Does this game have a single player mode?

Yes. You can play through the entire Hyrulean Adventure mode with one to four players. Some modes of play, such as Shadow Battle, are only available for more than one player. This game is a lot of fun for one player, but it gets even better when you play with a few friends.


Do I need a Game Boy Advance to play this game?

If you're playing through the game in single-player mode, you can use either the regular Nintendo GameCube Controller or a Game Boy Advance connected to the Nintendo GameCube with a Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance cable.

What if  I can't figure out how to solve a puzzle?

Perhaps you've overlooked something important. Use the C-Stick to manipulate the camera and check your surroundings. Look for doors or passageways you may have missed. You can also use the Tingle Tuner to get hints through cooperative play.


Does L-Targeting offer anything particularly good?

By L-Targeting an opponent, you can keep it in sight during battle and hit it more precisely. L-Targeting is particularly useful against very quick enemies and flying enemies, and using distance weapons like the Boomerang while L-Targeting ensures much greater accuracy. You can also speak to people from a distance by L-Targeting them first.


My Hearts run out too quickly ... What should I do?

Each time you defeat a dungeon boss, you will gain one more Heart Container. You can also increase your life gauge by searching for Pieces of Heart. Four Pieces of Heart combine to complete one Heart Container.


The enemies are too tough ... How can I defeat them?

All enemies have weaknesses, so if one method of attack doesn't work, try another. Also, every time you get a new item, try using it as much as you can. You will almost always have some item that will help you overcome your foes. You should also watch your enemies carefully-they may drop their weapons. If they do, take advantage of the opportunity.


Why does my Controller rumble inexplicably?

The Controller rumbles when Link is struck or attacked, but it will also rumble when a particular item is trying to tell you something. If the A Button icon changes shape, try pressing the A Button to see what's up. But remember, you won't get rumble hints if your Rumble Feature is turned off.


How can I become a Master Swordsman?

First, go to visit Orca on Outset Island and learn how to use a sword. After that, it just takes practice. Repeatedly tapping the B Button and pressing it in conjunction with the Control Stick will allow you to attack with successive blows. Also, if the A Button changes shape while you're fighting with your sword, immediately press the A Button again to perform a parry move. Only then you will know what it means to be a true Master Swordsman.

Does each player need to have a Game Pak to play Four Swords?

Yes. Each player must have a Game Boy Advance and a Game Pak. Also, you'll need Game Boy Advance Cables to connect the systems. Here's exactly what you'll need for each combination of players.

Two Players: One Game Link Cable, two Game Paks and two GBAs.
Three Players: Two Game Link Cables, three Game Paks and three GBAs.
Four Players: Three Game Link Cables, four Game Paks and four GBAs.


 

The Four Swords dungeons seem different each time I play. How does that work?

Four Swords creates a dungeon level by randomly selecting a dungeon setting -- a vast area with many set challenges -- then dropping a randomly selected new dungeon part into it. As you gain more keys and experience, obstacles become more challenging and levels become more difficult. There are dozens of settings and parts available for each separate area, so you'll always be challenged with new dungeon levels!


 

How does my team reach Vaati?

The first time you play through Four Swords, each player will earn a Silver Key if the team earns 1,000 Rupees in an area. If you earn the Silver Keys from the first three areas, you'll proceed to Vaati's palace.

Once you defeat Vaati once, you can play through the game again in an attempt to earn Gold Keys for your team. However, you can only go for the gold if everyone on your team already has Silver Keys. After your team has earned Silver Keys, you can try to earn Hero's Keys by earning 5,000 Rupees in an area.

If you accomplish this, you'll proceed to Vaati's palace, where the team must beat the palace levels and Vaati four times before finishing off the mage for good!


 

Do my actions in A Link to the Past affect gameplay in Four Swords?

Yes. If you learn a new sword move such as the Beam Sword attack in A Link to the Past, you can use the special move during your adventures in Four Swords. If you beat the final boss in A Link to the Past and Vaati in Four Swords, a new dungeon opens in A Link to the Past. And more!


 

How can I find out how many Pendants/Crystals Link has?

While in the overworld, press the Start Button to access the Items subscreen. The Pendants and Crystals found will be displayed on the right-side of the screen in the middle box. Any Pendants or Crystals which haven't been found yet will be gray in color.


 

I picked up a fish. What do I do with it?

Link can bring it to the man who sold him a Bottle to receive some Rupees, or Link can throw it back into the water for some extra Rupees.


 

An imp cursed me. How do I get rid of the "1/2" symbol above my Magic Meter?

The "curse" actually allows Link to only use half as much magic as before (which is a good thing).


 

Where is a good place to build up Rupees?

Go to the Desert in the Light World. There is a cave under a rock next to the middle-aged man. Move the rock, enter the cave, lift the pots and leave. When you leave, the Rupees in the cave will reset. Here are the basic locations of chests which contain 300 Rupees:

Light World: South of Link's House.
Light World: In the Sanctuary (via the Graveyard).
Dark World: In the Village of Outcasts. Search the top-right house.
Dark World: In the Village of Outcasts. Search the Chicken Coop.
Dark World: South of the Bomb Shop.


 

I entered a room and all the doors are shut. How do I get out?

There are three possible solutions:

1. Destroy all the enemies in the room.
2. Find a floor switch to step on. Pick up either jars or skulls to find a floor switch. or look for a slightly raised section of floor. This may be a switch to open the doors.
3. Pull on a wall lever to open a door.


 

Can I defeat Laser Turrets?

Laser Turrets, which are statues that shoot lasers, cannot be defeated. If Link is stuck in a room with a Laser Turret, Link will need to move a block to open any closed doors.


 

I've lost my sword. Where did it go?

Link probably left it with the Smithy brothers. Enter Kakariko Village after giving the Sword to the brothers for them to have time to forge a new one. For that time, Link will be without a sword.


 

How do I get back to the Dark World?

After Link defeats Agahnim in Hyrule Castle, entering the castle will take Link to the Dark World.


 

What do I do with the treasure chest following me?

Go to the Gossip Shop (Smithy's house in the Dark World) to find a treasure chest. In the Light World, take the chest to the man in the desert to get a Bottle.


 

Why can't I use the Magic Mirror?

If Link tries to use the Magic Mirror in the Dark World and he gets sent back to the Dark World, move to a different location. The game will prevent Link from teleporting into a bush, rock, building, etc, and then getting stuck.


 

How do I get rid of  the  Goriyas (large rats) that mimic my movements?

Aim an Arrow to one side of the Goriya, then move the opposite direction so that the Goriya moves into the path of the Arrow.


 

I beat the game and a number was beneath my name. What is that number for?

It represents the number of times Link was defeated during your quest.

Oracle of Seasons and ages
 

Twisting Nature and Altering the Seasons, Link Faces One of his Most Mind-Bending Quests Ever.

After magically transporting to a vast world called Holodrum, Link witnesses a power-hungry general named Onox summon a mighty storm and kidnap the Oracle of Seasons -- a beautiful dancer named Din.

This Password doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

The Secret and Ring Passwords in the game are based on the name of the file. If you are using a password from someone else's game, that password will not work because the name is different.

Majora's Mask

Link has only 72 hours to find a way to stop its descent.

Screenshots

What's the deal with the three-day time limit?

Majora's Mask features an internal clock that counts down for 72 hours. At the conclusion of 72 hours, the moon will crash into.
