GameplayPit has to battle through four different stages, the Underworld, Overworld, Skyworld, and the Palace In The Sky. At first, he's only armed with a normal bow and arrow, but along the way Pit can reclaim the three treasures that Medusa and her army stole: the Mirror Shield, the Arrow of Light, and the Wings of Pegasus to give him better and new abilities. Additionally, if you can pass the tests of God, you can raise your max HP and arrow strength.
