Then go south until you reach some ice, and walk west over it. Go back to Horon Village and go north from there until you reach the screen with two rocks blocking the path north. Lift them and go north. There are Buzz Blobs in this area that will electrocute you if you hit them with your sword. You can kill them by throwing an Ember Seed on them. Scent Seeds attract monsters. If you drop one, monsters will walk toward it.
Get Ricky's Gloves You don't have to go west just yet, but if you do, you find a kangaroo named Ricky. He would help you get to Spool Swamp but he lost his gloves to Blaino. Go east from the Scent Seed tree described in the previous section and go south to find Blaino's Gym.
Bet him 10 rupees to fight a boxing match against him. Press A and B to throw punches. Avoid his punches and try to hit him where he's not blocking his body with his gloves. When you push him out of the ring, he gives you Ricky's Gloves.
Be sure to re-equip your items before leaving. Go north then west from Blaino's Gym. Keep going westward, across a small bridge. Plant a Gasha Seed In the screen with the small bridge, go to the west side of the bridge and go north until you reach a screen with a tree trunk that you can crawl through.
There are Darknuts in this screen. There is also a hidden patch of soft soil near the middle of this screen that you can reveal by digging with the shovel. You can plant a Gasha Seed there if you wish. If you continue north, you encounter a Ball and Chain Soldier. Past that, there is a palace that you can't enter because of dark energy. Find Ricky Please Note! In this game, you can befriend Ricky the kangaroo, Dimitri the Dodongo, or Moosh the bear.
If you want to befriend Dimitri you have to win the Strange Flute from the Subrosia Dance Hall you have to win several times before the Strange Flute is given as the prize. If you don't get one of those flutes before giving Ricky his gloves, Ricky becomes your animal companion for the rest of the game. Back in the screen with the small bridge, go west, then north to reach Ricky.
Talk to him to give him the gloves. If you didn't get one of the flutes mentioned above, he will give you Ricky's Flute, which lets you summon him no matter where you are. You automatically jump into his pouch. To punch, press A. Hold the A button to charge up a tornado punch. Press B to get out of the pouch. Walk up to Ricky to get back into the pouch. Enter the Swamp Go south until you reach a screen with holes blocking the way.
Ricky says that he can jump over gaps automatically. Walk into the holes and he'll jump over. Ricky doesn't get electrocuted by Buzz Blobs, so just punch them to get rid of them. Along the way, you will pass by a house. Inside is a woman who says that she feels too hot, and needs something creepy to send chills down her spine. If you have the Ghastly Doll, she will take it and give you an Iron Pot.
North of the woman's house you find a cliff. Ricky explains that he can jump up the cliff in one leap. Just push on the cliff and Ricky will jump onto it. Go north, then Ricky will go back home. The swamp is to the north. You'll pass by a sign that says Tarm Ruins are to the north. You can't do anything at the ruins right now, so you can just ignore it and go west.
You'll find a Pegasus Seed tree. Hit the seeds with your sword to put them into your seed satchel. If you use a Pegasus Seed, you walk more quickly for a limited time.
As you make your way into the swamp, you'll see Sokra sleeping on a ledge that you can't reach. If you go north then east from him, you find a house where the guy says that he lost the key to the floodgates. There is a lever in the bottom-right corner of the house. Hit it with your sword to drain the pool in the house. The Floodgate Key is there. The old man says that you can reach the floodgates from the puddle outside.
Go outside to discover that the water here has drained, too. Go down the stairs there. The owl statue says to use Pegasus Seeds. Step on the switch, then use a Pegasus Seed and run across the bridge. In the next room, push the rightmost green rock up, and the other green rock down. Use the Power Bracelet to pick up the brown rock, then push the bottommost green rock left and the one above you up.
Go down the stairs. Follow the path around this area and lift rocks to reach the stairs at the end. Keep going until you are outside again. If you go east, you can talk to Sokra, who says that you need a new power of seasons, so you need to find a new path to Subrosia. Continue south to find a Business Scrub who says that he saw a strange vortex south of the floodgates. He offers a shield for 50 rupees. You can get a cheaper one in Horon Village, so don't bother. There is hidden soft soil in the screen with the Business Scrub.
Go east from the Business Scrub and push the keyhole to use the floodgate key. This lowers the water down below. Go back to where you encountered Sokra and jump down off of the ledge. Now go north, then west. Use the Rod of Seasons to turn it to Winter. From the tree stump, go east, then south until you are in the swamp. Spool Swamp with Ricky If you have Ricky, then just jump up the ledge on the left side of the screen. Make your way west, then south until you encounter another cliff.
Go up it and go south. Use a tornado punch hold A to charge up to get rid of the bushes between the holes. Jump over them and go south. In the next screen, there is a hidden patch of soft soil under the rock. There are hidden Pincers in holes in the ground in this area, so be careful.
If it's winter, keep going east being careful of more hidden Pincer enemies until you can't go east anymore. Dig through the snow and bomb the wall and go in.
The chest contains the Square Jewel. You'll find Dimitri surrounded by Moblins. Talk to the Moblins and pay them 80 rupees to leave Dimitri alone. You can now hop onto Dimitri's back. Press B to get off of Dimitri. Press A to make him eat whatever is in front of him. He can eat any enemy. He can swim, and can even go up waterfalls. You can also pick him up and throw him using the Power Bracelet. With Dimitri, go south until you can't go south anymore.
There are hidden Pincer enemies in holes in this area, so be careful. Dimitri can eat the Pincers as soon as their eyes appear.
