Series Kid Icarus Series

Palutena has a premonition that the Orcos demons will attack Angel Land. She sends Pit, leader of the Icarus Army, to find the three Sacred Treasures sealed away in three fortresses so he can face the Orcos should they attack.

Pit must climb through the perilous, enemy-filled levels, gathering Hearts and using Hammers to find secret doors to power up. The final stage in each world is a maze fortress where Pit must face a boss in order to earn a Sacred Treasure.

The game also features a save function, rather than a password system, and you receive several continues that allow you to continue from the last door you passed through.
