    I. Introduction
    Hello all.  This is my first ever guide, so bear with me.  I noticed that most Walkthroughs 
    are very generalized, in order to keep spoilers to a minimum, and I respect that.  But I 
    thought that there might be others out there like me, who want a little more to go along 
    with the "turn here, push that" approach, and who might like a synopsis of the game's 
    events to go along with the directions.  This is not meant to ruin anything for someone 
    who has not played the game before, and as such I try not to blurt out surprises as they 
    happen, but rather to describe them after they happen, to keep events in context.  Thus I 
    won't say "Turn here to see a little girl beaten to death with a hammer", but rather "Turn 
    here for a nasty surprise.  That lovely gentleman is known as Sledgehammer, and he 
    seems to have something against little girls".   Honestly, if you don't want Spoilers, than 
    you should never read ahead in a Walkthrough.  Clock Tower 3 is somewhat linear, and 
    so I am going to assume that if you are reading a Walkthrough it is for a way to find the 
    best path, and the best strategies to get through the game with a minimal effort.  And that, 
    my friend, I can promise you.  In fact, if you follow this guide to the smallest nuance, it is 
    entirely possible to get through the entire game without using any of your support items, 
    and with no unnecessary backtracking.  I try to keep the proceedings clear, and 
    summarize the story and action a concisely as possible, while still reiterating that which 
    is important.  There is a lot of detail in this game, and a lot of threads running through the 
    story, and aside from giving directions, I feel that it is my job in this guide to help 
    highlight them and keep them straight.  So again, I reiterate; if you are looking for a 
    simple verbal map to get through the game, with a minimum of exposition, there are 
    guides better suited to your needs.  However, if you are looking for a complete resource 
    on the game, covering the characters, setting, story and systems, in addition to a simple 
    walkthrough, than you have come to the right place.  That being said…
    Clock Tower 3 was released in North America on March 18, 2003 by Capcom, and was 
    developed by Sunsoft.  The previous two games in the series, Clock Tower and Clock 
    Tower 2: The Struggle Within were developed by Human Entertainment and published 
    by ASCII Entertainment and Agetec Incorporated, respectively.  Furthermore, the game 
    called Clock Tower here in North America is actually the second game in the series in 
    Japan, the first being released originally for the Super Famicom and then for the 
    Playstation as Clock Tower: First Fear, but only in Japan.  That means that Clock Tower 
    2 (called Clock Tower: Ghost Head in Japan) is actually Clock Tower 3, and this game is 
    Clock Tower 4…but don't worry about that, because we don't live in Japan.  This game 
    bears but a few things in common with the original games in the series, as they were both 
    more "point-and-click" type adventures, while Clock Tower 3 has more action.  Capcom 
    leaned towards this style of game play in hopes of drawing in a larger audience, and I 
    must say that I feel that it has made the series more accessible, without sacrificing the 
    tone and feel of the series.  What Clock Tower 3 does share with the rest of the series is 
    an alternative to the guns blazing commando style of other survival horror games (most 
    of which I love, don't get me wrong).  Instead it focuses on really surviving, which is to 
    say avoiding confrontation and injury my hiding from and evading one's pursuers, while 
    trying to unravel a mystery. The Clock Tower series has also always had a helpless but 
    brave young girl as the hero.   In addition, this game does have an incarnation of 
    Scissorman, though he is much different from the menacing antagonist of the previous 
    games.  Also, the name Alyssa was used for the protagonist of Clock Tower 2 in North 
    America (it was Yutaka in Japan, for those who are interested).  That is where the 
    similarities end, however (at least that I can think of; please feel free to educate me if I 
    miss other similarities), as this series took on a new look and a new direction under 
    Capcom.  The most important of these changes are having multiple killers pursuing you 
    instead of just one main one, and the ability to fight back against these pursuers at the end 
    of each Chapter.  And now on to the game itself…
    a. The Players 
    -1. Alyssa Hamilton
    Alyssa is the main character in the game.  She was sent away to boarding school when 
    she was twelve, and told she couldn't come back for six years.  Now she is fourteen 
    (almost fifteen), and is disturbed when she receives a letter from her mother telling her 
    not to come home until her fifteenth birthday has passed.  Alyssa calls home but no one 
    answers, so Alyssa, like any teenage girl, ignores her  mother's wishes and rushes home 
    in hopes of figuring out what is going on…
    -2. Nancy Hamilton
    Alyssa's mother.  Her reasons for sending Alyssa away so abruptly are unknown, but she 
    remains steadfast in her decision.  Nancy and her daughter are very close, which makes 
    her behavior that much more confusing…
    -3. Dick Hamilton
    Nancy's father, Dick, has been like a father to Alyssa all of her life, since she never knew 
    her real father.  Three years ago he left without explanation, and has not been heard from 
    since.  His disappearance saddens and hurts Alyssa, and she waits anxiously for his 
    -4. Philip Hamilton
    Philip was Alyssa's father, who died tragically in an accident when she was just a baby.  
    Alyssa has no recollection of her father whatsoever.  
    -5. The Dark Man
    This black garbed and enigmatic stranger is the only person at the house when Alyssa 
    returns.  At first, Alyssa thinks he is one of her mother's boarders, but he seems to know 
    more about Alyssa and the house than she is comfortable with…
    -6. Dennis
    This redheaded scamp is a friend of Alyssa's from grade school.  He seems to have a bit 
    of a crush on her…
    -7. Linda 
    Linda is Dennis' sister, a missionary nurse who has raised Dennis since he was a little 
    boy.  She is currently in Africa, working as a relief worker.
    b. The "Arsenal"
    Alyssa has a few (a very few) support items that she can do to aid her in survival 
    throughout the game.  
    -1. Holy Water
    That's some high quality H20! Holy Water is your single most valuable resource in the 
    game.  At the beginning you will only be able to carry a few doses of it at a time, but as 
    your proceed through the game, you will gain the ability to carry more.  But what can it 
    do, you ask?  Well, it can unlock doors marked with a glowing blue sigil.  It can activate 
    the transportation runes known as Portal Squares.  And, more importantly, it can fend off 
    and stun attackers, be they Subordinates, Minions, or Spirits.  When you hit the attack 
    button (the triangle button is the default) Alyssa will throw a dose of Holy Water in a 
    short arch ahead of her, stunning any enemies caught by the splash so that she has time to 
    make her escape.  Since this valuable commodity is so important, you will want to refill 
    any time you see a Holy Water reservoir jar (you can tell which jars these are because 
    they glow) or at a Lion's Head Fountain.  Never leave home without it.
    -2. Lavender Water
    Lavender Water is a throwback to earlier centuries, when nobles would carry scented 
    kerchiefs or other perfumed objects to fend off noxious odors and revitalize themselves 
    when faint.  Sissies.  Anyway, Lavender Water is an extract made from the purple 
    lavender flowers, which gives of a clean, pleasing odor.  Alyssa, the little noble that she 
    is, uses the scent of Lavender Water to bring her back from the edge of panic when attack 
    from enemies threatens to push her over the edge.  It seemed like a better choice than 
    Bourbon to give to fourteen year old girl.  Like all support items, it is a rare commodity, 
    and should only be used to bring Alyssa back from a full-blown panic, or to keep her 
    from going into a full blown panic when hiding, because that causes her to burst from her 
    hiding place. 
    -3. Sigil Stones
    These crystals will protect Alyssa from one killing blow.  They are used automatically 
    when an attack or event would kill Alyssa outright, such as when getting hit while in a 
    full panic or hit by the automated axes in Chapter Four. You will know when they are 
    used because there will be the sound of the crystal breaking and a blue flash of light.   
    Note that they cannot be used in  boss battles (unfortunately), nor will they keep you 
    from dying if you fall from the plank in the Concert Hall in Chapter One.
    -4. Invisibility Bands
    What has it gots in its nasssty little pocketses?  These handy little items will turn Alyssa 
    invisible for a short time, keeping Subordinates and their Minions from finding her out.  
    These a pretty rare, and should only be used if you absolutely need to slip past a lurking 
    assailant, or if you need a few extra seconds head start to make it to a hide or evade point.
    -5. Other (non-support) Items
    All other items that you find it the game will be either Key Items (such as the keys, the 
    Looking Glass, or the Sacred Bottle), Documents (that give you another piece of the 
    story),  or Sentimental Items for setting restless Spirits free (such as a Teddy Bear or an 
    Engagement Ring).  Key Items  are used automatically as the situation arises, such as 
    opening a door to use a key.  Sentimental Items must be used on the bodies of specific 
    Spirits, and will be covered under the section on Spirits, below.
    c. Freaking Out
    In the top right corner of the screen is the Panic Meter, and when Alyssa feels threatened, 
    such as when someone is trying to maul or kill her, her Panic Meter raises.  When she 
    feels very threatened, such as when a Subordinate jumps out of hiding and knocks her on 
    her ass, the Panic Meter raises a lot.   If it fills up entirely, Alyssa will go into full out 
    panic, and begin to act erratically.  The camera gets all screwed up, your field of vision 
    narrows, Alyssa stumbles while trying to run away, can't use Holy Water to protect 
    herself, and will even just stop and tremble instead of trying to get away.  You can lower 
    Alyssa's panic level by getting her out of the stressful situations and into hiding, by 
    escaping her pursuers, or by using Lavender Water.  Note that even while Alyssa is in a 
    hiding spot, if a Subordinate is sniffing around close to her hiding spot, her Panic Meter 
    will raise.  If it is really high to begin with, and this is enough to push her over the edge 
    into a full panic, Alyssa will burst from her hiding spot and directly into danger, so use a 
    Lavender Water if she is on the very edge and an enemy is near her hiding place.  
    d. The Big Bads
    Each level has a possessed and deadly killer stalking it, in addition to restless Spirits.  
    This killer is called a Subordinate, and the force possessing them is called an Entity.  The 
    Entity governing the Subordinate grants its host immortality, and gets its power from the 
    trapped souls of the victims of the killer.  The souls of those killed are trapped on earth 
    by something in their lives left unfinished, and it is up to Alyssa to find the Sentimental 
    Items that will give them the strength to move on, thus robbing the Subordinates of their 
    power source. Subordinates are relentless and nearly impossible to kill, and even if you 
    manage to lose them, they will soon be back.  Subordinates show up at pre-scripted 
    moments, after a certain amount of time has passed, when Alyssa runs into their moth-
    like Minions, or when Alyssa makes a racket by kicking or knocking over certain objects, 
    such as cans, pots and pans, and bottles, among other things.  Once the Subordinate is on 
    to you, the only way to get rid of them is to use Hide or Evade Points (covered below).  
    You can render yourself invisible to Subordinates and their Minions for a short time by 
    using an Invisibility Band, and you can stun a Subordinate temporarily or destroy their 
    Minions with a dose of Holy Water.  The only way to get rid of a Subordinate entirely is 
    to find a Sentimental Object belonging to the trapped souls that are powering them, and 
    then engage the Subordinate in a final Boss Battle (also covered below).   
    e. Run Away!!!
    Until Alyssa finds the Sentimental Item for the level and can face the Subordinate in 
    battle, she will have to settle for running away and hiding.  There are areas in the game 
    set aside as Hide and Evade points, where you can find a few minutes of respite from the 
    killer's relentless pursuit.  There are usually one or two Hide Points in a level, and these 
    areas can be used over and over to hide from the Subordinate.  They are usually a fairly 
    small and secure place, such as in a locker, behind a curtain, behind an aquarium, and so 
    on.  When you are being pursued, Hide Points are marked by a ball of greenish-blue 
    energy, and activate as soon as you run into them.  You will automatically pull the curtain 
    or door (or whatever) shut behind you and find a few moments of safety as the 
    Subordinate looks for you (even if they were right on your heels and saw you run into the 
    Hide Point).  If the Subordinate searches near your hiding spot, Alyssa starts to get 
    nervous, and her Panic Meter will fill a little bit.  If the meter was almost full to begin 
    with, Alyssa can go into a full-blown panic and burst from her hiding spot, as you can't 
    use a Hide Point when you are in a full panic.  This is the only way that you will be in 
    danger from a Subordinate while in hiding, because they can't open the hiding place and 
    find you themselves.  Lavender Water can be used while in hiding if necessary if full 
    panic is immanent.  To leave a hiding space when it is safe, simply hit the search button 
    (the X button is the default).  
    Evade Points are something altogether different.  They glow similarly to a Hide Point 
    when you are being pursued, but Evade Points can be used only once.  Furthermore, if the 
    Subordinate is right on your heels, you will not be able to use the Evade Point.  The good 
    thing about Evade Points is that that they will get rid of a Subordinate right away, and 
    keep him out of your hair for a few minutes.  You see, Evade Points are used to 
    temporarily incapacitate, rather than hide from, the Subordinate.  An example of an evade 
    point would be a cable sitting in a puddle of water, which is attached to a power switch 
    (which is where the Evade Point is located).  Throw the switch, and when the 
    Subordinate runs into the puddle of water, he will be electrocuted, temporarily 
    incapacitating him.  You would be wise to use the time that you have bought wisely, 
    since you won't get to do it again.  
    f. The Little Bads
    In addition to the Subordinates, there are other, lesser threats that Alyssa must deal with.  
    The least common are the Minions of the Subordinates, in the form of 
    purplish-blue lunar moths.  The inhabit certain areas, and head straight for Alyssa when 
    she arrives in the areas they inhabit.  Their touch causes Alyssa's panic meter to rise, but 
    worse, it summons the Subordinate for the area.  To keep them from reporting her 
    position to their master, Alyssa must destroy the Minions with a dash of Holy Water, or 
    escape the area they inhabit without letting them get near her.
    The second, and more common lesser enemies are the restless Spirits of those slain by the 
    Subordinates.  They stay close to their earthly bodies, hurt and alone, lashing out at any 
    who come near.  They will pursue Alyssa if she comes too close to them, and if they latch 
    on to her, her Panic Meter will begin to fill, so staying away from them is a good idea.  
    They are bound to the earth by things left undone or unsaid, and can only be gotten rid of 
    by helping them come to terms with this unfinished business, by bringing them the items 
    that symbolize the business they left unfinished.  An example of this would be giving a 
    missing engagement ring back to a Spirit who died before he was able to give it to his 
    sweet-heart, or a fountain pen to a Spirit who died before finishing a final note to their 
    loved ones.  Each Spirit has a specific item needed to free it, and once you have returned 
    to their body and offered the item, the Spirit will dissipate, bothering the living no more.  
    In addition, they will leave behind a useful item for Alyssa to use, in thanks for her help 
    in freeing them.  This is just like the Sentimental Items needed to free the greater Spirits 
    that are powering the Subordinate for the area, which is necessary to complete a level, but 
    on a smaller scale.  
    g. The Smackdown
    Once the Sentimental Item belonging to the greater Spirits whose misery is powering  the 
    level's Subordinate is found, Alyssa gains the power to face off against the Subordinate 
    in battle, using a divine bow and arrow.  The Subordinate will try to stop you from 
    reaching the greater Spirits, knowing that if you free them, the Subordinate's power will 
    dwindle.  When they do so, a Boss Battle will begin, in which Alyssa must fight damage 
    her attacker while at the same time dodging his attacks.  Attacking with the bow is 
    accomplished by pressing and holding the attack button (the triangle button is the 
    default), and then releasing it to fire an arrow.  The longer you hold the attack button, the 
    more powerful the arrow will be.    
    The trick to boss battles is not just to pound them with arrows until they keel over.  This 
    doesn't work so well.  Instead, you need to transfix them, which means hitting them with 
    super-charged arrows that pin them to the spot with glowing chains.  You need to transfix 
    the enemy with three glowing chains, from three different trajectories before you can 
    unleash a devastating attack that will finish them off.  Unfortunately this isn't as easy as 
    it sounds.  It takes time to charge up an arrow long enough for it to form a golden chain 
    upon impact, and at the same time the Subordinate will be trying to kill you.  
    Furthermore, you can't charge up an attack when moving, or adjust the trajectory of your 
    shot once you begin to hold down the attack button.  So what this means is running 
    around until your enemy is stunned or slowed, and then charging your arrow and nailing 
    him while he is distracted.  Once the enemy is bound by one golden chain, it becomes 
    easier to hit him with the next.  Unfortunately you can't just stand in one spot and nail 
    them with binding shots while they pinned.  The binding chains need to criss-cross your 
    enemy in order to hold him well enough to hit him with your final attack.  This means 
    that you will need to move at least forty-five degrees to one side of your last shot or the 
    other in order for the next binding shot to do its job.  Once the Subordinate is pinned by 
    three chains, from three different directions, simply hold down your normal attack button.  
    If the enemy is properly bound, Alyssa will unleash a devastating celestial attack that 
    does quite a bit of damage.  Some of the more powerful Subordinates will need more than 
    just this attack to finish them, but if you weaken them earlier in the battle with regular 
    attacks, this strike should finish them for good.
    In addition, there are two kinds of Special Arrows that you can collect; green Repellant 
    Arrows and red Binding Arrows.  Repellant Arrows do heap-big damage and knock your 
    enemy back a few steps.  Binding Arrows act as though they were a super-charged 
    regular arrow, and attach one golden chain to bind the Subordinate to the spot.  However, 
    all Special Arrows are a rare commodity, and should be saved for the last boss battle of 
    the game.  Trust me.  This was a public service announcement.  Ignore at your own risk.  
    II. Clock Tower 3 Walkthrough
    For the purposes of this guide, when I say, for example, turn left, I mean Alyssa's left as 
    she is oriented on the screen. Thus, what is left when coming from one direction will 
    become right when she is coming from the opposite direction.  When I say "head towards 
    the left-hand side of the room", I mean your left, the player's, meaning towards the left-
    hand side of the television screen.  If I say towards the front or back of the room, I mean 
    closer or further away from the "camera", or the screen (even though it is two 
    dimensional, you know what I mean).  If I say a direction, such as north, west, or north-
    east, I mean in relationship to the map in the inventory screen.  These maps are not 
    oriented to the directions, although it would have been nice if they were, so the directions 
    simply refer to what WOULD be north, south, whatever if you consider the top of the 
    screen north and the bottom south.  An actual compass or a icon showing you where you 
    are on the map would have been nice, and made writing this guide a lot easier, but I did 
    my best. And now, to the game.
    -a. Chapter One- "Please Hammer, Don't Hurt 'Em"
    -1. Prologue
    The game starts by showing you a cutscene setting things up; Alyssa Hamilton receives a 
    note from her mother at boarding school, telling Alyssa that she is in terrible danger, and 
    to stay away from home until after her fifteenth birthday has passed.  Like a dutiful 
    daughter, she runs home, but finds that no one is home except for a creepy old man who 
    knows too much about Alyssa to make her comfortable, who then disappears into the 
    house.  After the opening cutscene, Alyssa is left alone in the dining room.  There are no 
    items or clues here, but feel free to search the area;  certain areas such as the chair the 
    Dark Man was sitting in or the fireplace will give you short text descriptions when you 
    search near them.  When you are done, exit through the only door in the room.  You are 
    now in the main hall of Alyssa's house.  Pressing start will bring up the inventory 
    window, which should be empty.  However, the top right corner of the screen tells you 
    your current location, in this case "Guest Wing (1 FL)" which means, of course, the first 
    floor in the guest wing.  As for why Alyssa is looking for her mom in the guest wing of 
    the house is a mystery that is never solved.  Regardless, in addition to the door to the 
    room that you just exited, there should be three more doors and a staircase.  In addition, 
    there is a glowing table with a journal on it in the south west corner of the room, which 
    can be used to save your game, and a glowing table with a large vase on it in the south 
    east corner of the room, which can be used to refill your container of Holy Water, once 
    you receive it.  The doors in the middle of the southern wall lead outside, but you will 
    never get the opportunity to use them.  The doors on the east wall also do not open, and 
    you never get to find out where they go.  The doors on the north wall, almost behind the 
    stairs, lead deeper into the guest quarters, but the doors beyond them are locked for the 
    time being, so for the moment disregard them.  That just leaves the stairs, so climb them 
    when you are done looking around.
    This is the Guest Wing Second Floor.  At the top of the stairs is a balcony overlooking 
    the main entry hall below, with three doors leading off from it.  The one directly in front 
    of the stairs, on the north wall,  is unmarked and leads deeper into the house.  The door 
    on the west wall cannot be opened, and bears a plaque reading "Philip".  Later on in the 
    game we will find that Philip was Alyssa's father.  As to why he kept a room separate 
    from Nancy's is another mystery that will not be solved.  The door on the east wall has a 
    plaque that reads "Alyssa", and is (you guessed it) Alyssa's room.  This is where we will 
     Enter Alyssa's room and take a look around.  Gather in as many details as you 
    can.  They are not really important, but later in the game certain objects and elements 
    from Alyssa's room pop up here and there, and these details add some depth and 
    continuity to the proceedings.  In the north west corner of this room is a desk with a 
    television, a stuffed animal, and a glittering object.  Search the glittering object to receive 
    your first useable item, the Lavender Water.  Notice that the television doesn't seem to be 
    working…how odd.    On the west wall, between the desk and the door that you came in 
    through, is a locked armoire.  Don't bother searching for the key if this is your first time 
    through the game, as you can only get the key to the wardrobe after beating the game 
    once.  For more information, see the section marked "Secrets and Mysteries" after the 
    walkthrough.  There is another desk on the east wall, but there is nothing really 
    interesting about it.  You would think that Alyssa would want to put on some jeans or 
    something, rather than run around in her school mini-skirt and blazer, but hey, to each 
    their own (when you can change her outfit, in the clear game, none of the other outfits are 
    any more appropriate for exploring; maybe she doesn't own any jeans).  Exit through the 
    door on the north wall.
    This area appears to be some kind of lounge, with a cozy little table and a couple of 
    chairs sitting in front of a roaring fire.  If you turn around and look at the door that you 
    just came through, you will notice that there is a plaque on this door to Alyssa's room as 
    well, just so you don't get lost.  In addition to this there is a door at the end of the hallway 
    next to the fireplace, leading north, which will never open and apparently goes into the 
    lodgers' quarters.  Down the hallway to the west are two doors; the one on the south wall 
    is the other side of the unmarked door at the top of the stairs, while the one on the west 
    wall is covered by a funky glowing blue sigil.  Though it usually seems like a bad idea to 
    touch doors covered in glowing mystical runes, do so now for a little surprise and a mini-
    tutorial on Panic.  Don't worry, panic subsides rather quickly if you are not being chased, 
    so don't waste your Lavender Water.  Since you can't get past this door, head back down 
    the hallway.  As you re-enter the lounge, a secret crawlspace through the fireplace is 
    revealed.  Don't worry about burning Alyssa's bare knees, and crawl through the 
    fireplace into the previously hidden room.
    As you crawl through, you are treated to a rather disturbing little cutscene.  At its 
    conclusion, walk towards the broken statue and search the broken noggin for the Sacred 
    Bottle of Holy Water and a note from your dear old mum that is full of all kinds of useful 
    mother-daughter advice on exorcism and redeeming the dead.  Once you finish reading 
    this heart-warming missive, you can look at the statue, which tells you that it is the patron 
    saint of the Hamilton house.  There is nothing else to do here, so crawl back out through 
    the fireplace.  Go back down the westward hallway to the sigil-marked door, get fairly 
    close to it, and tap the triangle button to douse it with Holy Water.  This permanently 
    breaks the seal on the door, so you never have to worry about wasting holy water 
    breaking the same seal twice.  However, since Holy Water is such a rare commodity at 
    this point in the game, and you never know when you will need it, you may want to go 
    back downstairs real quick and refill at the jar in the south-east corner of the main hall 
    before continuing.  Once this is has accomplished, return to the upstairs and enter through 
    the newly unsealed door.
    This area has three doors, but the one in the north-east corner of the room is boarded up, 
    and a search of it tells us Alyssa can never remember it being opened.  The door next to it 
    on the north wall has a sigil mark on it, but the sigil is not glowing.  If you try to open the 
    door, you will find it is…occupied.  Don't bother using Holy Water on this door, because 
    it doesn't do anything at this time.  Follow the hallway to the west; it turns north and 
    terminates in a door marked with a plaque that reads "Nancy".  This is Alyssa's mother's 
    There is an object glittering on the desk in the middle of the room, but don't look at it yet, 
    as it triggers a cutscene so that you can't look around the rest of the room.  A hasty search 
    reveals little, except that she left in a hurry.  There is a clock in the north-west corner of 
    the room that has stopped, and you are told you will need the winding keys to get it going 
    again.  Unsurprisingly, there are none handy.  Once you have searched the rest of the 
    room to your heart's content, check out the glittering item on the desk in the middle of 
    the room.    It is a picture of Alyssa, her mother Nancy, and her grandfather, Dick.  
    Another creepy little cutscene follows, after which Alyssa will find herself in a strange 
    -2. A Little Night Music
    Alyssa is in a strange hallway, facing a door that is sealed.  Head down the hallway 
    towards the camera (south),  until Alyssa reaches a barred door at the end, which she will 
    automatically open, triggering another impressive cutscene.  Apparently, London is being 
    bombed.  When you have control of Alyssa again, you find yourself in a stairwell across 
    from the barred door that you came through, which will no longer open. A quick check of 
    your map tells you that this area is called High Street.  The stairwell that you ended the 
    cutscene is simply one end of a tiny little tunnel that goes under another very short set of 
    stairs that leads up to a locked door on the south wall of this area.  Opposite this, on the 
    north wall, is an identical short and rather pointless tunnel that goes under the street for a 
    few paces.  At the western end of this little tunnel, there is a flyer hanging on a brick wall 
    facing the mouth of the tunnel.  It reads "Christmas Eve, 1942: 15th Annual Piano 
    Concours".  This is where, or rather when, you are; London 1942.  Well, at least that 
    explains all the bombing going on.  Directly south of the flyer, only a few feet away, are 
    some cans lying in the street, a phone booth, and a trail of blood leading to a corpse a 
    short distance to the west.  The cans are items that can be kicked or disturbed if you walk 
    into them.  This isn't a problem right now, but it is not a good idea once you meet the 
    first Entity; stumbling into objects like these will bring him running.  The door to the 
    phone booth is being held shut by something at the moment.  Follow the smear of blood 
    westward, and another cutscene will start.  You get to meet your first Spirit, and these 
    one seems pretty keen on getting its ring back.  This is pretty indicative of most Spirits 
    who you encounter; each one will have a clue near its corpse hinting at what Sentimental 
    Item will be needed to set it free.  In this case, it flat out tells you it wants its damn ring.  
    Avoid contact with this and all Spirits, as they will latch onto Alyssa and cause her Panic 
    Meter to rise. If Spirits get too close, Alyssa can stun them with a hit from the ol' Holy 
    Water.   Now that the door to the phone booth is open, run inside and search the shelf for 
    the ring and a short tutorial on Spirits and Sentimental Items.  Having found it, run back 
    to the corpse, press start to bring up your inventory, and select the ring.  The Spirit can 
    now shuffle off this mortal coil, and in thanks leaves an item for Alyssa to use.  After the 
    Spirit is free, search near its body for a glittering item, in this case the Sigil Stone.  A 
    Sigil Stone is an object that will protect you from one lethal blow, automatically.  So all 
    in all, it isn't a bad tradeoff.  Continue on your merry way, and you will find that the path 
    turns sharply south, past a Lion's Head Fountain.  Lion's Head Fountains are handy little 
    stations where you can save and refill your Holy Water.  I suggest doing both here, and 
    saving as often as possible throughout the course of the game.  Trust me, this will save 
    you a lot of backtracking if you get killed.  After saving and refilling here, continue 
    south, easing around the cans in the middle of the path between the two barrels.  This 
    path terminates with a Sigil Marked door on your right (if you look at your map, it would 
    be north, but this doesn't really jive with the directions on the map of the area that you 
    just came through) and a dead end cliff overlooking a concert hall, which seems to be the 
    source of the mysterious piano music that has been playing since you arrived.  Splash the 
    door with Holy Water, refill at the Lion's Head Fountain, and then go through the newly 
    un-sealed door, which leads down some steps.
    Go ALL the way down the steps until you reach the street below.  The map says this area 
    is called The Promenade.   The road goes to the west, but notice another set of stairs 
    across from you leading down to the edge of the river.  Go down these steps and head 
    west, and you should pass by a Spirit on the main street above.  Search the ground near 
    here for a glittering object, which turns out to be a gold fountain pen, then continue west 
    until you reach another set of stair which brings you back up to street-level.  Head back to 
    the east on the main street, towards the Spirit.  You should find a bloody chalk outline in 
    the middle of the road, in front of a bunch of tables, with a half-finished letter nearby.  
    Use the gold fountain pen so that the Spirit can finish its letter and move on, and you will 
    be rewarded with an Invisibility Band, which renders you invisible to Entities and Spirits 
    for a short amount of time when used.  Continue on to the west, under a tall underpass.  
    Coming out the other side, there should be another staircase leading down towards the 
    river to your left.  Don't bother going down this first staircase, but instead continue to the 
    west, past the bridge leading south on your left and the sigil marked door to the Norton's 
    Tailor on your right, until you see huge steel gate blocking the path to the west, and 
    another stairway leading down next to the river on your left.  Go down to the river and 
    back towards the east until you are smack against the side of the bridge; there should be a 
    glittering item at your feet.  Search to find another Lavender Water, then go back up to 
    the street and splash the Sigil marked door with some Holy H2O.  If you are the cautious 
    type you can safely cross the bridge and use the Lion's Head Fountain on the other side, 
    to the left of the archway, to refill and save.  Either way, you should return to Norton's 
    Tailor and go through the now un-sealed door to continue.
    There is a staircase to the left of the main door as you enter in the center of the room is a 
    broken display case, and behind that is a tall counter.  A quick search of the counter itself 
    tells us that someone has been rummaging around the counter. Search the far right side of 
    the counter for another Lavender Water.  Follow the counter to the left, and you will find 
    a curtained area in the corner.  If you enter this area, the curtain closes and it switches to 
    first person view.  This is a hiding space.  Remember it, as you will have to use it once 
    you meet the first Entity.  Just south of the hiding space is a desk with a document 
    entitled "Dad's Letter" on it.  The letter is addressed to someone named May, and says 
    that that the author is in Champagne, France, and that they should go there on vacation 
    after the war is over, implying that he is in the military, and stationed in France.  He 
    mentions the organized blackouts in London (which were used to make the Germans' job 
    of bombing them that much harder), and his concern for May being alone at night.  He 
    signs it "With love, Daddy".  Behind the desk, on the west wall, is a door, but it is locked 
    from the other side.  There is a Christmas Tree in front of the desk, which leads May to 
    speculate that today must be Christmas.  Since there is nothing else of interest down here, 
    climb the stairs to the second floor landing.  
    On the east wall, at the top of the stairs, is a window that has been broken inward, and the 
    glass crunches underfoot as you climb the stairs.  Follow the balcony around to the west, 
    where there are two doors on the west wall.  The one closest to the stairs opens up into a 
    short hallway with a Sigil Marked Door at the end.  Break the seal with some Holy 
    Water, and then go through.  It leads into someone's bedroom.  The bookcase is filled 
    with the classics, and all the records are old.  Now whether that means that the books and 
    the records are from the 1940's, and they are old by Alyssa's standards (especially if she 
    hasn't figured out that she is in 1942 yet), or if they are even older than the 1940's is 
    unclear.  Be careful searching the shelf near the record player, as the watering can can be 
    knocked to the floor with a clatter.  There is a strong fire in the fireplace, which indicates 
    someone has been there recently.  And finally, on the nightstand next to the bed, is a 
    photograph of the owner of the house, with a key next to it.  This is the Red Drawer Key.  
    Seeing as how there are no red drawers in this room, it seems it is time to search the other 
    door on the second floor landing.  Backtrack to the landing at the top of the stairs, and 
    enter the door in the south-west corner, the only other door in this area.  
    There is a short hallway, with a door on your right at the top of a flight of stairs.  Notice 
    the blood on the wall opposite the door, and on the stairs themselves.  The door is locked, 
    so continue down the stairs.  This is where things start to get ugly.  This room has also 
    been trashed.  There is a small desk in the middle of the room towards the northern 
    portion of the room, and a "L" shaped desk to the south of this, part of which is covered 
    with newspapers.  Next to the L-shaped desk is a red filing cabinet.  Moving towards this 
    desk causes Alyssa to move closer on her own and begin to read the newspapers, which 
    tell you of 12 year old May Norton, a young pianist who was murdered on Christmas day, 
    1942.  She had played at the concert hall the night before, and was living by herself 
    because her father, William Norton had been sent back to the war front in July.  Damn.  
    Making a twelve year old girl live by herself in London during the war?  That is just 
    asking for trouble, or at the very least, severe therapy.  Regardless, finish reading the 
    article for a rather horrible surprise.  This is your first Subordinate, a happy little fellow 
    who goes by the name Sledgehammer, for obvious reasons.  Following the cutscene you 
    will get a short tutorial about Evade and Hide points.  Once done reading this, you will 
    find yourself directly in front of the red file cabinet.  Even though Sledgehammer is 
    breathing down your neck, quickly search the red file cabinet to use the Red Drawer Key, 
    which opens the cabinet a gives you May's Room Key.  This in hand, you must find a 
    way to escape the hammer-wielding maniac.  Heading south around the back side of the 
    L-shaped desk would lead you to a door that is sealed with barbed wire.  You are going to 
    need a special tool to open this door, so instead head north around the back side of the 
    smaller desk and go through the door behind it on the west wall.  This brings you back 
    into the front area of Norton's Tailor, through the door that was locked from the other 
    side earlier.  Remember the curtained area in the north-west corner of this room?  It 
    should be glowing now, which means it is a hiding spot.  Run into it, and the curtains will 
    automatically close, hiding you from your assailant.  Stay there until you see (or hear) 
    Sledgehammer teleport away and the chase music stops.  From this point forward he 
    never stays away for long, so quickly exit your hiding spot and run back up the stairs, 
    down the hallway to the door in the south-west corner that leads back into the area where 
    you first saw Sledgehammer.  The door that he had come bursting out of is May's room.  
    Use the key you got from the red filing cabinet and enter.  
    On a shelf next to the door is May's diary.  It doesn't say much, but shows May's 
    nervousness about her upcoming recital, and her wish to make her father proud.  The rest 
    of the room is trashed, but quickly take a look around, and then go over to the dresser, 
    where a glittering object shows.  It is an Invitation to the piano concert, just what you'll 
    need to enter the concert hall.  Of course, as soon as you find this, Sledgehammer finds 
    you and starts trying to beat down the door to get to you.  Don't panic; just turn around 
    and search the bottom half of the room for a glowing evade point.  Use it for a cool 
    cutscene showing Alyssa using the old noodle to evade her attacker.  Her attacker may be 
    down, but not permanently, so use this respite wisely.  Alyssa has everything she needs 
    from Norton's Tailor for the time being, so run down the stairs, around the back side of 
    the small desk, and go back through the door into the front room where the hide point is.  
    Run back through the front door and out into the street.  No matter how fast or slow you 
    do this, Sledgehammer comes bursting out of the Tailor's only a few steps behind you.  
    Now you have a choice; you can either shake him the easier (but longer) way, by running 
    back up to High Street, past the Lion's Head Fountain and into the phone booth where 
    you found the wedding ring, which is a hide point, or you can run as fast as you can 
    across the bridge to the Lion's Head Fountain on the other side, douse Sledgehammer 
    with Holy Water when he gets near, quickly refill, then run through the archway next to 
    the fountain and across the courtyard to the concert hall.  Once you get to the concert 
    hall, there is a cutscene as you enter, and your assailant will leave you alone for a while.  
    Regardless of which method you use to evade you assailant, chances are you will have to 
    use Holy Water to slow him down at least once, so before you enter the concert hall, 
    make sure you refill your Holy Water at the Lion's Head Fountain.  Don't worry too 
    much about saving, because there is a saving diary right inside the concert hall that is 
    more convenient.  By the way, you might have noticed that there are paths leading to the 
    left and the right by the Lion's Head Statue before you pass through the archway in front 
    of the concert hall courtyard.  Don't worry about these, as they both end in dead ends.  
    Same goes for the paths leading to the left and the right when you reach the large 
    fountain in the courtyard itself; keep going straight towards the concert hall, as there is 
    nothing to find to the left and right.
    Once inside the hall, cross the room to the diary on the front counter and save your game.  
    You can enter the area behind this counter, in which case you will find a wall of little 
    boxes locked with combinations; you are going to have to find the combination before 
    you can get at what is inside.  Go back around the counter.  You will notice that there is a 
    hallway that curves around to the northeast, and a hallway that curves around to the 
    northwest.  It doesn't matter which way you go, as they meet in the middle.  Any roped-
    off doors that you see cannot be accessed because they are "off limits".  It is good to 
    know that Alyssa follows the rules even when faced with supernatural hammer-wielding 
    serial killers and earth-bound restless Spirits.  For the sake of this guide, we will say you 
    take the left-hand side of the loop.  The first door you come across is roped off. 
     The second door you come to opens into actual concert hall proper, with a bunch of seats 
    taking up the main part of the room, and the stage dominating the north end.  On east wall 
    is a roped-off door, and there is another on the south wall, to the east of the door you just 
    came in through.  There is a door on the west wall that is currently locked.  For the time 
    being, let's turn our attention to the stage itself.  There is a set of stairs that lead up to the 
    stage on its west end, so head in that direction now.  The game will take over when you 
    get close enough, and treat you to a grisly cutscene.  Not only can May not get the damn 
    song right, but now Sledgehammer has returned to try to give you a seat right next to her 
    on the piano bench of the damned.  Luckily, it is easy enough to escape him this time.  
    There is a roped-off door on the east wall of the stage, which is useless and should be 
    ignored.  Instead, run towards the north-west corner of the stage, and you should be able 
    to slip behind the stage curtain.  For whatever reason, M.C. Hammer can't follow you 
    back here, so you will be safe until he goes away.  There is no glowing area that tells you 
    that it is a hiding space, but it works just the same.  While Sledgehammer is still running 
    around on the other side of the curtain, do your best to ignore him and head towards the 
    east, staying behind the curtain as you do so.  You will find a switch on the north wall in 
    the north-east corner of this area.  Flip the switch to traumatize yourself further, and 
    when the cutscene is over, search the body for a clue that more or less tells you the 
    combination to the safe on the wall behind the front desk.  The combination is BAD, 
    where each letter stands for a numerical value.  It gives you two works and their 
    numerical values to help you figure out the clue; 1014 = BABE, and 3403 = DEAD.  
    Thus, 1 = B, 0 = A, 4 = E, and 3 = D.  The only three letters we are interested in is B, A, 
    and D, so your combination is 103.  Make sure that you flip the switch again to raise the 
    section of catwalk, or else you are going to have to go out of your way to do so later.   If 
    the creepy music hasn't passed yet, wait for the sound of the creep teleporting away and 
    the end of the chase music, then run for the door you came in through.  If you run up the 
    center aisle through the seats, beware of a bottle in the middle of the path; if you kick 
    this, Sledgehammer will come running soon after.  Once you are on the path looping back 
    towards the front counter, don't go back the same way you came.  Turn to Alyssa's left 
    and run past two roped off doors, and you should see an object glittering on a narrow 
    shelf on Alyssa's left (east wall); this is more Lavender Water.  Now continue along the 
    loop back to the front counter.  Step behind it a search the rows of lockers to input your 
    newly acquired combination (103 for those with short attention spans), by pressing up or 
    down to change the digit's numerical value, and left or right to select which digit you are 
    inputting.  When the combination reads 103, press the action button to open the locker 
    and receive the Master Key.  I have been asked how Alyssa knew which one of the 
    sixteen lockers the combination referred to, as A) there was no locker number mentioned, 
    and B)the clue referred to a "Safe Combination", not "Locker Combination".  The answer 
    is, "Who cares?" Maybe she could see the key inside this particular locker and assumed it 
    was the one that she needed, or maybe it was just pure luck.  Move on.  Anyway, the 
    Master Key will open the front door (bet you didn't even know it was locked), and the 
    locked door on the west wall of the concert hall proper (the big room with the piano and 
    all the chairs).  Unless you are low on Holy Water, you shouldn't need to leave the 
    Concert Hall yet, so that leaves the locked door in the stage area.  If you are low, return to 
    the Lion's Head Fountain outside the Concert Hall courtyard, refill, and come back.  Now 
    you are ready to go on.  First, save your game at the front counter that you are standing 
    behind.  Then return to the large room with the stage in it, the only other room that you 
    have been able to access so far in the Concert Hall.  If you want to see bloody May play 
    some more, head up to the stage.  If Sledgehammer shows up before you open the door 
    on the west wall, hide behind the curtain until he goes away.  Regardless, when the coast 
    is clear, head through the door on the west wall.  
    There is a door to your right (north) and a door to your left (south); first head to the left 
    and go through the double doors at the end.  As you cross the hall, you are in for a nasty 
    little jolt; Sledgehammer has found you once again.  Since he is right on you, and you 
    panic meter is high, hit him with a dash of Holy Water and run for the stairs on the far 
    end of the room (south) while he is stunned.   There isn't anything else of interest in this 
    room, so don't worry about it; there is a roped off door on the west wall of this room that 
    would lead back into the entry hall if it worked, and a glassed in payphone that Alyssa 
    can't use on the east wall.  If you want to check these out more thoroughly, you will get a 
    chance to do so later.  For now, run like hell until you reach the top of the stairs, and run 
    through the double doors at the top.
    Dash across this new room, past some chairs on your left and a door with a glowing sigil 
    on your right, and press the action button to open the locker and jump inside.  Now hold 
    real still until the bad man teleports away.  He may leave the room at least once, but until 
    you hear the teleportation noise and the music fades, he will probably be back.  If your 
    panic gets too high while you are in the locker and you think Alyssa might burst from 
    cover, or if she goes into full Panic Mode at any time, use a Lavender Water to calm her 
    ass down, or else you can't use the Hide Point.  Once Sledgehammer is gone, leave your 
    hiding space and hit the glowing sigil with a dash of Holy Water to unseal it.  By the 
    way, the other lockers in this area do open, but there is nothing inside of use.  Also, there 
    is a bottle that can be knocked over to reveal Alyssa's position against the wall to the 
    right of the sigil marked door, so avoid this.  Check this stuff out if you want, then go 
    through the unsealed door into the balcony area overlooking the stage. 
    There is a roped-off door to your right, against the south wall of this area, next to the 
    stairs leading up around the stairs.  There is a dead end up against the balcony railing to 
    your left.  The only way through is to move to your right, towards the south, climb the 
    stairs next to all the chairs all the way to the top, and move east until you find the stairs 
    going down the other side.  Descend these, then turn so you are facing the east wall.  If 
    you go left (north) there is a roped-off door and a dead end against the railing.  So that 
    means right it is, to a door on the south wall.  Go through this door.  
    You are now at the eastern end of a corridor running east and west.  The first door you 
    pass on the south wall is locked from the other side; no help there.  Continue down the 
    hallway and there is an open door on the south wall, and if you continue to the end of the 
    hall you find a roped-off door on the north wall that would have lead out back into the 
    balcony area through the roped-off door to the right of the balcony stairs that you saw 
    earlier,  and a dead end.  Go through the open door on the south wall to enter a costume 
    storage area.  Take in all of the neat stuff as you move east, past a bookcase and an open 
    wardrobe, with a violin case leaning against the wall between them, and you will reach a 
    dead-end made by a haphazard pile of junk.  Go to the open wardrobe and search the 
    tuxedo for a box of matches, then leave the room and head back the way you came.  As 
    you near the door leading back to the balcony, Sledgehammer makes another dramatic 
    entrance.  The wreckage the wall he busted through partially blocks the route back, so run 
    back into the storage room, even though you know it is a dead end.  What choice do you 
    have?  There is a glowing evade point right over the violin between the bookcase and the 
    wardrobe; use it quickly.  Alyssa takes another moment to fight back, and temporarily 
    incapacitates the killer under a shower of boxes.  Run back out the way you came 
    towards the exit to the balcony and the pile of rubble.  There is a small opening through 
    the rubble on the right side, so have Alyssa crawl through.  You can enter the room that 
    Sledgehammer busted out of now, through the hole he made in the south wall.  This is the 
    other end of the storage room, on the other side of the pile of junk you just buried 
    Sledgehammer under.  Don't worry about him just now, but search the glittering object 
    against the south wall for another Invisibility Band.  Once you have this, run back 
    through the hole in the wall, and back out through the door to the balcony which is 
    directly in front of you.  Run forward until you see the stairs on your left, then run up 
    them, back west behind the seating, and then down the staircase on the other side.  Exit 
    the area through the door you originally entered this area through, on the west wall.  
    Now you should be back out by the three lockers that act as a hiding spot.  Run back 
    through the door to the south and down the stairs until you reach the bottom.  Since you 
    didn't get to before, feel free to check this area out a little more thoroughly, until your 
    Panic Meter is totally clear.  Then exit through the double doors on the north wall.
    Head towards the door that you haven't checked out yet on the north end of this hallway, 
    for a nasty shock.  Doesn't this guy ever get discouraged?  He is being humiliated by an 
    almost fifteen year old girl!  Hit him with your last dose of Holy Water, then slip past 
    him through the door he just came through, back into the stage area.  Run to Alyssa's left, 
    onto the stage, and slip behind the curtain and stay there until the bastard teleports away.  
    When he is gone, run back across the performance hall, through the double doors on the 
    south end, and back out to the lobby.  Use the Master Key to unlock the front door (if you 
    haven't done so already), run across the courtyard, out through the archway, and turn 
    right (west) to refill at the Lion's Head Fountain.  Save if you want (you will be doing so 
    again as soon as your re-enter the Concert Hall), and then return to the Concert Hall.  By 
    this time Sledgehammer should be chasing you again.  He almost always shows up 
    behind you, so keep running towards the Concert Hall.  Run in through the front door, 
    past the front desk, into the performance hall, onto the stage, and slip behind the curtain 
    until he teleports away.  Then return to the front hall and save as quickly as you can.  
    Once this is accomplished, rush back into the performance hall and through the door on 
    the west wall.  Finally, turn right and go down the hallway until you reach the door at the 
    end, on the north wall.  Go on through. 
    Here there is a flight of stairs.  Climb it until you reach the first landing, then turn left.  
    This is a vaguely square room, with a couch and a desk along the west wall, and a vase in 
    the center.  The couch and the vase are nothing special, but search the glittering object on 
    the desk to reveal another Lavender Water.  Then follow the north wall to the right and 
    around a short corner to find a short hallway and the stairs that continue up.  Follow them 
    to the top and enter the door that you find here.  Sledgehammer may be chasing you at 
    this point, but do your best to ignore him.  Only once was he ever waiting for me at the 
    top of the stairs; if this happens do your best of get away from him, run downstairs and 
    hide behind the stage curtains until he goes away; hit him with Holy Water if you need 
    some breathing room.  Hopefully however, he will be behind you and not in your way.  
    Sledgehammer leaves you alone as you enter this area; that is never a good sign. As you 
    enter this area, you will notice that it is a V-shaped section of wire-mesh catwalk.  If you 
    run straight ahead, you will reach a dead end.  Instead, turn right as you come through the 
    door and run west.  If you did not flip the switch in the area behind the curtain a second 
    time, after getting the combination for the locker, there will be a section of catwalk 
    missing, and you will have to go back down stairs and flip the switch before you 
    continue.  Otherwise, the catwalk turns sharply south, until you reach an area with an 
    unlit lantern and a plank stretching out over the darkness.  Examine the lantern to use the 
    matches to light it, then turn back to the plank.  Yes, you are going to have to cross it.  
    Ease out onto the plank and begin edging your way across.  If Alyssa wobbles and waves 
    her arms, in means that you will have to wait until she regains her balance, then adjust 
    her trajectory.  If she falls, it is game over.  Make your way across, stopping to readjust 
    every time she wobbles.  Once you get to the other side, you will find a small area of 
    catwalk with a pair of pliers in the middle.  Grab these, and then edge back across the 
    board, using the same method as before.  Once you are on the other side, another 
    cutscene starts.  It might seem a little surreal, but the lunar moth is a clue; these little 
    bastards are the Entities' eyes and ears.  If they see you, so does their master.  You can't 
    do anything about this one right now, because you now have Sledgehammer between you 
    and the way out.  Hit him in the face with some Holy Water, and then run past him and 
    out the door you came in through, in the north-east corner of the room, on the north wall.  
    Sprint down the stairs, down the short hallway, and then make a sharp left when you 
    reach the landing.  Run down the remaining stairs, out through the door, then take the 
    first door on your left out into the stage area, and hide behind the curtain.  If you can help 
    it, try to make it all the way to behind the curtain without having to use your last two 
    doses of Holy Water, because there are some of those damned Lunar moths in this area 
    that need to be destroyed.   It is possible to get all the way down here alive without using 
    the Holy Water; trust me.  You might get hit once, but just keep going.  Once you are 
    behind the curtain, turn and douse the moths with holy water to destroy them.  The moths 
    not only call the Subordinate for the area, but if they touch Alyssa they can cause her 
    Panic Meter to rise as well, and we don't want that.  There are three of them, and they 
    usually come by twos or all together.  If they are all together, great; one dash of Holy 
    Water should get them all.  If not, try to hit two together, then nail the last one with your 
    last dash of Holy Water.  If you have to use a second dash of Holy Water before reaching 
    the stage area, don't go to the stage yet; run past the door to the stage, out through the 
    door at the far end of the hallway, up the stairs at the far end of the room, through the 
    door at the top, and hide in the closet until Sledgehammer goes away.  Then return 
    downstairs, go through the doors to the stage area, and either dash for the exit or use a 
    Band of Invisibility to slip past the moths guarding this area, and out into the hallway 
    leading to the front desk and the exit.  
    Whichever method you use to effect your narrow escape, it is time to leave the Concert 
    Hall.  Save your game at the front (trust me on this one), and leave the Concert Hall.  
    Now it is time for a mad dash.  Sledgehammer comes bursting through the doors behind 
    you, so keep running across the courtyard, around the fountain in the middle and slip 
    through the arch with the crazed fiend on your heels.  Turn right as you come out of 
    archway, and quickly refill at the Lion's Head Fountain.  Nail Sledgehammer with a 
    quick dash of Holy Water, quickly refill again, and then run like hell across the bridge 
    back towards Norton's Tailor.  Lunar moths will start converging on you from the sides, 
    but ignore them.  Alternately, you can stay near the Lion's Head Fountain and alternately 
    douse Sledgehammer with Holy Water and then refill, until his Minions come to you, 
    then destroy them with Holy Water, stun Sledgehammer one last time, and then run for 
    Norton's Tailor.  Regardless, he should come bursting into the room right behind you, so 
    hit him again with Holy Water and then run for the hiding spot in the north-west corner 
    of the room until he teleports away.  Once he is gone, leave your hiding space and follow 
    the wall on your right until you reach the door behind the desk.  Go through it, and take a 
    right, following the east wall of this room as it turns sharply west, then run west until you 
    reach the door covered in barbed wire.  Search it to use the Pliers and unseal the door.  
    Enter it to find William's room.  
    This is a cozy little room with fireplace, an empty bookshelf, a little table covered in 
    books (why weren't they in the bookshelf?), a little table with flowers on it, a couch with 
    a coffee table in front of it, a rocking chair, and, of course, a piano.  Where else would 
    little May practice her ivory tickling?  There are really only two things of importance in 
    this room; the rocking chair and a box on the mantelpiece above the fire.  The rocking 
    chair is in the north-east corner of the room, and it holds a Repellant Arrow.  This handy 
    little things are only used in boss battles, and should be saved for the end of the game.  
    Once you have this in hand, search the box on the mantelpiece to start a fairly long but 
    important cutscene.  Aww.  I guess that pocket watch must be very important to poor 
    May.  There are some other important bits of information in the box as well, including the 
    real identity to the one we call Sledgehammer.  His name was Robert Morris, aged 32, 
    who killed twelve people with a hammer before being captured and hanged on the 10th of 
    September, 1941.  But wait a second, wasn't May Norton murdered on December 25th, 
    1942?  I guess you just can't keep a good serial killer down.  It is time to bring Alyssa her 
    father's watch, and put a stop to this madness.  Leave William's room through the only 
    door, and retrace your route back out of Norton's Tailor for the last time.  
    Whether you killed them or not, the Minions are now gone from this area.  Cross the 
    bridge without fear of attack, refill your Holy Water (just for the hell of it), and save your 
    game at the Lion's Head Statue.  Go through the archway and start to cross the courtyard 
    to begin the final battle with Sledgehammer.
    -3. Boss Battle: Sledgehammer
    It's time to teach the Hammer that "You can't touch this"!  Yeah, I know, that 
    was bad.  Regardless, once you get most of the way across the courtyard, Sledgehammer 
    shows up for a little fisticuffs, mano-a-little girl-o.   Once the cutscene is over, you get a 
    short tutorial on how to fight boss battles.  For more general information on Boss Battles, 
    check out section I. h. The Smackdown. 
    After the tutorial, you get to see exactly what Alyssa is supposed to use to fight the 
    Entities; her Sacred Bottle turns into a Devine Bow that can shoot energy arrows.  
    Groovy.  Just like the Ranger on the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.  Now it is time 
    to brawl.  According to the stats at the beginning of the fight, Sledgehammer has killed 
    26 people.  The newspaper article says Robert Morris killed 12 before he died, and he 
    said that May was only the beginning, so somewhere he killed another 13 people in 
    between.  There was one Spirit on High Street, and one on the Promenade, and if he 
    killed the manager of the Concert Hall (the guy who had the combination for the locker), 
    that still leaves ten.  Oh well.  I guess I don't need to see every body. 
    Bobby has on a couple of attacks.  The first is a slow overhead strike when he gets too 
    close to you, which is easy to avoid if you keep moving.  He occasionally pauses to do a 
    happy little dance, but don't be fooled; it doesn't give you enough time (usually) to hit 
    him with a super-charged binding arrow.  What you have to wait for is for him to say 
    "Die!"  After he says this he strikes the ground with his hammer, which sends a 
    shockwave towards you that can do damage and knock you on your ass if you are close 
    enough.  If you are somewhat near him when you hear him start this attack, hit the crouch 
    button and hold it until the shockwave goes by.  As soon as it has, quickly stand.  Put at 
    least a few strides between the two of you, and then begin charging an arrow.  The 
    camera switches to the first person view, and the arrow begins glowing ever brighter.  
    Hold it until wavy beams of light stream off of it, and then release.  If you think it is 
    almost ready, and Sledgehammer charges you, keep holding it as long as you possibly 
    can.  Even if he hits you, the released arrow should pin him to the spot if you held the 
    attack long enough.  Unfortunately, you can't just stand in the same spot and pummel 
    him if you really hope to bind him.  You need to capture him in a criss-crossing spider's 
    web of energy bands, and have points of origin at least 45 degrees apart, so move left or 
    right significantly before attempting another pinning attack.  Do this three times, from 
    three different spots, and you have him pinned.  It gets a lot easier after the first shot pins 
    him, because so long as you are out of his range, the first pinning shot holds him in place 
    to set him up for the next.  Don't get discouraged if you take too long and he breaks free; 
    just calmly start the process over again.  If you are feeling ballsy, you can pin him 
    without waiting for him to release the energy wave.  Simply wait until he unleashes a 
    regular attack, turn, and begin to charge an attack.  Hold it until the last possible moment, 
    and then release it into him point blank right before he is about to strike you.  If your 
    timing was right, your attack will stop his attack and pin him to the spot.  Even if it 
    wasn't strong enough to pin him, it should have been enough to stop his attack and stun 
    him for a second, so you can try again.   This method is faster, but it takes nerves of steel, 
    since you really have to wait until the last possible moment to make it effective.  
    Once you have him pinned with three energy chains, start another attack from anywhere 
    on the screen.  Instead of pointing at the Subordinate, Alyssa aims at the sky, and looses 
    an arrow into the gathering clouds, unleashing a devastating holy attack from above.  
    This should be more than enough to cook Sledgehammer's toast.  He will be destroyed in 
    the rush of energy, and release the Clover of Love, which Alyssa will automatically pick 
    up.  This sounds vaguely dirty, but the object is in fact a piece of the clover necklace that 
    Alyssa has been carrying.  Now that she has it in her possession, Alyssa's Sacred Bottle 
    becomes more powerful; you now can carry four doses of Holy Water instead of three.  
    Not bad.  
    Don't worry about going back and saving, as you are more or less done here, and the 
    Entity who has been torturing you is no more.  Take a few moments to appreciate the nice 
    environment of the courtyard which the programmers did such a nice job on, but that you 
    have been too busy running in fear to enjoy.  Unfortunately, the way back towards the 
    Promenade is permanently closed, so if you missed something, it is gone.  Once you have 
    looked around to your heart's content, continue up the steps and enter the Concert Hall.  
    Again, don't worry about saving your game at the front desk.  You are almost done here, 
    so continue on your way until you reach the performance hall.  Run up to the stage to 
    begin a long, touching, and informative cutscene.  Alyssa tells May that her father is 
    dead, and then tries to comfort her by telling her that she never knew her father because 
    he died when she was very young, but that she loves her grandfather the same way May 
    loves her father.  She then encourages May to play the piano along with the pocket 
    watch's tune for practice…and she finally gets the damn song right!  Her father comes 
    back from beyond to gather her up and thank Alyssa, and then May and William return to 
    the afterlife together, finally at peace.  Alyssa, for her part, sees them off, and then 
    collapses in a heap on the stage.  It must have been all that stress.  
    She wakes up in her bed, wondering if the whole thing has just been a dream…
    -b.  Chapter Two: "It must have been some bad Acid…"
    -1. Intermission
     There is a pounding at Alyssa's curtained window, but she can't see what is outside.  
    Fearfully, she edges towards it to see what she can see…is it a demon, an Entity, or some 
    horrible beast?  Well, yes, kind of.  It is Alyssa's grade school friend Dennis, and by this 
    cutscene it appears that he has some form of wanker  epilepsy.  This red-headed scamp 
    not only grates on my every nerve, but he also has a key to Alyssa's grandfather's room 
    that Alyssa's mother gave him to give to Alyssa if he were to see her.  So since Dennis 
    obviously has a huge crush on Alyssa (and also seems to know where Alyssa's bedroom 
    window is…hmmm), he brought the key over for her, climbed the trellis, and pounded on 
    her window.  How…kind of him.  
    Now that you have a key for Grandpa Dick's room, it is time to head downstairs again.  
    Alyssa automatically leaves the room through the lower door, leaving Dennis behind 
    temporarily.  Go down the staircase, hang a hard right, and double back to the doors 
    almost under the stairs (but if you want to, check the doors to the Dining Room first; who 
    the hell locked them, if you are here alone… probably the creepy old guy who told you 
    your mommy was never coming home…).  When you go through these doors, you enter a 
    corridor with a door at either end.  The one to your left goes into the guest's rooms, and is 
    permanently locked; you'll never get in there.  The door to your right is Dick's room.  
    Which brings up another interesting question; the map clearly states that this is the Guest 
    Wing.  So why are Alyssa, Nancy, Philip and Dick's rooms all located in this wing?  Are 
    they guests in their own house?  Are they slumming it?  The world may never know.  
    These questions aside, use the key that Dennis gave you to open Dick's room.  You 
    know, if I had that name I think I would definitely go with Richard.  Anyway, the room 
    you are now in is Alyssa's Grandfather's office, and is full of strange and esoteric objects 
    and books.  Before looking at the obvious objects on the desktop, take a few moments to 
    take in some of the room.  Notice the painting of your Grandfather on the wall to your 
    right as you enter the room.  On the left is a wall of masks (eerily, I have a very similar 
    wall in my own house).  Search the bookcase and the desk drawers for interesting bits of 
    information. Remember the locked drawer that is on the right as you are facing the desk.  
    Notice also that there is a mask missing from the wall.   Once you have taken all this in, 
    check out the object on the top of the desk.
    The Book of Entities Vol. 1 explains some of the horrible things that Alyssa has seen; 
    evil spirits called Entities possess innocent humans and drive them to acts of ruthless 
    cruelty and murder.  Those humans who are thus possessed are called Subordinates.  
    Even killing the Subordinates does not stop the evil, as the Entity will simply resurrect its 
    Subordinates to continue the killing spree. Subordinates gain power from each human 
    they kill, taking sustenance from the misery and suffering of the victim's soul.  
    Subordinates can acquire an infinite amount of power in this way.  Only certain humans 
    can fight the Subordinates and the Entities who control them; the Rooders; metaphysical 
    warriors who's job it is to redeem the souls of the restless dead, and send them on their 
    way.  They are the ones chosen to fight the evil creatures called the Entities, and most of 
    them are girls in their early teens.  Only one girl, in all the world…never mind, that last 
    bit is from Buffy.  Alyssa realizes that what she experienced earlier was no "dream"; she 
    is a Rooder, and she actually redeemed the dead and defeated an Entity and its 
    As she is trying to cope with the connotations of this, Dennis burst in, in his trademark 
    irritating manner.  Alyssa shows him the book of Entities, most likely confusing the poor 
    bastard even further.  Alyssa decides that she needs to find her mother to get the answers 
    that she needs, and can sense that she is close.  Dennis begs to be allowed to help, as his 
    sister Linda, who raised him, is away working as a relief worker in Africa, so he is all 
    alone, and, from the sounds of it, bored out of his skull.  Alyssa agrees to let him help her 
    find her mother, and tells him to search upstairs while she searches down.  Now that the 
    cutscene is over, it is time to search for clues.  There is a note on Dick's desk that says 
    "The Keys to the mystery of time lie behind you".  Mystery of time, huh?  How about the 
    clock in Nancy's room, that said you needed Winding Keys to get it going?  The 
    keys…lie behind you is misleading; I kept turning around and searching the chair and the 
    bookcase behind Alyssa, and there is nothing there.  The clue should read that "The Keys 
    to the mysteries of time lie behind ME", if it was Dick who wrote the note.  Search the 
    picture of Dick hanging on the wall to discover the Winding Keys to the clock in Nancy's 
    room.  It is pretty irritating that you searched here earlier, and found nothing, simply 
    because you hadn't found the book or talked to Dennis about the Rooders yet.  But you 
    have the keys now, so what say we go upstairs.  
    Exit Dick's room, leave the corridor by taking the door on the left wall, climb the 
    stairway in the next room, go through the door at the top of the stairs, hang a left, and go 
    through the door at the end of the hall.  In this area, notice something has changed; the 
    sigil on the door is now glowing blue.  So what are you waiting for?  Douse the door with 
    Holy Water.  Unfortunately, the sigil that was hold you out was also holding something 
    in, so a cranky ghost comes out to play.  Ignore it to the best of your abilities, and enter 
    the now unsealed bathroom.  Inside, you will find nothing…other than a bathtub 
    containing the decayed corpse of one of your mother's boarders!  The key to freeing this 
    restless spirit is rather esoteric, and concerns the horrible stench that Alyssa comments on 
    when searching the rotting soup that is the corpse in the bathtub.  You need to use 
    something to make the room smell less terrible, and the only thing Alyssa is carrying that 
    fits the bill is the Lavender Water.  So use it already!  This seems to work just fine, and 
    the spirit is freed, leaving behind a Sigil Stone.  
    This little side-quest fulfilled, continue on your way.  Leave the bathroom, turn right, and 
    go a short distance around a corner into Nancy's room.  As you walk in front of the 
    painting over the fireplace it falls, revealing another picture, this one with a clock 
    depicted in it.  The time on the clock in the painting reads 3:00, so go over to the clock to 
    the right of the painting and use the winding keys when prompted. The time on the real 
    clock says 3:05.   How do you make the time read 3:00?  The left key moves time 
    backwards by 40 minutes, while the right one moves it forward by 25 minutes.  If you are 
    having trouble, the solution is; left, right, left, right, right.  Once you do this, the wall to 
    the left of the clock slides aside to reveal a secret door, so enter it.  In  this snazzy red 
    room is a desk, some weird occult mumbo jumbo, and a mystical circle on the ground.  
    Check the book on the desk for a hint on how to activate the "Portal Square" (the symbol-
    thing on the ground near the desk), then stand in the middle of the Portal Square and 
    douse it twice with Holy Water.  Step into the middle of the now glowing symbol, and we 
    are on our way.  
    -2. I Hear the Acid's Lovely…
    I have a feeling that we aren't in Kansas any more, Toto.  As Alyssa steps out of the light 
    in the center of the Portal Square, she finds herself in an area that is most certainly not 
    Nancy's hidden office.  The Portal Square stops glowing, but you can still see it drawn on 
    the ground.  In fact, if you douse it twice with Holy Water again, you can re-activate it 
    and return to your own time and place.  Leave it alone for now, however, and investigate 
    this new area. There is only one way to go, so head south.   It appears to be some sort of 
    out of the way park in the middle of a suburb.  On the ground in the top right corner of 
    the park is a Lavender Water.  Fill up your Holy Water at the Lion's Head Fountain 
    dominating the center of the park,  and save.  If you search the trashcan at the bottom of 
    this area, you will find an newspaper article.  It is dated November 23, 1963, and tells of 
    Dorothy Rand and her toy-maker son Albert Rand, whose bodies were found in a drum 
    filled with acid in the garage adjoining their house on Russell Street, in West Sussex. 
    Albert lived with his mother, a blind widow, and he himself had his eyes gouged out prior 
    to the murder. It also says the police were looking for a man who had been staying with 
    the Rands a few days before the murder, having claimed to be a distant relative.   
    Something tells me that these murders might be why you are there.  Leaving the area by 
    the only path, you will find that you can't go left, as the way is blocked by a fence. So 
    turn right, and walk up the path parallel to the park, until you find two trashcans, with a 
    nearby red hued Spirit.  Here the path turns to the left.  Notice the teddy bear at the foot 
    of the left-most trashcan?  Pick it up, then continue cautiously past the Spirit to the left.  
    On the left side of the path you will notice a dumpster with an arm sticking out of it; this 
    is the Spirit's corpse.  There is a half-heart pendant dangling from the limp hand; you are 
    going to need the other half to put the Spirit to rest and collect your reward.  Also on the 
    left, on the same screen, just past the dumpster, notice a door.  It is locked from the other 
    side.  Continue to avoid the Spirit and continue on your way.  You will pass a wall with 
    some bright red graphiti that reads "Get Ready To Go To Hell". Lovely, run past this and  
    past a little alcove with toppled barrels near it.  Soon you will find another Spirit, another 
    door on your left, and just beyond it, the Spirit's crashed car, with the trunk sprung and 
    an empty gift box just below it.  The teddy bear that you found earlier was once in the 
    box, a gift that some little girl would never get.  Well, do your best anyway, and use the 
    teddy bear near the car.  This appeases the hippy Spirit, and she departs, leaving you a 
    Sigil Stone. Leave it to a hippy to give you a crystal.   Now head through the purple-hued 
    door to your left.  
    Great; a derelict looking house with a wide trail of blood running down the center of the 
    hallway.  This should end well.  Note the cans on the floor to your left, as these will be a 
    noise hazard once you meet the Subordinate for this level.  Also on the left is a set of 
    locked double doors.  There is only one way to go, so continue through the house until 
    you trigger a creepy cutscene.  Count Crapula!  That charming fellow must have been 
    Albert, and he isn't the happiest clown at the circus.  But since he is gone, try once more 
    to go down the hallway.  Another cutscene follows, in which Alyssa decides to do some 
    exploring without your help, and meets Dorothy, albeit briefly.  When this scene is done, 
    check the door to find it is being held shut from the other side, then go to the right some 
    more; at the end of the hall there is a locked door with a crooked picture next to it.  As 
    you look at the picture, Alyssa thinks that she should straighten the picture, but then 
    doesn't do so.  Now go back to the main hall, and a Spirit will begin to pursue Alyssa.  
    You will run past a door on your right, but don't bother to stop, because it is locked.  Run 
    up some stairs and don't stop until you run out of hallway.  Here you will find another 
    door, this time on your left.  This little room has a few objects of interest; a desk with a 
    journal on it, bookshelf with a toolbox, a bed, and a table with a Moonflower on it and a 
    picture of the moon behind it.  First things first, and knowledge should always come first.  
    Read Albert's journal, on the desk.  It seems that the Rand's "relative" who came to stay 
    was named John Haigh, and that Albert was wary of him from the beginning, but that 
    dear old mum told him not to judge a book by its cover.  I guess Dorothy should have 
    listened to Albert.  Now check the toolbox, to find it locked.  Finally, examine the 
    Moonflower on the table next to the bed.  It asks if you want to turn the flower, so turn it 
    North, towards the moon on the picture behind it.  The bed slides aside to reveal a ladder 
    that leads through a hatch on the floor.  Go down the ladder and you will come out of a 
    chimney in the dining room downstairs.  Don't stand around too long, or you will get 
    blindsided by the same Spirit who cased you up the stairs earlier.  Run around the table 
    and pick up the glittering object from the other end; the kitchen key.  On the other end of 
    the table is the Half Heart pendant, so avoid the Spirit as you run around to the other side 
    and grab it.  Notice the fire extinguisher leaning against the wall opposite the room's only 
    door, then leave the room through the door.  You are back in the main hallway of the 
    house, and just exited through the doors that had been locked from the other side.  You 
    are near the doors where you first came into the house, but as the ghost comes sliding 
    through the wall behind you, don't bother running for the front door, as something has 
    locked it behind you!  So run back up the hallway, around the corner, past the hallway to 
    your right, around another corner, and use the Kitchen key on the door to the right that 
    you ran by earlier while the ghost was pursuing you the first time. 
     Run through the door and into the kitchen to trigger a short cutscene, then read the 
    reporter's memo.  It tells us quite a bit about John Haigh's murder of the Rands, if you 
    pay close attention to the dates on the documents.  The reporters Memo says that he had 
    found a very important clue in the Rand's murder case, and was going back to the house 
    to investigate.  Which is how he ended up here, dead.  Along with the Memo is an old 
    news article dated May 11, 1962, that tells how John Haigh, a serial killer on the run 
    since "early last year" (which would be 1961), was finally captured.  Haigh had killed 
    several pensioners, whose bodies he then disposed of by stuffing them into vats of stolen 
    sulfuric acid.  Knowing that he needed more sulfuric acid to continue in this manner, 
    police staked out factories that used sulfuric acid in their processes, in hopes that he 
    would come for more, which he did, at a plating factory in Horsham.   In his attempts to 
    escape the cops Haigh lost his balance and fell from a platform into a vat of acid, 
    ironically meeting the same end as those he had killed.  The Rand's murders could have 
    been some of the "several pensioners" mentioned in the articles, except for the dates; the 
    first article found in the trashcan in the park was dated November 23, 1963.  This is a 
    year and six months after the article was written.  So John Haigh was possessed by an 
    Entity, killed a bunch of people, fell into a vat of acid, got resurrected, then came back, 
    posed as the Rand's relative, and killed them too.  He didn't even bother to change his 
    name in between, as Albert's diary refers to John Haigh by name. Ballsy. 
    Check out the corpse on the floor (burned by something…hmmm), and his camera, then 
    dash out through the door on the far wall before the ghost (who is still chasing you) gets 
    hold of you.  You can check this place out a little better after you get rid of that damned 
    Spirit.  You end up back in the alleyway outside of the building, next to the dumpster 
    with the body in it.  Run over to the body and use the Half Heart pendant to set the red 
    Spirit free, and receive an Invisibility Band in exchange.  Then return to the nearby park 
    for a refill and save.  But what is this…!  Alyssa's mum makes a cameo, before 
    disappearing into thin air.  She left something behind, on the ground on the left hand side 
    of the screen; Dick's Desk Key.  Time to head back to the future.  Or present, rather.  
    Whatever.  Run back to the Portal Square to the north, douse the circle twice with Holy 
    Water, then step into the light. 
     Once back in the red room, head back downstairs to Dick's office and use the key on the 
    drawer on the right-hand side.  Inside is the book of Entities II, which tells you how to 
    vanquish a Subordinate.  You must find a sentimental item belonging to the murdered 
    soul who is powering the Subordinate, in order to heal the victim and send them on their 
    way.  Once the object is found, the Rooder's power is boosted and a "Rooder Portal 
    Square"  appears, with the sacred weapon needed to destroy the Subordinate within.  Oh, 
    so that is what happened earlier with Sledgehammer.  Anyway, also in the drawer is the 
    missing mask, so use it on the wall to your right, and the wall slides aside to reveal a 
    hidden portion of Dick's office.  There are a lot of books here, and a few desks.  One wall 
    is taken up entirely by old family photos.  On the small, book covered desk to the side of 
    the central desk, search to find another Repellant Arrow. Search the box on the central 
    desk for a roll of film and a document written in your grandfather's hand.  The document 
    says that the Rooder bloodline is passed from mother to daughter, down through the ages, 
    and the Hamilton bloodline is particularly strong with it.  The Rooder powers manifest in 
    the early teens, and dwindle quickly as the Rooder ages, so that the powers are gone 
    entirely at the age of twenty.  The ex-Rooders then marry in their early twenties, in hopes 
    that they will have a girl child to pass on the Rooder bloodline to.  Dick didn't believe in 
    any of this until he found the Book of Entities, and now he is particularly proud of it.  
    Before we go any farther, we should get this out of the way, to avoid any confusion; in 
    Clock Tower the family name is the name of the female's family.  Dick's last name was 
    Brown, until he married Francesca Hamilton, and his name became Dick Hamilton.  Dick 
    and Francesca had a daughter named Nancy, and she married Philip (whose original last 
    name was never revealed) and he became Philip Hamilton.  So for some reason they are 
    following a matriarchal bloodline; the men lose their "maiden" names when they get 
    married, and take the last name of their wives.  You go, sisters.  Fight the power!  
    Actually, I noticed the same thing in the Japanese animation Neon Genesis Evangelion; 
    the father of the main character, Shinji, whose name was Gendo Rokobundi , married Yui 
    Ikari, and became Gendo Ikari. It must be some wacky Japanese thing.  But I digress 
    once again.  Once Alyssa finishes reading her Grandfather's notes, she realizes that she 
    really is a Rooder, and hopes that by doing her Rooder thing and saving Dorothy and 
    Albert Rand's souls, she will be free, and able to find her mother.  So return upstairs to 
    the red room with the Portal Square; notice that it is still glowing.  Once you have 
    activated it once from each side, it stays open until you are done with that level; i.e. you 
    have defeated the Subordinate and freed the trapped spirits that power them.  So step into 
    the glowing circle and return to the 1960s.  
    Refill your Holy Water and save at the Lion's Head Fountain, then return to the kitchen 
    of the Rand's house through the door next to the dumpster with the now-at-rest corpse 
    inside.  Run over to the camera and use the film that you got from Dick's hidden office to 
    finally set the pesky spirit to rest.  In exchange, you receive some pictures that (amongst 
    other things) show you how the body ended up in the dumpster outside.  The second 
    picture shows you that had you moved the crooked picture in the hallway where you first 
    saw Dorothy (like you wanted to), you would have found a hidden switch.  Dammit!  
    Check out the rest of the kitchen if you want, taking notice of the pots on the left side of 
    the sink, which can be knocked to the floor with quite a racket.  Right, stay away from 
    those.  Now exit the room through the door leading back into the house, go around the 
    corner to your left, then go down the branching hallway you had explored briefly before.  
    As you go down this hallway, ignore the door on your left, which some force is still 
    holding shut.  Examine the crooked painting at the end of the hallway, flip the hidden 
    switch, and go through the now unlocked door next to it.  
    To your left is a small bathroom, which you can use to hide in later, and to your right is a 
    Lion's Head Fountain and a path that leads west, up a flight of metal stairs.  Refill your 
    Holy Water (if necessary) and save, then climb the stairs.  The path turns north at the top 
    of the stairs, and right ahead there is a door that is locked from the other side on your 
    right, a stairway going down on your left, and a door a short way up the path to the north.  
    Go north through the unlocked door.  
    Walk straight forward through this small, ransacked room.  In the north-west corner there 
    is some wood that can be knocked over, which makes a racket.  Next to this is a large 
    container marked Sodium Chlorate (to which Alyssa remarks "sounds flammable"; smart 
    14 year old).  Continue to search to trigger a nasty, brutal cutscene showing you both the 
    Rand's grisly end, a glimpse of the fate of the sentimental object you will be looking for, 
    and your first view of the most disturbing looking Subordinate in the game; John Haigh, 
    "The Corroder".  After the cutscene, dash north, away from your assailant, and towards 
    the Sodium Chlorate, your evade point, which should have a green glow around it.  The 
    villain is doused with burning chemicals, and Alyssa effects her escape through the front 
    door.  However, during the cutscene with the burning Corroder, a glittering object can be 
    seen in the background.  Alyssa will have to go back for it.  Turn right around and run 
    back into the room Alyssa just escaped from.  Run to the south-east corner of the room 
    and pick up the glittering object next to the double doors; another Invisibility Band.  Now 
    enter the double doors, into the room in which you saw Dorothy and Albert receive their 
    acid baths.  
    On the east wall of this room is shelf with a glittering object on it.  This is the key to the 
    toolbox back in the main house.  There is nothing more of interest here, so exit through 
    the door in the south-west corner of the room, back onto the metal catwalk near the stairs.  
    Turn left and run down the stairs leading back to the Lion's Head Fountain, refill your 
    Holy Water, and save.  Then head back through the door leading into the main house.  Go 
    down the hallway and turn right at the end, or try to.  The Corroder jumps out of nowhere 
    and blasts you in the face with acid, raising your Panic Meter almost as far as it can go.  
    Don't let the bastard push you over the edge; instead hit HIM in the face with Holy 
    Water, dodge around him as he is screaming, and run past the room on the right, down 
    the hallway and up the stairs, until you reach the door at the end of the hallway.  
    Alternately, you could turn left at the end of the first hallway to avoid getting a face full 
    of acid, enter the double doors in the main hall (near the blood smears), and go up the 
    chimney into the same room above.  Corroder will still burst into the kitchen behind you, 
    but you won't have to use a Holy Water and your Panic Meter won't be topped out.  
    Either way, you are now in the upstairs room, with a maniac right behind you.  But 
    Corroder can't up through the narrow chimney passage with him bulky chemical tanks, 
    so he will have to come around and come in through the door.  Either way you choose, 
    you are in the same boat. 
    Run over to the toolbox on the bookshelf, and use the Toolbox Key when prompted.  
    Inside is a hexagonal wrench, so take it and get a move on.  Run back over to the ladder 
    leading into the dining room below, and wait; after a few seconds, Corroder comes 
    bursting into the upstairs room.  Quickly descend the ladder to avoid him.  Now you have 
    to act quickly; there is a glowing Evade point over the fire extinguisher, on the same side 
    of the room as the chimney.  If you try to leave the room without using the Evade point, 
    the door will burst open as you attempt to leave, and Alyssa will be knocked on her ass 
    and damned near Panicked.  You will probably need to use a dose of Holy Water on your 
    enemy to escape.  But seeing as you won't have to come back here again, instead of 
    trying to leave through the doors, just use the Evade point, if you can.  As you use the 
    Evade point, Corroder will come bursting into the room, and Alyssa will throw the 
    extinguisher, which will break open, filling the room with obscuring mist.  The good 
    news is that he can't see you.  The bad news is, you can't see him too well either.  But 
    since you know where what you are looking for is (the door) you have the advantage.  
    Sneak past him into the hallway, then turn left, run up the hallway until you see the 
    branching hallway going right, run down it to the end, and back out the door at the end.
    You are now back in the area with the metal stairs and the Lion's Head Fountain.  Run 
    over to the fountain, refill if necessary, and save.  Then try to climb the stairs.  You will 
    hear Johnny come out of a door above you, so turn around and make a mad dash for the 
    bathroom.  If you need to buy some time, hit him with a dash of Holy Water, but 
    whatever you do, make it to the bathroom.  I've run for a bathroom with almost as much 
    urgency before, but never because a man dressed in leather and a World War II gas mask 
    was trying to immerse me in acid.  Well, there was that one time when it FELT like that, 
    after Mexican night, but that is a whole different story.  Anyway, run past the door 
    leading back into the main house on your left, and through the door at the end.  Then 
    immediately turn around and use the Evade point located directly against the door to 
    temporarily dispatch your assailant.  Enjoy the cutscene.  Okay, that was a little too Wile 
    E. Coyote for a horror game, but what the hell.  Refill and save again at the Lion's Head 
    Fountain if you want (I did) and climb the stairs.   At the top, bear left and go down the 
    stairs on the other side, towards the river, then go left through the gate at the bottom.  
    Alyssa will notice Dorothy's shawl caught in a grate in the river, but you can't get there 
    from here.  Run south, past the giant fans, until you reach the dead end.  You will notice a 
    red knob sticking out of a pipe; examine it and use the hexagonal wrench when prompted 
    to stop the fan next to you.  Go through the fan like you would go through a door, by 
    hitting the action button, and Alyssa will crawl past the fans, down a short tunnel, and 
    past the stopped fan on the other side, without you having to do anything.
    Unfortunately, the Corroder gets here at the same time you do, leaving you with few 
    options in an unfamiliar room.   So run straight ahead from your entry point, until you see 
    the Corroder or the camera shifts, showing you the only door to this room, which is on 
    the north wall and has a red light over it.  Nail your enemy with a shot of Holy Water to 
    slow him down, then run through the door.
    He will still be chasing you, so run down the stairs, and through the metal doors to the 
    left of the stairs, without stopping.  Run through this next room, past a Save Journal to 
    your left and a table to your right, then bear right, all the way to the Evade point in the 
    farthest corner of the room.  Use the Evade point immediately, and the Corroder will 
    meet another ignoble end.  Which brings up an interesting point; despite being very 
    creepy looking and killing people with frickin' ACID for Christ's sake, the Corroder is 
    very goofy.  You kill him goofy when you use evade points.  He giggles and capers in the 
    cutscenes when you see him killing people.  If you ever let him close enough to really 
    attack you, he knocks you to the ground, then jumps up in the air and tries to kill you 
    with his ass, just like Mario.  If he ever succeeds in hitting you, he dances and claps, 
    while giggling.  Oh yeah.  This annoying bitch is going DOWN for the count.  After he is 
    gone search the table for a Lavender Water and the Daughter's letter, then save in the 
    journal across from the table.  This accomplished, leave the room the way you came in.  
    Hopefully, you were moving too fast on the way in for the Spirit who hangs around this 
    area to even make an appearance, let alone cause trouble for you.  Dodge past it now as 
    you move north, away from the stairs.  Do NOT go back up the stairs to the room with 
    the fans to explore it further; The Corroder has left his Minions there, and will find you if 
    you return to this room; furthermore, there is nothing to find.  Turn to follow the path 
    when it turns, and run east until you run out of sidewalk.  There is a short flight of stairs 
    leading down to a small empty platform, and a very narrow ledge that continues east.  
    Press the directional diagonally towards the wall and the ledge to get Alyssa to put her 
    back to the wall, then edge east until you reach a small stone island, with a narrow plank 
    leading to another island.  This island has two boards leading off of it; a short one in the 
    foreground of the screen, and a longer one towards the back.  The easier-looking of the 
    two (the shorter, closer one) is, or course, dangerous, but use it anyway, as falling into the 
    water once is necessary if you want to free that last Spirit you encountered.  As you cross 
    the board it breaks, dumping you into the water.  Don't bother trying to struggle, as you 
    are simply carried downstream until fetching up against some metal bars that keep you 
    from going further downstream.  This also just happens to be right next to the small 
    platform by the water, right next to where you started edging along the ledge.  As Alyssa 
    is catching her breath, something is stirred up from the depths, something…dead.  Alyssa 
    leaps out of the water and up the short set of stairs, but once you regain control, turn 
    around and go back.  Examine the corpse for information about how he make have died, 
    then use the Daughter's Letter from your inventory to set his Spirit Free.  As a reward 
    you are given the very valuable Binding Arrow, which you should save until the end of 
    the game.  Now climb the stairs, edge back along the ledge to the first island, then cross 
    the plank back to the second island.  Notice that the short board, which broke, and should 
    be gone, is back.  Ignore it and cross the longer one towards the back of the screen to the 
    next landing.  There are two more boards, one to the front, and one to the back, but only 
    the one towards the front is safe, so cross the one closest to the screen to reach another 
    island.  This one has only one board leaving it, but beware; she who hesitates is lost.  If 
    you don't cross as quickly as possible, ignoring the board's grumbling and quaking, the 
    board will slip, dumping you back into the river.  You will end up back at the platform 
    with the now dormant corpse, and have to do the whole board-crossing section over 
    again.  Luckily, this board will also have returned, or else there would be no way to beat 
    the level.  So cross quickly and surely, as the board falls into the water behind you, with 
    you safely on the other side.  For here, caught in the grating, is Dorothy's shawl.  And 
    you know what that means; it is almost time to end the level.  Turn left and walk a short 
    distance until you pass a fence and back onto solid ground.  Then turn left again, and 
    begin to walk.  This will activate a cutscene, and suddenly, you are stuck in a narrow 
    alley with the maniac!  Hit him immediately with Holy Water, than turn and run the 
    opposite direction until you see a door on the fence to your left.  Turn and open it, then 
    run forward.  You will realize that you are back in the section where the ghost once 
    roamed, and as you keep running forward you the door on your left leading back into the 
    room where you electrocuted the Corroder.  Ignore it and run back up the stairs, stopping 
    only to hit Corroder with more Holy Water if he gets too close.  Go through the door at 
    the top of the stairs.  Another cutscene follows as you enter the room, and it is time to 
    destroy your tormentor.  
    -3. Boss Battle: Corroder
    As the battle starts, the first thing you need to do is get a feel for your enemy's rhythms; 
    just like all boss battles, this one has a pattern.  He has a handful of pre-scripted 
    comments, with a certain attack or behavior attached to each one.  First of all, just like 
    Sledgehammer before him, he will take a swipe at you if he gets too close.  Luckily, this 
    attack is slow and easy to avoid if you keep moving.  He makes two quick swipes with 
    his spray nozzle, and the clouds of acid that come out of them are small and slow-
    moving, so keep on the move.  Every once in a while, when he has a straight line of sight, 
    he will say "There she is".  When you hear this, move quickly to one side or the other, 
    because he is about to shoot a long, accurate stream of acid in straight line.  This attack 
    moves much more quickly than the clouds, so as soon as you hear him start this attack, 
    get out of the way and keep moving, abandoning any attacks you may have started.  His 
    third action is to say "Time to die" or simply grunts a laugh; when he does either of these 
    things, he pauses for a short time and waves his arms around.  After a couple of seconds, 
    he then charges straight towards wherever you are on the screen.  This is not a dash 
    attack, or anything like that, he just runs a little faster to catch up with you.  If you have a 
    straight line of sight (i.e. he won't have to dodge around anything to get to you), he will 
    run straight at you, without dodging from side to side.  This is a good time to line up a 
    shot and hold it for as long as you can; you may even be able to get a binding shot, if you 
    have enough space between you.  Just hold it for as long as you can, than release it point 
    blank when he stops to attack you.  The best time for a binding attack, however, is when 
    his acid spraying nozzle jams.  He will try to make a regular swipe at you as he comes in 
    close, but nothing comes out of the nozzle.  He will then yell "Damn it!" and shake the 
    nozzle a number of times to clear it, two groups of three quick shakes.  After that, he will 
    begin one of his main attacks anew; either the quick swipes (if you are close), the "There 
    she is" long range attack, or one of his charging attacks.  Regardless, your job, once you 
    hear the "Damn it!" is to stop wherever you are, turn, and try and get a pinning shot on 
    him.  These moments when him nozzle jams are the best opportunities to do so.
    However, he has more hit points than Sledgehammer, and even if you pin him down and 
    nail him with the super-charged heavenly attack, he won't die unless you have whittled 
    his life down somewhat before hand.  So here is the best plan of attack; run until you see 
    him pause for any reason, then turn and fire a semi-charged arrow (one that glowing 
    somewhat, but is less than a binding attack) at him.  One important point to keep in mind 
    is that even though there is a big metal machine in the middle of the room, you can shoot 
    through it, even if you can't see through it.  Alyssa automatically locks onto the enemy's 
    position, so try to trust that your attack will work.  Of course, he might move out of the 
    way, but you will find he does that a lot even when you can see him.  Anyway, just hit 
    him with lesser attacks as often as possible, and wait for a chance to pin him, either when 
    he charges you from across the room, or when his nozzle jams.  Once you have one 
    glowing chain attached to him, it makes things a little easier.  Just like with 
    Sledgehammer, move forty-five degrees at least, then hit him again.  He will try to charge 
    you, even when he is bound, but don't let him intimidate you.  Hold your shot until you 
    have another binding shot, then move again.  The only time you should abandon your 
    binding shot in the middle of charging is if you are too close and he hits you, or you hear 
    him say "There she is".  If you hear this, stop whatever you are doing and get out of the 
    way.  He can hit you with this shot no matter where he is in the room, if he has a straight 
    line.  Pin him three times from at least forty-five degrees apart, and Alyssa's next attack 
    will be her divine finishing attack, just like the one you used to destroy Sledgehammer.  
    If he somehow survives this attack (he might, if you didn't soften him up enough first) 
    just hit him with semi-charged arrows until he dies screaming.  After he is gone, Alyssa 
    gets another piece of the Clover Amulet,  the Clover of Courage.  Like the Clover of 
    Love, this piece increases the amount of Holy Water your Sacred Bottle can hold, so you 
    now have five doses instead of four.  Groovy.
    After the Subordinate is dead, it is time to put let the Spirits of Albert and Dorothy rest.  
    Leave through the fan you stopped earlier.  On the other side, follow the path up the 
    stairs, but don't bother going into the house where you saw Dorothy and Albert killed; 
    they aren't there.  They are in the room where you first saw Dorothy, in locked room of 
    the main house.  So go down the stairs on the other side, past the Lion's Head Fountain 
    (you don't need to save or refill, but feel free), and through the door leading back into the 
    house.  Once in there go forward to the first door, on your right, and open it.  A fairly 
    long and touching cutscene follows.  Their spirits are free, and the evil has been 
    Okay, maybe not all the evil.  It seems the strange guest from the beginning is somehow 
    involved in all this, and doesn't seem too pleased with your interference.  This are about 
    to get serious.
    -c. Chapter Three: "A Rooder Awakening…"
    -1. The Sewers and What Lies Above…
     Well, you were back in Alyssa's house…for a few seconds.  Now it isn't there anymore, 
    and there is a big evil Clock Tower where it once stood.  What's worse, you have been 
    thrown into Hell by the Dark Man, who says that a) you and he will be one, and live 
    forever starting at midnight on your fifteenth Birthday (in two hours, no less), and that b) 
    the Subordinates killed your mum.  Well, maybe this isn't Hell, but it is underground, and 
    it is damp, and it is evil.  So close enough.  Towards the top of the screen is a weird 
    "Tombstone" thing with a Rooder symbol on it, which seems familiar to Alyssa.  
    Towards the bottom of the screen, glittering in the water next to some stalagmites, is a 
    Lavender Water.  The only way out seems to be through a tunnel on the right hand side of 
    the screen, which you must crawl through.  You end up on a small platform in the sewers, 
    of all places.  Look around all you want, but there is only one way to go.  Left (south on 
    the map) is a dead end, so right it is.  There is another platform out of the water 
    diagonally from the platform you started on, so slog towards it.  You will notice a Spirit 
    moving around on the other side of the grate separating this part of the tunnel from the 
    next, just beyond the platform with the ladder on it.  Ignore the ghost and climb the 
    Hmm.  Another short tunnel, this one with a fast-flowing stream in the middle of it, with 
    sidewalks on either side and some short connecting bridges.  Head left (west on the map) 
    on the same side of the stream as you started out on.  You will find a door on your right, 
    just past some stalagmites, so go into it.  The first thing you will notice as you enter will 
    be the saving journal, with a jar of Holy Water next to it.  By all means, refill (if you've 
    used any) and save.  Then continue into the room.  It isn't very big, and there are just two 
    other things of interest in here.  The first is obvious; as you move further into the room 
    there will be a small desk or table on your left (south-east corner of the room, on the 
    map) with a glittering object on it.  The object is the Worker's Key, so take it.  The other 
    point of interest is that behind the fish tank, in the other bottom (south-west) corner, is a 
    hiding spot.  This is about to become your new best friend, but for the time being just 
    note its location, try it out, and head back out of this room.
    Surprise!  This charming fellow is Chopper, and he is a very bad man.  Once the 
    introductions are complete, nail him with some Holy Water, than run back to the room 
    you just left and dive into your hiding spot.  Stay there until you hear him teleport away, 
    then step out, refill your Holy Water, and save.  Then leave the room again.  Cross the 
    short bridge across the stream, then turn left and follow the wall until it branches into a 
    short secondary corridor with a door at the end.  Unlock the door with the Worker's Key, 
    then enter the next room.  
    This is a long corridor that opens onto some scaffolding before branching left and right.  
    For the time being, turn left and down a couple of stairs, then turn left and descend 
    another short flight of stairs into a curving corridor.  Chances are that Chopper will show 
    up while you are in this area, as he never stays gone for long.  Don't let him distract you 
    though; get everything you can from each level before returning to the room with the fish 
    tank to save.  If he gets too close, simply hit him with some Holy Water and get back to 
    work.  So, at the bottom of the short set of stairs, turn right and follow the path, noting 
    the gray box on the wall to your left.  This is a power transfer box with all the wires 
    disconnected, but you don't want to touch the live wires with your bare hands, so leave it 
    alone for now.  Follow this corridor to the end, side-stepping stalagmites as you go; 
    notice, however, the item glittering at the base of the second group of stalagmites, as it is 
    a Sigil Stone.  At the end of this path are a couple of wooden crates stacked on top of 
    each other.  Inside the top one is the Distribution Plan.  This tells you which wires hook 
    to each other in the circuit to restore power.  Unfortunately, you still need some 
    insulating gloves to connect the wires.  First run back to the room with the fish tank, hide 
    there until Chopper leaves, then refill your Holy Water and save.  Then return through the 
    door you opened with the Worker's Key earlier.  
    Go forward until the scaffolding branches left and right.  Earlier, you went left.  This 
    time, go right.  There is a door with "B-3" painted on it. This number is the level you are 
    on, the basement, third level.  Open the door and activate the machinery inside to move 
    this elevator to "B-1" or "B-2".  Choose B-2, then exit the elevator when it stops.  Run 
    down the stairs directly in front of you, then turn left.  As you run down this corridor, 
    Chopper appear directly behind you without warning.  Nail him with some Holy Water to 
    slow him down, then continue until you see a stack of crates on the right side of the 
    corridor, with a red box on top.  Search the red box to find the Crowbar, than keep 
    running, hugging the left side of the screen as you see the right side of the corridor is on 
    fire.  Right beyond this is a seeming dead end, with metal barrels against a blank wall.  
    Luckily, this is an evade point, so run up to the glowing ball over the barrels and hit the 
    action button.  Chopper will temporarily put himself out of your misery.  Take this 
    opportunity to run past him, back down the corridor, and back up the stairs to the 
    elevator.  You can return to B-3 and save, or you can continue directly to B-1.  Either 
    way, B-1 is your next goal, so head there when you are ready.
    As you come out of the elevator, there are stairs directly ahead of you and a path to your 
    right.  You can't get all the way through to your right until the power is on because there 
    is a door with an electronic card reader at the end, so run down the stairs and go left.  
    Chopper will make another very sudden appearance, but for the moment keep running.  
    You will see a big metal closet to your right; run over to this and open it.  Inside are some 
    Insulated Gloves.  Grab them, and while you are stopped, turn and hit Chopper with some 
    Holy Water.  If you want to check out what is at the end of this path, keep going.  At the 
    end is a circuit breaker, but with the power turned off, it won't do much good.  Slip back 
    the way you came, hitting Chopper sparingly with Holy Water when necessary, and run 
    back to the elevator and return to B-3.  Try to save at least one dose of Holy Water for the 
    run back to the "safe" room with the fish tank, because he often comes out of the door 
    ahead of you on this level.  If so, nail him and slip by, run back to the safe room, hide 
    until you hear him teleport away, then refill Holy Water and save.  Whew.  We are almost 
    done with these basement levels, but we are going to need one more thing before we 
    reconnect the power; the key card for the door out of this area.  Luckily, it is nearby. 
    Leave the room a cross the stream, then take a left.  Go past the corridor leading back to 
    the elevator, until you are standing next to a tank that says "Danger" in cloud of steam.  
    You should be just on the other side of the little stream from where you first came up to 
    this level from the sewers.  On the ground there is a heavy metal hatch.  Search, and 
    when it asks if you want to use the Crowbar, say yes.  Go down the hatch, back into the 
    You should immediately see a skeleton at the bottom of the ladder, and some stairs going 
    into the water.  There is a ghost in this area, so be careful.  Search the corpse for a clue to 
    what it needs to be at peace, and you will find a note.  It says that the now-dead guy came 
    to rescue someone, but was captured and locked in the sewer, and to top it all off, he lost 
    his glasses given to him by his loved one.  Go into the water and they should be readily 
    apparent; the spectacles are on a little island across from the corpse, barely out of the 
    water.  Retrieve them and give them back to the corpse, and the freed Spirit will give you 
    the Card Key in return.  Don't bother searching the rest of this little area, as there is 
    nothing to find.  Climb the ladder and return to B-3.  
    Chopper should most likely be waiting for you at the top, so hit him with some Holy 
    Water and run for your hiding place behind the fish tank.  Once he is gone, refill your 
    Holy Water and save.  Then exit the room, and go back through the door across the hall 
    towards the elevator.  We are returning to the circuit box, so turn left where the path 
    branches and take another left down the stairs, then turn right and move forward until you 
    see the circuit box.  Before opening it, take a moment to refresh your memory about how 
    the wires are supposed to hook up by looking at the Maintenance Manual under "Files" 
    on your pause screen; top left corner to bottom right corner, top center to bottom left 
    corner, and top right to bottom middle.  Then open the box and make this happen.  You 
    will see a red light come on over the circuit breaker on B-1, so that is our next goal.  Run 
    to the elevator and go to B-1.
    Once you get there, go straight ahead and down the stairs, take a left, and begin to run to 
    the circuit breaker switch.  Unfortunately, Chopper is between you and it.  Hit him with 
    Holy Water, run past him to the end, and throw the switch to turn the power on.  You are 
    almost done with this section.  Run back the way you came, hit Chopper again with Holy 
    Water, and then run up the stairs on your right when you get to them.  Turn left and 
    follow the path to the end.  Use the card key on the door and run through, and you are 
    free…at least for the moment.  
    This is some kind of storage area.  Directly in front of the door is a Repellant Arrow, so 
    grab it, and then go further on to your room.  On your left is a jar of Holy Water, so refill.  
    Directly ahead is a saving journal, so save.  Otherwise, the room is empty, so go up the 
    stairs, which are the only other exit from the room.  There is a door at the top of the 
    stairs, so go through. 
     The first thing you will notice in this new area is the crying baby.  Go forward and you 
    will see some boxes with a stuffed animal on top.  If you examine it, Alyssa says "A 
    brand-new toy rabbit…It can't be the one I was given when I was a child."  But if you 
    were paying attention when you first looked around Alyssa's room, it sure looks like it.  
    The corridor itself should also seem somewhat familiar.  You are back in Alyssa's house, 
    but the door that you just came out of should have lead to Nancy's room.  The door to the 
    bathroom (which had the dead woman in the tub) is locked, as is the room that was 
    boarded up last time you saw it.  Before exiting through the door that should lead back 
    towards the room with the fireplace, check out the little table across from the bathroom 
    door; there is a statue here that Alyssa's mom gave her, which should be in her room.  
    Strange.  Anyway, leave through the aforementioned door now. 
    Curiouser and curiouser…the fire in the fireplace has been re-lit, and there is a rocking 
    horse in the corner next to it, with gift-bows still attached.  The door leading further into 
    the guest wing is still impassable, and the door to Alyssa's room now reads "Nancy", and 
    is locked.  I am sure that you have figured it out by now, but Alyssa is a little slower on 
    the uptake.  Exit through the door leading out to the staircase.  
    The other door leading into Alyssa's, or rather Nancy's room is also locked, and the one 
    that read Philip…still says Philip, but is now locked, rather than just impassable.  Why 
    were Alyssa and Philip keeping separate rooms?  Apparently they weren't if that baby 
    crying is who we think it is.  Head down the stairs, and a cutscene takes over at the 
    bottom.  Awww.  Isn't that sweet?  Nancy and her baby, and an explanation of what the 
    four clovers each stand for; love, friendship, hope, and  courage.  Well, all good things 
    must come to an end, and this happy scene comes to a bloody one.  Alyssa rushes out the 
    courtyard just in time to see her beloved grandfather, Dick, murder Philip, the father who 
    she never really knew.  And to top it all off, Chopper shows up to rub it in.  Well, to rub it 
    in and to kill her.
    Boss Battle: Chopper
    Chopper takes it really easy on you this time.  He moves somewhat slowly, and doesn't 
    seem to use all of his attacks.  Which is good, because your battlefield is severely limited; 
    you can only run around the courtyard, you can't climb the steps, and you have a couple 
    of trees and the bloody stump that your father died next to there to trip you up.  Luckily, 
    his body is gone.  For some reason the Rooder Portal Square appears, and Alyssa tries to 
    fight Chopper.  I don't know how this is possible, since the Book of Entities II says that 
    the Rooder Portal Square only appears and opens when the Rooder finds the sentimental 
    item necessary to free the Spirit powering the Subordinate.  Oh well, I guess Alyssa can 
    use the Rooder Portal Square is she is really pissed, too.  Anyway, do your best to avoid 
    Chopper and all obstacles as you run around this tiny area.  Since he stalks you fairly 
    slowly, put a bit of distance between you, turn, and hold off your shot until he is right on 
    top of you.  If you had enough time, you will bind him with one of the golden chains.  
    Even if you didn't the charged-up arrow should be enough to knock him back and break 
    off his attack.  Once you have one golden chain binding him, he is a little easier to hit, 
    since he can't go too far in any direction with the chain tethering him.  So move to 
    another location, charge up to the max, and then hit him again.   Just remember to move a 
    short distance after every shot and stay out of his range, and you should have him pinned 
    down in no time.
    Before you can do the coup de grace super-powered kill shot, a cutscene takes over, of 
    Alyssa aiming for Chopper's heart, as he is helplessly bound.  She fires, there is a flash of 
    light, and when it clears…Chopper is free and unharmed.  He laughs at her and tells her 
    she will join all the others, and then opens a pool of inky blackness beneath her.  She 
    sinks from sight and is gone.
    -2. Axe Me No Questions, Tell Me No Lies…
    Alyssa now wakes up in some kind of cemetery, but she is no longer holding her bow; 
    instead, she has a scroll, which Alyssa immediately begins to read.  It is a second set of 
    Dick's notes, explaining how he allowed Nancy to marry Philip to preserve the Rooder 
    bloodline, but was disgusted by Philip's weak will and stupidity, and was outraged by the 
    fact that he and Nancy said that they didn't want to raise Alyssa to be a Rooder.  Dick 
    saw this as shirking one's duties, and blamed Philip for any attempts to avoid this 
    obligation.  Finally, Philip did something to push Dick too far (as we saw), and after the 
    murder he manipulated the police to cover the whole thing up.  Wonderful guy.  
    Once Alyssa is done reading this, it is time to explore your surroundings.   There is a gate 
    behind her, with Celtic-looking crosses on either side.  Examine the crosses to find that 
    each has a hollow impression in it, as if some object goes there.  Then run towards the 
    screen (east on the map) until a cutscene takes over.  The restless Spirits here are the 
    ghosts of Rooders.  That is who you will have to put to rest before you can leave the area.  
    They were all killed by Entities and their subordinates, and at least one of them had her 
    heart removed and used in something called the Ritual of Engagement.  The Spirits 
    disappear before they tell Alyssa what the Ritual is.  Run back through the columns 
    towards the gate you came in through, and you should see an object glittering in the top 
    left hand corner of this area.  Run over to it and pick it up, as it is a Lavender Water, and 
    then return to the hub area, where you woke up.  Run between the two crosses and 
    through the gate behind them.  All that is in this area is a Lion's Head Fountain, so refill 
    your Holy Water if necessary and save, then return to the central area where you woke 
    Now you have a choice; the gate to your right, or the gate to your left, meaning the right 
    side of the screen (north on the map) or the left side of the screen (south on your map).  
    The area to the right is a little tougher, so lets do that one first and get it out of the way.  
    Take the path all the way to the right of the screen, and when you reach the end you 
    should be in an area surrounded by pillars, with a Portal Square in the middle.  Douse it 
    twice with Holy Water, and you will be transported to another area.  
    You may want a quick escape route from here, so when you get to the other side, douse 
    the Portal Square twice again to return to the area you just came from.  Just like the Portal 
    Square in the Red Room in Alyssa's house, once it has been activated from both sides, it 
    remains active until you are done with it, and doesn't need to be activated again.  Run to 
    the Lion's head statue, refill your Holy Water and save, and then run back to the Portal 
    and step through again.    You should be in a misty outdoor area, which looks like another 
    part of the cemetery.  There is only one way to go, so follow the winding path through the 
    grave stones until your reach a more open area.  As you step into this area another 
    cutscene starts, and you find out that not only is Chopper back, and not only does it seem 
    that he killed your mother, but that the whole graveyard is full of his victims.  Yeesh.  
    After the cutscene, start things off right and nail him with some Holy Water.  While he is 
    stunned, run back towards your mother's car, and pick up the note on the ground.  
    Apparently, the Entities need the heart of a Rooder who has reached her fifteenth 
    birthday to perform the Ritual of Engagement thingy, and Nancy sent her away until she 
    would be safely past her birthday, and thus safe.  The Dark Man talked about how when 
    your Birthday came along, the two of you would become one… Chances are they are 
    talking about the same thing.  When you are done reading, run towards the screen, away 
    from the car.  There are Lunar Moth Minions in this area, so if you run into them (or 
    Chopper, of course) hit them with some Holy Water.  Wind your way along the path and 
    eventually you should see a shack.  Run inside and bear to the right, past a partition, then 
    turn left once you clear it to come into the shacks only real room.  There is a curtained 
    hiding place in here, so hide until you hear him teleport away then come out.  
    This cozy little den appears to be Chopper's place, as there are hatchets sticking out of 
    the way here and there.  Directly across from the hiding place is a little desk with The 
    Book of Entities III on top of it.  Take this and read about how Harold Palmer came to be 
    the Subordinate known as Chopper, the leader of all the Subordinates.  On the bed to the 
    right of this little desk is a bed, and on the bed glitters a Lavender Water.  Take this and 
    head back towards the exit of the shack.  Before leaving, make use of the jar of Holy 
    Water to the left of the door, and the save journal to the right of the door.  Then leave the 
    As you do this next section, keep in mind that the shack is the only place to escape from 
    Chopper, so if you are assaulted by him, stun him with Holy Water as needed and run 
    back to the hiding space in the shack, then refill at the jar in the shack once he is gone.  
    Anyway, run back up the path until you reach the car, than take a ninety degree left and 
    run up the left hand path.  The path at the top of the screen is back towards the Portal 
    Square.  After going up the left path for a few yards you will see the Celtic cross thing 
    that Chopper was perched on in the cutscene earlier.  Run around the cross and then turn 
    and look at the other side of it; there are some short steps leading up to a Lion's Head 
    carving, with a button in its mouth.  Take note of this but don't push the button, since you 
    don't know what it does.  In this general vicinity, off the beaten path, there is an 
    Invisibility ring partially concealed behind a gravestone, but after finding this you can 
    continue on your way.  The path will branch left and right, and there will be a podium in 
    the middle.  The podium bears an inscription around the rim that says "Purify thyself with 
    Holy Water and awaken the lions in order".  At the podium, bear right and run until you 
    see a column like the one with the Lion's Head carving you saw earlier.  Run up and 
    inspect it, and you will find another carving, this one with one eye.  Since it said to 
    awaken them in order, and one comes before two, hit this button.  Then turn and run back 
    to the podium, take a left, and go back the Lion's Head carving that you noted earlier; it 
    has two eyes, so it is next.  Finally, run back to the podium, take a left, and run until you 
    see another pillar with another carving.  This one has three eyes, so give the button a 
    poke.  Nothing happens, because there is still the "Purifying with Holy Water" thing to 
    do; not thyself as the podium says, but the podium itself.  Run back to the podium, douse 
    it with Holy Water, and a stone disk appears in a flash of light, floating above it. This is 
    the Compass of Shadows.  Grab this and you are done with this part, and can leave.
    I am sure you have gotten Chopper's attention at this point, but if his music starts while 
    you are almost done with this puzzle, finish it first before worrying about him, because he 
    has to come all the way from the shack.  If you see one of the Minion Moths, toast it with 
    Holy Water.  Now it is time to get out of here.  Run back up the path, past the two-eyed 
    Lion's Head pillar, back towards the car.  When you run into Chopper, hit him with Holy 
    Water, dodge around him, and keep going.  At the car, turn left and head towards the 
    back of the screen.  If all of this sounds like too much trouble, than now might be the 
    time to use an Invisibility Ring, so you can slip right by the axe-wielding maniac and his 
    little winged friends without any confrontation.  Follow the winding path back through 
    the graveyard to the Portal Square, activate it if you didn't earlier, and jump through. 
     However, if you didn't activate it earlier, you might not have enough Holy Water to 
    activate it now, after fighting your way past Chopper and his minions.  So instead of 
    taking a left at the car, take a right and go back into the shack, hide until Chopper 
    teleports, then come out, refill your Holy Water, save, and then run back to the car and 
    keep going past it up the winding path to the Portal Square.  Re-activate it with two 
    dashes of Holy Water, and you are on your way.
    You are now back in the relative safety of the central graveyard where you woke up.  Run 
    back up the path to the central area, and examine the leftmost of the two Celtic crosses to 
    use the Compass of Shadows.  It doesn't do anything without its companion, so don't 
    expect anything to happen, but at least now you don't have to lug it around.  Go through 
    the gate between the two crosses and refill your Holy Water and save at the Lion's Head 
    Fountain.  Return to the central areas and head to the left of the screen.  Go down the one 
    path you haven't explored yet, and at the end is another Portal Square.  Douse it twice 
    with Holy Water, and you are teleported away again.
    Now you are inside an eerie tomb, but as I promised, this one is not as dangerous as the 
    last Portal Square you came from.  In fact, there is no need to pre-activate the Portal 
    Square exit from this area, because you won't need to leave in a hurry.  Against the wall 
    behind where you appear is a small rectangular podium with a hollow depression in it.  In 
    either corner of this room are Jars of Holy Water, should you need a refill.  Note the 
    Rooder sigil on the wall behind your point of appearance, but don't bother searching it or 
    dousing it with Holy Water, because you can't do anything with it…yet.  There is a path 
    straight ahead of your position, a path to the left, and a path to the right.  This is how we 
    will refer to them for this section; in relation to the dias that you started this level on. 
    Therefore, the leftmost path will be left, the rightmost path will be right, and the path 
    between the two will be center.
    This whole area is just big puzzle; at the end of each of the three paths is a Rooder's tomb 
    representing a color and element, with a stone inset into each of the Rooder's sarcophagi 
    that should be the same as the color and element of the tomb that it is in.  There is a red 
    Sky Rooder's tomb, a blue Sea Rooder's tomb, and a yellow Earth Rooder's tomb; 
    however, the blue Sea Rooder's tomb contains the red Sky Stone, the red Sky Rooder's 
    tomb contains the yellow Earth Stone, and the yellow Earth Rooder's tomb contains the 
    blue Sea Stone.  The solution seems simple enough, right?  There is only two problems 
    keeping you from easily solving the puzzle.  First is the Spirits of the Rooders, who are 
    haunting their tombs (each Spirit also colored to represent the tomb they are haunting), 
    and won't rest until the appropriate colored Stone is returned to their tomb, so you will 
    have to dodge them.  The second problem is that for some reason Alyssa can't carry more 
    than one Rooder Stone at a time; this means you just can't go pick up all three and swap 
    them around.
    The key to the puzzle is the rectangular pedestal on the dias.  It has a depression in the 
    top just big enough to hold one stone, so you have to take a Rooder Stone from one of the 
    tombs, return with it to the pedestal, examine the pedestal, and deposit the stone when 
    prompted, then get the next stone from the next tomb, swapping them around until you 
    have all the proper colored stones in the correct tombs.  Here's the specifics; the left path 
    is the Earth Rooder's Tomb, (yellow), but contains the Sea Rooder's Stone (blue).  The 
    central path leads to the Sky Rooder's Tomb (red), but contains the Earth Rooder's Stone 
    (yellow).  The path on the right leads to the Sea Rooder's Tomb (blue), but contains the 
    Sky Rooder's Stone (red). Each path is guarded by a Rooder Spirit (complete with 
    skeletal faces, color-co-ordination, and a gaping hole where their hearts should be), but 
    since there are jars of Holy Water in the main chamber of this area, don't be shy about 
    dousing them if they get to pushy, to keep them out of your way.   In addition the paths 
    on the right and left each have a Repellant Arrow on the ground half way between their 
    entrances and the tombs, so be sure you pick them up.  The simplest answer to the puzzle 
    is this; take the left path to the Earth tomb, take the Sea stone, then return to the central 
    area and place it on the pedestal.  Next go up the central path to the Sky tomb, retrieve 
    the Earth Stone, then return back to the left path and put the Earth stone in the Earth 
    Tomb, in the depression left when you removed the Sea stone.  This will free the Spirit of 
    the Earth Rooder, but none of the Rooder Spirits leave you a gift in return for freeing 
    them.  Ungrateful bitches.  Anyway, now go down the right path to the Sea tomb, take the 
    Sky stone, and return to the central path to the Sky tomb, freeing the Spirit of the Sky 
    Rooder.  Finally, return to the dias with the pedestal, retrieve the Sea stone, then return to 
    the path on the right and return the Sea stone to the Sea tomb to free the last of the 
    Rooder Spirits.  
    When the last Rooder Spirit is gone, the slab of stone with the Rooder sigil on it in the 
    main room slides aside, revealing the Compass of Light.  Go grab it, and you are done, so 
    splash the Portal Square on the floor twice to return to the central graveyard.  Run back to 
    the main area, but before you place the last Compass, quickly detour up the path between 
    the crosses to refill your Holy Water and save at the Lion's Head Fountain.  Then go back 
    to the crosses and put the examine the rightmost cross to place the Compass of Light, 
    which opens a huge Portal Square in the center of the area.  Step through it to go to the 
    last area in this level. 
    This is some sort of giant cavern, and the Portal Square remains glowing at the point 
    where you appeared.  That's good; at least you know you won't be trapped here.  Follow 
    the rocky, narrow path, sidestepping the stalagmites as necessary.  Soon the path leads to 
    an opening in a rock wall, so go through.  Take note of the nifty torches on the wall in 
    here, and pick up the Binding Arrow on the left side of the path.  Then continue forward 
    until a cutscene takes over.
    How's that for some gruesome details?  I'm not sure how Alyssa read the inscription, 
    since it didn't appear to be in English, but the gist of it was that the person performing the 
    Ritual of Engagement must cut out the heart of a Rooder during the first hour of her 
    fifteenth year, and drink the blood from the still beating heart in order to become an 
    Entity.   Nifty.  At the conclusion, a Rooder Square appears with an Old Rooder Arrow in 
    the center of it, at the foot of the dias area Alyssa ends up on at the end of the cutscene.  
    Take a moment to check out the statues on either side of this area (you are going to 
    become really familiar with these chipper folks pretty soon), then grab the arrow and go 
    back the way you came.  As you pass through the gap in the rock wall, the cavern around 
    you begins to collapse, so you have to run back to the Portal Square you came in through 
    before it all comes crashing down around you.  To make it more difficult on you, the 
    camera sways all around the room like Robert Downey Jr., but try to ignore this as you 
    dodge the swaying stalagmites and run back up the path and through the Portal Square.
    Whew.  You are back in the central area of the graveyard again, but unfortunately you 
    don't get a breather.  As you step forward another cutscene takes over, and before you 
    know it, you are in the final boss battle with Chopper again.
    -3. Boss Battle: Chopper (for real this time)
    Two things to notice; first, he is totally recovered from your last bout, and isn't going to 
    take it easy on you this time.  Second, the doors leading to the other parts of this level are 
    now shut and/or blocked by magical barriers, so you only have the central area to use as 
    your battleground.  The gist of this battle is the same as all other boss battles in the game; 
    run around and avoid his attacks until you are given the opportunity to strike, and strike 
    hard.  However, as you will see, you will have to make your own opportunities to do so.  
    He has but a handful of attacks.  If he gets too close when he is chasing you, he will take 
    a couple of swipes with his axe.  Just keep going, being careful not to get hung up on 
    tombstones as you run.  Every once in a while he will shout and attempt a flip attack, 
    where he jumps up, spins around, and comes slamming down with both axes.  If you can 
    avoid this (easy enough; keep moving, and cut sharply to the side when he is in the air if 
    you think he is too close and might hit you) he will be momentarily stunned.  You may 
    have enough time to nail him with a supercharged arrow and pin him, but probably not, 
    so nail him with at least a partially charged arrow if he does this, to whittle his health 
    down.  In fact, pelt him with arrows, even weak ones, whenever you get the chance, 
    because he has enough health that a single group of binding attacks/super attack isn't 
    going to be enough to finish him if he hasn't been injured first.
    The key to pinning him is also when he is the most dangerous.  When Chopper yells 
    "Catch!" he is going to throw his axe at you.  Don't panic; instead, stop, turn towards 
    him, and begin to charge up an arrow.  When the axe comes flying at you, release your 
    arrow to deflect the axe back at Chopper, which will hit, injure, and stun him.  When this 
    happens you will have adequate time to charge up a Binding attack and pin him to the 
    spot.  Then move the requisite forty-five degrees and line up another shot.  Since his only 
    options are to move towards you and try to hit you with his axes, in which case he 
    shouldn't be able to reach you because he is pinned, or to throw his axe at you, in which 
    case you can deflect it back at him again, stunning him once more and setting him up for 
    another pinning attack, it should be much easier to pin him the second and third times.  
    There is only one attack to look out for; sometimes Chopper will throw his axe at you in a 
    sideways arch.  This one is can also be deflected back at him, but your timing and 
    trajectory will have to be precise, since it isn't coming straight at you.  For some, the best 
    option may be to run away from this attack, to live to fight another day, or just take a hit 
    in interest of nailing Chopper with as strong an attack as possible, if your health is strong 
    enough; just ignore the axe and keep aiming at Chopper until the axe hits you or you get 
    fully charged (whichever comes first), as when you get hit the arrow will be released.  As 
    I said, if he is still kicking after taking Alyssa's super attack, just keep pummeling him 
    with arrow charged as much as possible, and he will fall.
    Now there should be another cutscene, almost a replay of the discouraging end of the 
    courtyard battle.  Fortunately, the Old Rooder Arrow is potent, and is enough to finish the 
    leader of the Entities once and for all.  Once he is dead, Alyssa will receive another piece 
    of the Clover Pendant, the Clover of Hope.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to increase 
    your Holy Water supply.  Dammit.  Anyway, now head towards the only open area in the 
    cemetery, the columned area where you saw the Rooder ghosts.  They are finally free, 
    and ask you not to allow the Ritual of Engagement to take place.  Okay ladies, just for 
    you.  Alyssa's mom shows up as well, to congratulate her; with Chopper gone, she is 
    supposed to be free as well.  Unfortunately, the Dark Man shows up and takes her 
    prisoner, revealing that he is the one is going to perform the Ritual of Engagement.  He 
    then teleports Alyssa to the base of a spiraling staircase, where Dennis finds her and gives 
    her the encouragement to keep going.  Alyssa says that she needs all four pieces of the 
    Clover Pendant to defeat the Entities (I can't seem to figure out where she came up with 
    this idea), and there is only one piece left.  Suddenly, the staircase swirls out of sight, and 
    Alyssa and Dennis are left in the middle of a secluded forest path…
    -d. Chapter Four: "Snickety Snack…"
    -1. Hell's Waiting Room
    There is but one way to go, so follow the path into the deep, dark tunnel.  Dennis whines, 
    then runs to catch up.  The tunnel comes out on some urban street, and the name of the 
    area above the map, Hospital Street, doesn't help much either, other than to tell you that 
    there is a hospital nearby.   There is nothing to find, so move forward until a cutscene 
    takes over and the pair of youngsters run into a creepy and derelict hospital, because 
    Dennis is an idiot.  This idiocy is compounded when his "sister" turns out to be one of a 
    pair of Subordinate twins, Scissorman and Scissorwoman, whose images you saw earlier 
    on the statues in the area where you found the Old Rooder Arrow in the last chapter.  
    Yes, those katanas that they are carrying are, in fact, giant scissors separated into two 
    separate blades.  They take Dennis captive, and tell Alyssa that if she wants to see him 
    alive, she must give them her heart, so they can make a new Entity.  They then take 
    Dennis and disappear, leaving Alyssa alone in the hospital reception area.   There is a 
    ghost here, so exercise caution as you explore this area.  The Spirit's corpse is lying on 
    the floor next to a gurney on the far side of the room, but there is nothing you can do for 
    her right now.  Instead, notice the glittering object on the nightstand between the two 
    beds towards the back of the screen (north on the map).  This is the Photo of Mother, but 
    it is not your mother, or the mother of the Spirit in this room, so head towards the left of 
    the screen, and out through the door, into the actual waiting room.  To your left, against 
    the wall near the door, is a couch, and on the couch is a Lavender Water.  To the left of 
    that are some elevator doors that apparently don't open, and a man's corpse on a gurney.  
    His ghost is lingering in this room, so be quick in freeing his soul by giving him the 
    Photo of Mother; in exchange he leaves another Invisibility Band.  To the right of the 
    corpse are the doors leading back outside, which you can't go through.  Continuing 
    around the room clockwise, you should find a jar of Holy Water in the next corner, 
    followed by a saving journal.  Before saving, however, continue to search the counter 
    where the journal is located to find a Labeled Key A on the other end of the counter.  
    Now save, and after exploring the details of this room to your heart's content, leave this 
    room the way you came in (Note: if anyone can make out what is scrawled on the floor 
    around the gurneys near the door in this room, please let me know).  
    Run through this room, ignoring for now the corpse on the floor.  Near the corpse is a 
    note entitled Dennis' Letter to Linda.  This doesn't tell you much other than Dennis was 
    raised by his sister, and that he really cares about her.  Sniff.  Turn right at the letter and 
    continue through the door on the east wall.  Now you will be in a hallway.  To your left 
    are two locked doors, one on the north wall, and on the east wall, in the north-east corner.  
    To your right is a couch at the end of the hallway, and, on the east wall, in the south east 
    corner, stairs going up to the next floor.  Take these now.  At the top of the stairs you will 
    find another couch to your left, and another long hallway to your right.   The first 
    doorway you will come across is on the west wall, to your left, and is locked.  The next 
    one, on your right (east wall), is open, and leads into a bathroom, the middle stall of 
    which is a hiding place that you might need to use later.   The next door is again on your 
    left (west wall), but it is locked, and as you examine it you will be able to see through a 
    crack in it another Portal Square.  Right next to this door is a triple locking mechanism, 
    which you can use Labeled Key A on now, if you would like.  However, you still need 
    two more keys to get the door open, so continue up the hallway.  The next door, on your 
    right (east wall) is closed but unlocked, so go inside.  There is a bed and some equipment, 
    but no objects of interest.  What is of interest is the hole in the wall in the north-east 
    corner of this room, leading into the room to the north.  Crawl through here, and keep in 
    mind for later that this is safe area similar to behind the curtains in the first level; the 
    Subordinates simply can't get in here.  That makes it better than the hiding spot in the 
    bathroom, because you can't panic in here and run from hiding.  Regardless, the door 
    leading out of this room is locked, as is the cabinet in the corner with the object inside.  
    Next to the bed is a nightstand with a Looking Glass on it, which you should take with 
    you.  Now crawl back out of this area and leave the room on the other side.  As you move 
    forward to examine the next room, a cutscene starts, and Alyssa takes interest in the full 
    length mirror at the end of the hall.  As she gazes into the darkened reflection, 
    Scissorman shows up behind her and proceeds to terrorize her.  Instead of panicking, run 
    towards the mirror and hit the examine button.  When it prompts to ask if you want to use 
    the Looking Glass, say yes, and you will be transported through the mirror into another 
    This is, of course, the other side of the mirror, and as such everything on this side of the 
    mirror is exactly the same as on the other side, but in reverse.  That means rooms that 
    were on the left side of the hall are now on the right, and vice versa.  Also, the objects 
    and so on are different on this side.  Furthermore, on this side of the mirror you will be 
    tormented by Scissorwoman instead of Scissorman, and she is hot on your trail.  Mere 
    moments after escaping her brother, you hear her come through the door at the other end 
    of the hall.  Run through the first door, on your left, to escape her.  In here is a message 
    scrawled on the wall backwards, in blood ("Let me out from here!!!"), and a chair with a 
    Release Form in it.  That is all there is to be had in here, so leave once you have the form.  
    Your freedom from the Subordinate was only temporary, as she comes running again 
    once you step back into the hallway.  Run into the first door that you find on the opposite 
    side of the hall, on Alyssa's right as she runs away from the mirror (west wall).  This is a 
    mirror image of the room with the hole in the wall, so make a dash for the hole as soon as 
    you enter the room, hitting Scissorwoman with Holy Water to slow her down, if 
    necessary.  Once on the other side of the wall from the Subordinate, stay there until you 
    here her teleport away and the chase music stops.  While you are waiting for this, you 
    might as well see what you can find in this room on this side of the mirror.  The first 
    thing you will notice is the cabinet is locked with a Sigil, so douse it with Holy Water to 
    unlock it.  Then open the cabinet to find some Lavender Water.  After Scissorwoman is 
    gone, crawl back through the hole and leave the room.  Ignore all the rest of the doors for 
    the time being; the triple locked door that holds the Portal Square on the other side of the 
    mirror is unlocked on this side, but holds nothing except a jar of Holy Water and an 
    endless supply of Minion moths that will bring Scissorwoman Running.  Instead, run to 
    the end of the hall and go down the stairs.  At the bottom you will find the Photo of a 
    child on the sofa, and an open bathroom in the top left hand corner of the area.  Go inside 
    the bathroom and search the sink right next to the door for Labeled Key C.
    At this point, thing can get ugly, because it should be about time for Scissorwoman to 
    make another entrance.  You can hide in the stall at the other end of the bathroom until 
    she goes away, but here is the ugly part; after she teleports away and you go to leave the 
    bathroom, she ambushes you again from the alcove next to the sink, pushing your Panic 
    Meter almost to full!  So here are your options: either don't hide there in the first place, 
    stun her with Holy Water, and run back upstairs and make a mad dash for either the hole 
    in the wall or the mirror; or, you can hide in the stall until she teleports away, use an 
    Invisibility Band and slip past her ambush and out through the door.  If you choose the 
    latter option, you can then refill your Holy Water in the room upstairs where the Minions 
    were, as for some reason they are no longer there (perhaps because she herself is still 
    crouched downstairs, waiting for her chance to jump out at you).  Regardless, you have 
    everything you need from the mirror world, so head back upstairs and leave through the 
    Now, the room to your immediate left as you come through the mirror is locked, as it is 
    the other side of the room you crawled into through the hole in the wall, where you found 
    the Looking glass.  Continue back down the hall to the next door, which is now on your 
    right (west wall).  Go inside, and you will find a room with a corpse in a chair, a Spirit, 
    and the message that you saw earlier ("Let me out from here!!!"), only written forwards.  
    Search the corpse to see what it needs to be free, and find a note that tells you that this 
    poor soul only wanted a Release Form, but every time he got one, it disappeared.  So give 
    him the one you found in his chair on the other side of the mirror, to set his Spirit free.  In 
    return you will find a Sigil Stone on the ground next to him.  Now leave this room, and 
    go through the next door on the other side of the hall, back into the room with the hole in 
    the wall.  Scissorman is waiting for you on the other side of the door, but don't sweat it.  
    Hit him with some Holy Water to stun him, then crawl through the hole in the wall and 
    open the now unstuck cabinet; it must have been held shut by the Sigil on the other side 
    of the mirror.  Inside you find Labeled Key B.  You now have all three of the keys to 
    open the room with the Portal Square, but it is not time yet, as there is still the Spirit of 
    the nurse downstairs to free.  Wait until Scissorman teleports away, then crawl back 
    through the wall and leave the room.  Run all the way to the far end of the hall, go down 
    the stairs, and go back to the reception area, where the nurse's body lies.  Use the Photo 
    of Child on her corpse to free her Spirit, and in return you will receive another Repellant 
    Arrow.  Now go back to the lobby area, refill on Holy Water and save.  Now run back 
    through the reception area, back up the stairs, and examine the lock next to the room with 
    the Portal Square to use the three labeled keys.  Now that the door is unlocked, go inside 
    to find a Portal Square in the middle of the room, and a jar of Holy Water Behind the 
    curtain on the left side of the screen, if you need it.  Now douse the Portal Square twice 
    with Holy Water to activate it, and you will be transported to a new area.
    -2. A Charming Residence
    You are now standing in a barren, rocky area, with thunder crashing in the distance.  
    Follow the path until a cutscene takes over.  The chanting fellow is your Grandfather, and 
    he is heading towards the castle at the end of the rocky gorge.  As you follow, before 
    going through the broken gates, notice the document that he seems to have dropped in the 
    middle of the path.  Pick it up to hear wonderful things about your dear old Grand dad.  It 
    seems that he was at least considering ripping out Alyssa's heart and drinking its blood so 
    that he could gain immortality, and he and Alyssa could be together forever.  Great.  In 
    addition, he was researching something called "The Legend of Lord Burroughs", which 
    also has to do with becoming an Entity, and might be related to the Ritual of 
    Engagement.  Its secret has something to do with a mysterious triangular crest and the 
    letters A, D, and N.  AND?  DAN? NAD? DNA?  Well, we don't know for now, so let's 
    go on.  To the left of the broken gate, before you go through, is another Lavender Water 
    glittering on the ground.  Now go through the broken gates.  To your left is a Lion's Head 
    Fountain, so go over to it, refill and save.  As you continue up the path, Scissorman 
    comes dashing towards you from the way you came.   At the end of the path you are 
    going to need time to break a sigil on a door, and there is nowhere to hide from your 
    enemy, so you have two options; make a run for the door at the end of the path, and hit 
    him with Holy Water whenever he gets close, then break the Sigil and go through the 
    door to escape, or use an Invisibility Band to easily make it to the end of the path, break 
    the Sigil, and escape into the interior of the castle.  I would choose the latter, simply 
    because you might need the Holy Water sooner than you think, but either way, break the 
    Sigil on the door at the end of the path, and then slip through the door.  
    This area is dominated by vaguely obscene looking statues leading up to a spiral staircase 
    in the middle of the room.  There are also three arrows in this room; a Repellant Arrow in 
    the south-west corner of the chamber, a Binding arrow behind the spiral staircase, and 
    another Repellant Arrow next to the door on the east wall.  The spiral staircase is a dead-
    ends partway up, so after collecting the arrows, go through the door on the west wall. 
    This door leads to a short set of stairs on the outside of the building.  As you climb 
    you will be ambushed by Scissorman on the first landing, so stun him with some Holy 
    Water, than continue to run up the stairs.  There is a corpse at the top, with an object 
    glittering next to it.  Ignore this for the moment, because just past that is a dead end 
    where the stone bridge crumbled away, and an Evade Point.  Use this now, and watch 
    Scissorman take a tumble.  When he is out of commission, go back and check out the 
    object next  to the body.  It is an Employee's Memo, which tells us that someone named 
    Ralph and Jemima want the Employee to kill more villagers, though he has killed ten 
    already…now his masters want twenty more.  He hopes that the villagers will be able to 
    escape by slipping through the bars of the kitchen window, which he loosened for this purpose,
    and that those who escape will tell the world about the horrors going on in the 
    castle.  Well, if you examine the corpse you will find that things must not have gone so 
    well, as the body is missing its head.  I guess Ralph and Jemima found out, and were not 
    pleased.  The restless Spirit who haunts the outside areas of this castle is the owner of this 
    body, and would really like its head back.  But you don't have any spare noggins in your 
    inventory at the moment, so it is time to go back the way you came.  When you reach the room
    with the spiral staircase, cut straight across the room and head through the door on the
    opposite (east) wall.
    This leads to another short set of stairs on the outside of the building, and a crumbled path.  
    However, though it looks like a dead end, you can still continue.  On the right side of the 
    screen is an opening, or archway, through the stone wall.  Walk over to this opening and 
    you will notice that there is a very narrow ledge leading along the outside of the path, just 
    wide enough for Alyssa to edge along, so do this now.  A headless ghost moves through 
    the walls of this area, but it can do you no harm as long as you are on the ledge, so ignore 
    it.  About half way along, a stone gargoyle blocks the path, so use the crouch/crawl 
    button to make Alyssa crouch down, and hold this as you slide along the wall, under the 
    gargoyle.  Once past it you will soon see another opening in the wall, so slip through this 
    and back onto terra firma.  This is short lived however; the door at the end of the path is 
    locked.  So now slip through another opening on the right hand side of the screen, near 
    the locked door, and back onto a different part of the ledge.  Easy out along the wall 
    again, until you see a small, barred window close to the ground.  Search this to squeeze 
    through the bars and enter the kitchen. Note: this is the window to the kitchen, which was 
    mentioned in the memo of the headless employee whose body lies in the west branch.  Why didn't
    I just tell you to go east, to the kitchen first, you ask, since you didn't get anything useful 
    from the west branch?  Annoyingly enough, Alyssa can't figure out how to slip through the bars
    into the kitchen until she reads about it in the Employee's Memo. If you had tried, it simply
    would have said "I can't slip through here" or something like that.  It is just another anoying
    little plot thing, like how you couldn't find the Winding Keys behind the picture of Dick until
    it let you, back in Chapter Two.  Oh well.  Onward.
    This is the kitchen. On the table is a Jotting Pad that says "If you wish to open the other path, 
    calm the flames", and what this means you will see soon enough.  As you move towards the other 
    end of the room, the door opens up and Scissorwoman appears.  Quickly move over to 
    the oven on the wall to Alyssa's right (north wall), and use the Evade Point over the oven 
    to pull a Hansel and Gretel on the bitch.  After she is out of commission, examine the fire 
    in the brick chimney to see a crest with an "A" on it in the back of the fire.  Then 
    examine the ashes in the corner opposite the fire to use them to extinguish the fire in the 
    chimney.  Now that the flames are out, grab the "A" Crest.  Scissorwoman's  bony ass is 
    still sticking out of the stove, so you can't grab the object in there yet, but remember to 
    check here later.  Now leave the kitchen through the door Scissor Woman came in 
    through (west on the map).  This new area is but a short hallway, so run to the other end 
    and go through the door on the other end (west wall again).  
    This room has a big fountain in the center, and a bunch of large dining tables.  Along the 
    wall to Alyssa's left (south wall on the map), you will find a jar of holy water and a save 
    journal.  Use them now.  On the end of the table directly between the journal and the jar, 
    there is a candlestick that has been dragged from its original position.  Push it back where 
    it belongs and the statues on either end of the room will stop pouring water and raise out 
    of the ground so that a pair of embossed pillars appear in their place.  One of the pillars 
    bears the letter "N", the other one bears the letter "A".  Hmm.  Place the "A" Crest in the 
    pillar with the "A" on it.  Then exit through the door on the far side of the room from 
    where you came in (just past the "A" pillar, west wall on the map).  There is another short 
    hallway with nothing in it, so run through it and go through the door on the other side.  
    You should now be in a small library.  On the table to the left of the door you will find 
    Dick's Notes 4; it chronicles Alyssa's grandfather's three year search to find Lord 
    Burroughs' castle, and unlock the mystery of the triangular crest that is the key to the 
    Ritual of Engagement.  He also realizes that Nancy must have found his notes by now, 
    and figured out that he plans to tear out Alyssa's heart on her 15th birthday, and has 
    probably begun to take action to stop him.  Once you are done perusing this document, 
    move across the room towards the next table.  You will be ambushed by Scissorwoman 
    before you can grab the glittering object off the table, so nail her once with some Holy 
    Water to stun her, and then grab the object, which is another Lavender Water.  Stun her 
    again if necessary, and then run out the door in the back of the room, where she appeared.  
    You are again on the path outside the castle, and the path ahead is once again crumbled 
    away.  Furthermore, the headless Spirit wanders this area.  Luckily, your pursuer won't 
    follow you out here, so at least you don't have to worry about her.  As you come through 
    the door, step out through the archway on your right.  You do not want to go forward, 
    towards the broken path, however.  Instead you are going to edge back towards the 
    library, until you see another small window near the ground on a narrow ledge.  Examine 
    this area to crawl through, into an area of the library that is behind some bookcases.  You 
    will be able to hear Scissorwoman still looking for you on the other side of the 
    bookcases, but ignore her since she can't get through to where you are.  Embedded in the 
    wall to the left side of the screen is the "N" Crest.  Grab this, and then wait in here until 
    you hear the annoying wench teleport away.  Then crawl back through the window, edge 
    back along the ledge, and re-enter the library through the door.  Run all the way back the 
    way you came until you reach the Dining Room, refill your Holy Water and save.  Then 
    place the "N" Crest in the "N" marked pillar.  This will cause the large painting on the 
    north wall to rise, revealing a secret door behind it.  Don't go through yet, however, as 
    you still need to free the headless Spirit.  Go past the "N" pillar and through the door, run 
    back through the short hallway, and go through the door at the end, back into the kitchen.  
    Search the stove where you had previously fried Scissor Woman and you will find the 
    Charred Skull.  Take this and leave the kitchen through either the window, or through the 
    front door, which was locked from this side.  Step back out onto the ledge through the 
    second archway to your right to edge past the gap in the path, then go down both flights 
    of stairs and through the door at the bottom,  back into the main hall where the spiral 
    staircase is.  Run straight across and go through the door on the other side.  
    Scissorman is back, and you already used the Evade Point here earlier, so you will have
    to think of something else. Either hit him with Holy Water and go about your business as
    quickly as possible, or (the far easier option) use an Invisibility Band to sneak by him.
    Either way, your goal here is to get to the headless corpse, who strives to one day not be
    quite so headless. So help the man out already! But be quick.  In exchange you get a Sigil 
    Stone and a Repellant Arrow; not a bad haul.  Now head back down the stairs and out the 
    door at the bottom.  Cross the large hall one more time and go back through the doors 
    towards the kitchen.  Scissorwoman will be waiting for your return now that the Spirit is 
    no longer patrolling this area, so stun her with some Holy Water and jump back out onto 
    the narrow ledge where you will be safe from her.  Edge back along the ledge towards the 
    kitchen, and the chase music will stop when you are halfway across.  This doesn't mean 
    that the horrible bimbo is gone, however, just that she has decided to take another 
    approach.  As you step off of the ledge and back onto the path on the other side, she 
    comes back through the door from the kitchen.  Though she can't reach you on the ledge, 
    she will also never go away if you are standing on the ledge, so your only option is to 
    douse her with Holy Water again and run past her into the kitchen.  Cross the kitchen as 
    fast as possible and run through the door on the other side.  Keep running down the short 
    hallway, re-enter the Dining Room through the door at the end, and then run halfway 
    across the dining room on the left hand side and refill your Holy Water at the jar.  
    Scissorwoman should still be right on your ass, so if she gets too close, hit her again with 
    Holy Water.  Run out the door on the far end of the room, down the next short hallway, 
    and enter the library through the door on the end.  Weave your way through the library 
    and out through the door on the other side.  Finally step back out onto the ledge, edge 
    back towards the library and re-enter the small area where you found the "N" Crest.  As 
    before, Scissorwoman will look around the library while you are safe on the other side of 
    the bookcase.  After she teleports away, leave through the widow, go back along the 
    ledge, and go back into the library.  Now, run all the way back to the Dining Room, refill 
    your Holy Water, and save.  Finally, go through the door that was hidden behind the 
    Cross the short hallway and go through the double doors at the end.  You should now be 
    in a "U" shaped hall with some suits of armor and four iron maidens.  Run past them and 
    go through the red doors on the north wall.  The door locks behind you, trapping you in 
    this grand but oppressive room.  Notice the ornate triangular symbol that dominates the 
    floor in the middle of this room; this must be the symbol that Dick was talking about in 
    his notes.  As you walk towards the opposite side of the room, Alyssa takes time to 
    examine the impressive painting of a man on horseback.  Search the shelf beneath the 
    painting to find the "D" Crest, the Book of Entities IV, and Dick's Notes 5.  	
    The Book of Entities IV tells us about Lord Darcy Burroughs, who was an incredibly 
    powerful landowner in the beginning of the 17th century.  He married Natalya Hamilton, 
    and had one daughter, Annabel, of whom Lord Burroughs was especially fond.  Not fond 
    enough, however, that when he learned of the Ritual of Engagement, he planned to kill 
    her to achieve immortality.  Unfortunately for him, his daughter died in a carriage 
    accident the day before her fifteenth birthday, which kept Lord Burroughs from 
    performing the ritual and sending him into a murderous rage.  He had the coachman and 
    the maid who were with Annabel at the time of her death killed, and when this didn't 
    make him feel better, he started killing the rest of the staff, and even the villagers.  When 
    Natalya tried to convince him to stop, he killed her too.  The villagers finally decided 
    they had had enough, and formed a mob to kill Lord Burroughs.  He ended up being 
    crushed to death in the cogs of the castle clock tower while fleeing the mob.  Not before, 
    of course, he vowed to plague the world with hate and terror as long as the clock tower 
    continued to stand.  Finally, we have some idea of what is going on.
    Dick's Notes illuminate things even further.  Darcy Burroughs also had a son, from his 
    first marriage, named William, who escaped the castle when his father died.  He went 
    into hiding and changed his name to Billy Brown to avoid being recognized as the son of 
    a mass murderer.  As it turns out, Brown was Dick's last name before he married 
    Francesca Hamilton and took her name, and Billy Brown was his ancestor, making him a 
    direct descendant of Lord Burroughs (and for those keeping track, this wasn't inbreeding, 
    even though Burroughs married a Hamilton, because William was a son from a previous 
    marriage, and thus carried no Hamilton blood).  Furthermore, Lord Burroughs' first name 
    was Darcy, his wife was name Natalya, and their daughter Annabel; D, N, and A.  Dick's 
    first name is…well, Dick, his daughter was Nancy, and her daughter is Alyssa; D, N, and 
    A again.  Small world, huh?  Well, in the words of Buffy, there are two things I don't 
    believe in; coincidences, and leprechauns.  Dick sees all of this as the inevitability of fate; 
    he is meant to complete what Lord Burroughs started, perform the Ritual of Engagement, 
    and become an Entity.
    And if that wasn't bad enough, as soon as you are done reading the documents, the 
    antique projector in the front of the room comes on, and shows the Scissor Twins 
    torturing Dennis, pit and the pendulum style.  When the cutscene is done, search directly 
    below the screen the image was projected onto to find the button that was illuminated by 
    the light from the projector.  Push it and the shelf where you found the Crest and the 
    documents slides up, revealing a hollow beneath.  Go over to it and put the "D" Crest in it 
    to unlock the door to the room and begin a deadly chain of events outside the room.  
    Leave the room through the only doors, but be careful.  
    The suits of armor in the hall outside have burst into deadly motion, swinging their axes 
    in irregular patterns.  The iron maidens are also now activated, but for your benefit; they 
    are now elevators into a dungeon below.  The axes will kill you with a single hit if you 
    don't have any Sigil Stones; if you do have Sigil Stones, every time you are hit you will 
    lose one stone.  So don't get hit.  Unfortunately, the iron maiden elevators need to be 
    used in a certain order to be effective, as doors in the chamber below need to be unlocked 
    and opened from the correct side before you can move around the chamber freely.  The 
    elevator directly next to the door isn't useful right now, since the area that it leads to is 
    blocked off by locked doors that can only be unlocked from the other areas reached by 
    other elevators.  Instead, first cross across the top of the room without passing any active 
    suits of armor; the one in the middle of the north wall is dormant.  Go down through the 
    elevator here (north-west corner) into the room below, and move forward until you reach 
    a metal barred door.  It is locked from this side, so unlock it and open it.  Now go back to 
    the elevator and return to the hallway with the armor.  Now you need to run south, past 
    three suits of armor, and go down the elevator in the south-west corner.  To do this 
    without getting hit, wait until both suits of armor that you can see have both just moved; 
    the one closest to the north swings with and up and down motion, and the next one 
    further south swings side to side.  After each swing you will have a few seconds to move, 
    so as soon as you see these two move almost at the same time, dodge around them and 
    sprint south.  The third one is also pretty easy to avoid; just keep moving.  Once you 
    reach the elevator on this end (right next to the door you first entered this area through) 
    get into elevator and return to the basement.  Move towards the back of the screen, and 
    the door to this cell will fall outward.  Move out into this hallway, and continue until you 
    reach another door, which is also locked from this side.  Unlock and open it, and now you 
    have free access to three out of the four elevators.  As you step through the now unlocked 
    door, you will see a bloody trail on the floor.  Follow it to the elevator in the north-east 
    corner of the room and ride it back up to the hall.  You are once again next to the red 
    doors.  The last of the elevators lies to the south of this, so use the same tactics as before 
    to get past the swinging axes to reach the south-east end.  Go down the last elevator.  To 
    your left is a bench with a skeleton on it, but there is no restless Spirit here, and no items, 
    so ignore it.  Move to your right and go through the open doorway.    You will see a lot of 
    blood on the ground, and right above that, a switch on the wall.  Get ready for a mad dash 
    before you throw the switch.  It will raise two iron portcullises  that are on a short timer; 
    you will have to dash straight across the room without pausing for an instant, moving in a 
    straight line despite the changing camera angles, without getting hung up on anything.  
    Otherwise the gates will come crashing back down before you reach the other end, and 
    you will have to use the elevator in the north-east corner again, run south past the 
    gauntlet of axe-y death again, and try once more.  So throw the switch when you are 
    ready and run like mad, as straight as possible.  When you make it you will know; there 
    will be a cutscene of the gate crashing down right behind Alyssa, startling her and 
    knocking her on her ass.  Once this is done, get up and go through the only door in the 
    You have finally reached the room with Dennis and the goofy twins.  They apparently 
    took the time to make a animatronic dummy resembling Dennis (seems kind of redundant 
    to me), which they chop in half with the pendulum blade.  Too bad it wasn't the real 
    Dennis, but moments later they flip over the alter to show you that he is still alive, and in 
    the same predicament.  They tell you he will live if you will give them your heart (yeah, 
    right), and then surround you on the stairs, but before they can grab you, the section of 
    stairs you are standing on collapses, depositing you into yet another sub-chamber.  You 
    can't go back the way you came, and the door on the side of the room is broken, so move 
    forward until you see and intact door, with a book on a pedestal to the left of it.  The book 
    is the Book of Entities V, and it tells you about Ralph and Jemima, Oriental Twins who 
    served sadistically in the employ of Lord Burroughs, exercising their knowledge and 
    fascination with bladed weapons (scissors in particular) to eviscerate and dismember 
    victims who were still alive.  When Burroughs was killed, the twins were cornered and 
    stoned to death by the angry mob, but were resurrected together by the same Entity so 
    that they might be Subordinates in death.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Scissorman 
    and Scissorwoman.  After reading this, go through the door at the end of the room.  
    Okay…the door leads into an exact replica of Dick's inner office, the one behind the wall 
    of masks.  Search the bookcases on the left hand side of the room to find pictures that 
    Alyssa drew for her beloved Grampy, and a story about the big bad wolf.  Look carefully 
    at Alyssa's drawing of the big bad in the background, and you will notice that it looks an 
    awful lot like the Dark Man who dragged Alyssa into all of this.  Once you are done 
    looking, the bookcase where you found the drawing slides back to reveal yet another 
    secret chamber behind it.  In here there is a desk, and some books, and some pretty 
    drawings that Alyssa made as a little girl…and a ladder leading up.  Climb the ladder to 
    climb up through a hidden panel in the floor of the room with the projector.  A fairly long 
    and creepy cutscene commences, showing you how your grandfather performed a ritual 
    to join with the shade of Lord Burroughs to make the circle of evil complete; Burroughs 
    and Dick will perform the Ritual of Engagement to create a new Entity together, thus 
    finally fulfilling Burroughs shattered dream.  At the end of the cutscene you once again 
    see Ralph and Jemima on the projection screen, taunting you with poor Dennis.  Wait a 
    second, am I telling you that you have to go past those axe swinging suits of armor, back 
    into the basement, and dash past those timed iron gates all over again?  Yes I am.  Go 
    back out of this room, carefully time your dash past the suits of armor into the south-east 
    corner, go back down into the basement through the iron maiden, cross to the switch, pull 
    it, and run like hell, straight as an arrow to the other side, just like before.  You are 
    treated to the same cutscene of Alyssa falling on her ass, so get up and go through the 
    door for the last time.
    As you start down the stairs, Dennis is removed temporarily from danger, and the battle 
    against Scissorwoman begins.
    -3. Boss Battle: Scissorwoman
    Don't even bother trying to pin this little bitch, as she teleports away whenever she is 
    cornered, and her Entity can't be pinned down and destroyed until you take down her 
    brother, since they share an Entity.  Just focus on staying out of the way of her attacks 
    and pummeling her with arrows as strong as you can charge them.  Like most 
    Subordinates, she will charge at you and attempt to slash you, and as she is charging is a 
    good time to get a shot off, no matter how weak.  A strong enough attack will knock her 
    back long enough for you to move out of the way as well. Also like the other 
    Subordinates, these attacks are pretty easy to avoid if you keep moving.   Unlike other 
    Subordinates, she doesn't pause after taking a swing at you, but instead teleports away, 
    sometimes really close to you, and tries again.  She moves fairly quickly, so stay on your 
    toes and take shots when you can get even a moment.  If she does connect with an attack 
    she dances and claps for a few seconds, proud of herself, so if you are quick you can get a 
    shot off before she teleports away again.  
    Her secondary attack is tougher, though less frequent.  She will teleport to the middle of 
    the chamber and begin swinging her blades around to start a whirlwind, which will knock 
    down and damage Alyssa if it connects.  Move as far away from her as possible and try to 
    line up a shot, or hit her before she gets the whirlwind started to stop this attack before it 
    begins.  Lining up a shot once she has started the whirlwind is harder than it sounds, 
    because it seems to screw up the auto-aim; instead of aiming at her automatically when 
    you hold down the attack button, Alyssa will aim straight ahead.  So you will have to line 
    up the shot manually, which is hard to do while still staying out of the range of the 
    whirlwind.  Furthermore, weaker shots will be deflected by the whirlwind before they 
    reach her, so you will have to charge up your attacks quite a bit before an arrow will 
    punch through the wind and hit her.  If you wait for about fifteen or twenty seconds, 
    Jemima will stop her whirlwind attack anyway, and will go back to teleporting around.
    Once you have her on the ropes, and she has little life left, she will start teleporting faster 
    and closer, so that you have less time to react.  Just hit her with arrows often and keep 
    moving, and she should be dead in no time.
    Once she is down, Alyssa runs to Dennis (who is no longer hidden beneath the altar, it 
    seems) and begins to free him, using one of Jemima's blades.  Suddenly Ralph shows up, 
    and is none to pleased that you killed his sister.  Now it is time for you to fight this 
    effeminate albino.
    -4, Boss Fight: Scissorman 
    Luckily, he moves a little slower than his sister, and doesn't teleport.  This is good 
    because he is also a lot tougher to kill than his sister, and you are going to need to pin 
    him down.   As is always the rule during boss battles, keep moving to avoid his ordinary 
    attack, as he methodically stalks you and swings his blades when he gets near.  He has a 
    number of attacks, including a powerful one that comes with little warning, in which blue 
    energy blades erupt from the ground in a straight line away from him.  If this happens 
    while you are running away, jag left or right to avoid this attack.  He also has a number of 
    normal attacks, such as a swipe or a jump and swipe attack when he gets close, but these 
    all amount to the same thing, and are easily avoided if you keep moving.  The really 
    dangerous attack comes when he says "I've got a present for you!", which means that he 
    is about to unleash a devastating scything energy attack.  He charges up with a blue glow 
    around himself for a short while, and when he is done, blue blades of energy tear through 
    the air in an arch all around the room.
    While he is attempting to charge up this attack is the best time to hit him with a pinning 
    arrow attack.  The second that you hear him say "I've got a present for you", turn and 
    begin to charge up an attack.  Hold it until it is fully charged, with the little tail of energy 
    coming off of it, then nail him.  Move away from him in about a forty-five degree arch, 
    then charge up another attack.  Keep in mind he can still strike with the blue energy 
    blades from the ground, even when pinned, so if this attack starts, hit him with an arrow, 
    whether it is fully charged or not, to disrupt his attack, and then immediately start 
    charging another arrow.  It may take a few attempts to get him full pinned, but this 
    actually a good thing, since you need to whittle down his health before the final attack 
    can kill him.  In addition to when he is charging up for the scything energy attack, it is 
    also very possible to injure or even pin him if he gets far enough away from you.  Since 
    he doesn't teleport around like his sister, any time he comes in for an attack, he charges 
    in a straight line, so long as nothing is in his way.  So if you put some distance between 
    you, then charge up an attack that you are aiming at him, you just may have enough time 
    to bind him with an energy chain.  Even if you don't have enough time, the charged 
    arrow will knock him back and stun him in addition to wearing away at his health.  In 
    fact, if your time is right, you can keep hitting him with arrows and stunning him until he 
    breaks off to make a more powerful attack.  
    No matter how you do it, once you have him pinned once, keep moving around the room 
    and bind him with energy chains from every angle until Alyssa finally unleashes the 
    devastating final attack.  If this doesn't finish him, pummel him with more arrows until 
    he is done.  Then there will be another cutscene to end the chapter.
    Alyssa tries to cut the last of the ropes binding Dennis to the altar, but Ralphy isn't done 
    yet, and grabs Alyssa, pinning her against the wall, ready to take revenge for his sister.  
    Before he can, Dennis frees himself and activates the pendulum, which swings forward 
    and skewers the subordinate, destroying him.  Wow!  He finally made himself useful!  
    The twins prove to be just as irritating dead, and their giggling ghosts remain, riding the 
    swinging pendulum blade, until both the blade and its riders disappear in a flash of light.  
    This time you don't even get a section of the Clover Pendantyou're your troubles, so 
    Alyssa is still short one.  Alyssa shows her gratitude to Dennis by hugging him, but then 
    he ruins his big moment by acting like a jackass, having another one of his spaz attacks 
    on the altar.  Mercifully, his shenanigans are ended when he and Alyssa are transported 
    back to the foot of the spiral staircase, which leads up to the clock tower.  The Dark Man 
    makes another appearance, and Alyssa tells Dennis that the Dark Man is actually her 
    grandfather.  The Dark Man tells Alyssa that to end this she must meet him at the top of 
    the Clock Tower, now.  Alyssa shrugs off the whining Dennis, and begins her final 
    -e. Chapter Five: "Happy Birthday! I got you a gaping chest 
    -1. Climbing the Tower of Power
    The stairway is broken, but luckily a rope is lowered so that Alyssa can climb it to the 
    top.  Climb until you run out of stairs, and when you reach the edge a cutscene will take 
    over that shows Alyssa leaping out to grab the rope, which causes a winch to activate, 
    bringing her up into the machinery of the Clock Tower.  The first thing you will notice 
    (besides the giant, grinding gears, is a Binding Arrow lying on the floor of the Machine 
    Room, so pick it up.  Now you have to find a way through the gears (very likely the same 
    gears in which Lord Burroughs met his untimely, if much deserved, end), so crawl under 
    the large horizontal gears and make your way to the left until you see the camera angle 
    shift and you can stand again.  Run a little further, and again crawl, this time under the 
    shaft of a vertical gear.  Just past this is a door with torches on either side, which you 
    must go through.  
    Now you are outside the face of the Clock.  To your left you will see a ladder, which you 
    can't yet climb, and a gargoyle with a lever sticking out of its back, which you can not 
    yet reach.  Keep going to the left until you reach the feet of the giant statue of the 
    demon/goat thing, next to which you will find a Repellant Arrow.  Now notice the small 
    gap behind the feet of the statue, a space just large enough for Alyssa to crawl through.  
    Do so no, and throw the lever that you find on the other side.  This opens a hatch up high 
    in the clock's face, and moves the statue with the lever closer to the edge, where Alyssa 
    can reach it. Now crawl back out past the statue's feet, and throw the lever on the 
    gargoyles back to raise the ladder.  Move around to the front of the ladder and climb it to 
    the next level.  Open the doorway ahead of you, and go through.  
    Now you are in the upper Machine room, and instead of going under the gears, you are 
    going to need to go on top of them.  First, use the save point to the left of the door; better 
    safe than sorry.  Once this is done, climb the short flight of stairs to the first gear and 
    jump on.  Now it is just a matter of controlling your run along the gears as they spin.  At 
    the end of the last of the horizontal gears is a vertical gear; while staying in place by 
    running in the opposite direction than the gear is spinning, hit the action button near the 
    vertical gear to jump on and ride it to the top.
    Now it is time for the final confrontation.  The Dark Man is waiting for you, and soon 
    transforms to show you one of his true forms, that of Alyssa's grandfather.  He says he 
    can't wait to be one with her for all eternity, and tells her why he had so much trouble 
    finding Burroughs' castle; the Castle once stood where the Hamilton estate now stands.  
    He actually lived on top of the remains of the castle before he left to look for the castle.  
    He said that it was no coincidence, but instead the Entities doing.  He takes this as a sign 
    that he and Alyssa were always meant to become an Entity together, but Alyssa denies 
    him, and demands to see her mother.  Dick points to an area below, where Alyssa's 
    mother stands, still and pale.  Alyssa runs down a flight of spectral stairs that disappear as 
    she passes, only to find that her mother has been turned to stone.  She is standing on the 
    edge of the triangular symbol that Dick search for the mean of for so long.  Dick, now 
    transformed into Lord Burroughs,  says that he had no choice but to turn her to stone, 
    since she had betrayed him so much; first by marrying the weak-willed Philip and again 
    by trying to keep Alyssa from him.  As he is saying this, the camera cuts away to show 
    Dennis coming up through the bowels of the Clock Tower, looking for Alyssa.  Lord 
    Burroughs summons up an altar in the middle of the now glowing triangle, and suddenly 
    Alyssa is flung into the air, her cloths transform into the flowing white robes like 
    something out of a Greek tragedy, and she is bound to the altar.  To further drive home 
    that Alyssa is at his mercy, and no one can help her, Burroughs shatters the statue that 
    was once Nancy with his sword, and the last of the pieces of the Clover Amulet is 
    revealed in the wreckage, before Burroughs sends it skittering over the edge into the 
    lower parts of the Clock Tower.  He then transforms back into Dick, this time dressed in 
    red ceremonial robes, and begins chanting the Ritual of Engagement, the ghosts of all of 
    the Subordinates chanting in counterpoint.  Things are looking pretty bleak.
    But no!  Its red-headed wanker boy to the rescue, as he throws Alyssa the last of the 
    pieces of the Clover Amulet, which she promptly joins with the others to reach her full 
    potential, sending the Subordinate ghosts reeling back into the netherworld.   
    Unfortunately for Dennis, he also thought it would be a good idea to jump on Burroughs' 
    back, who has now transformed back into his Lord Burroughs persona, and Dennis is 
    soon tossed over the ledge, back into the bowels of the Clock Tower.  He did his part 
    though, and Alyssa takes out her bow and leaps over the old man to safety.  Thanks to 
    Dennis, she is finally ready to face Lord Burroughs in battle.
    -2. Final Battle: Lord Burroughs
    First things first; this bad boy has two full health bars that must be whittled down before 
    he can be defeated.  This means beating him down for a while, Binding him to one spot, 
    and nailing him with a divine final shot, and then doing the whole thing again.  It is like 
    two boss battles in one, except that you only get the one health bar for yourself.  
    Furthermore, Burroughs isn't easy to pin down even once, let alone twice.  But it can be 
    done, especially with the help of all those Special Arrows you have been saving.  
    Here is the big problem; Burroughs' normal ranged attack can Bind you to one spot, the 
    same way your fully charged attack will a Subordinate (including Burroughs).  If he is 
    out of range to attack you with his sword, he will make an odd laughing noise as he 
    charges up and attack, and then releases a ball of purple energy to bind you to the spot.  If 
    he can get three bands attached to you, it is game over, because he can release a final 
    devastating attack just like you can, and you have a lot less health than he does.  So your 
    job is to not be there when the ball of energy gets there.  Move back and forth, stopping 
    periodically to hit him with some weak attacks, then get moving again.  A half charged 
    arrow will stop his attack and knock him back momentarily, if you can get your attack off 
    before he releases his.  Every once in a while he will stop and laugh at you, a deep 
    throaty laugh instead of the short cackle that precedes one of his energy attacks.  This is 
    your opportunity to hit him with a binding attack.  Hang in there until it is fully charged, 
    even if he is charging up a pinning attack of his own.  If you timed it properly, you 
    should have enough time to get your pinning attack off before he releases his.  Now move 
    forty five degrees and try to get another binding attack in, while dodging his.  Even if you 
    can't bind him fully right now, it is best to keep pummeling him the best that you can, to 
    get his health down.  
    If he hits you with one Binding shot, simply break off your attempts to attack and focus 
    on dodging until the Binding Chain wears off.  One Binding shot doesn't limit your 
    movement to much, so long as you keep moving back and forth in a small space.  If you 
    think an attack is about to hit you while you are bound, run to the end of your tether and 
    keep pressing in that direction, and the energy band holding you in place should jerk you 
    off your feet.   If you time this right, the next attack will pass over your head instead of 
    hitting you.  Keep dodging as best you can until the Binding wears off, then continue 
    your pattern of dodging and firing.  If he gets two Binding shots attached to you, your 
    best bet is to just keep moving, at try to get jerked off your feet so that there is less 
    chance that the third attack will hit and bind you.  The key to this first portion of the 
    battle is to take no risks; don't charge your attacks longer than you have time to, or you 
    will get pinned to the spot before you have time to move.  Hit him with weak to moderate 
    arrows, and try to pin him only if you are sure you have time.  If he gets close he will 
    slash you with his sword in addition to the above attacks, and even stab you when you are 
    on the ground.  In addition, he can pick you up by the neck and drain a significant amount 
    of life from you.  
    After you have reduced his first health bar down to half, he adds a nasty attack to his 
    repertoire.  He will yell "There is no escape!", and moments later a viscous bloody mass 
    will rise from the spot where you were standing.  If you are within its diameter it will 
    hold you in place long enough for Burroughs to use his energy attack to bind you in 
    place, so when you hear him say "There is no escape", just run as far as you can in any 
    direction, so long as it is a straight line and not directly towards Burroughs.  Always pick 
    the direction where you have the most distance to run in, to avoid getting hung up and 
    caught in the red goo.  Otherwise, keep up with the tactics mentioned previously, dodging 
    and firing, but always moving.  Soon his energy attack will get even more dangerous, as 
    it will split into three balls, one going straight and the other two going tangentially.  He 
    only does this rarely, however, so just dodge them the best that you can and keep up with 
    the strategy above.
    Once you get his health bar so that it is all red, this means he is half dead.  Now it is time 
    to lay down a little ass whooping.  Remember all those arrows we have been saving?  
    Well, it is time to use them.  Special Arrows are activated by pressing the R1 button 
    instead of the normal attack.  Unfortunately, you can't choose which arrows you want to 
    use, as they are used in the order that they were picked up.  Still, the Repellant Arrows, 
    even though they do not Bind, do a nice chunk of damage, which is very nice considering 
    how long it took to get him down to half hit points.  When you use a Binding Arrow, you 
    will know, as it glows red and places an energy chain on Burroughs when it hits, just as 
    though you hit him with a fully charged regular arrow.  When you do hit him with a 
    Binding Arrow, you need to move to another spot at least forty-five degrees away to bind 
    him with a second arrow, just like normal.  Keep up your normal pattern of fire and 
    dodge, exactly as before, except using Special Arrows instead of your regular attack.  If 
    you do the Binding right (i.e. moving far enough after each Binding shot) you should 
    soon be able to pound him into the ground with the final attack.  
    Unfortunately, though this half of the battle should go quicker, Burroughs gets tougher.  
    Once you start eating into his final health bar, he gets a number of new attacks.  First of 
    all, he can execute any of his normal attacks without warning now.  He will normally 
    give you a warning such as the taunt or the laugh, but sometimes now he won't, simply 
    attacking without warning.  This means that the puddle of goo can appear right under 
    your feet without warning, effectively trapping you.  He also can take time to shrug off 
    your Binding attacks with a little burst of energy, freeing himself of all your hard work 
    and wasting your Binding arrows.  Luckily, he will also occasionally stop and say "Are 
    you ready to give up now?", which gives you a chance to charge up a regular arrow and 
    nail him in the kisser.  The manuever that he uses to free himself of your binding shots
    can also be used to your advantage, if you are fast.  Burroughs will build up this blue 
    glowing energy field around himself, and when it is fully charged, he releases the energy
    and breaks your binding chains.  However, he doesn't do any other attacks simultaneously, so
    he is also vulnerable at this time.  If you want to stop him from breaking free, just hit him
    with a Repellent or partially charged arrow to interupt his attempt to free himself.  It is in
    your best interest to not do this however, as you can keep him busy if he is constantly trying
    to break free of the binding chains.  So what you do is begin to charge an arrow as soon as you
    see him gathering the blue energy, and hold it until he bursts free.  When he does so, he will 
    be floating a bit of the ground for a moment, before landing and resuming attacks.  If you hit 
    him with a fully charged arrow as soon as his feet hit the ground, you can bind him anew. This 
    means he will have to either stay stuck or try to break free again.  If he tries to break free 
    again, simply use the same strategy to pin him once more.  Using this strategy and careful timing,
    you should have him pinned down in no time.If you never pin him completely, or your final attack 
    doesn't finish him, and you are out of special arrows, don't fret too much.  Just go back to your 
    original strategy and keep hammering away until he falls.
    Unfortunately, that isn't the end of him.  He disarms Alyssa at the last moment and 
    knocks her over the ledge, but Alyssa catches herself before plummeting to her doom.  
    Burroughs gives her another chance to submit, but rather than do this, Alyssa tries to let 
    go and fall to her death.  Burroughs catches her arm and stops her from falling, and 
    Alyssa gets free of his grip, back on firm ground.  A spectral voice says "Alyssa, take 
    strength from me…".  Now you have to run away from Burroughs and make your way 
    around the pit in the center to the left hand side of the screen, where the rubble of 
    Alyssa's mother lies.  Just keep moving no matter what, and when you reach the rubble, 
    the final cutscene takes over.  	
    Her mother's head under her arm, Alyssa kills Burroughs with a sword made of blue 
    flame, and her mother is temporarily returned to life, to tell her daughter how proud she 
    is.  The Clock Tower crumbles around them, along with the remains of their home, and 
    Alyssa loses consciousness.  When she awakes, she is in a field full of clover, back in her 
    own clothes, and Dennis is there with her.  She has her mother's Clover Amulet to 
    remind her that it wasn't a dream, and as she embraces Dennis she thinks to herself: 
    "Mum, we did it…"  And that is that.
    Congratulations!  You either beat the game or finished reading this ridiculously long 
    document.  Or both.  Either one is a great accomplishment, and you should be proud.
    -f. Secrets and Mysteries
    Once you beat the game, you will unlock a few new features.  First of all, there will be a 
    new section on the main start screen, marked "Gallery".  This allows you to watch all of 
    the cinemas and cutscenes in the game, as well as stills and Production Art from the 
    game's development. 
    Secondly, you will receive a key to the wardrobe in Alyssa's room at the beginning of 
    your next ("Clear") game.  There are five outfits in the wardrobe that you can choose 
    from, and they are, in the North American version of the game; the Greek Dress from the 
    battle against Lord Burroughs, a Denim Cowgirl outfit (still with a mini-skirt), a pretty 
    cool Rooder Warrior outfit (still REALLY short though), a fishnet and halter top Whore 
    outfit (on a fourteen year old girl…real nice guys), and the her standard schoolgirl outfit.  
    Apparently Alyssa won't wear anything that doesn't give her a nice breeze on her cheeks.  
    This is true for the outfits in the Japanese version of the game as well; the Greek Dress, a 
    Blue Sailor school uniform, a White Sailor school uniform, a Santa's Helper Christmas 
    costume, and her regular school uniform.  Jimmeny.
    Also, when you play through this "Clear" game, the difficulty is a lot harder.  Alyssa's 
    Panic Meter fills faster, the Subordinates are faster and have new hiding places, carry 
    different, nastier weapons, and are tougher to kill in the Boss Battles.  All in all, it makes 
    for a much tougher experience.
    That's it for secrets, now what about Mysteries?  Actually, I lied.  There are no real 
    mysteries left at the end of this game, other than what Alyssa has against pants, why her 
    family was living in the guest wing of her house, and why the men take the women's last 
    names when they marry.  To these questions, there may not be a real answer… 
    -g. Final Review
    Obviously I enjoyed this game pretty well, or else I wouldn't have written over fifty 
    pages of text about it.  I felt that the game's story, game play, sounds and graphics were 
    overall pretty good.  It did have a few issues, which I will outline here, in no particular 
    order.  First of all, I felt the game was stronger in the first two chapters than it was in the 
    last three.  They set up the deal for us early on; Alyssa moves from era to era, defeating 
    Subordinates by freeing the tormented Spirits who give them their power.  She frees the 
    Spirits by finding their Sentimental Items, and then, and only then, will the Rooder Portal 
    Square open to give her the divine weapon needed to fight and defeat the Subordinate.  
    However, after Chapter Two, there are no more Sentimental Items, and thus, she 
    shouldn't be able to fight the Subordinates.  In Chapter Three, the Old Rooder Arrow 
    works in roughly the same way, in the sense that until you find it, you can't defeat 
    Chopper, but it is not a Sentimental Item per ce.  In Chapter Four, there is no item 
    needed, you simply need to get to the Dungeon and defeat the twins.  Also, what was the 
    deal with the Sewers on level three?  Why did you end up there and what was their 
    significance?  They seemed to simply be beneath the Hamilton House, since they led up 
    into it, but why did they lead up into an area that should have been Nancy's room?  And 
    the castle in Chapter Four; obviously it was Burroughs' castle, which occupied the space 
    where the Hamilton House now sits.  But when is it?  Is it in the early 17th century, when 
    Lord Burroughs ruled, as would be suggested by the headless corpse still in the hallway 
    and the general antiquity of the place?  Or is it modern day, as would be suggested by the 
    presence of the movie projector?  If the castle was destroyed, and the Hamilton House 
    built on top of it, how did Dick find Burroughs inner chamber and join with him?  Plus, 
    Burroughs said that he would continue to spread pain and suffering as long as the Clock 
    Tower remained standing…but the Clock Tower must have been destroyed if the 
    Hamilton house was built where it once stood.  Things like this probably could be 
    explained, but weren't.  The game was simply stronger in the earlier Chapters, when 
    Alyssa was time-hopping.  The story was still well done and engaging, it just had a few 
    holes in it.
    The graphics were excellent overall, with a few exceptions.  Alyssa's model looked good, 
    with realistic animations and cloth effects, such as her skirt.  The environments and 
    backgrounds were moody and well rendered.  The Subordinates looked universally well 
    done, at least from a technical standpoint, but they were also one of the disappointing 
    aspects of the game visually.  The Subordinates were supposed to be frightening, and the 
    first two, Sledgehammer and The Corroder, were.  Chopper looked rather cool, but he 
    didn't fit the ambience of the game at all.  I would have liked to see a Leatherface or a 
    Michael Myers, some kind of creepy blade-wielding maniac.  Instead, Chopper was 
    obviously very anime influenced, and would have looked more at home in a game like 
    Devil May Cry.  The Scissor Twins were not frightening at all, but instead rather goofy.  
    Actually, Scissorwoman was kind of a cutie, mass slaughter aside.  And Scissorman kind 
    of pranced around the level, looking like an effeminate albino ninja.  They, for their part, 
    would have done well as comic-relief characters in the Onimusha series.  And as for Lord 
    Burroughs…his look fit the character pretty well, but I felt like I was getting tossed 
    around by an evil Captain Morgan.  Which actually happened a few times during college, 
    but only metaphorically.  Seriously, his model looked good, and he was imposing…but 
    not frightening.
    The Spirits were the other disappointing feature, both sound and graphics-wise. The idea 
    that the Spirits would have a visual clue as to what you needed to set them free (such as 
    the Rooder Spirits who had hexagon-shaped holes where their hearts should be, for 
    example) was a good one, but the Spirits themselves looked cheesy and generic.  They 
    were all interchangeable, having nothing really to differentiate one from another.  They 
    should have at least used more polygons to render them, as they really didn't look like 
    anything the original Playstation couldn't have done.  As for sound, their moans and 
    cackles were pure Scooby Doo.  They certainly didn't sound like the moans of the 
    damned.  One would have thought that after seeing how a game like Fatal Frame did 
    ghosts, making them really creepy with their own individual looks and sounds, that the 
    designers might have taken a page out of their books.  As it was, Clock Tower's ghosts 
    just fell flat.
    Sound was another mixed bag.  Besides the Spirits, the sound in this game was done 
    really well, with realistic noises for each kind of surface Alyssa walked on, for water, 
    storms and so on.  But the Subordinates themselves should have had more than a handful 
    of phrases and noises that they made, because most of them were creepy the first few 
    times you heard them, but went quickly from creepy to irritating after a few repetitions.  
    The snuffling noise that Sledgehammer made was the only one that didn't get out after a 
    while.  When I was hiding from Chopper behind the fish tank in the first part of Chapter 
    Three, I heard him say "Oh, clever girl!" literally six times before he finally teleported 
    away.  But the one who wins the Irritation Prize is Scissorwoman; if I heard "Snickety 
    Snack" or "Slice and Dice" one more time, I was going to go homicidal myself.  
    Other than the things mentioned above, I thought that the game was pure gold.  The 
    inability to fight back against one's enemies, resulting in tense sessions of running and 
    hiding, balanced by the ability to fight back against one's attackers as a sort of catharsis 
    for the rest of the level ended up being a very satisfying combination.  Add to this the 
    Quantum Leap-like aspects of the earlier parts of the game where you go from time to 
    time, setting the spirits of the damned free, and the very strong and interesting story, and 
    you have a game that was a wonderful change of pace from Resident Evil and all of its 
    clones.  Although I do love Resident Evil, and especially Silent Hill…there is something 
    closer to the roots of horror about not being able to fight back, about being weaker than 
    one's enemies and still triumphing against impossible odds.  Now lets just hope that the 
    next Clock Tower (if they do one; they expected this game to sell a half-million copies in 
    North America in its first months, and it only sold a quarter-million) they keep the same 
    formula but focus on making the enemies, Spirits and Subordinates alike, more 
    frightening instead of flashy.  They have an opportunity to make some really memorable 
    horror icons here, the Michael Myers, Jason Vorhees, and Freddy Kruegers of the video 
    game world.  I would also like to see another aspect to the Boss Battles, where after 
    destroying the Subordinate you must then destroy their true form, that of the Entity that 
    was controlling them…two nasty evils for the price of one.  Here's to hoping that 
    Capcom stays at the helm and are up to the challenge of making Clock Tower even more 
    frightening next time.
    As I said, I though Clock Tower 3 was a very strong game overall that fell flat in a few 
    places but still kept my attention and interest, even after a couple of times through the 
    game.  The super nasty "Clear" mode, with its extra elements of difficulty and surprise 
    helped to give this game some good replay value.  I give the game a 7.8 out of 10 for its 
    strong performance, excellent story, and fresh ideas.  The franchise has room to grow on 
    the Playstation 2, and I look forward to seeing it do so.
    -h. Conclusion and Farewell
    Well, I guess that is about it.  I won't give you the normal non-sense about this being my 
    intellectual property and whatnot.  I did spent an awful lot of time and hard work to build 
    it from the ground up, but I understand that it is a guide to someone else's intellectual 
    property, that I was neither hired nor asked to do.  That being said, please do not try and 
    pass this off as your own work or post it on your own website without getting at least 
    telling me first.  This guide is will go first to GAMEFAQS.COM, and soon will be up at 
    my upcoming horror themed site WWW.ADARKERVISION.COM.  Keep an eye out for 
    it for more on horror games, movies, books, and more.  If you have any questions about 
    this or anything else, feel free to write to me at adarkervision@yahoo.com  and I will get 
    back to you as soon as possible.  If I get enough questions I will add a FAQ question and 
    answer section to the end of this already ridiculously long document.  Thanks for taking 
    the time to peruse it, and I hope that you found it entertaining and useful.  Be well.
