The history of SHU

Below, the levels included in the storyline of the Shu dynasty.

Yellow Turban Rebellion

Begin the battle by proceeding west, clearing the enemy officers in the area, then proceeding to the center. Then move towards the main camp, locating the officer. Get rid of it and continue north, moving in the direction that will be marked on the map. You will get a message about a group of farmers, exactly in the center of the map. Defeat the officer nearby to retrieve them.
Move to the west side, ordering Zhang Bao to use his magic to locate two portals. Have them both open, so that the play area can be "occupied" by some troops who "shoot" ice and fire. Then move to the east side of the map, ordering Zhang Liang to cause pieces of ice to descend towards the ground.
The nearby portal to Zhang Jiao will open. Kill Zhang Yao to complete the battle.



Battle of Hulao Gate

Move south, along one of the three trails in the area, moving towards the base visible to the south-east, where Yuan Shu is located. Make your way forward to retrieve the items to be provided to Sun Jian. Beware of Hua Xiong that will appear from the south of you, try to eliminate him immediately to avoid problems during the following moments.
Move along the path that leads west. Go up the stairs, jumping inside the base and defeating the officers to stop the flow of arrows. As you enter the next base, Zhang Liao will appear. After defeating him, you will locate some catapults at the top of the hill to the east: destroy them immediately, as the hill will be used to open the portal.
Kill the officer inside, taking control of the base. Move on to the next officer to take control of the catapult. Use it to destroy the two opponents on either side of the Hulao portal. The portal will open, so we recommend that you ignore Lu Bu and continue with the battle. Moving north, you will find yourself facing Diao Chan. Try to avoid any interaction with her, then defeating the officer visible near the portal, so as to open the path that leads to Dong Zhuo. Also get rid of the officer guarding the last portal, finally Dong Zhuo to totally end the battle.



Defense of Xu Province

Defeat the officers visible inside the castle first, then the next group in the southwestern chambers, so you can "activate" the nearby boulder. Then repeat the procedure, so that the boulders begin to fall from the dragon-shaped statues, visible along the path.
It will now be necessary to separate Liu Bei's forces into three different groups. You will have to order Zhang Fei to follow the nearby units of the opponents, starting to build some catapults, with the aim of destroying all the mechanisms in the shape of a boulder. Some reinforcements will therefore come from the north and west. Cao Cao's troops will therefore beat a retreat.
At this point, Guo Jia will appear and tell one of the units in the area to try and set the castle on fire. The same "path" will therefore be carried out by two other units of different kinds, but always in the same area.
If both opposing units manage to reach the castle, it will be set on fire and the whole group of adversaries will march towards Liu Bei. In any case, it will be necessary for you to defeat all remaining opponents and proceed to Guo Jia to finally complete the battle.

Disturbance at Guandu

Take possession of the two bases west of your current location. Open the nearby portals, then defeat the other officers inside. Defeat the rest of the officers in the area as well, waiting for Yuan Shao's orders: he will order you to help the subjects near Yanjin, in the center of the map. Head to the area.
You will therefore be asked to head towards Baima. You will therefore have to head to the area. Once you arrive, you will find yourself in front of Guan Yu. Together with him, you will have to flee the battlefield. So start moving west. Once you reach the south gates of Baima, they will close and you will have to fight Xiahou Dun, Xu Huang and Xiahou Yuan. Defeat them and keep moving towards the "vanishing point" to the west.
You will find yourself facing another group of officers along the way: Guo Jia, Cao Ren and Zhan Liao. At the vanishing point, it will deactivate and you must defeat Jia Xu in order to proceed.



Battle of Xinye

Proceed forward and take control of the east and west bases near the starting play area. Cross the various bridges, reaching the "Eight Gates" area. Once inside, follow Xu Shu's directions, moving along the path that will be shown on the screen.
After defeating the group of officers, you will have to finish the next group as well. Having cleared Cao Cao's troops, you will need to head to the sleeping dragon. Cross the bridge marked on the map. Both Yueying and another group of troops will appear in the area. Having defeated them, you can head to the dragon's residence area. Once in the area, the battle will end.

Battle of Changban

Together with Liu Bei, you will have to proceed towards the Changban bridge. Once in the area, you will go and join up with Liu Bei's troops again. A group of Cao Cao's helpers will then charge towards the bridge, causing an opening. Unfortunately, you will not be able to continue the work: since Adou, Liu Bei's son, was left near the northern part of the village, you will have to head to the area to go and rescue him.
Once in this play area, you will have to defeat the two officers and locate the nearby woman in order to save Adou. Return to Liu Bei. Defeat the officers visible near the ambush, then return to the bridge.



Liu Bei's march will be blocked by an ambush. Stop near the bridge, pushing back the forces that will move towards you. Repel the two waves of opponents, then head towards Liu Bei along the path chosen for you. When you get close to Liu Bei, you will be ambushed again - destroy the catapults immediately, in order to minimize the damage suffered by the farmers. So go on to finish the neighboring officer as well. Jump down, waiting for Zhang Liao to appear. Get rid of it, having Liu Bei proceed through the portal and allow you to complete the battle.


Battle of Chibi

First defeat the three officers who will try to attack you. A ship from the west will meet you (more precisely, from the altar visible to the west), containing Sima Yi. Get rid of it, then board the ship south of the altar, heading towards Cao Cao's main fleet. Move north again, reaching Pang Tong. Defeat Zhang Liao to finish him off.
You will now have to proceed to Xu Shu's residence area to defeat him. Once this is done, all of Cao Cao's ships will be promptly destroyed. In these moments, we recommend running in circles and defeating the various officers, until you are told to go "get" Cao Pi. When he is gone, you will have to start finishing all the rest of the officers as well, moving slowly towards Cao Cao. He will then flee south, using his boat. Continue to proceed; as soon as you reach it, you will have to defeat Zhang Liao and Xu Zhui to complete the battle.

Battle of Chengdu

The first objective in the battle will be to take possession of the castle of Fu and the training areas of the soldiers of Mianzhu: these are the two bases visible along the south side of the map. Also get rid of the group of officers on the path to Mianzhu. Repeat the procedure for Castle Fu, taking possession of it. At the same time try to finish Liu Jun, who will come from the north.
A group of officers will arrive in the play area starting from the west path. Position yourself in the center of the map and hit them repeatedly to finish them off. The following objective will be to take possession of Luo's castle: head to the area and get rid of the officers inside it, thus recovering the castle in speed. As soon as Liu Bei moves towards the central area, you will be ambushed and the portal in the area will close. If / when you find yourself outside, you will have to move repeatedly in a circle and try to penetrate from the north. In case you are coming from the right, you will have to try to defeat the nearby group of troops, causing the drawbridge to descend, so that Shu's reinforcements can arrive in the area. They will bring catapults with them, which can be used to destroy the central portal leading to Chengdu.
Once inside Chengdu, both Ma Chao and Ma Dai will appear. Start fighting with them. When you are about to defeat them, they will join your army, causing panic within Chengdu. The nearby portal will also open. Defeat all the officers nearby, then make your way to Liu Zhang to start a fight. Having defeated him too, the battle will be completed.

Battle of Mt. Dingjun

The first objective will be to take possession of the two bases at the foot of Mount Dingjun. To do this, you will have to defeat the officers inside. So move along the west side of the map, getting rid of the officers along the way. At the top, eliminate Zhang He to take possession of Mount Tiandang. Go up the stairs, locating the circle on the ground. Position yourself inside it, pressing the switch to make your character proceed downwards, arriving inside the mountain. Get rid of the officers nearby to take control of the area.
When you have taken possession of Dingjun, you will have to go to Cao Cao to defeat him. The procedure for doing this will first see you move to the barracks just south of Cao Cao, where you will find a group of officers. Eliminate them, then continue to Cao Cao to complete the battle.

Battle of Fan Castle

Get rid of the enemies outside the castle. When Wei's attack is complete, you need to head to the escape point on the southeast corner. Meanwhile, it will also be necessary to repel the enemy ambush, and then defeat Niu Jun.
You will then be informed about the death of Guan Ping. Then continue to the southeast corner, where some Wu officers will arrive, including Lu Xun and Lu Meng. We now recommend that you take advantage of your accumulated "anger". A certain amount of enemies will then move west, as a new "vanishing point" will appear in the southwest.
When your allies reach the portal, it will close and Mi Fang will betray you. To open the gate, it will therefore be necessary to defeat both Mi Fang and Fu Shiren. Do this, then proceed north, aiming to reach the checkpoint in the west. Beware of the ambush that will come from the south, you will forcibly come across it along the way.
Once these opponents are defeated, you can proceed further. Xiahou Dun will appear in the area, closing the portal to the north. Get rid of the officers who arrive in the area, causing the portal to open. Continue south. Get rid of Cao Ren to end the battle.

Move to first base, taking control of it and defeating the officer in the area. Proceed to Tianshui Castle. Destroy the catapults, then eliminate the officers in the area.

The goal is to escort the siege ramps to their destination. However, you will have to pay attention to the Wei soldiers who will drop the boulders from the top of the castle. After some time, an underground passage will become visible. You will have to use it to proceed towards the inside of the castle. Before doing so, we recommend that you get rid of all of Liu Xei's forces, so that they cannot follow you towards the inside of the passage.

Go back to where you came from, taking control of the base to the north. Once this is done, continue west, then south, making it possible to arrive at Wu's main camp. So get rid of both Zhou Tai and Sun Quan, completing the battle.

Battle of Dingjun

Jump into the sea, freeing yourself from the officers. So pay attention to the west side of the map, from which Huang Zhon should come: as soon as you see him arrive, you will have to head towards Mount Tiandang, north-west of Dingjun.
But Dai will take care of placing the siege ramps in the area. You can now head to the main camp from the north. Zhao Yun will also try to reach the area from the north, we recommend that you eliminate him too.
When you get close to the main enemy camp, you will find Ma Chao waiting for you in front of the main portal. Get rid of it, then proceed straight to Zhuge Liang to complete the battle.

Battle of Fan Castle

Jump into the water, starting to swim towards the castle, dodging the oncoming boulders. Although Lu Meng and Wu arrive, you will be ambushed by Shu. You will now have to eliminate the officer in their command: move along the east exit, exiting the castle of Fan. Move in the direction indicated. When Zhou Cang is dead, you will be ambushed by Guan Suo and Wei Yan.
Continue now towards the inside of the barracks. Move south, then in circles, so as to gain access to the inside of the barracks. Guan Xiang will start throwing rocks at you; you will have to defeat him quickly to interrupt the "flow" of rocks.

Pang De will also be isolated in the northwest corner and will need to be rescued by you - head to the area as soon as you get the chance.
Move to the west side of the map, then south. You will be interrupted by closing the portal. So wait for the rams to destroy the portal, it is the only way that will allow you to proceed. So begin to finish off the enemies in the area. Finally, the children of Guan Yu will arrive, including Guan Suo, Guan Ping and Guan Xing. Quickly get rid of it, continuing towards the portal that leads to Guan Yu. Defeat Yinping to cause the portal to open. So get rid of Yu to complete the battle.

Battle of Chibi

Start the battle by freeing yourself of the enemy officers north of the main camp. Xu Shu will talk about the plan of the enemies, which is to "link" various ships together. He will also ask you to follow him to the target zone. You will find Pang Tong there. Defeat him to proceed.
Now continue towards the ship, awaiting the surprise attack of the enemy - you will have to deal with Huang Gai and Han Dang. Then continue towards the Cai Mao residence area. Defeat him to get him back to Mei.
Board the ship to the south, which after a short time will start moving towards the east side of the map. Get rid of the enemy officers in the area, heading towards the main camp. Approach the altar to defeat Zhuge Liang. Keep fighting towards the main enemy camp, defeating the officers you will find along the way. At the front portal, get rid of Ding Feng. Go inside and get rid of Sun Quan as well to end the battle.

Campaign for Jianye

Move north, clearing the west side of the enemies. The next objective will be to take control of the three bases in front of Jianye. First approach the base in the far west, causing Gan Ning to appear. Get rid of it and continue east.
Take the three bases, move on to try and check the castle to the south. After you defeat the enemies, the main portal of the castle will open and you can proceed inside. Unfortunately, you will be ambushed by Taishi Ci and Han Dang.
Destroy them and their underlings, then continue to the main castle. Having reached it, you will immediately have to deal with Sun Shangxiang and Huang Gai. Defeat them by opening the main portal. Xue Zong will be inside waiting for you, try to finish it in speed. Lu Xun will therefore order the closing of the gates, and you will have to deal with him and Lu Meng together with the Qiao sisters. We recommend terminating the two sisters first, thus causing the portal to reopen. Proceed forward, then quickly backtrack to defend your main camp. Get rid of Lu Xu and Lu Meng, then go back to the castle.
Begin to proceed along the only path available, paying attention to the traps. After defeating Zhou Yu, move to Sun Quan and defeat Zhou Tai as well, causing the portal to open and the battle to end.

Uprising at Xuchang

Move south, ending the officer who will appear in the area. Move to the next room, clearing the soldiers to open the portal. So get rid of the three sorcerers nearby. The three ghost soldiers will disappear.


Examine the south room, causing a ghost version of Cao Cao to appear. Defeat him to proceed. Wang Zhon will appear again, in the area just to the east: head in that direction, knocking him out to locate Zuo Ci. Together with him, you can reach the throne room. Returning to the previous room, ghost versions of Dong Zhuo and Yuan Shao will appear.
Get rid of it, then Lu Bu will appear in the small room as you proceed north. Eliminate him, then do the same for the soldiers who will appear near the courtyard-shaped area. You will then be able to reach the last of the portals that leads to Zuo Ci. He will create some "duplicates" of himself: focus your attention on the "real" enemy, so that you can easily defeat him, aiming and hitting him repeatedly.

Pursuit at Nanjun

Your initial goal will be to prevent Liu Bei from reaching the vanishing point. From the initial fork, proceed north, locating the officer. Then continue along the path below, where Zhao Yun will be present. Finish it, then continue forward beyond the second officer, so as to get directly to the second portal. Go down, then prepare to have to endure a fire-based attack, launched by Chen Zhen.
To locate it, you will have to go directly to the area completely "taken" by the fire. Once this is done, you can end it by causing the nearby portal to open. The rest of Wei's army can then join you. Now continue along the path that proceeds to the south, arriving near a group of catapults (four). Destroy them all, then get rid of Liao Hua to cause the fire to stop. Proceed along the only path available, going through the central area, pushing back the officers in the area. The portal will open, revealing also the presence of a ladder.
Climb the ladder, reaching the next base, where you will locate Yueying. Overcome it, then aim at the following group of officers, trying to finish them in speed. Once in the vicinity of Liu Bei, listen to his views, and then defeat the three officers in the vicinity.

Battle of Baidi Castle

As the battle begins, your camp will be completely burned down. You will have to locate the officers in charge of the attack, and defeat them one by one. We recommend starting from Liu Yin, located slightly to the west, and then moving on to the next one, locating to the north-west.
Having finished both of them, you will have to head towards Zhao Yun, who will surely have started his charge towards the main camp. Get on the boat to the north, and then send it off. After a while it will stop, exactly in the middle of the route. Use the catapult to destroy the tree on the beach. Once this is done, Guan Ping will jump on the boat. Take it out, then jump down and move to Jian Yong in the center of the map.
You will find yourself in front of a group of officers. Use the catapults to destroy the main portal. Enter the castle of Baidi. Some rock "throwers" will appear - we recommend avoiding their shots and not fighting, aiming instead to reach your opponents on the opposite side, using the ladders on the side. You will therefore have to complete a fight against the last great group of opponents. Once this is done, the last portal will open. So finish Liu Bei to completely complete the battle.
