    I'm now playing Link's Awakening (DX) in RetroArch. My first playthrough of this game ever and it's great!
    I'm at a point now where I think I need the bow & arrow to progress any further. The shop in town has one to sell, but it'll cost me a whopping 980 rupees! Is this the only way in the game to acquire it? Or is there another way? Because of the high price, it always seems to me the game is offering me an easy but expensive alternative to actually go looking for it myself.
    So, should I keep searching or should I just buy it?
    (Don't want to look up a walkthrough - If there is another way, I still want to find it myself. I only want to know if I should start searching at all)

    Its super easy to win rupees every time at the prize grabber store two screens down. Find the right spot and just keep winning until you make the 1k rupees nessesary.

    You can steal it, but that comes with a whole lot of negatives. Like never being able to live through reentering the store.

    And your name is changed to "Thief" for the rest of the game.
    All the dialogs stay the same, but instead of "Link" everyone calls you Thief.

    Well once you decide to steal, there is nothing holding you back as you can steal anything in store.

    Not really. if you steal the bow, the next time you enter the store the shopkeeper kills you.

    There is one ending that differs slightly if you have no game overs. No big deal. Just use youtube.
