SOLUTION FOR NORMALITY INCTo travel around the city of Neutropolis the player must go to one of thebus stops, there is at least one at each location. If he USES the busstop he will be presented with the map screen. This is represented by asmoggy panorama of the city. As each new location is revealed one of theexisting buildings will light up.1. In the apartment:EXAMINE the sofa to find the MONEY and the GADGET. (These appear on thefloor after Kent has broken the settee.) PICK UP the Cushion off the bed,this will reveal the REMOTE CONTROL. PICK UP the REMOTE. PICK UP andEXAMINE the Flyer on the floor near the door. This and the TV will hintthat a good way to get into the factory would be to go and get a jobthere.

Go into the Bathroomand PICKUP the SHARKPOON from the bath. PICK UP the T-SHIRT from thecabinet made from fruit rhinds (Kent's disguise).

USE the Window again to climb out.2. Dai's Window-Cleaner CradleSimply TALK to Dai and listen to what he has to say. He needs a cup ofcoffee. (See the option "Can you take me down?" ) USE Window to climbback in to the apartment.1. In the apartment:Go to the kitchen.

The Plush-Rest Factory ReceptionUSE Doors to open them.WEAR (USE with picture of Kent) the T-SHIRT, to fool PRU.Walk up to the Woman in the middle of the hall and talk to her. Thisgives you permission to go through the door at the far end of the hall.Do so. Turn to your right and go into the Hospitality niche. To enter USEDoors. USE the Water Machine to get a white cup. PICK UP the cup forlater. USE the Bizarre Sculpture (really a coffee machine) and a smallcup of coffee will appear on the floor. PICK UP the cup. (At this pointthere will be an animated sequence of Kent destroying the room becausethe coffee is hot, he drops it and blunders round the room!) Tiddler(Boss man of test) will walk in and talk to Kent.4. At the Plush Rest factory.After the cut scene where Tiddler is seen to escort Kent into the factorywe find Kent and Tiddler at the beginning of a conversation. The playershould TALK to Tiddler about everything he can. He will learn about, therunning of the test department, the waste engineers, and something aboutthe gadget he has found. To get the debris go into the small toiletcubicle, stand on the armtidge and USE the grille in the roof. You willnow be in an air duct. Negotiate this small maze-ette and find out wherethe DEBRIS is. PICK UP the DEBRIS, find your way back to the toilet. PICKUP the BELT from in the duct while you are at it. Put the debris on thebed next to the one that the striking tester is lying on. The WASTEENGINEER will come and collect it and take it back to the grinder room.You will realise that the Slumba Swift bed needs power if it is to work.PICK UP the CURRENT SENDER from Tiddler's office and the CURRENTRECIEVER. Use SENDER with the BATTERY. USE the RECIEVER with the barewire. The bed will now work. Again USE the DEBRIS with the bed. This timethe WASTE ENGINEER will come, but this time he will crash and burn. Youcan now get into the grinder room. USE the POWER BOX to turn off theGRINDERS. USE one of the GRINDERS to go up the conveyer belt to theDUMPSTER.5. Meeting Heather.A GDV will show the player crashing through a hatch in the ceiling of thehide-out, covered in little bits of foam, etc. Heather will now talk tothe player. She is playing a tape which sounds like a crowd of burly menwho would like to kill you, all the time she is talking. She will turn itoff when it is agreed that the player can join the group, afterperforming two tasks Broadcast the tape of Brian. Paint the "Sculpture"in the mint Mall. Two new locations will be added to the map. The MINTMALL and The TV STATION.4. The TV StationThere is a SECURITY GAURD on the steps of the building. He will denyentry to wonders within. If you attempt to walk in a GDV will show youflying out of the gate and on to the pavement beyond. By TALKING to himyou will discover that he makes many allusions to rats in his speech.Each time he does so he will twitch a little as if uncomfortable with thethought. Go to the mall, in the thrifty fifty shop PICK UP the RUBBER RATTOY and come back. USE the RAT TOY on the SECURITY GAURD. He will look alittle flustered. By TALKING to the SECURITY GAURD you will learn that areal rat might do the trick. If you cast your mind back you will recallthat there is one trapped in the washing machine back at the flat. Toopen the door of the washer you need a BLOCK OF FROZEN FOOD, cos' it'sheavy and tasteless. To bring the BLOCK OF FROZEN FOOD from the mall tothe flat without it melting you should wrap it in the TOWEL from thebathroom. USE the FOOD on the WASHING MACHINE DOOR, it will now bebroken. You now need something to contain the RAT in for transportation.PICK UP the LITTLE BOX from the top of the micro wave in the kitchen.Take the Rat to the SECURITY GAURD.

Listen to the presenterschattering and watch the codes which flare up on the screen of thecontrol CPU. You should learn that RUN VT A makes the tape of Saul'sdemise run. Logically then RUN VT B should get the tape of the rock godBrian Deluge on the air. Unfortunately the CONTROL COMPUTER is passwordprotected. To get the password go and talk to the ELECTRONIC ENGINEER inone of the other offices, he is struggling to fix a computer. Thepassword is his middle name, this is on his badge. By talking to him youwill learn that he will not divulge his name. Nor will he let you EXAMINEit. You need to make the geeky geezer remove his shirt. Go back to theflat and USE the ACCESS CARD on the BEANS SPLAT. This will scrape a largeamount off the wall. Come back and USE the GUNKY ACCESS CARD on theELECTRONIC ENGINEER. This will make him remove his shirt and throw it atyou. He storms off in a considerable huff demanding that you clean it(you don't). You now have the password (Holen, his middle name) to theediting computer. Access it's inner workings and enter the RUN VT Bcontrol line. A GDV of Brian Deluge will now be played. A recordedperformance of him doing one of his "Tunes". Mission accomplished.6. The MINT Mall.NORM 2782 will not allow you access to the SCULPTURE.Norm says the only reasons he will leave his post would be emergencies.Find out what these are by TALKING to him.

USE the FRUIT CROPPERS withthe LARGE GLIDER SIGN. USE the YAPPY PUPPIES with the SMALL GLIDERS(Twice). You will then see a GDV of loads of gliders flying out over theSHOP LIFTER STOPPER. We then cut back to the game and you can PICK UP theCROPPERS. Go to the CAVE OF COMESTIBLES.

He will appear and dischargethe WEIRD EXTINGUISHER (which he will have confiscated earlier, when Kentarrives with it FULL). Watch the mayhem unfold. You will find yourself ina totally dark place. The only way to light it is to USE the MATCHES withthe photograph of Kent. Watch the GDV of the mall exploding. You will nowhave a chum (NORM 2782), he has a piece of shrapnel in his head and isvery confused by his new thoughts. Go and talk to the group. They willtell you that they now wish to free SAUL, brother of the evil dictatorPAUL. you must go to the ORDINARY OUTPOST (OO from here on in) dressed inNORM 2782's UNIFORM. Locate the prisoner and free him. At the OO. Quitecomplicated this bit. Once the player is inside there are only two waysout. One is via the window which gets broken. The other is by going up tothe roof. You will gather that Paul Nystalux is about to visit the OO.Talk to the RECEPTIONIST. He will tell you to go to the RESEARCH FLOOR.He will give you the code. Use this on the KEY PAD on the lift to yourleft (1572). Talk to the SCIENTIST. Release the prisoner by cutting hisSTRAPS with the SCISSORS. A GDV will show what the prisoner does. PICK UPthe SNOTTY GLASS FRAGMENT and SPANNER. Go into the newly opened lab byUSING the BROKEN WINDOW. USE the glass on the FINGERPRINTS (which are onthe EXTINGUISHER). This lifts them off the surface. The only place to getrid of the evidence is in the GRINDER (although the player does not haveto do this, the plot will branch if he doesn't). TO FIX THE GRINDER. USEthe BROKEN WINDOW to get on to the SCAFFOLD. PICK UP the LADDER. USEPULLEY To get out of the OO. Go to the HAULAGE CONTAINER in the factorycompound. Pick up the LARGE COG lying in the puddle. Use LADDER withCONTAINER to get on top of it. Pick up the SMALL COG from the BROKENMACHINE. Go back to the OO and use both COGS with the SIDE PANEL of theGRINDER. Use more or less anything with the GRINDER to get rid of it,specifically all of the evidence against Kent. This will allow the playerto go on a slightly different fork in the plot. Get rid of the prisonerby getting to grips with the ZOOMTOOB. Put the prisoner in a capsule.Down calls the capsule; red opens the door; put prisoner in capsule; upsends capsule away. The scientist will ask you to go up to the processingfloor and get a new subject. go back down to the lobby in the lift. Talkto the receptionist. Turn the fountain on by treading on the suspect slabbehind the pillar. Talk to receptionist from slab. The receptionist willthen go to the loo. Examine the code he has left lying on his desk, useit on the other lift (the one you haven't used yet). Code 1312 At theprocessing floor, talk to the Norm there and get him to leave. Press thered button or wait, a secret door will now open. This is the mood filterchamber. Look around, examine things, the door will seal behind you.Examine Saul (at end of room), he dissapears. Examine screen, theyreappear. To open the door examine Saul. Unfortunately at this point Pauland a couple of his cronies appear. He will deliver one of two speeches,leading to one of two plot branches. PLOT BRANCH IF YOU DESTROYED THEEVIDENCE AGAINST YOU. If you destroyed the evidence then Paul will be gobsmacked by your (He thinks you are a norm) incompetence. He will sentenceyou to a stint in the cells. This bit is a little bit complicated. Breakthe bench in the first cell by Using it. This reveals a transmitter. Pickup the splint of the bench. Wait to get sucked into the mood filter.Examine the sign that Saul is holding up Wait to get sucked down into thenext cell. Break the bench in here by using it.

Wait to get sucked down into the moodfilter. Examine Saul's sign. Wait to get sucked down into the third andfinal cell. Break the bench in here using the 2X4 picked up in a previouscell (if you didn't get it you will have to go around again). Thisleathering breaks the transmitter here. It is no longer any use. You mustfind another working one from somewhere. Write a note to Saul on thescrap of cloth. Use the gravy for ink. Use the splint from cell one withthe note and pass it across the corridor to Saul. OR show it to Saul inthe mood filter Wait to go into the mood filter once more. Saul shouldhold up a sign with a toilet pictured on it. This is a clue as to thewhere abouts of the next transmitter.

The guard will now attend to your needs.Kent will now be cleaned by the guard. Go into the toilet cubicle. Openthe lid on the cistern. Pick up the third transmitter. Go back to thecell. Wait to go into the mood filter. Once there all hell will breakloose. A LARGE GDV will now play, this shows Kent and Saul escaping tothe roof and Dai being shot by the Norms.
