Yes, in addition to the developer’s comments, the guide also has some great handmade dioramas of the levels in the game. They were created specifically for this guide, as viewing 3D levels in 2D helps players visualize what they need to do to complete the level. The manual is entirely in Japanese, but the visual language of the skillfully crafted sculptures is universal.
