the much harder and faster Blue Darknuts, then push the block on the left to unlock the door and a new Staircase (B7). Go down the stairs, emerge and bomb the left wall in this room to meet an old man who increases the total Bombs you can carry (D5) for 50 rupees (which should bring you up to 16, not bad!) go left, and one room down. Now kill the 3 Dodongos with your large amount of Bombs, and go down, entering the staircase right away. Pick up the Stepladder (E3) here, and go back to the Stairs (E5) two rooms up. Go down three rooms and grab the Key (B4) using your Stepladder. Now go up twice to the room where you bombed the left wall so you could move the block from that side, go left and up to meet another Old Man (A7) telling you that "The next level is at the beach". Now go down six times, kill the Darknuts so you can move the block and reveal a Staircase (A1) which will take you a couple rooms from the boss. Go two times to the right, move the middle block to unlock the next door, enter, and you are confrontated with the boss Patra. He is quite simple; so much that I think the game glitched his movement pattern. Keep slashing from a safe distance first the small flies then toast him. Get your Heart Container (D8) and the Triforce Piece (E8). Getting too easy, eh? Now get ready to move on to Level 6.


Overworld (between Level 5 - 6)
Item: Two Heart Containers -

Outside the dungeon should be a guy who sells Blue Medicine for only 10 rupees. Buy it twice and you get a red one. Now it's time to get some more Heart Containers:
Again use the flute to reach the entrance of Level 2 (G5), go right, down and use your Stepladder to get the next Heart Container (H4). Now continue your way to the Start Location (F1), go left twice and use your Stepladder to get to a cave with the next Heart Container (D1).
Do you remember the beach where you've found the very first Heart Container? Go there now again and wait until the time is 2:35 and a tile, with an ocarina engraved on it, appears. Play your Ocarina and from the sea rises the entrance to Level 6 (H2) (this is a pretty cool animation). Also note that it will be night soon, Octoroks will then be replaced by Darknuts... be careful.

With all your equipment these dungeons are beginning to seem too easy, eh? Well, this one is no different. Go up 3 rooms and kill all the monsters. Push the left block to open the door on the right. Go in here, then right one more room, bringing you to a room with a fairy you can't reach, and a key. Take the Key (C4)and go two rooms left, then go up and fight Moldorm. Go up and bomb the right wall for a Key (B6). Go left again and up. There is a locked door with an unfriendly guy who was the level 4 boss - Digdogger. Kill him the same way (play your Ocarina and hack 'em), then go one screen right and pick up the Map (B7). Bomb up for an Old Man (B8) saying "Aim at the eye of Ghoma" - a hint how to defeat the dungeon boss Ghoma. Go down two screens from him, and pick up the Bombs (B6). Now keep walking down against the middle of the wall and you'll pass through it, entering a hidden room with a staircase. Get in there and pick up the Magic Wand (B5). Now start heading all the way back toward the entrance. Once you are two room above the start, unlock the door right, go inside, pick up the Compass (B3), and bomb the right wall. Go inside, and you have two choices: down or up. Up is that Fairy (C4) you couldn't reach before, go there if you need it. Down will put you in a room with snakes, spike traps, a staircase and a passage down. Go down first, pick up the Key (C1) in there, then go back and down the Stairs (C2). Kill the mummies (Gibdos), and ready your bow and arrows. Unlock the door, go inside, and put an arrow in the eye of the boss, Ghoma, while it's open. Get your Heart Container (C6) and your Triforce Piece (C7). You're finished with another Level.


Week 4: Overworld (between Level 6 - 7)
Item: Heart Container - , Power Bracelet -

You are now in week 4. If the timer ever reaches 3:25 immediately get on the overworld and follow the instructions in the next Overworld (between Level 7 - 8). But for now, from the entrance Level 2 (get there with the flute) (G5) go left three screens (use your stepladder to get over the small river), up, left. Bomb the wall (top left) to reveal a secret cave with the last Heart Container (C6). Now wait until it is 3:08 - the Armos will come to life. Go left, another screen up, bringing you to a group of statues. Touch the second from right in the top row to find the Power Bracelet (B7) (if you aren't using Roto's patch you'll have to cheat for it). Go right one screen and with your Power Bracelet you can move the stone in the middle to access the stairs. Walk them up, three screens to the right, one down and you are at the entrance of Level 7 (F7).

Immediately go right, ignore the Darknuts, grab the Key (E1) and leave. Go up, three times to the left (grab the Key (A2)), up again, kill the Darknuts for some Bombs, then bomb the right wall. Go inside, pick up the 40 rupees, go right, pick up another 40 rupees and a Key (C3). Go up, and once again collect 40 rupees. Go down, twice to the left, down, and twice to the right. Unlock the door down and head that way. Go into the Stairs (1) (C1). >From the exit, go up, kill the two Patras and bomb the left wall. Enter, go left for a Fairy (E3), go up and bomb the right wall. Grab the Key (F4), kill the bats, go through the door, push the block right and go up, then left. Bomb down, enter the stairs, and get the Red Candle (F4). Make your way back: up, right, and three screens down to the Stairs (1) (G2) and take them. When coming back from those stairs, go up, right twice, meet another Old Man (E2) who will say "If you intend to fight Ganon find the Silver Arrow". Go right again, pick up the Compass (F2), and then go back left twice. Go as far up (four times) as you can, collect the Map (D6), kill the Blue Darknuts, go down, bomb the left wall, go in and get the Key (C5). Go up for another Old Man (C6) and his message "The Triforce has to be complete to defeat Ganon", go down unlock the door left, and enter. Grab the Key (B5). Up leads to a Fairy (B6), down will lock you in a room with Gibdos. Kill them all and push the block on the left. This will open the passage you came from, a passage left, and a Staircase (3). DO NOT go into the Staircase! (3) It's a trick that'll send you way off course. Instead, go one left, then up. Kill the Manhandla, then push the block on the left. Go down the Stairs (2) (A5), then go up one, and fight the boss. This Aquamentus is stronger than that of Level 1 and changes his color as you damage him. When he's blue he will shoot faster, and upon becoming red one shoots more unblockable(even with the Magic Shield) fireballs at the same time... Nevertheless he is rather easy. Get the Heart Container (E6) and the Triforce Piece (F6) and you're done!


Overworld (between Level 7 - 8)
Item: Red Ring - , Magic Sword -

Now you'll have to be quick to get the Magic Sword and the Red Ring:
they are only available between 3:25 and 3:35! Quickly get into the woods (use the flute and go to level 3) and to the place with the 2 statues (just at the entrance, left of the bridge); below the left one is the Red Ring (C2). After this (use the flute to) go to the entrance Level 2 (G5), head left over the river, up, left (you see a waterfall), and up. Go into the cave and you'll get the Magic Sword (E7) (for this sword you won't need a special number of Heart Containers because it is Time Related). From the place you've found the Power Bracelet (B7) go right, up and left (or you can use the flute to reach Level 7 and go all the way left) and see something which may look familiar to Zelda fans. It's Spectacle Rock, and also the entrance to Level 8 (B8). You just have to bomb the left rock.






Level 8

Item: Book of Magic - , Silver Arrows -
Boss: Blue Ghomas -

In the first room move the block in the middle and to the right to make a staircase appear and get the Silver Arrow (C1). Go up and kill the 2 Zols for a Key (C2). Bomb right, go in and collect the Magic Book (D2). If you bomb up you find a shortcut to Dodongo. If you choose to go the normal way, go left twice and then up. Welcome to the dark room with the Compass (B3). Even using the candle, you can't see the path through this room, you have to stumble and fel your way through it. You can bomb left and meet a Fairy (A3), or go right. In here you can bomb up for a shortcut through here, or follow the path right. If you choose right, fight Dodongo (bomb the bottom wall in this room if you forgot the Book of Magic). Unlock the door to the right to find an Old Man (E3) telling you the important tip "Use the sword to stop Ganon, then shoot an Arrow". Go back left and up to get the Map (D4) by pushing the block on the second row to the left. Go up, left, down, left, and up. Kill Patra, move the block to find the Stairs (B5). Take them, and simly follow the path up twice, meet the Old Man (D8) telling you "The ones next door can show you to the Arrow" - which means the Wallmasters will bring you to the entrance where you found the Silver Arrow. Go left, down, kill the three Dodongos, continue down kill the color shifting Aquamentus, continue left and defeat another color shifting Aquamentus. Go up to the actual two bosses - the Blue Ghomas. Beat them, by shooting two Silver Arrows in each eye, get the Heart Container (B7) and the last Triforce Piece (B8).

Item: Triforce of Power -
Boss: Ganon -

Click to see a 'Detailed Final Area Map'


You see in an animation Ganon grabbing the old man and breaking the wall. Follow him two rooms up to begin your last battle. Ganon will immediately turn invisible, to beat him swing your sword where you believe he may currently be standing (you should try to anticipate his movements by looking at where his fireballs originate... but don't forget to dodge them). You have to hit the invisible Ganon 4 times. He will then turn blue, shoot a Silver Arrow on him and he is dead. After this take the Triforce of Power from his ashes (A3), go one screen up, rescue Princess Zelda (A4) by putting out the blue fires with your weapons and talk to her. You will automatically walk down to the first room with her. Once you leave the cave the game is over.
Good job, fellow adventurer!


In any case, did you notice how the maps are shaped as letters spelling the word "St. GIGA!"? That was the japanes TV-channel through which this game was playable.

VII, Time Related Events

The game is divided in 4 cycles (weeks): the 1st is from 0:00 to 1:00, the second is from 1:00 to 2:00, the 3rd is from 2:00 to 3:00 and the 4th is from 3:00 to 3:56.
However, the only way to pass at the next one is gaining the required pieces of the Triforce, otherwise the events (if the game is patched properly) will repeat even though the clock moves on (in other words, if you don't take the second piece of Triforce within the first hour, you'll get the ever-shooting sword again at 1:10, just as you did at 0:10) and all permanent events triggered during the week (such as the appearance of Level6's tile or the Armos having woken up) will be reverted to the original condition that they had at the week's start.

B, Time Change
It might get important to change the time, especially if you've missed or want to replay a Time Related Event or if time's running out. If you want to activate a particular time related event you have 2 ways to do so:

1, PAR-Code:
7FFFFFxx - Minute changing: replace xx with the minute time in HEX you want - look above to "Time related Events". You will find the specific time in HEX in the clambs at the end of the sentence of each time related event.

7E7439C0 - Week (hour) changing for Week 2 (2 Triforce Pieces)
7E7439F0 - Week (hour) changing for Week 3 (4 Triforce Pieces
7E7439FC - Week (hour) changing for Week 4 (6 Triforce Pieces)
A cheat back to Week 1 is still missing (e.g. if you've forgotten the time related Heart Container).

If you play with the Restoration patch, use
7FFFF901 - Week (hour) changing for Week 2
7FFFF902 - Week (hour) changing for Week 3
7FFFF903 - Week (hour) changing for Week 4


2, HEX-Editor: Open with a
Hex-editor (AXE v2.0) the Zsnes savegamestate (*.zst), click on "Navigate" and "Goto". After this insert one of the following adresses:
Minute changing: Adress - 00020C12 insert the minute time you want to have in HEX.
Hour changing: Adress - 00020C0C insert the hour time you want to have in HEX (00-FF). (since the week isn't changed, there is really no use for this)

XII, Third Quest

A, Introduction
The Classic Edition is a project by me, Con, which turns BS Zelda into a "real" Legend of Zelda. You will play with classic characters, Link and Zelda, have Triforce Symbols instead of crosses and... play without the BS-X Timer!
I called this project "The Legend of Zelda - Third Quest", because it can be regarded as a third quest to LoZ, Nes without any canon problems.


The core of this project is a time patch by Dreamer_Nom which disables the timer, hides it and forwards the game triforce related. Unfortunately DN left this patch inperfect, before he disappeared: the blue candle was never shop equipment (this problem occured due to Roto's patch) and the whirlpool didn't vanish after Dungeon 4, what happened because of a wrong time setting.
I waited 2 years to find a qualified hacker to solve these problems, but since nobody was able or interested I took the project in my own hands and started from point zero getting through the djungle of ASM hacking... and with the help of Tre and others I am proud and lucky to tell you that my mission is accomplished.


B, Timeplan
The Triforce is an ultimate source of power. Thus, as more pieces you collect as more is your might increased. Nevertheless, some events won't last forever (this is because of the ingame's rom nature).

Beginning:
- nothing happens until you've reached the First Triforce piece

Directly after getting First Triforce Piece:
- the time related Heart Container appears, and it is stabled until the you get the 7th Triforce Piece. Come on, you run directly into it - if you don't grab it, it's your fault!

After getting the Second Triforce Piece
- the Blue Candle is available until the end of the game

After getting the Third Triforce Piece
- the Tornadoes vanish until the end of the game

After getting the Fourth Triforce Piece
- the Lost Woods' magic and Whirlpool disappear until the end
- the Street Vendor appears until you get the 6th Triforce Piece

After getting the Fifth Triforce Piece
- the Flute Podest that opens level 6 appears and stays until the end of the game
- you have Half Shop Prices until you get the 7th Triforce Piece

After getting the Sixth Triforce Piece
- the Amos wake up
- you obtain the Mighty Boomerang keep it until the end of the game
- the Red Ring and the Master Sword are available until the end of the game

After getting the Seventh Triforce Piece
- you get Unlimited Bombs until the end

After getting the Eighth Triforce Piece
- go, kill Ganon !
- you get the Light Sword which always shoots



C, Extra items

Location: (D7) - Push a block for a staircase with the moblin.

D, Final Word
It has been long since 02.11.99 when The BS Zelda Homepage begun its mission. In this time, we have achieved results that surprised ourselves. For this, we have many skillful patchers that we contacted and worked with over the years to thank. People like Roto, Dreamer Nom and Bumpus and others still. Thanks to them, this game is as good as fixed and its sibling Ancient Stone Tablets has significantly improved.
Without them, I am sure, we would not have been able to promote the game as far as we did. Six years ago very few fans even knew what BS Zelda was. Thankfully the situation has changed much since then and we would like to believe that this site, together with those people, played an important role in this change.
Our task is not over yet, there are still flaws to fix in both games, and we hope that more patchers will help us restore these games to the splendor that is rightfully theirs.
