An oldie and a newbie

This week, XBLA sees the re-release of a famous platforming mascot and a new shoot 'em up comes in guns blazing, as well. - 1200 MSP

SINE MORA is a horizontal shoot'em up that provides a unique take on challenge, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, SINE MORA is a gorgeous shmup that offers a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre. With many ways to manipulate time, SINE MORA features over 60 weapon combinations to complete each beatifully-crafted stage that form fits to the player's skills with scaling difficulty. Soundtrack composed by Akira Yamaoka and featuring boss designs by Mahiro Maeda.

I'll definitely try the Sine Mora game as it's from one of my favorite developers. The genre isn't really my thing but I still have to try it.

"Run, Jump and punch your way through the 2 first levels of the game battling the mysterious Hoodlums and their minions."

Read like the xbla version contains only the first 2 levels of the original game. I'm sure it's the full game but what does this phrase "2 first levels" mean in this context?
