The gameplay retained the fundamentals from first, though more effort was put into the game's combat system. The player is already armed with a sword and power ups now increase the abilities for the sword and the player's other abilities. The ability to dodge and block blows was added, lengthening the one-on-one bouts with bosses and unique enemies.
