Starting the Legend of Zelda!

Today is my first time playing the original Legend of Zelda. It’s actually really hard. Your life starts out with 3 hearts. When your life is fully, you can throw your sword at your enemies. The problem is, when all of your enemies are throwing things at you, it’s really easy to get hit. When you’re hit, you lose half a heart and can’t throw your sword anymore. So you have to walk up behind your enemies to hit them. Since you can only move in four directions, up, down, left, and right, but not diagonally, this is also very difficult. So you get hit a lot, and refill hearts are rather hard to come by. After about two or three screens, it’s game over and you have to start back at the beginning. At this point, all I know is that I’m looking for a graveyard. But this is a pretty big place, and I have no clue where I need to go to find it…
