BLUE FORCE pointcheck
by Evan Dickens (kidfab@place2b.org)
Version 1.1 (updated 4/12/97)

Here's the list of points possible in the Tsunami game Blue Force. This
is the game that Jim Walls did after producing Police Quests 1-3, and
personally, I think it's better than anything Sierra's ever put out.
It's probably the best police game ever. It's kind of short, but still,
the graphics are extraordinary and the story is very cool. I really wish
the CD-ROM had included voice, though. I don't see any difference
between it and the disk version, other than the extra audio tracks on
the CD. But I digress. Do not pass up a chance to get this game if you
like adventures. 

As I write this (02/22/97), Jim Walls is with Westwood Studios and
working on their upcoming epic Blade Runner. I certainly hope that when
he finishes that, he'll do another police game. I love his games.

*NOTES* 

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 wondering why
they missed so many points, so they can go back and check what they've
missed. If you need hints, please send e-mail. I will be very glad to
help you with any part of the game you need help with. My address is
kidfab@place2b.org

Also, send mail if you don't quite understand any item in this
pointcheck.

There are a lot of things on this list that you can do at different
points in the game, including the stuff with Grandma's computer, showing
the crate piece to Lyle, and getting the indian head nickel. The amount
of points given doesn't change. I suggest doing them in the order I have
them; I think it fits in better with the story.

And finally, I think I've got everything, but the game doesn't give a
maximum point number. This is more comprehensive than any walkthrough
you'll find for the game, but that doesn't mean I haven't missed
something. Please let me know if you find something that should be
added, or changed, or any typos or anything.
