The Golden Child

**Get Gold medals on all stages on HARD**

I'm making my way through this now, and have THREE MAJOR TIPS:

1. DON'T TRY TO DO THIS ON THE REPLAY FEATURE ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE!!! Do it in via the proper play-through. You can't save between stages if you go via the mobile phone, and trust me, when coming to do the Empireo levels, you'll need to take a break and realise that there just aren't enough hours in the day. I wasted 5 or more hours as I didn't realise this at first when doing the Empireo levels.

2. I suggest either saving your game at the start of each day in your play-through, or do this while doing a speed-play to get the endings you missed. Then work your way backwards through the levels, starting at the Empireo levels first. This is because they are so annoying and so hard, even with video guides, that you really would benefit with getting them out of the way first, and then making the path through the levels easier as you go through them. This may also mean you don't waste time doing the earlier ones, and then realising that they are just too hard later on and giving up.

3. Ensure you've drank the maximum amount of alcohol at the bar prior to going to sleep - this makes you move faster during the nightmare stages. I didn't actually do this, but the option is there if you want to take advantage of it.

Other useful things:

The Catherine Wiki is hugely helpful:

This has walkthroughs and video links to all levels on all difficulties. The problem is that when you come to do the Empireo levels, there is a lot of randomness in them due to the Boss attacks and the monster blocks. So even when following a guide, you'll still have lots of trouble.

I found that the video guide for 9-5 on the Catherine wiki wasn't actually a very good way of doing it, due to the randomness factor making it very difficult to follow successfully, and found an even better one (listed below).

This was also the case with 7-5, so I have posted the video to that as well.

The person who did those videos also has the rest of the Catherine levels available in each difficulty, so hopefully coupled with these two people's videos, you should get there!

Links to Catherine Hard mode video channels (and other Catherine videos):

Good luck and don't give up! You can do this, but you will need to put aside a good amount of time to going over and over the levels, and just taking a deep breath each and every time the game shafts you. Which it will. Often.
