This is a step by step solution to CRYPT OF MEDEA by
SIR-TECH, an old Apple adventure but well done.  I hope that
it will take you through the game to a successful
conclusion.  Words with capital letters can be abbreviated
by the capital letters.  The parser looks for four letter
words which can save some typing. Save the game often
because a wrong step will kill you.  For example, you will
die when you swing on the rope if you are carrying too.
Going East from the lab with the table without the rod will
also kill you.  Also there are things you can do which I
don't mention in the solution which will get you killed.
They are fun to try but not without a save game.  When you
go down through the trap door, you must have the flask,
candle, matches, shovel, and gloves.

get axe, North.
At this point, save the game and turn the sound off with
control s.  Timing is crucial.  You must be prepared to
enter the next three commands quickly.  The timing is
crucial and regular Apple II speed necessary - normal speed
on a GS and will work.
Light bomb, drop bomb, South, North, North, use axe, North,
Up.  You are done - the game records 70 experience points
here.  I don't think that there are any more.
