The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Seasons
Attachment
Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons are the only games in the series that truly intertwine, allowing the player to receive bonuses and upgrades in one game for linking it to the other. Linking the games is also the only way to truly finish the story as the final bosses only appear at the end of a linked adventure.

Jet Set Willy
Attachment
Like most ZX Spectrum games, Jet Set Willy was stored on a cassette tape. Simply making an audio copy of the cassette allowed people to easily copy Spectrum games. Jet Set Willy was one of the first to come with a form of copy protection: a card with 180 coloured codes on it was bundled with the cassette. Upon loading, one of the codes from the card had to be entered before the game would start. Although the cassette could be duplicated, a copy of the card was also needed and at the time, home colour reproduction was hard to do. Thus copying Jet Set Willy was trickier than most Spectrum games. However, means of circumventing the card were quickly found, and, reflecting the attitude to software piracy at the time, one method was published in a UK computer magazine.

Jet Set Willy

As originally released, the game could not be completed due to several bugs. Although actually four completely unrelated issues, they became known collectively as "The Attic Bug". After the player entered the room The Attic, various rooms would undergo corruption on all subsequent game plays, including all monsters disappearing from The Chapel, and other screens triggering instant death. This was caused by an error in the path of an arrow in The Attic, resulting in the sprite traveling past the end of the Spectrum's video memory and overwriting crucial game data instead. This bears similarities to a buffer overflow, and as such is an early example of such an error - and the problems it can cause.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Attachment
According to STI director Roger Hector, Michael Jackson was initially brought in during development to compose music for the game, even though no mention of his involvement was included in any of the game's credits. This was supposedly due to the scandals that arose around Jackson at the time. His involvement was removed from the title, and much reworking, including all the started music, had to be done.

In December 2009, Michael Jackson's composer Bradley Buxer (credited in Sonic 3 as Brad Buxer) told French magazine Black & White that Jackson was actually involved with some of Sonic 3's compositions, supposedly not being credited because he wasn't happy with how they sounded, due to the lack of optimal sound reproduction on the Genesis.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Majora's Mask has the least number of dungeons of any game in the Zelda series, containing only four on the main world. While there are technically four more on the moon, they are small, contain no bosses, and are completely optional, requiring a set number of happy masks to access each one.

Attachment
Astal's spine did not feature the game's name, which may have lead to its poor sales in the US. Retailers would have had to display the case forward facing, rather than to its side as standard.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
There is a Debug Mode code accessed from the Sound Test in the options menu that is inputted by playing songs in the order 01, 09, 09, 02, 01, 01, 02, 04. This is a reference to the North American release date of the game, which was on 1992/11/24, or November 24th, 1992.

The code to access the Level Select is 19, 65, 09, 17. These numbers reference Sonic developer Yuji Naka's birthday, September 17th, 1965.
