In Paper Mario: Sticker Star the typical RPG mechanics are gone: without experience points and level, there’s no way to improve Mario’s Hit Points other than finding the HP-UP Hearts. Each Heart will improve Mario’s Hit Points by five points: with 16 Hearts total Mario’s HP can reach 80. Given that some common enemies and bosses can be quite though, it’s really important to find them as soon as an area is available for exploration.
