Trick ----- -This version of Final Fantasy II has a built-in memo save feature that will automatically save a memo file from the last place you entered or left, but only if you exit the game or turn off the phone by using the PWR button. So, whenever you enter or exit a dungeon/floor/town/castle/etc... the game sets that as a checkpoint. With that in mind, if you are getting killed in a battle or traveled too far in the wrong direction, simply hit PWR and exit the game. Now reload the game and pick memo save. It'll start from the last checkpoint. Keep in mind that the checkpoint is now erased, so if you exit the game again, you will have to start from the last INN save point. A way around this is to go back in or out of the dungeon/stairs/castle/town/etc... that the memo save started you near. That way you'll trigger another checkpoint. Also, make sure that you do this trick before all of your characters die in battle, once all of the characters are dead, the game will automatically erase the checkpoint.
