This is another one of those save state games, like Drakan, where if you die you go back to the place and time you last saved. So far I have forgot to save in plenty of occasions, and have had to redo an entire level again. We're so spoiled with autosave, I think, that we don't take it for granite. I always forget to save, and this game is hard at times.
I'm almost at Tatooine, my favorite part in the game. This is going to be fun if I remember all of the secrets I found when I played the hell out of this game back in the day.
