Title: Link's Awakening DX Hero Mode Hack Discussion
Post by: jmleejobs on April 13, 2022, 03:53:24 AM
Hello, I am new to the forum (but not to the website. Been downloading various hacks from here for years.), and I played through the awesome Hero Mode hack for Link's Awakening DX. Now, I've managed to find the Level 3 Sword & the new tunic, as well as the 3 new Seashell locations, but I am stuck regarding the "impossible room" in Eagle's Tower. I tried to contact the author of the mod for help, but I have not gotten a response from them.

I was wondering if anybody here has discovered how to enter the Impossible Room in Eagle's Tower, relating to the Hero Mode hack.

This is weird. You have to jump into the abyss, turn towards the clay pot use hook to grab it. The pit in upper part of the room is invisible floor.  You can only get to this room if you don't destroy all 4 columns on the second floor.



But, the reward is

only rupies  :(

the level 3 sword is in a new but hidden room in level 8 (turtle rock) filled with lava
you need the running shoes & roc's feather to get it (and already have a level 2 sword) but in order to reach that hidden room, you'll need all the other essential tools like the hookshot

I no longer have the save file for Link's Awakening Hero Mode game, so I have to start from scratch

only the whirling sword spin attack can hurt & kill the "evil" kirby.  normal sword & sword beam attacks and all other weapons have no effect on kirby

same place where you get the level 3 sword

as for the "boxer" mini-boss, I guess you didn't get or read the "hint" from that level:

"Those who have power cannot defeat the mad boxer."

spoiler #2

Spoiler
must use a weak lvl 1 sword without the red tunic & without the triforce powerup to do damage to the boxer.  stronger swords & all other weapons may have no effect on it.  so don't upgrade your sword nor get any new tunics until you beat the boxer using the weakest sword

So it is. At the beginning, I was still trying to use a shield to defend, entice the boss to hit the wall, and so on. I found that it was impossible.  :-[I have upgraded my sword to level 3 :banghead:

Thank you again for your reply :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
