Walkthrough by MaGtRo
Read the manual, please do! It's funny. The game
is mouse driven. To skip cut scenes (after you've
seen it before for clues or for fun) click the
right mouse button. The game manipulation is by
clicking a combination of a verb selection and an
item in the display area. The item is identified
on the ID bar above the verb bank when the cursor
is over the item. To perform an action; first
select the verb, then the object you want to use
the verb on and then click the left mouse button.
The default verb is "Walk to" when the
cursor is over the screen and "Look at"
when the cursor is over an inventory. Double
clicking on the screen with no items identified
will return to the default verb. When talking, a
selection is given. Exhaust all possible
selection for conversation and it is best to
choose a polite conversation selection since it
will lead to a more direct response. The sound
effects and music can be toggled on and off by
pressing S and M, respectively .Using the map
will bring Simon automatically to different places and
additional locations will be added once the place
is brought up/seen during game play. Clicking on
the center of the map will exit back to the game.
Using the postcard will bring up the main menu of
save, load, quit and continue. To save, type in
the name you want to describe the saved game and
press enter. Move the cursor all over the screen
to find the active items to examine or pick up.
The inventories that can be picked up are
colored yellow in the walkthrough. I played the
game with lowered graphics and sound acceleration
to stop the lines on the screen and the
stuttering of the dialogue.
During Simon's 12th
birthday, a scruffy dog with a book in his mouth
entered his life. He named the dog, Chippy. In
the opening sequence, the dog is in the attic in
search of the book he came with. He found it in
the chest. Simon in one of his "boyish
sadism" mood decided to look for Chippy to
torture him. In the attic, he threw the book
"The Olde Spell Booke", an action that
opened a portal into another time and place.
Chippy walked through the portal and Simon
followed. Simon is now wearing a wizard robe and
has landed in the midst of goblins and trolls
invoking a magic spell for food. He dropped the
spell book. Simon became the main ingredient in
their lunch. Chippy arrives to save him and in
the next cut scene shows them entering Calypso's
cottage. Simon reads Calypso's note. So, the
adventure is to save Calypso, the grand wizard
from Sordid, the evil sorcerer. Simon can use
Calypso's spell book but before he can use it,
Simon must first become a wizard. There are
wizards in the tavern in the village of Fleur de
lis that can teach him. Thus the village appears
in the map.

blocked by the guard, go down the steps and look
for another way out. Find a druid manacled on the
rack. Open the iron maiden. Pick up the flaming
brand at the center of the room. Pick up the mints

he is really mad!! While Sordid is about to
pounce on you the phone rings. It is for you.
Calypso wants you to delay Sordid so that he can
