 Prisoners Location                                                      [PRLC]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 The formating of this guide will be as follows:

-Mission#
 =Map#
  -Prisoner# (VISIBLE/HIDDEN) Description. Items rewarded by the prisoner.

 I defined map as one entire area before screen fades. You can use the touch
screen to browse through the map you're in, but not other maps. 

 Prisoner# is according to their location. So even if #14 is the first prisoner
you see, when #13's location is closer to you I numbered the closer one first.

 (VISIBLE) means the prisoner is visible on the map. (HIDDEN) means you need to
fire at a certain location in order to make the prisoner appear. The best way
to find hidden prisoners is playing on the Beginner difficulty, as you have an 
unlimited ammo of Heavy Machinegun. 

 I'll describe the prisoner's location in Description part. I'll use previous
prisoner, background, and enemies as reference points. It's recommended that
you play through the mission first, and then read my guide because the first
time it can be confusing whether you've passed my reference point or not.

 Items rewarded by prisoner is quite straightforward. I'll just write down
a single word (most of the time) naming the reward. If I have no idea, I'll
just say swag. Weapons will be written as their abbriviation.

 Total of 100 prisoners of war. 

 Just for reference for people who're doing high score runs: on Beginner 
difficulty, I saved 84 prisoners and got 5.03 million points. Consider it a
"normal" run score. I will try a 100 rescue run and see how the score changes.
