POLICE QUEST I(classic edition) pointcheck
by Stinger (kidfab@place2b.org)
Version 1.0 (updated 7/5/97)

This here is a pointcheck for the epic Police Quest I:In Pursuit of the
Death Angel. Sure, it's a technical dinosaur, but it was the beginning
of what is, in my opinion, the greatest computer game series in history.
Yeah, you heard me. Ultima? King's Quest? The heck with both of them.
Give me Police Quest any day. This 1987 game is still sold as part of
the Police Quest Collection, on sale from Sierra On-Line, which includes
all the Police Quest games to date. 

Make sure you realize: this is for the original no-mouse pixel graphics
version of Police Quest I. There is a newer version with nice VGA
graphics using the mouse. There is a pointcheck available for it; if you
can't find it in the same place you found this one, e-mail me. If you
need any help with either game, please e-mail me. My address is above.

You'll see at the bottom that if this pointcheck is followed exactly,
you can score 246 points, one more than the game has as the maximum
score. But a long, long time ago, I got 249 points. I don't know how,
but I did it. If there's any tricks you know that I've forgotten, I'd
love to hear them; please e-mail me. 

*NOTE* If used as a walkthrough, this will just confuse you. This is
intended to be used for someone who's already beaten the game and missed
some points, so they can go back and check what they've missed. If you
need hints, please send e-mail, I'd dearly love to help you.
