    >>1. 12 Levels in total.
    >>2. Reach the pot/soul/release limit of the level in the bottom right hand
    corner of the screen before your time/life bar runs out. You will die if you
    don't achieve the limit even if you have life left.
    >>3. Health regenerates to full for the beginning of every level so there is no
    need to "save" health for next level.
                        * TIPS *
    >>Tip 1
    Use Spin move (R2) as much as possible (Basically for any turn over 90 degrees)
    to cut time turning.
    >>Tip 2
    Besides Level 1, ALWAYS slash your way towards the enemy units, breaking
    bottles while killing them. The reason why you want to kill them besides
    getting health from certain units is that they will release souls also while
    making their way around. That will reduce the number of souls there are on the
    board. If you cannot make the limit, then you will die. For Level 1 there is no
    real need to kill the zombie.
    >>Tip 3
    ALWAYS pause at the beginning of each level to check out what the enemy units
    are and change your weapon to best suit the level if you don't want to look at
    the level tips below.
    >>Tip 4
    Don't bother sucking ANY souls unless you need health AND there is health NEAR
    >>Tip 5
    Don't try to suck health that is far away. You will waste precious time and
    health waiting for it to come to you. Instead, slash your way towards the
    health soul and suck when you're near it to maximize health/time.
    >>Tip 6
    For slashing pots use ONLY the Thunder or Wind Weapons after Level 7 as the
    Fire sword is way too slow and you will receive the Wind weapon on level 7.
    >>Tip 7
    Remember to recharge soul magic whenever you see it/need it.
    >>Tip 8
    ALWAYS plan ahead. When low on magic on one sword and ready to switch, goto
    menu RIGHT AFTER the magic is cast so that no time is lost.
                        * LEVEL WALKTHROUGH / TIPS  *

    [Item(s) available in level]
    [tips for the level]

    [1 Herb]
    Easy enough. No need to kill it if you are fast.

    [2 Zombie Soldiers]

    Switch to Thunder Sword when you get the orb.
    >>Level 3
    [1 Undead Red Samurai / 1 Blue Soul Sucker]

    Just slash and kill. No need to use magic.
    >>Level 5
    [2 Undead Red Samurai / 1 Blue Soul Sucker]
    [1 Burst Bullets]

    floor while they're down if they aren't dead yet. Ignore the Sucker.
    >>Level 6
    [2 Zombie Soldiers]
    [1 Herb]
    you only get the burst bullets in Level 5, use only 2 shots, 1 for the 2 jars
    in the middle, and one for the left zombie. Save the 3rd shot for one of the
    Red Undead Samurai on level 7. Then attack with thunder or Fire the other one.
    >>Level 7
    [2 Red Undead Samurais / 1 Blue Soul Sucker]
