If anyone wants to cheat on their own, I was able to tweak a few things to make the game a bit easier with cheat engine.
By setting the data type to double, I was able to search for my max health. I just went through the first stage, leveled up a few times, and then when I had it narrowed down to 5 or 6 values, got hit once, to eliminate my current health (which I couldn't freeze). After I had the 5 or 6 max health values figured out, I just set them all to 3500 or so. You could probably set them much higher, but I wasn't trying to break the game.
With the double data type, I was also quickly able to find the money value on each stage after killing one or two enemies.
Your health should stick between stages, so just set it high enough in the first stage, and you aren't freezing anything, and you shouldn't have to search for it again. However you lose all your money each stage, and the memory address changes, so you'll need to do a new search each stage, unless you know some trick I don't.
