Welcome to Countdown! A great new game by Access software...This is the first solve I've ever written, so bear with me through this...This will tell you ALL you need to know to win the game and get out of those impossible situations...Read On....

General Hints:
	Talk to everybody about everything (except the guards in the hall)! It matters which approaches you 	use to get certain information! If one approach doesn't work try another...It might!
	Save the Game Regularly! ALL THE TIME! I had over 30 saves by the end...Under different names of 	course!

You wake up in a hospital room, knowing nothing of where you are or how you got there...

1) Get the cup on the floor by the sink. Then Get the key at the base of the bed, by the Right leg. Then get the Wire above the radiator on the window screen!

2) Use the Cup to capture that pesky bug on the right wall! Now, talk to that shadow that passes by the window periodically. 

3) Offer him the bug and he will bring you some food! With the food is a knife...Use the knife on the window, and before you know it, you can climb out on the ledge...

Now your outside...Open the 2nd window on the right, and come on in! You need to do several things in the hospital before you can escape...I will list them out for ya...First off...The hospital is three stories, with a basement that has one door (which happens to be the door to escape!) You start out on the second floor! Without drawing a map, I will tell you generally where each item is...

Now my friend will take over, cuz I'm lazy as hell...Hope he can be semi coherent....

1)  Very Important!! at the top right side of the first floor there is a room with a CPR dummy that looks like you  get the dummy, go back to your room, use it on the bed. Otherwise the guard will notice that you are missing.  

2) then find the scissors the blanket and the hanger on the second floor. Find room with a picture hanging up. It's actually a cell. Move the picture,...Look a t the picture, look at the writing on the wall then Move the Pillow and get the Key! The Key to Escape...On the second floor, there is an awfully cold, naked guy behind some plate glass...Give im a blanket and talk to him a little...for some info...Use the intercom!

3) On the 1st floor, find the room with the dartboard. Get the scalpel from dartboard. There are many surgery rooms, one contains a flashlight in a toolbox. One you got the scalpel, find the sleeping doctor on the 1st floor, and use the scalpel on him! He talks, and you find out about, among other things, Barney Sachnussen, who escaped before! But, what is important to find out, is who is trying to get you! Using a certain list of commands, he will spill his beans to you...The commands are either PLEASANT HASSLE HASSLE or BLUFF HELP HASSLE HASSLE or something like that...Now....move the books and look at the safe behind the books! Move the painting on the wall and look at the writing! It is the combination to the safe!  Open the safe and get the cash!!!! Don't forget the car keys on the doc's desk...Read the Typewriter and papers too...

4) Go to the third floor, and OPEN the national geographic to read it! Get the crowbar from same room, and open the crate with Mountain climbin stuff...

4A) Also on third floor in room with lockers, open locker with the key you  found in your room, then move the towel on the bench, get another key, and open another locker and get the boots!

	Now go back to the bottom level. Open the door with the key from under the pillow on the 2nd floor, and enter the labyrinth!!!

Move the rocks, find the pickaxe, and enlarge the hole in the wall! DO NOT FORGET TO CUT WIRES IN THE SWITCHBOX TO STOP THEM FROM CALLING HELP!

Now go in to the hole...You are in a labyrinth...It's easy, you can find your way yourself...You come out in a Wine Cellar...

1) Greet your dead friend and look at the wine rack. Look at the plaque and then move the debris from the bottom right of the wine rack. There are roman numerals. Move the 1st bottle on the top row, then the 4th on the second row, 3rd on the 3rd row and 3rd on the 4th row! A secret exit appears...Don't forget to open the crates and get the wine there...

2) Go out through the new door. Goto rock on right, and climb! Use your Boots, or just use the goto command. You climb the cliff to the top. Use the Hook to scale the overhang! Now your on top and your out of the hospital...Look as the cars....Use the keys you got from the doctor, and your off! GOODBYE SANCTUARY!
