There is another series of permanent upgrades in the forge. They increase the chance for items to drop to be "+" up to 100% and eventually (though it's EXPENSIVE) "++". This will be the biggest boost to your personal power on each run, and will go the furthest to making the game easier, but as others have said, it's still not exactly a cakewalk. You still have to learn the HotK's patterns and be able to dodge them semi-consistently.

I'd say the upgrades to health flask can have a pretty big impact on runs
Fair point. The extra heals are super helpful.
Yeah, I pretty much just think of them as lives although you obviously need to activate them manually before actually dying. But then that is why I often take the mutation that saves your life once. When it activates I am often surprised. Lol.
The game is not a cakewalk even with the ++ weapon upgrade. If you're careless with your dodges and jumps, you get insta-cheese. I just lost 70 cells from the first boss from my most recent cell farming session because I wanted to beat the timer.
I'm average at best at most games and beat the first boss on the second try, so I think you'll do fine. No doubt it gets way harder later, but it seems to ease you into it so far. Still a challenge thus far, but not controller-throwing hard.
