The stone cold mines. The level starts with an in-game cutscene.
There's a checkpoint which activates as you grab the revolver from the Custodian's shack.
- MO1: "Reach road to Janokubi Valley."
- MO2: "Reach road to Janokubi Valley after defeating all Shibito."
- Lesser objectives:
- Picking up a library card.
Your player-character. She belongs to the cast of medium-tough characters, not being able to pull herself up any obstacle that is the height of a normal player-character. She starts with the flashlight equipped, with no other items available.
Type 26 revolver
The powerful weapon which Naoko acquires. It comes with a formidable amount of 24 bullets too.
You can use it to move most of the level's shibitos to the front of the mine office. After you've used it once you can't use it again. (The mechanism is different than in Akira's level.) The shibitos who gather in the yard do not leave to their normal routes again during the level.
Mission objective 2 success prequisite
It says that you have to finish the level with all the shibitos knocked out. But that's not all - a hidden prequisite is also that you push the trolley away. So, if you finish the level with all the shibitos knocked out, but not having pushed the trolley, you'll nonetheless get only the mission objective 1 completed.
So much of it has been said already! As you know, it kills everything it touches instantly, even your player-character. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, you can never touch it on this level simply because it's too fast for you. Maybe with gliding, but it wouldn't be easy.
If the shibitos have grouped out on the yard, the trolley, when pushed, kills a couple of them.
Other interesting things
There's an invisible wall at the lowest floor of the Mine Office. Run down the stairs after a while of running, and you'll slap into something invisible, as if a wall.
