The “Legend of Zelda – Outlands” is a hack of the original 8-bit “Legend of Zelda” game for the NES. The ROM can be downloaded here. The game is also available in cartridge format on Ebay and the like, however the price is prohibitive.
Note that this re-work of the original LOZ game is notoriously difficult. I was, however, able to dig up walkthrough in word doc format. I am posting it below for posterity, and am adding some formatting to make it easy to read.
The Thunderbird, a horrible guardian encountered by Link in the Great Palace of Zelda 2, has somehow survived and is out for revenge. Having lost the Triforce of Courage at the hands of its adversary, it has stolen the Triforce of Power and flown to the vast neighbor of Hyrule, the Outlands.
In a world similar to yet completely different from Zelda 1, Link must track down the captured Tetrarch Fairies and, with their help, break open Ganon’s secret golden vault where the creature now resides. Link will face dangers and traps unlike anything Ganon had ever devised. His adventure will span 18 new dungeons hidden within a completely unfamiliar terrain.
Zelda herself will make appearances to help the hero, providing items and sage advice crucial to the new journey. Link has become very skilled in his familiar world of Hyrule, but skill alone is his only advantage — the land of the Outlands is a beautiful yet deadly world bearing no resemblance to his own cherished kingdom.

One thought on “Zelda Outlands Walkthough”
Very good guide, however.
This guide is actually so-so for the reason that its just too much reading; it would really help a lot to post a few screenshots of the areas you mention going towards. (Like bombable secrets, or entrances to the dungeons, this would save so much time!)
(For instance the Ice Maze, I was so lost at this section because I didn’t know WHAT part of the game was the Ice maze, and the exemption of saying “Its near the graveyard” would have cleared up a lot. I legit had to look at a map that told me what was what because no screenshots are ever posted.
The issue I have with your guide is you have to follow the guide word-for-word to know where to go next which can leave the player really really lost because it can require back-tracking to figure out where to go sort of like following a bread-crumb trail of clues.
For instance I got stuck only once or twice on this game, and to figure out what to do I had to read entire paragraphs
Also reading “Up, up left go back left then up , ect due to on screen battles you can lose track of where you are. Please post screenshots of the goal, also the map at the top is so tiny and blurry that it can be difficult to make out.
Over-all still a great guide but its not one you can just glance through to look where you’re stuck at to get you through.
