    ========================================================================
    
    This is my first FAQ. Now, I'm not gonna lie, I'm not writing this
    because I like this game. In fact, I had never even heard of this game
    at the time I decided to write this. The real purpose of this guide is
    to score me the thirty dollar GameFAQs FAQ bounty. Now, that may seem
    shallow, but hear me out... Actually it is shallow, but here, take my
    guide. Your satisfaction is only collateral damage here and I'm not even
    gonna act it isn't. Enjoy.
    
    Feel free to contact me at deejai@live.com. Your contributions to this
    guide are welcome and you I will make sure you are credited.

    4. How to Play                                                     [CT0]
    ========================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.1 Moving Psychopomp
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.1a Great Spirit Tree
    ~~~~
    From the Spirit Tree overview, you can see you calabash stash in the
    middle, seven surrounding worlds, a back arrow, and a down arrow. Tap a
    world to make Psychopomp move there. Double tap it to enter the world
    where you can enter levels the same way. If you tap the calabash in the
    middle, you will see how many calabashes you've collected. If you tap
    down arrow, you will go to the base of the Spirit Tree where there are
    three initiation levels. From here or from the Spirit Tree overview, you
    can press the back arrow on the bottom left to return to the main menu.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.1b Gameplay
    ~~~~
    Your screen will generally follow the spirits. To move your character
    (Psychopomp), click a spot on the screen and he will move there. To
    move your screen away from the spirits, slide your stylus to the edge of
    the screen. You can also bring up your map (hold down) and click
    somewhere to move there. Psychopomp is invincible and go anywhere. You
    can press start at any time during the game to restart, quit, or see
    your current time and stardust on the level.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.2 Moving Bubbles
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To move a bubble, blow on it. To blow, hold your stylus on the screen
    and drag it in a direction to make Psychopomp blow that way. Sliding
    the stylus farther will result in a blowing harder. You can blow for
    4-9 seconds before Psychopomp is winded depending on how hard you blow.
    When you run out of breath, just let go and blow again.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.3 Masks
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are three masks which you will use throughout the game. A mask can
    be worn at any time by holding corresponding direction button. While
    wearing a mask, you gain a unique ability.
    
    4.3a Tiger Mask
    ~~~~
    You will receive this mask at the start of Initiation 3. It allows you
    to cut obstacles and enemies as well as divide and combine bubbles. To
    wear this mask, hold right. Slide your stylus while wearing this mask to
    make a cut. To divide a bubble, cut a straight line from one side of the
    bubble to the other. To combine two touching bubbles, cut a line from
    the middle of one bubble to the middle of another.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.3b Bird Mask
    ~~~~
    You will receive this mask at the start of Tir Taingire 1. It allows you
    to create new bubbles. To create a bubble, hold up and draw a circle in
    and open space. This mask also allows you to increase the size of a
    bubble by creating a new bubble and binding it to another via the Tiger
    Mask.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.3c Elephant Mask
    ~~~~
    You will receive this mask with the Bird Mask. It allows you to deflate
    bubbles, even to the point of popping. To deflate a bubble, hold left
    and touch the bubble with the stylus. This can be used to collect items
    that are completely blocked off by making a new bubble inside the
    closed-off area.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.4 Important Objects
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.4a Celestial Stones
    ~~~~
    These are safe spots for spirits. When you start a level, you will find
    seven spirits gathered in one of these spheres.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.4b Gateway Cube
    ~~~~
    Placed at the end of a level this is your destination for your spirits.
    Let your spirit-filled bubble hover here for a few seconds and the
    spirits will enter.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.4c All-Knowing Stones
    ~~~~
    This is a stone with a question mark on it. All-Knowing Stones appear
    in many levels throughout the game. If you find one, tap it for a
    helpful hint.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.5 Collectibles
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.5a Stardust
    ~~~~
    Stardust will show you the way through the level. You can collect
    stardust by touching it with a bubble. Collecting more stardust will
    earn you a higher rank at the end of a level. When you collect the final
    piece of stardust in a level, it will glow green and make a different
    sound.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.5b Stardust Clusters
    ~~~~
    Stardust clusters appear in more obscure locations than stardust and
    consist of a red star in the middle of eight surrounding stardust
    pieces. The red star is worth ten stars, making the cluster worth
    eighteen.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.5c Spirits
    ~~~~
    Seven spirits are found at the beginning of a level, huddled together in a
    a celestial stone. To complete a level, at least one of those spirits
    must make it to the Gateway Cube at the end of the level. Spirits must
    be transported inside a bubble. If a spirit is left outside a bubble or
    celestial sphere for too long, it will die. 
    
    Note: The level will not end until all of the spirits enter the Gateway
    Cube and/or die.
    
    To advance to the next world, you must save fifteen spirits from the
    previous world.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.5d Calabashes
    ~~~~
    Vitamin filled treasures. Mmmmm... These, coupled with stardust and
    spirits, determine your rank for a level, but calabash are much more
    rare. There are three of them per level starting with Tir Taingire 2.
    When spirits are near a calabash, they will turn into hearts.
    Calabashes can only be collected by spirits. When replaying a level,
    calabashes that have already been collected will be blue.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.6 Options
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    4.6a Sound
    ~~~~
    Go here first and switch the sound to "Surround" if you're using the DS
    speakers. It makes the sound quality much better. The other two options
    are "Stereo" and "Headphones".
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.6b Gallery
    ~~~~
    A gallery of unlockable images.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.6c Credits
    ~~~~
    View the names of the people responsible for Soul Bubbles. Tap the
    letters to make them break away and make a sound. Letters farther to the
    left will make lower sounds and letters to the right will make higher
    sounds.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.6d Delete Save Data
    ~~~~
    No surprises here.
    
      *  *  *
    
    4.6e Saving
    ~~~~
    Saving is automatic in Soul Bubbles and happens whenever you exit a
    level.
    
    
    ========================================================================
    5. Enemies and Obstacles                                           [EO0]
    ========================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5.1 Enemies                                                        [EO1]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5.1a Canaries
    ~~~~
    These yellow birds will grab your bubble and toss it around like like a
    beach ball and will also toss it into wind channels. Tap them once or
    twice to kill them.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.1b Owls
    ~~~~
    These gray birds will grab your bubble and run off with it, preventing
    you from moving the bubble until you kill them. To kill these birds, cut
    them with your Tiger Mask.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.1c Ravens
    ~~~~
    These black birds are fast and will not hesitate to throw your bubble
    into spikes. One touch will kill them.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.1d Bees
    ~~~~
    More like a humming bird on drugs, these things will fly at your bubble
    and try to grab a spirit out of it. Two taps will take this sucker out.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.1e Chameleons
    ~~~~
    Chameleons are green lizards that attack with their tongues. A chameleon
    will attach its tongue to a bubble with a spirit in it and reel it in to
    eat a spirit inside. They will eat one spirit and then fall asleep, but
    to prevent this, you can either cut their tongue when they stick it out,
    or tap to stun them. Stunning won't release their grip, but it will
    prevent them from grabbing you in the first place. To kill them, cut
    their tongue and then tap them three times.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.1f Moles (Itjaritjari)
    ~~~~
    Moles are found with a pair of holes that look like really short tree
    stumps. They will pop out of one hole, grab your bubble, and throw it
    out the other. Tap them once to knock them out for a short duration.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5.2 Obstacles                                                      [EO2]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5.2a Wind Channels
    
    These will either help you or hurt you. Wind channels flow in one
    direction and will push your bubble in that direction. To pass through
    a wind channel blowing against you, use consistent blows.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2b Tight Spaces
    ~~~~
    To get through a tight space, cut or deflate your bubble until you have
    small enough bubbles to blow through the space.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2c Mushroom Switches
    ~~~~
    These switches generally open a nearby log door. To activate it, push
    it with a bubble. If there are two adjacent mushrooms, you will need to
    push both of them simultaneously. Do this by creating a bubble big
    enough to touch both of the switches.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2d Vines
    ~~~~
    Vines will trap your bubble by sticking themselves to it. Cut them to
    free your bubble from their grasp.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2e Shroud
    ~~~~
    Shroud is the black mass that prevent you from seeing a level before you
    venture it. Spirits will remove any surrounding shroud.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2f Moving Scenery
    ~~~~
    To put it frankly, this is scenery that moves. They move in the way and
    they move out of the way. They come in two sizes, big and small. 
    Simple enough. Just blow past them.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2g Spikes
    ~~~~
    Spikes don't move, but if your bubble touches one, it will pop. Take
    caution around these things.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2h Spinning Wheels
    ~~~~
    Much like wind channels, these will move your bubble in the same
    direction they are spinning.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2i Closed-Off Areas
    ~~~~
    To traverse an area with no entrance, draw a new bubble inside the area.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2j Sandstorms
    ~~~~
    This is an area covered by airborne sand that blows back and forth. A
    wind channel with no sense of direction.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2k Fragile Rocks
    ~~~~
    These are round rocks that can be broken. When a spirit gets near one, a
    hand-print will appear on it. Tap the rock to destroy it.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2l Falling Rocks
    ~~~~
    These are harmless rocks that fall and knock your bubble out of the way.
    They are continuous, much like a wind channel.
    
      *  *  *
    
    5.2m Sturdy Rocks
    ~~~~
    These are the same as fragile rocks except they are varied in shape and
    size, don't glow, and they break by sliding your stylus over them rather
    than tapping.
    
    ========================================================================
    6. Unlockables                                                     [UL0]
    ========================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6.1 Ranks
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The ranks are E, D, C, B, A, A+, and, S, in order from worst to best. Your rank
    depends on the amount of stardust, calabash, and spirits brought to the
    Gateway Cube. An S rank is given for 100 percent item collection in a
    level. When you receive an S, it will be gold rather than white like the
    other letter ranks.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6.2 Golden Clocks
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Golden clocks are received by completing a level quickly, regardless of
    item collection. If you receive a golden clock, a message will appear at
    the end of the level that says "Faster than the wind!" After this, the
    clock next to your completion time will turn gold. 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6.3 Secret Messages
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Upon completion of a level, you may receive one of the following
    messages for fulfilling a certain requirement.
    
    6.3a "Faster than the wind!"
    ~~~~
    You finished the level very fast. This will give you a golden clock.
    
      *  *  *
    
    6.3b "Petal Blower!"
    ~~~~
    I don't know what this one means. I got it when I finished Altjeringa 3
    in 33:03 with an S ranking. Maybe it just means you're extremely slow.
    
    Update: It's not for being slow. I got 53 minutes on Altjeringa 5 (S
    ranking) and got no message. It could be for blowing a lot of or all of
    the petals off the flowers in a level.
    
      *  *  *
    
    6.3c "Nature Lover!"
    ~~~~
    Thanks to dirty_cowboy of GameFAQs. Here's his quote.
    
    "On a couple of levels I've had 'nature lover' on the end of level
    screen. I'm pretty sure I got that for not cutting plants or blowing
    petals off flowers (which I guess makes sense if it's going to call me a
    nature lover for it)..."

    7. Gameplay Tips                                                   [GT0]
    ========================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7.1 Time and Rank
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Your completion time and your letter rank on a level are completely
    independent of each other. This means that you can take as much time as
    you want to get an S rank, and you can be as sloppy as you want to get a
    golden clock.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7.2 Less Baggage
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Remember, you only need to save one spirit to complete a level. So, if
    you just want to rush through a level and/or you're going for a golden
    clock, blow the spirits out of the celestial sphere and only bubble up
    one spirit, letting the rest of them die. This will significantly
    increase your mobility, but make sure you don't leave any protected
    spirits behind as this will prevent you from finishing the level.

    Another time shaver. When you reach the Gateway Cube, instead of
    hovering your bubble inside of it, use your Elephant Mask to pop the
    bubble and blow the spirit(s) to the cube. This will save you a few
    valuable seconds if you're going for a golden clock.

    ========================================================================
    
    Your goal in each level is to get at least one of the the spirits you
    begin with to the Gateway Cube at the end of the level. This walkthrough
    will tell you how to S-rank every level.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are no spirits in these levels. The goal is to bring the bubble to
    the Gateway Cube. These levels are just for getting the user acquainted
    with the control scheme and the story. On top of being incredibly easy,
    these levels also offer no rewards for quick completion or item
    collection. Your time is recorded, but your rank is not, and there are
    no golden clocks on these levels. There are 3 initiation levels. You
    receive the Tiger Mask at the start of Initiation 3.

    Bubble the spirits and head right. Open the log door and continue on the
    path until you reach another log door. Pass through that and grab the
    stars and the cluster above the branch. Keep going past the moving log
    and avoid the spikes on the lower left. Get the stars and pass through

    past the bigger moving log to a couple of ravens by a spike pit again.
    Watch the spikes and tag the ravens, collecting 4 more stars before
    entering a wind channel. Once you get to the tight space, leave your
    bubble there and scroll the screen past there to cut the two owls who
    will gladly take anything you stick through there. If you bring your
    bubble right up to the space you will be able to see one of the owls.
    The other one is to the bottom right of that one. Just cut randomly
    until you hear a squishy sound. Go back to the bubble and get it through
    the tight space. Grab the stars and go left into a vine pit with some
    more stars. Cut the vines and grab the stars.

    wheels. Once you're out, you'll see your first All-Knowing Stone. This
    particular stone knows nothing so just head right past it. Go up and
    grab the star cluster to the right. There's a bee to the left, but
    there's no use bothering him. Go back down and continue on through a

    for a calabash and get back into the stones to continue your ride. The
    stones should take you along the entire stardust trail and spit you back
    near the start. Exit the tunnel and head back left past the wind
    channels to where the three bees where. Head left into a tunnel with
    wind flowing against you. Continue through there until you reach an
    opening to the right. Go into the tight space for a star cluster, and go
    even farther for calabash number two. Head out and back up the wind
    channel to exit the tunnel the same way you came in. Go up into the
    tightly grouped rocks and get all of the stars between them. You'll be
    attacked by a bee so take him out too. After the first group of rocks
    there will be another. Go between the rocks and grab the first few stars.
    Take a left into a cave to grab the last calabash. Go back through the

    to the bubble and take it down into the tunnel.
    
    Go down and break another set of sturdy rocks before grabbing the final
    calabash. Head back up and take a right. Go back into the tunnels past
