    INTRODUCTION
    =================
    
    Samurai Ghost is a classic side scrolling action game that came out way back
    when. Due to the versatility of gaming networks like the Wii Virtual Console,
    the PSN, and XBL, these classic games have resurfaced, bringing back the
    classics we've know and loved (or hated). So let's stop lollygagging and let's
    get into the guide, shall we?

    WALKTHROUGH
    
    =================
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 1                \
    [Z1]                  /
    --------------------
    
    After the introductory sequence, move right along the screen and head onto the
    bumpy surface to the right. This is actually the body of a dragon. When you get
    near its head, a single slash should be enough to take it out. You'll head down
    a chasm, but don't worry, you're the type of samurai that keeps his cool,
    rather than flailing like the rest of us.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    Head right, and there will be floating enemies coming your way. What you'll
    want to do here is use a single slash to take them out while jumping. Jump
    slash them when they're too high, and just use a slash to take them on head on.
    You'll eventually come across skull enemies that may block your attacks. Either
    keep on the offensive, or move back when he's about to strike. Watch your step
    for the pikes that shoot up, and proceed taking out the enemies. The trick here
    is taking your time. Head through the red door-like object.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Move right, and watch for the dog enemies; they're hard to hit. More of the
    floating heads with circle you. Take them out individually, and move through
    the bottom of the ledge and let the dogs come to you to hit them easily. Move
    right and hop over the platform. Note that you can aim down with your sword
    when falling and do a downward slash that take out the enemies at the bottom.
    Use it on the dogs as you see fit. Wait for the next platforms to fall before
    jumping on them. Take out the enemies and the dogs as you make your way through
    to the next door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    BOSS                      \
    /
    --------------------
    
    There will be a skeleton boss that you'll have to take out in the next area. He
    can hit you more than you hit hit if you go in slashing aimlessly. Instead use
    more jump slashes when he has his arms raised, and keep it up, looking for
    openings, to beat him.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 2                \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right, and on the new enemy, you'll have to use two quick slashes, one to
    break its guard, and the other to take it out. Move right and slash the purple
    enemies that form near you. You shouldn't have to jump slash them. Head up and
    over the gaps, but near the end, take your time to avoid falling down. Move
    right through the next moving platforms and when there's no more near, wait for
    one to come from the right. Then head along the other platforms right to
    safety. Take out the red enemy, and head right through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    Jump over the projectiles of the green crawly enemy and slash it once to take
    it out. Keep heading right and jump slashing the enemies, because there are
    flames in pursuit of you. The downward slash works well on the ground enemies,
    and you should note that you don't need to take out all of the purple enemies
    at the top of the screen. Just keep moving, and you'll be able to ignore some.
    Hits you take from enemies push you back a lot, so you'll want to time your
    jumps and attacks to take minimal push back.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    BOSS                  \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right, and crouch to avoid the enemy's attacks. You can slash through the
    projectiles. Head all the way right, but don't go through the door. Head on the
    platforms to get an opportunity to hit the boss. When he's taken enough hits,
    he'll go down, and another door will come down, giving you access to a bonus
    stage. Here, aside from listening to the quirky music, you'll have to collect
    as many of the falling balls as you can.
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    In this next section, you'll have to hurry right and continuously jump to avoid
    falling through the breaking floors. Slash the enemies that come your way as
    well. You can walk along the ground, but that leaves risk. Head all the way
    right to the next door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head right, and there will be an enemy moving right. It'll shoot projectiles at
    you . It's best to slash them rather than dodging them. Head right, and
    there'll be a boss enemy to fight. What you want to do here is jump and slash
    at the enemy's head repeatedly. Hitting the body with yield your weapon
    clanging. Timing your jumps will allow you to avoid some of the attacks. His
    arms will have to drop to have his head exposed before you'll be able to take
    damage. Eventually the boss will go down. Head through the door on the right to
    get to the next section.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 3                \
    [3]                   /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right and jump slash the enemies that come your way. You can hide in the
    short ledges to avoid some enemies, but there tend to be enemies there as well.
    Jumping over the enemies and attacking and slashing is the best option here.
    Head right through the door to the next section.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    In the next section, head right and move over the floating platforms. Be
    careful though, as there are frog enemies and floating enemies in the area.
    Keep moving right, but note that you can take a lot of damage if you aren't
    patient. Move along the right path through the enemies, and head through the
    door.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head right and there will be a green man floating in the sky. He mode of attack
    is spitting. You can slash one of his spitting projectiles, but as for the
    foreign language spits, they turn into enemies once to slash them, so avoid
    them by jumping or crouching altogether to make things easier for you. Time
    your jumps and get some hits in, but you won't be able to land that many all at
    once. It's no big deal, because just a couple of hits will take the enemy out.
    Head through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    Bonus stage. Grab the orbs and enjoy the music to your heart's
    content....actually shorter than that. It's timed.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Move right and across, over or under the rock platforms. There'll be a humanoid
    enemy in green nearby. Slash the enemy, and the others that follow as you make
    your way right. You can avoid some of the enemies by heading up the rock
    platforms that come your way, or you can use the platforms to reach some of the
    higher up enemies. Head right into the door when you're done.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    You'll be up against a boss, but don't fret; he goes down easily. Move round
    the enemy, and jump to avoid his attacks, then slash and keep avoiding damage.
    Jump slash and jump ground slash to take him out quickly, then head out through
    the door.
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 4                  \
    [4]                     /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right. This area is cold and what not, so you'll have to break through the
    glaciers that pop out from the ground before you can get to the skull enemies.
    You can jump over the glaciers, but be careful as the fox enemies are also
    jumping around in the area. Head right and slash all the enemies you come
    across. There's really no need to avoid them. Be sure to attack the floating
    projectile fire as well. Move right and slash through the hordes and the
    glaciers. The lion enemies take some hits to fell, and the skull enemies like
    to block, but for the most part, you should be able to move through the walk
    without taking too much, if any damage. Head right and out through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Don't be fooled; the purple floating string thing is actually a boss you'll
    have to take out. He's fairly easy though. He moves right and throws
    projectiles at you, but their trajectory isn't to large, so they should be easy
    to slash. All you really have to do here is jump slash to the right and you
    should be taking down his health. He moves right, so you'll just need to keep
    moving. No surprises here. Head right through the door, and you'll come to a
    bonus level.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    Gotta love that bonus level music. Head right at the next section, and you'll
    come across skull enemies and foxes, but no annoying glaciers. Slash neutrally
    and by jump slashing as you make your way through. Head right, and hop over the
    vine things sticking out from the ground. Slash the incoming eye enemies and
    the flower thingy. I'm a nature lover, but flowers with eyes deserve to be
    slashed. Head right and out through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    In this next section, head right and slash at the initial enemies, but be
    careful, for the little spikes on the ground launch up, and will hurt you if
    you try to jump over them before they're erect. Bull enemies will run towards
    you. Jump down slashing them, and crouch slashing them works well. Head right
    and through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    BOSS                  \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Again with the innocent-looking-things-trying to fool you-stuff going on here.
    The butterfly(s) are actually a boss enemy. She'll jump through the air around
    you. You can jump slash her at the right moment to deal damage, but it's best
    to wait till she's on the ground before you impale her with slashes. If you
    land a barrage of slashes on her, she'll have difficulty fighting back, and you
    should be done with the level and the section in no time after you move right
    through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 5                 \
    [5]                    /
    --------------------
    
    You'll now be in a cave of sorts. There'll be a moving face that you shouldn't
    worry about, bats, and humanoid enemies with swords. That latter can block your
    attacks, but don't relent and you'll be fine. There will be worm like enemies
    on the ground and on the ceiling. It's in your best interest to take them out
    before they get a chance to show you that they're hostile. Head right and out
    through the second door.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head up and right the path and move on the moving platforms while attacking the
    projectiles that come your way. Be sure not to fall onto the spikes at the
    bottom. Keep heading right, and you'll come across another red door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    In this next section, take out the fox and assassin enemies as you make your
    way right. There will be enemies that jump right to avoid your attacks. This
    can get cumbersome as if you keep moving, there will still be other enemies to
    deal with. There are a lot of enemies here, so feel free to uses your abilities
    on them as you make your way right through to the red door.
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head right and avoid the lightning from the clouds above, but still slash the
    humans and the lions. There will be more of the jump dodging enemies, but they
    should be easier to deal with than in the previous section. You can slash at
    the orbs of lightning that fall from the clouds if they get a little too close
    for comfort.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    In the next section, you'll have a boss to deal with. He arrives on the four
    legged beast, so watch it. Head in front of him, backing up here and there, and
    slash him when you see an opening. You should also occasionally jump slash him,
    but spend more time on avoiding damage than attacking the guy, for he can hit
    hard.
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 6                 \
    [6]                    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right over the breaking material, and be sure to use swift sword slashes
    on the enemies that come your way. There may be platforms that you can move
    over, but don't feel inclined to do so if you don't need to. Head right through
    the red door to the next section.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right, and there will be more of the floating purple hand enemy that is
    easily dispatched. There will also be floating balls that come your way. You
    don't have to hit them, but they can be annoying. A little ways off will be
    some swirly blue vortexes that throw boulders. Take the time to slash the
    swirls and move right, taking out the other enemies that come your way. Crouch
    or jump over the balls, and keep slashing the enemies. There are a lot of them,
    so take you time, and head through to the red door on the right.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head right and there'll be another segment with the floating platforms to jump
    on. There will also be frogs, though. Take your time through the platforms, and
    when you're back on safe land, slash the flying enemies. Move right again to
    the next platforming sequence, and take your time again. Slash or jump over the
    frogs and take out the aerial annoyances. Head right, watching your step, and
    you'll get onto land again. Take out the animal enemy and move right through
    the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Head right through the torches, and you'll face the string enemy again. Take
    him out with the same strategy you used before, and you'll wonder if he's even
    a boss. He goes down quick, and when he's done head through the yellow door.
    Yup, you guessed it: bonus stage.
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    Wait for the boss' intro, and then you'll want to get near the boss, crouch
    slashing. He spins his spear to avoid the bulk of your attacks, and it takes a
    food amount of work to avoid taking damage. A method is to take him on head on
    crouch slashing or slashing constantly to strike an opening, taking damage in
    the process. You'll take damage, but he should go down before you do. Use your
    abilities if things are getting a little too much for you. Keep slashing and
    he'll eventually lose his spear, leaving himself open for numerous attacks.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    ZONE 7                \
    [7]                   /
    --------------------
    
    
    You'll now be in a cave like area. Move right and make sure you're running. You
    may not notice it right away, but you're being chased by fire. You can and
    should slash at the blue projectiles up top, but you should try to jump over
    the ground borne obstacles that stand in your way. You should also slash the
    worm enemies. Slash through the little barrier things that come your way, and
    move through to the door.
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Head right and there'll be a boss to fight. This huge foe's weakness is in his
    head . You'll want to jump slash at his head, and move back a little to avoid
    taking damage. Slashing other areas of the body will yield no results, similar
    to most diet supplements. Watch for the projectiles that move up, and then head
    right and through the door when you finish with the bugger.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    Move right and there'll be another boss to fight. Remember her? Yup, like the
    boss before, use the tactics you used to beat this boss the first time, but
    take your time, and be careful, for you can still lose to them if you take
    enough damage at the one before. Head right when you've succeeded.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    
    
    This next boss is the guy who likes to jump around. Like before, be patient,
    and find an opening before you slash. His attacks do damage, but are moderately
    predictable. Take your time, pressure him just a little bit, and he'll be done
    soon. Head right through the door.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    The magic-carpet-looker-liker boss. This guy can be difficult. There are
    numerous perils falling from the ceiling, so that's a primary obstacle to watch
    for in this battle. Aside from that, the boss also throws projectiles your way.
    What you want to do is to keep moving close to the boss as he moves back. Keep
    slashing away when he's clear open for an assault. The key is to not take too
    much damage. The boss has a second phase.
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    To beat this phase of the boss, you'll first want to take note of the lightning
    that he summons avoid the two lightning columns. Head close to the boss when
    the timing suits you, and crouch slash the son of a gun. He uses sword attacks
    and projectiles, and will almost inevitably get hits in if you don't know his
    attack patterns by heart. However, note that you can slash the projectiles and
    when you do so, slash at the boss.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------
    \
    /
    --------------------
    
    There's yet ANOTHER phase of the boss, albeit an easy one. Jump slash as much
    as you can before the foe takes you out to succeed in beating the final boss,
    and beating the game. Congratulations, buddy.
