These are the stages you will encounter throughout Shadow Battle. At first, you will only have the Light World version of each level, but once you finish the Hyrulean Adventure, you will unlock the Dark World versions. Each stage is unique in its layout, as well as different traps can cause some havoc for your opponents. Each is listed below.
The basic stage of them all, you play on a field with trees and a lake surrounding. At the top is a house and at the top-left is a cave, both you can enter.
Hidden in the flowers to the left of the house is a switch. Once activated, it will open a large hole in the middle of the field that will drop anyone standing on it at the time. At the right of the house is an item area, which will be active once you hit the switch inside the house.
The trees hold a hive of bees, which can be dropped by using the Pegasus Boots you can find in the cave. The cave also holds a Cucco, which, if you attack enough time, will send a wave of its friends to attack your opponents.
Dark World: There is no difference between the light and dark, except the trap switch isn’t in the flowers, but at the top of the level.
Tower of Flames
If you are fan of flames, fire, and destruction, you will like this level. There are switches located underneath the pots in the middle of arena that change the direction of the flames. There are also some small holes around the arena that drop to you another location with switches, which will open trap doors on the main stage and drop your opponents down. There are also bombs around the arena.
There is house at the top and bottom of the screen. The top house allows you to spread fire around the arena. The bottom sends bombchus out to blow up all the bombs they can find.
Dark World: The level is real different in the Dark World. There aren’t bombs all around the arena. The top house switch creates a permanent fire. The switches in the middle causes fire to be shot out in every different direction around the arena. The bottom switch still sends out bombchus all over the arena.
Tower of Winds
This stage takes place within the Tower of Winds. The Roc’s Feather can be your friend is level, because if you find it you can avoid attacks by jumping over everyone.
There are four doors around the arena, which leads you to a dark world version of the level. In the dark world, there are switches that unleash Shadow Link into the Light World. Shadow Link drops a giant bomb and kills everything on the screen at the time. Which means if see a bomb being thrown, RUN INTO A DOOR!
Dark World: In the Dark World (that’s the extra version of the level) you’ll find more switches and more bombs! The switches drop more bombs on your enemies, which you can use to your advantage since the level is small.
Set in the garden in front of Hyrule Castle and in the Dark World via portals in the Light World. The Light World consists of a never-ending attack of enemies you’ve encountered in the Hyrulean Adventure. That means normal enemies and bosses will appear to attack anything on the screen.
You can use the portals to venture into the Dark World, but you are only stay there for ten seconds at a time. In the Dark World are all the items you can use in this level waiting for you to take them. You also avoid enemy attacks in the Dark World.
Dark World:There are more bosses and enemies that appear and more frequently. There are also switches that send hundreds of bombchus flying into the garden.
Above the Clouds
This is a fun level, but at the same time can be aggrevating. You are in the clouds and battling to avoid being thrown off the side. Items will appear around the arena, but most of the time are useless if you keep getting thrown off. In the center there is a rectangle of colored blocks that changes colors during the match. When the color of the blocks matches your Link’s color, you may enter to to cause some more trouble.
The center of the arena contains two objects that shoot fires around the arena. When you can go into the middle, you can find a switch by dropping down the hole in the middle. The switch changes the direction of the fire.
Dark World: The Dark World has four fire breathing objects instead of two, and the frequency of the blocks changing color is increased.
