    Ok, all you boys and girls. Cool game here. Maybe Sierra will make their games better now to catch up with this one. This is for the NAUGHTY level, Expert - Very Difficult level. I can be reached via CelerityNET, or by calling my board - Dead Man's Hand / 503.288.9264.

    Main Control Room

  1. You start out in the main control room of your ship. Look at viewscreen. DOWN. Get the binoculars off of the poster. Open the refrigerator. Get the glowing green burger. DOWN. Get the timer module off of the table. Get the rebreather off of the floor next to the table. UP. Climb up the ladder to get outside of your ship.
  2. Now you're swimming around. RIGHT. You should see a dead fish on the ocean floor. Pick it up. Put the burger in the fish. DOWN. RIGHT. A purple tentacle will come out of a small hole and eat a fish. Throw the fish at it. Wow, you killed it! Now you can go into the cave. RIGHT. UP. You'll climb out of the water.
  3. Now you're on land. RIGHT. UP. On the lower left corner you should see some leaves sitting in a pile on the ground close to the pit. Pick them up and put them on the pit. A trap! How ingenius! LEFT. Go into the voodoo hut. Pick up the poison darts off of the table. DOWN. LEFT. LEFT. A monkey will clock you on the head with a fruit, dance on your chest, and take your binoculars. We'll fix him later. LEFT. You'll see a woman doing laundry outside. Talk to her. Tell her you're a real man. She'll have you answer some questions. Tell her you are shipwrecked here. When she asks you about the torque wrench, say "Tool to measure angular force". Then she'll ask you about where to put the forks on a table. Say, "They go wherever they land when I throw them." She'll invite you inside to show you a good time. When the guards are all done watching you, you'll be able to walk around. Grab a twinkifruit from the sack on the right. DOWN. RIGHT. RIGHT. RIGHT. Put the twinkifruit on your trap. A big fat bouncing cavewoman will come and fall in. Now you can get past her, otherwise she eats you. RIGHT. There's a plant shoot lying on the ground on the right. Pick it up and put the poison darts in it. Now use the blowgun to hose the monkey down. He'll fall down and run off. Get your binoculars. Told ya we'd fix him! LEFT. UP. UP. Get the two bones lying next to the skull. Climb up the ladder and use the binoculars to look north. A guard will punch in a number sequence and teleport away. WRITE IT DOWN. UP. Enter the teleporter. Punch in the number sequence, then hit the smiley face.

    Hope you all enjoyed this very straightforward solve. Didn't want to bother with humor. Just wanted to get past the game and delete it. 13 more megs free now. Look for more products from me in the future, including: - More character editors - Any solves and docs I may happen to do - The Celerity Master Editor program, which will have: - User Editor - File Editor - Protocol Editor - Any other features you'd like to see (just tell me) The whole point of this is that there are too many seperate utilities, and it'd be nice to have one complete package.

    Greets go to: Space Homey - Thanks for getting me unstuck on the bones! ICS - Give me a greet, and you'll get one back! Rifleman - It's cool with me now. INC dudes - Whassup?
