■１．Touhou Rei'iden Back Story
In the eastern country lies a small shrine called 'Hakurei Shrine.'
Regular people rarely go there due to various events that transpired.
Despite this, there is a reason that "things that aren't human"
never come down to terrorize the Human Village.
The reason is that shrine maidens, women channeling the power of the
gods, have lived at this shrine from generation to generation.
These powerful women live in this remote shrine because there is a
gateway, which they have been guarding, that connects to Hell and
Makai where the "non-human things" reside.
Long ago, the country's most powerful mountaineer ascetics,
exorcists, and other spiritual leaders gathered at Hakurei shrine
to seal off the demons and youkai. They were successful, but the
recoil was so powerful that it killed anyone who gathered.
Time passed, and the effectiveness power of the seal began to fade.
The shrine maiden here, in order to stop the "non-human things" from
reaching the human village, has trained intensely to fight enemies
she cannot beat. Even knowing it was futile she went towards the
gate, at the sacrifice of her own life.
The truth is, she's the shrine maiden who always get caught up in
strange things, Reimu Hakurei. Some "things that aren't human"
destroyed, and she was enraged. The only thing to calm her rage is
the total annihilation of all "things that aren't human"!!
Well, that's half wrong too.
The real truth is that Reimu Hakurei is quite an easygoing person.
Acting on her whims as always, she decided to enter the gate.
After awhile, she realized that only the Hakurei Shrine's greatest
treasure, the Yin-Yang Orb, was effective against these things.
Reimu: "Oh well. As long as I use the Yin-Yang Orb
well, things'll turn out just fine, right?"
Exactly how they will turn out...
★ Main Character ・・・ Reimu Hakurei
Shrine maiden of the Hakurei shrine, naturally possesses spiritual
power but lacks proper training. She wields the mighty Yin-Yang
Orb, but without skill often simply flails it about. Despite that,
thanks to her natural powers she's still quite skillful.
Reimu has trained to attack with ofuda, her spirit power, and
martial arts. These all proved against her enemies this time though
so she's a bit worried.
Currently she is the only person at the shrine.
★ Yin-Yang Orb ・・・ Hakurei Shrine's Greatest Treasure
A mysterious orb with an unnatural amount of spiritual
power. Perhaps a soul dwells within? It appears as though it
could be alive. Normally you cannot defeat spirits or
devilish powers without a weapon such as this.
■３．Starting the Game
Run GAME.BAT and the title screen will appear with ４ choices.
ＳＴＡＲＴ ・・・ Start the game.
ＣＯＮＴＩＮＵＥ ・・・ After a game over, start from the same stage.
ＯＰＴＩＯＮ ・・・ Adjust settings or access ＭＵＳＩＣ ＭＯＤＥ （details below）.
ＱＵＩＴ ・・・ End the game and return to Ｄｏｓ.
■４．Rules of the Game
●Regular Stages （Stages １～４、６～９、１１～１４、and １６～１９）
When the Yin-Yang Orb passes through the panels they will turn
over and disappear.
When all of the panels have been flipped over the stage is cleared.
If you continue to flip the panels without letting the Yin-
Yang Orb fall, you will score more points.
（A single panel can be worth anywhere from １００ points to a
maximum of ２５６０ points. There is a large difference between aiming
and not aiming, so try aiming! The number of panels you've flipped
in a row is displayed to the right of your score: ★００.）
Aditionally you will get an extra life every ４０００００ points.
You can have up to ７ lives at a time.
If you work at it, your lives will increase (greatly, at that) and
the game will become easier. Do your best and prepare for the bosses.
●Boss Stages （Stages ５、１０、１５、and ２０）
Every ５ stages a boss will appear. Only the power of the Yin-Yang
Orb can deal damage. （If you have ０ lives remaining your spirit
attack can also do damage.）
Bosses have various types of attacks but you can repel white
bullets with your exorcism or somersault or the start of an ofuda
burst. Also, if you hit a bullet directly with an ofuda you can
You cannot destroy lasers and missles. When you're cornerned
simply accept that you will have to bomb. Otherwise it may be
time to give up.
Fire, exploding bullets and the like are also not destroyable.
The basic flow of the game is to prepare during the normal stages
so that you're ready for the boss stage.
You can get quite a few extra lives during the normal stages
（by the time you've cleared the game, it's possible to get １２-１８ lives）
So even if the boss trashes you, don't give up and keep fighting!
●Players have their choice for movement controls.
Arrow Keys Numpad
← → ４ ６
Player movement is restricted to left and right but in screens like the title screen and high score
screen you can also go up and down.
●Ｚ key Throw an ofuda.
If you hit the Yin-Yang Orb it will be deflected.
Enemy bullets （only white ones） can be destroyed with this attack.
●Ｘ key Perform an exorcism.
Both the Yin-Yang Orb and enemy bullets can be deflected.
The faster the Yin-Yang Orb comes in the further it'll fly.
When you want to deflect the orb in a more shallow trajectory, quickly perform the exorcism
and catch the orb on your return strike.
For enemy bullets you can only deflect them at the beginning of the attack.
★Left + Right + Ｚ Key
Ｘ＋Ｚ ２ times ・・・ Spirit attack, a.k.a. bomb.
You can only bomb as many times as indicated by the spirit attack
counter in the upper part of the screen.
You will gain a bomb when you collect a bomb item or die.
When you perform this attack Reimu will become invincible and furthermore, enemy bullets
will be destroyed.
During regular stages, bombing will cause many of the panels to flip over.
Bosses will not take damage from bombs but the temporary invincibility allows you to use
this as an emergency dodge. When you have ０ lives left, bosses *will* take damage.
★Left or Right
Ｘ key ・・・ Slide in the direction pressed.
You can deflect the Yin-Yang Orb with the slide.
During a slide your hit box will shrink.
☆ Spirit Combo Attack
If you do the following during a slide...
Neutral （not pressing left or right）
Ｘ key ・・・ Zenshinshoutenshuu (lit. Driving Send-to-Heaven Kick)
Same direction key as the slide +
Ｘ key ・・・ Jump Kick
Direction key opposite the slide direction +
Ｘ Key ・・・ Shoutenshuu (lit. Send-to-Heaven Kick)
Ｚ Key ・・・ A disorganized ８ ofuda combo attack
If you press the button in a timely fashion during a Shoutenshuu,
the attack will chain up to ３ times in a row.
（You can't do this for the Jump Kick or ofuda burst.）
●ＥＳＣ key ・・・ Pause the game.
（While paused, you can return to the title screen.）
Ｐ ・・・ Increases your score. P items start at １０００ points and can go up to ６５５３０.
・・・ Increases your bomb count by one.

You can choose between ３ and ７ lives.
ｍ．ｔｅｓｔ・・・ Lets you listen to the music.
■８．The Shrine Maiden's Exorcism Hints
Here are some tips for high level play.
●First, don't rely on Reimu's exorcism attack too much.
You will often see players who use only exorcism. Clearing the game like this is rather
difficult. Because of the exorcism's ability to both destroy bullets and deflect, it is
often assumed that it is very strong, but the truth is you're quite vulnerable, and its
limited range makes aiming the Yin-Yang Orb difficult. Of course, because it is not
invincible, not being able to move during the attack is also a weak point.
Basically, the idea is to use Reimu's ofuda attack and sliding to manipulate the
Yin-Yang Orb. When confronted with a wall of bullets, that is a good time to use the
exorcism to clear a path.
●Use slides when corned with bullets.
Because your hit box is reduced so much during the slide, there will be times when you
think, "Hey, didn't I just get hit?"
●Some attacks may be difficult to manage without using the exorcism.
There are times when a wall of fast bullets will close in on you. This is when you should
focus on getting the right timing and using the exorcism to reflect them back.
●The boss killed me instantly and now I have ０ lives left.
When that happens you'll likely have a few bombs on hand. When you have no lives remaining
the boss will take damage from bombs. Use your bombs and you'll surely be able to defeat
●Sometimes there are safe spots during difficult attacks. Look for them.
But if the bullets are too fast or a laser is coming at you like the devil, it's time to use
●For attacks that are generated randomly, pray.
●For boss battles, stand your ground from where you can deflect the Yin-Yang Orb into them.
●About the Bosses
Stage ５ Boss Once you've memorized the fight it's pretty easy.
Stage １０ Boss
Magic World A little difficult if you can't remember how the fight goes.
Route The enemy is small and hard to hit so you need to have some skill aiming
the Yin-Yang Orb.
Hell Route You will need some skill to overcome the fast moving bullets.
Lasers, missles, and fire make this boss quite strong but he's short on
endurance and should be taken down quickly.
Stage １５ Boss
Magic World It doesn't seem like it prefers random movement. The first phase is the
Hell Route Quite a few bullets. You'll probably need some dodging skills.
Magic World Insanely strong in the beginning, but low life. After the boss transforms
Route use your bombs and take it down fast.
Hell Route Attacks are fairly strong and the last phase is the longest.
Use your bombs efficiently and dodge as best you can.
Touhou Ｐｒｏｊｅｃｔ Part １: How did you enjoy Touhou Rei'iden?
I （ＺＵＮ） thought I'd make a game set in a slightly strange world, revolving around the shrine maiden
Reimu Hakurei, called Touhou Ｐｒｏｊｅｃｔ. It's not your normal shrine maiden game （?）.
●Touhou Ｐｒｏｊｅｃｔ Works
The all-important Part １
Touhou Rei'iden ・・・ A one-screen action shooter （with puzzle elements）
featuring Reimu as she challenges the world of magic and hell. With a high
difficulty level and unique mechanics, recommended for gamers who aren't normal.
Simultaneously released Part ２
Touhou Fuumaroku ・・・ A vertical scrolling shooter that would surprise
even an angry bee queen featuring a small hitbox and tons of bullets.
With lasers, reflective bullets, and bullets with special effects
that angry bee queens don't possess, I thought it would have a nice visual impact.
Though it's called Part 2, story-wise it's not really connected. In the future I'd
like to make more games featuring Reimu's activities （?） in unrelated worlds.
