    I've noticed that this game doesn't have the best number of guides around 
    here so I have decided to write this guide to explain as far as possible 
    about the game modes and strategies on beating the bosses.
    A little info
    This game is meant to be a two-player game. One-player gameplay is possible 
    but two-player mode makes it a LOT easier and faster and more fun. 
    If you're playing special mode, you can earn(Shoot) silver and buy supplies
    from a Gun-shop. Here you can purchase Guns, Accessories and tools.

    WARNING!! The next section may contain various spoilers, so read at your own
    1. Storyline/Prophecy
    Deep within the earth shall they slumber.
    Silently, they will wait in the darkness.
    After three long centuries of sleep, the awakening will come.
    Then there shall be heard a great cry throughout the land.
    When the undead walk, none shall rest, and none shall sleep, except in death.
    Two shall come to vanquish the immortal one.
    Only they can bring an end to the bloodshed, for only those who know their 
    enemy have the power to destroy their enemy.
    It is the fate of light and shadow...
    It will be a VAMPIRE NIGHT.
    2. Training Mode
    Early on, you're basics like Speed and accuracy will be tested.
    But as you play more, you will be given tasks like, rescuing villagers or
    killing vampires in a given time. As you progress, you will get to face the 
    bosses of certain chapters. If you play well, you should be able to 
    unlock all. This is probably the best way to learn their movements,
    powers and weaknesses because if you have no idea of whom you're going 
    to face, and you've played through all of the previous chapters and have 
    reached chapter 4, 5 or 6 and get killed easily by the boss, you'll have
    to play all over again. Though the first 3 chapters may be easy, the REAL
    headache starts with the 4th chapter. Take some time to play this mode to 
    learn about the bosses and how to time your attacks.
    Beating this mode completely unlocks freeplay.
    3. Arcade Mode
    This is where you get to play the actual game. BUT you can't buy upgrades or
    collect silver yet. This mode isn't as interesting as the special mode as
    you just have to shoot and try to win the game without any side quests or
    better ammunition. This is the version of the game which you can play at 
    arcades by paying money.
    4. Special Mode
    This is how and where the actual game must be played. When you start this
    mode, you'll have 3 boxes which ask you what you want to do.
    They are: 1) Mission Files
                2) Shop
                3) Equip
    5. Mission Files
    This is where you can view your missions. Missions are given to you by 
    people you meet when you start the game who ask you to find something that
    is theirs that they've lost or anything that they want you to do.
    Everytime you complete a mission, you are rewarded. Either with better 
    ammunition or Silver or any useful tool.
    You can only meet people when you start playing from Chapter One and not
    when you WARP.
    Mission files are maintained to let you know about the missions which you
    have completed and which you've not. Checking these files regularly is 
    always advisable.
    6. Shop
    Now this is also a very useful feature which is only available in the
    special mode. Here, everything is based on silver. Silver can be found all
    over the place except Chapter One. If you die, and the autosave feature
    is switched on, the game gets saved and so does the silver you've earned.
    In fact, it's better to kill yourself deliberately as silver will again
    respawn at all the places again. This way, you will get to collect a lot
    of silver. If you have less than 5000 g, the shopkeeper will probably 
    say, "If you bring me some silver, I can create useful items for you".
    If you have more than 5000g,the shopkeeper will probably say,"That's a lot
    of silver. Now I can create anything you want".
    Basically, you can either buy items from him which cost you some silver
    or you can melt(sell)any gun or accessory or tool you have. Note that if
    melt something, 100% of your silver won't be refunded. So buy and sell 
    There are 3 types of supplies that you can purchase:
    7. Weapons
    These include the improvements for your gun which improve its capacity,
    speed and accuracy and above all, Power. 
    The available weapons are: 
    Magazine- available as magazine +2,+4 and +8. Each one increases your gun's
                gun's capacity so you won't have to reload as frequently.
    Bullets- available as bullet x 1.2,1.5 and 2.0. Each one increases the rate
               of damage inflicted on your targets by a certain percentage.
    Shotgun Bullet- Not only does it increase the rate of damage inflicted on 
                      your targets but it covers a wider range and is equivalent
                      to 3-4 bullets fired at a time. This gives you a better
                      probability of damaging your target.
    Machinegun Bullet- It doesn't do much damage but fires rapidly without you
                         having to press the fire button. Once you reload, you 
                         don't have to press the Fire button, you just need to
                         hold it down.
    Magnum Bullet- This converts your ordinary bullets into magnum bullets
                     which do much more damage than ordinary bullets.
    Comical Bullet- Transforms your bullets into comical bullets. I havent used
                      these so I don't know what it means or what it does.
    Gatling Bullet- This is the best upgrade you can buy yet. It's very much
                      effective against big bosses like the one in the Third 
                      Chapter and the Fourth chapter and of course the sixth.
    Rockets- If you want this, you'll have to give up all your silver.
               But once you have this, the game is yours to win!
               This is my favorite upgrade because it makes the game much faster
               and looks good too when you fire one of those rockets.
    8. Accessories
    These include upgrades like the Army Gloves, Hunter's Earring and rings
    which improve your gameplay experience as well as your Backpack.
    Army Gloves- Increases the thickness of your crosshair thereby increasing
                   the probability of a successful hit.
    Hunter's Gloves- Increases the thickness of your crosshair thereby doing 
                       what is done by army gloves, but up to a better extent.
    Earrings- These cost you but they also earn silver. They spawn more grams 
                of silver in each chapter according to which earring you have.
                Having one of these should make your game easier.
                They are available as: The hunter's earring, silver earring and
                                       as the holy earring.
    Brooch- A brooch spawns more rare items like life pickups in each chapter.
              A brooch is of two types: A spirit brooch and an angel's brooch.
    Goggles and spectacles- They alert you when you're near an item/person 
                              you're supposed to find (listed in mission files).
    9. Tools
    These give you many advantages when they're used but using them itself is
    a problem. Guess what...
    They can only be used once. If you die, you'll have to buy another one of
    these. So think and buy and plan and use them.
    ->Life- Available as Life+1,+2,+3 and +4.
    Increases the plus signs, which in turn increases your endurance.
    ->Credit- Available as Credit+2,+4 and +6,+10 or even infinite.
    Increases the no of attempts you can die before your game is over!
    ->Warp- available as warp2,warp3,warp4,warp5 and warp6.
    Each version of the warp lets you start your game from that particular 
    chapter according to the number.
    Besides these, there are some items whcih are available in these lists
    but are not very much necessary for winning the game, but just in case..
    ->Angel's wink, Angel's Miracle, Angel's Kiss and the Devil's whisper.
    They help you by decreasing the difficulty level upto certain extents.
    I've tried them twice but I never felt any difference.
    Score purchases- Score ring, score x 2, score x 4 and score x 6.
    Well the score ring lets you see your score during gameplay. The others 
    multiply your score by the respective amounts.
    Now that's it with the shop. On to equip now.
    10. Equip
    You can equip yourself with one weapon at a time, one accessory and 2 tools
    though you can change your weapon anytime during gameplay if you have an
    alternative to choose from.
    If you have something equipped, you can melt it in the shop. So you must go
    go back back, un-equip that particular item and then come back to melt it.
    11. Chapter 1
    Nothing much to do here because you're just getting started with the game.
    There's no boss here so play easy and dont try to be bring any tools yet if
    you're playing just for the sake of silver. Just shoot all the vampires
    that spawn and try to rescue villagers(read the rescue villagers section)
    as some serve certain missions. When you finish this chapter which is just
    about 2-3 minutes, you will meet a girl who will come with you for the rest
    of the game.
    12. Chapter 2 
    This is where things get a little more complex when you're here for the 
    first time. Shoot any barrels or vases or anything that can be shot as this
    is a chapter where you can get a lot of silver. Keep an eye open for threats
    also. If you're two players, one can shoot vampires and one can hunt silver.
    Boss Strategy:
    Minimum required Weapon: Default weapon.
    Here you will meet your first boss. You can take him out in one go but he 
    runs away twice when he gets hurt.
    The first time, he'll come chasing you from left to right. Try as much as 
    possible and target his face and shoot rapidly. He'll cast spells at you.
    Simply keep shooting them and in the process, you'll counter them all.
    Then you'll head up a building which is much like a lighthouse, then he'll  
    reappear and say, "let's have some fun". Just keep shooting him as fast as 
    you can. You'll have to be careful here though as you can't counter all his
    spells by just trying to shoot him. Take time to defend yourself too. Again,
    if you're two players, you've always got that advantage.
    Then you'll run into a building. So will he again.
    This time, he says,"The fun's over". He will turn into a demon thereby 
    exposing his weakness. Now it's always better to use your biggest weapon
    possible. His weakpoint is his head. Try and shoot his face as rapidly as
    you can. He mill make sounds indicating each successful hit of yours.
    Be quick though, or he'll still cast spells and throw pillars. If you 
    manage to shoot him right on his nose, his health decreases by a slightly
    better margin. Anyway, keep hitting him as well as protecting yourself
    and you should win.
    13. Chapter 3
    This is starting phase of some really hard chapters to come. Some threat 
    known as 'The Genius' runs away with the girl you saved(flies). It also 
    throws some hot balls of fire which you might find annoying at first but 
    you'll get used to them the more you play. Acquire the maximum silver that
    can be acquired and shoot enemies and as usual rescue villagers. Watch out 
    those Ninjas who appear in a few tunnels rolling rapidly and then striking
    you. Eventually, you'll take an elevator to battle that flying genius.
    Boss Strategy:
    Minimum Required Weapon: Bullet 1.2
    Every boss takes three chances. I dont know why. First it flies as it will
    do for the rest of the time. It's more a bat which makes sounds which hurt 
    you. Simply keep shooting the bat as fast as you can to weaken it. When you 
    see it stopping and see some kind of light on its face, thats whats will 
    kill you. Shoot the creature as fast as you can to prevent it from making
    those sound waves. As usual, the bat makes sounds also to indicate its loss
    of health. Now you'll go through a room with many barrels in it. There's 
    no use shooting them because they're all empty. Trust me, i've tried 'em
    all. Now comes the hardest part of this chapter. There's a 50% that you will
    get hurt here at least once. Just keep shooting it as fast as you can and 
    you'll notice that this time it casts sound waves but while moving. You'll 
    have to speed your attacks a little more. A 2 player advantage always exists
    of course. You need to move your crosshair very fast and at the same time, 
    keep firing. This will take a few tries. But then when the creature laughs,
    it becomes easier. Now it literally comes for you. Keep shooting it as fast
    as you can. When it stops suddenly, stop shooting it because in a few secs,
    it will swoop down and try to collide onto you. Shoot it when it swoops down
    so that it gets more hurt and so that it doesnt hurt you. Keep repeating it
    till it goes down.
    14. Chapter 4
    This chapter may be short but it's also the hardest one next to the final 
    confrontation. You'll get a lot of silver here. But so does the boss spawn
    here and there everywhere. Just keep shooting silver because you'll take hits
    here for sure if you're playing solo. Shoot the annoying and speedy threats
    quick enough to prevent them from hurting you. Then, you'll meet some 
    characters who you'll meet in this chapter only. They disappear and cast
    some weird sort of purple balls at you. But they're easy to defend yourself
    Boss Strategy:
    Minimum required weapon: Shotgun
    His only weapon for the first two times is his sword(only). He runs at you
    and splits into 3 guys who like him, one of them is HIM. You'll really have
    to guess or predict or whatever to conclude which one of them is him, to
    shoot at him so just shoot al. Two player advantage gives you an edge but 
    I still found it tough. So when you come here, please ensure that you have 
    the greatest weapon in your arsenal. At least a shotgun, because it has a 
    wider target. Magnum would be advisable too.
    If(You should) manage to hurt him a bit, he disappears and then you may 
    have to finish some missions here. One of them here is very important,
    you'll have to find the shopkeeper's brother. If you do, you'll get new 
    supplies from him. Of course they cost more. But back to the matter at hand.
    This time, the boss adopts a strategy too. There are broken bookcases,
    tables, and ledges everywhere. The boss still adopts the 3 copy strategy.
    This time, each of them jumps onto e ledge. The ledge which shakes shows
    that the original guy is standing on it. Keep shooting him as fast as you
    can. Then now comes the end. There are so many distractions here. 
    The boss' body as a whole is the weak point. If you're two players, it will
    help you a LOT. This is because you'll actually have to deal with two guys
    now. Yes, there's a monster like guy who looks pretty much like the Chapter
    Two boss, who will throw hot cakes(of fire)at you every now and then.
    Anyway the actual guy you're dealing with won't pose much of a threat.
    When the big guy throws cakes at you, always protect yourself first
    by destroying them. Then when you see your targetted guy flying around here
    and there, keep shooting him rapidly. At some points, the little guy will
    fly around with that monster in his background which will charge to attack 
    you. Now, at this point you must learn or realise that shooting the big guy
    does no damage to any of them and it doesn't prevent you from getting hurt.
    The trick here is to injure the actual small guy as much as you can, this 
    hurts both of them so you won't get hurt but he will. Then, again that big
    guy will throw cakes. Again, destroy them all. Some can be destroyed before 
    he throws them at you. Repeat this strategy and when you see the small guy
    flying from left to right or from right to left, just shoot him. It's just
    shooting practice. Repeat the above steps and you'll beat him. Of course,
    you'll take hits. Then he reverts back to human.
    15. Chapter 5
    I like this chapter. This is the most pleasant and beautiful chapter with
    its lovely decorations and flooring and ceilings. It's a palace to be exact.
    Just keep shooting any threats that appear and always collect silver. 
    Every now and then you'll find a queen who tries to make you leave. She's
    almost harmless though. She only throws some sort of bubbles in blue much
    like the hot fire cakes thrown by the boss of chapter 4. Just shoot them,
    continue silver hunting and vampire hunting too. This is a fairly easy part
    of the game. Just survive the threats and you should be on an elevator
    which will soon take you to the top floor, where you'll meet your second
    last boss. 
    Boss Strategy:
    Minimum Required Weapon: Machinegun
    She'll shoot some kind of weird stuff at you. Don't worry about stopping
    them. Thats virtually impossible. Just target her head and chest areas 
    which should bring down her health in seconds. This boss is unique in a 
    way because she fights directly, face to face and doesn't waste time going
    here and there and disappearing. She's easy to kill provided you keep
    shooting her as fast as you can. She swims around and tries to attack you. 
    As I said, this is a direct battle. Just shoot her. Try a machinegun for the
    best results because you dont have to keep hitting the fire button again and
    again. Just hold it. This makes things a LOT easier.
    When you're done with her. The whole place explodes and she dies.
    Now onto the Final Confrontation!
    16. Chapter 6
    Boss Strategy:
    Minimum Required weapon: Just do your best with the best weapon you have.
    This whole chapter is dedicated to the boss of all the bosses you've met
    so far. Yes he's "Sir Vampire". I strongly recommend you face him in the
    training mode first. This lets you know what firepower you'll need. 
    Anyway, get a gatling gun or a rocket launcher. He just lets bats at you. 
    Hundreds of them. Don't just shoot all. You cant do that. If you carefully
    observe the bats you'll see some with some kind of a blue or purple light
    in their background. These cause you damage. Kill them first. Then, shoot 
    at the vampire's body as his whole body(except the wings) is vulnerable
    to your attacks. At one point, he starts protecting himself from your 
    attacks by making all the bats circle him and then all strike you without 
    you expecting a surprise attack. If you watch his hand left wing(from your 
    view) closely, it shakes when they begin to swoop at you. Quickly, start
    shooting his body as fast as you can. You will get hit though. The problem
    is that he's not always vulnerable, but he is now. So you'll have to take 
    chances of course. Towards the end is when comes a part which is different
    from that in the training mode. But now he is always vulnerable. This is 
    actually strange but easier too. In the training mode, he actually does the 
    same usual attacks over again till you're killed. The key here is to protect
    yourself because once you die, you may have to come a long way again, 
    especially if you're playing solo. Always come here with maximum lives, 
    credit and warps. Spend all of your silver. If you don't spend it now,
    when will you. Use the gatling gun or the Rocket Launcher to eliminate 
    those annoying bats. However, I recommend reverting to the magnum to end the
    battle where he's the only threat.
    Once you finish him, you've finished the game. 
    17. The Story ends
    A short cutscene in which the two heroes and the Vampire are destroyed. Six
    months later, the girl visits your graves.
    So much for the storyline.
    18.1 Chapter 1
    1) A man asks you to find his wife- She is one of the villagers you'll save
                                          just when you find the firl.
    2) A girl asks you to find her doll- She mentions some name but it's down
                                           first slope you go after killing the 
                                           4 or 5 vampires.
    3) A guy says there's a secret door- It's at the start somewhere where you
                                           will see the screen turning to a 
                                           different side this time.
    4) A lady asks you to shoot nuts- Just the ditch where you found the doll. 
                                        Two vampires will spawn on the opposite
                                        side to where you found the doll. Shoot
                                        those trees. If it's confusing, shoot all
    18.2 Chapter 2
    1) Find the girl's parents- This is quite tough. This is very well hidden.
                                  I've won the game thrice and only once have I 
                                  got this one. I kept shooting everywhere and 
                                  the trick is to shoot every monster with a 
                                  high impact gun so you're quick enough to
                                  see where you're going and try to shoot any
                                  strange doors or windows.
    2) The Lady's Brooch- It's in a house(cottage) in which you'll see a table,
                            shoot it to get it. When a vampire takes the girl,
                            sometimes if you dont shoot it before hand, you'll
                            see the house. This worked for me everytime.
    3) The carpenter's tools- On a rooftop on one of the buildings. Shoot it
                                fast as you won't have much time.
    4) A very important book- It's somewhere near the  brooch house, and might
                                take a few attempts. You'll have to play the level
                                a few times before you master this.
    5) Weird file(s)-  You will attain the file from one of the villagers you'll
    6) The scared guy's mushrooms- In the dark forest, where you shoot the boss
                                     before entering the last building where he 
    7) Dog's bone- The only innocent being in the game. Anyway, it's just
                     before you run into the place where the cage sort of door
                     closes and the girl comes crawling.
    18.3 Chapter 3
    1) Silver Cup- In some kind of a dining room with very unfriendly guests.
    2) Golden rat- Prove it exists. It's near the elevator where you have 
                     to handle two vamps at a time.
    3) Dog- Another innocent being. Anyway, It's chained somewhere. Just shoot
              the dog or the chain.
    4) Hidden treasure-Somewhere near or between walls or pillars. But concrete.
    18.4 Chapter 4
    1) The old lady- Save her, to confirm, she'll say,"You cant take'em on
                       with just a gun.".
    2) The secret room- It's obvious if you're quick enough to save the girl 
                         from falling down after saving one villager(the old lady)
    18.5 Chapter 5
    1) Gold Fish- Easy one, start the level with a golden surprise.
    2) The golden collar(not cooler)- The background being in silver makes 
                                        the gold look easy at least for me. 
                                        Before the encounter with the queen, shoot
                                        all the plant vases. It's somewhere here
                                        WITH a LOT of silver.
    18.6 Chapter 6
    1) Kill the Vampire- Just kill the FINAL boss!
