    Unless you are really stuck. I wouldn't recommend using the solve since the story of the game will be greatly hindered (and its a great story!). I haven't included what the entire plot is so as not to ruin it. So, use them when you need'em...

    SOLVING MEAN STREETS --------------------

    Although at first you are investigating into Carl Linsky's murder, things get deeper and eventually you find yourself on a mad plot to save everyone's brains (you'll understand as you play the game).

    Your primary objective then, is to gather up all eight passcards and passwords from eight scientists and use them to activate the destruct sequence on the "central" computer. Here are the locations of all the cards and any special things required to get them.

  1. ORANGE (Cal Davis). Password: CHECKMATE This is found in the box found in the ape's cage in Cal Davis' lab at NC 3720. To get it, you will need the pole found in Greg Call's lab (NC 8911). SECURITY: Move Rat Cages. Open Control Box. Turn Off Switch.
  2. PURPLE (Greg Call). Password: KNIGHT This is found on the shelf behind the vines on the large stalagtite in his lab at NC 8911. You will need the leather gloves found in Cal Davis' Lab (NC 3720). SECURITY: Move small Stalagtite. On/Off Button.
  3. BLUE (Carl Linsky). Password: BISHOP This is found in Carl Linsky's Lab/Warehouse at NC 4675. It is found in the Band Aids can inside the wall-mounted Cabinet. SECURITY: Open Bar. Move Shoebox. Turn Off Switch.
  4. RED (Ron Morgan). Password: STALEMATE This is found in Ron Morgan's Beach House at NC 6470. It is inside the fish tank containing the killer fish. You will require the fish food (to occupy them) which is found behind the plant in the upper left corner of the room. SECURITY: On/Off Button 3 on Coffee Table.
  5. GREEN (John Klause). Password: PAWN Find John at NC 7012 and ask for it.
  6. YELLOW (Sam Jones). Password: QUEEN Find Sam at NC 0021 and ask for it (you may have to beat or bribe it out of him).
  7. GREY (Larry Hammond). Password: KING Enter the Law and Order's Head Office at NC 5037. It should be in the safe (whose combination is in the closet inside the coat). SECURITY: On/Off Button at Desk. Open Closet. (It's in there somewhere! - Can't remember right now.)
  8. BLACK (Bosworth Clark). Password: ROOK This can be found in the Bus Station at NC 5194. You will require the key found in Frank Schimming's/Lola Lovetoy's Apartment (NC 4605) SECURITY: Move Art. On/Off Button.

    NOTE: Some of the security systems are only activated if you try to steal something valuable.


That's all it takes to solve it. But there is a lot of running around and a lot of interaction between characters in order to find the locations for most of these places and people (along with getting roughed up a little, getting sprayed with mace, and getting a whopping kick to the groin).

Though the company must have over estimated the difficulty of their game. What they judged as taking 20-40 hours, I completed in about 10 to 10 1/2. Though, the game wasn't easy... just didn't take THAT long.

I've also included the "Mean Streets Yellow Pages: Everyone you'll ever wanna meet in Mean Streets."
