Solutions - Hints
I can't get past the troll!
Just keep typing KILL TROLL WITH SWORD until he's dead. Sometimes you get killed, in this case restart.
How do I get down in the dome?
Tie the rope to the railing.
How do I open the dam?
Press the yellow button in the Dam Maintenance room, then you can turn the bolt on the panel with the wrench.
How do I get past the bat?
Make sure to carry the garlic (found in the sack at the beginning) with you, the bat hates it.
I went down from the smelly room and died! What gives?
The smell is from gas, if you carry the torch or lit candles in there, you will blow up. Make sure you don't have those, but the lantern instead.
How do I get the platinum bar?
Think about what happens when you say anything in that room... What's that effect called?
I still can't get the platinum bar!
Type ECHO, and the noise is gone.
What are the mirrors for?
When you touch them, they act as teleporters.
What do I do with the air pump?
Maybe you should find something that can be PUMPed UP. Perhaps something with a valve attached.
