This mode is a more difficult version of the game with enemies
have more powerful weapons and your character's panic goes to
full when surprised.
Hint: Avoiding Corroder:
When going back into the house with the toolbox key
to get the wrench, enter into the living room through the double
doors. If you go around the corner to go up the stairs, Corroder
will be waiting there to surprise you. This almost maxes out your
panic bar. Go through the double doors and go for the ladder in
the fireplace that you opened with the Moonflower upstairs. Corroder
will break into the room just behind you, but you will have plenty
of time to make it and he cannot come up the ladder. He instead
must back track through the house, giving you plenty of time to
get the key before he busts in on you. Climb down the ladder and
go to the evade point fire extinguisher. Use it, sneak out of
the room, and be on your way.
Hint: Defeating the last Boss:
Make sure you have the arrows that you picked up throughout
the game. When the fight starts, shoot a special arrow at the
Boss. It should automatically target him. Then, run around away
from him. If he shoots a purple orb at you and you are caught,
you can miss his other attacks. If he shoots another orb at you
and you are still caught by the first orb, try to run in some
direction and Alyssa will struggle and fall to the ground. The
orb should fly over her head and miss. If you are still caught
by the one or two orbs, keep trying to run free until they go
away. If you get caught by three orbs, the Boss will say "This
is the end", Alyssa dies, and the game will end. Once free
from the orbs, keep running away from the Boss and shoot a regular
arrow. When the Boss stops and laughs, shoot an arrow at him.
This should give you enough time to charge a regular arrow and
shoot him. If the Boss picks you up or grabs you, keep pressing
X to get out of his reach. His grab will drain your heath
and add more heath to him. If he tries to use his sword, quickly
move. If you get hit, get up and run somewhere far from him. If
you get to the point where when you charge an arrow, but it is
not fully charged when he walks towards you, just shoot the arrow.
This will pull him back, and he will not be able to go anywhere.
Keep repeating this process and until an intermission sequence
begins. When you reach the second part of the Boss battle, he
will have a new move called "No Escape". This will bring
a blob of blood that will hold Alyssa in that spot if caught.
To avoid this, when you hear "There's no escape", quickly
move from where you are standing. Then, keep repeating the previously
described strategy until you get to the third part, where he is
a lot more difficult. The Boss is quicker and now says "Are
you ready to give up?". When he says this, if you have any
more special arrows shoot them at him. If notm, charge up the
arrow and shoot when he starts moving. When you finally get to
the last intermission sequence, it will end with both you and
the Boss at low health. Stay away from the Boss. Go back to the
place where you started, and in the right corner is the end of
Start to charge an arrow immediately after "Judgment"
disappears. You will be on the opposite side of the altar from
Lord B. Charge your arrow as he charges his attack. He will make
a noise that sounds like a laugh just before he releases. Launch
your arrow and press Duck. The ball will fly harmlessly
over your head. Stand as soon as it is past you and repeat the
pattern. If timed correctly, he will keep getting knocked back
away from you, and you can knock off between one third to one
half of his first health bar before he is able to make his way
around the altar toward you. At any time during the battle if
you duck, his ball attack will go over your head. When he uses
the "no escape" attack, only run about three to five
steps. Start moving as soon as he says it, then stop and charge
an arrow at him. He will stand frozen and pointing until the attack
executes, then starts walking again. This gives you plenty of
time to charge an arrow. If you get off a binding shot, keep moving
about 45 degrees and charge another; but keep ducking. You will
not have time to pin him enough for a final attack. When he gets
into this second health bar, if you bind him he will be able to
shake off the binding shot by vibrating and raising in the air.
This is good for you when he does this. Watch for it then start
to charge an arrow when he starts to break it. Hold the arrow
until he breaks the bind and touches the ground again. By this
time your arrow will be fully charged and he is a sitting duck.
If you are lucky, he will keep trying to break the binding instead
of attack. If he attacks, just keep using the duck strategy.
Hint: Timing the charge for an arrow:
If you do not know when to fire the arrow, count ten
seconds, then fire. You can also count seven seconds and fire,
but it will not be as strong.
Hint: Get out of panic mode:
To get out of panic mode either use Lavender Water;
or while you are running and Alyssa stops, keep pressing X.
She will be able to move again.
Hint: Get rid of the moth:
Although moths may appear as if they are your friends,
they are not. If they get near you, either use your Holy Water
or keep pressing X and Alyssa will say "Get off".
Hint: Locations to hide from Bosses:
It can be difficult to find a place to hide or something
to use to attack a Boss. The following are locations and items
that you can use. Note: If you are trying to complete the game
on a time record do not follow any of these tips.
When you first meet him, run through the closest door (which
leads to the main room in the clothing store). Run behind the
curtain and stay there until you either hear or see him leave,
or if he finds you. If that happens, run back up the stairs and
into the room where you first met him. Then go through the door
again and hide in the curtain once again.
When in the music hall, go behind the stage curtain. He cannot
and will not follow you back there. Though this may kill your
time, it is a simple way to avoid him. Another place to hide in
the music hall is in the locker on the second floor. He may sometimes
find you, depending on whether Alyssa is in panic mode or if he
is close to you.
When in the music prop room (where you get the matches), once
you leave the room Slugehammer Man appears. Quickly run back into
the music room and use the violin case. A short intermission sequence
When you first meet him, use the Holy Water. This will set
him on fire for a few seconds and give you enough time to run.
Run down the steps (where the lion fountain is located) and run
past the door. There should be a small outhouse. Run in there
until the music stops.
If you enter the house and he appears, run up stairs. He will
follow you. Go into the room and under the bed (if you have not
found it already). There should be a secret ladder leading to
somewhat of an entertainment room. When down there. Acid Man will
appear. When he does, look for a fire extinguisher and use it
against him. This will cause the room to become filled with white
smoke and he will not be able to see. Use this chance to get out
of the room.
If you are on the other side of the big fans outside when he appears,
go through the only door there. Go down the stairs and into the
first door. Go all the way into the back. Alyssa will see an electric
box when he comes in, and is close enough use it against him.
This is another chance for you to escape. After he has fries,
he should come out again. If he does, run past the door (where
the electric box was located) and past the ghost (whose spirit
you must set free). You will reach somewhat of a dead end. Stand
there for a few seconds, and the music should stop, indicating
that he left. If Acid Man follows you down there, use the Holy
Water on him and run back and out the door to where the giant
fans are located. Stay there until he follows you. When he does,
run around the junkyard and back in the door. Go back to where
that dead end is located. Another way if he follows you again
is to walk towards the wall, and on that small walkway Alyssa
will walk against the wall and he will be gone. Beware -- when
you do the bridge part he will appear again and say "I found
It is recommended that you carry as many Holy Waters as possible,
and refill every time you get to one Holy Water remaining. When
he first appears, use the Holy Water and run for the door on Alyssa's
right. You should be in a office room that has two fish tanks.
Run behind the fish tank that is closes to the television screen.
You will see Chopper Man enter and repeat his "Oh nice trick"
phrase. When you either see or hear him vanish, the coast is clear.
When he appears on the B2 floor, does run down the stairs and
go all the way to Alyssa's left. There should be some barrels
and fire there. Hide in there and a short intermission sequence
If he appears at random in the factory, do not bother hiding in
the elevator. It will not do anything, as he will still be outside
the elevator waiting and you will be trapped. If you need to enter
the elevator and go to either B1, B2, or B3 (whichever floor you
are on) and ride the elevator up or down, then go back to the
floor you were on. When doing this, he will appear on that same
floor again. This will get you just enough time to do what you
need to do. If Alyssa is in panic mode, you will not be able to
use the elevator. It is best if you use the Lavender Water to
lower her panic or try to make a run for it.
When you enter the grave yard after the intermission sequence,
run towards Alyssa's right. There should be a house. Once inside,
go around and pass the beds. Hide behind the curtain until he
Scissor Man and Scissor Woman
When on Scissor man's side of the mirror (which is almost
the same as Scissor woman's side), on the first floor is the men's
bathroom run inside one of the stalls and lay low until he is
gone. Note :If you are playing a clear mode game, be careful;
when you are surprised your panic meter goes to full. If he does
surprise you, he will do somewhat of a dance. Put some Holy Water
on him and make a run for it. The best place to go is through
the other side of the mirror.
When on the other side, you will now be chased by Scissor Woman.
Her side is almost the same, except everything is changed around.
The bathroom that was on the first floor is now on the second
floor. If you go to the second floor room where you find the empty
chair (in Scissor man's side there is a dead body there, and this
is where you use the form). All the way on the top corner (towards
the television screen) is a hole where you can get through. This
really is not that much help, as the music will stop for a few
seconds and then restart.
When you make it through the second part of Scissor Man and Scissor
Woman's stage, an intermission sequence will play. After it ends,
Scissor Man appears. Run into the clock tower. If you go to the
door on the left, it is Scissor Man's side. The right door is
Scissor Woman's side. On Scissor man's side, run up the stairs.
You should be able to go to the edge and hang off. This will trigger
an intermission sequence. Since there is nothing really on Scissor
Man's side and nowhere to run or hide, do not bother going there
When on Scissor Woman's side, go up the stairs. Go towards the
sky and slide against the wall. When you reach the end and are
in the kitchen, after putting out the fireplace, Scissor Woman
will appear. Go to Alyssa's left. There should be some ashes.
Use them against Scissor Woman.
When you are in the Library part of the clock tower, Scissor Woman
will appear. Go outside and towards the sky again. Move Alyssa
towards the right. This will bring you back to the Library. Scissor
Woman cannot harm you in anyway. When you get to the intermission
sequence where you see Dennis and what Scissor Man and Scissor
Woman are doing to him, you will never be chased by either one
of them again.
