why did i think this game was harder than 1 as a kid? the stage hazards aren't really hard at all. shadow clones are a godsend and can destroy bosses if you can get to them without dying, and the final boss doesn't fucking send you all the way back! graphics are superb for the NES, and dont get me wrong this game's still hard, but this is a lot more manageable then the first game.
