VULTURE PITS:
So the vulture keeps having you for lunch?
........
Got anything he might be interested in eating?

........
So that did not exactly work as planned.
........
Do you think a little seasoning would help?
.........
'Course ya do!
.........
Have you been to the forest?
.........
Have you met a fairy?
.........
Use the fairy dust on the rotten meat and throw it in.
.........
You will then be able to get the talon.


HOW DO YOU GET BACK AFTER GOING TO CANUK'S SHACK?
HOW DO YOU GET BACK TO THE LIGHTHOUSE?
The easiest way to handle these questions is to answer them both
at the same time! 
........
That is a pretty good hint!
........
Did you talk to Canuk about vulture's?
........
Did you ask Canuk about the whistle?
........
Did you try blowing the whistle?
........
So you got the vulture but you need a little more.
........
Did you find anything at Canuk's shack to help?
........
Did you check out the blueprints?
........
Does it look familiar?
........
Did you check the door?
........
Pry off the magnet with the sword from Canuk's door.

take you anywhere you want to go.


                                                         Page 12:

THE LIGHTHOUSE AGAIN:

........
You might want to review you tape recorder.
........
Maybe something you found at the ruins after you completed the
puzzle?
........
Illumynite.

Have you checked outside?
........
Maybe you can do something with that rail?
........
I don't want to string you along.
........
Try the rope.
........



Remember what the keeper said about the rope?
........
Met anyone that was all tied up?
........
Maybe around a boat?
........
Did you talk to Ben?
........



Maybe you could use something with that rope?
........
Maybe something to bring it back?
........
Maybe something like a boomerang?
........
Try the talon.














                                                         Page 13:

.........
Do you know of a place to use that somewhere?
.........
'Course ya do!
.........
Did they check out your sword?
.........
That's good.

Did you find you way through the mines?
..........
If you make a wrong turn you go right back to where you started.
..........
Do you already know that?
..........
And I bet you know what is coming next.
..........
'Course ya do!
..........
For the exact way through
...........
L,R,S,R,L,R,S,R,L,L,R

                                                         Page 14:

ANCIENT RUINS:
Have you found out who gets what yet?
........
Have you read up in the mayor's office?
........
Did you notice a difference about one of the statues?
........
Maybe the one in the center?
........
Maybe you should leave that one alone?
.........
You cannot give him anything.
..........


So you have given all the six statues something 
and it still does not work?
..........
Are you having a problem with balance?
..........
Maybe you need to give a little more?
.........
One of the statues gets two items.
.........
Here is the items in order from left to right:
.........
Witch's stick
Talon
Thermozz
(Center statue gets nothing)
Box and helmet
Sheild
Tele-orb


You know to put the disc in there, don't you?
.........
'Course ya do!
.........
It will have to be complete first!
.........


SO NOW HOW DO I GET BACK?
There is another way around.
.........
Have you checked out your map lately?
.........
How are you going to get back there?
.........
Click where you want to go on the map and you will be there!

                                                         Page 15:

CITADEL OF ZORK:
Have you found it yet?
.........
Have you found a place you cannot pass?
.........
Try the Cliffs of Depression and turn around you will have an
arrow to the left.
.........

So how can you break through that blocked path?
.........
Do you remember what Canuk said?
.........
Do you suppose it is an illusion?
.........
Do you know anything that can break illusions?
.........
What about all those pieces you have been picking up?
.........
Throw the disc at the blocked path?
.........


You will have to have the disc re-forged for it to work.
.........
In that case you need to go back to the ancient ruins.
.........

HOW DO YOU GET PASSED THE ORC?
Maybe it would be best if he did not see you?
.........
You did figure out the puzzle from the ruins, didn't you?
.........
So did you make the potion?
.........
Well have a drink.
.........

Have you beat up the orc yet?
.........
Maybe there is another way?
.........
Maybe you should check to files on hellhounds?
.........
Maybe man's best friend can help?
.........
Play the tape of Alexis to the orc.






                                                         Page 16:

WHAT ABOUT THAT BRIDGE?
Maybe you should lighten your load?
.........
Between downloading and uploading you should get it.
.........
You will give up almost all of you items to get across the
bridge.  All except the photos, recorder, etc.
.........
You might want to save before you go inside.
.........
And brush up on your survivor skills.
.........




You will have to beat Morphius at the game.
There is no real hints here because of the variables.
.........
Just remember how the game is played.
.........
AND REMEMBER YOU CAN PASS!!
.........

And you finally get to meet Rooper!
.........

Use flying disc of Frobozz to crack wall of illusion.
All the disc pieces are hidden.

The rats are in the boat the next time you go to use it.

You need to be invisible to get passed to orc.
