Pieces of Heart
Credits and Taglines

VERSION 1 - 0108 GMT, 7-Jan-2000
  With the customary credits, author's note and copyright info comes a full list 
of where the Pieces of Heart are in Hyrule and the Dark World, what you need to 
reach them and how to get there.

  As I wrote my complete walkthrough for the SNES version of Zelda, I noticed 
that it was very big....171 kilobytes, to be exact.  In the interests of 
conservation I compressed the full walkthrough, but I realise that not all 
people have WinZip.  For the convenience of those without Winzip, the large 
guide has been broken into several smaller uncompressed documents so you can 
still enjoy the information.

  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 

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 

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.

East 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.
