As was true of the first game, this one fails on the basic level of character advancement. Combat stats are dictated by equipment. This sequel adds an inventory of items and additional characters, but does little to introduce a cohesive world. The world is once again broken up into chapters that prevent visiting past areas. Characters have a variety of equipment and magic items. The story is there, but there's little development over the course of the game.
Still, it's a fun little Game Boy game, and handles much better than the first or Ninja Taro. There aren't any quests aside from the main one. It's just not an RPG in any sense of the genre I'd consider. It's not really even much of an adventure game to fit in with other action-adventure titles.
