LITTLE BIG ADVENTURE 2
Arcade Adventure by ADELINE
A solution by Lu Richardson
It is important in this game to talk to everyone you meet (even
animals), time and again. The characters will give you all sorts of
The more time you take to explore everywhere and everything with
care, the more you'll get out of it. The most unsuspected items
will yield things you need and, what is more, when you leave a place
and return to it later, those things will be regenerated.
You will find that the most vital point of all is to stay alive.
For that reason, you must try to keep the red line which represents
your hit points as full as possible. Fortunately, those little
hearts which replenish it are very abundant.
Also, you start with two clover boxes. It is imperative that you
find as many as you can, and that's not easy - plus they are not
regenerated. Clovers are also important and equally well hidden;
but once you find one, at least they will be regenerated if you
leave the place and come back. Since all these things which keep
you alive are not all that easy to get when you most need them, it's
worthwhile to save before you try something which might lead to
death and take the trouble to reload if it does, thus sparing your
Combat is constant and difficult, specially if two guys attack you
at once. It is therefore vital that you find a good place to
shelter, if you can, and let fly with the magic ball. Remember
that, if you hit somebody, both he and you will move slightly, so
that you'll have to readjust the next shot. It is best to change at
once to Aggressive mode - if unable to hit your enemy with the ball,
close in and batter him. However, each fight requires different
strategies and I am sure you will find the best for yourselves. The
cardinal rule, though, is that you attack single enemies with the
ball and fight them in Aggressive mode if they come in pairs.
The magic ball, by the way, is useful for hitting inaccessible
levers and for retrieving unreachable items. Each mode gives you a
different range, so if you can't hit something in Sporty, for
instance, try Discreet.
For the purposes of describing my solution, and in order not to
repeat myself, I will take it for granted that you will speak to
everyone, search everywhere (even corners or places hidden from
view), get all the items to be got and save often. I will only
mention the most important things you have to do.
Practically all the small creatures you will find are hostile, and I
will leave you to either kill them or evade them (you can also try
to run away from people, but this is not always possible).
N is the top centre of your screen, NE the top right hand corner, E
the right centre of the screen, and so on, clockwise. I also use
"left" and "right" if this helps me to describe the position better;
but I am afraid these directions are fairly loose, particularly
since the perspective changes all the time. I hope that you will
understand what I am saying.
Consult the holomap often to guide yourself to the places you need
to visit, which are often clearly marked with a large red arrow if
you've talked to the right person. You will also find the signposts
One of the most difficult things in this game is the jumping around
you have to do (quite a lot of it, actually). The important thing
is to be correctly aligned with the place you want to jump to;
changing the perspective, when you can, by pressing ENTER will help
you in this. I kept a special saved game just for jumps, saving
every time I was successful. This is specially important if,
missing the jump, you could fall to your death. Sometimes you stand
on the edge, sometimes you run and press the space bar at the right
moment in order to leap.
Finally, please be aware that this is "a solution" and not "THE
solution". You can do things quite differently and in a different
order, and still get there. Computer games nowadays are not as
linear as they used to be and the order of the day seems to be: Do
Your Own Thing! So play the game anyway you like, there is no need
to follow my instructions to the letter - in any case, certain
things change every time you play and you will just have to try
something else. Nevertheless, I hope this account of how I finished
the game will be helpful to you.
* * *
Right, after the watching the introduction, you'll be at home and
Zoe will give tell you your first task.
If you stand around for a bit doing nothing, Zoe will come to you
and give you lots of noisy and embarrassing kisses. Go to the table
by the bed and press the space bar to get 15 bucks. Go to the piece
of furniture by the door and get a key. This allows you to get
through the door. Pick up the magic ball from the top of the
barrel. Note the radio. You can use it, though nobody will
answer. Moving on, get the holomap from the shelves. Get the
darts. Hitting the bullseye of the dartboard (you can use the ball)
will get you hearts and potions. Leave. Go to the table by the bed
and get another 15 bucks. Explore the whole house. Leave it.
Don't go away, though. You are going to need a LOT of cash, so keep
going in and out of the house and getting those 15 coins until you
have about 300. I know it's a bit boring, but you won't regret it.
When you've finished amassing money, head N and examine the car.
Keep going round the house to the Dino-Fly. Talk to Zoe. Return to
the house and then go SE; follow the path around to your neighbour's
house. Talk to him. Examine the map on the table and he will tell
you he needs a vial of gallic acid. Leave, head SE and follow the
path E to town. It is worth the trouble to walk around talking to
everyone and looking everywhere.
Your first destination is the Museum. Go in and investigate it
fully. You'll find that a door is stuck. Go outside, go up the
ramp and around the square top of the building and you will see an
open window. Go through. Press the red button, pull the blue lever
and press F6, then run through the door, down the stairs and get
your tunic and medallion before the case closes. You can leave now.
Go E. You can go up the ramp and talk to the kid on the roof of the
Chemists; make sure you avoid the missiles from his catapult. Enter
the Chemists. Talk to the attendant; the customer will cut into the
conversation. A guy will come in and steal her umbrella. Follow
her out of the shop and talk to her; she will help if you retrieve
her umbrella. Change to Discreet, head S; you talk to he guy and he
gives you the brolly. Run N to the woman and stand in front of
her. Make sure that the umbrella is selected in the inventory and
she will tell you to go to Desert Island.
Go W, under the arch, to the harbour. At the Ferry Office you can
buy a ticket, but the ferry can't go until the storm problem gets
sorted out. Time, perhaps, to take on board everyone's hints and go
to the Weather Wizard (consult the holomap to get there). Go inside
his tent and talk to him. I'm afraid you will have to find the
Before you leave, stand in front of the cauldron and press the space
bar. Hm. Go to the left and pull the lever. Go through the hole
in the wall. Walk SE and face NE. Press F6, save your game and
jump on one of those floating boards as it goes by. Turn right
around and note the mushrooms and the lever. Jump at the one
mushroom on the one slab just past there. This will yield a clover;
remember where it is, you might well need it again. Jump on the
next passing board, you'll float towards the NE. When you turn the
corner, face NE and jump at the cardboard box. It contains money.
In the hidden corner to the right, you'll find a key. Before you
jump again onto a board, note the dripping water in the complex in
front of you. Jump and face E; wait and jump at the door. Inside,
a chest contains lots of blue potions. You might not need them now,
but believe me, you might well need them later on.
OK, take the next board and wait till you get to the lever. Jump,
use the mushrooms, pull the lever, face NW and take a running leap
at the gap: you can now go through to the Wizard's.
Leave his tent. Examine the holomap. Head directly to the E of
here, or as directly as you can; to find out where the lighthouse
keeper is you would have to travel a lot and talk to a lot of
people, so I'll save you the trouble. When you get to the bridge,
take the path down to the left of it. Watch out for snakes and
follow this path, which will take you to an arch (almost directly
beneath the tent) behind a signpost which says "Access to the
Go through the arch in Aggressive mode and kill the spider. Keep
left and dispatch the bird and the snakes with the magic ball. Go
through the arch and follow the path, leap onto the rock and jump
again to regain the path, then through the next arch.
Keep left and you will find the lighthouse keeper, who needs your
help. Continue along, up some steps, and you will see a room with
one door open and another shut. Jump below the three barrels and
get as close as you can to the lever to the NE. In Discreet mode,
throw balls at it till you hit it, and the closed door will open.
Go back to the steps and through the two, now open, doors and
through the arch.
Go to your right and jump across using the mounds of boulders as an
aid till you see a lever (by the way, boulders can be destroyed from
a safe distance to produce hearts, potions and coins). Jump onto
the boulders to the right and hit the lever with your magic ball.
Go back to the entrance of this room and keep left - jump at the
broken stairs (it's a bit difficult, but you'll make it by standing
at the right distance and angle). Go NE. You will meet Joe. Go
through the next arch.
Enter cautiously and hide behind the first barrel you come to.
Start chucking the magic ball around till you kill the beast. Jump
down to collect the key it will drop. Note the black boulder to the
left of the stairs going down. Jump onto in and then onto the
slab. Go left and, taking whatever cover you can behind the
candlestick, attack the monster. If necessary, go into Aggressive
mode and just bash away. Anyway, you'll have to go down the stairs
to collect his key. Up again and, in Normal/Sporty mode, negotiate
the wall to the SE with the spikes on it and then work your way W to
the locked doors by jumping from one platform to the next. Once you
are through the first door, the bird will attack you. Go through
the second door. Jump into the pit, trying to hide in the left
corner of it, and battle it out with the Tralu; or run around
chucking the ball at him - at the end, collect his key and other
items. Walk left and jump into the jail. The lighthouse keeper
will be glad to see you - you get a clover. Leave through the
locked door, go downstairs and to the right, where you'll meet Zoe.
Using the holomap and the signposts, find the lighthouse. Talk to
the Wizard and watch.
Go to the harbour and take the ferry - make sure the ticket is
I will leave you to explore the whole village - watch out for the
phoney trash bins and cacti. Go to the house of the healer (marked
with an arrow in the map) and talk to the woman. Get the vial of
gallic acid from the shelves. Find Jerome's house and talk to him.
He will give you a spare part for your car. Examine everything -
use the radio. Leave. Examine the holomap. Go to the oasis on the
Use the bell and go to the edge of the water. Save. A turtle will
appear and invite you to jump on it. Do so and it will take you to
a little rock - jump on it and get the clover box. Jump on the
turtle and it will take you back.
Consult your holomap once more. Go to the extreme NW of the
island. Note the bloke on the roof. Enter the building and talk to
everyone; behind the counter, you will see some stairs. Walk
through the door to the right, across the courtyard and enter the
door to the SE. A young lady yells. Step outside; the Manager will
be standing there frowning on you. Then run to the stairs and up.
Talk to the guy on the roof and he will tell you where to go next.
The School of Magic
Go to the Cemetery. You will find that the doors are locked, but
going around to the left of them you will find a passage going in.
Mind the birds. That funny green thing in a rock is Joe - talk to
him and he will ask for help. Find the grey path which leads to the
doors between the sarcophagi. Go through. Talk to the grobo. Go
through the door to the right.
If you go to the NW you will see there is a locked door. Head NE -
you have to negotiate your way through the tables while avoiding the
blue blobs. Just pick the right moment. On the other side, climb
up the stairs, change to Discreet mode and go open the chest - you
get a key. Still in Discreet mode, find the hidden penguin between
the two large rocks to the left. Go down the stairs and change to
Sporty mode - run the gauntlet of the blue blobs once more, go up
the stairs and unlock the door.
Following through here, you'll come to one of those bunnies. Talk
to her and she will present the Master Magician. Keep talking to
him, pay your money and ask for instructions. Go to the door behind
him and he will give you more instructions. Enter and go up the
steps. Face SW and start throwing the magic ball. It's just a
question of timing, I'll sure you'll have no problem hitting all the
targets in the time given. When you come out, you get a blowpipe
and the next task.
Leave the School and, outside, look at the holomap. The location of
the next item is marked - you will note that there are two large
groups of rocks. Go to the N one. You have to be almost beneath
the broken bridge - a phoney cactus will have to be killed or you'll
get no peace. Then find the right spot to climb the rock around
here; persevere, it can be done. Once you've jumped up, get the
balsam flower. Now it's just a matter of jumping down and going
back to the School of Magic.
You will get the horn of healing and be told where to go next. Go
outside to the Cemetery. Find Joe, stand back and save. Select the
horn, aim it at him and when you hit him with a heart, he will be
well again. You get a clover or two.
Go to the Ferry Office and get a ticket. Avoiding a nasty man near
some crates, get to the ferry and travel to the Citadel. Go to your
house, walk round it and go up to the Dino-Fly. You will find Zoe
there. Give her the spare part Jerome gave you. Now select the
horn and keep firing it at Dino till he gets well. Talk to him and
ask him to take you to the Dome of the Slate.
The Dome of the Slate
Walk to the map to the right of the door and save your game here.
Examine the map. Enter the door and stop. Save another game for
this highly dangerous and difficult exercise. As you walk forward
tiles will appear under your feet, which are hardly visible; but if
you are too close to the edge or step into the vacuum, you get
killed. So advance very carefully and save every time you negotiate
a part of the maze successfully. If you've forgotten where you are
or what you have to do next, save, reload the game at the point in
which you can look at the map, find out where to go and then reload
the maze. I will try to give you directions to help you, though it
won't be easy. From the viewpoint of Twinsen, advance forward 8
tiles, counting as you go. Then turn him to his left and advance 4
tiles; turn him to his right and advance 4 tiles; to the left, 4
tiles; to the left, 3 tiles; to the left, 2 tiles; to the right, 4
tiles, to the right, 3 tiles; to the right, 10 tiles; to the right,
4 tiles; then keep going straight to the door and through.
The Magician will appear and give you a magic slate. Go around to
the left of the door and climb some steps to get back to the map.
Consult it and it will be inscribed in the slate. Enter the door
again. As the same way as before, advance forward three tiles; turn
Twinsen to the right and advance 2 tiles; to the left, 1 tile; turn
him to the right, jump up; advance 2 tiles; turn him to his left and
advance carefully till you see a clover box. Get it and walk back
the way you came and through the door.
Go to Dino and ask him to take you to Desert Island. Go and visit
Jerome. With the use of the radio, you know your car is waiting for
you. Go to the village and, near the ferry, you will find Zoe and
your car. You can use it by standing near it and pressing Enter -
you can also shoot with it pressing ALT. Examine the holomap and
drive to the racing track. Enter it and stand behind the white
line, in the left lane, and wait. A guy will come and challenge
you. I couldn't catch him (may be you will), but had a lot of fun
Drive to the cemetery and go to the Magician. Talk to him. Now
drive to the Hacienda in the NW, talking to everyone you meet.
Watch the nasty trash bin. Enter, go right to the courtyard, talk
to the alien. Go along with him and enter the door at the NE.
Inside the ship, go downstairs and get the translator. Go back up,
talk to everyone and examine everything. After you have looked at
the tourism terminal, just walk around and watch the ship land.
Follow your leader - as you come into the building, Joe recognizes
you and gives you away. You wind up in jail.
Joe will join you inside your cell and explain matters to you - keep
talking to him until the guard comes and orders the door open.
Change to Aggressive mode at once and kill him. Go to the left and
follow this corridor till someone asks you to free him. Go SE and
up the stairs - no need to go all the way up, hit the guard with the
magic ball till you kill him. Then pull the first lever, go down
the stairs and follow the freed insect. When you come to the two
red switches, press the first one. Talk to your pal, then follow
him through the door. Attack the robot at once with the magic ball
and don't leave off till it explodes. Escape through the gap and
turn to the right.
Change the perspective, jump over the bale of straw and, avoiding
the doggies, walk diagonally to the NW. Outside, cross to the
building in front, behind the backs of the guards. Inside the
building, you can talk to everyone, but go through the gate with the
arrow pointing SW. This sets off an alarm and you will have to kill
two guards. Keep going SW and down the chute, and SW again. As you
come out of the door, stick to the left corner so that the two
guards will separate. Change to Aggressive mode and kill one, then
throw the ball at the other till he's dead. Come up the stairs and
talk to the engineer in front of the ship. Go into the building in
front of it.
Kill the guard; he will set off an alarm and another guard will
come. Kill him also. Keep going up, all the way. You come out
into the control room. Look around for a red travel token - as soon
as you are able, take it. There is no need to kill anyone here, you
just wait till you can access the token. Go down. You'll have to
kill the new guard. As you come out of the building, you could run
like the wind, avoiding the guards chasing you, and enter the ship.
Otherwise stay and kill them.
At any rate, once in the ship, go up, select the token and watch.
THE INVADED CITADEL
You will get a radio message from Zoe instructing you to go home.
Easier said than done! Almost at once you will be attacked by an
alien, so be ready. Change to Aggressive mode and make with the
magic ball. Once the alien is dead, press ENTER to change the
perspective and run towards the NW (mind the snake); you are aiming
for the grate which leads down to the sewers, by the telescope.
Stand on it in Normal mode and press the space bar. Once there, go
down the stairs in the SW direction, jump onto a floating board. If
you need to, go and get a clover. From there, jump to the left to
the lever and pull it. Run to the left, jumping over the gap, and
enter the Wizard's Tent. Read the paper he left on the table.
Go back to the sewers. If you need another clover, you know what to
do. At any rate, jump on a board and float to the slab before you
get to the locked door. Jump onto it, go up the stairs and run to
the SE, jumping over the gap - kill the pesky bird before you try.
This is the Safeguard St. exit and you will use it every time you
need to get back to the village. Ignore the alien (he cannot be
killed) and stand on the lift to go up.
Up there, press ENTER to change the perspective. Wait till the
guard heads W and then run N; when you reach the end of the path,
follow it NW dodging the guard and any dog which might take a fancy
to your ankles. You should be able to make it home more or less in
Once there, talk to Zoe; two more tasks to complete - you have to
collect the protopack and then go to the School of Magic. But!
Before you do any such thing, sort yourself out in the matter of
hearts, potions and money. Try and get about 200.
When you are ready, run across to your neighbour. Talk to him and
select the vial in the inventory. Wait till he cleans the map, read
it and he will give you a key.
Before you leave, consult your holomap and work out how you are
going to get to the Parcel Office. It might be worth your while to
save and do a trial run to see which is the best strategy - there
are lots of nasties out there!
I'll assume you've made it - as you come through the door, the grobo
will speak to you. Go through the door, stand on the lift and pull
the lever to go down. Go left and do the same thing to go another
level down; go right through the arch. You will see a sort of
balcony with blue arrows on the floor. As you step onto it, this
activates the floating magnet. By stepping on the correct arrows,
you have to manoeuvre the magnet onto the parcel with the big label,
and then move the parcel onto the black arrow on the floor and
through the narrow door onto a lift. Use the tiles on the floor as
a grid with which to guide yourself - it's really very easy. Once
the parcel goes up and the magnet returns, go N and NE up the
stairs, through the door. Save right there. Before you touch the
parcel, have a good look around. Note the guy laying around. There
is a clover in one of the barrels around him. The idea is to push
the parcel following the black arrows along no end of passageways
and upstairs to the grobo. Well, the first moves are easy enough,
take the parcel to the next arrow, then stand to the left of it and
push it across, diagonally, the conveyor belt. Place it on the next
conveyor belt until it reaches the lift. Go downstairs and pull the
lever to bring down the lift. Move it along, still following the
black arrows, but time yourself so that the next pusher does not put
the parcel on the conveyor belt as you try to get past. The rest is
easy - till you get to the guy in front of the door. He can be got
rid of by just hitting him once. Unfortunately, I could not find
the key to the door. Neither of the characters here can be killed.
The key is in none of the various containers in this complex. Using
the magic ball on the levers of the floor below did not seem to have
any effect. I did think vaguely of using the floating magnet
somehow or other, but frankly, by this time I could not be bothered
to study the problem further (though YOU might like to try),
particularly since the guy laying around upstairs will deliver the
parcel for 102 kash.
Having payed up, I merely went upstairs and collected the
protopack. Now for the Dino-Fly and Desert Island. You could
retrieve your car from the Hacienda, if you wanted, but in any case
head for the School and talk to the Magician. To get the pearl,
examine the holomap. You will see the cave marked with a red
arrow: to the right of it, you will see a jetty. Go there, use the
bell and jump on the turtle. It will take you into the cave. As
soon as you are inside, save. The mushrooms you will see on the
first slab will produce four clovers. If you need them, jump onto
them, then jump onto the next slab and onto the turtle. But the
idea is to jump onto the third platform and go up the stairs. Use
the protopack to get over the spikes and then go up in Normal mode
and get the pearl. Go back the way you came.
Go to Dino. Before you fly back to the Citadel, it might be worth
travelling to the...
Island Opposite the Hacienda
When you get there, walk around till you reach the beach, and
advance very carefully here, pressing ENTER very frequently. When
you are aligned with the entrance, use the protopack to go through.
As soon as you are inside, skirt the area by heading E - if you are
hit by a ball or a bird, you are dead meat. Let's hope you make it
safely to the ramp. You will notice that you could continue to the
E: save and try. Fun, huh?
Let's concentrate on what we are doing. Leap over the spikes,
facing NE, and go hide behind the mound of boulders to your left.
Kill the two skeletons. Move towards the NW and have a good look.
Move the box in the middle of the floor to the lift on the right,
and don't push it too far NE. Go back to the platform with the
stairs and the lever. Go up and take a running leap onto the other
lift. Once there, turn around and throw a ball at the lever. You
should go up. Push the box all the way so that it falls on the
other box already on the lift - if you are very clever you'll work
it so that they are not exactly on top of each other, but rather
forming a step, the lower box being more to the SW than the one on
top. In Discreet mode, throw a ball at the lever below and the two
boxes will rise. Now it's just a matter of jumping up to reach the
amphorae you will see in the NE corner.
Run along this corridor - through the arch, fight two skeletons.
Move a bit to the NE and you will see steps leading to a pit.
Inside, a spiky creature I did not like the look of; so I lobbed
balls at it till it was dead. Go down and get the Protection
spell. Now go to the steps SW and stand on the lowest one. Kill
the two birds. Use the protopack and wind your way to the SW.
Through the arch, stop at the first platform and kill the bird.
Collect all the mushrooms using the protopack. At the last
platform, cast Protect and negotiate the spiky bars to the SW; stop
at the ramp. Kill the bird. Again, using the protopack move S and
hug the southern edge of the picture to avoid the balls being thrown
at you. Get out of the cave and get to Dino. Before you leave, get
the clover box on the rocks to his left.
Ask Dino to take you to the Citadel. Once there, go home if you
need to, to sort yourself out. Go to the Weather Wizard - it is
safest to run like the wind first to the top of the screen facing
NE, then at the barbed wire, SW and then E, up the ramp.
Inside the tent, use the pearl on the cauldron - you've got the
Lightning spell. Go into the sewer the usual way. Jump on a board
and float in front of the clover mushroom to get it. Jump again on
a board and, when you are level with the clover box, use the
protopack to float over and get it. The mushrooms on the other
platform give you hearts and potions. Use the protopack to get onto
another board and make your way to the Safeguard St in the usual
way. Outside, press ENTER and wait till the guard is gone and then
run to the bar.
Inside, go to the counter and make sure you have enough magic points
by buying potions. Go to the centre of the room and cast Lighting -
everybody should die. Collect everything left behind, go behind the
counter and get the key from the barrel. Buy more potions so your
blue bar is full. Go through the door on the right and along the
corridor. In the square room there is a hole in the centre,
obscured by the crates and barrels. Fall through. Advance and
place the pyramid key on the stand. A wall will open. Go through
and, when you get to the big ball, cast Lightning. You get the
As you come out you get a call from Jerome. Never a moment's
peace. Go up the stairs and stand on the square patch of bare
bricks, facing SE. Jump onto a passing board. If you need another
clover to complete your collection (by now I had six boxes and five
clovers; make sure all your boxes are full), you know where to get
one. This is the last time you visit the sewers. Go out through
the Safeguard St. exit.
You know the routine, go to Dino. If you want to go home, this is
your last chance. Anyway, get Dino to take you to Desert Island.
This time, head for...
The Temple of Bu
Before you enter the enclosure, get rid of the robot and all the
aliens you can from the safety of the concrete fence. Then go
inside and through the archway. Go immediately to one of the
corners by the door, get into Aggressive mode and kill the dogs.
Advance SE and kill the guard before you go along the bridge. Once
through, save: stop at a certain distance from the edge and, when
the cart slows down, jump onto it.
There are certain things you have to bear in mind here. The cart
can only go through sliding doors if you are on top of it. You have
to throw a ball at the arrows to get the cart to go in the direction
you want. The way to do it is to go to through the first door, jump
off, see what's what, change the arrows you need to, jump on the
cart and move on to the next section. The bad news is that you can
only save your game when you are on top of the cart. Try it before
you jump onto it, and the cart disappears. So be warned! Although
this is not strictly necessary, a bit of fun is to get the cart to
go through the doors with round windows at the top NE corner of the
map. Since you've saved, you might like to try it. There are lots
of mushrooms to collect, but I confess I didn't need them and so I
didn't bother to keep jumping on and off the cart. But that doesn't
mean YOU can't!
And now to business. You've jumped on the cart. Go through the
first door, jump off, follow the cart, hit the second arrow in its
path. Get on it again and go through the next two doors. Hit the
arrow pointing downwards. Get on the cart before it goes down on
Hit the first arrow you come to - you should also hit the other
arrow pointing down, but do so in a way that you can get on the cart
before it goes down on its own. Once down there, when the cart
takes you past a tall ledge with mushrooms on it, be sure you are
facing SE and jump. Getting the clover means that, because all your
boxes are (or should be) full, your hit points and magic points get
replenished. Try to get on the cart at the W side of the tracks.
Cast Protection and, when you come to the cardboard box, jump at it
and get the key.
Run down the stairs to the SE and through the doors. Save.
The Alien Base
If you go to the SE you can get back to the Hacienda. Instead, face
SW and kill the soldier without going all the way down the stairs,
where he can kill you. Move on SE and run S to get behind the table
- the sleeping beauties will come after you but you should be able
to kill them at your leisure with the table between you.
Afterwards, go to the NE of the room and search their belongings by
the bed. You get a key. Head W and go through the door. Kill the
guard to get a key. The mushroom on top of the tallest crate is a
clover... if you need it.
Walk NE and ignore the ship for now. Continue NE and, without going
all the way up the stairs, kill the next guard. Carry on up and
then W through the doors, stand on the lift and, in Normal mode,
press the space bar to go up. Move E and, before you get on the
crackling bridge, use the protopack. At the end of the bridge,
don't press the switch. Go E instead and get behind the table, and
from there kill the soldier. Get his key and use it to open the
round contraption to the right to get a travel token. Now go back
to the bridge and press Enter to get a better view. Press the
switch to turn off the electricity and allow the avenging guard to
run onto it, then press the switch again to watch him fry.
Actually, I'm a very gentle person and in real life wouldn't hurt a
fly. I thought you'd like to know that.
Press the switch again to disable the electricity and proceed to the
ship. Use the token and watch. At the end, the code you want is
the Green Moon one. Go down and collect the space suit, then leave
OK, go NE and into the building with the lozenge shape over the
door. Enter and go into the lit room to leave the suit there. Go
through the other door and kill the guards. Click on all three orbs
and then go and look at the map to the right of them. Basically,
you need to get to X.
Leave, put on your suit. Leave and make your way W to the building
with a circle over the door. Go through in the same manner as
before and head W - you will see a clover box by the bed. Pick it
up and fight the two guards. Press F6 and try to get out of here,
going N, as soon as you can, otherwise you'll get attacked time and
Then go NE, kill the guard, note the yellow/black door to the NW, go
the NE, kill the guard, turn the wheel and go back to the
yellow/black door which will now be open. Go through and kill the
guard to get a key. Walk NW and then NE to the jail. Jerome and
his mate will give you a lot of info. When they leave, follow
them. Kill the guard and turn the wheel. Go to the door to the SE
and follow the guys out. The sausage man gets killed - run NE after
Jerome, kill the guards, continue E, go through the open door and go
N to talk to Jerome. Go up the stairs to the E, though not all the
way up, and kill the guards. Carry on up and pull the red lever to
the left. Go down to join Jerome, go through the door, pick up your
suit and follow him through the other door. Watch.
After the inelegant landing, Jerome will ask you to get some
gazogem. Look at the map. You are going to have to jump along the
rocks to the S to get to the mainland. At the second rock, kill the
sea dragon with the magic ball before you proceed. Carry on jumping
- from the last rock, you'll have to take a running jump to reach
You will recognize where you are. Go through the kennels, avoiding
the dogs, but this time, instead of going to the building across the
way, you are going to the one on the left. There is no need to
fight here, the guards will ignore you. Go NE, get on a lift and
leave through a door to the NW. Outside, use the orange bin to get
some money. By the way, you must have 5 local coins, so if
necessary go back into the building and back out again to get more
money. Look at the map. Go to the gas station and try and buy some
gazogem. No good, there ain't any there.
The bouncer at the Casino door will try to get you inside. Go in.
It will cost you 5 bucks. Get onto the lift, talk to the croc and
you will be taken down. Go around all the plant pots and you will
get 10 coins. Go to a slot machine. Save your game (if you lose
all your money, you can always reload and try a different machine).
You need loads of money, at least 200 coins, and also a key. A bit
tedious, but there is no help for it. Once you have these
requirements, go through the door to the NW. Talk to the croc and
he will give you instructions. Save. Go up the stairs and stand on
the platform, as close to the wheel as you can. As soon as you've
activate it, cast Lightning if you have sufficient magic points; if
not, turn SE, change to Aggressive mode and use the ball if the two
nasties are one behind the other or just bash them if they are side
by side. If you are beaten and thrown out penniless, reload and try
again. When you've won the battle, you get 100 cash and a key, and
stairs will appear behind the wheel. Alas, you cannot get across to
the door, but that's not important. Leave this room and play some
more games for fun, if you like; to get out, stand on the lift.
Once outside go E, ignoring the bridge for now, and enter the shop.
You can buy a memory viewer (use it and see what it does) and
anything else you need. Go back to the bridge and cross it, then go
down to the harbour by turning left. Enter Rick's and talk to the
hooded customer by the door. Go back to the harbour and talk to the
Captain. He will take you where you need to be for 100 bucks.
Enter his blimp. Watch.
As soon as you land, save. Turn to Aggressive mode, advance and
kill the guard. Try and get the sausage man between you and the
second guard; in fact, if you move slightly to the left, the guard
will drown. When he is dead, run up the path and go into the
Temple. Talk to monk, read the posters on the wall. Great. On top
of everything else, you've got to find the four fragments of the
Talk to the guys to the left of the temple, then to the souvenir
vendor to the right of the temple. You are sent to Rick's. Go down
to the harbour. Before you get to sea level, kill the first guard
from a height by lobbing balls in Discreet mode. Come down and get
the hot dog man between you and the next guard; try moving a little
to the right. When he's dead, go to the guy with the hovercraft and
ask to be taken to...
The first hut you will see on the left when you land is the shop.
Go in, buy a pick and anything else you need. Go around talking to
everyone, but leave the compound to the N of the island for the
moment. Investigate the round boulder next to the Burgemaster's
hut. Actually it's a sort of kennel - inside, the key to the safe.
Enter the Burgemaster's hut, open the safe with the key and get the
note. Read it. Out.
With your back to the harbour, go to the N of the island and around
the huts to the left. Work your way around to the very obvious
tree; get in front of it and with your back to it (use ENTER to get
the correct perspective). Right below the last hut to the right (i.
e., the shop), you will see a green dip. Go to it and use the pick
to get the Francos key fragment.
Now go to the fenced compound. Jump onto the lowest pipe and, from
there, onto the wonky bit of the fence. Jump in and, ignoring the
two guards to the left (you'll be seeing to them later), walk around
the right of the building, kill the guard, and enter it through the
Now, I'm not going to repeat this ad nauseam. Save a lot: and
every time you see a kind of cream coloured cross-shaped wheel, turn
it. OK? They regulate the steam coming out of the square valves.
Advance SE to the platform which sticks out. If you can, cast
Protection and take a running leap onto the first valve, then jump
to the next and down. Get the key from the box - if you have
problems, going up on the lift and killing the guard will allow you
to turn the steam off. If not, just go through the door.
Jump downstairs. Go to the lift to the right (you will see two blue
lines) and jump on it to go up. Kill guard, turn the wheel. Place
yourself on the platform next to the lift - the idea is to jump onto
a safe bit of the tank below, without drowning. Then jump SW and
work your way around to the NE - get the key from the box and out
the door. Kill the guard, get the key. Jump the safest way you can
to the NE. Stand on the moving platform and keep your finger on the
forward key to avoid being pushed off. At the other side, go
through door. Before you move on, turn to Twinsen's left and jump
in to get some hearts.
Move forward facing SE and kill the guard in Discreet mode. Get
onto the valve to the N and kill the technician; use the ball to
retrieve his key. Before entering the first gate, kill the dogs in
Discreet mode, or jump onto the cube in front of the fencing and try
other modes. When they are dead, go through the gate and up the
stairs. A soldier will come through the door to the right. Move up
the stairs and try to get him in the path of the steam. Once he's
dead, get his key, continue up the stairs, open the gate, get the
gazogem, get the key from the box, go downstairs and leave through
the door to the right.
Outside, jump out and go to the drums to the left. Jump on them and
over the fence. Go to the harbour and travel to Celebration Island.
You know what to do about the guards. Climb up the path up to the
Temple, then turn left. Follow the path around the volcano. I'm
afraid you will have to save a lot and just time your jumps right.
When you get up the stairs, use the protopack to float over the
water, hugging the left side of the crater. When you get to the
crystals, use the pick. OK, get jumping again; you will end up near
the salesman. Go down the path and get rid of the soldiers
(remember to kill the first one from a height in Discreet mode and
to get the old sausage between you and the next soldier). Get the
hovercraft to Otringal.
From the harbour, look at the map. You are going to have to jump
southwards to get to Jerome. Take a running leap at the first
rock. Press ENTER. Use the pack to fly to the next rock to the
left and then take a running jump to land near Jerome. Give him the
gazogem. OK, back to the harbour the way you came.
Talk to everyone. If you need more money, and you surely will later
on, use the slot machines. Check out the dancing girl! If you have
a full bar of magic points, go near the door to the office and cast
Lightning. You just pick up the key and go through to Rick.
If you don't, climb onto the stage and go behind the curtain to the
right. Talk to everyone and get the penguin behind the screen. If
you walk to the left of the picture, you will see three wheels.
Turn the centre one, the one on the left and then the one on the
right. The grate to the right will open. Jump down, move the
tallest column under it and the shortest one between it and the
floor to the left. Climb back up and jump to the two columns to
enter the shaft. You end up in Rick's office.
Talk to him. He will send you to Rocket, at the Hotel. Leave and
head for the harbour. You will get a call from Jerome - the jetpack
is ready. So go and get it, jumping as I explained above, and then
go back to the harbour.
Examine the holomap. What you need to reach is the secret entrance
behind the Casino. So run like mad up the stairs and to the corner
where you will see water gushing and a door higher up. Get rid of
the soldier and take a running leap over the white stepping stone
onto the path around the mountain. Soon you will encounter some
machine guns - if you can, cast Lightning. If not, cast Protection
and run in front of the guns as high up the slope as you can.
Run on and, jumping over the small fence, enter the building to the
right. This is the Hotel. Buy hearts and potions. Hit the bellboy
and, when the soldier comes in, cast Lightning. Collect the key and
buy all the potions you need to replenish the blue bar.
Go through the chain barrier with the key, head to the SE and talk
to the guy reclining on a divan. Follow him to his room. He will
give you a ring and tell you to go to the shop at Twinson -
actually, he means at Otringal. When you leave, save your game.
Enter the next room at a slant and you will catch the spies in
action. Cast Lightning to kill them all. Collect what they left
behind. The wardrobe yields two clovers. If you are low on
clovers, you can always run down, buy plenty of potions, come back
to this room and cast Lightning again, then you can get more clovers.
At any rate, try the next room along for a bit of fun. Leave the
way you came, but before you go out of the Hotel, buy all you need.
You can destroy the soldiers with the machine guns with the
Lightning spell, if you want. When you get back to the secret door,
take a running leap onto the white stone and then run to the shop,
over the bridge, avoiding the soldiers if you can.
Once inside the shop, first buy whatever you need, then show the
ring to the attendant. He opens the bookcase and you can go down.
Talk to everyone clockwise. The last guy will tell you what to do.
Examine the map on the table. You also get a laser pistol.
Now you've got to get to Francos again, and you can run the gauntlet
of the soldiers or you can run, as far away from the bridge as
possible, to the Casino. Inside, use the slot machines till you get
the key. Go through the door to the left and do what you did
before, only this time you can cross the water with the jetpack and
go out of the secret door. Float to the path to the NW and then
take a running jump and the white stepping stone. Run like mad to
the harbour and take the hovercraft to Francos.
Use the shop to make sure you have both bars full. Get over the
fence by jumping on the pipe, as I explained above; only this time,
instead of turning right you are going to turn left. Cast the
Lightning spell to kill the soldiers and collect their goods. Enter
the building on the left and attack the soldier at once. Now, using
the ball or the laser pistol, kill the soldiers on the other side of
the gap. Hit the levers so that they are, from left to right, Up,
Down, Up, Down. This opens both doors, so go through.
As you come out, run to the drums in front of you to get some cover
and kill the soldier which will come from the left. When you've
killed him, go left. Look at the map. You are at the harbour and
you've just killed the soldier guarding this side of it. Advance
along the quay and enter the craft. When you land, save your game.
Note the large crate to your right, because you are going to hide
behind it in a minute. In Sporty mode, head SE, change the
perspective and come forward till you talk to the fellow with too
many arms by the entrance. Run off immediately and watch where the
crates he throws fall short of you. Shoot at him somehow to get him
to come forward and then run behind the crate. Stand a bit to the
right of it. His missiles can't reach you, but you can take your
time killing him.
When you have done so, run to get the key, then take a leap at the
entrance of the lift. Watch.
As you come out, move to the N and have a look. In Discreet mode,
kill the two characters behind the wall and then throw balls at the
switches till you hit one and you can come out. Save.
Have a look at the holomap. Run out, dodging the guards, and on to
the first building you come to. Inside, another guard. This is
some kind of warehouse - note the crates being dropped and the
ladder on the NW.
Again, running, leave and go to the next building on the left. This
is a Bank. Kill the guards. The one above the counter yields a
clover. Enter the doors. Pressing the button on the wall in the
first room yields 5 zlitos. Go to the next room. Hitting the
manager produces a key - you can move the statue, go in and open the
safe. This gives you 150 zlitos. Now go down the stairs. If you
go to the right and go through the arch, killing the guard, you will
notice that the door to the N shuts and opens according to whether
you are one side or the other of the arch. Leave this building.
If you run to the left past the guards, and under the pillars, you
will be able to enter...
Your first task is to get rid of the guard dog by lobbing balls in
Discreet mode. Follow the tracks, watching out for carts. Keep to
the right as you explore the mine. The mounds of white boulders
will produce hearts/potions, and you must find at least 7 pinkish
gems, preferably 8.
So, following the tracks to the right, you will see a guard - run
past him and, just before you get to the lava cascade, cast
Protection. Run along without falling off. The tracks turn SW
here, so follow on - but note the island with the mushroom to the
left, on the sea of lava. Carry on and talk to the two guys, one of
them has lost a glove. Behind the partition beside them there is a
hidden gem. Go on SW and climb up the ladder to enter the crane.
Using the arrow keys, first down, then right and then down again,
pick up the clover box and drop it where you can reach it. Leave by
pressing Enter. This clover box is the only one which gets
regenerated in the game, so if you are short of them, here is your
chance to get the maximum of 10 the game permits. I would strongly
advise you to do so.
OK, go back to where you run past the soldier, not forgetting to
protect yourself before you cross in front of the lava cascade; and
then you want to turn SW. You will see some vertical steps leading
down. Go down. The mound of white rocks produces hearts/potions.
Between the stairs and the mound there is an entrance to a cave
which leads nowhere - but by entering and leaving, everything gets
regenerated. So when you have collected enough of everything, stand
on the edge of the rock facing SE, use the jetpack, cast Protection
and float roughly E to the island with the mushroom. This will
produce a clover. Again, if you need some more, go to into the cave
and out again to come and collect another. (By the same token, you
can also go and get more clover boxes.)
When you are satisfied you have everything you need, float over the
sliding platforms heading SW and at the end, turn NW. There is an
entrance to a cave by the guy with the pick. Go in and float NW to
the second island. Then move SW to the lowest slab of rock. Climb
up to the NW and collect the glove, then another clover and a
crystal. Go to the lowest slab of rock and float NE till you come
to some stairs. Go all the way up and around (protecting yourself
before the lava flow) and, at the bottom, kill the guy to get a
key. Use it to enter the Temple. Go NE to pick up another fragment
of the key from the altar and then change to Aggressive mode,
because this move will anger the locals. Fight the three who'll
come at you. The bowls in the three visible corners of the temple
give hearts/potions. Leave and be prepared to fight again.
Outside, you can drop onto another slab of rock to collect a gem,
but then you will have to follow the stairs all the way around to
get back here. Save and take a running leap and the bridge to the
right and then run like mad through the next cave. As you come out,
drop in the gap and collect another gem. Kill the guard. Now you
can go left and collect some goodies or right and up the stairs,
braving the guard, and run back to the entrance of the mines.
To the NE you will see the exit, guarded by the dog as before. To
the SW, you can get into the packaging section and be delivered,
probably dead, to the warehouse in the harbour. You might like to
try for a bit of fun. But actually, you don't need to do this just
now, so get rid of the dog and come out the regular way.
Outside, with the entrance of the mine at your back, follow the path
to the right, killing soldiers as you go along. At one point the
path branches to the SE or to the left, depending of which way you
are looking at it, and the poster says that this is Ferryman's
lane. Leave it for now and continue on the path till you get to the
village. The first opening you will see leads to some caves which
are, in fact, the village. Keep to the left.
You'll meet an old guy who pines for some tart, and who doesn't. If
you keep to the left, you will come to a cosy little home where you
will be invited for dinner. Go to the right hand side of the table
and press Enter. Watch. Still, you have a piece of tart. Go back
to the old man and give it to him; in return, you get a key. Go up
the stairs to the NW; the Temple is just there (you'll see the
signpost). Enter and talk to the monk at the altar. He tells you
you need the ferryman and to talk to his housemaid. Leave.
Head for the exit and, before you go out, enter the opening to
Twinsen's left. Here you'll find the housemaid and she will teach
you a song. You can leave now. You might like to see the outside
of the village - for instance, in a sort of pond, kissing a frog
will produce hearts. It used to be princes.
Now all you have to do is go to Ferryman's lane, follow it, over the
bridge, to the open building on the headland and use the song. The
ferryman will appear. Nip down to where you see the lamp post, talk
to him and cough up 4 gems - and he will take you to...
Jump to the beach, collect the gem and talk to the guy buzzing
around. He takes you to the Queen. Talk to her, show the
dissidents ring and she will set you a test.
You'll be in a square pit, and balls will start to hit you. Go to
the wall on the left, stand in front of the centre hole, turn to
Aggressive mode and keep striking the space bar. You'll be
destroying the balls as they come at you, and eventually you'll get
a key. Observe the paths the balls cover and, avoiding them, go to
the door on the right. Inside, a weapon.
You are hailed as one of them by the Queen, who says she will give
you a key. Instead, the alarm is given and you go through the only
opening. Don't bother to fight the baddies, they just get
regenerated. If you can, cast Lightning to clear the decks and have
a look around.
You will notice the Throne is empty, but a keyhole is quite
visible. Run roughly to the SW, casting Protect if you can, till
you see a red rope going down a hole. Go N here and through a gap
in the wall. Move NW and stand on the lift. When you come up, walk
right around the inner centre. You will see a locked chest and a
creature. Talk to him. Go back a little way to find the stairs and
go up. Wear the glove. Provoke the flying walrus by walking
towards it and keep pressing ALT. Eventually you will kill it with
its own fire balls. It drops a key - retrieve it with the magic
ball, go down and open the chest to get another fragment.
Leave the way you came and, when you enter the village, go SW and
down the rope. Run to the left to stand on a square wooden platform
on the beach. Use the song to call the Ferryman. Float to the
ferry and ask to be taken to...
Wannis Island, again
Once there, go back into the caves. You need to have four gems and
you must try and have a full complement of clovers. You know what
to do. When you are ready, go to the Packaging Plant.
When you come in, kill the operator and move both levers to the
right. Jump into a box and wait. In the warehouse, jump from the
smaller crate to the larger and then go up the stairs.
On the roof, press Enter till you can see another hole in another
roof. Jump through it and you'll find yourself in jail with the
Queen. Talk to her and she will give you the key. Walk to the left
window and dispatch the two guards, then hit the lever to open the
door. Leave. You'll see you are just going through to the Bank.
Kill the soldier, go through the door and kill the other one. When
you get towards the exit, cast Lightning to kill everybody, and
collect everything they drop before you leave. It's worth getting
yourself killed just to have full magic points and be able to cast
Lightning. Indeed, it's the only way you can cope against so many
enemies - bear in mind this strategy for other situations like this
Anyway, it's back to the ferry and to...
Mosquibee Island, again
Get to the village up the rope and go to the throne by keeping to
the SE. You will see the throne is now occupied. Cast Protect and
bash away at the nasty, preferably drawing him where he is being hit
by the two guards. When you've done, cast Protect again (you will
have collected some potions when the nasty dies) and run to the
throne. Use the key and go through and onto a lift.
Go to the right and kill the soldiers - alternatively, let them kill
you and cast Lightning. Get the key and go through. Use the
jetpack and go E and onto the platform with the lever. Again, wear
the glove and provoke the swimming walrus by walking forward. Once
you've killed it, use a ball against the dragon. Wear the jetpack,
throw the lever and get quickly across to the door to the N.
Kill everybody, preferably with a Lightning spell and go right, up
the stairs and collect the key. Go quickly through the door to the
Kill the soldier, cast Protect and move NW to turn the wheel, then
up the stairs and through the door. No point in fighting the
guards, you can't kill them. Run towards the NW, turn the wheel and
go through. Kill the soldier - you should get a clover. Get the key
from the box and then use the jetpack to float SE. Kill the
soldiers outside, go in through the locked door and kill the other
soldier. Go to the N East and use the lift.
Watch. Kill the Emperor and collect his key. This has unfortunate
effects, but never mind. Kill the other soldier in the room, open
the seat with the lock and get the sword - use it immediately (and
leave it permanently equipped from now on), because you are about to
be attacked by one of the Emperor's guards. When you've killed him,
get on the lift.
You come outside. Don't bother with the ship you'll see parked
nearby. Go to the doors of the central building and kill the guard
to get the key. Get back in. Go NW and turn the wheel, go up the
stairs and inside and kill the guards - one of them has a key which
will let you into the door to the N.
Go through and up the stairs and kill the other guard - go up the
stairs and get the travel token. Fight your way back to the ship
outside and use the token. You will be deposited by the Palace.
Fight your way in; one of the guards has a key to open the door.
Once inside, you will have to fight/open chests to get keys - keep
going to your right. Eventually you will come to a long corridor.
Fight all the guards and come close to the statue, which turns out
to be a king-size monster. Yet I killed it without too much
difficulty. You get the last fragment of the key and the last level
of magic. Get back exactly the same way you came in.
Now you will have to run for the harbour - you know the way. Get
the hovercraft to...
Get into the temple and use the key on the centrepiece. Go outside
and watch. The Dark Monk gets revealed as FunFrock. When he has
done his bit, go to the columns to the right of the Temple.
Starting from the shortest furthest away, jump from one column to
the next, onto the book, onto the hand and one more jump will get
you inside the hollow statue. Save immediately. Fight/run to the
left. If things get too sticky, cast Lightning. Go to the monitors
to the left and turn them off in this order: 2, 1, 4, 3. Then pull
the red lever to the right. All the magicians get freed. They then
proceed to make a hole in the fence for you to get in.
Stand on the lift and go up. Watch. Go down the lift and run to
the next hole to the SW. In the next level, you will notice a
locked gate to the W. You have to go to the SE, down some stairs
and slaughter the green elephant. He has the key. Go back up and
go through the locked gate, stand on the lift to the NW and go
down. In the next level, the same thing, more or less - a green
elephant has the key to the next gate. You finally catch up with
I couldn't get to him before he cut the chain (not enough magic
points/clovers left) but in any case I don't think you are meant
to. Kill FunFrock and advance to the edge of the lava. Watch.
Jerome has saved the children.
Watch the finale past the last credits. A bit soppy, but fun.
What a tremendous game! Brilliant! Roll on LBA 3!
