Walkthrough//DOWNHILL NIGHT 2 Lunar Adept Ver. 1.0 ------------------- General Information ------------------- Downhill Night 2 is a racing visual novel developed by Top and released by Jast in the US. As you have probably guessed, it is the successor of the first Downhill Night. The creators of Initial D also had a hand in it. That being said, as a VN, it also contains sexual themes not suited for children. Thus, if you are offended or disgusted by wet cunts, people getting hot and heavy, and cute lolis (or, you are under the age of 18), you have no need for this guide and should not play the game. --------------- Main Characters --------------- * Akito Tsuchida- The Protagonist this time around. As a college undergrad, you spend most of your time at the arcade playing racing games, and as such have accuired a broad knowledge of cars and racing strategies- although you don't have a license. Can you use these skills to grab the girl of your dreams, or will she along with victory elude you..? * Rinka Asahina- Your co-worker and friend, She's a lively girl and talented member of The Four Knights, an elite group of street racers in your town. After witnessing your skills in action, she takes you on as her racing navigator and together you tear down the streets of Yotsuya... in her car. * Reiko Toudouin- A polite girl from a very wealthy family, She learned street racing from her father, inheriting his skills as well as his tricked out car. Always accompanied by her faithful butler, she seems to have no real knowledge of the world outside of racing and her mansion. * Tomomi Asagiri- A reserved, shy girl who admires Suzukaze, but has trouble expressing herself to people. Because of this, she often gets pulled into misunderstandings due to her overprotective childhood friend. * Kei Narukami- A mysterious girl who sometimes appears on the ridge, looking down at the city below with a forlorn expression. Can you bring a smile to her..? (Paws of bitches; I've got a plastic knife!) * Komachi- A mysterious lol--er, informant who suddenly appeared in town. Although a bit akward, she has the ability to see facts about your upcoming opponent. Whether these facts are helpful or not is another matter. * Yuu Suzukaze- Known as 'The Wind of Yotsuya', he's a former circuit racer and the leader of The Four Knights. A legend among racers both street and non, he rarely accepts race challenges, and doesn't have to- The Four Knights are always more than willing to battle downhill in his stead. And rightly so- he sees his crew as a family. * Shuuji Aikawa- Your best and worst friend. You know the one. He attends the same driving school and college you do, and the two of you have been friends since far back. A car junkie, if he's not gaming with you at the arcade, he's keeping up with the latest info or seeking out cute girls (often Rinka). Always there for you with the latest info on your upcoming opponents, his information network is one to be wondered. ---------- The System **IMPORTANT** ---------- Unlike most visual novels, the choices in this game are seperated into two categories: Map and Storyline. * Map/Route- Instead of your choices leading you to a girl's path, each girl's route choice takes place on the map that appears once or twice per chapter. In order to follow a certain heroine's story, all you need to do is click on their respective face on the map whenever it appears. If your chosen girl's face does not appear, that's fine, you can choose anyone.However, make sure to always pick your chosen heroine when possible. * Storyline- The majority of the choices in the game. These choices progress the game and will always appear no matter which route you choose. These choices affect the game as a whole, not the individual routes. It should be noted that at points in the game, a single wrong choice can lead to gameover. ----------- Walkthrough ----------- -Due to the route choices being a simple point and choose, the walkthrough covers the Storyline part of the game. -That said, in order to get Komachi's CG's you must click the question mark.
