It is my honor to have been asked to join the ranks of the Playthrough Committee and bring you the Retro Community Playthrough for the month of February 2015.  I couldn't have asked for a better game to kick off my hosting duties.

Released in 1992 for the SNES, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is the third installment in The Legend of Zelda series.  After the more experimental Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on the NES, A Link to the Past is a return to form for the series.  Improving upon the already excellent original game in many ways, A Link to the Past established many series conventions that would be utilized in many of the later Zelda games.

Platforms
SNES
Game Boy Advance
Virtual Console

Checkpoints
Week 1 - Obtain the Master Sword
Week 2 - Complete the Swamp Palace
Week 3 - Complete the Ice Palace
Week 4 - Finish the game

Note:  For the purposes of the weekly checkpoints, the Dark World dungeons are done in their proper order as they are numbered on the world map.  The dungeons do not necessarily have to be completed in this order.

Achievements
1.   Get attacked by a swarm of angry chickens!
2.   Find Chris Houlihan’s Top Secret Room (not accessible in GBA version)
3.   Upgrade the Boomerang to the Magic Boomerang
4.   Upgrade to the “1/2” magic meter
5.   Fully upgrade your bomb (50) and arrow (70) capacity
6.   Obtain all 4 bottles
7.   Obtain the Bombos, Ether, and Quake Medallions
8.   Obtain the Golden Sword
9.   Obtain the Cane of Byrna
10.  Obtain all heart pieces and containers

I'm in. Never played the game. I'm playing the Game Boy Advance port and so far I love it. A few hours in and I haven't had that dreaded "what the hell am I supposed to do next?" feeling. That's a big deal for me.

A side benefit is I've been wanting to play something, anything on the GBA since I found an SP 101 at my local thrift store months ago, then Zagnorch was nice enough to send me a charger just for asking, then I got a headphone adapter. So yeah, it's nice to take a break from the 3DS/Vita cycle I've been on for a while.

I didn't know this was ported to the GBA. It's also on the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console. That's how I'm going to play. Smiley

I have both the GBA and the SNES versions. However, I've never actually played this game much further than the very beginning sequence. I'm not sure which version I will play, but adult me is excited to give it a try, as kid me was not much on Zelda games as a general rule.

I love this game. My favorite in the franchise. I have played this game a ton of times and beat it lots. I let my cousin borrow my copy, along with some other retro classics, so I will not be joining. Hope everyone appreciates this game as much as I do. Have fun guys!

Started playing. Got through the first dungeon. Looking forward to playing this with everyone.

I have to confess that I've watched many speedruns of this game and many more playthroughs. A good friend and I beat it when we were 10 (well, he beat it actually since it was his game) but I'm excited to finally say that I've played and finished LttP.... Even if it's on the Virtual Console.  shrug

I have played this game a few times but I never got close to finishing it.  This next month will be it.

Awesome, glad you're joining us this month!  Try to make it a regular thing.  Smiley

Looks like we're gonna have a good crowd this month.  I'll be interested in hearing what you first-timers think of the game and if you love it as much as those of us who have played it before.

I've already started the game and am at the entrance of the third dungeon.  Of course, I spent plenty of time exploring the world and collecting items and upgrades also.  Smiley
