How do I get to the Stairs (10-P/7-O/8-O) in the Bay?

There are several sets of stairs that you will be able to see in Martha's Bay, but you won't be able to find an easy way to get to them. To get to the stairs at (7-O) and (8-O), you'll first have to get to the stairs at (10-P). To reach these stairs, jump over the pits with Roc's Feather, then swing your Sword at the same time to create a landing pad. Now you can take the stairs and follow the path until you exit on the other side. Another method that could be used to access the staircase is to use the Boomerang to clear out all the bushes, then jump over the pits with Roc's Feather and take the staircase. These stairs will lead you to an Item Increase. To learn how to use our mapping coordinates (10-P, etc), read the walkthrough for this game.

I am at the Wind Fish Egg but I don't have Marin's Song. What do I do?

I'm in a cave and I see a Piece of  Heart on the left of a wall. How do I get it?

Go to the Hen House, go left three screens and then cut the bush and take the stairs. Bomb the nook at the bottom of the screen, go down one screen then right one screen to reach the Piece of Heart.

There is only one ending. However, there is a slight difference if you defeat the game without losing a single life.
