 Deception III works with a DualShock-type controller, but if the analog mode
 is turned on, only the vibration function will work -- the analog sticks are
 not used whatsoever (and the L3/R3 buttons accordingly).

 Reina can also do an about-face (180-degree turn) by pressing R1/L1 at the
 same time. This is useful when running away from enemies nearby, as she's
 always faster while running away than backing up -- as it should be.

 "The island of Alendar lies hidden beyond the Great Sea, as if abandoned by
 the rest of the world. A fantastic ancient tale has been handed down on this
 island through the generations. But as time passed, people began to forget,
 until all that remained in memory of hte ancient tail was a picture and the
 words, 'Legendary Stone...'

 In the kingdom of Alendar, there was a serious shortage of laborers. After
 many years of war with Burganfada, most of the population had been wiped out.
 Criminal organizations on Alendar saw this as a perfect opportunity to kidnap
 people from Burganfada and bring them to the island to serve as slaves.

 Amidst these trying times on Alendar, the heroic King Arcadia, who brought an
 end to the war, died suddenly. A dark shadow fell over the islanders and the
 kingdom of Alendar once again, under King Frederick, the successor to the
 throne...."

 Battling in Deception III is done purely with traps, and on a per-room basis.
 There's a definite flow to the action because of this. This is generalized
 for a reason: the game has a terrific "Trap License" mode to get one's skill
 level upped, and there's even the ability to enter dungeons without enemy
 interference and practice trap combos. Definitely do this if you're a first-
 -timer as it'll pay off handsomely.

 1) Enter room that contains an enemy. There can often be 6+ enemies in a
    level, but there will never be more than two enemies in a dungeon at the
    same time. When a current one dies, the next on "the list" spawns.

 2) Get a visual, see where they are, and what their powers are. Enemies of
    the same type won't have differing sprites, so if you've seen one, you've
    seen 'em all.

 3) Setup floor, wall, and ceiling traps appropriately. There are some caveats
    about this, however:

    - Floor/Ceiling traps cannot occupy the same tile

    - Traps cannot be set on initial traps. For instance, a ceiling trap can't
      be set on the same tile as a ceiling fan, but a Rising Floor could be
      set under it.

    - Only three traps can be set at a type (1 of each type) and only nine can
      be brought into battle (3 of each type)

 4) Attack enemy using Reina as bait or just her wits

 5) Hitting an enemy with traps lowers their HP; Reina's HP lowers when she's
    hit by attacks as well. Healstones, one-time-use green rocks, can heal
    her if she's getting walloped.

 6) The mission ends when all enemies are defeated; likewise, if Reina is
    defeated, the same outcome occurs and the option to retry is given.

 Anger/Fear are enemy-only statuses and can't be inflicted on Reina. All of
 the statuses can be cured by the passage of time, or touching a healstone,
 which alleviates the symptoms immediately.

 Like in all my guides, this section is for general tips I've found. Howeer,
 if a reader has a doozy s/he'd like to send in, and it's worth other people
 knowing about, I'll definitely add it in.

 • KNOW YOUR ENEMY. There is a motley assortment of enemies who will try to
   bring Reina down, and they've all got their own sets of immunities and
   weaknesses. Most will have similar AI when it comes to movement however,
   and there are catch-alls to avoid having to try too many varied approaches
   (such as no enemy being immune to the Foot Cutter trap or Stealth Rock).

 • EXPERT MODE IS HARD. And while you may come in cocky, you'll probably end
   up penniless. Yes, this mode will probably take quite a bit of cash to
   get through, unless you're super-smart or super-stingy. It may take a few
   playthroughs to get enough money to make decent headway if you're just
   playing lazily, and a lot less time if you devise some good money-making
   traps. [Money gained in Expert Mode is not actually received.]

 • LEARN HOW TO EXTEND COMBOS. The basic setup the game show is hitting some-
   -one with a Bearclaw, then a wall projectile, and finishing with a pendulum
   trap. However, there are many variances to this. Pay attention to the trap
   arkrates, which you'll notice are higher for some types (vases) than they
   are for others (vacuum floors). 

 • PAY ATTENTION TO THE ENVIRONMENT. When you're setting traps in an unfamiliar
   room, take a gander at the initial devices and see if any can be used in
   traps. They often have higher arkrates than normal traps. Water conducts
   electricity, rocks can fall down stairways, etc. If there are tumbleprops,
   try to find the "convergence" points for multiple traps in order to easily
   build combos to make moolah.

 • REINA IS FLESH-AND-BLOOD BAIT. Since she has no powers besides traps, she's
   got to use all her might to lure enemies to their doom. Intruder AI will
   often follow her trail, although some keep their distance for projectiles.
   One thing to remember is that Reina can keep an enemy on a target tile by
   forcing them to make an attack (such as a sword swing) and then quickly
   moving out of the way. Repeat this a few times and it'll keep a target
   primed for cremation.

 After our heroine's named (default: Reina) and the events surrounding her
 untimely incarceration are revealed, a helping hand is given in the form of a
 mysterious stranger outside. The player will take control of Reina and use
 "traps" on enemies.

 ORDER: Gordon -> Jade
     _____
    |     |   This mission is kind of like a tutorial battle. At first there
    |START|   are already traps set up in the jail cell, and they can be used
    |_   _|   by using the X, Triangle, and Square buttons -- these correspond
  ____| |__   with floor, ceiling, and wall traps, respectively. When Gordon's
 |         |  on one of the markers -- which are invisible to normal humans,
 |_   __   |  by the way -- the trap should hit and damage the torturer. Since
  _| |_ |  |  he doesn't move, just do this order: Bear Trap, Arrow Slit,
 |     ||  |  Pendulum.
 |SPIKE||__|
 |_____|      When Gordon's dead, a second jailer will show up and Reina will
              have to practice setting traps herself. Mimic the first setup or
 create your own! A Spring Floor can throw the cruel captor into the iron
 maiden and give him some one-on-one time with a spiky death. A funner way to
 end the level is to enter the hallway -- this area is part of a castle but
 most rooms aren't accessible for now -- and lure Jade to the only other room
 that can be entered. Use a spring floor [etc.] to detain him, then rush out
 and use the floating yellow orb (switch) to drop a spiked ceiling on him!

 To borrow Mortal Kombat terms, if Reina pulled off a flawless victory, she
 will get an extra 1000 Dreak. The option to make traps isn't available right
 now, however...but it will be soon enough.

 We'll have a new map for this battle, set in an old factory warehouse. Here's
 a short overview of traps and their functions:
  __________
 |D   _     |       (A) Oil Barrel -- explosive and can be set in motion
 | A |_   B |       (B) Tumble-Prop -- falls off wall (switch-activated)
 |  C  | E  |___    (C) Volt Wirenet -- electrifies floor (switch-activated)
 | |¯¯¯|______  |   (D) Healstone -- fully heals Reina if she's damaged
 | |          | |   (E) Hook -- ceiling-fixed object in perpetual motion
 | |________  | |   (F) Pan -- damages enemies who fall on top of it
 |_     _   | | |   (G) Oven -- 2-entrance furnace that damages foes inside it
   |  _| HI | | |   (H) Ceil Spear -- Spear plummets down (switch-activated)
   | |FG    |_| |   (I) Lumber Saw -- hacks anyone who touches it
   |    J    ___|   (J) Topple-Prop -- falls over in direction opposite impact
   |________|       (K) Rotagear -- flings anyone away if they touch

 Healstones each have one use, and while there may be a few on larger levels,
 they're spread out. Tumble-Props can be set off by forces like walls and
 explosions. Enemies will avoid the oven (fireplace) and other dangerous
 objects generally, so Reina's traps will have to coax them into a...more
 opportune position. Use the 'Free Training' option on the intermission menu
 if y'want a chance to get your bearings in a slightly larger environment.

 Reina starts in the warehouse portion while the two angry villagers are
 inbound via the east passageway. If you check their data, you'll see they
 have no skills and weak attacks; take advantage of this by setting up some
 good combos. The example I call the "Classic Stair Combo" -- the most basic
 in any of the Deception games -- is to trap someone at the foot of an incline
 with a bear trap, hit them with a projectile wall trap, then finish up by
 rolling a boulder down the incline for a 3-hit combo. It should be a cinch
 to get a perfect health bonus on this level. Enjoy the horrifying screams,
 'cuz you'll be hearing 'em in droves! Ahaha...

 Wow, another new map -- that's three in a row! Way better than the variety in
 Deception II. The trap placements can be viewed in the 'Map' option under the
 Enemy Info tag (intermission screen). I'll just give an overview of the new
 initial traps 'round these parts.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 These two jokers are a step above villager types in terms of stats, but have
 no special characteristics and little fighting prowess, despite the weapons
 they're holding. The battle starts with Gina cornering Reina in the castle's
 foyer; this is a good chance to use the slide stairs, activated by a switch
 at their peak. This is also a semi-easy battle to get a perfect health bonus
 in, although remember that it only counts if no damage is incurred in any
 form, including by Reina herself (healing doesn't alleviate this problem).

 OBTAIN: Thunder Emblem, Fire Emblem

 Marco explains that by mixing these emblems with basic traps, they can make
 new traps with different effects. The 'Trap Element' option is available on
 the intermission menu now, so take the time to spend some of that hard-earned
 cash. I recommend making a Thunder Claw, which is a quick trap that can zap
 any foes in water.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 We're still in Castle Agony for now. The first two intruders start with the
 heroine in the Bridge Courtyard. Christina is the first enemy so far who can
 use both long-range (boomerang) attacks and close-range, both with equal
 aptitude...but still low power, relatively. Remember that double-tapping L1
 and R1 can do a roll instead of sidestepping, which is a good way to evade.
 When her health is low enough, Christina will bail, leaving Jeguard to fend
 for himself. His gigantic hammer can shake the ground and temporarily stun
 Reina, but unless there's a partner to take advantage of that time, it's not
 much of a problem. His HP is rather high for such an early generic baddie.

 OBTAIN: Blast Bomb

 This new item is the basic "bomb" type, which can be combined with emblems
 and whatnot now. This will be the first of many; you may have noticed that
 there are a few missing types (vacuum floors, etc.) still. All in good time!

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 Silvia and Resphena are with Reina in the bridge courtyard to start off with,
 and are really cocky about their odds. Luckily there's a very simple trick to
 turn everything in the player's favor -- run through them and drop the bridge
 on their noggins! This will usually catch both, killing the amazoness and
 heavily wounding the white mage. If needed, lure the remaining member toward
 the foyer and do a stair slide > falling rock combo.

 For round two, Reina appears in the castle's Cliff Chamber with Ares and
 Raditz. This place is pretty crappy for close-range fighting but the Church
 next-door is a great setup, with nice flat surfaces throughout. Avoid damage
 by going to the cliff room's bottom and using the Launcher -- ha! The topple
 props might be the easiest choice, since Reina can put a claw trap at the
 stair-bottom, then use a pendulum (etc.) to knock the thing over manually.

 OBTAIN: Impact Emblem

 This adds an 'impact' element to the traps, which basically gears them toward
 blunt-force trauma instead of fiery and electrical deaths. It's too bad that
 the Buzzsaw -- probably the most useful wall trap from Deception II -- has
 been nerfed so that it doesn't carry the target anywhere initially; that'll
 need four pricy orbs. Try creating a Smash Floor with the new emblem, though;
 that hasn't lost its usefulness.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 Reina begins in the cliff chamber, with Garcia in the Prison Chamber and
 Osborne flanking from the east via the Bright Courtyard. There's nothing
 special about them; I chose the killing field as Osborne's starting place,
 just 'cause it's fun and close to where Garnet starts, in the foyer. She'll
 appear alone, even if both comrades are dead. She has the ability to evade
 spring floors, though! The showdown with Sirado takes place (automatically)
 in the foyer...although the giant wuss will run away after he's been damaged
 even a little bit. Anticlimactic!

 OBTAIN: Timer Ring

 The Timer Ring, once made with a trap and triggered by Reina, will continue
 to self-trigger at set intervals, sort of like wall or floor pikes. Is this
 useful? Not really, if you're looking for precision. If you like playing cat-
 -and-mouse games with the hapless foes, then it has entertainment value.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 Almost all the enemies here can attack from long-range! A short overview of
 the new classes is necessary, s'pose. Rangers are like hunters but throw
 their boomerangs in a straight line, making evasion more than a pipe dream.
 Annoying darkwitches can darken Reina's field of vision if they're in the
 same room, which is similar to oil status but without flame susceptibility.
 Bruisers are like ramped-up fighters, and also jump through doorways when
 entering a room (this can be planned for, by putting a pendulum-like trap
 in their range, haha). Flame Users are fat BDSM-lookin' goofballs who blow
 streams of flames in a straight line, not unlike Pyromaniacs from Deception
 II (except without two more streams).

 Anyway, the first two enemies start with Reina in the Church, trying to flank
 her. If you want to preserve the perfect health bonus, retreating toward the
 bridge courtyard makes sense; just remember that rangers can jump over rails
 if Reina's below -- easy shortcut! Judeka and Lorenz will both appear in the
 foyer. Laughably, if you're in the bridge courtyard, Lorenz will jump into
 the room and fall right over the railing...what a klutz. Finally, Igor will
 appear from the foyer as well. He's like a normal enemy but is immune to
 fire damage.

 OBTAIN: Vase

 This base ceiling weapon drops a vase on enemies' heads, making them run
 around in a blind daze while doing damage. This isn't that useful of a trap
 to me since it requires precise timing if a summon ring isn't used. BUT, the
 Oil Vase later on is great -- if you miss, it covers the floor in an oil
 slick, which is a great leadoff attack for someone entering a room.

 With Castle Agony a blazing mortar pile, Reina has relocated to Castle Hue,
 an even bigger deathtrap than the previous residence. Like usual, here's the
 overview of new traps (annotation 'SA' means switch-activated)

         |¯¯¯¯¯|____
         |      __  |                 (A): Magic Square - lightning hits [SA]
 |¯¯¯¯¯|_|     |  | |                 (B): Black Torch - rolls/burns foe

 |_____| |_____|  | |                 (D): Guillotine - falls on foe; autofire
 |  C  |      ____| |___              (E): Pendulumax - large pendulum swinging
 |_   _|_____|          |________     (F): Waterwheel - spiked waterwheel!
 |        _  |   F  G    _____   |_   (G): Slash Fan - cuts any elevated foes
 |  DE   | |_           | |        |  (H): Cart - in motion, runs over foes
 |       |   |__________| |        |  (I): Incinerator -- a.k.a. a fireplace
 |_   ___|___|       |____|  H I J |  (J): Powder Box -- bomb waiting to happen

             |_______|                - White Chamber, Blue Chamber

 Most of these are self-explanitory. The waterwheel is in constant motion,
 and anyone bumping into it (or falling on top) is dragged under for heavy
 damage; very useful. The guillotine and pendulumax has one of the hardest-
 -hitting combos here, a bit easier with a summon ring (later). Use a wall
 to extend someone in front of the guillotine, which drops; trigger a floor
 trap under it that shoots the enemy two tiles, landing in front of the
 pendulumax, which damages when they stand up. Ouch! The Foot Cutter we get
 later is perfect for the floor trap portion.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 These interlopers are interested in taking Reina's brooch, and both appear
 in the southern entrance (foyer); our heroine meanwhile starts all the way
 in the NW magic circle room. The dynamic duo approaches from the east, so the
 cart or bridge room is the best place to meet 'em. Bombers are immune to
 fire and blasts, while assassins shrug off (yet-unobtainable) flash attacks.
 Since they both have low HP, any one of the traps in the bridge or cart room
 can probably OHKO 'em...that's the ecstacy of gold for you! [My favorite is
 using a 9-panel-throw Smash Floor to drop 'em onto the waterwheel...ahaha...]
 Just watch out for the assassin's "jump" attacks, which makes him appear by
 Reina, usually right behind her. Spring floors don't work on assassins,
 though. It's worth noting that electrocuting the water in the room has a
 very widespread effect, more than any other canal in the game.

 OBTAIN: Cold Emblem

 This awesome emblem will typically do damage to the enemy and freeze them
 in a giant icicle, a big enough delay that it'll give leeway for slow-moving
 traps. It's certainly better than fire-elemental traps now, except for the
 weak Snow Ball ceiling rock, which is mostly for laughs.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 The first two are with Reina in the Red Chamber at the start, a.k.a. the
 awesome guillotine/pendulumax combo room. It might not be possible now,
 but that's okay; Miguel will leave after his perfect health has been nicked.
 Ortega appears in the mine cart chamber, far from the action initially. This
 should give time to nuke Balboa, the brother of the last torturer we killed.
 Ortega has a running dash-n'-slash attack, so try to keep your distance.
 Cupido will leave in the same way Miguel did, with his tail between his legs.

 OBTAIN: Magnet Wall, Summon Ring

 Magnet Walls will automatically attract anyone not immune to the wall, and
 then give off a certain effect. The Summon Ring is by far one of the best
 rings, which may be why it appears so early. By sticking this on a weapon,
 it adds a small delay to its triggering; during this delay, any foe in the
 vicinity will be inexplicably drawn toward it, setting up their own doom.
 The downside to this is some enemies are completely immune to this effect,
 which renders the traps mostly impotent. Don't add it to everything, I guess
 I'm saying.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 Reina starts in the NW chamber, Gemini the guillotine room, and Dustin the
 mine cart area (what a big surprise, huh?). The obvious rendezvous is the
 bridge/waterwheel location, and it probably will be! Ninja can jump around
 and swipe with their wolverine-like claws, and are immune to spring-floor
 traps. They can throw knives at mid- and long-range, too, so try to keep 'em
 in view. The goofy miner can throw a semi-homing projectile; lose it around
 tight corners. Rutger appears third, from the guillotine room; Helsing last
 from the mine cart vicinity. Alchemists can self-heal and activate traps
 that have switches, but only the former will really see use.

 OBTAIN: Chaos Emblem

 This sweet emblem is very good, and usually makes weird traps or those with
 special characteristics. I suggest creating the 'Stealth Rock' ceiling trap,
 which will never be evaded due to its invisibility. Also, if it has three
 orbs or more, it has a piercing effect...basically, it won't explode on the
 first thing it hits. Very nice! Try out other combinations, too.

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 Just two enemies with weak HP, and they corner our heroine in the much-used
 bridge/waterwheel room. Since it's fun to use the natural environment's traps
 and both are immune to spring floors, the Extension -> Waterwheel combo is
 hilarious and damaging, even more so with a Snow Cradle pointed at the other
 end -- it kills them but encases them in ice first.

 OBTAIN: Vacuum Floor

 Vacuum floors are like magnets, except they use suction to draw people in
 (which does circumvent some immunities). They can have added elemental
 effects and

 |____________|____________|_________________________|_______________________|

 The only new class here is the Mercenary, a skulking brute with a sword 'bout
 as big as the Eiffel Tower. Most of the classes have long-range attacks for
 this too, and since they're dexterous, now's a good time to employ the Stealth
 Rock in all its misunderstood glory. The first two enemies start in the foyer,
 Althena/Rebecca/Zeon the guillotine room, and Sirano the foyer. Mercenaries
 are immune to wall traps, remember. Sirano will leave when his health is low
 enough.

 OBTAIN: Cursed Emblem

 This may be one of the more used emblems, since it involves inflicting nasty
 status effects on the enemy. My favorite is the Foot Cutter floor trap, which
 will 'Slow' the enemy. This is incredibly MEAN to do, but if you aim the thing
 at a fireplace, you can get much more damage out of the foes than a normally
 moving baddie. This will be a great looping trap if equipped with a Summon
 Ring.

 Back to the factory for this level! Rutha and Dorgev start in the northern
 workshop along with Reina. The new class here is a 'Magnetman' which, in
 addition to being magnet-immune, can spin and act like a magnet, unrelenting
 until Reina is pulled in close enough. The wall-fixed tumble prop here can
 usually hit at least one pursuer. If y'can lead everyone to the southern
 room, anyone who hits the lumber saw will be chewed up and spit out 'neath
 the Ceiling Spear. Zardos appears in the northern room as well.

 OBTAIN: Auto Ring

 This will make the selected trap completely autonomous, so that, once set,
 Reina has no control over its triggering. This is generally not that great
 for precision attacks, unless a manual trap is used to trigger the automatic
 one.

 Back to Castle Hue! Dyer and Iliad, two of the quicker characters, will try
 to gang up on Reina in the throne room -- relocate to the next-door chamber
 with the waterwheel for more damage opportunities. My favorite is knocking
 them onto the thing, then having a Snow Cradle pointed AWAY from it; whoever
 is hit by it is throw in the opposite direction the trap is set, ending up
 right back onto the trap. Perpetual pain, I presume? Ahaha...  All
 reinforcements will come from the guillotine room.

 Now, after battle, there'll be a scene where Cecilia asks Reina a question.
 The answer she chooses determines which path branch she'll end up on, which
 then will determine which ending and special trap are obtained. There's no
 wrong answer here; experiencing them all is half the fun!

 (1): "I will go along." -------> Next chapter is "
 (2): "No, I won't" ------------> Next chapter is "Poison"
 
 OBTAIN: Rising Emblem

 This emblem will give base traps a vertical function, or at least ability to
 "juggle" enemies a li'l bit.

 If Reina agreed to assist Cecilia in Chapter 14, this mission will be called

                          the two peculiar ones are Big Cerby and Ark Ship.
 The former is basically an incinerator statue which, when a nearby switch is
 pressed, blows a huge flame spout laterally. The Ark Ship, found in the same
 room, has a cannon fired at the mid-level walkway. Its switch is high above
 the lowest door, and to hit it, one would generally fire a projectile from
 the highest level. The laserbeam hits the entire mid level, but its use may
 go unnoticed if one doesn't pay attention (hint: try it in training first).

 MISSION: Poison
                  This is the easier of the two branches, and even features a
        |¯¯¯¯¯¯|  dungeon only accessible on this path. There are no new traps
 |¯¯¯¯|_|      |  besides the "Spear Rack" in the NE room, which needs a foe
 |     ____   _|  to fall on it to work...not that useful, even for 70 damage.
 |    |    | |
 |__  |    | |    Enemy wise, this will be the first appearance of a Footman
    | |   _| |_   on this path, one of the rarer classes. It's like a Bruiser
    | |  |     |  except with an immunity to the little-used flash status.
    | |__|     |  This battle also boasts the worst Giga-Arm in the game, with
    |__________|  a very substandard attack (54) compared to most (150).

 MISSION: Darkness Stomper

 In the "Darkness Stomper" chapter, Gardock & Krueger begin in the SE room,
 which takes awhile to reach. All of the reinforcements will come from that
 same point, so the eastern dual stairway is a good place to set up shop.

 There are three new types here. Flamemen are immune to fire, blasts, cold,
 and arrows, and have a long-range projectile that's evadable but powerful
 for this juncture. Their high HP means that blunt-force attacks are the best
 way to take care of 'em, so always pay attention to the environmental traps!
 Armors are like knights but actually wear armor, giving fire/blast/arrow
 immunities. They have a lunging attack with their pikes at close range, so
 keep a nice distance 'tween them and Reina. Finally, the best enemy in the
 game: the Hellknight. These enemies will teleport to a (fixed) location when
 entering a new room, and have a flying-lunge attack when near Reina. Should
 they hit Reina, they'll hit her again when she's down -- that's over half
 her health! Suffice to say that these guys may actually pose a challenge, and
 can easily kill someone horsing off. [A 3-orb Stealth Rock can be great for
 Hellknight disposal!]

 The trick to Hellknights is that they always teleport into a room at the
 same spot, meaning if you know where they'll be (often center of room) ahead
 of time, you can plan a nasty surprise for 'em. They don't warp around when
 damaged however, so as long as y'keep a good distance between 'em, they
 shouldn't get any cheap attacks out of the deal. 'Course, it's always good
 to know where the healstone locations are; run away to them if a Hellknight
 two-hits!

 OBTAIN: Charge Ring

 The Charge Ring will lower the setup/recharge time for traps, so naturally
 it is incredibly useful for slow-loaders like falling rocks.

 If Reina agreed to accompany Cecilia in Ch. 14, this mission will be titled
 "Betrayal"; if she didn't, it's "Awakening from Nightmare". The map will be
 about Castle Hades, where the first mission took place, on a larger scale.
 ['SA' means switch-activated.]

 |_______     I   | |_|_    _|
         |________|__________|  - Audience Room, Doorway

 Of the new traps, there are a few interesting ones. The Mad Ceily takes up
 the entire ceiling of the furnace room, so that no similar traps can be set;
 a rising attack will knock them into the blades for a multi-hit combo!  The
 Mobile Saw in the SE stairway has a huge ark bonus rating if anyone manages
 to hit it (x2.5!), but it's elusive for a reason.

 MISSION: Awakening From Nightmare

 The easier of the two path branches, "Awakening from the Nightmare" stars no
 new enemies besides Cecilia, who'll finally get to show her stuff in battle.
 She's similar to an Amazoness but traded their special characteristic for
 all-around stats. She can throw knives (1 or 3) at mid-range, however. A cool
 thing about jumpers like ninja and assassins is, if Reina stands under the
 waterwheel bridge, they'll land up there instead of alongside her. Suckers!
 Cecilia only appears after her escorts have been completely destroyed.

 MISSION: Betrayal

 The fight begins in the belltower, probably my favorite room in the map for
 trappin'. Reinforcements all spawn from the furnace room in the map's center.
 There are a few new classes present among the regs. A 'Giga-Arm' has the
 highest attack power out of any generic enemy, and is a beast up-close --
 stay far, far away! Luckily it's rather slow and has no long-range attacks,
 so snipe it from afar. The 'Sage' is on par with the Hellknight class, if it
 was a mage. The explosive projectiles it shoots only sets up Reina as bait
 for the other enemies or sage target practice -- either way it's dangerous to
 be hit by one.

 If you want to know why I love the belltower so much, it's because there's a
 funny, cheap combo you can do. Put a Foot Cutter in front of a door, then a
 Mega Yo-Yo pointing toward it from the stairway. A wall trap should go in the
 corner nearest the door for safety measures. Now, simply wallop whoever comes
 in, knocking them back into the hallway before and in an effective perma-slow
 status. It helps to have the Foot Cutter with a Summon Ring, too. Just make
 sure to pay attention to the Sage, who will teleport behind Reina!!

 OBTAIN: Slave Emblem, Damage Ring

 This awesome emblem gives "slave" effects to traps, which is best summed up
 as gaining a measure of control over some movement, provided the enemies are
 at 50% health or less. Some, like the Hunter Blade, can be controlled without
 this prerequisite, however. The Damage Ring will increase the damage of any
 trap it's attached to, so for those who go after heavy-hitting combos, that's
 indispensible. If y'want specific trap recommendations, I'd go for the Slave
 Hammer (pendulum), which has a detachable mace that can really bowl people
 over if uncoupled midswing. The cool thing is, it doesn't blow up immediately!
 Use it to hit someone in a direction, and on the next swing, detach and let
 it hit 'em again!

 MISSION: Revolt

 This lineup is roughtly the same one seen in Chapter 15 if Reina agreed to
 go with Cecilia, the only difference being Scorpio's appearance instead of
 a Flameman. In this case, this will be the first appearance of a Hellknight,
 the most formidable generic enemy in the game. If near Reina on a level
 surface, they have a hyperquick dash-n'-slash attack for a 2-hit combo that
 will halve her life. There's only one chance to escape after that, or it's
 game over time. When damaged, they'll glow white and be damage-immune for a
 little while, too; and, when entering a new room, they teleport to its
 center instead of coming in the front door (plan around this with a trap
 waiting). The best environment for fighting Hellknights is ones with lots
 of stairways.

 One thing that's different than Ch. 15b is that, rather than the enemies all
 spawning from the same place in the Dark Ruins, none of them appear initially;
 Reina has to search for them. In this case, Reina must enter one of the large
 rooms in the NW, N-Center, or NE to locate the prey, and is locked in upon
 finding the prey. Gardock is in the NW room, Krueger and Scorpio the middle,
 and Cervantes/Gelfaust the eastmost. Play it safe with Gelfaust and put lots
 of space 'tween him and Reina, or you may end up dying a few times (like I
 did first playthrough!) 

 MISSION: Friend

 In this mission, Reina will see her friend Josephine about to be thrown into
 the dungeon. Two options are presented initially, then two more based off of
 what's chosen. It doesn't really matter what's chosen as the outcome (in
 terms of chapters) is unchanged.

 No matter how Reina answers during "Friend," she'll still end up fighting the
 same group of people. If she picked "I want to rescue," she begins in the
 furnace room with Clarevil & Bradley, and since there's no ceiling traps
 accessible there, it'd be wise to relocate somewhere better. If Reina chose
 "I won't do anything" or "Give Up," the battle will begin in the belltower.
 Reinforcements will all arrive from the belltower or furnace room, whichever
 one Reina ain't in.

 MISSION: For a Loved One

 The easier, shorter of the two path branches, this involves some of the foes
 that could have appeared in a variance of Chapter 16. The mission takes
 place in Castle Hue (pictured below) instead of the Dark Ruins. Reins starts
 in the magic circle room, her first two pursuers the waterwheel chamber. The
 throneroom can be a little cramped, so heading for greener pastures next-door
 is recommended. Reinforcements will arrive from the guillotine room.

 MISSION: Time-Controlling Stone

 Made up of some enemies from mission 22b, this is the only mission on this
 path that features a Master, a special class similar to a Mercenary but with
 better stats and similar immunities. After eavesdropping, Reina starts in the
 'Guardian Stairs' portion with all enemies stemming from the south-central
 dead-end chamber. Even though Phalangist and Gordius are ranking officers,
 they're not immune to summon rings like some other bigwigs.

 MISSION: Ice Judgement

 No one here is a new face, sadly. Reina and her two suitors appear in the
 furnace room to start, and as we've seen before, relocation is better since
 no ceiling traps are available. Be careful of Vergilius, who can really beat
 the crap out of Reina if he teleports behind her and gets even one projectile
 blast off.

 MISSION: Long Parting

 This is the longer of the two path branches by a tad. Reina begins in the
 dead-end (south-central) chamber while her prey all start in the SW entrance.
 Remember that Shadows and Ninja will jump upon entering a room, trying to
 attack Reina from behind -- run away until they appear. Cecilia appears only
 when her cohorts are dead, and with the battle automatically taking place in
 the entrance. The knives she throws, either a single or 3 in a fan formation,
 can inflict Poison so know where the nearest healstone is! She's not immune
 to summon rings like some other story characters are. Also, watch out for her
 ninja-like jumping attacks! She can be easily disposed of in the room with a
 big pillar, just north of the starting point.

 MISSION: Dying Lamp

 This mission doesn't have a Hellknight, so naturally it'll be easier. The
 motley crew assembled here has a few peculiarities: the 2nd-worse Giga-Arm
 in the game (90 ATK instead of 150) and the best Slasher in the game; this
 is also the only time Edgar is fought. Dizhak is a leftover from Chapter 15b,
 and is immune to some of the easier traps. This is the first mission a Sage
 is fought in (on this path), so it helps to know that they teleport behind
 Reina when damaged. If they manage to land a clean hit -- which does a lot
 by itself -- they will abuse that position with their projectiles until our
 heroine is a sputtering pile of oil. Don't take 'em lightly, since they're
 the magic-casting equivalent of a Hellknight. Like the previous chapter,
 Reina starts in the SE dead-end room and the forces arrive from the entrance.
 [Lavaan and Dizhak only appear after all the previous enemies are kaput.]

 MISSION: Fall of the Imperial Family

 Reina starts in the SW passage with the first two cronies, summoned by the
 King for protection. They're nothing special -- none of 'em are, really --
 but the Hellknight towards the end can still spell disaster, especially if
 Reina's been bruised up by the previous morons. Before taking Gulhazard on,
 locate a healstone if need be! If you lure him to the belltower, when he
 teleports in, it'll always be underneath the bell trap -- what a loser!
 Frederick only appears after all his flunkies are toast, and unsurprisingly,
 he's kind of a pushover, even with long- and short-range capabilities. Reina
 automatically starts with him in the castle entrance, and he likes to flee
 like a chicken-wuss...haha. In fact, he's one of the few enemies who actually
 COWERS, which was a common coward trait in Deception II. Just make sure to
 find a good looping combo (I chose Smash Floor -> Volt Wall) to do him in,
 else he can heal himself to full in one go (although doesn't always).

 MISSION: "Stratagem"

 This is a really run-of-the-mill battle, but it takes place at Castle Hades,
 which was where the first battle in the game occured. The enemies'll corner
 Reina at the start, in the hallway just south of the iron maiden jailcell.
 It's a good idea to lead everyone back to the belltower and make that the
 base of operations, since its differing elevation makes a great location for
 fighting Gandolph. He's the most powerful Hellknight in the game, with ATK
 comparable to the best Giga-Arms. Remember that these guys gain the advantage
 if they get near Reina (or on level ground near her), so stay away while
 trapping this guy. [Gandolph/Chestbarn appear only after the first two foes
 are defeated, from the furnace room.]

 MISSION: "At the Massacre's End"

 Gordius and Phalangist try to start the match by tag-teaming Reina in the SE
 chamber. If you can put a Foot Cutter [etc.] with a summon ring attachment,
 you can throw both into the wall fan and get a huge combo without much work.
 Reinforcements all come from the furnace room, so long as Reina ain't there.
 Note that Gandolph the Hellknight actually has almost double the attack of
 a normal one (90), which means he's even deadlier than the usual fare. He
 has no different AI, but is still incredibly vicious if he gets ahold of
 Reina. You can use the Killer Wall -> Smash Floor combo in the initial room
 to loop Gandolph if you fear his wrath like me! Haha...

 Margareta appears last, when all her imperial guard has been annihilated.
 She has the magical potency of a Sage and can recoup health like a Whitemagic,
 as well as having her own laserbeam attack which she uses in a fan formation.
 Don't take her lightly! Congratulations on beating the #4 Ending! OBTAIN:

 retained. Play through a few times to try all the path branches, since that
 is the only way to fill the trap book!

 This 23rd mission is only played if Reina didn't go with Cecilia in Chapter
 fourteen. It also takes place in Castle Hades, and like usual, the belltower
 is a great area to fortify oneself in. The only new enemy here is the Queen,
 which is like a mixture of a Sage (90 long-range attack power, teleports
 behind Reina upon damage) and Whitemagic (recoups health). Like a Hellknight
 or Sage, if she manages to attack Reina once, she can string the combo over
 and over, often leading to the heroine's death. On a general level, Reina
 starts in the NE hallway while Mildred and Duigal try to flank her from the
 two next-door rooms. Reinforcements arrive from the furnace chamber.

 After defeating the Queen, Reina will have control over all the Legendary
 Stones and can have her wish. Which option she picks decides the final
 chapter's layout, and the ending obtained (1, 2, or 3).

 MISSION: Answered Wish

 If Reina chose to help Albert with his longevity, this same enemy formation
 will take place in Castle Hades. None of the enemies, including Miguel and
 his built-up hype, should be much trouble. That's just how it is, I guess.
 Beating the game here earns Ending #3 (Obtain Barracuda + 50000 Dreak).

 MISSION: Back to the Beginning
     _______
  __|  ___  |      If Reina chose to go back in time, this final battle takes
 |      |_| |      place in her birthhome, a tiny two-room apartment with a
 |       _  |      lot of hallways. Right at the start, there'll be a Sage to
 |      | | |___   deal with -- the big guns are broken out! This apartment
 |  ____| |___  |  has a few unique initial traps, too:
 | |       ___| | 
 | |      |     |              - Pit Fence      - Footing Prop
 | |______|     |              - Antler         - Foot-Dropper
 |______________|              - Oil Lamp       - Thresher

 In addition, there's only one healstone in the largest room, so save it for
 later! Because this is a small home, leading enemies around can usually make
 them flank Reina. When the first two mercenaries are dead, then next two
 appear; Miguel's last, expectedly. Reinforcements will arrive from the
 sitting room, which is a good reason to make the shed the point of operations.
 This mission has two outcomes:

 - Reina Lives -> Ending #1 (Obtain Hell Emblem + 50000 Dreak)
 - Reina Dies --> Ending #2 (Obtain Killer Top + 50000 Dreak)

 If you want the classic ending, throw Miguel into the thresher!
          _________          _______    _______  _        ______   _ 
          \__   __/|\     /|(  ____ \  (  ____ \( (    /|(  __  \ ( )
             ) (   | )   ( || (    \/  | (    \/|  \  ( || (  \  )| |
             | |   | (___) || (__      | (__    |   \ | || |   ) || |
             | |   |  ___  ||  __)     |  __)   | (\ \) || |   | || |
             | |   | (   ) || (        | (      | | \   || |   ) |(_)

             )_(   |/     \|(_______/  (_______/|/    )_)(______/ (_)

 Remember that, whatever ending you get, saving afterward will make a 'clear'
 data. Any traps created, money (plus the bonus), and other records are all
 retained. Play through a few times to try all the path branches, since that
 is the only way to fill the trap book!

 |¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯|
 | Alchemist  | This man has the ability to self-heal and, more uniquely,    |
 |            | can activate initial traps if they have switches. Generally, |
 |            | though, they're easy pickins since their stats are mediocre. |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Amazoness  | These close-range fighters are like soldiers, except they've |
 |            | a disposition to jump down flights of stairs -- that usually |
 |            | ruins the chances of hitting them with any traps on that end |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Armor      | These knight's knights are armored, and thus immune to some  |
 |            | trap types (blasts, fire, arrows). They carry pikes and have |
 |            | a close-up dash attack, which makes them rather formidable.  |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Assassin   | These fleet-footed ninja types have great leaping ability,   |
 |            | and are immune to flash. If they're almost dead, they will   |
 |            | suicide as well. Always watch your back 'round these folks,  |
 |            | as they tend to appear behind the heroine. Worth noting, the |
 |            | expected immunity to spring floor traps is present.          |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Bomber     | These warriors are masked and armored, from which their bomb |
 |            | and fire immunities stem. They roll explosives across the    |
 |            | from mid-range, trying to catch Reina in the blast. These're |
 |            | easy to evade if seen coming, generally. They'll self-blast, |
 |            | so avoid close quarters if possible.                         |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Boss       | This class isn't that powerful, and is reserved for one gal  |
 |            | in the game. Although she can attack from long- and short-   |
 |            | -ranges, and is immune to summon rings, she's one of the few |
 |            | classes who can recoup (self-heal). HP, ATN, and SPD = high. |
 |            | Her long-range attack is a poison-inflicting cloud, too.     |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Bruiser    | Like a fighter in regards to diving through doorways when    |
 |            | entering a room, but can attack from near or far. Has a very |
 |            | high attention span, and immune to summon rings.             |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Brute      | While this class was reserved to scantily clad women in the  |
 |            | second Deception game, it's now 'special' and given to just  |
 |            | one guy. It's nothing too special but has both short- and    |
 |            | long-range capabilities. Immune to summon ring's siren song. |
 |            | His long-range attack is a BOMB, though...yikes.             |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Darkwitch  | These femmes can damage Reina from anywhere in the room if   |
 |            | she's there, and darkens her field of vision (like Oil) to   |
 |            | make her stumble around in a fog. They can attack from near  |
 |            | or far, and are immune to flash and summon rings.            |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Elites     | Like a soldier, but with better stats. No special abilities! |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Fighter    | These brawlers excel at close-range fighting, and have a     |
 |            | tendency to dive through doorways when entering rooms. This  |
 |            | will avoid obvious traps in front of the doors, but they'll  |
 |            | all land the same distance inside, so plan around that!      |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Flameman   | These heavily armored enemies are immune to fire, blasts,    |
 |            | cold, and arrow attacks. They're quite powerful up-close and |
 |            | even moreso when shooting a fire projectile from the shield. |
 |            | Due to their high health, blunt force is the best option...  |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Flame User | Like Pyromaniacs in Deception II, these fatties can blow hot |
 |            | streams of flame in Reina's direction (projectile). They've  |
 |            | got high HP but no defense and horrible attention/speed. He  |
 |            | is immune to fire and explosions, expectedly.                |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Footman    | Similar to a Bruiser but with a thru-doorway jump traded for |
 |            | a (lame) immunity to flash, there's not much worth noting on |
 |            | this class which, actually, is seen very little in the game. |
 |            | Can evade springfloors.                                      |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Giga-Arm   | This bulky man has the highest attack power (150) out of any |
 |            | enemy in the game, save Gandolph the Hellknight. His punches |
 |            | are close-range only, and he's slow, so as long as Reina is  |
 |            | at a distance, he should be no threat. However, he'll glow   |
 |            | red upon damage and moves faster than normal, so watch it!   |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Goliath    | These hulking hammer-wielders can shake the ground with the  |
 |            | weapon, temporarily stopping Reina's movement while partners |
 |            | move in for the kill. At close-range, they can grab a target |
 |            | and beat 'em up a bit. HP is high, speed is low; immune to   |
 |            | walls.                                                       |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Hellknight | The most powerful generic enemy in the game, these scythe-   |
 |            | -wielding dervishes have extremely high close-range attack   |
 |            | strength (90+) and high HP. When near Reina, they will do a  |
 |            | quick dash-n'-slash that will take roughtly one-fourth her   |
 |            | health off, then attack again when she's down! Additionally, |
 |            | they're invincible after damage (self), immune to summon     |
 |            | rings, and teleport to a fixed point when entering a room    |
 |            | (rather than entering through doorway). Very formidable. One |
 |            | last thing is that rocks that fall straight down on these    |
 |            | guys are hoisted up and shrugged off, although ones that're  |
 |            | frontal blows aren't avoided.                                |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Hunter     | This class carries a crossbow and can attack from both near  |
 |            | and far; but, its strength in both types is often lacking.   |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | King       | Reserved for only one enemy in the game, it's possible to    |
 |            | miss fighting him completely. His HP is high and he can hit  |
 |            | from both long/short-range, but has mediocre stats besides.  |
 |            | He can recoup his own physical strength, however.            |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Knight     | These men carry poleaxes generally, and set themselves apart |
 |            | by having a lunging attack at close-range, which is harder   |
 |            | to avoid (similar to fighters' flying kick).                 |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Lady Guard | Reserved for one lady in the game, she is basically a better |
 |            | version of an Amazoness, with better stats all-around. Has   |
 |            | no immunities, but has a ninja-like jumping ability.         |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Magnetman  | This weird floating man is magnet-immune and leaps down      |
 |            | staircases. In addition, he can spin around and attract his  |
 |            | prey like a magnet, unrelenting until Reina is close enough. |
 |            | His stats, save HP, are pretty standard/mediocre.            |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Master     | Basically a Mercenary with better stats, same immunities.    |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Mercenary  | These sword-wielding thugs are very powerful, and like most  |
 |            | top classes, both long- and short-range attacks. They're     |
 |            | immune to wall traps.                                        |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Miner      | These gasmask-wearing females have bombs with semi-homing    |
 |            | abilities, and are immune to flame and blasts. When they're  |
 |            | low on health, if Reina is near, they'll commit suicide and  |
 |            | try to catch her in the blast. Annoying enemies...           |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Ninja      | These quick-footed femmes have wolverine-claw gauntlets and  |
 |            | can jump around to Reina's position if they're in the same   |
 |            | room. At long-range, they can throw three knives in a fan    |
 |            | formation. Immune to spring floor traps.                     |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Queen      | Basically a female healer with Sage-like long-range powers   |
 |            | and a Swordsman's immunities (Anger, Summon Rings). She can  |
 |            | recoup her health which makes her annoying, and the warping  |
 |            | behind Reina is even more annoying. Basically...annoying!    |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Ranger     | Like a hunter, except uses a boomerang instead of crossbow.  |
 |            | Can attack from near or far, and will often jump down (over  |
 |            | railings, etc.) to Reina's position if it's shorter. Also    |
 |            | can evade spring floor traps, or at least recover quicker.   |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Sage       | These mages are on an attack level comparable to Hellknights |
 |            | and show it off with explosive projectiles. They can really  |
 |            | do a number on Reina with a clear sight, even w/o backup. In |
 |            | addition, they're immune to magnets & summon rings; and, can |
 |            | teleport behind their prey when damaged. Spooky!             |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Shadow     | These ninja-esque foes have low HP but great speed. Their    |
 |            | special abilities are stabbing Reina's shadows to numb her,  |
 |            | and evading spring-floor traps.                              |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Slasher    | This swordsman has mid-ranged attack powers at both long and |
 |            | far lengths, and can recoup health if left alone. Electrical |
 |            | effects and walls bounce off these guys.                     |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Soldier    | Generic, plodding, no special skills...that about sums up    |
 |            | this class. They're close-range fighters, so keeping one's   |
 |            | distance is the best course of action.                       |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Sorcerer   | These wizards are often equally adept at fighting close-up & |
 |            | long-range, which isn't saying much but does set them apart  |
 |            | in the early going. Their magic is projectile in nature, and |
 |            | the class may have immunities to electricity.                |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Swordsman  | This katana-swinger excels at close-range fighting, and will |
 |            | run towards its target, doing a dash-n'-slash attack. This   |
 |            | class's attention is max (255) and the highest in the game,  |
 |            | which is why he's immune to anger and summon rings.          |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Thief      | These weaklings can only fight at close-range, but "make up" |
 |            | for it by having high speed and decent attention spans. They |
 |            | can also evade spring floor traps.                           |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Titan      | These behemoths are like Goliaths, except they do more flak  |
 |            | and have better HP. They can use their hammers to stop Reina |
 |            | temporarily, so beware their cohorts. Immune to wall types.  |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Torturer   | Slow, but has a combo attack (only redeeming quality)        |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Villagegal | Female version of worst type in game, having no skills. Aww! |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Villageman | Male version of worst enemy in the game; has no skills. Aww! |
 |------------+--------------------------------------------------------------|
 | Whitemagic | These healer women can heal themselves and other allies, as  |
 |            | well as having an immunity to "cold" things. They'll quickly |
 |            | erase Reina's damage, so prioritize them as the 1st targets! |
 |            | Sometimes they flee the room in lieu of having no stronger   |
 |            | allies to back 'em up.                                       |

 Rock types are high-damage ceiling traps. If dropped on solid ground they will
 go nowhere (or bounce repeatedly, as in the Bound Rock's case), but will roll
 downwards if dropped on an incline. Some rocks have peculiar traits that let
 them bounce back up inclines if they hit an obstacle at the bottom, such as
 the Iron and Bound Rocks. Another characteristic of these traps are their
 rather high load times which, although not of vacuum floor proportions, do
 lend a bit of unwieldiness to them, at least in novice hands. Other specific,
 non-obvious traits:

 • Flare Rock ---> can explode when in contact with a human
 • Snow Ball ----> sucks target into ball (upon contact) until it rolls to stop
 • Bound Rock ---> has high reflecting capabilities (bounce up stairways)
 • Iron Ball ----> has high reflecting capabilities (bounce up stairways)
 • Vampire Rock -> heroine recoups health according to damage inflicted
 • Stealth Rock -> cannot be evaded (invisible to enemy eyes)

 Pendulum types are made for knocking enemies in a set direction, as they can
 easily overlap a ground target to avoid the can't-set-on-same-block rule.
 Once set in motion, they will move over a fixed spot with regard to the # of
 swings they have (1 swing = 1 back-and-forth motion). But, they can screw up
 a combo as well if triggered too early; if you tried to make a pendulum hit
 right as a foe stood upright but accidentally hit him on the back-swing, he
 would fly in the opposite desired direction! Other peculiarities of this type:
 
 • Fire Hammer --> Can explode upon contact
 • Snow Cradle --> Captured foe can be detached in direction opposite trap pts.
 • Mega Yo-Yo ---> Hit foes in targeted spaces will be launched airborne
 • Poison Blade -> Guillotine drops once and poisons target upon hit [8-20 sec]
 • Mega Buzzsaw -> Can pierce targets, but not pin to wall like wall buzzsaw
 • Evil Kick ----> Target flies until wall/obstacle's hit; Nullifies foe DEF
 • Slave Hammer -> Pressing Triangle can detach mace-head to score a 2nd hit

 These low-damage, high-arkrate ceiling traps are known for having low charge
 times. When used in a combo, they make the target slowly stumble in the
 direction they were facing, making an easy way to string combos while waiting
 for others to recharge.

 • Blitz Vase --> Can inflict paralysis for a short time
 • Bomb Vase ---> Can blow up and throw target 2 panels in set direction
 • Freeze Vase -> Can restrain target in ice for short time
 • Basin -------> Inflicts 'anger' on target if susceptible [8-20s]
 • Oil Vase ----> Inflicts 'Oil' on foe (6-9s); floor becomes oily if non-hit
 • Genocide Eye > Ignores enemy DEF
 • Slave Mask --> Enemies with under 50% HP can be controlled (hold Triangle)

 Wall types are typically low-cost and -charge, and don't do much damage --
 but they're essential in building larger combos. All walls have a set number
 of tiles they extend, and some will throw enemies further upon contact. Some
 specifics in this field:

 • Thunder Wall -> Electrifies target
 • Heat Breath --> Ignores enemy DEF
 • Cold Breath --> After throwing enemy back, s/he freezes upon landing
 • Upper Wall ---> Upon hit, enemy flies diagonally and hits ceiling, floor
 • Vampire Wall -> Ignores enemy DEF, Reina recoups HP as wall inflicts damage
 • Expander -----> Infinite push; extends until it hits enemy or solid obstacle
 • Evil Kick ----> When enemy is hit, they go in direction until obstacle's hit
 • Hunter Blade -> Can be steered when Square, and can pierce enemies

 Magnet walls, typically, are for just extending combos, although since they
 have little damage and mediocre load times, they're one of the categories
 that are rather expendible (I didn't use one when writing the guide or even
 Expert Mode, for reference). They're not completely useless, however, as
 they can trap enemies who have certain resistances to springfloors, etc.
 One thing to remember for magnets is that if you try to trigger then with an
 enemy right in front, the trap still has to drop down and activate; be sure
 to preempt an enemy's arrival a bit and take advantage of the suction length.
 Other things of note:

 • Spark Magnet -> Electrifies target
 • Blast Magnet -> Explosion sends victim forward  [2 tiles] in a 2-hitter
 • Cold Magnet --> Sucks enemies in and freezes them [Restrain: 3~4s]
 • Anti Magnet --> Repels enemies from wall instead of sucking them in
 • Float Magnet -> Enemies float in midair for set amount of time
 • Berserker ----> Inflicts 'anger' on enemies
 • Warp Hole ----> Enemies within range are instantly warped against wall
 • Call of Hell -> Multi-hit, ignores enemy DEF
 • Slave Magnet -> Damages upon contact; pressing Square electricutes enemies

 Wall projectiles have many uses, and are known for having many peculiar
 properties and multi-hit functions (although accordingly, arkrates decline).
 One thing about these traps is they often miss if the enemy is not dead-set
 in the tile's middle, or if they're lying on their stomach/back. However,
 some will drop in altitude or roll on the ground, which gives a lot of
 versatility to these things. However, some enemies end up immune to just
 about all projectiles on this end... Trap-specific junk:

 • Volt Javelin -> Pierces & electricutes enemy
 • Fireball -----> Can contour to drops in altitude, explodes on contact
 • Cold Arrow ---> Freezes enemy where they stand [3~8 seconds]
 • Buzzsaw ------> Hit enemies fly until hitting a wall/obstacle
 • Rising Ball --> Upon hit, enemy rockets into ceiling (can be a 2-hitter)
 • Flash Arrow --> Pierces, blinds victims [4-10 seconds]
 • Chain Needle -> Multi-hit (farther away enemy is, the more # of hits miss)
 • Hell Laser ---> Ignores enemy DEF
 • Rolling Bomb -> L/R-controllable with Square; explosion has 1-block radius

 Springfloor types are designed to jockey enemies around the field, such as
 at initial traps or just to setup a good combo. Many agile enemies, such as
 fighters and ninja, are immune to all types of these...excep the ingenious
 Foot Cutter, which no one in the entire game can avoid. This is helpful in
 Expert Mode where the player is running down a clock. Besides that, some
 of the traps have special properties, like so:

 • Ice Blizzard -> After being thrown, enemy freezes where s/he lands
 • Smash Floor --> Throws enemy at ceiling, then falls down on same tile
 • Foot Cutter --> Inflicts slow [8~20sec]; no enemy can evade this trap!!!!!!
 • Catapult -----> Can throw enemy until it hits wall/obstacle (at best)
 • Evil Upper ---> Flings enemy upwards, diagonally; ignores enemy DEF
 • Slide Floor --> If HP<50%, enemy can be steered when X-button is depressed

 Vacuum floors are meant to detain the enemy, and are only good for starting
 combos, not ending them -- they just have horrible charge times, some of
 the highest in the game. Enemies who are immune to springfloors are usually
 not to vacuums however, although Sages are the exception. Other things of
 note:

 • Blast Vacuum -> Sucked-in enemies are blown away in a 2-hitter [FORCE: 2]
 • Cold Vacuum --> Blown-away enemy freezes upon landing [RESTRAIN: 3-4 sec]
 • Anti Vacuum --> Keeps enemies at a set distance from center block
 • Float Vacuum -> Enemies within radius float in midair for duration
 • Panic Vacuum -> Enemies panic and flee set distance [CHANGE: 8-20 seconds]
 • Graviton -----> Enemies in radius are pressed down on tile by gravity
 • Hell Vacuum --> Ignores enemy DEF, multi-hit
 • Slave Vacuum -> Pressing x-button will electricute enemies caught in vacuum

 Bomb types have mediocre charge times but aren't too shabby in the damage
 department, and can be used for combos in lieu of other traps. However, the
 thing that goes horribly wrong is that enemies can run diagonally at blast
 radii and things easily go awry, since they don't always fly in set directions
 like springfloors. Other things of interest:

 • Spark Rod --> Other electric traps will shoot energy to this one
 • Hellfire ---> Shoots enemies towards ceiling within radius
 • Cold Blast -> Freeze enemies on top, blasts those in radius [RSTRN: 4-7]
 • Flash Bomb -> Blinds enemies within radius
 • Quake Bomb -> Strands enemies within range with quake [EFFECT: 4-5 seconds]
 • Hell Judge -> 2-hitter, ignores enemy defense
 • Slave Bomb -> Press X-button 2nd time to detonate bomb manually

 Beartrap types are meant to restrain the player and deal a little damage while
 doin' it, although not many excel at that latter point. Traps of this nature
 are generally cheap and the top-shelf types have better arkrates than most
 other traps. One bad thing about these traps is that hitting an enemy while
 he's encased inside does not automatically reset the trap, unlike, say, a
 vase which immediately starts recharging when broken. Other things to note:

 • Blast Claw --> 2-hitter
 • Cold Claw ---> Clasped enemy is frozen to be detained longer
 • Lift Claw ---> Enemy is hung in midair from ceiling.
 • Oil Claw ----> Inflicts oil on enemy [CHANGE: 6-9 seconds]
 • Magic Sac ---> Envelops enemy entirely; Reina can push them around area
 • Evil Claw ---> Ignores enemy DEF

 Like its predecessors, the choices made in the game will affect the ending
 obtained, which in turn affects which special traps are earned. Mission 14 and
 23a/b are the main missions to pay attention to. Beating any ending earns a
 bonus 50000 Dreak, so I won't include that below; just remember it!

 ENDING #1: Beat Mission #14 and don't go with Cecilia, then at Mission #23a,
            choose to go back in time for the final battle. Defeat all enemies
            to finish the game. [OBTAIN: Hell Emblem]

 ENDING #2: Beat Mission #14 and don't go with Cecilia, then at Mission #23a,
            choose to go back in time for the final battle. Die in battle.
            [OBTAIN: Killer Top]

 ENDING #3: Beat Mission #14 and don't go with Cecilia, then at Mission #23a,
            choose to use the stones toward Albert's longevity. [OBTAIN:
            Barracuda or Banana Peel]

 ENDING #4: Beat Mission #14 and accompany Cecilia, then finish the game like
            normal. [OBTAIN: Teleporter or Delta Horse or Banana Peel]

 You'll notice that some endings have multiple traps that may be obtained on
 the final battle screen. There seems to be a general order for these, with
 ones like the Barracuda and Teleporter getting first dibs, and subsequent
 playthroughs getting the rest. Only one trap is obtained per playthrough.

EXPERT MODE                                                             [XPMD]

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Expert Mode is a 100-stage high-level mission course that's available right
 from the beginning. There are various parameters that will test the player's
 abilities, such as time limits and certain restrictions, so it's a good way
 to blow some steam after going through the campaign a few times.

 After picking a stage, Reina can pick which traps she wants to use. Because
 traps aren't available for creation until a few missions into campaign, and
 because made traps _do_ carry over from cleared campaigns, it's best to go
 through with a nice repertoire culled from campaign victories. THE PLAYER
 CANNOT MAKE TRAPS WHILE IN THIS MODE, SO ONE MUST GO TO CAMPAIGN TO DO SO.
 Saving is possible before each mission, and after each successfully cleared
 mission.

 Missions come in packs of 10, and the player can play them in any order s/he
 likes. However, to gain the next set of ten, all of the previous must first
 be completed satisfactorily.

REWARDS
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 Completing all (100) missions in this mode earns the following:

 • 200,000 Ark
 • Zero Ring, which gives traps an charge rate of 0 (cost: 100,000/per)
 • 

 ============================================================================

#01: Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Soldier (Cloud)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:30

 In this simplistic design of a room, there's only one enemy (Cloud) who is a
 regular soldier. Any combination imaginable should be able to whoop up on him,
 so pay attention to the running ticker in the upper-right corner. He's got
 about 100 HP overall, so it's useful to use falling rocks and such in a heavy
 convergence.

#02: Make 4+ Combo Hits!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Soldier (Cloud)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 Since the training chamber has no initial devices, the player will have to
 rough it. Multi-hit traps like the Chain Needle work well on this end, as do
 segmenting/controlling traps like the Slave Hammer. My method was this:

 Slave Claw -> Slave Hammer (swing) -> Wall Trap -> Slave Hammer (detach)

 In this combo, the Slave Claw picks up the victim and swings the hammer,
 ejecting them at the set distance; the wall trap moves to meet them, pushing
 them back towards the slave hammer, whose mace-ball detaches and scores the
 fourth hit. That's the long way around, of course -- remember that you can
 put a wall trap on the chamber door, unlike in campaign!

#03: Make 3 Core Hits on Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Hunter (Bion)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:30

 How do you get a 'core hit'? Hit the target's body square on. This is very
 easy to do with quick projectiles, like the aforementioned 'Chain Needle'.
 In fact, its base form shoots three almost simultaneous bolts which can
 fulfill this objective quickly. Using lunky rocks and whatever is just too
 slow here.

#04: Earn More than 500 Ark!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Hunter (Bion)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 Ark is earned by having large combos that deal large damage, not to mention
 bonuses for multi-hit, core hits, midair hits, etc. So, I suggest doing
 something like: Slave Claw -> Slave Hammer -> Wall -> Slave Hammer (Detach),
 as seen in Mission #02. Bion is invincible for this portion, but since he's
 a long-range fighter, it can be hard to lure him into trap position without
 a Summon Ring.

 Another combo I did was simply: (Summon Ring) Foot Cutter -> Chain Needle ->
 Flies into moving Slave Hammer -> Slave Hammer Detach on next motion toward.
 Remember that the ark gained has to be cumulative, not all at once.

#05: Drive the Enemy to the Doorway!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Soldier (Cloud)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 This seems like it would be a cinch, but Cloud won't leave the top of the
 stairs unless by force. Use your preferred method (pendulum, explosion, etc.)
 to knock him over the balcony, then get him to the doorway by force. I
 suggest using any spring floor with a summon ring. If you can't combo the
 fall of the railing, Cloud will just try to go back upstairs!

#06: Avoid All Damages & Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Hunter (Bion)
 CASTLE   - Hades Jail
 CHAMBER  - Dungeon, Etc.
 TIME LMT - 0:30

 This battle takes place in the NE region of Castle Hades, and isn't that
 hard of a battle in theory. Just remember to double-tap L1/R1 to dive out
 of the hunter's crossbow bolts' way, and use summon rings to lead the sap
 around. In fact, you may notice that Bion runs into the execution room and
 Reina can simply press the hallway trigger and drop the spiked ceiling on
 him...what a maroon!

#07: Hit with Room Devices More Than 3 Times!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Soldier
 CASTLE   - Factory
 CHAMBER  - Work Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 This isn't that hard, actually. A floor trap (summon ringed) right near the
 incincerator can make Cloud be thrown in, as well as hitting the pan on top
 of the thing in a fun, surprise twofer! After that, just make him hit any
 other thing, such as the nearby gears. Really simple when you know about the
 pan/furnace trick.

#08: Finish with Ceil Spear!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Hunter (Bion)
 CASTLE   - Factory
 CHAMBER  - Work Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 Have something ready to trigger the ceiling spear's switch (vase, projectile)
 and lure the doofus right underneath after scoring one GOOD hit. The ceiling
 spear won't kill him outright, so take about one-third his health off before
 dropping the ball...err, spikes on him. The ceiling spear can only be used
 once before it breaks, so obviously it can't be the leadoff attack. Naturally
 it helps to have a floor trap aimed at the bloody grate 'neath the spikes,
 using a summon function to draw the runaround in.

#09: Make Combo Hit Including 2+ Room Devices!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Soldier (Cloud)
 CASTLE   - Factory
 CHAMBER  - Warehouse
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 The easiest way to do this is comboing with the tumble-prop and oil barrel
 aligned with the stairs. Trigger the tumbleprop switch (ceiling objects like
 rocks will do this w/o affecting trap) to make it hit the guy, then use a
 wall to push the barrel in motion, down the stairs to hit him. It may take a
 few times to get it right, but if needed, it can be done vice versa as well.
 Simply align Cloud with the barrel's path, put his back to the stairs, and
 stay near the switch to trigger it manually afterward (or with object if
 using Reina as real bait).

#10: Make Combo Hit with Damage 100+
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Hunter (Bion)
 CASTLE   - Factory
 CHAMBER  - Warehouse
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 The "oil barrel down the stairs and comboing with the tumble-prop" strategy
 from Mission #9 works here as well, but since the tumbleprop does 70 damage
 to the hunter alone, prefacing it with, say, a high-powered pendulum trap
 on the stairs will work as well. Don't really have to work hard for this one,
 really.

#11: Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Knight (Garnier)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Bright Courtyard
 TIME LMT - 0:30

 It's just beating up the poor lad, so harnessing the environmental traps
 (wall spear, dropping a bridge on his noggin, etc.) are the best ways to
 go. I think the easiest is forcing Garnier into a wall spear, then using a
 rolling bomb to put him outta his misery.

#12: Make 5+ Combo Hits!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Ranger (Marie)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Church
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 A Chain Needle with two orbs will have five hits automatically, so I suggest
 just using that to avoid the hassle. Create one by merging an Arrow Slit with
 a Chaos Emblem (6550 Dreak). Just remember that the Chain Needle only combos
 if it's at a certain close range; using it to snipe someone on the other side
 of the map ain't gonna cut it here.

#13: Make Midair Hit!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Knight (Garnier)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Church
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 The easiest way to make a midair hit that I can think of is knocking throwing
 someone (via pendulum or spring floor) at a ready wall trap -- easy peasy.

#14: Earn More Than Ark 3000!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Knight (Garnier)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Doorway
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 This is the foyer to Castle Agony. All of the environmental traps here give
 1.5-1.8x ark bonuses, so they must be used to get this. A 3000+ Ark combo
 is basically a 5-hit combo with two of the room's traps, but the total is
 cumulative, so it can be two 1500-Ark traps if y'want. Here's my choice:

 1) Stall enemy on MIDDLE of stairs, then trigger slide stairs
 2) Have spring floor at stair-bottom (2-tile throw) -> underneath chandelier
 3) Reina must run all the way down slide stairs and trigger chandelier
 4) Have a bomb/pendulum ready to topple a pillar on the fallen enemy
 5) Have a bomb/pendulum ready to topple the other pillar on the fallen enemy

 Note, a summon ring for the spring floor doesn't matter too much. In fact,
 you can use a quick-loading vase [etc.] to trigger the chandelier trap, and
 then still have time to create a new pendulum to topple the final pillar.
 A COMBO IS NOT OVER UNTIL THE ENEMY STANDS UP, and luckily, pillars make the
 enemy have a long wait time. For reference, the above combo gave me 3158 ark.

#15: Drive the Enemy to the Top of the Stairs!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Knight (Garnier)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Cliff Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 Like a previous mission, the enemy here is hellbent on getting to the bottom
 and, if knocked higher, immediately starts trying to get lower. There are a
 few trap types that help during this: spring floors, pendulums, and any
 push walls (like the Upper) that violently throw in a direction. Traps like
 a 4-orb Spring Floor have a 9-tile throw, which are incredibly good for this
 mission. Garnier will quit trying to descend if he can hit Reina, so really
 use her as bait until the summon-ring traps load. The mission ends if Garnier
 is thrown to the platform in front of the upper door.

#16: Avoid All Damages & Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Ranger (Marie)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Cliff Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 Rangers can attack close-up and throw boomerangs in a straight line, so this
 isn't that vexing. The Cliff Chamber is composed of one huge staircase along
 the wall, so set some traps as the level starts and use the Launcher to get
 out of the foe's way. She has about 100 HP.

#17: Make Combo Hit Including 2 Cerberuses!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Knight (Garnier)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Agony Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 The Cerberuses are switch-operated statues that dump lava on the enemy, but
 only one square in one direction; also, they aren't lined up either. So, to
 do this easiest, I suggest making:

 - Spring Floor (summon ring) that throws six tiles (like 1-orb Smash Floor)
 - Wall Trap that pushes exactly three tiles

 Put the spring floor in front of the cerberus nearest the door, aiming at
 the opposite wall. The Wall Trap should go against the wall, its aim set on
 the 2nd cerberus' switch. This makes the hardest part simply triggering the
 first switch (manually is better) and making sure the statue lands a hit
 before Garnier is tossed. Everything is smooth from then on.

#18: Finish with Punisher!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Ranger (Marie)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Agony Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 'The Punisher' is that delayed sword drop against one wall, and will do 70
 damage to Marie, which is over 2/3rd her health. I simply suggest luring her
 to the target area and using a Foot Cutter (summon ring), then dropping the
 Punisher on her first. Since Foot Cutters inflict Slow, her recovery/fleeing
 is worse and Reina can simply drop the Punisher on her again -- ha!

#19: Make Combo Hit Including 2+ Room Devices!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Ranger (Marie)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Prison Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 The easiest two devices to use are probably the lumber saw and thorny ball.
 Point a summon ring spring floor at the lumber saw side closest to the stair,
 then have a push wall (3-tile move) ready to shove Marie underneath the
 Thorny Ball. Can you envision it? The hard part is that the lumber saw will
 throw Marie back two tiles, so the push wall has to land a midair hit to work
 correctly.

#20: Make Combo Hit with Damage 200+!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Ranger (Marie)
 CASTLE   - Castle Agony
 CHAMBER  - Prison Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 Here's my setup for this.

 1) Put summon-ring spring floor underneath thorny ball, pointing at wall by
    lumber saw.

 2) Put damaging push wall right by lumber saw, pointing in direction step #1
    will throw Marie (head-on). Make sure it has a 3-tile extension, which'll
    push the victim back underneath the thorny ball.

 3) Put a damaging falling rock right where Marie will land.

 Now, the combo will start with Marie being led under the thorny ball and
 being hit -- this is required. After being hit, she'll be thrown to the wall
 and underneath the falling rock, which will do its huge damage (95 is good).
 When it hits, trigger the push wall and shove it back underneath the thorny
 ball, which falls to end the combo. I got 236 damage out of this with a few
 4-orb types, so try to match it. It's important that the rock and wall don't
 have summon rings -- the delays only make it harder here.

#21: Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Thief (Saki)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - White Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 Saki was actually a generic enemy from Deception II, also! Thieves tend to
 run around a lot, so abuse the summon rings and drop a pillar on her -- not
 too hard. She has about 150 HP.

#22: Make 6+ Combo Hits!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Thief (Saki)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - White Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 Use a Chain Needle trap with 3-4 orbs in it. Chain Needles won't combo unless
 the enemy is within 1-2 panels, however...use a summon ring, etc.

#23: Hit with Room Devices More than 3 Times!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Thief (Saki)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Yellow Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 This is the area with minecarts, and you'll notice that one can push a foe
 into a wall spear trap -- there's the twofer. I suggest doing that one first,
 then using a spring floor to throw Saki into the incinerator. Saki appears to
 be immune to summon rings, but this isn't so -- she just needs to be really
 close for them to work!

#24: Earn More than Ark 5000!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Sorcerer (Walser)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Yellow Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:30

 This one can be harder, so here's how I did it.

 STEP 1) Set Foot Cutter (3-panel throw) in front of wall spear
 STEP 2) Put Slave Hammer pointing AWAY from wall spear, one panel away
 STEP 3) Put Wall type against mine cart pointed at wall spear

 I've managed to do a single string of combos for 6000 Ark here.

 1) Lure enemy to foot cutter. It doesn't matter if wall spear hits, really.
 2) Trigger slave hammer & mine cart around same time. SH must hit though!
 3) Mine cart hits and pushes enemy toward walls pear
 4) DETACH Slave Hammer's ball so it swings toward wall spear, hits sorcerer

 This should create a 7-link trap that beats the crap outta this challenge.
 Note that the next-lowest chain type will give a little over 4000 Ark, so
 that's possible too if you can make a quickie 3- to 4-hit combo.

#25: Drive the Enemy to the Top of Bridge!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Thief (Saki)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Blue Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 Like its forebears, Saki will not move around besides a set location at the
 bottom; and, if knocked out of that zone, will try to go back. Baiting the
 enemy into attacking will stop them from proceeding toward the starting
 point, however. Saki is immune to spring floors and summon rings (which only
 work if she's forced over them), but if she's knocked down, they can be used,
 so...

 1) Set a wall (Smash Wall?) that has a huge throw radius
 2) Put a spring floor trap where Saki is to land, on either side
 3) Where Saki lands from spring floor trap, have a ceiling trap ready to
    knock closer to bridge
 4) Reuse wall trap to knock onto bridge

 The trick is to keep her in motion at all times if possible, and to use Reina
 as attack bait to stall for time. The Evil Shoot trap works very well here.
 You'll notice that Saki follows a set path back down to the starting point,
 such as always going on one side of the middle stairway, etc. If you know
 this, it's easier to plan ahead, so try playing a few times with various
 combinations. [The trick is to reuse the oldest type of trap.]

#26: Avoid all Damages & Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Sorcerer (Walser)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Blue Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 There are a million and one ways to do this, but my favorite involves the
 waterwheel combos. Toss anyone onto the waterwheel, and whatever side they
 come out of, have a push wall or pendulum waiting to knock them back in.
 Walser will actually pause in the water near his starting point, which just
 happens to be aligned with the waterwheel -- use a floor trap to set the
 "wheel" in motion, tee-hee!

#27: Make Combo Including 2+ Midair Hits!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Thief (Saki)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Red Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 This is more commonly referred to as the "guillotine chamber" next-door to
 the waterwheel area. I suppose the easiest way to make a midair hit is to:

 1) Put a pendulum type pointing down a stairway
 2) At the wall corner, put a push wall pointing towards stairway
 3) Put a spring floor pointing at push wall

 Now, when Saki is hit by the pendulum, hit her with the spring floor to land
 the 1st midair hit; as she falls back down, use the push wall to land the 2nd.
 Naturally summon rings on any portions will complicate this. Heck, if you use
 a Smash Wall and miss the first midair hit, it's possible to shoot the target
 back up to the swinging pendulum!

#28: Finish with Death Flame!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Sorcerer (Walser)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Red Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:40
 
 The Death Flame is the small antechamber just north of the guillotine (Red)
 chamber. To trigger it, lure someone inside and flip the switch outside. I
 suggest doing all the damage inside the chamber, since Reina and Walser start
 right by there. A summon ring will probably be necessary to knock him inside,
 though, so you might as well use a Foot Cutter to inflict slow as well. Once
 he's thrown, drop a Slave Rock [etc.] on him and make a beeline for the
 switch, which should hopefully beat him up enough. [If not, just add a wall
 trap to the equation before triggering switch, or re-enter and reuse the
 trap setup.]

#29: Make Combo Hit Including 3+ Room Devices!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Sorcerer (Walser)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Black Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 There are only two black torches, a slide stairs, and pitfall in this room,
 so it's obvious which ones have to be comboed! Here's my solution:

 1) Lure Walser onto slide stairs, and trigger them
 2) Open pitfall so he falls in
 3) Use push wall to roll black torch into pitfall for 3rd hit

 It's rather simple to do. You may want to use a summon ring spring floor to
 make sure Walser is perfectly center on the stairs, though.

#30: Crush the enemy within Ark 200!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Sorcerer (Walser)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Black Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 This means that Reina must kill Walser without breaking 200 Ark, which means
 no combos and very little environmental trap involvement. I suggest using a
 Chain Needle with a damage ring and 4-orbs (25/dmg, 7-hit) and the quickest
 vacuum type you have. Use the vacuum, hit the baddie with the chain needle,
 and repeat about three times. If you're wondering why the Chain Needle is
 important, it's because the multi-hit status gives a .5x multiplier, which
 is way useful in this case. I finished with 195 Ark, and one of the bolts
 may have missed, so it's cuttin' it pretty close, hombre.

#31: Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Slasher (Rymer)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Darkness Worship
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 This chamber is the one with the two spiked, spinning poles ('Mad Pillars')
 and some bonfires. But, I suggest just using a Bound Rock -- remember that
 it skips every other space, unlike normal rocks -- and chaining it with 
 whatever your heart desires. Just make it quick, as these morons can recoup
 health and are immune to blasts.

 Pay attention to what way the Mad Pillars are spinning, because if you want
 to use them in combos, they will shoot the target out at a ninety-degree
 angle from whichever side he was shot from. If you can get this concept
 down, chaining a mad pillar with a heavy-hitting Bound Rock should be easy
 as pie. Or cake, for that matter. He has about 150-170 HP.

#32: Make 7+ Combo Hits!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Slasher (Rymer)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Darkness Worship
 TIME LMT - 0:40

 The Chain Needle won't work here, so we'll have to get creative with the
 looping combos. Here's the easiest one I can think of. It won't get any
 points for originality, but it'll work well 'nough. [Don't use summon rings,
 although Charge Rins are great.]

 1) Put a (1-orb) Crane somewhere against a wall
 2) Use a wall trap that pushes over the lift claw at least two spaces
 3) Use a crappy floor trap to flip target back on lift claw
 4) Repeat, ESPECIALLY WHEN FOE IS ON GROUND to save time

 Leadoff with the Crane, which lifts the target up, still in range of the
 wall, which pushes the target onto the spring floor. Trigger the springfloor
 when the wall retracts, throwing it back onto the Crane which repeats the
 process. It's simple on paper, but has to be executed well enough. Don't
 put too many orbs on the Crane or it'll delay the chain too long and screw
 it up; most of these make-a-combo challenges have short time spans.

 If you use the Crane while the enemy lies incumbent, it only lifts him up so
 much, so that you can hit him with the push wall and speed up the process.
 Remember that this chain is specifically for going the combo, not inflicting
 a bunch of damage in the process! If you want that, try switching out the
 spring floor for a pendulum and the crane for a lift claw.

 [There are many variances of this type of 3-combo, which is basically a
 (bait -> movement -> return to initial position) setup]

 Here's how I did this:

 1) Set up an Extender to shoot from wall to nearest pillar
 2) Pond-side, set up a pendulum type to hit a pillar
 3) Between the pillars, setup a floor trap where you think Romney will land
    after the pillars hit, shooting him underneath the Collapsor ceiling.

 The idea is to hit both pillars at once -- both hit Romney -- and then to
 shoot Romney underneath the Collapsor for three easy hits. The first two
 should be assured, but the collapsor will miss unless Romney is shot under-
 -neath. The spring floor must be where Romney falls, which depends on which
 pillar hits first; this depends on the trap speed and if both traps connect
 simultaneously. The Collapsor _WILL_ hit if Romney is perfectly between the
 pillars, though.

 Finish off by throwing Romney into the pitfall, with a summon-ring spring
 floor, mayhap.

 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin

 TIME LMT - 1:20

 We're going to parlay #33's high-damage combo into a 7000-Ark string, albeit
 with a little tweaking first. I suggest putting a bunch Charge Rings on all
 traps you can here. Here is my "tool kit":

 - Pendulum (3-panel throw)
 - Foot Cutter (3-panel throw (3 orbs))
 - Expander (any orb)
 - Bear Claw (any type but Slave)

 This can be done in reverse, but the collapsor part is hardest so it should
 be last. Remember that when you hit someone in a pitfall, they climb out in
 the OPPOSITE direction. Also, DO NOT stand on any traps yourself or Rymer'll
 _trigger_ them automatically! Totally lame.

 1) Put Expandor behind large pillar
 2) Put spring floor in large pillar's path, pointing at pitfall 2 tiles away
 3) Put Pendulum on other side of pitfall, pointing toward collapsor group

 Lure the enemy onto the spring floor and trigger the big pillar, which should
 hit him and knock him flat right on that floor. Use the spring floor to knock
 him in the pitfall

 4) Put Expander on one side of the pillars (not pond) to knock both over

 Trigger the pendulum a little before Rymer crawls out, hitting him between
 the pillars. Use the Expander to topple the pillars and hit him with one and
 the collapsor. There is time enough after hitting the pillars and from when
 the collapsor hits that the wall trap can be moved to hit him back toward or
 in the pitfall, continuing the chain. However, just hitting him with the
 wall should give 10,000+ Ark and complete the stuff, so I won't bother with
 any additional rigamarole...this level's annoying enough!

 This is simply knocking the inert boulder within the room loose, hitting
 Romney with it. Both Reina and the alchemist start right by it, but he'll
 move away and start walking a certain portion near the corner. Put a push
 wall in position to hit it, then use a Smash Floor to knock him six panels
 into its trajectory.

 Or, if you're completely awesome like me (*wink*) and don't like having to
 custom-fit every trap, you can use your current 6+ Smash Floor type and time
 it perfectly for a midair collision. Hilarious!

 There's a ton of ways to do this, but I prefer to harness the 4-orb Bound
 Rock's immense killing power, and do a little combo off it, such as:

 Spring Floor -> Bound Rock -> Smash Wall -> Fire Breath (Pendulum @ Switch)

 Remember that Romney can heal himself if low on power, so make sure to keep
 the strings going! He has about 150 HP, like most enemies of late.

 INTRUDER - Slasher (Rymer)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Guardian Stairs
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 Probably the most fun room in the ruins, there's plenty of traps to use here.
 However, Big Cerby (the fireplace) doesn't work on slashers, so we'll have to
 get creative with the arkship/guillotine/oil barrels. Here's my quickest
 version, although it has to be followed to the letter trap-wise

 1) In front of the barrel that is normally moved to hit the arkship's switch,
    put an expander -- this will make it roll downstairs.

 2) Put a Foot Cutter (or any other spring floor that throws three spaces)
    in the barrel's trajectory, aiming it at the arkship's laser path.

 3) Where the Foot Cutter will throw the target, put a pendulum (normal type,
    3-panel throw) aiming at the guillotine on the lower level.

 Now, here's how it plays out.

 Lure the enemy into the pendulum's path and score a hit with the barrel. Use
 the foot cutter immediately, as the expander will keep going to hit the
 switch. If all goes right, the victim should land by the pendulum and be
 hit by the laser. Now -- and here's the semi-tricky part -- guess a little
 before he gets up and trigger the pendulum, hitting him to the lower level
 and splicin' him with the guillotine. There's only one try with the pendulum
 so make it count!

 An alternate version would be using the two upper barrels (they count
 individually), then throwing Rymer down into the arkship's laser path and
 hitting him that way. I prefer mine, frankly, as if you miss there's another
 chance to do it!

 [NOTE: Rymer must fall directly in the guillotine's middle or it won't fall,
 just in case you wanted to try other variances.]

 Since we can't do combos, and this guy will heal himself if his health gets
 down far enough, here's what I suggest. Make a small cluster combo, maybe
 one at the foot of a stair, that goes like this:

 1) Spring floor shoots at wall one panel away
 2) Bound Rock in front of wall
 3) Chain Needle pushes enemy back onto spring floor

 I actually managed to do this in 299; if a reader can't for some reason, I
 would suggest downing the dosage and substituting the powerful Bound Rock for
 better, like a Stealth Rock [etc.]

 Use a vacuum/claw to bring an enemy near a wall and hold them, then send 7+
 projectiles into their face with a 4-orb Chain Needle -- which, given how
 often it can be used for quick combos, you should definitely have sitting
 around. Finish off with a ceiling trap, such as a pendulum type. I suggest
 using the Slave Hammer, since it can detach for another hit if the Chain
 Needle doesn't score enough hits (which it won't if it's too far away from
 target).

 Avoiding all damage is up to the player, so I can't help with that. But, for
 the 2-device combo that's required, it _has_ to use the wall spear and the
 detachable bridge since they're the only devices there. I suggest using a
 pendulum to hit the wall spear, then -- because when they're hit by the wall
 spear, they are automatically upright -- using a spring floor underneath to
 toss them below the bridge. Trigger the bridge switch manually or with a
 push wall. [Dropping the bridge with the enemy on it does NOT count toward
 anything.] My way of doing this, since I'm lazy, was:

 1) Foot Cutter -> Wall Spear
 2) Upper Wall -> toward bridge
 3) 2nd Foot Cutter -> under bridge
 4) Pendulum -> trigger bridge switch

 This is a pretty easy combo setup if you look at it correctly -- bring a
 push wall, a pendulum type, and a springfloor with a range of 2.

 1) Lure Garnier between saw and wall, then shove him in with a push wall.
 2) Use the 2-panel springfloor to throw him underneath the thorny ball
 3) As he recovers, use a pendulum type to throw him next to the volt chair
 4) Use the springfloor to throw Garnier into the mercy seat

 This has to be very precise, as Garnier doesn't have a lot of health and if
 you try to do one and then a twofer, it may not work out that well (not to
 mention the thorny ball ain't exactly a speed demon in dropping). And, it
 doesn't help that the saw is very unpredictable in its throw, and that the
 volt chair may not register a hit at the end...ARGH!

 The easiest way to do this is to use the Chain Needle on the statue side,
 while leading her around at close-range. At mid- to long-range she throws
 two annoying boomerangs which, if dodged, can usually ricochet and slap our

 TIME LMT - 1:10

 Back at the mine cart area again, huh? Since we have to finish with the wall
 spear, let's try to use some of the explosive boxes first. One thing to note:
 explosions of these sort throw enemies three panels, and we're aiming to do
 it in a set direction, so it's kinda hard -- precision's required. For the
 springfloors, they'll probably need Charge Rings.

 |           BOX-|¯¯|  |        1) Put 2-panel springfloor on minetrack, facing
 |               |__|  |           explosive box. Push wall is behind minecart.
 |_______________  1   |           
 | CART       3    2  4|-WALL   2) Put pendulum trap rigged to explode box
 |_____________________| SPR.   3) Use springfloor when Saki comes near, and
                                   wait until floor trap can be relocated.
 This time, aim 2-panel springfloor up the slope.

 4) Explode the box, sending Saki onto the minetrack. When ready, spring the
    springfloor. Wait a little while and trigger minecart. During this, put
    a BEAR TRAP type in front of wall spear.

 5) Mine cart will bring Saki to bear trap location. As she gets up, trigger
    it and let the wall spear impale her. Ark earned should be about 5400.

 There are two hard parts about this mission: (1) sometimes Saki isn't thrown
 onto the minetrack straight, so if you're doing a pendulum variance to knock
 her upslope, it'll simply miss unless it's a larger type (2) if a minecart
 hits Saki while she's down or not up "enough," she'll simply fly through it
 and everything's screwed up.

 Incredibly simplistic compared to the last mission. Put a three-panel spring
 floor facing the guillotine (on its platform), and a chain needle on that
 same wall it's by. Lure the sorcerer up there, hit him 3-4 times, then toss
 him under the guillotine. His soul's laid to rest! If there's any problems
 with this setup, it's that the chain needle gradually pushes Walser off the
 springfloor trap, so you may have to plan for a 2-panel throw instead.

 I suggest using a 2-panel Foot Cutter, as the slow status will ensure that
 the guillotine lands a second hit...tee-hee! Note that the 5-hit combo and
 required finish don't have to be in the same combo.

 CASTLE   - Factory
 CHAMBER  - Work Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 There are two good clusters of traps: the lumber saw and falling ceiling,
 and the incinerator and pan on top of it. So how to chain both?

 1) Put a (single) projectile trap on the wall 3 spaces from the lumber saw
 2) Put a bear claw type trap under ceiling spear, aligned with the pillar
 3) Put a pendulum ready to knock over the pillar

 Romney will usually meander and walk right by the saw if Reina runs around,
 but if she stands right at the bottom of the stair and faces him, he'll run
 to and stop right under the ceiling spear. At this point, hit him with the
 projectile and bear claw, then drop the pillar on him as well. While doing
 so, go upstairs and toss the ceiling spear on him as well. During all this:

 4) Set pendulum alongside Romney (who is equidistant from spear and the wall)
 5) Change bear claw to springfloor, pointing at pendulum

 Romney should have enough health left at this point, and stands up on the
 springfloor. Have the pendulum already triggered, and throw him into it,
 which should propel him into the incinerator and into the pan (and maybe
 toss him out the top!) Now that's finishing with style...this one was
 actually tricky...

 If you think it's hard, well...it took me about fifty tries to get it, too!
 Protip: the less fancy the trap, the better. A simple bear trap suffices
 where a cold claw would simply ruin the combo, for instance. I got 16,000+
 Ark this way, so it's definitely worth it! ^_____^

 Salami...err, Slami has the ability to make Reina see darkness. She has apx.
 200 HP and will darken Reina's field of vision, which also makes herself
 vanish from the radar. However, sometimes Reina can avoid this by bumrushing
 the target, who then (usually) flees down the middle. So, given that much
 more fortunate strategy...

          (throw: 3)
 1) Place springfloor equidistant from pillars (i.e. the middle); point at one
 2) At 90-degree angle witch will fall at, place a Bound Rock (haha!)
 3) Place Smash Wall [etc.] so it's in line with Bound Rock

 Now, bumrush the target at the very start (you may want to do this before
 laying traps to see if she's casting darkness) and get behind her, which'll
 drive her down the middle. A three-panel throw will be reciprocated, and
 she should land closer to the wall. Drop the Bound Rock here and try to get
 in a shot with the smash wall. Either way, wherever the darkwitch lands,
 set up a Slave Hammer and stand near to the target, so she uses her physical
 attack and wastes time. Trigger the slave hammer to knock her away, then make
 sure to detach and finish this mission.

 Slami is immune to blasts, by the way, which is why we can't bomb ourselves
 out of this one!

 TIME LMT - 5:00

 When it says all chambers, it means one is a mandatory fight in each, and
 Reina can't leave until each is defeated. All of the rooms are ones we've
 had to toil and do combos [etc.] in, so building those combos is the key to
 doing this. Or, you can use a Bound Rock and often kill the poor saps without
 much effort. I'll break it down, though...

 ROOM #1: The Chandelier Room. Make slide stairs while charging a Bound Rock
          at the bottom, which will squish the hunter without much effort.

 ROOM #2: The Bridge Courtyard. Put a bear trap at the bottom of some stairs
          (the flat part, that is) and shoot a few Rolling Bombs, which should
          knock her up the stairs a bit. Have a Slave Hammer ready, then do
          a stylish finish with the detach. Heal up if needed

 ROOM #3: Put a springboard 'tween the saw and wall, shooting it to a point
          where a Bound Rock can be dropped on the target. Quickly put a
          Slave Hammer where Rymer falls, then detach and put him to bed.

 ROOM #4: Walser is a little harder than normal because he moves around so
          dang much. Put a vacuum in-between the two mad pillars and have a
          slave hammer lording over it, hitting it to the wall. I usually have
          a rolling bomb active up the middle, as the vacuum will suck that in
          as well next time it's used.

 ROOM #5: I suggest putting a pendulum type (I go with the lovable Slave
          Hammer like usual) over part of the stairway, having a rolling bomb
          behind it, and a Foot Cutter pointing upslope. Use the Foot Cutter
          first, then trigger the Slave Hammer; on the second swing-to, when
          it's time to detach, fire the rolling bomb as well and if the first
          weapon doesn't kill her, the blast certainly will.

 ROOM #6: This is the debut of Seneca the Ninja! Remember that these types
          evade spring traps, so try to clamp her feet in front of a pillar
          and knock it over, chaining it with a pendulum type. Seneca has the
          ability to teleport (what the heck?) when damaged, just like Sages.
          She has about 250 HP to take off, so don't waste too much time here!
 
 Well, hope y'had fun with that course. Might've been more fun if it was all
 six in one room or something, but what can we do?

 There's probably a million ways to do this, but the best way is to build a
 combo where the Titan gets stuck on the pendulumax. Since he won't willingly
 go in front of it, he'll always go around its periphery. Just shoot a rolling
 bomb at him repeatedly and he'll always stay within range, or use a floor
 vacuum to suck him into the pendulumax's path.

 A 'trap startup button' is manually activating a trap, and that won't work

 1) Automated spring floor (2-panel) in middle of room, aiming at iron maiden
 2) Automated pendulum between casket and springfloor, aiming at a wall
 3) Automated Rising Ball, aiming at pendulum

 However, timing is the key here. Set the push wall and Rising Ball first,
 but don't lay the pendulum until Aias has been hit by the Rising Ball and is
 in the air. This should let it hit him just as he gets up, getting a fifth
 hit!

 There are four devices: two Rotagears, a Chandelier, and an Iron Gate. The
 easiest ones to do are the rotagears, which are in the corners of the room.
 The hub of this mission will be the red carpet in front of the iron gate,
 from which all traps can be sprung. First things first, put a Smash Floor
 in front of the gate and point it toward the Rotagear, so that it just barely
 hits the tile where it's spinning. Lure Elektra onto this twice to get them
 out of the way quickly and quietly.

 For the Chandelier and Iron Gate, it's also easy. On the middle of the carpet
 put a Rising Floor, then an Extender pointing towards it so that Elektra will
 be pushed underneath the gate when she becomes groundborne again. The first
 time I did this mission, I tried to use the stairs and push wall combinations
 but what's listed above is truly the simplest way to go about it. Believe!

 No ceiling traps can be used in this mission due to the spiked ceiling, and
 remember that if you try to get a chain with the same traps, they won't
 contribute to the combo ark! Here's my order if you want it, although it's
 pretty obvious that it'll be a wall-floor-wall pattern throughout.

 1) Smash Floor ->
 2) Upper Wall -> Aias lands back on Foot Cutter's spot ->
 3) Rising Floor ->
 4) Rising Ball ->
 5) Foot Cutter ->
 6) Vampire Wall ->

 Remember that the order you do the combo in MATTERS in gaining points, since
 each combo and bonus gives multipliers. For instance, I did the above combo
 with the smash floor and foot cutter positions inverted, giving 1700; with
 the listed order, it gave 2100+. Leading off with the most damage dealing
 techs is the hallmark of a good comboist; you could even use a Quake Bomb

 Elektra will avoid an offensive and instead go up the stairs behind her, then
 just walk around the uppermost platform by the bell switch. If you play around
 you can really figure out her weird pattern of actions, such as always walking
 up the inner part of the stairs on the way up, but the rail-less side on the
 lower 'case.

 Since she doesn't fight back generally, I suggest using a Slave Hammer plut
 on the upper staircase (inner portion) and a springfloor aimed to throw her
 off the stairs and underneath the bell. Beat her up a bit with the pendulum
 and then toss her before she's in an injured state. Pretty simple strategy
 compared to what's come before (and what's to come). No wall trap required,
 unless you want to detonate the bell remotely.

 There's only two topple-props (pillars) here, so we'll have to chain both to

 - Foot Cutter 2 (2-panel throw)
 - Extender
 - Pendulum
 - Rising Floor 
 - Bound Rock 4 (Damage Ring)
 - Upper Wall 2

 1) Put Rising Floor between the two pillars
 2) Put an Extender and Pendulum so they are poised to knock over pillars
 3) Trigger Rising Floor, and change it to springfloor when possible
 4) Knock over first pillar w/ Extender and change it to an Upper Wall
 5) Knock over 2nd pillar w/ Pendulum and change it to a Bound Rock; put it
    where the upper wall will throw Elektra post-springfloor
 6) Trigger the springfloor, throwing Elektra toward Upper Wall
 7) Trigger it, so she flies toward the spring floor

 At this point, it should be possible to throw Elektra from the Bound Rock to
 the Upper Wall, back and forth for awhile.

 INTRUDER - Titan (Aias)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hades
 CHAMBER  - Coliseum
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 The Mobile Saw is probably the most elusive trap in the game, found in the
 Coliseum and, as its name suggests, in constant movement. It's fixed to a
 groove and moves side-to-side, so hitting it will require key precision. The
 easiest way I can think of is to lure Aias onto a Rising Floor right beneath
 and triggering it. Hitting it will throw the enemy two spaces away from the
 Rising Floor, three from the wall. [A Rising Ball doesn't seem to work for
 this purpose.] Here's my toolkit:

 - CHG Mega Yo-Yo (4)
 - CHG Foot Cutter (2)
 - CHG Rising Ball
 - DMG Bound Rock
 
 Beat up the guy a little bit with the Bound Rock until he's got about half
 his health or so left. Then do the following setup:

 1) Pick the spikepit furthest from lava, and put the foot cutter in line to
    throw Aias onto it.

 2) Put the Mega Yo-Yo so it'll go over the spikepit and whap Aias to the
    wall.

 3) Have the Rising Ball two spaces from the corner door, so that it shoots
    from the lower wall parallel to the mobile saw wall (not over the ledge).

 So, put it in action. The first hit will be from the foot cutter, and the
 2nd will be the spike pit. The mega yo-yo gets the third, throwing him at
 the mobile saw wall (HOPEFULLY NOT HITTING IT YET) and in range of the Rising
 Ball.

 4) Put a Rising Floor where Aias fell, and before he gets up, use the Rising
    Ball to score a 4th hit, dropping him back down on the Rising Wall. You
    can also relocate the Mega Yo-Yo so it will whap Aias to the wall even as
    he lies on his stomach, as a safety measure.

 5) When mobile saw is overhead, shoot Aias into it, provided he's beaten up
    enough; if he isn't, use the mega yo-yo to damage him more and shoot him
    into the wall, which should maintain the balance and give the player
    access to hit the saw next time around. The bare minimum on this end
    should give 5400+ Ark, so...
 
 Don't use pendulums for this mission; the yo-yo whoops 'em pretty bad since
 it can hit facedown targets as well.

 Shouldn't be too difficult. Since springfloors are easily evaded while the
 Shadow is upright, we can't leadoff with those. I suggest a wall trap ->
 bound rock -> Smash Floor (or similar heavy-hitting trap type). The archetype
 is pretty easy to follow, even without specifics...I hope. My way, for

 1) Vampire Wall extends three spaces over stairway middle
 2) Bound Rock falls, throws target two spaces downwards
 3) Smash Floor tosses corpse (hehe?)

 Miners are immune to arrows so the chain needle is useless here. Here's my
 simple suggestion.

 1) 3-panel springfloor, bottom of stairs (middle), pointing at a wall
 2) At wall being pointed at, Smash Wall points at other wall
 3) On "other wall," Mega Yo-Yo points at Smash Wall
 4) After initial springfloor to start chain, relocate it one tile closer to
    Smash Wall.

 All of the traps above have four orbs, except for the springfloor (I used a
 Foot Cutter, like usual). Remember that if you keep the chain going, it
 doesn't matter if the timer's at zero or not.

 1) In canal, put a push wall long enough to reach pendulumax's path (this can
    only be done from the side farthest from volt chair).

 2) At place where push wall meets pendulumax, put a springfloor aiming at
    either side, so long as pendulumax is still in line with it.

 3) Put a Bound Rock where pendulumax will knock Hawks, which should be back
    two spaces in this case.

 4) As soon as the steps 1-3 are done, immediately put a quick-load vase where

 Hawks won't aggressively attack here, so it's a matter of using his cowardice
 (he walks in a line along one of the walls with a door) to Reina's advantage.
 Remember that Hawks will dodge springfloors if he's walking around, but won't
 dodge them if he's face-down (he never dodges Foot Cutters, either). We'll use
 the following:

 - 3-panel-throw Foot Cutter
 - Smash Floor
 - Pendulum
 - Extender (or any other 2-panel-push wall besides Smash Wall)

 Here's the breakdown.

 1) Position Foot Cutter in Hawks' path, to throw him 3 panels alongside box
 2) Put pendulum between box and wall, pointing at wall
 3) Put Extender on wall nearest barrel, behind it

 Throw Hawks alongside the box and delay the pendulum a bit, until the foot
 cutter can be relocated. Put it two spaces in front of the nearest spear
 rack (point: spear rack). The explosion set off by the pendulum will always
 throw Hawks alongside the barrel. Use the Extender to push the barrel onto
 the newly-placed Foot Cutter -- Hawks will be upright, so it has to be
 primed -- and throw him onto a spear rack, completing the mission requirement.

 The antler gives a x2.8 ark bonus, so we'll definitely want to include that
 in the combo. Here's my take:

 1) Aim Buzzsaw (with 'whap to wall' capacity) at door near fireplace 
 2) In front of said door, put Smash Floor aiming at antler
 3) Underneath antler put a Bound Rock
 4) Hit Zog with Buzzsaw, which carries her to the Smash Floor
 5) Put a push wall underneath antler ASAP
 6) Wait as long as possible and use Smash Floor to hit Antler
 7) Zog falls on the Bound Rock space; use it and push wall at same time

 This should give about 4000 Ark, put Zog in the morgue, and complete the
 objective.

 Beat the crap out of Zog until she's got a sliver of health left, then bait

 wall mount doesn't come loose, and inflicts little damage when it hits Zog,
 so this may take awhile. Use a Bound Rock if you can, and don't get too close
 to Zog or her bomb gas may inflict blindness. Another thing to consider is
 that miners will self-bomb themselves in a suicide blast if things start
 looking grim, which is automatic failure, also.

 This one isn't too difficult to figure out on a cursory glance...hopefully.
 Note that the upper barrel is aligned with the thresher, and the lower one
 is aligned with the door. See the tile intersecting them? Here's the lowdown.

 1) At barrel path intersection, set a 3-tile-throw Foot Cutter
 2) Behind lowermost barrel, put a push wall (not Extender)
 3) Two spaces from thresher, put a pendulum pointing back at thresher
 4) Lure Hawks onto intersection point and flatten him with a barrel
 5) Use springfloor to launch him into thresher; put push wall behind barrel #2
 6) Use pendulum to knock Hawks back into thresher when he starts to recover
 7) Launch uppermost barrel when coast is clear

 If your wall is a fast charger (stat: 3) and you switch the push wall as fast
 as humanly possible, you can end up skipping steps 6 & 7, actually. Cool.

 Simple. Just use a springfloor + bound rock trap, then hit her with another
 bound rock. This would be harder in a flat room with no cover, but it's easy
 to lure her upstairs into the trap, like a fly in a spider's web. I managed
 to do it with just putting a bound rock atop the single stair, then dropping
 it twice. Really easy if you know how powerful that cheap Bound Rock is.

 Since Gildas' AI will have him keep at mid-range until he lunges forward with
 a swordslice, it's best to make him indisposed to begin with instead of luring
 him onto a trap or any other hooey. The incinerator/pan twofer is still on

    and pick an intersection with one of the other barrels; put a Rising Floor
    here. [Preferably, intersection point nearest stairway.]

 2) Lure Fighter onto Rising Floor and hit him with stairway barrel

 3) As he gets up, use Rising Floor and relocate pushwall to other barrel

 4) As he gets up again, hit him with the 2nd barrel and change Rising Floor
    to a springfloor.

 5) Use springfloor when ready to throw Nash onto stairway

 6) Use pendulum to knock Nash onto the tile that's both within range of the
    tumbleprop and straightaway from the hook

 6) Trigger tumbleprop to buy time to throw Nash toward Hook (relocate a new
    springfloor)

 7) Where Nash will land, put a vace so that he will definitely be hit by hook

 Kinda convoluted, but it should work. Use Charge Rings!

 1) Slidestair Nash
 2) Springfloor underneath chandelier
 3) Knock over both tumbleprops and chandelier when possible (4 devices used)

 Now, the only two remaining devices left at this point would be the fireplace
 and waterfall, with the former being easiest to use. During the tumbleprop
 tumbling, put a pendulum so it will hit Nash into a path aligned with the
 fireplace. Then, use a buzzsaw with the "whap to wall" traits (or springfloor,
 I guess) to aim him right into the logs roaring on an open fire. This is a
 pretty easy trap setup in theory, but there's two things that are required
 basically:

 1) Nash is immune to normal springfloors, so use the Foot Cutter
 2) Use tumbleprop nearest fireplace ASAP to make setup easier to do

 I suppose there are other ways to do this, such as using vases to direct the
 hapless fighter into the fireplace's path, but the above is my fave way. It
 nets about 16000+ Ark, to boot...not that you'll see a cent. =/

 The Great Falls trap is atop the staircase, and triggers when an enemy in the
 small stream is extended over the edge. Gildas will be in "dummy" mode like
 a few enemies before, meaning that his first priority is to decend the stair-
 -cases and only attacks when Reina is adjacent to him. This "adjacent attack"
 strategy can actually be very useful, since it's possible to keep Gildas on
 one tile by encroaching and then backing away from his attack. Needless to
 say, Smash Floors/Walls help out a lot here. I prefer to use the buzzsaw to
 knock him over the falls, which is a good alternative to push walls (he'll
 only avoid walls when he's got his bearings, like most enemies). Might I
 suggest hitting him with a Bound Rock to lure his HP? The Great Falls only
 does 30 damage initially, but a Smash Floor -> Bound Rock -> Smash Floor ->
 Buzzsaw -> [whatever] combo should do nicely.

 Another relatively simple mission. His dash-n'-slash attack can be avoided
 at times, but it's still best to keep one's distance. Chain a springfloor and
 Bound Rock, then your favorite wall trap (I wuv the 4-orb buzzsaw). Naturally
 this works best when chained with the tumbleprop at the foot of one of the
 stairs. He may be left with a little health leftover if Reina doesn't trigger
 the tumbleprop manually, mind you.

 TIME LMT - 1:10

 This is roughly the same strategy as #43, except the swordsman is immune to
 push walls and all the traps don't have to be done in one string. However, it
 is still best to mimick the #43 strategy and chain the lumber saw, thorny
 ball, and volt chair (in that order). As for hitting the swordsman with the
 death needle, this can't be done from below. Lure him to the stairtop where
 a mid-range (3-tile throw) can shoot him parallel to the wall and impale
 in midair. It's possible to under- and overshoot the death needle, so come
 prepared.

 Since the fighter's immune to push walls, my fave 3-hit combo goes like:

 1) Make Gildas' dash attack bring him into the lumber saw at the beginning
 2) Use a Foot Cutter to throw him underneath the thorny ball
 3) Pendulum him adjacent to the volty chair when possible
 4) Use a buzzsaw (set on stairway) to knock him into the volty chair

 This is annoying in theory, but here's how I do it:

 1) Nash starts near the highest cart. Bait him into standing on the track,
    then spring it so he lands against the spearwall.

 2) Springfloor Nash four spaces parallel to wall (away from corner), maybe
    with an Ice Blizzard floor trap (freezes where he falls)

 3) Have an Upper Wall aimed at where Nash lands, then knock him in direction
    of 2nd mine cart

 4) Where Nash lands from Upper Wall, have a vase-type trap ready. He should
    start walking toward minecart route.

 5) Time the minecart's release so it hits him as he stumbles blindly.

 This was the easiest way I could think of, and it takes about..oh, 0:40, so
 no room for mistakes (not that there should be any!).

 As we've seen before, the Darkwitch will only use the darkness spell if Reina
 is far enough away; at close-range, she will run away a short distance and
 fire the red homing projectiles. This is repeated until the spell portion can
 be setup. So, with her AI in mind, here's how I did it:

 1) Forced her into corner by door, into a 3-tile setup pushwall
 2) Dropped a Bound Rock where she fell, which was adjacent to pitfall tile
 3) Baited her into moving away, onto a springfloor aimed at pitfall
 4) Triggered switch, dropping her into the pitfall.

 Remember that pitfall victims climb out on the side opposite the one they fell
 in, so if the initial combo doesn't help enough, it's easy to setup another
 combo that can keep knocking the victim back onto a springfloor until they're
 tenderized enough for the pitfall.

 INTRUDER - Titan +4 (Aias > Elektra > Seneca > Zog > Godwin)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - All Chambers
 TIME LMT - 5:00

 Divided evenly, that's about 1:15 per Titan, which shouldn't be that hard as
 long as the mighty power of the Bound Rock is used.

 TITAN #1: (Entrance) He starts straight across from Reina, and can be smashed
           with the Godgate, flipped with a springfloor, and finished with a
           Bound Rock. Simply get to the other side of the Godgate afterwards
           and repeat the springfloor -> Bound Rock combo

 TITAN #2: (Big Pillar Room) Elektra starts a little ways away, so I recommend
           a Foot Cutter -> Pitfall -> Bound Rock -> Buzzsaw combo. The way
           I've set it up, as soon as she climbs out of the pifall and is hit
           by the Bound Rock, she flies over the pitfall and can be knocked in
           again by the buzzsaw -- pretty ingenious!

 TITAN #3: (Tomb Rock Room) Seneca makes her second appearance in the game. As
           a ninja, she has 3 healthbars and can avoid pesky springfloors...
           but not the Foot Cutter, as we've seen previously! Chain one to a
           Bound Rock and repeat, bypassing this fool. She can really do a
           number on Reina at close range so avoid her like the plague. Oh,
           and since she can teleport like a Sage upon damage, make sure to
           do quick chains, or she may avoid subsequent hits during self-
           -removal.

 TITAN #4: (Arkship Stairway) Zog starts on the stairway nearest Reina, so
           lead him away and do another springfloor/Bound Rock combo. He's
           immune to fire so the more satisfying Big Cerby combo isn't 
           applicable.

 There are only four "titans" to defeat, or so says the overview. In actuality
 Reina has to fight a 4-healthbar Hellknight (Godwin) in the castle's final
 chamber. His 2-hit combo can do over half of Reina's health, so staying near
 him at mid-range is out of the question. However, he can be easily baited and
 avoided at close-range, just like most other simple fighters. His portion'll
 need about 100-120 seconds, so make sure to end Zog's turn with that much at
 least.

 So, the gameplan for him is to setup one good trap combo -- a springfloor,
 boundrock, and pushwall -- and just reuse it over and over. Trying to harness
 the mad pillars and whatnot wastes time; keep Godwin on the local combo and
 he can be directed easier. He won't use his dash attack at close range,
 remember! A few other tips:

 1) If you put a springfloor between Reina and Godwin, it can be triggered and
    catch the hellknight during the dashattack! Miss, however, and Reina will
    be killed; he's probably got around 300 ATK or so.

 2) There's a health refill in the room for a reason. Use it!

 3) Reina runs away faster than she backs up, so if you're baiting someone on
    a tile, use the quick about-face move to avoid unnecessary damage

 4) A Bound Rock is powerful but hazardous; however, placing the trap setup
    above in a corner can make it more viable.

 I actually did this with the following:

 - D Bound Rock 4
 - C Vampire Wall 3
 - C Smash Floor 4

 The Smash Floor throws Godwin three spaces into the corner, where a Bound
 Rock strikes; Godwin isn't throw anywhere since it's the corner, though. The
 Vampire Wall pushes Godwin back onto the Smash Floor, and it's repeatin'
 time! The only variable is the invincibility status Godwin gets sometimes,
 and it can be annoying; try to work around it, though, and keep the chains
 going. If you started with about 120 seconds, you can take 2-3 invincible
 cycles. Don't let the chain interrupt, though!

 1) Smash Wall -> to corner by door
 2) Smash Floor -> to corner by gears
 3) Slave Mask -> starts walking into wall

 The Whitemage has to be hit by all the damaging devices in the room (the

 to survive, we can't combo her too much. Here's my suggestion:

 1) Throw her into the killer wall first thing, which takes off almost one
    healthbar

 2) Find the nearest floor pike and toss her onto it. She'll be hit and heal,
    then be hit again and heal a little more until she can survive another
    floor pike. Also, she appears at the edge of the trap so she can't be hit
    once again.

 3) Repeat step #2 on the other pike

 4) Lure her onto a smash floor and wait for the killer saw to be semi-aligned,
    then throw her at it. There's some leeway for hitting it, so just make sure
    to fire a little before it's properly synched up. To keep her on the panel
    just let her wail on Reina.

 This seems easy...until you learn that the Armor takes 1 damage from most
 initial traps, pendulums, and such. He can catch falling rocks and toss 'em
 aside harmlessly, but if they bounce (released prematurely), they can connect
 with his chin and send him flying for 50-ish damage. I suggest using some
 Stealth Rocks, which are invisible and can't be avoided by the guy. There's a
 fun trick you may have noticed with falling rocks: the piercing types can be
 kept in play as long as they're in motion. So, lure the guy to a stairway,
 hit him with a Stealth Rock, and when it rolls down, have a pushwall shove
 it back towards the stairway, scoring a 2nd or maybe even a 3rd hit. Very
 useful to know, considering the dude's immunities...

#88: Make Combo Hit with Damage 300+!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Whitemagic (Dana)
 CASTLE   - Secret Base
 CHAMBER  - Strategy Room
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 Like before, this is a good one to use the 4-orb Chain Needle (7-hit) wall
 trap on, as each scores 25 damage at its best. Basically, hit her with a
 Heavy Claw, shoot her full of needles, then finish with a Slave Hammer (with
 Damage Ring). It's rather simple; just remember that this setup works best
 where she starts initially, and you won't even have to use the SH's detach
 ability (or can't really, since it hits the wall).

#89: Crush the Enemy Within Ark 200!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Whitemagic (Dana)
 CASTLE   - Secret Base
 CHAMBER  - Punitive Room
 TIME LMT - 0:50

 This can be rather annoying, although it's simple in theory. Two things are
 needed: a 3-hit Chain Needle and a 7-hit Chain Needle. Since Dana will cure
 herself at a given point (about 50-75% HP), there needs to be a low-ark
 blitzkreig. So, as she comes down the stairs, point the 3-hitter at her and
 score 2 hits (that's what I got). Now, she needs to be in the middle of a
 square 1-2 spaces away from the wall for the 7-hit combo to hit her. Since
 the arkrate for the Chain Needle is always x0.5, this is about the only way
 to go (although a low-damage springfloor can help, but is unnecessary).

#90: Avoid Damages & Make Combo w/200+ Damage!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Armor (Orlando)
 CASTLE   - Secret Base
 CHAMBER  - Entrance
 TIME LMT - 1:30
 
 Disgustingly easy. We'll need a Bound Rock, Smash Floor, Smash Wall, and a
 springfloor

 1) Put up springfloor at bottom of stairs, pointing at bound rock
 2) Bound rock should throw Orlando against the wall after it's done hitting
 3) Change springfloor to smashfloor at tile Smash Wall throws victim

 From there, just use the smashfloor to juggle the enemy onto the bound rock
 (which is relocated as well right by the smash wall), then use the smash wall
 to throw him onto the smash floor. Simplicity.

#91: Earn More than Ark 10000!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Titan (Aias)
 CASTLE   - Training
 CHAMBER  - Training Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:40

 Since there are no initial devices here, we'll have to rely on our own cool
 combos. The easiest one is to do a "classic" setup of springfloor -> falling
 rock or vase -> push wall -> repeat, switching out the oldest-used trap for a
 new one to keep the arkrate rising. Like for Godwin in mission #80, this is
 best done in a corner which can let the player work sloppily in terms of
 new trap creation. My setup, for reference:

 1) Smash Floor
 2) Vase Type #1 (Vase)
 3) Vampire Wall -> back onto springfloor tile
 4) Spring Floor
 5) Vase Type #2 (Crane)
 6) Upper Wall -> onto relocated springfloor tile, if need be
 7) Foot Cutter
 8) Smash Wall
 9) Vase Type #3 (Slave Mask)

 Then repeat as necessary. The above combo got 10663 and took about 50s to do,
 so there's ample time to repeat it to clear the quota.

#92: Crush Enemy w/o Using Trap Button & Having Damage!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Bomber (Elektra)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin 
 CHAMBER  - God's Gate
 TIME LMT - 1:00

 Insanely easy, as long as you don't try to bother with the Godgate, which
 does weaksauce damage. Only two automated traps are needed: a good spring
 floor or bearclaw, and a push wall. There are two warrior statues here; put
 the bearclaw between them in the wall, and the pushwall aiming at the
 statue. Lure Elektra onto the cool trap blend and it'll quickly take her
 health down. Repeat once more and this one's in the books.

#93: Finish with Slash Fan!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Assassin (Hawks)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - Blue Chamber
 TIME LMT - 0:30

 I'm sure there are plenty of ways to do this, although I took my fave trap
 -- the illustrious Buzzsaw -- and put it to good use. Here's my setup:

 1) Destroy bridge immediately; Hawks usually falls on same panel
 2) Hit with Mega Yo-Yo -> throw towards fan
 3) Hit with Buzzsaw -> flies back to Mega Yo-Yo
 4) Mega Yo-Yo hits again -> throws near Rising Floor
 5) As he crosses Rising Floor, hit with Buzzsaw and throw him upwards

 It cuts it pretty close, but it works easily as long as step #1 goes right.

#94: Make Combo Hit Including 4 Room Devices!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Miner (Zog)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Guardian Stairs
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 This is basically an extension of a previous objective in this same location,
 which called for usage of 3 devices. Basically, we're trying for a barrel ->
 barrel -> arkship -> guillotine like before, except an extra barrel is
 tacked on. Zog's immune to Big Cerby, as before, so it has to use these
 traps. First, the upper barrel part

 1) One space behind barrel aligned with stairs, put a heavy claw
 2) Have a 3-panel pushwall primed to throw other barrel at heavy claw space
 3) In front of barrel, put a vase

 So, lure Zog onto the heavy claw space and hit him with a barrel, pinning
 him there. Relocate that 3-panel pushwall to hit both Zog and the aligned
 barrel while he's in the heavy claw. Once he hits the 2nd barrel, he should
 be on the vase. Trigger it to make him start walking downstairs.

 4) When possible, use 3-panel springfloor to flip Zog into arkship's path
 5) Relocate a wall trap so that it shoots from upper level to arkship switch;
    this must be done prior to #4

 So, like a previous mission, as soon as he's flipped onto the "sweet spot"
 aligned with the guillotine, the wall projectile hits the switch and pins
 him down for a moment.

 6) Relocate 3-panel-throw springfloor under Zog to flip him on guillotine

 Depending on how much time is bought with the arkship laser, this should be
 in the bag. The combo overall gives 'bout 23000 Ark, which is a testament to
 its greatness!

#95: Finish with Fire Breath!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Fighter (Nash)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Hidden Grave
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 Nash will avoid Reina and instead walk along the door near the stream, so
 we'll have to find some good ways to get him up there. Take note of his
 path first, though -- he walks to a corner, past the door one space, and
 then starts back. He also avoids normal springfloors and stops walls -- eesh.

 My favorite way goes like this, based off that one wall tile past the door:

 1) Buzzsaw in Nash's walking route, so it fires up stairs to corner
 2) Bound Rock
 3) On way back, set Smash Floor so it aligns with Fire Breath tile
 4) Hit with Buzzsaw and as he flies back, trigger Smash Floor
 5) When Nash tries to walk back down, trigger Fire Breath

 Unlike other enemies who have a sixth sense, Nash's stupidity will make him
 walk right over the Fire Breath tile, so even if you overshoot it, as long
 as it's in the shortest route downwards, no bait's needed!

#96: Make Combo Hit Including 2 Bonfires!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Swordsman (Gildas)
 CASTLE   - Dark Ruin
 CHAMBER  - Darkness Worship
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 Hitting the enemy with the bonfire is simple -- when they're adjacent to the
 mad pillar, use an Upper Wall2 and they hit it 100% of the time -- but it's
 chaining with a repeat that's hard. The reason there's so much time is so
 the player can do little chains of springfloor -> vase -> wall trap -> etc.
 to nudge them in the right direction. There's limitless ways to go about it
 in that way, so as long as you're using vases (a charge ring gives it a count
 of 1!) this won't be that hard. 

#97: Make Combo Hit Including 2 Devices!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Armor
 CASTLE   - Castle Hades
 CHAMBER  - Dungeon
 TIME LMT - 1:40

 This is annoying, considering there are only two devices -- the iron maiden
 casket and spiked ceiling in the execution jail -- are in two different rooms.
 However, there is a simple solution: chain short-charge vases and spring
 floors! Since different rooms are involved, vases and springfloors can be
 set ahead of time for an easier time. Naturally Charge Rings are good for this
 sort of thing. Just remember to have the enemy walk through the doors himself
 or it may pose a problem when trying to get the traps off.

#98: Make 4 Topple-Props Hit & Crush the Enemy!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Whitemagic (Dana) 
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - White Chamber
 TIME LMT - 1:20

 This is actually really easy, as long as you know that the topple-props don't
 hit one another if they fold over the central staircase. It's really not that
 different from a previous one, although Dana has hardly any life so she'll be
 at 0 HP about halfway through this. Here's my take:

 - from Dana's initial position, use a springfloor to throw her betwixt the
   two pillars atop the staircase. Knock both over, and Dana should survive,
   albeit barely. Let her heal herself while the pendulum/wall are setup at
   the other two pillars as well.

 Now, to use the other two pillars, which are harder since they don't both
 work as the other two did. There's a whole rigamarole for this, but I have
 a better way:

 - Have the pendulum/wall trap setup to knock over the two pillars. In-between
   them have a Smash Floor pointed at the pillar you'll trigger lastly. Lure
   Dana onto that springfloor, and let her wail on Reina to keep her there.
   Hit her with the 3rd pillar and kill her, and trigger the 4th pillar a li'l
   after. Use the Smash Floor to eject her towards it, and score the 4th hit
   in midair.

 Dana always comes down the stairs along the same side, so it's easy to lure
 her onto the spot, most of the time.

#99: Crush the Enemy Within 5 Trap Startups!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Darkwitch (Slami)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hades
 CHAMBER  - Audience Room
 TIME LMT - 0:20

 If Reina doesn't move at the start, Slami will start casting the darkness
 spell five tiles in front of her, on the red carpet. This is kind of a stupid
 objective since there won't be time for 5 startups anyway. So, as it goes...

 1) Put a Heavy Claw five spaces from Reina
 2) Put a Slave Hammer on red carpet, aiming at thrones
 3) On wall between thrones, aiming at heavy claw, put a buzzsaw

 Here's the lowdown, and it'll probably take all 20 seconds. Hit her with the
 Heavy Claw first, then the Buzzsaw when she's confined; it just does damage
 and doesn't knock her anywhere. Now for the slightly hard part: hit her with
 the slave hammer and detach it immediately after, so its ball is rolling
 toward the throne stair and starts rolling back down. At this point, hit
 Slami with the buzzsaw and she'll fly toward the rolling ball, dying in the
 process. Whew!

#100: Crush All Enemies!
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
 INTRUDER - Darkwitch+4 (Slami -> Nash/Orlando -> Seneca -> Godwin -> Aragon)
 CASTLE   - Castle Hue
 CHAMBER  - All Chambers
 TIME LMT - 5:00

 The final mission appears only when #91-99 have been completed, and is in the
 same vein as others that pit Reina against the clock as she slays a squad of
 intruders.

 ROOM #1: (Tumbleprop Stairway) Slami is fought first in the stairway with
          pillars around it. Setup a good combo on the mini-stair near Reina
          and lure her there, which also avoids being hit with a darkness
          spell.

 ROOM #2: (Minecart Room) There's limitless ways to attack Nash here, and
          the easiest ones involve hitting him with the minecart near the
          slope he starts by. Remember that he avoids springtraps and can
          block walls, so hit him with a Foot Cutter first.

          Sometimes instead of getting access to this room, Reina is sent to
          the Guillotine Room to fight Orlando (Armor). He can be subject to
          a Foot Cutter -> Bound Rock -> Vampire Wall -> Repeat technique as
          well. He blocks blasts, arrows, and the usual things his class can
          do.

 I think in regards to which battle is fought secondly, whichever door Reina
 is closest to is the one that _doesn't_ open. Orlando's is easier but he
 takes less damage, so try to aim for Nash's one to save about 10 seconds.

 ROOM #3: (Waterwheel Room) Seneca appears here with her three healthbars,
          so it helps to chain with the waterwheel a few times. Like before,
          she can teleport like a sage, ricochet-hit with her knives, blocks
          walls, can jump over ledges, and avoids springfloors (not foot cutter
          though). Clearly a genteel lady, haha. Make sure to heal up after
          this battle.

 ROOM #4: (Throneroom) This area is to Godwin's advantage, since it's flat and
          little place to hide. He's got four healthbars like before, and can
          still kill Reina if his dash-attack combo hits. The best way to go
          is using a looping combo in the corner nearest the door, such as the
          one used in Mission #80.

 In the final room is the only sage in Expert Mode, Aragon. There are two
 tumbleprops that can be used, although given his teleportation skills, it's
 much better to use them as obstacles to block his annoying homing bomblets.
 Try to get him into a looping combo like Godwin, because his defense isn't
 as good even if he also has 4 healthbars. Just remember he's immune to some
 traps inherently, like magnets and push walls and springfloors, so leadoff
 with a good Foot Cutter [etc.] to start the juggling. Did I mention that he
 can recoup health (about a bar) when he's almost dead? He's quite formidable
 overall. 

 One good tip is that when he teleports, he always appears behind Reina...so
 if Reina stands on a tile she wants Aragon to go on, he'll appear there after
 a few ticks.
