Screen skip
Approach the edge of any screen and press Select (for the world map) just before it scrolls to the next section. Return to the game from the map. If done correctly, your character will appear to the other side of the screen. This can be done almost anywhere in the game, however take care to avoid jumping into stone walls or other locations that may cause the game to become stuck. This may also cause the game to display levels that do not normally exist. Note: This trick does not work on the DX version of the game for the Color Game Boy.

Go to the Dark World. Go to Castle 4 to get the Titan's Mitt. Go to the Smith's House in the Dark World and move to the corner near the trees. Do the "Screen skip" trick to get be behind the fench of the Pyramid Of Power. To get out, you have to use the Mirror, then the Flute and choose you destination.

Go to the Boss room in the first dungeon. Do not fight the Boss. Instead, fall down the hole. As soon as the screen shows the underground thing, jump with the Roc's Feather. It will take you to a weird world. You can walk through walls, and the enemies will look different. To get out, just save and quit. While in the weird world, you can get the two power bracelets. Note: To be safe with your game, get all of the items, then copy that file. Do this trick on the copied file. You can do this at the very beginning of the game.

Use the following trick to go to Level 8 (Turtle Rock) without having to get all the weapons. Go to the library and look in the book "Atlas Of Koholint Island" and match up the point where Turtle Rock is to a point on the beach. Match up the points and go to the beach. Do the "Screen skip" trick and you should be transported to Turtle Rock without needing any of the required weapons or an introduction from the turtle's head.

Ingenious game, just shy of the brilliance that is Ocarina of Time. Link's Awakening is the best handheld game ever made by far, none come close. It even eclipses it's 'big' brother A Link to the Past in scope and depth, on an underpowered system no less! A system never made for a game of this magnitude. If that's not an achievement, I don't know what is.
Very good sales also, especially when combined with the DX version. Very happy about that.

My all time favorite Zelda game (yes, I've played all of them) even more so then Ocarina of Time. Even without its namesake Zelda this game stands out as truly unique, with easy the most heart wrenching ending an game has ever had. Your not a Zelda fan if you haven't played this one.
