5. SILENT HILL WALKTHROUGH (DEMO VERSION)
=======================================================================
Note: The demo was available on Official Playstation Magazine no. 16
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
5.1 SCENE 1
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Silent Hill - Ghost Town
------------------------
The game starts with Harry getting out of his trashed car, maybe he got
a real serious crash. He then see that his little girl, Cheryl, isn't
here, so he's going to seek for her. After walking a little in front
of you the game'll stop and Harry will hear footsteps, he'll chase them
by himself and see a little girl, is it Cheryl? The girl starts running
in the fog, but you can see a little shadow of her and pursue her.
After a little while he'll stop again and see her changing direction,
chase her again and she'll eventually enter a little passageway.

The Passageway
--------------
After entering the passageway it's really straightforward, follow the
passage and somewhere you'll have to light up your lighter because 
it'll be too dark to see. Continue your way and the game'll pause to
show a dead body attached after a chain wall. Some baby zombies will
attack you and you don't have no other choice except dying because you
can't escape...

Restaurant
Items: Flashlight, Knife, Radio, Neighborhood map
-------------------------------------------------
A FMV will start showing you having a nightmare and wake up in a
moment. Cybil will introduce herself and talk you. After a while you'll
decide to go after Cheryl again and she'll stop you and give you a gun.
After this she'll go outside. Search the restaurant for items and go to
the door. The radio will ring as hell and you'll go see what's going on
with this radio. The window behind you break and some flying zombies 
pass through the window (TO BE CONTINUED). It's the end  of the SCENE 1
demo. Nice heh?

8. HINTS
=======================================================================
- It might be stupid to say that but you'll be safer when your
  flashlight is turned off in dark places, because enemies are
  attracted by light and sound.

- Save ammo or don't kill everything you see... it's useless I know it.
  Some of the monsters you kill can respawn when you solve a puzzle and
  others are just a waste of bullets.

- Check the map very often, it's the best way for not getting lost.

- If you can't go any further check this walkthrough, duh! ;) But if
  you're really farther than my walkthrough I recommend you to read
  correctly the riddles and try to figure them out. Or try to combine
  items you just found or e-mail me, maybe I have the answer for you.
