The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

How do you get the hookshot and flute?

Games Guru: First, let me say that this is one of the finest games ever made and that those of you who haven’t played it but like adventure games should get your hands on it.

Now, to point: The hookshot is in a chest in the swamp palace. You are going to need the shovel to get the flute. You go to the northwest part of the clearing and dig.

  22. vin-man says:

    I defeated ganon and got the trifors but how do you get the extra ending?

  23. the essence of the triforce says:

    to flynnflan:
    first, do you have the ice rod? to get it, go to lake hylia (light world) and go to the east part. you will see a cave. bomb 2 link-lenths from the entrence to the left. go inside to get the ice rod. to beat the boss, fire the fire rod on the ice head to stun it. assuming you have the level 4, golden sword, slashing it 3 times will kill it. use the ice rod to do the same to the fire head. the turtle’s shell then explodes. after a second, a section of him will turn yellow. slash at it 3 times to kill him and to free zelda!

      the answer to that is you go to kariko village and go to the statue of the bird and play the flute and every time you play the bird will come

  28. Some dude says:

    To hayhay: Go to the grove of trees near the southwest of the map in the Dark World. On a tree stump there, you will see a small deformed tree. If you talk to the tree, it will tell you about a flute it used to play. Then, use the Magic Mirror. (If you don’t have it, find a world portal and go through it and come back here.) Then use the shovel and dig everywhere until you find the flute. Then, go to the tree in the Dark World again. You have to play the flute for it.

  29. Some dude says:

    To Flinnflan: To help the girl, make sure you’re stocked up on health and healers and arrows. Then, go to the long corridor with the skeletons and a few doors on the left side and a door at the very end. Save, then go through the door at the very end and walk into the light from the window with the girl following you. Then, prepare for a pleasant surprise…
