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.

Soundtrack composed by Akira Yamaoka and featuring boss designs by Mahiro Maeda.http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Sine-Mora/66acd000...

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?
