|Stage 7 was mostly an under-lava stage... at first you can only go in the lava as dragon form... but then one of the chests gives you hot pants that let you stay in the lava with any form without taking damage (until a certain enemy damages you and takes them away, but if that happens you can always get those pants back from a respawning chest)...|
You get the pirate disguise upgrade here, which lets you explore below the water in a submarine and shoot torpedos... you have to use this for like 99% of the stage... it's a very easy stage that only took about half an hour. I think I might've missed some stuff above the lava though and I couldn't go back up to it because the dragon blocks respawned.
Stage 8 is a ghost castle.. there are switches you can hit with the laser, which turns on/off ghost platforms and also makes ghost enemies solid and able to attack you and be attacked... this stage is a lot more complex like what the game usually provides... I missed some map spots at the beginning but have no idea how to go there... and I think I missed a couple of doors that vanished because I didn't get to them in time... other than that I got everything else. also I learned that drawing hearts with the art form uses up money and lowers your score for the level.
these last 2 bosses were very easy, although the dolphin boss in the ghost level was annoyingly hard to hit.
