Heart Piece #1 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Kakariko Village 
          Requirement/s : 1x Bomb
          Directions : In Kakariko Village, head to the northwest corner of 
                       Kakariko Village. There is a pit by a cave. Head to the
                       upper ledge and drop off the ledge into the hole. There
                       are chests here with some goodies. Now, examine the 
                       north wall and bomb the crack you see. Head north and 
                       open the chest for your first Piece of Heart. 


     Heart Piece #2 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Kakariko Village
          Requirement/s : 1x Bomb
          Directions : Head to the green-roofed building (Blind's Hideout)
                       and descend the stairs into the room where you 
                       originally had to push the blocks around to get at the
                       rupees inside the chest. Inspect the north wall and bomb
                       a hole in it. Go through and open the chest at the end
                       for a Piece of Heart. 


     Heart Piece #3 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World 
          Location : Lost Woods
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : This is a simple one to get. Start by heading into the
                       Lost Woods (the entrance is north of Kakariko Village).
                       Now, continue to head north until you reach a tree trunk
                       with an entrance in it. Pass that and avert your eyes
                       to the 3x3 bush cluster. This is way too obvious. Cut
                       down the center bush to reveal a pit. Drop down and 
                       pick up another Heart Piece. 


     Heart Piece #4 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : South of Kakariko Village
          Requirement/s : 1x Bomb
          Directions : If you head a little south of the village, you'll come
                       across a few houses and buildings. One of them contains
                       a man who claims that he's feuding with his brother and
                       has sealed the west door. Apparently, he has not sealed
                       it well enough as a simple Bomb will take it down just
                       like that. The other brother is in this room but he's of
                       no importance. Exit and talk to the woman nearby. You 
                       will need to complete her race within 15 seconds to get 
                       a prize which is very well, the fourth Piece of Heart.
 

     Heart Piece #5 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Marsh-Like Area South of Link's House
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : This one's easy. From Link's House, head south two 
                       screens and then west one screen. You should reach a 
                       large, white, building. If you don't see it immediately,
                       it's probably south of you. Anyway, enter the building
                       to reach some blocks ahead of you. Push the center one
                       north and then either the left or right to the left or
                       right (depending on which one you're pushing). Continue
                       (the chest is inaccessible as of now but you can get it
                       later by pushing the blocks a different direction) and
                       you should come across two switches embedded on the 
                       wall. Pulling the left one causes Bombs to drop from the
                       ceiling so don't do that. Instead, pull the right one
                       to make the water run out. Go back outside and your
                       fifth Piece of Heart is right there waiting for you.


     Heart Piece #6 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : West of Sanctuary
          Requirement/s : Pegasus Shoes
          Directions : When Sahasrahla gives you your Pegasus Shoes after 
                       passing the East Palace, you can head to the Sanctuary
                       to get yet another Piece of Heart. Head west of it until
                       you reach an elevated plateau. Climb up and take careful
                       note of the cluster of fives rocks. Dash straight into 
                       to smash them into little pieces (fun isn't it?) and to
                       reveal a secret staircase. Head down and open the chest
                       at the north end to reveal a Piece of Heart. 


     Heart Piece #7 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Desert of Mystery
          Requirement/s : 1x Bomb
          Directions : Once you get to the Desert of Mystery, you should get 
                       this immediately. When you enter the area, head north
                       until you can't go any further. Then start moving east
                       and you should soon reach a cave in the wall. Enter, 
                       and continue all the way until you reach a dead end. 
                       Now examine the south wall and bomb the crack you find.
                       Go in, open the chest, and collect a Heart Piece.


     Heart Piece #8 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Desert of Mystery
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : I strongly suggest you pick this up while embarking 
                       through the Desert of Mystery dungeon. I haven't 
                       memorized he directions through the dungeon to the door 
                       leading to the Heart Piece but if you read the Desert
                       of Mystery walkthrough, you'll find it there. Anyway, 
                       you need to find a door from the dungeon leading out to
                       a ledge which holds the eighth Piece of Heart. 


     Heart Piece #9 ~
     =------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : North/Northwest of East Palace
          Requirement/s : Flippers
          Directions : This Heart Piece should be picked up after getting the
                       500 rupee Flippers from that large Zora dude. Anyway,
                       from that point, start moving directly south until you 
                       reach a water. Go over it to land in the next section of
                       water. Continue to advance south until you reach two
                       more waterfalls side by side. Instead of riding over 
                       them like we just did, head west until you reach grass
                       again. Keep going in this direction until you reach the
                       Piece of Heart.


     Heart Piece #10 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World 
          Location : Death Mountain
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : This isn't a very obvious Heart Piece here. When you get
                       to Death Mountain and pass the old man, you should be
                       traveling up and then west (assuming you follow the 
                       walkthrough). There, you will find a cave that's 
                       supposedly leading back to Kakariko Village and a long
                       flight of stairs going up. Head up and then east. As you
                       advance, you should notice a small ledge and visible 
                       cave below it. Bypass it (unless you want to fairies in
                       it) and you should reach a cave with two large ledges
                       in front of it. Now, stand as far right as you can on 
                       the left ledge (you can line yourself up by walking into
                       the left side of the tree-like thing in front of the 
                       cave and going straight south. If you did it correctly,
                       you will land on a ledge with a cave. Enter and head all
                       the way to the south where a Sahasrahla Plate resides
                       as well as a Piece of Heart sitting there, plain as day.
                       Phew...


     Heart Piece #11 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Death Mountain 
          Requirement/s : Magic Mirror
          Directions : You can get this Heart Piece right after getting the 
                       Magic Mirror from the old man. In fact, you should be
                       collecting this as you head to Mountain Tower. Head all 
                       the way to the top of Death Mountain and then advance 
                       all the way east. You should reach a peculiar pattern 
                       of rocks with a blue warp in the center. Step in to be 
                       transported to the Dark World. Link will turn into a 
                       bunny (assuming you don't have the Moon Pearl yet) and
                       won't be able to attack. Head east a little and pass the
                       pumpkin-headed creature kicking around a pink ball. 
                       Now, take careful note of the north wall. There are two
                       circles on the ground. Step on the east one and use the
                       Magic Mirror to get back to the Light World and on top
                       of Spectacle Rock (or as Sahasrahla refers it as) with
                       the Heart Piece right next to you. If you jump off the
                       north ledge, you'll be at Mountain Tower.


     Heart Piece #12 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : Pyramid of Power
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : Upon defeating Agahnim, you'll be transported to the
                       Pyramid of Power (which is where the Hyrule Castle sits)
                       in the Dark World. Head down the large staircase in 
                       front of you and then head down the east staircase. 
                       There will be two ledges in front of you. Fall down the
                       eastern-most one and head east and north continuing 
                       until you finally reach the Heart Piece. 
      

     Heart Piece #13 ~
     =-------------= 
          World : Light World
          Location : Near Lumberjack's House
          Requirement/s : Agahnim's Defeat
          Directions : This is easy to get. Transport back to the Light World
                       and head to the lumberjacks' house (north of Kakariko 
                       Village by the entrance to Death Mountain). Near their
                       house is a tree with lighter green leaves than the other
                       trees. If the lumberjacks are cutting the tree right 
                       now, that means you didn't defeat Agahnim at Hyrule 
                       Castle. If there's no lumberjacks around, dash into the
                       tree to blow off the top. Descend the stairs to an
                       underground cave. The Heart Piece is in this area as 
                       well as a number of fairies. 


     Heart Piece #14 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World 
          Location : Island on Lake Hylia
          Requirement/s : Flippers, Magic Mirror 
          Directions : To get this Heart Piece, you have to head south from 
                       3x3 row of pegs that you had to knock down with the 
                       Magic Hammer to the Lake of Ill Omen (Dark World Lake
                       Hylia). Along the way, you should come across a gap 
                       south of Dark World Lake of Ill Omen Shop. Jump off 
                       and swim around a little bit to the northeast until 
                       you find a circle of rocks. Swim to the center of it 
                       where there are shallows. Take out your Magic Mirror 
                       and use it to warp back to the Light World. You'll 
                       find yourself on a tiny island with a Shocker and a 
                       Piece of Heart. Pick it up  and step back into the 
                       warp.


     Heart Piece #15 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : South of the Village of Outcasts Where Heart Piece #4 was
          Requirement/s : Shovel (the guy gives you one anyway)
          Directions : Do you remember where you got Heart Piece #4? At the
                       house with the two fighting brothers? Well, head over
                       there. A little to the west of the house is a strange
                       creature standing in front of the opening to a large 
                       fenced area. Talk to him and he'll let you keep whatever
                       you dig up for 30 seconds. He'll also let you borrow a
                       Shovel. Now, start digging frantically as many holes as
                       you can. It might take a while but the Heart Piece is 
                       under one of those holes. It's in a different location
                       every time so it might take you a few tries to find it. 
                       Good luck!
 

     Heart Piece #16 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Desert of Mystery
          Requirement/s : Magic Mirror, Power Glove
          Directions : If you start at the Bomb Shop and head kind of southwest
                       towards an area by the Desert of Mystery, you should
                       reach a circle of bushes. It is too obvious to pass up.
                       Step into the circle of bushes and use the Magic Mirror
                       to warp back to the Light World on a plateau near the
                       Desert of Mystery. North of you is a cave. Enter it and
                       head north a little. The 16th Piece of Heart is behind
                       some pots you need to smash. 


     Heart Piece #17 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : East of the Village of Outcasts
          Requirement/s : Titan's Mitt, Magic Hammer
          Directions : This one isn't that complicated to get. Thank god! 
                       Anyway, begin by heading to the Village of Outcasts. 
                       Do you remember where the blacksmiths' house was in the
                       Light World? You know, where you got your sword 
                       tempered? Well, start heading to that area but you will
                       be blocked off by two large rocks that you couldn't pick
                       up before (assuming you already tried too). Now that you
                       have the Titan's Mitt, you can pick them up the same way
                       as the Power Glove can. Go through and start smashing
                       every purple peg you see with the Magic Hammer. When 
                       you are finished smashing them, a secret passageway will
                       appear to the south. Go through to reach an underground
                       room with a Piece of Heart sitting right there.

     Heart Piece #18 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World 
          Location : East of the Sanctuary
          Requirement/s : 1x Bomb, Magic Mirror, Titan's Mitt, Pegasus Shoes 
          Directions : East of the Sanctuary is a graveyard like area. Go there
                       in the Dark World and work your way through the area
                       all the way to the northeast corner. Pick up the rocks 
                       with the Titan's Mitt and continue through. There's a 
                       plateau nearby that you can walk up to. Get on it and
                       use the Magic Mirror to warp to the Light World to get
                       on top of a plateau. Go through and pick up all the 
                       pots. Bomb the north wall to reach a Piece of Heart. 

     
     Heart Piece #19 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : Entrance to Death Mountain in Dark World
          Requirement/s : Magic Cape
          Directions : While in the Dark World, head to where you will find the
                       entrance to Death Mountain in the Light World. Go 
                       through the cave (after lifting a giant rock). Continue
                       through until you reach a pit. Use the Hookshot on the 
                       skulls on the opposite side to get across. Now you have
                       a large blue bouncer in front of you. If you step into 
                       it, you'll be pushed back. Instead of bouncing back and
                       forth, equip your Magic Cape and walk across it. The 
                       door shortly ahead leads to the Heart Piece on top of 
                       a ledge.


     Heart Piece #20 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : Village of Outcasts
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : First off, head to the Village of Outcasts. Now, around
                       the western area of the town, you will find a house with
                       a engraved chest above it. Enter and talk to the little
                       creature. He'll let you open two chests and will let you
                       keep whatever is in them. Accept and keep on opening
                       chests until you get it. Depending on your luck, this 
                       could really take a while but keep at it until you find
                       it. 


     Heart Piece #21 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World 
          Location : Swamp of Misery
          Requirement/s : [none]
          Directions : If you search along the west wall of the Swamp of 
                       Misery, you will find a strange structure that appears 
                       to have yellow eyes and the mouth being the doorway. 
                       Enter it and continue through the room with the sparks.
                       Now, there are gray blocks surrounding two chests. Use
                       your brain and move them around (in the walkthrough, I
                       provide directions) until you have access to the right
                       one. Open it for a Piece of Heart. And for the record, 
                       the other chest contains a red rupee which equals 20 
                       rupees. 

     Heart Piece #22 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World
          Location : Desert of Mystery 
          Requirement/s : Magic Mirror, Power Glove
          Directions : This Heart Piece is also found around the Swamp of 
                       Misery/Desert of Mystery. From the Swamp of Misery, head
                       to the northwest corner of the area where there is kind
                       of a niche in the wall. It's pretty obvious as it 
                       protrudes greatly against the east wall. Stand as far
                       into it as you can and use the Magic Mirror to warp to 
                       Light World in the Desert of Mystery on a ledge. Lift up
                       the large rock next to you and descend the stairs. Head
                       north a bit and you'll be faced with a number of blocks
                       with the Heart Piece on the other side. Now, use your
                       brain and move the blocks the best you can. If you can't
                       get it no matter how hard you try, refer to the 
                       walkthrough.


     Heart Piece #23 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Light World 
          Location : Death Mountain
          Requirement/s : 2x Bombs, Power Glove, Ether Medallion, Magic Mirror
          Directions : The 23rd Heart Piece, we're getting pretty close to that
                       24 mark. Anyway, you should get this Piece of Heart on 
                       your way to Turtle Rock. When you appear at the turtle 
                       head, instead of entering Turtle Rock, head west. You'll
                       see a large rock. Lift it up to reveal a staircase. Now,
                       just head north until the path seems to stop directly 
                       in front of you. This is the signal to use the Ether 
                       Medallion. As the effect takes place, you notice that 
                       the path really does stretch out further. So walk 
                       carefully along the invisible path using the Ether 
                       Medallion for help at times. Soon, you will reach a 
                       seeable path again. Examine the north wall for cracks
                       and bomb a hole. Go through and you'll find yourself in
                       a "+" shaped room. Bomb the west wall to reach another
                       room. Now you can exit through the south door and you'll
                       find yourself on a plateau high above the ground. Now,
                       you'll notice that I put "Light World" instead of "Dark
                       World" at the top. Aha, use the Magic Mirror and the
                       23rd Heart Piece will be right next to you!


     Heart Piece #24 ~
     =-------------=
          World : Dark World
          Location : Turtle Rock
          Requirement/s : Magic Hammer, Bow & Arrows, Magic Mirror
          Directions : To get this final Heart Piece, you need to be inside 
                       Turtle Rock and then come outside. Since I can't exactly
                       recap it all right here, I'll suggest you read the 
                       walkthrough and the area where I describe Heart Piece 
                       #24 in more detail. What you have to do is get on a 
                       ledge outside of Turtle Rock and use the Magic Mirror to
                       warp to the Light World. Continue east and enter the 
                       door. Defeat every Cyclopses and smash the bouncing pink
                       pegs. The door to the north should be open if you killed
                       every Cyclopses in the room so continue to get the Heart
                       Piece. Again, I plead with you to check the walkthrough.
