THANKS for replying ... anybody else who can help, please don't be put off !!!
BTW ... it's a nice fairly short & relativey easy game (a few stucknesses as always!).
Here's the problem ..............

I finished this a few months ago ... as far as I remember without any serious problem. Now my wife is playing it (and nearly finished) but is completely stuck near the end and I can't remember to help.

I don't want to give the game away so I'll try to be careful.

Very close to the end it seems (and the walkthru backs this up) that you need a cheese chest (whatever that may be!) --- but she hasn't GOT a cheese chest or any cheese.

PLEASE *** H E L P *** !

If you know where you can find a cheese chest or even some cheese anywhere along the (fairly short) route[s] ... please let us know ASAP.

Thanks in advance .... Len. smile

Sorry Len...I have looked at a couple of W/T with no luck...I don't remember any Cheese..but then it's been a long time since I played the game! I wonder if the original game is different than the "freeware"?? The Spoiler.com has a couple of w/t but I didn't see any mention of cheese.. What is the "Calendra"? that's the only thing I saw in the w/t that I didn't remember...Glynn

Len, I checked the search engines for another walkthrough yesterday and didn't find anything to help. Sorry. There is only one wt for Zak 2 but there's several for Zak 1.

Thanks Glynn & MaG,

I posted this on ½ dozen Sites and I think you were the only ones to react.

Just now, I got the answer from somebody called Jason on Mr. Bill's and my wife finished the game with no trouble.

You're right. There are several walkthrus for "Zak McKracken" proper & also a UHS-File.
"The New Adventures of Zak McKracken" is however a completely different game (AFAIK using the same character & possibly format) made using AGS and distributed Freeware.
I'm almost certain that there is just the one walkthru for that and it bears no resemblance to the original "Zak" game.

Scroll down to the very bottom for "Z". or search for Zak.
