    Stealth Kills
    =======================================================================
    
    Stealth kills are one of the things that make Tenchu so awesome. To do 
    one, go up to an enemy when they do not see you and hold R1 and press 
    Attack. This will show a short, slow-motioned out cut scene showing 
    Rikimaru killing his victim in a way different than just slicing (well 
    sometimes). Different stealth kills are achieved when performed from 
    different positions by the enemy. The positions from which a stealth 
    kill can be done are from above, from behind, from the left, from the 
    right, in front of, and in mid-air. They are all pretty sweet and you 
    should try them all out. Here are their positions and a description of 
    what they do.

    From Left                            -   Stab In Back With A Slash
    In Front Of                          -   Stab In Stomach

    Beating The Demo
    =======================================================================
    
    You start out in a setting that looks like a forest. Here, you should 
    practice your moves a bit and get to know the controls. The only thing 
    you can do here is really the swordplay so try to get the feel of it. 
    When ready, just run straight and when you get to the end of the 
    pathway, a cut scene will commence featuring Rikimaru jumping off of the 
    waterfall. After that, the level will begin. Now, turn left and go 
    straight. After like 2 steps, a cut scene will commence showing a 
    burning tower-like thing fall. Don't pay attention to it. Keep going 
    straight and you should be in between a wall and a building. Keep going 
    straight but go very slowly for you will meet your first enemy ahead. 
    When at the opening, look around the corner and there will be a 
    yellowish looking dog. When it is turned around, run and press R1 and 
    Attack near it. This will get you your first stealth kill! Now turn 
    around. You should be facing the wall. See that red box over by the 
    wooden planks stacked against the wall? Go over to it and pick it up. 
    This will give you invisibility for a while. Now, turn back around and 
    go towards that big wooden box near a building. Get the red thing by it. 
    This is more healing potion. Now use your grapple hook by picking the 
    item farthest to your right in your inventory like thing on the screen. 
    When selected, hold triangle and point it towards the white building 
    directly across from the box and point the grapple towards the roof. 
    When it is on the roof, let go of triangle and let the grapple beam hook 
    on. This will cause you to fly on top of the roof. Now, get the red box 
    in the middle of the roof and now you have sticky bombs. Now, turn 
    around and hop down from there onto the ground below. See that big box 
    again? Well, hop onto it and then onto the roof of the house right by 
    it. Continue walking down the roof until you get to a guard. When he is 
    turned around, hop off and press attack. If he didn't see you, this will 
    cause you to do a stealth attack. Now, turn to your right and you should 
    see a ramp. Go up it but do not go all the way up for there is a guard 
    up there and he cannot see you. Press against the wall by the ramp and 
    when the guy turns around, quickly jump up to ground level and go and 
    stealth attack him when close by pressing R1 and Square. Now, walk over 
    him to pick up his spear. After that, walk off of the edge of the ground 
    and go straight. You should be in between two buildings. Go through them 
    and drop down to the ground below. Look near the red house and you 
    should see a guard and an unarmed man. When the guard and the unarmed 
    man are both turned, quickly run to the guard and kill him. Now go for 
    the unarmed man. Now, keep going straight where you killed the unarmed 
    man and you should see a big hill like thing that you can go up. There 
    is a guy with a bow and arrow up there. You need to climb onto the edge 
    of it and wait for him to turn around. When he does, kill him and take 
    the bow and arrow. Now you have a bow and arrow! Now, go back towards 
    the building where you killed your first human. When you are in front of 
    it and are near where the first guard you killed was standing, turn and 
    look at the courtyard where the unarmed man and the guard were. Jump 
    down onto the ground below and you should see some vase looking things 
    around there. Break them and get the item there. It is more healing 
    potion. Now, go towards that red thing by that building in front of you 
    and break the vases there and get that pick-up. Now head back to that 
    red house in the courtyard. Go towards the door and a cut scene will 
    commence. After it, you will need to take care of two guards that are 
    charging after you. Hurry and kill them with sword combos and such. 
    After that, here comes the boss fight! The boss is a guy wearing red and 
    has a sword and a gun. You need to avoid the sword as much as possible. 
    Just keep doing sword combos on him and he will eventually die. If you 
    need more health, just use the healing potion. Congratulations for you 
    have beaten the demo!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    =======================================================================
    
    These are just some frequently asked questions about the demo.
    
    Q = Question
    A = Answer
    
    Q: Where can I get the demo?
    A: The demo is in the March 2003 edition of Official U.S. PlayStation 
    Magazine. 
    
    Q: How many characters and levels are there in the demo?
    A: There is one character and one level.
    
    Q: Why is there no blood?
    A: This is probably because they couldn't make it too gorey because it 
    is a demo. I am guessing they didn't want some little kids to see it or 
    something.
    
    Q: Can I pick up weapons off of dead bodies?
    A: Yes, you can but only the bow and arrow off of the guy that has it 
    and the spear off of the guy that has it.
