I agree that StarTropics 2 has better controls, but the lives system and more generally frustrating platforming made it a weaker game overall, IMO....or did the first game have limited continues, too? I can't remember anymore and I can't find anybody talking about it. >_<

I honestly can't remember. Star Tropics mostly bring to mind images of tiles and the frustration that came with it, which is kind of weird, because I do remember liking the game. Not that Star Tropics 2 is an easy game, but movements were more fluid and to me that made it more tolerable.

The first game had lives, but no limited continues. Apparently the second game does that as well. Or at least that's what I'm assuming since no one ever mentions the clear lives system that I can see in screenshots, but then again, do I really trust the internet?

EDIT: Oh hey, I remembered one of my old forumites from another site did a video review of the game, and he actually does bring up the lives thing. Yeah, that wasn't the bad part, it was the "5 stars to earn back a single piece of your health" thing that hurt the game. I plum forgot, there were times when you were better off dying than trying to grind for health...
