Your goal is
to collect items representing innovations throughout history and put them
into a chain of connections. When
you find an item and it’s placed in your chain, click it to see an interesting and educational video about that item and the
relation to other items in the chain. When the chain is finished, you automatically go to another area of game. About the
only drawback in the game, it has to be started from disc 1 each time.
You stand facing
a castle. Check the control box just right of the drawbridge. Look under
the carpet in front of the castle.
Turn around and enter the building with a single door. Examine the window inside. Turn and talk to Mr. Burke, who
appears several times throughout the game. When you’re alone, examine the picture of Africa on the wall. Nearby, click
the steel balls and notice the clicks. Turn the globe to Africa and you’ll discover a safe behind the wall picture.
card on the desk (faint imprint of some numbers.) Get the pencil. Click
it’s image on your chain. Do this for
all new images on the chain. In the middle drawer, uncover the card and notice the five digit number. Could these be
related to the clicks of the steel balls? Anyhow, it’s the combination to the safe, which contains a couple of shillings.
In the right
drawer, there should be some carbon paper. Rub it over the card with the
imprint. Play the message on the
phone. Be sure to rewind it. Make sure you’ve examined everything on the desk and in the room. At the building with two
doors, enter the Apothecary on the left. Buy the yellow bottle on the shelf. Exit and enter the Electronics shop next door.
oscilloscope, TV, etc. Play the video tape on the TV (it’s critical.) You
learn about a drawbridge opener and
a certain voltage. Go back to the office. Remember the phone number you found on the card? It’s to the Electronics
shop. Make the call and immediately play the answering machine when the shop owner answers.
Go to the shop
and get the oscilloscope. It’s useless until you restore the phosphor coating
to its screen. Maybe a trade
at the Apothecary will help. Once the oscilloscope has been repaired, go to the drawbridge and open the control box.
Place the scope inside and set the proper voltage that you learned about in the video tape. Enter the Castle.
NOTE: R means turn right, L means turn left, F means go forward once, F2 means forward twice, and so on.
ahead past the fountain. Talk to the guard. R, F, R, F, L. Go down steps
to the pump station. Get the shovel.
Examine the pump. Face away from it to see the flooded stairway leading down. Go back upstairs and exit to the
fountain. Go straight ahead to the other red door. There’s a sword in the stone. This is your ticket past the guard. Turn
right to a small doorway. Get a condenser from the crate. Return to the Apothecary.
The woman should be gone. Get a match and a bucket. Return to the castle pump room.
Use the condenser
on the side of the pump. Get a bucket of water, from the flooded stairwell,
and use it on the
condenser. Use your shovel on the coal. Open the furnace and use the shovel on it. Light the furnace and use the shovel
on it again. Go down the drained stairwell. Lower the two sword switches, on the control bank, all the way.
Return to the
sword room and get the sword. Show it to the guard. Try to get the jewel
from the crown. Try again. Go
back down to the control room and look at the computer screen on the right of the control bank. Get the idea? At the
three wall switches, set them left to right false, false, true. Go get the jewel from the crown and examine it and anything
new on your chain.

yourself. Take the role from the piano
slot. Check the image on your chain. Talk to the gambler. Eventually, the phone rings. Answer it and get a dollar. Talk to
the gambler again and show him your dollar. Carefully notice the order that he lays the cards down. Change them to that
order but from left to right, QKQQKKK. You get the gambler’s keys and a carburetor.

Look at the
code chart and write down the codes for dynamite. -.., -.--, -., .-, --,
.., -, . and tap them on the key. Keep the
dashes long and the dots short. This is relatively easy with a telegraph key, but with your mouse it’s quite different. For
instance, the letter N -. give a long blast, then immediately give a short blast without hesitation. If you pause between the
- and the . it will be interpreted as two different letters. After you correctly tap out the word dynamite, you win that very
item, which is needed to clear the mine entrance. Return to the Orpheum.
Go under the
stage to the hydraulics room. Click the plaque on the wall, up for off,
down for on. Adjust all valve arrows up
to shut them off. Adjust the upper right valve down for on. Adjust the lower left valve, by the meter, down for on. Working
your way back to the upper right valve, there are three additional valves to turn on (down) so that steam can go from the
upper right valve to the meter and raise it to 100.
If you have
too much trouble, consult the built in hint feature for a drawing of the
valves. When the meter registers, go
around the halls to backstage and the hydraulic lift. Ride it up, turn around and go forward to the attic room on the left.
Put your piano roll in the loom and turn it on. If it’s the correct one, you will get a rug with some red symbols on it. This is
a code to a puzzle in the mine. Once you get the rug with symbols, go to the mine entrance.
Use the dynamite
to clear the entrance and try to find your way through the mine with the
miner’s map or do the
following: F4, L, F2, R. F2, L, F2, L. F2, R, F2, R, F2, R. Click the light patch, on the wall, for a sliding tile puzzle. Click
your pattern rug on the puzzle. Solve it and turn around. Go forward and get the gold nuggets. In hints, use the magic
square to get out or do the following: turn around, go back to the light colored patch and turn right. Then, F2, L, F2, L.
