Two different worlds: One is a nightmarish hell, a rusted industrial wasteland which many would
consider to be Hell itself; and the other - an abandoned town, possessing physically altered durability. Blocked-off streets.

Key to Endings
Bad Ending: You don't save
Cybil or Kaufmann. The first time you finish the game you get the Rock Drill, Chainsaw, and Gascan no matter what ending you
Bad+ Ending: You save Cybil, but leave Kaufmann to die.
Good Ending: You save Kaufmann,
but kill Cybil.
Good+ Ending: You save Kaufmann and Cybil. This gives you the Channeling Stone
Ending: If you use the Channeling Stone in five selected areas, you get this secret ending. This gives you the Hyper Blaster.
The Secret Weapons
Chainsaw: This is one of
the best (and coolest) weapons in the game. Powerful, messy, and fun. Obtained by finishing the game once. It is found in
the broken window of the Cut-Rite Chainsaw store near the Church.
Rock Drill: Comes with Chainsaw, but you have
to choose one or the other until you beat the game again. This isn't as much fun as the Chainsaw, and is more difficult to
use. It is found on the lower level of the Drawbridge Control Tower. It is effective against nurses as it pushes them away
before they can slash you.
Katana: Very difficult to use, but quite deadly once mastered. This appears randomly
after you beat the game. If you see it on the tally screen you've gotten it. It is in the Doghouse on Levin St., in the door
that was locked the first time through. Works extremely well on nurses and doctors.
Hyper Blaster: Not too
powerful, but it locks onto enemies until they're dead. You get this from the U.F.O. Ending. This is automatically in your
inventory after you get the U.F.O. Ending.
Gasoline Can: Obtained after
you finish the game once. Use this to power the Rock Drill or Chainsaw. It is found in the Gas Station next to the Church.
Stone: You receive this with a GOOD+ Ending. Use it in five selected areas to get the U.F.O. Ending. It is found on the
counter in the Convenience Store in the Next Fear after you beat the game with a Good+ Ending. See below for the correct places
to use it at.
Locations to use the Channeling Stone
1. On the roof of the nightmare school.
2. Just outside
the hospital doors before you fight the Giant Moth Boss.
3. At Norman's Motel, in the parking lot outside the apartments.
Inside the boat before you go to the lighthouse.
5. On top of the lighthouse.
*Note that everytime you use the Channeling
Stone you will be outside at night time.
Extra Options Menu: Enter the
options screen from the Main menu or Item screen and press any of the 4 trigger buttons (L1, R1, L2, R2). This will enable
the "extra options" menu. After playing through the game once, you get a few new options: Bullet Adjust allows you to receive
more bullets every time you pick up a box. The more times you beat the game, the more bullets you can get. The view options
will give you the "Self-view" option, where the camera will always be directly behind Harry's head.
If you don't want to face the final boss (Alessa/Samael) there's a nifty trick you can do. Before you go downstairs to
confront the boss, waste all of your ammo. Empty the Handgun, Shotgun, and the Rifle. When you fight the boss, it will attack
a few times then die on its own. Simple. WARNING! I have received mail informing me that this trick won't work if you have
the hyperblaster - which has unlimited ammo. So use caution.

EASY/NORMAL: Just use the numbers. (Example 17 >> 18 << 03 >> 16)
HARD: You'll notice the roman numerals V and X in the code, V=5 and X=10, so
if you get the code VV6 >> 5 << 6 >> X1 then answer would be 16, 5, 6, 11
(5+5+6=16, 5, 6, 10+1=11).
EXTRA: The numbers stay the same, but the letters are as follows a=1, b=2,
c=3 etc. Use the number of the letter then add 9 to it. For example for the
code 4 >> h << i >> 7 it would be 4, 17, 18, 7 (4, h=8+9=17, 9+9=18, 7).

### BOSS: Conehead ###
Shoot him until you hear a siren, then he'll go down the stairs. After the
water has gone down, go down the stairs to the next area.
Strategy from Evil Cat (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I have an update (for normal mode) for you with Pyramid Head (Conehead). I
tried shooting him, and burned about 40 rounds of ammo I wasn't happy about
that, and he glazed me once an almost killed me. I tried it again, and you
can simply run away from him for about 2-3 minutes and he will give up and
leave. All you have to do is run straight along the wall to the corner of
the room and turn left. He swings at where you were, and then approaches
where you are. Now run to the end of the room and turn around. He swings at
the corner where you were last, then approaches you again. Run back along
the wall to the other corner and turn right, then run back to the door and
turn around. Repeat for about 2-3 minutes, and the siren goes off and he

typewriter, you'll need to write this code down because it's very important
(the code is random). Go into Room M2 and pick up the "Lapis Eye" key on the
small desk. Go back downstairs to the first floor and go into the
Examination Room. Go through this room to the Doctors Lounge. Look at the

Hard & Extra Hard: 1328
Head up to the third floor and input the code from the white board into the
double doors on the right. Go into Room S3. Maria will lay on the bed. Pick
up the roof key on the table beside her. Head up to the roof and walk on top
of the blue diary, then walk over to the Elevator Control Room. Conehead
will knock you down into the Special Treatment Room. Make sure you use the
First Aid Kit because you'll be low on health. Go in the second door from
the left and look at the blood on the wall. Write down the code from the
wall (this code will be random) and go into Room S14. Use the code from the
padded room for the number lock on the left, for the keypad on the right use

basement key. Return to the elevator, go to the third floor. If you need to
save use the save point in the middle of the stairs. Head downstairs to the
basement and go through the door. Move the shelf and then try to go down the
hole. When you do, Maria will walk into the room. After you've spoken to
Maria, go down the hole and pick up the copper ring on the floor, near the
blood. Return to the elevator, go to the second floor to the Day Room. Open
the locker on the floor to get the lead ring. Return to the elevator and go
to the third floor. Go into the Store Room to open the "Trick or Treat" Box.
It doesn't matter what puzzle mode you're on, the code is the same. First

of the elevator and use the lead ring and the copper ring, and then go in
the door. Go down lots of stairs and through the door at the bottom. When
you go round the next corner Conehead will start to chase you.
If you're playing on Hard action level shoot him a few times with the
Handgun then run away until he catches up with you. Repeat this until you
reach the elevator. If you're playing on Easy OR Normal action level just
run to the elevator and Conehead
will never be able to catch you.

down a long hallway and through the door at the end. Go through another door
and then go left. Follow the hallway along and go through the door at the
end of the hallway. Drop down the hole, turn about 90 degrees to your left
and check the wall. James should say "Huh, this is different." Hit the wall
3 times with the metal pipe, the wall should collapse. Go through the new
door and you'll be in the sewers. Turn right and go in the door on the
right. Go through another door on your right and pick up the spiral-writing
key. Your flashlight will go out so use the dry cell battery. Use the keypad
to the right of the door, you'll have to guess the code because it's random.
All you have to do is select 2 or 3 of the brighter buttons and guess until
you get the combination right. Use the spiral-writing key on the door that
is on its side to enter the prison.
(11) +++ TOLUCA PRISON +++
When you get up, pick up the tablet of the "Glutionous Pig" from the table

it'll automatically go down. Be sure to pick up the items in all 4 corners
of the elevator. When you reach the bottom you can use the save point. Go
through the door to the left of the save point to enter the Underground
(12) +++ UNDERGROUND LABYRINTH +++
Go left until you come to a wall the go right, follow the path until you
come to a ladder, go down it. Go straight on the up the ladder. Now you'll
have to do the face puzzle. I think to way to do it is to get the face with
the yellow eyes right side up facing James, and the face with the red eyes
facing James' left (I think). Now that you've done the puzzle go through the
newly opened hallway. After you've talked to Maria turn back and pick up the
wire cutter near the ladder. Go back to the first door you saw when you
entered the underground labyrinth, which was covered in wires. Use the wire
cutter on it, then go down the ladder. Walk forward then turn right and go
up the ladder. Go left and follow the passage, then go left again and up the
ladder. Go right and you'll see a metal grated floor, go round the gate to
your left and down the ladder. Go left AGAIN and follow the bendy passage
round to find another ladder. Go straight on and you've guessed it, up
another ladder. Go left then go up the ladder. Use the save point, then go
through the door. Walk forward and you'll hear Angela say "No Daddy! Please!
Don't!" and James will go through a door with newspapers on it. Now it's
time to fight another boss.
### BOSS: Door Monster ###
I recommend using the Rifle.
Once you've beaten the boss go out of the room, then through the door on
your right. Follow the corridor along and go through the door on the left.
Now pull the following rope:
Easy: The Kidnapper (Middle right).
Normal: The Arsonist (Bottom right).
Hard: The Counterfeiter (First rope near the door).
Extra Hard: The Thief.
Go out the room and turn right. Follow the corridor along and go through the
door on your left. Pick up the key of the persecuted then leave the room. Go
right and follow the corridor along AGAIN and go into the door in front of
you. Use the key of the persecuted on the handcuffs, then go down the
ladder. Pick up the first aid kit and turn right, now you'll be in a
Catacomb. Pick up all the items on the floor, then use the save point on the
gravestone if you want. Go down the hole and run down the LONG hallway until
you come to a door. When you open the door you'll have to fight Eddie.
### BOSS: Eddie ###
In the first room use the Rifle. In the second room use the Shotgun.
After you've beaten Eddie, go through the big double doors opposite where
you entered the boss room. Go right and there'll be a save point on top of a
barrel. Carry on down the wooden slope to the boat.
(13) +++ USE THE BOAT +++
Easy & Normal: Use the left analogue stick to steer the boat towards the
Hard & Extra Hard: Rotate the left analogue stick anti-clockwise to rotate
the boat to the left, then when you're facing the light rotate the left
analogue anti-clockwise and the right analogue stick clockwise AT THE SAME
TIME. This will move the boat forward. Now steer the boat towards the light.
(14) +++ LAKE VIEW HOTEL +++
Once you've got to the light go up the wooden ramp and up 2 lots of stone
steps. At the top go left and pick up the "Little Mermaid" Music Box from
the fountain, then enter the Lake View Hotel.
Pick up the map on your left then go straight on and down the stairs. Go to
the end of the corridor and pick up the can of thinner in the open elevator,
then head back upstairs. Go through the double doors to your left OR right
of the stairs and go in the Lobby. Go into the reception and pick up the key
to Room 312 from the key holder on the wall, then go back into the Lobby. Go
through the double doors on your left, now go to the Restaurant "Lake
Shore." Now walk over to the piano and there'll be a short animation with
Laura. Pick up the "Fish" key from the table with the white tablecloth near
the window, and exit the room. Kill the 2 door monsters that will appear and
if you're low on ammo go into the big grey room (look at your map) to pick
up 3 boxes of Handgun Bullets and one box of Rifle Shells. Now head up to
the second floor.
If you're still low on ammo check the Reading Room for some more. As you
leave check the small cabinet near the window for 2 boxes of Handgun
Bullets. Go into the Cloak Room, pick up the first aid kit, 2 boxes of
Shotgun Shells, 2 boxes of Handgun Bullets, then use the "Fish" key on the
briefcase to get the key to Hotel Room 204. Now make your way to Hotel Room

in front of you. Go through the wall to Room 202 and use the can of thinner
on the photo on the bed to get the code for the suitcase which is on the
floor. Input the code from the photo in the suitcase to get the "Cinderella"
Music Box, and then leave the room. Make your way to the elevator (the "E"
on the map) and pick up a health drink and some Rifle Shells. Open the door
to the left of the elevator (the big grey room using the map). When you
enter pick up 2 health drinks from the cleaning trolley, turn around and
there'll be a save point. Go into the elevator and the alarm will sound,
