    This is primarily a guide to seeking and beating the Secret Missions
    found hidden in all corners of the game. If you're here, that means you
    need help to locate them. If not, please don't bother to read further
    since most of it won't make sense until you have the software.

     \ SECRET MISSIONS \
      \                 \
       <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    
    Secret Missions can be called as mission within a mission. They are
    designed so that you'll curse and swear at the designers for thinking
    up of something to fustrate them, if not more so. Some are insanely
    tough, some of them require long treks back to get them. But the
    rewards are fulfilling. You not only get a Blue Orb piece for each
    mission, and you'll get an item that will aid you in future battles as
    well.
    
    Note that you can return to do Secret Missions in a Round 2 and above
    game, but if you've cleared that mission before, all you get is the
    standard Yellow Orb.
    
    The following guide will list the when, the where, and the how to
    getting the 12 nice stars on your Save and Complete screen.
    
    Remember, all this is OPTIONAL. Whether you wish to do it or not is not
    under my control......
    
    
    
    ===============================
    SECRET MISSION 1 - CRITICAL HIT
    ===============================
    
    When       - Mission 3, AFTER defeating Phantom
    
    Where      - Underwater, broken bridge area
    
    Objective  - Defeat the Sin Scissors by hitting at its weak point
    
    How        - Knock it off balance by shooting in its face with the
                 Shotugn. Then rush up and blast it in its face again using
                 the Shotgun. 60% of the time you should get it. If you're
                 too slow, you can always try again. Just be careful of
                 your remaining health......
    
    Difficulty - 7/10
    
    
    
    ===============================
    SECRET MISSION 2 - PHANTOM BABY
    ===============================
    
    When       - Mission 4
    
    Where      - Hall where you fought Phantom
    
    Objective  - Kill 100 Phantom Babies within the time limit
    
    How        - You can go around killing like crazy, or you can simply
                 use a Holy Water to finish the job in a second.
    
    Difficulty - 1/10
    
    
    
    =================================
    SECRET MISSION 3 - PHANTOM BABY 2
    =================================
    
    When       - Mission 4, AFTER clearing Secret Mission 2
    
    Where      - Time Statue room at the other end of the corridor where
                 you started off Mission 4 from.
    
    Objective  - Kill 100 Phantom Babies within the time limit WITHOUT
                 using weapons.
    
    How        - No, Holy Water won't work here. You'll have to crush 100
                 of them with your bare feet. Luckily the area is a small
                 one, else you'll be crying.
    
    Difficulty - 6/10
    
    
    
    ===========================
    SECRET MISSION 4 - 3 BEASTS
    ===========================
    
    When       - Mission 4, AFTER defeating the Shadow
    
    Where      - Arena directly below airplane room
    
    Objective  - Defeat all 3 Shadows
    
    How        - There's no easy way around this. Roll like crazy, run like
                 crazy, slash like crazy. Just be careful as the auto
                 aiming will look for the moving Shadows instead of the
                 core-revealed ones. You can bet that it's purposely done
                 this way......
    
    Difficulty - 9/10
    
    
    
    =================================
    SECRET MISSION 5 - ONE-EYED DEMON
    =================================
    
    When       - Mission 7
    
    Where      - Pipe room, where you found the Old Key during Mission 6
    
    Objective  - Let one Kyclops kill the other
    
    How        - Just to remind you that your health is still falling
                 during this time period, so take care NOT to get hit TOO
                 much. The hard way would be to move in between the 2 of
                 them, and hope that they shoot each other. Their claws
                 won't hit each other, but they WILL damage you. Another
                 easier way would be to jump on the pipes and stay jumping
                 so that they won't hit you, but rather jump on each other,
                 knocking each other out. Once one is dead, you can finish
                 off the other if you wish to.
    
    Difficulty - 8/10
    
    
    
    ====================================
    SECRET MISSION 6 - A BUNCH OF GHOSTS
    ====================================
    
    When       - Mission 11
    
    Where      - Garden Courtyard just before you ended Mission 10
    
    Objective  - Get the Blue Orb Piece in the air
    
    How        - You'll have to locate the Orb piece first, then start
                 jumping like crazy on the walls and on the heads of the
                 Sin Scissors bunch. Note that Sin Scissors won't attack
                 you if you're moving, so all you need to do is keep
                 jumping up and up until you reach the piece, then you can
                 let loose on them if you wish to. Falling down from the
                 top is going to be a regular feature though.
    
    Difficulty - 2/10
    
    
    
    ===============================
    SECRET MISSION 7 - WATER PRISON
    ===============================
    
    When       - post-Mission 13
    
    Where      - Check on the Captain's skeleton back in the Captain's room
                 of the Ghost Ship
    
    Objective  - Defeat all 8 enemies
    
    How        - Use the Needle Gun to defeat all the 8 Blades in the
                 water. Be careful to avoid getting caught in claw fire.
    
    Difficulty - 3/10
    
    
    
    ====================================================
    SECRET MISSION 8 - TREASURE GUARDED BY THE DEATH GOD
    ====================================================
    
    When       - Mission 15
    
    Where      - Check on the picture wall in the rolling spike area back
                 at the start of Mission 14.
    
    Objective  - Defeat all enemies
    
    How        - 3 Shadows, if lucky one at a time, if not, 3 at once. This
                 time there isn't much moving space, so be careful. If
                 you've gotten the Nightmare Beta the area becomes very
                 helpful with the constant rebounding of the shots.
    
    Difficulty - 9/10
    
    
    
    ======================================
    SECRET MISSION 9 - SHADOWS IN THE DARK
    ======================================
    
    When       - Mission 16, AFTER defeating Nightmare
    
    Where      - Airplane room
    
    Objective  - Locate and defeat all Shadows
    
    How        - There are a grand total of 4 Shadows hidden in 3 places. 2
                 of them are in the airplane room, 1 in the hall, 1 in the
                 bridge room. Standard Shadow fighting plan required, so
                 you should be used to them by now.
    
    Difficulty - 8/10
    
    
    
    =============================================
    SECRET MISSION 10 - A LONELY FLIGHT OF STAIRS
    =============================================
    
    When       - Mission 16, AFTER defeating Nightmare (or during 17)
    
    Where      - Colosseum
    
    Objective  - Get the Blue Orb Piece by climbing the stairs of death
    
    How        - A long jumping experience. Just make sure not to twist L3
                 too much or else you'll fall off. Alignment's paramount,
                 but then again, there aren't any enemies. More irritating
                 than difficult.
    
    Difficulty - 1/10
    
    
    
    ==============================================
    SECRET MISSION 11 - HOLY BLUE STONE IN THE SKY
    ==============================================
    
    When       - Mission 17
    
    Where      - Broken bridge
    
    Objective  - Get the Blue Orb Piece high up in the air
    
    How        - To ACTIVATE the Secret Mission is a pain in the butt. You
                 have only one chance to activate this by moving from the
                 end of the bridge back to the door end WITHOUT falling
                 into the water. The game recogises it when you step onto
                 the first and last platform. Thus jump on the first, Air
                 Raid towards the last piece, then jump on solid land to
                 START the mission (you'll know when the Secret Mission
                 screen comes out)
    
                 In this mission you'll have to use the jump-pools that the
                 Death Scythe will shoot out, avoid its attacks while
                 flying up to get the Orb piece. Chances are that you'll
                 end up falling into the water since you'll have no idea
                 where you land, so it's best to get it done in one single
                 try. Lots of resetting required here......
    
    Difficulty - 10/10
    
    
    
    =======================================
    SECRET MISSION 12 - THE HIDDEN BRACELET
    =======================================
    
    When       - Mission 21
    
    Where      - Hidden room behind wall opposite Time Statue of Mission 21
    
    Objective  - Get the Hidden Bracelet at the end of the Hidden Path
    
    How        - Cross the long stretch of road first (with couple of
                 Nobodys in the way), picking up the final Blue Orb Piece
                 here. At the end of the path there will be a large room
                 with a dragon waiting and blowing hot air. This time this
                 dragon dosen't spit fireballs, so you'll have to do it the
                 hard way: Hitting it on the head with weaponry. It's
                 impervious to all gun attacks though. Once you've defeated
                 the dragon 2 Frosts will appear. Defeat them, and jump
                 your way to the Time Bracelet!
    
    Difficulty - 7/10

    This should be it, all in one release. If there is any need for updates
    it'll probably come after I've confrimed the "When" part of the game,
    since some of the Secret Missions allow you to try them a little later
    than prescribed. All the "When"s at the moment are the earliest times
    you can try though, so there shouldn't be any problems for those used
    to the timings.
    
    For now,
