Walkthrough for Paparazzi! Tales of Tinseltown

             (An Activision, Inc. and Museworthy, Inc. product)

Written 2/11/1996 by Michael Salsbury (salsbury@usoar.net)

The object of this game is to take photos of 24 celebrities in Tinseltown,
in some sort of compromising position. The photos can (but do not have to
be) sold to various publications, ranging from sleazy tabloids to
well-respected magazines.

Each "day" of game time has a "day" and a "night" period. Each period gives
you the chance to go to two different places in order to take photos. There
are less than 14 total days, so you have to take photos on many of your
trips out in order to complete your assignment. This is complicated by the
fact that some of the celebrities are only in certain places at certain
times on certain days. If you miss the right place and time, you miss the
photo.

Adding to the complication is the fact that "exactly" the right photo must
be taken of the celebrity in order to count. You may shoot up to two photos
at each location you visit, which makes your film very precious. (On my
system, I had an additional complication. The game is supposed to show you
the photos you took so that you can choose the best one. The photos were
not shown on my screen, so I had to click one and hope it was the best.)

To win this game, you must get into the following routine and follow it
carefully for each day of game play:

  1. Watch all programs on all channels of the TV, once every day and once
     every night (they do change). Some of the programs provide hints as to
     where the celebrities will be, and when. If you miss the hint, you'll
     miss the photo opportunity.
  2. Check your messages, once every day and once every night (they do
     change). The phone calls sometimes include tips to finding a
     celebrity, advice on game play, etc.
  3. When you have nothing else to do, go to Cheever's Camera Shop during
     the day and to the Blue Fug at night. These places abound with hints,
     tips, etc.

The following walkthrough contains the list of TV programs appearing on all
channels, the list of messages on your answering machine, and the places
you should go during each time period of each day. If there is no specific
place you should go, it will say "Go anywhere." which means you can visit
any location you like. You may find some amusing things going on at some
places, though probably nothing worth shooting.

Note that you also have to watch your reputation. If it gets too bad,
people won't be friendly with you, won't let you in places, etc. Your
reputation can be negatively affected by selling your photos at all in some
cases, and by selling them to sleazier publications who misuse them. You
can improve your reputation by selling certain photos to certain
publications, or by selling them to the FIB as evidence.

she's in if Otto finds out. If you sell photo, she will disappear on Day 14
and presumably gets killed along with Dink Winkelstein. Your reputation
undoubtedly suffers. If you keep photo and don't sell it, this doesn't
happen.

he'll say something about giving up and going home. He'll attach jumper
cables to his car and then accidentally electrocute himself. Get a photo of

stop him is beyond me.)
