Was zelda 2 supposed to be like this?

If you lose all three lives you lose all the exp and levels you had gained until that point? Really?

Are sigs really necessary? Who came up with this stuff?

You don't lose the levels, just the experience

If you believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and are 100% proud of it, put this as your sig
If it is past 10, expect a steep drop in my grammar skills

If your levels aren't even, it will even out your levels to whatever your lowest is. In your case, you had one at 3, so it evened everything out to 3.

If your levels are getting evened out when you lose, it's because you're playing the Japanese version.

North American version doesn't change levels. My levels were 2/3/3 before and after getting a game over. The experience I had is gone, however.

Yeah, the Japanese version handles levels a little differently. They made a few upgrades to the leveling system when they translated the game. Anyway, that is how the game goes. A number of NES games were that way. Crystalis is another notable example. Also a great game. Just be glad you're not playing Mystery Dungeon if you hate losing things for dying.

you go down to your lowest level, worst case i guess would be if you were 8-8-1 and died you'd go down to 1-1-1
