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

Tenchu: Shadow Assassins is the latest in the Tenchu series of games
focusing on stealth and cunning instead of just running in guns (or
swords, in this case) blazing. The developers have changed things up
by making the camera behind the back a la Resident Evil 4 and 5, and
it makes the game play considerably differently from previous entries
in the series.

The PSP version has half the stages of the Wii (the Wii has Shadow
versions of each stage), but with the ability to play it portably,
this is an ok loss, the fact that they werea ble to squeeze everything
into the UMD is nothing less than a miracle.

II. CONTROLS                                                    [TSCon]
=======================================================================

L - Run

You can run, but it'll alert enemies easily.

R - Hayate

Hayate allows you to move between shadowed areas without being spotted
by enemies. You'll be relying on this a lot.

Triangle - Ninja Vision

Shows you enemy field of vision and hiding areas. You'll be using this
a lot too to gauge where enemies are.

Square - Stealth Kill / Hissatsu

When an enemy is near you and is not in alert mode, you can use the
square button to stealth kill him. However if he is in alert mode
(searching for you) he'll be untouchable until he gives up.

X - Jump

Self explanatory.

O - Action

Used to do special actions such as climb onto rafters.

Directional buttons - Item usage

Left and right pick your items, up drops your current item, and down
uses the item (you'll go into aiming mode for this, use the O button
to use the item).

Analog Stick - Movement

Again, self explanatory.

You'll see a guard immediately upon the area start. Extinguish flames
nearby to stay in the shadows, then kill him when he faces away. Now
go out and stay in the bushes and kill another guard. Go into the
nearby door and take the cat. Go down the stairs and you'll find two
guards, one walking (that you can see), one standing (that you can't).
When both cannot see you, run out and kill the standing guard. In the
prison you can find a poison. Extinguish the lights and kill the
walking guard, then use the poison to destroy the lock, and grab the
key and ninjato inside. Now go up the stairs and you'll find a locked
door nearby. Open it, and kill the walking gaurd inside. As you press
on you'll find another standing guard. Kill him when his back is
turned. Now grab the key and unlock the goal door.

Go into the thickets. Kill the guard and take the box, then place it
beside the nearby wall so you can jump onto it. Now kill the guard
from aboce and find a key nearby. You'll see a door near you and a
guard inside. When he can't see you, go into the shadows and jump
onto the rafters. Kill the guard from above, then move along the
rafters and you'll find another guard that you can kill from above.
Now jump down and move on and you'll find a door with a guard outside.
Kill him when his back is turned. You'll find some ghostmakers nearby
so use them to kill the last guard you can see. Now go to the goal.

STAGE 9 - ESCORTING THE PRINCESS                                [TSS09]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You'll begin the stage with a swordfight.

Use a kunai to kill a guard on your right. Now jump onto a nearby tree
and jump to another tree with a fishing rod at its base. Grab it then
go back onto the tree. Now go to the next tree, and jump down. Now
hand from the ledge on your left and kill the guard. Go back up and
hide behind the nearby wagon. Kill the nearby guard and then jump down
from the cliff onto a platform. Jump onto another tree and move to
the next one. Jump to the next tree and then jump down. Kill a guard
to your left by hanging to the left and go back to the beginning. Use
a kasugai and you'll see an enemy below. Kill him from above and then
run to the goal.

Run through the bridge and jump onto the trees in order to jump over
a hole on the ground. Now jump over the next gap, and ten the one to
your left. Climb up and keep going, then hang on the ledge to wait
for an enemy below you can drop down to kill. Keep going along the
path and then you'll find two guards when you're at the door. When
the armored guard is unaware, run to the guard and kill him from 
behind. Now use a ghostmaker on the armored guard. User another
ghostmaker on the armored guard near the goal, and head through.

Kill the ninjas hiding in the thickets on either side with kunai.
Now go onto the bridge, and then use another kunai to kill the gunner
on the tower, and a ninja in the thickets. Hide in the thickets
yourself and kill the guard. Run to the goal.

Kill the gunner on the tower with a kunai. Keep to the shadows and kill
the nearby guard. Keep to the shadows and you'll find a guard who
stands there. Move up to him and kill both him and the guard in the
room nearby in one stroke. Now you can use a knuai on the epxlosives
in the room nearby to take out another guard, leaving you a clear way
to the goal.

Go into the nearby door and grab the key, then kill the guard nearby.
Use a ghostmaker on the other guard nearby and go to the other house
where you'll see another guard. Kill him and go up the stairs, where
you will find another guard in the room. Kill him when his back is
turned and then go outside. Kill the gunner, and then head to the goal.

Go around the corner of the building, and kill the nearby guard, then
hide in the shadows after extinguishing a flame. Kill the nearby
standing guard, and hide in the shadows again. Kill the gunner on
the tower when the guard is beneath it to kill them both. Grab the
key nearby and go into the building. Kill the guard inside, then use
a kunai to kill an enemy in the thickets near the goal. Go to the goal.

Now you have another swordfight before the level ends.

STAGE 10 - SEKIYA NAOTADA                                       [TSS10]
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hide in the thickets on the right when you're not noticed. Then kill
the ninja when he's nearby. Now go to the thickets near the gaurd and
kill him to take his key. Use a shuriken or kunai to kill the ninja
hiding on the opposite side of where you are. Go to the goal.

Hide to the thickets and kill the guard when he is near. Go to the
right and keep going, killing a ninja in the shadows with a shuriken.
You'll eventually come across a walking guard. Go under the balcony
and kill him when he's nearby. Now kill the other guard from the
balcony and go to the goal.

Use a shuriken or kunai on a ninja in front of you, then on the two
near the pond. Hide in the shadows after extinguishing the flames
then kill the ninja as he nears. Now kill a ninja in the thickets
near a hole in the wall. Go into the building and you'll find a ninja
you can kill when his back is turned. Now go out and you'll find
a walking guard you can kill from below the balcony nearby. Now you
can make a beeline for the goal.

Shuriken/kunai the ninja hiding in the thickets, then hide in the
thickets. Use another shuriken/kunai on a ninja when he gets near the
fire to kill him. Now go up the stairs and you'll find two guards.
When they are nearby, throw a smoke bomb and kill them both. Now
jump over the fire and go to the roof. You'll see a platform with
kasugai on them. Drop to it and kill the ninja nearby. Now you'll find
another ninja as you go forward, so kill him when his back is turned.
You can now go to the goal.

Climb onto the rafters, and follow them leftwise. Kill a guard from
above then drop down and go through the smoke. Use a shuriken when
you find a ninja, and then go forward. You'll find another ninja
you can kill rather effortlessly, and go to the goal.

Grab the nearby shuriken, and kill the hidden ninja in the corner.
Now grab the kasugai. Go to the door and use the kasugai on the
mattress when the guard is away. When he comes back, kill him. Now you
will see another ninja as you go to the door. Kill him when his back
is turned and keep going. Jump over the fire, and go to the goal.

Grab the shuriken nearby and jump onto the rafters. Kill the ninja
below you, and drop down. You'll see a samurai and a fishing rod.
Grab the fishing rod when the coast is clear and use it on the guard
when he is near the fire to kill him. Now use a ghostmaker to blow
open the wall and go through, then climb into the rafters. Kill the
ninja, and head to the end of the level, and the game.

You'll have to fight another swordfight. As always, you die in one
hit, but swordfights are rather easy, so you shouldn't have too much
trouble.

Congratulations, you beat Tenchu: Shadow Assassins!

-GameFAQs, for making this site, which I use a lot.
-From Software for making this game. Much better than the last Tenchu
 on PSP.
-Ubisoft for bringing it here. Otherwise I'd have had to import it.
 And that would've been annoying.
