Your progress is saved when you quit the game. The first story remembers exactly where you left off, but the second story uses a checkpoint system. You'll start by the last checkpoint you triggered.
There is a very small amount of violence. So little in fact, that this warning seems overkill.
More specifically, DLC Quest presents itself as a game made by a corporate entity. Since the management is both incredibly inept and greedy, the resulting product is a barely working "game" that features more paywalls than some major highways. In order to make any progress, the player is forced to purchase yet more DLC from the in-game store. The DLC also gets increasingly ridiculous, as if the management has no idea what their game is about, let alone what the players would enjoy.
Things just get crazier during the second adventure, Live Freemium or Die, where the corporate greed has led to many, many more problems and insane business decisions, all of which avid gamers will have seen far too many times to count.
With all of that said, DLC Quest is basically a typical platformer where you run around and gather coins hidden throughout the world, and it's a fairly good one. The main unique feature is the focus on making jokes, so if you're a fan of platformers and like a little humor, you'll probably enjoy spending an hour or so with this one.
There's a big drawback to this game though: if you don't play a lot of modern games (on your computer or mobile device) then many of the jokes may get lost in translation. DLC Quest is clearly made for people that either follow or consider themselves part of the gaming community, so this means that nearly every joke is an in-joke that not everyone will get.
Important: there is no actual DLC in this game. Everything is purchased using gold coins you've found around the level.

Later on, there are zombies (because every game these days needs zombies). Naturally, they appear to have some blood on them.
