Zelda II: The Adventure of Link Cheats

Quick End

At any time in the game press Start on Controller 1. Then on Controller 2 press Up and A to bring up the “Continue, Save, Retry” screen. Use this if you are stuck in a screen with no way out, and no way to lose a life. You can use this code to save your game (so you don’t lose the items you have picked up), and start over from the starting screen.

The Final Guardian

When fighting your shadow, move to the left side of the screen and press B repeatedly. Your shadow may hit you once or twice, but you should land many more strikes during that time.

Sword Skills

To discover the art of the upward attack, go to Darunia and use the Jump spell to leap up to the house with a chimney. Drop down this and go right to find a knowledgeable warrior. The downward attack is found in Mido. Use the Jump spell to reach the open door at the top of the church, and go through to find a teacher.

Save without dying

To save without dying, try the cheat below. Press start on Controller one and on controller two press: Up and Start
If entered correctly a save screen will pop up. You have the choice to either Save or Continue.

Float Through Doors

To pass through locked doors without a key, simply turn yourself into a fairy (with the Fairy spell) and float on through.
