Believe it or not, there's an item in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds called the Power Glove. Surely you remember the Power Glove for NES, right? It was a failed NES peripheral from Mattel built on motion controls.
Now don't get too excited. This isn't the same Power Glove, but it does appear to be somewhat of a homage. Except in this case, Link can use it to remove small rocks to clear a path. Now those precious heart pieces are all yours!
Where is the Power Glove in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds?
You'll acquire the Power Glove from Rosso after completing the Eastern Palace. We suggest getting it before attempting to beat Death Mountain. Lots of rocks over there.
