In Space Quest I, you play as Roger Wilco, a janitor aboard the spaceship
Arcada. One minute, you're sleeping peacefully in a broom closet aboard the
spaceship, and then suddenly aliens take over the ship, steal the very
important star generator and kill every human on board. Wilco first has to get
off the Arcada before it explodes, and then must travel through a desert to the
spaceship Deltaur, where the vicious Sludge Vohaul is waiting for him.
Wilco stumbles out of the broom closet. West. West. East. Wait until the man
enters the room. Walk over to the man and type "look man". Walk over to the
monitor and type "look monitor". Type "astral bodies". Wait until the machine
gets the data cartridge and then type "get cart". West. West. "Search man".

You are in the pod which has crash landed on the desert planet Kerona.
"Unfasten belt". "Get kit". "Get out of ship". Walk to the front of the ship
and type "get glass". East. East. East. You should see a path leading up the
mountain. Go up the path until you get to a bridge. Cross the bridge but stop
behind the rock at the other side. After a while, a spider droid should come
down out of the sky.
Your aim is to crush the spider droid. Type "push rock" but don't hit return
just yet. Save the game. When the spider droid is between the two green plants,
hit return. The rock should have crushed the spider droid. If not, restore the
game and try again. When you have crushed the spider droid, continue up the
path until you get to an area with a broken arch. Walk through the middle of
the arch, and you will go down on a secret platform.
After entering the cave, walk up to the small rock and type "get rock". West to
enter a room with a grating. Walk along the top of the grating to avoid the
green blob, Walk over to the geyser and type "put rock in geyser". North. Go to
the back of the room, and then go west. Walk close to the beams, and then type
"hold glass in beam". Follow the path that was previously blocked by the beams.
Save the game. Walk carefully past the acid drops. "Turn dial on gadget". East.
A big head will appear, which says that you have to destroy a beast called Orat
who is living on the surface or he won't let you past. The big head will return
you to the surface to go on with your quest. Follow the path down to the
bottom, noticing that the bridge is becoming more and more unsteady each time
you cross it.
North. "Open kit". Type "throw water" but don't press return. Save the game.
East. Press return and Orat will be blown into pieces (There is another way to
defeat the spider droid: See easter egg 3 in the easter eggs section). Walk
over to the part of Orat and type "get part". West. South. Follow the path up
all the way until you get to the broken arch. Go down on the secret platform,
and get to the big head again, remembering to avoid the blob at the grating and
the acid drops.
After returning to the big head, type "drop part". A door opens. North. Walk up
to the slot and type "put cart in slot". Note the password '6858'. "Get cart".
Walk over to the skimmer and type "get in skimmer". Save the game. "Turn key".
You've now taken off in your skimmer and must play a sub-game. Steer left and
right avoiding the asteroids. Whenever you get to a safe spot where you see no
asteroids, save the game. Eventually, you will arrive at Ulence Flats.
"Get key". "Get out of skimmer". A man should come along and ask you if he can
buy your skimmer for 30 buckazoids. Ignore him. Enter the bar. Leave the bar.
The same man will come along again but he will ask you if he can buy your

this is not an easy task as the arcade machine is random. So save the game
first, and then bet $3 on every go. This will take a while, but when you have
$250 the machine should break. Don't worry, as this is all the money we need.
West. North. East. Enter Droids-B-Us. Follow the person upstairs and walk up to
the white robot. "Buy robot". Exit Droids-B-Us. South. West. West. North. "Buy
ship". "Climb ladder". "Push button". The droid will ask you what sector you
want to go to. Type "HH". The ship will now take off.
"Wear jetpack". "Get out of ship". Float your way over to the door and type
"open door". Enter the door to arrive in a place with an unopenable door.
Fortunately, there is a droid going in and out of the door, so when it comes
out of the door, quickly rush in before the door closes. Walk over to the chest
and type "open chest". "Get in chest" to be carried to another room. "Open
chest". Walk over to the washing machine and type "open washing machine". "Get
in washing machine".
