Gateway 2 - The Homeworld

by Legend solution by Veikko Danilas Although Gateway 2 can't quite reach high standards as set by it's predecessor "Frederik Pohl's Gateway", it is still enjoyable experience. It's a shame that Legend won't develop text - reduced graphics adventures any more. Graphical adventures tend to lack depth and interface gives too many puzzles away. Anyway, here is my vision of the Gateway 2. I hope that somebody finds it useful. And don't just follow my directions, try to do all kinds of things. Sometimes game responses are very enjoyable.
