When you choose your party, choose Bernard, and Razor.
At the start of the game, move Dave west to the front door. Pick up the mat,
then pick up the key. Switch to Bernard and move him to the front door. Do
the same for Razor. Switch back to Dave, unlock the front door with the key
and give the key to Razor.  Enter house, and head Dave and Bernard into the
foyer.  Note that there is no handle on one of the doors. To open it, go over
to the gargoyle on the right, and push it.  Then switch to Bernard and have
him enter the now open door. Use 'what is' to find the light switch, and turn
it on. Go west, avoiding the radioactive slime to the fuse box. Pick up the 
key, and remember where the fuse box is, and the door on the left. Go back to
the foyer. Switch to Dave and head out the front door. Once he is outside 
switch to Bernard and go east and open the door.  Walk to door to the living 
room, here, open old fashioned radio and pick up the radio tube, open cabinet
doors and note the contents. Continune east through the twin doors, and turn
the lights on in the library, go over to the phone, and open the loose panel
just above it. Pick up the blank cassette tape. Save the game and head back
to the foyer.  Get Bernard to open the door next to the Grandfather clock.
You are now in the kitchen. Should you come across Edna here, you will end up
in the dungeon. If this happens, get another person like Dave caught, and Dave
can the push the loose brick under the barred window while Bernard escapes.
Assuming all is well, have Bernard get the flashlight on the counter, then go
east, open refriderator, pick up Pepsi, then east twice, into the pantry.

Exit to the radio room and examine the wanted poster.  Save game.

Shortly the bell will ring, Ed will go to down to get his mail.  Make sure 
that there is no one in the corridor, or else it's a trip to the dungeon.
However, you will have to beat Ed to the mail, so switch to Dave, and have
him go and get the package from the mailbox.  When Ed comes out, he will 
ignore you.  Now open package and switch to Razor.  Go to Bernard.  Give

outside the front door.  Open the bushes, then open the grate and go in.  
Follow the pipes east until you come to what is lrft of the spilt devoloper

flashlight and enter the room through the door in the paint blotch on the 
wall.  Examine the left hand side of the wall at the back to find some broken 
wires.  Switch to whoever you left at the fuse box and have them throw the 
curcuit breaker.  Quickly switch back to Bernard, and fix the wires with the 
tools.  Leave the room, then switch to the person at the fuse box, have them 
switch the curcuit breaker back on and leave the room.  Next, switch back to

Leave here, and position Bernard just outside Edna's room as before.  Have 
Dave phone Edna, then sneak Bernard into her room and go up the ladder.  Use
the wall safe and pick up the sealed envelope.  Switch to Dave and phone Edna
again, then sneak Bernard out, shut the door and wait in the radio room.  Then 
go downstairs to the pool and refill your jar.  Shortly Dr Fred will indicate 
that the power will be shut off for five minutes, this is just another chance 
to repair the broken wires if you failed to do so earlier.  Get all your 
charactures in the foyer and switch to Bernard.  Give the stamps to Razor,
and the small key and key card to Dave, save game and then head Bernard to 
the kitchen.  Save game if Edna does not catch you.  Open the microwave oven,
and put the envelope and jar of water in it.  Close the oven and turn it on.

stamps on envelope.  Give quarter to Dave.  Now (still as Razor), head 
upstairs and use envelope with typewriter (in the family room).  You must

Now use demo tape with envelope.  Once done, go back downstairs and outside.
Use envelope in mailbox, pull flag.  Leave Razor by the front steps for later.
Switch to Dave, and go to the arcade room.  Go to 'Meteors Mess' and use
quarter in slot.  Note Dr Freds high score of 5858 which is also the combinat-
ion to the secret lab.  However, if he has not played the machine yet, you
will have to wait and watch.  Also, to get your quarter back, you must use the
small key with coin box.

The doorbell should ring shortly as this is a conmtract for Green tentacle
from the three dudes.  Get Razor to pick it up.  If the doorbell hasn't rung 
yet, switch to Bernard, who should still be in the radio room, and get him to
turn on the radio.  Use the radio and call the police on 3412.  Switch to 
Razor and go into the front room and give the rusty key to Dave.  Now get
Razor to push the gargoyle, switch to Dave and send him down to the basement.
Next unlock the door with the rusty key and enter the dungeon.  Unlock the 
upper padlock with the glowing key, then unlock the lower padlock with the 
glowing key.  Dave will take care of the Meteor.  Use the combination from the
arcade machine to open the inner door.  If the meteor police have been,
examine dungeon floor and you should find some ID.  Once you have the ID,
enter the Zombiematic room and give the badge to Purple Tentacle.  If you 
don't have the ID, then have Razor give the contract to Dave, then as Dave, 
give it to the Green Tentacle.  Green would then guard Dave under any 
circumstances and thus he would had been able to enter safely.  From here you
can now enter to where Sandy is.  Move Dave past here over to the locker, 
open it, use radiation suit, use card key in slot of automatic door, enter in
to meteor room, then pull switch to save Sandy, Dr Fred, and finsh the game,
