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.

 the hardest in the world, but certainly innovate in ways and
 refreshing familiar in others.

 \ 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,
