Link Old Zelda OoT 3D, bare minimum challenge

I just finished OoT 3D doing the bare minimum I needed to in order to complete the game. This means:
Finish the game with only 3 hearts. Do not pick up full hearts from bosses, or any heart quarters.
No skultulas. This means no increased wallets, and no shard of agony.
Only Great Fairies allowed are small magic meter and Din's fire. This means no large magic meter, no Farore's Wind, no Nayru's Love, and no doubled defense.
1 Bottle only, No fairies allowed. Bottle only used for carrying items necessary to complete the game. This includes a fish for Jabu Jabu, and blue fire to melt red ice.
No Biggoron Sword.
No satchel upgrades.
No scarecrow's song.
No ice arrows. As far as I know, both fire arrows and light arrows are required to finish the game. But there may be a way to do so without fire arrows.
Added challenge: No deaths.

The verdict? Surprisingly easy actually. And it makes the game go by REALLY fast. By far the hardest part of this game under these conditions is Volvagia. All of his attacks do 3 hearts worth of damage. That means you have to completely avoid taking damage when fighting him.
Easiest part: Probably the final battles.
I would suggest this challenge for anyone wanting to try something different.

Now I just need Nintendo to release Majora's Mask 3D so I can complete it without using the song of time.

I'm down. Plus, I don't bother getting a bigger wallet anyways. That's a start, no?

About 5 hours of gameplay over a period of about a week. It went really fast.
Rai, have fun!
Also, feel free to add to the challenge. There may be ways to finish it with even less than this. I'm going to experiment with no epona, no shield use (unless required for a puzzle), no fire arrows, no superfluous songs (sun's song, epona's song), and no warping (other than when required, which I think limits it to shadow temple and spirit temples songs), and no lense of truth. Of course, you could try to do it with even more constraints than these. Let's see how challenging we can make this.
Also, note that when I said no satchel upgrades, this included no upgrades for deku nuts, deku sticks, slingshot, bombs, and arrows.

I'm trying to find fault with any of your conditions.

It all checks out.

I gotta try this on my next playthrough.

Nice job. I'd never have the patience to try this, I'd stress over me doing something wrong too much.

I struggle through the game as it is with most of the hearts, so I probably wouldn't do well at this. ._.;

This reminds me of when I did a 3-heart run around the time the timeline was revealed. It was a simple 3-heart run, but if I died, that was it. There was no going back to that save file. I'd delete it and then play a new file or start a new game.

It's supposed to represent the beginning of the Downfall timeline, and the game I played after dying was ALttP.

This actually isn't that hard. As long as you know how to avoid taking damage, it does not matter how many or few hearts you have.
I am currently playing another variation of this challenge. If I can complete it, I'll post my complete list of constraints. So be looking for that in like a week. Also, does anyone know of a good way to take high quality photo/video of 3DS gameplay? I want to prove I'm actually doing this.
