Zelda II: Day 16

Alas after a break I have finished the game.

Worked through the last castle (which was easy enough with patience), killed the boss in the castle and then fought Dark Link to finish the game.

Sigh, another month and again no games completed.

Zelda II: Day 15

Well I would like to say that I overcame the last castle, unfortunately I didn't so nothing to report today I'm afraid. Just a few deaths as I tried to complete it.

Zelda 2: Day 14

It started of a good day as I completed the sixth castle which resulted in me gaining the cross. This then allowed for me to acquire the thunder spell (which uses up half of the magic blocks.

Zelda II: Day 13

Fifth castle completed today which resulted in finding the flute. Off on a walkabout and found another heart container, yay, as well as a hidden town.

Within the town I found another magic container (all of them now found), a spell and a key. Now just need to head into the next castle which hopefully I will complete tomorrow.

One thing that is starting to annoy me at the moment is the constant number of enemies appearing when trying to walk around. I know that games get harder and more enemies appear as you go on but it seems like you can barely walk three steps before running some monsters. Apart from that I'm still enjoying the rest of the game.

Zelda II: Day 12

Fourth castle completed today after having to go on a walkabout. Got to the boss and for the life of me could not defeat it so figured that I needed another spell to take it out, turns out I needed the reflect spell to bounce back it's attacks.

To get this I needed to find a child hidden in a cave which I accidently stumbled on but I did also find a jar of magic to give me another block so it was worth the walk. After that the boss was easy enough and after a little bit more wandering I found the fifth castle. Had a bit of a wander round it collecting keys and will hopefully complete it tomorrow.

Zelda II: Day 11

Decided to sneak some time on the game today and pleased that I did as I managed to find a knight who taught me the stab upwards move.

I also levelled up my attack to level eight but then got confused when I levelled it up again as it stayed at level eight. It turns out that level eight is the maximum for them all and anything after that gains you an extra life. I did not know this until I read it afterwards so was slightly confused at the time I will admit.

Now that I'm all levelled up for attack, magic and life tomorrow will be the completion of the fourth castle. Hopefully.

Zelda II: Day 10

Very busy day on the game today with completing the third castle, levelling up attack to seven and magic to eight, finding the water to get the fire spell and finally finding the boots in the fourth castle.

I didn't complete the fourth castle unfortunately as I died so I'm going to tackle it on Monday when I resume playing the game, still really enjoying it though.

Zelda II: Day 9

Mixed day today as I managed to complete the third castle and level up my life to then forget to save before turning off the DS.

It wasn't all bad though as despite killing the boss it turned out that I had missed collecting the raft so I would have had to venture back in anyway. Having to redo the castle allowed for me to see how many points I could gain which allowed for me to do a bit of grinding to level up the life which now means that when I complete the castle again (hopefully tomorrow) I can level up my attack which is 5000 points.

So not a massive loss really.
