Getting Started


[edit] Attacking

When you encounter a fiend, your only possible options are to run away, or you have to attack it. To attack a monster, first you will require a weapon equipped(loaded with ammunition if you are using a gun). Press and hold R1 button to aim, then press the action button to attack. Some characters can also attack using their special movement. When aiming with the R1 button, you can choose the attacking level. Hold up on the D-pad and the R1 button to aim up, hold down on the D-pad and the R1 button to aim down. Similarly, you can shift left or right using the D-pad when aiming. When no weapon is equipped, your character will shove using the shoulder instead. Shoving allow more space for your character to escape. Shoving from behind open up more spaces. You can also switch the target while aiming. To do so, press L1 while holding R1. The L1 button can also act as a 'refresh' button when there is only one enemy in the room, useful for aiming fast-moving monster. Beginning the Attacking Portion • To reload a weapon, simply combine the ammunition and the weapon in the Inventory Screen, or tap the L1 button. • Do take note that if there is no sufficient space, any pole-type melee weapons (for example, Iron Pipe) will 'bounced' by the wall, and the attack will not be made.

[edit] Climbing

To climb, simply press the action button next to the thing you want to climb. You can use the climbing function to climb ladder, ledges and object. Note that you can only climb onto certain items and ladders.

[edit] Collection

From here, you can view the collection of the unlockables that the game has to offer. Use L1 and R1 to toggle between the sub menus, and the D-pad to move the cursor around the unlockables. Highlight one that is not blank to get a description and the points needed information, which is shown at the bottom left of the screen. On the right is the "RESULT", which is the points that you have accumulated. You can spend them to purchase the unlockables, and any purchased unlockables will have a "OK" words on it. To purchase, simply highlight any unlockable and press the action button. Press the action button to confirm, or cancel to cancel buying. Below shows what you can do after buying them. • On the "GALLERY", press the action button to view the picture. • On the "COSTUME", press the action button to view a description of the costume. To use them, select them in the CHARACTER SELECT screen when you start a game. • On the "MOVIE", press the action button to choose which movie scene you wish to view. • On the "SOUND", press the action button to choose the sound/music you wish to hear. Use the D-pad to choose the track. At any time, press the cancel button to return to the main menu.

[edit] Network

Selecting "NETWORK" brings you to a menu, where you will be asked to save your unsaved data as 'starting a network game may result in a loss of unsaved system data." Press "X" to proceed. Initially, it will search for a NET file. Without a file you will not be able to save your login name and other players' information. Choose to create one if you want. A NET file requires 123 KB of free space in the memory card to be created.

[edit] Shoving

Some objects can be shove along the ground. The purpose of shoving objects are to build a route so you can advance the game, or build barricade. To shove, stand beside an object, and hold the D-pad against the direction of the object. Beginning the Shoving Proportion: • Note that only some items can be push. Similarly, you can stop the zombies from entering a room by shoving against the door. • Note that the shoving will be terminated should there be any obstacles (be it an enemy, other character or an item) in the way.

[edit] Single Play

The game will search and load any saved data on the memory card. Then, you will be brought to the SCENARIO SELECT screen. Initially, there are only 1 scenario available, which is the "OUTBREAK" scenario. Don't worry, you will unlock 4 more after repeated plays. Use the D-Pad to scroll between the scenarios if you have more than 1 available for play. Below display a brief description of the scenario, and press the triangle button for information on the scenario events that you have done. Initially, it will be blank, but after playing the game and doing tasks, it will be recorded here. Press the action button and you will be brought to the CHARACTER SELECT. Use the D-pad to scroll between the characters, action button to confirm the selection or O button to return to the scenario selection screen.
