You look down on your missions with a overhead view. All the action
occurs on the top screen, and the bottom screen contains a map and shows
which special item you have selected. As an enemy comes within your

There are several ways to perform a kill an assassin would love. The
safest is to set a bamboo trap. Using your stealth, sneak around the
enemy's route and plant the trap in his path. Then clear out of the
area. Once the trap goes off, you're safe to go back to the area and
take any items the enemy drops.
You can kill enemies in any number of ways, but you'll score the big
points through stealth kills and combos. Combo Kills, Stealth and Damage
Taken are three of the five areas where your score will really
fluctuate. You can replay a level to try to get a perfect score.
