INTRODUCTION
======================================================================================
Finally, I'm able to solve all the Puzzle Boxes in The Puzzle Phantom Realm Levels 
myself. Of course, it was not easy though, especially Level 14 onwards, it's been a 
hard time since I tried almost all kind of solutions I can think of to solve every 
puzzle boxes available in The Puzzle Phantom Realm. At last, this FAQ is available. 
The information of this FAQ is extracted from its original document of my FAQ dated on 
06/14/02. This Mini Game FAQ (The Puzzle Phantom Realm) is written based on both the 
NTSC/J & NTSC/UC designations of Onimusha 2. 

If you want more challenge to solve all the puzzles by yourself before referring to 
_this_ guide for assistance, please try the levels on your own and read this guide as 
least as possible.



======================================================================================
PUZZLE PHANTOM REALM (パズル幻夢空間)
======================================================================================
I suggest you go through the puzzles by yourself first before referring to this guide 
to judge the difficulty for the levels and see how far you can go! Okay, let's starts 
the challenge!


The Puzzle Phantom Realm
------------------------
This is a Mini-Game available in Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny. Literally, it has 
nothing magnificent about this Mini Game but it's a very challenging game that 
involves intellectual thinking, retries and sometimes frustrations. Each puzzle box in 
the PPR levels unlocks 1 Artwork and you have to save at the Save Point for it to be 
added to your Gallery in the menu. By the way, in case you couldn't go any further in 
solving the puzzles, please stop tormenting yourself from trying over and over again, 
you will get frustrated and loose interest in this Mini Game if you keep doing so. 
Instead, just relax your mind a while over a cup of coffee. Always remember that 
puzzles are not to be solved over anxiety and frustration. However, enjoy and have 
fun!


TOTAL LEVELS of PPR     - 20 LEVELS
DIFFICULTY LEVEL of PPR - The difficulty arises as each level cleared.
SAVE is allowed during your progress at its particular level. The save point is the 
pinkish radiance that shines with a blinking light.

Q:  How To Unlock The Puzzle Phantom Realm?

A:  I'll give the solution of how I collect all artworks to unlock the Puzzle Phantom 
Realm through gifts exchange among all the sub-characters. However, the setting is 
random and you'll not always receive all the artworks from the sub-character in one 
row. 


The SAVE & LOAD Trick
---------------------
Therefore, I suggest you save your game each time a sub-character gives you an artwork 
when you give them an item. This is to avoid receiving junks items such as Normal 
Bullets, Normal Arrows and Fire Arrows. Use the Save & Load trick to eventually 
receive all artworks as a guarantee.


HOW TO RECEIVE ALL THE ARTWORKS?
--------------------------------
***You need to use the Save & Load Trick in order to ensure that you receive the 
artworks in return.***

site, GameFAQs.

Steven Ng of IGN - for being interested in my Onimusha 2 FAQs and hosting it at IGN.

Muni Shinobu - I was too lazy to go through all the locations in the game for all the 
Artworks and asked for him to allow me to use his information (Artworks' Location) in 
my FAQ.

Ng Kian Sen (me myself) - for keep on trying various solutions for each level of 
Puzzle Phantom Realm Levels and finally completed writing this FAQ for this section of 
the game, Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny
