  1. I'm keeping this room for later. All it contains is a full potion of magic.
  2. "2" marks the spot for a couple of chests. This room and the one next to it are made by a bunch of "bubbles" connected by a pipe system I drew in black.

Note. I escaped the left half of 1F E4 through the magic mirror, as I couldn't find any other way out.

Errata corrige: point 2 is in the middle of B1F C3, not C4 as I have mistakenly drawn.

I don't have any key. I imagine 2 holds the big key, but without a key to open that yellow passage I can't get there. I checked every room at least twice. Where did I miss out?

oof, turtle rock was a pain...first i'd recommend having a mana potion or 2 for when you get lost, and then just make sure to check every room along the way, and every combination of pipe entry (also i believe there was a key under a skull in the first big room) – espais Feb 11 '11 at 14:12
@espais Yes, I used it to unlock access to the left half of 1F C4. – badp Feb 11 '11 at 14:15
"mana"!? It's magic! Magic meter, medicine of magic, half magic, magic potions! We didn't have mana back in that day! Except maybe @Mana. I think Mana was around in those days. – Grace Note Feb 11 '11 at 14:16
@Grace There also is a fairy in there... – badp Feb 11 '11 at 14:19
Also, by the way, do you know the Ice Rod trick for regaining magic? It'll be a lot nicer on your pocket than having to invest in Medicine of Magic, however free that is anyway. – Grace Note Feb 11 '11 at 14:20

Unfortunately, I can't seem to recall the location of all the keys, so here's a link to a wiki with a map...Turtle Rock

The key is dropped once I killed the one of those annoying jumpy things Hokuboku in B1F, C2. This unlocks the door to the pipe bringing you to the big key.

This reminds me of when my roommate (also on the first time playing the game) skipped a certain basic key in the Ice Palace. He combed the entire dungeon some 5 times, but skipped the one pot every single time. Glad you got it, though! – Grace Note Feb 11 '11 at 15:15
@Grace Yeah, I saw the room, got annoyed by the flying red x's, saw at the bottom a locked door and say "oh well, I'll get through this rigmarole when I'll have the key" and kind of forgot about it. – badp Feb 11 '11 at 15:38
@GraceNote I did that in the Water Temple in Ocarina of Time - missed a chest after fighting Shadow Link. – Michael May 13 '11 at 18:03
