|After fully clearing the first dungeon map, I ended world 1 with 999 hearts.|
World 2 has sidescrolling levels instead of the vertical scrolling levels from before. These are a bit easier because there aren't as many ways to fall below the screen and die. The enemies are a bit tougher, but now since I've got my shield weapon, the 3rd strength upgrade, and the long arrow weapon, the game is still a piece of cake. I did get both my extra weapons stolen once by the enemy that steals weapons from you, then I bought them both back at the next 2 black market areas. Other than that, I breezed right through that world and got to the 2nd dungeon...
