Game objectives

  • Emulator used: VBA23
  • Abuses glitches
  • (Very) Minor luck mainipulation
  • Colors a dinosaur the world game


In the previous run, Link had to take a detour to Ganon's Castle to make use of the stairs to go OoB. Now, Link skips that and completes his quest to save Zelda obtain Four Swords. This run takes on a different route to the Palace of Four Swords and ends up 3382 + 52 frames faster. Also, the ending has been changed to fix some desync issues that sometimes occurred in the previous run.

Other Comments

This run might be improveable with better luck (at the gaurd) and possibly ending the battle even earlier.

Thanks to the efforts of Tompa, the guards have been altered and the battle ended even sooner.

Special Thanks

  • Tompa - For his work on manipulation, optimizations and route finding/planning.
  • Greenalink - His discovery of the "Cursed Link" glitch
  • RexZemenheart - For discovering it's possible to get to the Palace of Four Swords.
