|1. ゲームの進め方||1. How to Play|
Cirno the ice fairy had been going along without a care as usual.
|*ルール チルノを操作し、三妖精（サニーミルク、ルナチャイルド、スターサファイヤ）を撃破します。||*Rules You control Cirno, and attack the Three Fairies (Sunny Milk, Luna Child, Star Sapphire).|
|Cirno has the ability to freeze bullets.
Use this to your advantage to gain the title Strongest Fairy!
|2. チルノを操作する||2. Controlling Cirno|
|* 上下左右 チルノの操作
||* Arrows: move Cirno
|3. 画面を見る||3. Looking at the Screen|
Cirno's power gauge.
||* Ice Power
The power used in putting up an Ice Barrier.
||* Perfect Freeze When this is 100% or greater, you can use Perfect Freeze|
||* Frozen Area
Calculated from the number of frozen bullets.
||* Level indicator
The shot level.
|4. You can freeze enemy bullets!|
|"The enemies are just fairies; don't they have too many bullets?"
|However! This isn't enough to do Cirno in.
Cirno has a secret weapon.
|The ice attack only affects her immediate vicinity, but somehow it can freeze any bullet it touches.
You can even safely touch frozen bullets.
|You can continually freeze nearby bullets by aiming for areas where the barrage is thickest, and thus destroy the enemy's barrage.|
|If you just can't avoid the bullets, you should use your head instead of relying on Cirno's brains and find an effective freezing pattern!|
|5. Ice Power!|
|The Ice Barrier won't stay at full power forever. Even idiots can get tired.|
|Ice Power (the % gauge above your player icon) can't be used unless it's above 30%.|
|When it's close to 100%, you can use it continuously.
It will run out almost immediately at 30%.
|When you use the Ice Barrier, Ice Power will return to 0%.|
|How to renew Ice Power.
|6. Watch out for special bullets!|
|"Won't it be too easy if you just keep freezing bullets all the time?"|
|Well, now, sure your enemies are dumb, too, but they can plan ahead a little.
Watch out for the following attacks!
|* Burning fire bullets These bullets cannot be frozen. They'll fly right through your ice, so take care.|
Will go straight through ice and break it!
The fragments will come flying out when the ice breaks, and you can run into them like normal bullets.
|7. Ice is all about area!|
|Cirno likes freezing large areas of bullets that have scattered all about more than freezing big clumps of bullets close together.|
|Once the game screen becomes 100%, the percentage of the screen that's frozen will turn into a bonus.
You'll get a larger frozen area by waiting for the bullets to spread out before freezing them instead of just freezing them as soon as the enemy fires.
|The frozen screen area is initialized at stage 1.
Once it reaches certain set thresholds, the shot level increases.
|If you find yourself unable to beat the bosses, try actively freezing bullets in a manner that will increase the frozen area!|
|8. Other tricks!|
|Conditions for increasing Cirno's motivation
Increasing motivation by 100% is equivalent to getting an extra live.
|Conditions for increasing Perfect Freeze
|Perfect Freeze can freeze the entire screen.
It can even freeze flame bullets the Ice Barrier can't.
|9. I don't get it|
|This game is really hard, and the controls are really complicated, and the text is really difficult, and I just don't get it.|
|How should you try to clear it?
If you haven't gotten any hints yet, try watching the demo play.
|You can also read this explanation of the controls from the menu that appears when you pause the game.|
|The dialogue is hard to follow because they're fairies.
They'll probably have completely forgotten everything they said as soon as the fight is over.
