    I.	Preface
    This FAQ is about how to beat The House of Dead without any continue. This 
    game was made three years ago, however, very few people truly master this 
    game due to its high difficulty. I have been a big fan of The House of Dead 
    game since the 1se one released in U.S, after many attempts and practicing, 
    I finally able to beat the game without any continue, sometimes without even 
    being hit once. I have seen countless people keep dying in this game and 
    wasting their money to continue, that's why I decided to write this FAQ 
    before the 3rd the House of Dead comes out.
    I have met a master player CJ when I was in Asia (Cheng Jie), I saw him scored 
    above 98,800, which was the highest score I have ever seen in my life. He did 
    teach me a lot about this game, and with his tactics, finally I was able to 
    beat the game without even being hit once, with score 97,662, not as high as 
    his, but good enough to beat many records in U.S. Many parts of this FAQ was 
    from what he thought me before, it is a shame that I don't have his phone 
    number, or e-mail address. 
    Of course, there are spoilers ahead.
    II.	General Strategies
    Behind the neat graphic and tight story line, the House of Dead 2 is 
    actually a very difficult shooting game, it requires much more than accuracy 
    to complete without any continue. 
    Before you attempt to accomplish the one credit game goal, you have to learn 
    how to hold and reload the gun. First, the old-school classic way to reload-
    shoot outside the screen is not fast enough to handle some tough monsters in 
    this game, you have to learn how to reload with your left hand-when you 
    reload the gun, just use your left finger to block the gun and it will be 
    automatically reloaded. It will save you more than one second and make a BIG 
    Press trigger with your MIDDLE finger, your middle finger is much more 
    powerful and it can help you to shoot faster.
    When you try to kill monsters, shoot their heads instead of legs or arms. 
    Heads are always the weakest spot of about every kind of monsters, 
    regardless bosses. Even the strongest monster in this game, his head won't 
    have any chance against four bullets hitting constantly, however, if you try 
    to destroy their bodies, it will take you a while, and you are not going to 
    make it before they hit you.
    Always watch carefully see if there is any innocent person coming out before 
    the monsters, any miss shot will bring one life deduction to you. The best 
    way is to memorize the rescuing locations and practice how to rescue those 
    people without killing him by accidents. If you successfully rescue EVERYONE 
    on your way, you will be able to enter bonus room and get three lives before 
    you face Emperor: Type Alpha. I will have more details about how to rescue 
    people in section three.
    If you want to get the Roger ending, you have to score at least 80,000 and 
    the continue number should be zero. The keys of earning points are: 1. Kill 
    as many monsters as you can 2. Rescue as many people as you can 3. Beating 
    the game as quickly as you can 4. Get hit as less as you can 5. Shooting 
    golden frogs and coins as many as you can. How to get high score is not the 
    major purpose of this FAQ, however, if you are interested in getting Roger 
    ending, breaking my record, or even master Chen's record, if your ambition 
    is great enough (I have never been able to get more than 98,000 points, 
    97,762 was the best I could do), then please check Appendix A for more 
    detailed information.
    III. One credit game walkthrough
    Note: I am not going to spend too much time on the story line; I am not 
    going to spend time on every route, either. I will simply explain how to 
    rescue people, mention the places that most people lose lives, and tips of 
    beating bosses, which are really related to a "One credit game". And this 
    section is based on a single player game. You start with three lives, and 
    you are controlling James.
    a. The first Chapter: A Prelude
    After Judgment's stupid speech, you will see three zombies walk toward to 
    James (you), shoot them quickly and you will be okay. I don't record much 
    people losing their lives here. 
    After James walks into the church, you will see two zombies. They are still 
    weak; after you see G sitting on the floor and giving you the monster book, 
    two zombies come out, one of them is equipped with axe and I saw many newbie 
    losing one life here, the tip of beating axe zombies is to shoot their head 
    like crazy-DO NOT shoot other parts just because they use their axes to 
    block their heads, two bullets will pierce through their axes and two more 
    shots on their heads they will be dead. 
    Now you see an Axe zombie just killed a woman, it is IMPOSSIBLE to rescue 
    her so just let her die, kill that zombie and you will see another zombie is 
    chasing another woman, I suppose Zombie like to marry human instead of 
    zombies, too. Just like us. This one is easy, shoot the upper part of the 
    zombie quickly, you should be able to finish him with 4~6 bullets, of course 
    you cannot miss too many.
    NOTE: Here comes a tough one. The woman you just saved asked you to rescue 
    another guy, he is chasing by another zombie (probably a female zombie^_~)-
    don't let your guard down, you have to defeat THREE zombies here in order to 
    rescue this poor guy!!! I have seen countless people fail to rescue this 
    The zombie is between James and the guy, and his head is not shown clearly, 
    quickly shoot on the zombie's back 3~4 times-DO NOT shoot more than that, or 
    you will kill the guy after you kill the zombie.
    Two more zombies now appear. Defeat the one in the left side of screen, and 
    then defeat the one is the right side of the screen before they reach that 
    poor guy. They do not face you directly, so it is hard to exactly target 
    their heads. It is all right, shoot their upper parts and you will be able 
    to knock them down quickly. There is an extra life in the wooden boxes 
    behind that guy, if you want to get it, I suggest you rescuing the guy 
    first, then shooting the boxes with INSANELY speed, see if you could get it 
    before the guy says thank you.
    There will be one more person chased by a zombie, an object blocks the 
    zombie's head so you have to shoot the body instead, this is an easy one.
    After you defeat few zombie again, you will see worms come out with a group, 
    many people lose their lives here, the tip of killing them is to shoot like 
    crazy, you only need one shot to kill each of them, so if you truly master 
    the reloading trick, you will be fine here.
    Two green zombies will try to strike you down on the bridge, be careful 
    here. After you finish the axe zombie on the second floor (watch out his 
    throwing axe, some people lose TWO lives here), be careful, there will be a 
    kid running out of the corner before the monsters do, let him go first, then 
    finish the monsters.
    You will see two zombies with claw climbing on the two sides of the street 
    wall like the Spider Man you see in the movie. Shoot one down quickly before 
    you finish another one, and if one of them is too close to you, shoot him 
    Right before you fight the boss, you will a zombie on the bridge is trying 
    to hit a woman below with a barrel, the best way to rescue this woman is to 
    shoot the barrel first, the zombie will walk away, then you can strike him 
    down if you want. You have to finish one more zombie coming out from the 
    right, but you should not have too much trouble of getting this one. You 
    will receive one life from the woman if you save her, now you have four 
    lives with you.
    Boss: Judgment Type 28/ Karl 
    1. Axe slash: Used when Karl is alive and after Judgment commands Karl to 
    2. Body tackle. Used when Karl is dead. 
    Weak Spot: Judgment itself.
    Your goal: Defeat Judgment WITHOUT losing any life.
    Judgment's agility is very annoying, it is very hard to track down his 
    flying pattern and shoot him. However, he will stop right above Karl when 
    Karl is close to you and ready to use his giant axe to hit James. This is a 
    good chance to attack, when you hear Judgment shouts out "Go! Karl", aim him 
    and shoot him. However, if you follow this old school way to fight Judgment, 
    you will give Karl too many chances to attack, and even a master player 
    misses target sometimes.
    Although Karl is not actually the weak spot of Judgment, shooting Karl will 
    still damage Judgment a bit each shot, so you can reduce Judgment vitality 
    fast by shooting Karl like crazy, Karl is stupid and slow, you should have 
    no trouble of hitting him. Remember you still need to hit Judgment right 
    before Karl attacks, but if you follow this strategy, you will only give 
    Karl one or two chances to attack.
    Master Cheng has told me this following tactics and I doubt who could find 
    out besides him: Actually, Judgment's flying pattern CAN be tracked, there 
    are two steel sighs on the left and the right side of the screen, if you 
    shoot the right side one constantly, you will find that you will hit 
    Judgment quite often, too. With bit luck, you can smash Karl down before he 
    could even have a chance to get close to you.
    After Karl is defeated, here comes the tough part: Judgment starts to tackle 
    you, you have to hit him before he reaches you, and you need three shots to 
    kill him.
    Here is how you kill Judgment:
    1. If you see him flying left and right, wait 'till him get close to you and 
    shoot the left side of his flying pattern
    2. If you see him flying upside and down, wait 'till him get close to you 
    and shoot the down side of his flying pattern.
    3. If you see him flying to the far left side of the screen, wait 'till 
    him flying to the far right side of the screen, he will stop there for a 
    second and you can target him there.
    4. If you see him flying to the far right side of the screen, wait 'till him 
    flying to the far left side of the screen, he will stop there for a second 
    and you can target him there.
    After you kill him, you will receive one life if you save everyone in 
    chapter one, now you have full lives (five lives).
    b. The second chapter: Muddy
    You will see a car with a zombie blocking the front window, shoot the window 
    quickly, you don't have to aim the zombie because one or two shot he will be 
    dead, and you save the person. You MUST save this one or the second chapter 
    could be as difficult as the fifth chapter. 
    After you defeat several zombies, few axe zombies will attack you when you 
    are trying to climb stairs, shoot them from left to the right.
    When you see a zombie jump off from the second floor, shoot him like crazy 
    and you will be able to kill him before he can even reaches the floor.
    You will now see two zombies is trying to break the door and get the guy 
    inside, shoot them down and you just save the second person in this chapter, 
    it is impossible to miss this one because that person is protected by the 
    door and all you have to do is to shoot the zombies down.
    Beware of the flying axe above your ahead. You will be attacked by a bat 
    when you are passing through a tunnel, many people lose a life or two here, 
    but actually it is easy to pass this part, just fire quickly to cover 
    yourself, you will hit him right before he bites you.
    Now you are facing two sword zombies-I have seen A LOT of people get killed 
    right here. The problem is their flying axes, the neat graphic makes you can 
    barely see the flying axes. You have to watch very carefully in order to see 
    the axes. Concentrate on one of them first, then get another one. Shoot the 
    one is too close to you so you can push him back (if you can clearly see the 
    swords in their hands, they are too close to you.)
    After you finish them, you will see a door and a key on the floor, SHOOT THE 
    KEY AND PICK IT UP!!! Or you will not be able to face Hyprophant on the 
    Sunset Bridge, you will fight him on a wooden bridge instead, it will be 
    much harder.
    You will see a child chased by a fat zombie-many people failed to rescue 
    this child. I must admit, it is very hard to get this one, but not 
    impossible. Target the door carefully and shoot the zombie's head right 
    after he comes out the house, if you are fast enough, you will be able to 
    finish him in two shots. Of course if you failed, don't give up!!! Target 
    the zombie carefully, move your gun from left to right SLOWLY and shoot him 
    like crazy. If you cannot save this poor child, you are still going to face 
    me ^_^ (Hyprophant) on the wooden bridge.
    After you save the child, he will ask James to save his father, after you 
    kill several weak zombies, you will see a locked door in front of you, shoot 
    the lock ONCE to unlock the door, then here comes out the child's dad chased 
    be a weak zombie, finish the zombie with two shots.
    After you finish the enemies in the room, you will see three boxes on the 
    street, the bottom one contains a life box, DO NOT use it if you have full 
    life now, save if for later.
    Here, An old man is chased by a weak zombie and a fat zombie is rushing 
    toward to you, rescue the old man first and shoot fat zombie's head to kill 
    him quickly. If you lose a life here, don't worry, remember that life box? 
    You can get it later.
    You will see three zombies riding a boat, shoot them before they land and 
    you should have no problem here.
    You will see a young guy chased by an axe zombie, and the zombie is BEHIND 
    the guy, so how do you save him? The answer is shoot the zombie right after 
    he raises his axe and ready to attack, you can target the zombie's head and 
    you will be able to kill him in two shots.
    You think you saved him? Yes you did, but you are going to be attacked by a 
    chain saw Zombie, his chain saw sometimes blocks his head, you will need 
    around 4~6 shots in order to take him down, so you'd better be quick. This 
    Zombie won't attack the guy, and you will receive a life from this guy if 
    you rescue him.
    Watch out the flying axes from the second floor, and three killer fish when 
    you are crossing the water. After you defeat few more weak zombies, two fat 
    zombies will rush toward to you-so many people lose one life here. The tips 
    of beating them is to shoot the left one first, shoot hid head quickly and 
    save your time for the second one. You will have to fight four other zombies 
    after this part, but they are weak compare to these two fat Zombies.
    Boss: Hyprophant Type B 05
    Weak Spot: Heart, protected by gills.
    Trident stab: Used when Hyprophant's vitality is more than half.
    Killer Fish attack: Used when Hyprophant's Vitality is dropped below half.
    Jumping attack: Used when Hyprophant's Vitality is dropped below 1/4, or James 
    has survived three waves of Killer Fish attack.
    Your goal: Defeat Hyprophant with no more than one life losing.
    Hehehe that's me ^_~. Actually, his name is Hierophant, but I don't know why 
    in Japan and most of Asian countries, his/her name is Hyprophant, well, it 
    does not matter, I am invincible, and your life ends here!!!
    I was kidding; Defeating Hyprophant is not really that hard. Hyprophant only 
    uses his regular Trident stab at the beginning of the battle; you will have 
    to hit Hyprophant's heart constantly before he reaches you. 
    Although Hyprophant walks like a drunkard and it seems like impossible to 
    catch his walking pattern, if you look at Hyprophant's heart closely
    , his heart only moves left and right like Judgment, with speed much lower, 
    so you should not have any trouble to hit Hyprophant's heart if you are 
    being cautious. Once you hit Hyprophant's heart, he/she will cover his/her 
    heart with two pieces of gills. Don't seize the fire, shoot Hyprophant's 
    heart like crazy!!! You just have to keep fire Hyprophant's heart, no matter 
    it is protected or not, because you will be able to hit Hyprophant's heart 
    as soon as the gills are opened this way. After you bring Hyprophant's 
    vitality down to 50%, Hyprophant will jump into the water.
    He will now use killer fish attack, but don't be bothered by those fish, 
    keep shooting Hyprophant's heart, each time you hit the heart, Hyprophant 
    will struggle and stop calling fish, only shoot fish when they are really 
    close to you. It only takes you one bullet per fish, so they really cannot 
    process much threat to you. After you hurt him/her three times, Hyprophant 
    will back on the bridge again.
    Note: If you are not confident about your skill, then concentrate on 
    defending killer fish is a good idea, too. Hyprophant will stop Killer fish 
    attack if you can survive three waves of attacks. Do not lose life here.
    Now Hyprophant has only 1/4 of vitality left (if you do shoot him/her three 
    times during his/her 2nd phase attack), he will now use his/her jump attack. 
    I have seen many people having trouble in this part, especially a single 
    player game. The best strategy is: Don't let Hyprophant has chance to jump. 
    Before Hyprophant jumps, he/she always inhales first and his/her gills are 
    opened, shoot Hyprophant's heart like crazy and if you hit the target 
    successfully, he will stop jumping. Use this tactic to prevent Hyprophant's 
    first two jumps. The final jump is unavoidable; you have to get one with 
    your skill. Watch carefully, Hyprophant's speed reaches Zero when he/she is 
    at the peak, and his/her heart will open, shoot Hyprophant 's heart when 
    he/she is at the highest point to finish this battle. If you get hit once 
    here, finish Hyprophant when he/she is still close to you (his/her heart 
    will just cover about the entire screen...I don't see how could you miss it).
    You will receive one life if you save more than five persons in the chapter, 
    and according to the walkthrough, you could save six people. Now you still 
    have full lives.
    c. The third chapter: Darkness
    James and all the folks are riding a boat now. You will face four green 
    zombies at the beginning, of course your friends on the boat won't help you, 
    you have to deal them yourself.
    Many people lose their lives here, and I have seen many people lost more 
    than two lives here, what a shame. The best way to defeat them safely is to 
    shoot them while they are still in the water. You will finish two of them 
    this way. About another two, shoot their head when they are trying to climb 
    the boat and bite you. Sometimes they jump high and use arm attacks, 
    consider you are unlucky if this happens. You have to move your gun and 
    track down their heads before they hit you.
    When your boat go through underneath a bridge, you will see a zombie right 
    above your head, shoot him four times VERY QUICKLY or his will get you here.
    When you see two bats, don't try to aim them when they are afar, wait 'till 
    them get close to you, then fire somewhere close to the middle of the 
    screen. Easy and simple.
    You will then see a guy in the water, two green zombies behind him. The 
    camera allows you hit two zombies easily, give each of them one shot and 
    they will be dead. It is amazing to see such weak monsters in the third 
    You will see another boat, an old guy is on it and he is attacked by a green 
    zombie, I have seen countless people shot and kill the poor old man by 
    accident, and you MUST save him, or you will be forced to fight Tower and 
    Strength in different locations, which will make things much harder.
    Don't shoot him until the boat is getting close to your boat and the monster 
    is trying to attack the old man, shoot the zombie right after he opens his 
    arms, one or two shot will finish him easily. 
    Amy now screams " James, over there!" and here comes a regular zombie and an 
    axe zombie. Finish the axe zombie first and don't let him get any close to 
    you, because due to the stupid camera, his head won't be in the screen and 
    you cannot hit it.
    Amy screams "James, over there!" again, and she won't help you, of course. 
    Even she gets a gun in her hand, I always wonder if that's just a 
    decoration. Four zombies are running toward to you and one of them is the 
    fat zombie. It is VERY HARD to keep your lives here, because you are 
    outnumbered and the enemies are too close to you. In order to survive, hit 
    the fat one's head with three bullets and see if you could knock him down, 
    if you can, quickly finish the axe one, then the other two.
    There is a life in the box in the right side of screen after the four 
    zombies part, don't miss it. Especially if you just lost one life.
    This annoying ***** Amy screams again "James, over there!" Okay, now what's 
    the big idea this time? Ah, there is a woman far away and she is about to be 
    killed by a zombie. This one is very hard to save. Even I can't say I could 
    save her every time. The key is lying on your quick finger and reloading 
    speed. You will need around 6~8 bullets in one second to finish the zombie 
    in order to save the woman.
    Now here comes lots of bats...with quick fire trick you will be fine here. 
    After you finish few more week zombies, you will see a guy chased by two 
    skinny zombies. They are very weak and slow, I have barely seen people who 
    couldn't save him, so I won't mention anything here.
    Boss: Tower Type 8000
    Weak spots: Main head/slaves heads
    Slave heads attack: used in his first form
    Energy charge: Used when all the slave heads are destroyed.
    Your goal: Lose no more than one life in the first phase, and lost no life 
    in the second phase.
    This boss has five heads. He could be the easiest boss in the entire game, 
    however, if you let your guard down, his slave heads could kill you easily.
    All you have to do is to hit the slave heads. Each time you hear them 
    inhale, it means one of the slave head are ready to attack. Shoot it before 
    it hit you. Sometimes there will be two slave heads charge at about the same 
    time, don't get nervous, watch carefully and shoot the one actually moves 
    first, then take care of another one. 
    The one at far right is the main problem, because of the camera, it is hard 
    to hit this one when it is trying to attack you. Every time none of the 
    slave head is attacking, shoot the far right one. Remember: YOU DON'T HAVE 
    people think you can only damage them when they are charging you that is 
    deadly wrong. Finish that troublemaker and the rest is a piece of cake.
    After you destroy all the slave heads, Tower will run away with the main 
    head, of course you have to get him. The only thing you need to know is to 
    shoot him when he is charging far away, don't wait for him to attack you. 
    You will not lose any life here, his second phase is just too easy. 
    You will receive one life if you save at least three people in this chapter, 
    you can save four for the maximum.
    The Fourth Chapter: Despair
    The biggest good for nothing Amy just called you, sounds like they are in 
    trouble. You are now on your way to save them.
    You will be attacked by three skinny zombies, shoot them quickly and you 
    will be fine. Next are a masked zombie and a knife zombie, block the 
    throwing knife with you bullets, finish the masked zombie first with 4~5 
    bullets on his head, then finish another one.
    Then you will see a person seized by a zombie, it is almost impossible to 
    shoot the zombie's head, that's why many people fail to rescue this guy, 
    actually, you only need to shoot the zombie's leg ONCE and you will kill him 
    and save that poor guy. You will receive one life if you rescue the young 
    guy successfully.
    Don't let your guard down, you will have to save another person in few 
    seconds, and you MUST save this one, or you will fight Strength in s 
    different location and it will be much more difficult. Shoot the zombie's 
    head three times quickly before he pulls the person into the tunnel; be 
    careful not to shoot the innocent. If you kill him, you have to go in the 
    tunnel as well.
    Finish two lizards then you will see another Lizard with a Giant sword 
    zombie, finish the Giant sword zombie first. He is very slow and you should 
    not have any problem here.
    After you enter the door, two masked zombie are waiting for you there. You 
    have to finish the first one within 4 shots or less, so you will have time 
    to finish another one. You may lose one life here easily, so don't blame 
    yourself if you do get hurt.
    You will now see two Giant sword zombies and a skinny zombie chases an 
    innocent, SAVE THE INNOCENT first or you won't have any chance. Two shots 
    will be able to kill the skinny zombie, reload your gun and shoot one of the 
    Giant zombies quickly, use five shots here and use the last one on the 
    second Giant sword zombie, reload your gun again and shoot him quickly, you 
    will be able to kill him just before his sword is about to hit you.
    Beware of the following three zombies, block their throwing knives first 
    then shoot them. They are very slow, so you should not have any trouble 
    Boss: Strength Type 205
    Weak spot: Head
    Chain saw attack: Used when he is very close to you.
    Throwing axe: used only twice.
    Your goal: Lose less than two lives in this battle
    You will fight Strength in the coliseum, this battle is truly amazing, 
    exciting and difficult. Because of the camera, Strength's chain saw 
    sometimes blocks his bead and make him invincible, and Strength runs fast, 
    the sound of chain saw also makes many players nervous.
    This battle is divided into many sections; in each section, you have to 
    damage Strength at least three times, then Strength will hide and show up 
    somewhere again. The best tip to beat him is not to let him get close to 
    you. When he is far away from you, his chain saw will not block his head, go 
    ahead and shoot it like crazy. Strength does walk in a strange way, but his 
    head does not move that much, don't let the body bother you.
    If you let Strength get close to you, don't worry, calm down. When he raises 
    his chain saw and tries to hit you, he is defenseless and it is your best 
    chance to attack, shoot him right on time and push him back.
    His throwing axe attack is very easy to block, I won't waste my time here. 
    In one section, you will see Strength on the top and he will jump off and 
    attack you with his chain saw, almost everyone loses one life here, the tip 
    to pass this part safely is to focus your fire a bit below his head when 
    Strength is about to jump. When he jumps off, you will hit his bead most of 
    time, IF NOT, move your gun down quickly and see if you are fast enough to 
    hit strength before he hits you.
    You will receive one life if you save all three people in this chapter. And 
    you should have four or more lives.
    The fifth chapter: Dawn
    Harry told you to use his car and whoop Goldman's ass. Before you reach the 
    parking space you will see two solider zombies first, their defense are 
    insanely high, so shooting their heads is the only option if you are not 
    willing to lose one life here. 
    Here come two gray zombies, if you shoot their bodies, they will struggle 
    and release the...earthworms (Okay, I will call them earthworms here.) to bite 
    You can kill them within two shots if you shoot their heads, DO NOT do that, 
    shoot their bodies instead. When they are struggling, you can get the life 
    box inside the barrels behind them. Shoot down the earthworms before they 
    bite you.
    You get Harry's car, but before you start the car, you will see three 
    zombies first, block the throwing knife first, kill two solider zombies 
    first, and then finish the last one.
    Boss: Judgment Type 28/Karl (Rematch)
    Your goal: Not to lose any life here.
    This shameless loser asked Goldman to give him another chance, but he does 
    not know how to improve himself, so just use the same strategies you used to 
    beat him. The only difference is that there is not steel sighs here, so you 
    just have to shoo Karl like crazy instead, and shoot Judgment when you heard 
    "GO! KARL!"
    After you farewell this loser, you will see another car with one zombie 
    stand in the front of the car. Due to the stupid camera, you CAN NOT see his 
    head, you have to shoot at least 8 times on his body before he kicks you, 
    however, it is not the worst, the worst is the following TWO solider zombies 
    in such a close range!!! It is almost impossible to lose no life here unless 
    you can shoot very quickly, you will need five bullets to destroy each, 
    finish the left one within LESS than 2 seconds so you could have more time 
    to deal with the second one. Don't blame yourself if you lose one life here. 
    I got hurt here quite often.
    Two silver zombies now jump in the front of your car, you don't have to 
    destroy them, if you shoot them constantly, they will miss the target, 
    Finish the left one first then shoot the right one, DO NOT CHANGE THE 
    ORDER!!! You will be able to kill the left one and the right one will slash 
    and miss you.
    Boss: Hyprophant Type B 05 (Rematch)
    Your goal: Not to lose any life here.
    Sad, sad... Hyprophant is back with MUCH LESS defense, he/she even forgot how 
    to do killer fish attack. If you can fire fast enough and aim his/her heart 
    well. You can trap Hyprophant in the middle of the screen and he/she won't 
    even have a chance to move. Other than that, use the same strategies you 
    used to defeat Hyprophant again.
    You will now see four zombies far away, they are ALL very strong, so don't 
    wait 'till your car is close to them, shoot them from afar!!! You will deal 
    enough damage before you reach them and they will be a bunch of pushovers.
    Two silver zombies jump in the front of your car again, this time you should 
    shoot the right one first, then the left one, DO NOT CHANGE THE ORDER.
    Before you reach Goldman's headquarter, two gray zombies and two solider 
    zombies are on your way-many people lost TWO lives here. The strategy to 
    defeat them is to kill the solider zombie in the left side first, then shoot 
    two gray zombies-DO NOT SHOOT THEIR HEADS!!! Shoot their bodies instead, 
    they will struggle in front of you and prevent the deadly solider zombie 
    attacking you. Finish him first, then take care of the earthworms.
    Boss: Magician Type 0
    Weak spots: The red parts are not covered by his armor, they are located on 
    Magician's right arm, left leg and right leg.
    Single beam shoot-used when his vitality is above 50%.
    Double beam shoot-used when his vitality is above 50%
    Rush attack-used every time you deal enough damage during his beam shoots 
    Divine wave-used when his vitality is below 50%.
    Your goal: After you defeat him, you must have three lives or more.
    Guess who's back? Back again? Magician is back... tell your friends!!! The 
    mighty Magician Typo 0 defeated by G and Harry, now is back to seek the 
    Magician has very high speed, and his beam attack is faster than any kind of 
    bullet, in order to defeat him, you have to master the reloading trick and 
    learn how to shoot fast first.
    Magician uses single beam attack during his first two turns, you only need 
    4~6 shots to block it, shoot Magician's weak points when he is charging his 
    Magician uses double beam attack in his third turns, if you don't deal 
    enough damage in his first two turns, this attack is deadly, you will have 
    to shoot both beam 4 times before one of them reaches you, but it does not 
    matter if you stun Magician right here. Magician needs a longer time to 
    charge before he could fire this attack, so shoot his with all you got, even 
    if he has fired, DO NOT bother with blocking his attack, SHOOT him!! If you 
    deal enough damage on him, he will be stunned for a second and his light 
    beams will stop.
    Magician will now use his rush attack, I have seen two guys lost 13 lives 
    here...Before Magician rushes toward to you, he always dash left and right 
    three times and tries to confuse you, watch his move carefully, after his 
    third dash, he will stop for a very short amount of time then rush toward to 
    you, aim his RIGHT LEG (your left side) and shoot it like crazy when he is 
    stopped, you will be able to hit him before he could even have a chance to 
    attack, don't let him have any chance to charge you.
    Magician uses two rounds beams attack and two rounds of charge attack, 
    follow the tips above and beat his crap out of him. After you wipe out 50% 
    of his vitality, he will fly sky high and be ready to use his divine wave 
    Divine wave attack are actually 6 light beams, and you will need 12 bullets 
    total to complete block them. However, Magician needs a long time to gather 
    his energy before he fire his Divine wave, so shoot his right leg (due to 
    the camera angel problem, you are not able to aim his left leg, and you can 
    barely see his left arm) when he is gathering his energy, if you are quick 
    and your accuracy is VERY high, you can kill Magician before he attacks. 
    The final chapter: The Original Sin
    Note: EVERY monster is this chapter is VERY strong, you have to ALWAYS shoot 
    their heads in order to survive. You almost deal NO damage on them if you 
    shoot their bodies or legs.
    Three silver zombies guard the front door, they are pretty slow, and you 
    should not have any problem here.
    Three Boomerang monsters are guarding the first floor, they are not really 
    that tough, but beware of their boomerang attack, defense yourself when it 
    is necessary.
    Before you enter the elevator, two silver zombie will come out, since they 
    appear a bit far away from you, you will have enough time to shoot them down 
    before they can hit you.
    After you reach the 50th floor, two silver zombies with chain saw are waiting 
    for you!!! They are very close to you and they are insanely tough to shoot 
    down. Your quick finger is the key to pass this part, finish the one in the 
    left first, then finish another one.
    You will see two boomerang zombies again, but they are like Spider Man, one 
    of them is climbing on the wall and one is climbing on the cell. Shoot the 
    one on the cell first, with two or three shots you can shoot him down to the 
    floor, it will be much easier to fight him on the floor.
    After you kill several zombies, you will enter a dark room-For God's sake, 
    KEEP FIRING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE screen and DO NOT stop, even if there is no 
    one there!!! In this room, Every time you turn around, you see a zombie with 
    VERY CLOSE range, if you start firing after you see the monsters, it will be 
    too late. There is a life in a green box in the left corner of the screen 
    somewhere, don't miss it.
    Boss: Tower Type 8000 
    Your Goal: Not to lose any life here.
    Now Tower's main head will join the force of his slave heads and attack with 
    them. This is the only new thing you need to know. Besides that, follow the 
    same strategies you used to defeat Tower before and you will be fine here.
    After you come out the room and defeat some week silver zombies, you will 
    face three Boomerang zombies again, it appears to me that the one in the 
    left is relatively weak, so kill him first, then finish the other two.
    You will see two Silver zombies with chain saws come out from both sides of 
    doors. Shoot the one in the left first. They are not as tough as the ones 
    you fight right after you come out the elevator.
    If you SAVE EVERYONE in your game, then you will turn right and enter the 
    bonus room, there are THREE LIVES and some treasures there. If not, then you 
    will go straight.
    After you climb upstairs, open a huge door-Goldman is right in front of 
    Boss: Emperor Type Alpha
    Weak Spot: The red energy core.
    Energy sword slash: used when he has more than 2/3 of his vitality.
    Energy ball shots: Shoot four energy balls constantly, used when he has more 
    than 2/3 of his vitality.
    Mega shot: Shoot four energy balls together, used when he has more than 2/3 
    of his vitality.
    Judgment Transformation: All the energy balls transform to Judgment. Used 
    when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3
    Hyprophant Transformation: All energy balls transform to Hyprophant. Used 
    when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3
    Tower Transformation: All energy balls transform to Tower's main head. Used 
    when Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3
    Strength Transformation: All energy balls transform to Strength. Used when 
    Emperor's vitality is between 1/3 and 2/3
    Dooms Day: Emperor is vanished and only his red core is shown. All the 
    energy balls moves around and protect Emperor's core. Emperor will move 
    toward to James slowly and tackle James. Used when Emperor's vitality is 
    below 1/3.
    Your goal: Defeat him and survive with all you got. A veteran player could 
    finish Emperor with zero to two lives losing.
    Goldman has made a stupid theory that claims the current nature system has 
    made human commit the original sin, and he just made a new ruler of the 
    earth-The Emperor, to rule the world and terminate all the human beings. 
    Well, it is funny that the ruler of the world can't even defeat a mere agent 
    with leather shoes and tuxedo, what a shame.
    After battle starts, try to defend yourself as much as you can, shoot 
    Emperor's energy balls down before they can hit you. If you see emperor is 
    about to use sword wave, shoot the middle of the screen, his core will hit 
    your bullet before he can reach you. However, if you DO let him reach you, 
    don't worry, you can still hit his core when he is raising his energy sword, 
    that's his weakest moment, just like Strength.
    Try to bring his vitality down to as close to 2/3 as you can, DO NOT GO 
    BELOW!!! He will use his second phase attack if his vitality is below 2/3, 
    his transformation attacks are crazy, and his defense will be insanely high 
    as well.
    Wait 'till Emperor uses mega shot. When he fires four energy balls, he will 
    stand there still 'till the balls reach you. Do not bother with shooting the 
    balls down, aim Emperor's core now and shoot it like crazy!!! You can bring 
    his vitality below 1/2 this way, and I assume it is possible to avoid his 
    second phase attack if you are quick enough. In most of my games, Emperor 
    could only attack around 6~7 times during his second phase attack. You can 
    shoot the balls down when they are VERY close to you, and if you are hit 
    here, let it go, it worth using a life here.
    During the second phase, Emperor's heart is not shown, you can damage 
    Emperor VERY LITTLE each time you block Emperor's transformation attack 
    Consider you are lucky if Emperor abuses Judgment and Hyprophant attack, 
    because those two are the easiest ones to block, just use the tips you used 
    to defeat Judgment and Hyprophant you will be fine. You have to watch 
    carefully when Emperor is doing Judgment transformation attack, because it 
    will be MUCH closer than the battle you fought the real Judgment, and you 
    will have less time to react.
    Tip from Master Chen: When Emperor is using Hyprophant transformation 
    attack, his heart will show up RIGHT AFTER Hyprophant Jumps up, you can 
    shoot his core for more extra damage at this point.
    When Emperor uses Tower Transformation attack, shoot the head VERY QUICKLY 
    and hope the quick fire could block the head before it can even move.
    When Emperor uses Strength Transformation attack, shoot the head right 
    before if raises its chain saw. The head is MUCH SMALLER than the real 
    Strength's head, so skill is much required.
    After you bring Emperor's Hp below 1/3, Emperor starts to use the Dooms Day 
    attack, actually it is very easy to block because Emperor moves very slow, 
    although his energy balls are protecting his, if you aim it well and fire 
    SLOWLY, you can shoot Emperor down before he can reach you-don't be too fast 
    here, the faster you shoot, the less accuracy you have. Emperor's defense is 
    not very high during his final form.
    IV. Frequently asked questions:
    Q: Is it possible to get a six digits score?
    A: From what I have heard, yes, it is possible. I don't know how, though. 
    But one thing I can sure about is that the "perfect path" (means you saved 
    everyone) is NOT going to bring you the best score. Just because you get 
    into the bonus room does not ensure the highest score. You have to find a 
    path that you could actually save more people and kill more monsters. 
    Q: How can I get the Roger ending?
    A: Score higher than 80,000, and beat the game without any continue. 
    Actually, consider you are weak if you beat the one credit game and cannot 
    get more than 80,000 points.
    Q: What will happen if you DON'T SAVE anyone in the game???
    A: I have tried this before, nothing special happened. 
    Q: Where did they get those bosses names?
    A: All bosses in The House of Dead games are named with characters on Tarot
