I spent a lot of time playing this game over the years, and it seems that every time I break it out, the cheap deaths become less and less. I've found that very hits can't be avoided *somehow*--including the final boss--but there's a lot of trial and error and practice involved. I think the sole biggest mistake is the limited continues. The game really needs you to practice, practice, practice, to learn from your mistakes and figure out the correct way to get through each area. It's almost like a puzzle in this regard, and the limited continues makes it very frustrating.

I don't think enough good things could be said about this game's soundtrack. The fact that it hasn't gotten love on OCRemix is a true shame.

Yeah, that's the thing, it's already a hard game to begin with, so putting in all these other restrictions, like the limited continues, just feels really unnecessary. And you're right, the soundtrack definitely is a beast, especially for an NES title. It really stands the test of time.
