The 15-Second Game is a Mini-Game in A Link to the Past.[1]

Location and rules[]

The 15-Second Game is a racing mini-game that takes place in the southern part of Kakariko Village in a yard next to the Quarreling Brothers' house. Link must Bomb the left wall of the house and walk outside to access the game. A woman informs him that he will get a reward if he reaches the end of the track in fifteen seconds or less.[2] Doing so, Link earns a Piece of Heart.[3] If he plays again, the man at the end of the maze tells him he has no more rewards to give.[4]

If Link enters the maze from the Dark World using the Magic Mirror, the owners will not let him participate until he properly begins the game.[citation needed]


  • In A Link to the Past, the Sign in the yard will tell Link that if he has enough time to read it, he should go straight to the goal.[5]
