Sotsugyou Vacation (PlayStation: 1997.10.16) Mini-Game Hidden Commands Updated: 21 March 1998 Created: 18 February 1998 Disclaimer: I tried the hidden commands in the Mini-Game menu in the Natsu no Omoide menu in the main menu. I presume they'll work in the actual adventure. The Natsu no Omoide menu appears after the player clears the game once. Mini-Game: "Yabu wo tsukisusume" Hidden Commands: While the PS is loading the mini-game and before the instruction screen appears, hold L1+R1+Up+Triangle until the instruction screen appears. Results: Confirmed. When the game begins, the goal is visible in the map. Normally, the goal is visible only when it's one square from the protagonist. Mini-Game: "Watashi no omoi wa sao no saki" Hidden Commands: While the PS is loading the mini-game and before the instruction screen appears, hold L1+R1+Select+Start until the instruction screen appears. Results: Confirmed. All the fishes and items in the water are rare fishes/items that suit anyone. Don't see any UFO that Maina-chama wants, though the Sotsugyou Vacation Official Guide Book says Kappa-san and UFO-san are in the mini-game. Mini-Game: "Shinkei-suijaku tankentai" Hidden Commands: While the PS is loading the mini-game and before the instruction screen appears, hold L1+L2+Square+Cross+Select until the instruction screen appears. Results: Partly confirmed. All but two cards are 6. The remaining two cards are supposed to be 0. However, the Event squares aren't always six squares from the start. Mini-Game: "Ochi YASHI kakuritsu 100%" Hidden Commands: While the PS is loading the mini-game and before the instruction screen appears, hold L1+R2 (not L1+L2) until the instruction screen appears. When selecting the protagonist's kick power, press Select to apply maximum kick power. When the coconuts begin to fall, hold Select to automatically guard. Results: Confirmed. At maximum kick power, 44 coconuts fall. Hold Select in both rounds to auto-guard. Mini-Game: "Kojima no doukutsu" Hidden Commands: When choosing a cave to enter, press L1+L2+R1+R2 to automatically enter a snakeless cave. Results: Confirmed. The protagonist and heroine enter a snakeless cave regardless of where the pointer is. This hidden command doesn't work when the round begins with as many snakes as there are caves. Throw a rock first, then try the hidden command. Start button: After the player cleared the game once, he can press the Start button to skip the opening demo, introduction event, and dinner screen. Results: Confirmed. Eg, in the dinner screen, no message window appears and food instantly materialise on the tables. REFERENCES Sotsugyou Vacation Official Guide Book.
