Phantom Hourglass is a little easier than most of the other Zelda titles, but that doesn't mean it's a total cakewalk. To lend a helping hand, we've constructed this fast-pass guide. Seeing as you're savvy enough to be on GamesRadar, playing Zelda and looking up help, we're going to assume you've played a little Zelda in your day. Therefore, we're not going to bore you with every last detail. If the route is simple, we'll say "advance" or "move on." If there's a puzzle the warrants explanation, we'll dive on in. You want tricky parts answered, not every single step, right?

Head to the end of the guide for an item list and a complete run through the Temple of the Ocean King (minor spoilers!). For now, we'll start at the first dungeon.

Temple of Power - Blaaz

First dungeons are always easy, but this one's a complete cakewalk. We blew through in about 15 minutes, maybe less. As long as you know the boomerang will carry a flame from one torch to the next, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to plow through this in no time.

As for Blaaz, pay attention to the top screen - you'll notice each of the three enemies has a different horn pattern. Use the boomerang to gather them in order (one horn, two horns, three horns) and swing away. Repeat and you'll have a new fairy in the group, and be able to open a new door in the Temple of the Ocean King.
