Dragon Warrior is an epic RPG series which now spans 11 games across many systems. The second game greatly expands on the first to include a party of three heroes (all descendents of Erdrick and the hero of DW1) and battles that may include many enemies.
The world is much bigger and there are many big dungeons to explore as well. Luckily there are new abilities and items to make this easier. Enemies can randomly drop items when defeated and there is a lottery which is the precursor to the casinos which appear in each later DW game.

TheAxeMan improves the previous TAS by 1 minute and 52.5 seconds, thanks to new glitches and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments and the commentary subtitles in the encodes for more details.
