I.	Preface
 
This FAQ is about how to beat The House of Dead without any continue. This 
game was made three years ago, however, very few people truly master this 
game due to its high difficulty. I have been a big fan of The House of Dead 
game since the 1se one released in U.S, after many attempts and practicing, 
I finally able to beat the game without any continue, sometimes without even 
being hit once. I have seen countless people keep dying in this game and 
wasting their money to continue, that's why I decided to write this FAQ 
before the 3rd the House of Dead comes out.

I have met a master player CJ when I was in Asia (Cheng Jie), I saw him scored 
above 98,800, which was the highest score I have ever seen in my life. He did 
teach me a lot about this game, and with his tactics, finally I was able to 
beat the game without even being hit once, with score 97,662, not as high as 
his, but good enough to beat many records in U.S. Many parts of this FAQ was 
from what he thought me before, it is a shame that I don't have his phone 
number, or e-mail address. 

Of course, there are spoilers ahead.

II.	General Strategies

Behind the neat graphic and tight story line, the House of Dead 2 is 
actually a very difficult shooting game, it requires much more than accuracy 
to complete without any continue. 

Before you attempt to accomplish the one credit game goal, you have to learn 
how to hold and reload the gun. First, the old-school classic way to reload-
shoot outside the screen is not fast enough to handle some tough monsters in 
this game, you have to learn how to reload with your left hand-when you 
reload the gun, just use your left finger to block the gun and it will be 
automatically reloaded. It will save you more than one second and make a BIG 
difference.

Press trigger with your MIDDLE finger, your middle finger is much more 
powerful and it can help you to shoot faster.

When you try to kill monsters, shoot their heads instead of legs or arms. 
Heads are always the weakest spot of about every kind of monsters, 
regardless bosses. Even the strongest monster in this game, his head won't 
have any chance against four bullets hitting constantly, however, if you try 
to destroy their bodies, it will take you a while, and you are not going to 
make it before they hit you.

Always watch carefully see if there is any innocent person coming out before 
the monsters, any miss shot will bring one life deduction to you. The best 
way is to memorize the rescuing locations and practice how to rescue those 
people without killing him by accidents. If you successfully rescue EVERYONE 
on your way, you will be able to enter bonus room and get three lives before 
you face Emperor: Type Alpha. I will have more details about how to rescue 
people in section three.

If you want to get the Roger ending, you have to score at least 80,000 and 
the continue number should be zero. The keys of earning points are: 1. Kill 
as many monsters as you can 2. Rescue as many people as you can 3. Beating 
the game as quickly as you can 4. Get hit as less as you can 5. Shooting 
golden frogs and coins as many as you can. How to get high score is not the 
major purpose of this FAQ, however, if you are interested in getting Roger 
ending, breaking my record, or even master Chen's record, if your ambition 
is great enough (I have never been able to get more than 98,000 points, 
97,762 was the best I could do), then please check Appendix A for more 
detailed information.

III. One credit game walkthrough

Note: I am not going to spend too much time on the story line; I am not 
going to spend time on every route, either. I will simply explain how to 
rescue people, mention the places that most people lose lives, and tips of 
beating bosses, which are really related to a "One credit game". And this 
section is based on a single player game. You start with three lives, and 
you are controlling James.

a. The first Chapter: A Prelude

After Judgment's stupid speech, you will see three zombies walk toward to 
James (you), shoot them quickly and you will be okay. I don't record much 
people losing their lives here. 

After James walks into the church, you will see two zombies. They are still 
weak; after you see G sitting on the floor and giving you the monster book, 
two zombies come out, one of them is equipped with axe and I saw many newbie 
losing one life here, the tip of beating axe zombies is to shoot their head 
like crazy-DO NOT shoot other parts just because they use their axes to 
block their heads, two bullets will pierce through their axes and two more 
shots on their heads they will be dead. 

Now you see an Axe zombie just killed a woman, it is IMPOSSIBLE to rescue 
her so just let her die, kill that zombie and you will see another zombie is 
chasing another woman, I suppose Zombie like to marry human instead of 
zombies, too. Just like us. This one is easy, shoot the upper part of the 
zombie quickly, you should be able to finish him with 4~6 bullets, of course 
you cannot miss too many.

NOTE: Here comes a tough one. The woman you just saved asked you to rescue 
another guy, he is chasing by another zombie (probably a female zombie^_~)-
don't let your guard down, you have to defeat THREE zombies here in order to 
rescue this poor guy!!! I have seen countless people fail to rescue this 
one. 
  
The zombie is between James and the guy, and his head is not shown clearly, 
quickly shoot on the zombie's back 3~4 times-DO NOT shoot more than that, or 
you will kill the guy after you kill the zombie.

Two more zombies now appear. Defeat the one in the left side of screen, and 
then defeat the one is the right side of the screen before they reach that 
poor guy. They do not face you directly, so it is hard to exactly target 
their heads. It is all right, shoot their upper parts and you will be able 
to knock them down quickly. There is an extra life in the wooden boxes 
behind that guy, if you want to get it, I suggest you rescuing the guy 
first, then shooting the boxes with INSANELY speed, see if you could get it 
before the guy says thank you.

There will be one more person chased by a zombie, an object blocks the 
zombie's head so you have to shoot the body instead, this is an easy one.

After you defeat few zombie again, you will see worms come out with a group, 
many people lose their lives here, the tip of killing them is to shoot like 
crazy, you only need one shot to kill each of them, so if you truly master 
the reloading trick, you will be fine here.

Two green zombies will try to strike you down on the bridge, be careful 
here. After you finish the axe zombie on the second floor (watch out his 
throwing axe, some people lose TWO lives here), be careful, there will be a 
kid running out of the corner before the monsters do, let him go first, then 
finish the monsters.

You will see two zombies with claw climbing on the two sides of the street 
wall like the Spider Man you see in the movie. Shoot one down quickly before 
you finish another one, and if one of them is too close to you, shoot him 
first.

Right before you fight the boss, you will a zombie on the bridge is trying 
to hit a woman below with a barrel, the best way to rescue this woman is to 
shoot the barrel first, the zombie will walk away, then you can strike him 
down if you want. You have to finish one more zombie coming out from the 
right, but you should not have too much trouble of getting this one. You 
will receive one life from the woman if you save her, now you have four 
lives with you.

Boss: Judgment Type 28/ Karl 
   
Attack: 

1. Axe slash: Used when Karl is alive and after Judgment commands Karl to 
attack.

2. Body tackle. Used when Karl is dead. 

Weak Spot: Judgment itself.

Your goal: Defeat Judgment WITHOUT losing any life.

Judgment's agility is very annoying, it is very hard to track down his 
flying pattern and shoot him. However, he will stop right above Karl when 
Karl is close to you and ready to use his giant axe to hit James. This is a 
good chance to attack, when you hear Judgment shouts out "Go! Karl", aim him 
and shoot him. However, if you follow this old school way to fight Judgment, 
you will give Karl too many chances to attack, and even a master player 
misses target sometimes.

Although Karl is not actually the weak spot of Judgment, shooting Karl will 
still damage Judgment a bit each shot, so you can reduce Judgment vitality 
fast by shooting Karl like crazy, Karl is stupid and slow, you should have 
no trouble of hitting him. Remember you still need to hit Judgment right 
before Karl attacks, but if you follow this strategy, you will only give 
Karl one or two chances to attack.

Master Cheng has told me this following tactics and I doubt who could find 
out besides him: Actually, Judgment's flying pattern CAN be tracked, there 
are two steel sighs on the left and the right side of the screen, if you 
shoot the right side one constantly, you will find that you will hit 
Judgment quite often, too. With bit luck, you can smash Karl down before he 
could even have a chance to get close to you.

After Karl is defeated, here comes the tough part: Judgment starts to tackle 
you, you have to hit him before he reaches you, and you need three shots to 
kill him.

Here is how you kill Judgment:

1. If you see him flying left and right, wait 'till him get close to you and 
shoot the left side of his flying pattern

2. If you see him flying upside and down, wait 'till him get close to you 
and shoot the down side of his flying pattern.

3. If you see him flying to the far left side of the screen, wait 'till 
him flying to the far right side of the screen, he will stop there for a 
second and you can target him there.

4. If you see him flying to the far right side of the screen, wait 'till him 
flying to the far left side of the screen, he will stop there for a second 
and you can target him there.

After you kill him, you will receive one life if you save everyone in 
chapter one, now you have full lives (five lives).

b. The second chapter: Muddy

You will see a car with a zombie blocking the front window, shoot the window 
quickly, you don't have to aim the zombie because one or two shot he will be 
dead, and you save the person. You MUST save this one or the second chapter 
could be as difficult as the fifth chapter. 

After you defeat several zombies, few axe zombies will attack you when you 
are trying to climb stairs, shoot them from left to the right.

When you see a zombie jump off from the second floor, shoot him like crazy 
and you will be able to kill him before he can even reaches the floor.

You will now see two zombies is trying to break the door and get the guy 
inside, shoot them down and you just save the second person in this chapter, 
it is impossible to miss this one because that person is protected by the 
door and all you have to do is to shoot the zombies down.

Beware of the flying axe above your ahead. You will be attacked by a bat 
when you are passing through a tunnel, many people lose a life or two here, 
but actually it is easy to pass this part, just fire quickly to cover 
yourself, you will hit him right before he bites you.

Now you are facing two sword zombies-I have seen A LOT of people get killed 
right here. The problem is their flying axes, the neat graphic makes you can 
barely see the flying axes. You have to watch very carefully in order to see 
the axes. Concentrate on one of them first, then get another one. Shoot the 
one is too close to you so you can push him back (if you can clearly see the 
swords in their hands, they are too close to you.)

After you finish them, you will see a door and a key on the floor, SHOOT THE 
KEY AND PICK IT UP!!! Or you will not be able to face Hyprophant on the 
Sunset Bridge, you will fight him on a wooden bridge instead, it will be 
much harder.

You will see a child chased by a fat zombie-many people failed to rescue 
this child. I must admit, it is very hard to get this one, but not 
impossible. Target the door carefully and shoot the zombie's head right 
after he comes out the house, if you are fast enough, you will be able to 
finish him in two shots. Of course if you failed, don't give up!!! Target 
the zombie carefully, move your gun from left to right SLOWLY and shoot him 
like crazy. If you cannot save this poor child, you are still going to face 
me ^_^ (Hyprophant) on the wooden bridge.

After you save the child, he will ask James to save his father, after you 
kill several weak zombies, you will see a locked door in front of you, shoot 
the lock ONCE to unlock the door, then here comes out the child's dad chased 
be a weak zombie, finish the zombie with two shots.

After you finish the enemies in the room, you will see three boxes on the 
street, the bottom one contains a life box, DO NOT use it if you have full 
life now, save if for later.

Here, An old man is chased by a weak zombie and a fat zombie is rushing 
toward to you, rescue the old man first and shoot fat zombie's head to kill 
him quickly. If you lose a life here, don't worry, remember that life box? 
You can get it later.

You will see three zombies riding a boat, shoot them before they land and 
you should have no problem here.

You will see a young guy chased by an axe zombie, and the zombie is BEHIND 
the guy, so how do you save him? The answer is shoot the zombie right after 
he raises his axe and ready to attack, you can target the zombie's head and 
you will be able to kill him in two shots.

You think you saved him? Yes you did, but you are going to be attacked by a 
chain saw Zombie, his chain saw sometimes blocks his head, you will need 
around 4~6 shots in order to take him down, so you'd better be quick. This 
Zombie won't attack the guy, and you will receive a life from this guy if 
you rescue him.

Watch out the flying axes from the second floor, and three killer fish when 
you are crossing the water. After you defeat few more weak zombies, two fat 
zombies will rush toward to you-so many people lose one life here. The tips 
of beating them is to shoot the left one first, shoot hid head quickly and 
save your time for the second one. You will have to fight four other zombies 
after this part, but they are weak compare to these two fat Zombies.

Boss: Hyprophant Type B 05

Weak Spot: Heart, protected by gills.

Attack-- 

Trident stab: Used when Hyprophant's vitality is more than half.

Killer Fish attack: Used when Hyprophant's Vitality is dropped below half.

Jumping attack: Used when Hyprophant's Vitality is dropped below 1/4, or James 
has survived three waves of Killer Fish attack.

Your goal: Defeat Hyprophant with no more than one life losing.

Hehehe that's me ^_~. Actually, his name is Hierophant, but I don't know why 
in Japan and most of Asian countries, his/her name is Hyprophant, well, it 
does not matter, I am invincible, and your life ends here!!!

I was kidding; Defeating Hyprophant is not really that hard. Hyprophant only 
uses his regular Trident stab at the beginning of the battle; you will have 
to hit Hyprophant's heart constantly before he reaches you. 

Although Hyprophant walks like a drunkard and it seems like impossible to 
catch his walking pattern, if you look at Hyprophant's heart closely
, his heart only moves left and right like Judgment, with speed much lower, 
so you should not have any trouble to hit Hyprophant's heart if you are 
being cautious. Once you hit Hyprophant's heart, he/she will cover his/her 
heart with two pieces of gills. Don't seize the fire, shoot Hyprophant's 
heart like crazy!!! You just have to keep fire Hyprophant's heart, no matter 
it is protected or not, because you will be able to hit Hyprophant's heart 
as soon as the gills are opened this way. After you bring Hyprophant's 
vitality down to 50%, Hyprophant will jump into the water.

He will now use killer fish attack, but don't be bothered by those fish, 
keep shooting Hyprophant's heart, each time you hit the heart, Hyprophant 
will struggle and stop calling fish, only shoot fish when they are really 
close to you. It only takes you one bullet per fish, so they really cannot 
process much threat to you. After you hurt him/her three times, Hyprophant 
will back on the bridge again.

Note: If you are not confident about your skill, then concentrate on 
defending killer fish is a good idea, too. Hyprophant will stop Killer fish 
attack if you can survive three waves of attacks. Do not lose life here.

Now Hyprophant has only 1/4 of vitality left (if you do shoot him/her three 
times during his/her 2nd phase attack), he will now use his/her jump attack. 
I have seen many people having trouble in this part, especially a single 
player game. The best strategy is: Don't let Hyprophant has chance to jump. 
Before Hyprophant jumps, he/she always inhales first and his/her gills are 
opened, shoot Hyprophant's heart like crazy and if you hit the target 
successfully, he will stop jumping. Use this tactic to prevent Hyprophant's 
first two jumps. The final jump is unavoidable; you have to get one with 
your skill. Watch carefully, Hyprophant's speed reaches Zero when he/she is 
at the peak, and his/her heart will open, shoot Hyprophant 's heart when 
he/she is at the highest point to finish this battle. If you get hit once 
here, finish Hyprophant when he/she is still close to you (his/her heart 
will just cover about the entire screen...I don't see how could you miss it).

You will receive one life if you save more than five persons in the chapter, 
and according to the walkthrough, you could save six people. Now you still 
have full lives.

c. The third chapter: Darkness

James and all the folks are riding a boat now. You will face four green 
zombies at the beginning, of course your friends on the boat won't help you, 
you have to deal them yourself.

Many people lose their lives here, and I have seen many people lost more 
than two lives here, what a shame. The best way to defeat them safely is to 
shoot them while they are still in the water. You will finish two of them 
this way. About another two, shoot their head when they are trying to climb 
the boat and bite you. Sometimes they jump high and use arm attacks, 
consider you are unlucky if this happens. You have to move your gun and 
track down their heads before they hit you.

When your boat go through underneath a bridge, you will see a zombie right 
above your head, shoot him four times VERY QUICKLY or his will get you here.

When you see two bats, don't try to aim them when they are afar, wait 'till 
them get close to you, then fire somewhere close to the middle of the 
screen. Easy and simple.

You will then see a guy in the water, two green zombies behind him. The 
camera allows you hit two zombies easily, give each of them one shot and 
they will be dead. It is amazing to see such weak monsters in the third 
chapter.

You will see another boat, an old guy is on it and he is attacked by a green 
zombie, I have seen countless people shot and kill the poor old man by 
accident, and you MUST save him, or you will be forced to fight Tower and 
Strength in different locations, which will make things much harder.

Don't shoot him until the boat is getting close to your boat and the monster 
is trying to attack the old man, shoot the zombie right after he opens his 
arms, one or two shot will finish him easily. 

Amy now screams " James, over there!" and here comes a regular zombie and an 
axe zombie. Finish the axe zombie first and don't let him get any close to 
you, because due to the stupid camera, his head won't be in the screen and 
you cannot hit it.

Amy screams "James, over there!" again, and she won't help you, of course. 
Even she gets a gun in her hand, I always wonder if that's just a 
decoration. Four zombies are running toward to you and one of them is the 
fat zombie. It is VERY HARD to keep your lives here, because you are 
outnumbered and the enemies are too close to you. In order to survive, hit 
the fat one's head with three bullets and see if you could knock him down, 
if you can, quickly finish the axe one, then the other two.

There is a life in the box in the right side of screen after the four 
zombies part, don't miss it. Especially if you just lost one life.

This annoying ***** Amy screams again "James, over there!" Okay, now what's 
the big idea this time? Ah, there is a woman far away and she is about to be 
killed by a zombie. This one is very hard to save. Even I can't say I could 
save her every time. The key is lying on your quick finger and reloading 
speed. You will need around 6~8 bullets in one second to finish the zombie 
in order to save the woman.

Now here comes lots of bats...with quick fire trick you will be fine here. 
After you finish few more week zombies, you will see a guy chased by two 
skinny zombies. They are very weak and slow, I have barely seen people who 
couldn't save him, so I won't mention anything here.

Boss: Tower Type 8000

Weak spots: Main head/slaves heads

Attack--

Slave heads attack: used in his first form

Energy charge: Used when all the slave heads are destroyed.

Your goal: Lose no more than one life in the first phase, and lost no life 
in the second phase.

This boss has five heads. He could be the easiest boss in the entire game, 
however, if you let your guard down, his slave heads could kill you easily.

All you have to do is to hit the slave heads. Each time you hear them 
inhale, it means one of the slave head are ready to attack. Shoot it before 
it hit you. Sometimes there will be two slave heads charge at about the same 
time, don't get nervous, watch carefully and shoot the one actually moves 
first, then take care of another one. 

The one at far right is the main problem, because of the camera, it is hard 
to hit this one when it is trying to attack you. Every time none of the 
slave head is attacking, shoot the far right one. Remember: YOU DON'T HAVE 
TO WAIT FOR SLAVE HEADS ATTACKING, YOU CAN HIT THEM WHENEVER YOU WANT. Many 
people think you can only damage them when they are charging you that is 
deadly wrong. Finish that troublemaker and the rest is a piece of cake.

After you destroy all the slave heads, Tower will run away with the main 
head, of course you have to get him. The only thing you need to know is to 
shoot him when he is charging far away, don't wait for him to attack you. 
You will not lose any life here, his second phase is just too easy. 

You will receive one life if you save at least three people in this chapter, 
you can save four for the maximum.

The Fourth Chapter: Despair
 
The biggest good for nothing Amy just called you, sounds like they are in 
trouble. You are now on your way to save them.

You will be attacked by three skinny zombies, shoot them quickly and you 
will be fine. Next are a masked zombie and a knife zombie, block the 
throwing knife with you bullets, finish the masked zombie first with 4~5 
bullets on his head, then finish another one.

Then you will see a person seized by a zombie, it is almost impossible to 
shoot the zombie's head, that's why many people fail to rescue this guy, 
actually, you only need to shoot the zombie's leg ONCE and you will kill him 
and save that poor guy. You will receive one life if you rescue the young 
guy successfully.

Don't let your guard down, you will have to save another person in few 
seconds, and you MUST save this one, or you will fight Strength in s 
different location and it will be much more difficult. Shoot the zombie's 
head three times quickly before he pulls the person into the tunnel; be 
careful not to shoot the innocent. If you kill him, you have to go in the 
tunnel as well.

Finish two lizards then you will see another Lizard with a Giant sword 
zombie, finish the Giant sword zombie first. He is very slow and you should 
not have any problem here.

After you enter the door, two masked zombie are waiting for you there. You 
have to finish the first one within 4 shots or less, so you will have time 
to finish another one. You may lose one life here easily, so don't blame 
yourself if you do get hurt.

You will now see two Giant sword zombies and a skinny zombie chases an 
innocent, SAVE THE INNOCENT first or you won't have any chance. Two shots 
will be able to kill the skinny zombie, reload your gun and shoot one of the 
Giant zombies quickly, use five shots here and use the last one on the 
second Giant sword zombie, reload your gun again and shoot him quickly, you 
will be able to kill him just before his sword is about to hit you.

Beware of the following three zombies, block their throwing knives first 
then shoot them. They are very slow, so you should not have any trouble 
here.

Boss: Strength Type 205

Weak spot: Head

Attack-

Chain saw attack: Used when he is very close to you.

Throwing axe: used only twice.

Your goal: Lose less than two lives in this battle

You will fight Strength in the coliseum, this battle is truly amazing, 
exciting and difficult. Because of the camera, Strength's chain saw 
sometimes blocks his bead and make him invincible, and Strength runs fast, 
the sound of chain saw also makes many players nervous.

This battle is divided into many sections; in each section, you have to 
damage Strength at least three times, then Strength will hide and show up 
somewhere again. The best tip to beat him is not to let him get close to 
you. When he is far away from you, his chain saw will not block his head, go 
ahead and shoot it like crazy. Strength does walk in a strange way, but his 
head does not move that much, don't let the body bother you.

If you let Strength get close to you, don't worry, calm down. When he raises 
his chain saw and tries to hit you, he is defenseless and it is your best 
chance to attack, shoot him right on time and push him back.

His throwing axe attack is very easy to block, I won't waste my time here. 

In one section, you will see Strength on the top and he will jump off and 
attack you with his chain saw, almost everyone loses one life here, the tip 
to pass this part safely is to focus your fire a bit below his head when 
Strength is about to jump. When he jumps off, you will hit his bead most of 
time, IF NOT, move your gun down quickly and see if you are fast enough to 
hit strength before he hits you.

You will receive one life if you save all three people in this chapter. And 
you should have four or more lives.

The fifth chapter: Dawn

Harry told you to use his car and whoop Goldman's ass. Before you reach the 
parking space you will see two solider zombies first, their defense are 
insanely high, so shooting their heads is the only option if you are not 
willing to lose one life here. 

Here come two gray zombies, if you shoot their bodies, they will struggle 
and release the...earthworms (Okay, I will call them earthworms here.) to bite 
you.

You can kill them within two shots if you shoot their heads, DO NOT do that, 
shoot their bodies instead. When they are struggling, you can get the life 
box inside the barrels behind them. Shoot down the earthworms before they 
bite you.

You get Harry's car, but before you start the car, you will see three 
zombies first, block the throwing knife first, kill two solider zombies 
first, and then finish the last one.

Boss: Judgment Type 28/Karl (Rematch)

Your goal: Not to lose any life here.

This shameless loser asked Goldman to give him another chance, but he does 
not know how to improve himself, so just use the same strategies you used to 
beat him. The only difference is that there is not steel sighs here, so you 
just have to shoo Karl like crazy instead, and shoot Judgment when you heard 
"GO! KARL!"

After you farewell this loser, you will see another car with one zombie 
stand in the front of the car. Due to the stupid camera, you CAN NOT see his 
head, you have to shoot at least 8 times on his body before he kicks you, 
however, it is not the worst, the worst is the following TWO solider zombies 
in such a close range!!! It is almost impossible to lose no life here unless 
you can shoot very quickly, you will need five bullets to destroy each, 
finish the left one within LESS than 2 seconds so you could have more time 
to deal with the second one. Don't blame yourself if you lose one life here. 
I got hurt here quite often.

Two silver zombies now jump in the front of your car, you don't have to 
destroy them, if you shoot them constantly, they will miss the target, 
Finish the left one first then shoot the right one, DO NOT CHANGE THE 
ORDER!!! You will be able to kill the left one and the right one will slash 
and miss you.

Boss: Hyprophant Type B 05 (Rematch)

Your goal: Not to lose any life here.

Sad, sad... Hyprophant is back with MUCH LESS defense, he/she even forgot how 
to do killer fish attack. If you can fire fast enough and aim his/her heart 
well. You can trap Hyprophant in the middle of the screen and he/she won't 
even have a chance to move. Other than that, use the same strategies you 
used to defeat Hyprophant again.

You will now see four zombies far away, they are ALL very strong, so don't 
wait 'till your car is close to them, shoot them from afar!!! You will deal 
enough damage before you reach them and they will be a bunch of pushovers.

Two silver zombies jump in the front of your car again, this time you should 
shoot the right one first, then the left one, DO NOT CHANGE THE ORDER.

Before you reach Goldman's headquarter, two gray zombies and two solider 
zombies are on your way-many people lost TWO lives here. The strategy to 
defeat them is to kill the solider zombie in the left side first, then shoot 
two gray zombies-DO NOT SHOOT THEIR HEADS!!! Shoot their bodies instead, 
they will struggle in front of you and prevent the deadly solider zombie 
attacking you. Finish him first, then take care of the earthworms.

Boss: Magician Type 0

Weak spots: The red parts are not covered by his armor, they are located on 
Magician's right arm, left leg and right leg.

Attack-

Single beam shoot-used when his vitality is above 50%.

Double beam shoot-used when his vitality is above 50%

Rush attack-used every time you deal enough damage during his beam shoots 
attack.

Divine wave-used when his vitality is below 50%.

Your goal: After you defeat him, you must have three lives or more.

Guess who's back? Back again? Magician is back... tell your friends!!! The 
mighty Magician Typo 0 defeated by G and Harry, now is back to seek the 
revenge!!!

Magician has very high speed, and his beam attack is faster than any kind of 
bullet, in order to defeat him, you have to master the reloading trick and 
learn how to shoot fast first.

Magician uses single beam attack during his first two turns, you only need 
4~6 shots to block it, shoot Magician's weak points when he is charging his 
energy.

Magician uses double beam attack in his third turns, if you don't deal 
enough damage in his first two turns, this attack is deadly, you will have 
to shoot both beam 4 times before one of them reaches you, but it does not 
matter if you stun Magician right here. Magician needs a longer time to 
charge before he could fire this attack, so shoot his with all you got, even 
if he has fired, DO NOT bother with blocking his attack, SHOOT him!! If you 
deal enough damage on him, he will be stunned for a second and his light 
beams will stop.

Magician will now use his rush attack, I have seen two guys lost 13 lives 
here...Before Magician rushes toward to you, he always dash left and right 
three times and tries to confuse you, watch his move carefully, after his 
third dash, he will stop for a very short amount of time then rush toward to 
you, aim his RIGHT LEG (your left side) and shoot it like crazy when he is 
stopped, you will be able to hit him before he could even have a chance to 
attack, don't let him have any chance to charge you.

Magician uses two rounds beams attack and two rounds of charge attack, 
follow the tips above and beat his crap out of him. After you wipe out 50% 
of his vitality, he will fly sky high and be ready to use his divine wave 
attack!!!

Divine wave attack are actually 6 light beams, and you will need 12 bullets 
total to complete block them. However, Magician needs a long time to gather 
his energy before he fire his Divine wave, so shoot his right leg (due to 
the camera angel problem, you are not able to aim his left leg, and you can 
barely see his left arm) when he is gathering his energy, if you are quick 
and your accuracy is VERY high, you can kill Magician before he attacks. 

The final chapter: The Original Sin

Note: EVERY monster is this chapter is VERY strong, you have to ALWAYS shoot 
their heads in order to survive. You almost deal NO damage on them if you 
shoot their bodies or legs.

Three silver zombies guard the front door, they are pretty slow, and you 
should not have any problem here.

Three Boomerang monsters are guarding the first floor, they are not really 
that tough, but beware of their boomerang attack, defense yourself when it 
is necessary.

Before you enter the elevator, two silver zombie will come out, since they 
appear a bit far away from you, you will have enough time to shoot them down 
before they can hit you.

After you reach the 50th floor, two silver zombies with chain saw are waiting 
for you!!! They are very close to you and they are insanely tough to shoot 
down. Your quick finger is the key to pass this part, finish the one in the 
left first, then finish another one.

You will see two boomerang zombies again, but they are like Spider Man, one 
of them is climbing on the wall and one is climbing on the cell. Shoot the 
one on the cell first, with two or three shots you can shoot him down to the 
floor, it will be much easier to fight him on the floor.

After you kill several zombies, you will enter a dark room-For God's sake, 
KEEP FIRING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE screen and DO NOT stop, even if there is no 
one there!!! In this room, Every time you turn around, you see a zombie with 
VERY CLOSE range, if you start firing after you see the monsters, it will be 
too late. There is a life in a green box in the left corner of the screen 
somewhere, don't miss it.

Boss: Tower Type 8000 

Your Goal: Not to lose any life here.

Now Tower's main head will join the force of his slave heads and attack with 
them. This is the only new thing you need to know. Besides that, follow the 
same strategies you used to defeat Tower before and you will be fine here.

After you come out the room and defeat some week silver zombies, you will 
face three Boomerang zombies again, it appears to me that the one in the 
left is relatively weak, so kill him first, then finish the other two.

You will see two Silver zombies with chain saws come out from both sides of 
doors. Shoot the one in the left first. They are not as tough as the ones 
you fight right after you come out the elevator.

If you SAVE EVERYONE in your game, then you will turn right and enter the 
bonus room, there are THREE LIVES and some treasures there. If not, then you 
will go straight.

After you climb upstairs, open a huge door-Goldman is right in front of 
you!!!

Boss: Emperor Type Alpha

Weak Spot: The red energy core.

Attack-

Energy sword slash: used when he has more than 2/3 of his vitality.

Energy ball shots: Shoot four energy balls constantly, used when he has more 
than 2/3 of his vitality.

Mega shot: Shoot four energy balls together, used when he has more than 2/3 
of his vitality.

Judgment Transformation: All the energy balls transform to Judgment. Used 
when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3

Hyprophant Transformation: All energy balls transform to Hyprophant. Used 
when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3

Tower Transformation: All energy balls transform to Tower's main head. Used 
when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3

Strength Transformation: All energy balls transform to Strength. Used when 
Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3

Dooms Day: Emperor is vanished and only his red core is shown. All the 
energy balls moves around and protect Emperor's core. Emperor will move 
toward to James slowly and tackle James. Used when Emperor's vitality is 
below 1/3.

Your goal: Defeat him and survive with all you got. A veteran player could 
finish Emperor with zero to two lives losing.

Goldman has made a stupid theory that claims the current nature system has 
made human commit the original sin, and he just made a new ruler of the 
earth-The Emperor, to rule the world and terminate all the human beings. 

Well, it is funny that the ruler of the world can't even defeat a mere agent 
with leather shoes and tuxedo, what a shame.

After battle starts, try to defend yourself as much as you can, shoot 
Emperor's energy balls down before they can hit you. If you see emperor is 
about to use sword wave, shoot the middle of the screen, his core will hit 
your bullet before he can reach you. However, if you DO let him reach you, 
don't worry, you can still hit his core when he is raising his energy sword, 
that's his weakest moment, just like Strength.

Try to bring his vitality down to as close to 2/3 as you can, DO NOT GO 
BELOW!!! He will use his second phase attack if his vitality is below 2/3, 
his transformation attacks are crazy, and his defense will be insanely high 
as well.

Wait 'till Emperor uses mega shot. When he fires four energy balls, he will 
stand there still 'till the balls reach you. Do not bother with shooting the 
balls down, aim Emperor's core now and shoot it like crazy!!! You can bring 
his vitality below 1/2 this way, and I assume it is possible to avoid his 
second phase attack if you are quick enough. In most of my games, Emperor 
could only attack around 6~7 times during his second phase attack. You can 
shoot the balls down when they are VERY close to you, and if you are hit 
here, let it go, it worth using a life here.

During the second phase, Emperor's heart is not shown, you can damage 
Emperor VERY LITTLE each time you block Emperor's transformation attack 
successfully. 

Consider you are lucky if Emperor abuses Judgment and Hyprophant attack, 
because those two are the easiest ones to block, just use the tips you used 
to defeat Judgment and Hyprophant you will be fine. You have to watch 
carefully when Emperor is doing Judgment transformation attack, because it 
will be MUCH closer than the battle you fought the real Judgment, and you 
will have less time to react.

Tip from Master Chen: When Emperor is using Hyprophant transformation 
attack, his heart will show up RIGHT AFTER Hyprophant Jumps up, you can 
shoot his core for more extra damage at this point.

When Emperor uses Tower Transformation attack, shoot the head VERY QUICKLY 
and hope the quick fire could block the head before it can even move.

When Emperor uses Strength Transformation attack, shoot the head right 
before if raises its chain saw. The head is MUCH SMALLER than the real 
Strength's head, so skill is much required.

After you bring Emperor's Hp below 1/3, Emperor starts to use the Dooms Day 
attack, actually it is very easy to block because Emperor moves very slow, 
although his energy balls are protecting his, if you aim it well and fire 
SLOWLY, you can shoot Emperor down before he can reach you-don't be too fast 
here, the faster you shoot, the less accuracy you have. Emperor's defense is 
not very high during his final form.

IV. Frequently asked questions:

Q: Is it possible to get a six digits score?

A: From what I have heard, yes, it is possible. I don't know how, though. 
But one thing I can sure about is that the "perfect path" (means you saved 
everyone) is NOT going to bring you the best score. Just because you get 
into the bonus room does not ensure the highest score. You have to find a 
path that you could actually save more people and kill more monsters. 

Q: How can I get the Roger ending?

A: Score higher than 80,000, and beat the game without any continue. 
Actually, consider you are weak if you beat the one credit game and cannot 
get more than 80,000 points.

Q: What will happen if you DON'T SAVE anyone in the game???

A: I have tried this before, nothing special happened. 

Q: Where did they get those bosses names?

A: All bosses in The House of Dead games are named with characters on Tarot 
Cards.
