Zelda Game & Watch Story
As stated in the manual, eight dragons are causing havok in Hyrule.
They refuse to live in peace and they plan to conquer the land.
Zelda has been captured in the battle between Hylian and dragon. You,
the lone hero Link, resolve to slay every dragon in the labyrinth in
which they hide. These dragons plan to stop you with the aid of
Stalfos skeletons, goblins and ghosts.
Zelda Game & Watch Controls
This game is very simple, with the up button to climb stairs, down to
use the Water of Life, and the left and right buttons to move in the
desired location one step per push. The big black attack button uses
your sword to attack or block the ghost.

Zelda Game & Watch Chambers
The game begins with Link in a chamber with one Goblin and a Stalfos.
Like with all Goblins, block the spears he throws untill he reaches over
the ledge for you. Attack his head at this point. When the Stalfos under
you begins to raise his sword, you should dodge backwards. I usually fall
back at the last minute, as in later levels you need timing to avoid
Traveling and Battle Strategy:
When the Goblin is defeated, it is always best to go right, as that is where
the tomahawk is. Even though going right requires you to go through more chambers,
it is best as you can rack up more points and life.
Once you have five hearts, you are able to shoot beams from your sword. At this
point, I retreat to the far left corner and just let the beams fly over to the
doomed Goblin. This strategy also works with four Stafloses under your feet and
a ghost behind you. Once a sence of timing is established and the sword shoots
beams, you are essencally invincible (unless you get careless).
The dragons all share the same strategy. Get the axe, and be prepared to spen a
lot of your time dodging. When I do battle, I usually attack, dodge, attack, and
dodge. Though this is time consuming, it preserves your five heart life-span for
those dungeons. In other words, do not be bullish and attack at full force. Also
beware the tail. It is hard to see and sometimes forces you to doge right into a
Zelda Game & Watch Items
This weapon is three times stronger than your sword. You automatically use it when
you are pitted against a dragon. You should find this weapon as it is very important
to beat the game. To find it, keep going right when given a choice to travel. Once
a dragon is defeated, you may no longer use the axe.
This shows you what the dungeon looks like. You will find that level 1 and level 5 are
identical, as is 2 to 6, 3 to 7, and 4 to 8. It is not important to find this item. It
also shows you what room you are in.
Water of Life:
This is the same as it is in all the other Zelda games. It refills your life. Unlike other
Zelda games, when you run out of hearts, it automatically gives you maximum life. You can
have only one bottle at a time. To use it at any other time press down.
This is self explanitory to Zelda fans - it revives your life meter by one heart.
