While playing The Legend of Zelda, you may have noticed the wand can sometimes hit enemies above or next to you. Here’s a bit more about the wand glitch from the description of the YouTube video below:
There is a bit of a glitch with the Wand in the first Zelda. For some reason, the hitbox when swinging(stabbing, whatever) with it is disjointed.
Whenever you swing in any direction, not only can the Wand hit behind you when you retract it, but when swinging down, left, or right, it hits 1 grid square above you.
As demonstrated here, this glitch can be an invaluable asset to any swordless quester. I’ve known about this ever since I was a tyke and figured I can help ya’ll out.
