Sleuthing Aventure by Perfect Entertainment
A solution by Lu Richardson
This is one of those investigative games in which you have to do a
lot of walking about and a lot of exhaustive talking with people,
out of which you get precious few clues. And spend most of your
time not knowing what's going on. You'll have to be very,
very patient and, above all, not get too bored when people bang on
Examine each location and everything available in it most carefully
and, when addressing people, talk first using the mouth option then
ask ALL the questions available in the diary - then try to talk once
more. If you've picked up any items, try them on people. Come back
to talk to everyone time and again.
When you get any item, examine it. Try combining items together or
entries in the notebook, or items on entries, even items and entries
on your surroundings. Examine the entries, too, they might give you
It doesn't really matter how you explore around, but certain things
have to be done in a certain order otherwise other things won't
happen. If you are at a location and you feel someone should be
there but isn't, that's because that someone will be there later.
This solution merely gives you an idea about what has to be done,
but do your own thing your own way. Make sure you are very thorough.

questions - you get a kind of two-sided conversation.
Go to the Office (watch). Go to the Cafe and speak to Carlotta.

man. Talk to Mrs. Fomes about it - you get the "pointy boots" entry,
and you can talk to the porter about it.
Visit Nobby and ask him about the "pointy boots". He tells you not
to mention it to the Merchants. Go and do just that and you will
find out more about the murder there. Go to Death and speak about
it to find out how the guy got his.
Now go to the Cellar, read the contents of the box of receipts and
use the crowbar on a barrel. You get inside the Palace. Change to
the wolf here at every location and listen at doors. At the double
doors you hear about another murder. Watch.

books is now about temples in Al Khali. Use the pendant on it and

Cemetery and show the list to Gaspode. Afterwards, go behind the
window - there should be two silouettes. Change to wolf and click
on the window to get a close up and overhear a conversation.

Go back to the Dysk and click on the Stage. Change to the wolf,
then back to a man and examine the wall under the stage. Use the
drawing of the eye symbol in your notebook on the Marks. In,

carrying on the peg. Watch. Talk to the Zombie till he gives you

entrance and click on the rubble. Now we are ready.
