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.

    Did you notice something? Did you notice those Buzzblobs (Those green things that you can’t hit with the sword or you’ll get hit instead) look a lot like the Pokemon called Wobuffet? The Bari’s (The elecric balls) look like the Pokemon called Voltorb? And the Bow Wows (The black things on leashes) look a lot like Chain Chomps from the Super Mario series)?

  19. where to get the flute

  20. What do i do after i get the mirror?

  21. Sushi man and Video game lover, heres my advice. To clear east palace, If you are wondering how to find the big key, There is one room with 4 spinners surrounding a pot. Beat all the enemies in that room and the spinners will go around the room. Lift the pot they used to be around to find a switch. Hit that switch to find a chest that contains the big key. If you have trouble with the boss, use the arrows to hit 5 of the 6 armos knights. The remaining one will turn red and try to crush you. Hit this one with the sword. As for you, Video game lover, do you mean the second palace in general, or the second dark palace? If you mean the second palace in general, translate the tablet in front of you with the book of mudora. If you mean dark world, this gets complicated. You know the place with the 4th piece of heart? Head there. Teleport to the Light World and drain the water from the lake. This makes the Palace fill with water. then teleport back And enter that building again. That building is the swamp palace.
