Inca

Fighting Tips

Asteroids.
Navigate through the asteroids to reach the  planet. Don't fly too
close to the asteroids. The gravitation of an asteroid will alter
your course. You can shoot the asteroids, but it's not necessary.
Keep your accelerator at full speed and dodge the asteroids as
best you can.

Starship Canyon Battles.
Keep a close  watch on your control panel and  your navigation
instruments. You must destroy  the starfighters that  are in front
and behind you.  You have to kill them before they reach the end
of the trench or you will die. Stay at full speed and keep firing
at the ships in front of you.  If you pass starfighters, slow down
and  let them get just in  front of you. Otherwise, they  will
attack
you from behind.

Ship to ship dogfights.
Listen to your  ship computer voice (with a  DAC sound card) for
tips  on where the enemy is, target locking, and when  to fire.
Watch for blips on your radar. Be sure  to save your  torpedoes
for combat  against the large  ships that will appear later  in
the game.  Once you use  up your torpedoes,  they are gone for
good  and are  not replenished.  The large  ships found  later in
the game are nearly  impossible to defeat without them.

Spanish Warrior Mazes.
The mazes can be complex or simple.  Click on the right mouse
button after each move and note your position and direction. Watch
out for Spanish warriors. Maps of the mazes  are available. Please
write or FAX  the Sierra hint department to receive maps on  the
mazes. Please check your Inca  game manual for the address and FAX
number.

Tips on fighting Spanish warriors.
Aim your icon  on the warrior's blasts first,  then fire at the
warrior.  It is best to hit the warriors when they turn the side
of their body toward you. When they face you, their armour
protects them.

The First Power - Time

What is the solution to the first puzzle - The Geoglypth?

coloured balls in your  inventory. Click on the hole in the ground
in front of the door. This will change the golden sun on the left.
When  the lines on  the golden sun  align with the  symbol on the
ground, pick up the golden  sun and put it in the geoglypth's
large hole in the floor. With the golden sun in place, put the red
ball in the left hole, the green ball in the middle hole and the
blue ball in the right hole. Pick up the sacred tumi and click on
the door to leave. You will enter the Jewel of Time maze.

will unite and form an egg. Next,  continue to click on the left
statue, producing coloured balls until one appears that is NOT the
same colour as  the first egg (if  you have a blue  egg, you must
get  a red ball and vice versa).  If the coloured ball  is the
same colour  as the egg, just  let the ball pop and click on the
left statue again to produce another. Once you have a
suitable  ball, immediately  click on  the  right  statue. A  red
ball  will be generated  and another  egg will  form. After  you
have  a blue  and red egg in place, click on the  vase. You will
return to your ship  and battle your way to an asteroid base.

Click each of the tumi blades  on the stone. Then click  the
crystal on the stone.  The large crystal in  the upper right-hand

different  colour and tone. You will need  to match each colour
with the corresponding colour  on the floor. The colours are
encoded by the following equation: o  BLUE=YELLOW o RED=PURPLE o
GREEN=GREEN. For instance, if  you see the large crystal blink
BLUE then GREEN you would click on YELLOW then GREEN on the floor.

the ceiling. After you correctly match 3  consecutive patterns, a
door will open up in the far end of the room and you can exit.
