Professor Fly demonstrates the teleport machine.

Requirements:

Dan wants to be the tester of the machine. Prof. Fly says it is morally reprehensible to do so since the machine is in the zeta stage of development and is lethal especially to the liver.

There are 3 requirements:

1. One should be completely expendable to society.

2. The life expectancy should be less that 1 year, 2 months, 9 days and 37 minutes.

3. The volunteer must pass a psychological test.

Pass a psychological test:

Ask about the Poet. Learn that he published 3 poetry books already. He is now repeating himself. The theme of the poetries is the same - pain.

Send the Professor back to the ceiling. Exit the ship.

Poet 1:    Dan talks to the poet. See that he is burning his hand with the ray of the sun.

The poet gets an inspiration and recites: An internal sun scorches my skin, two-faced, cruel.

He wants more pain and Dan is going to give it to him.

Poet 2:    Go to the black board at left. Use the claw on the board. Ouch!

The poet gets an inspiration and recites: My ear, by a thousand bees mortally wounded, burst joyfully.

Poet 3:    Go right to the mansion. Take and open the charangote (guitar case) beside the El Chupacabras having his siesta.

It is a kit for making Margaritas. The salt shaker is shaped like a cactus.

The poet gets an inspiration and recites: Like a ravenous zombie, my right eye devours my brain.

Poet 4:    Go right to the mansion and then go left twice to the car.

Pick up the corkscrew on the grass by Dan's foot. It is Mr. Death's soul extractor.

Go back to the poet and give him the soul extractor. Ugh!

The poet gets an inspiration and recites: And you think that doesn't hurt? I lost a molar.

Take the test:    Go back to the ship and call Fly down from the ceiling. Ask to take the test.

Select the verses recited by The Poet.

     

A hellish sun scorches my skin, implacable, two-faced, cruel.

  My ear, by a thousand bees mortally wounded buzzing, thunderously ruptures.   Like a ravenous zombie, my right eye devouring my brain.   How is that not supposed to hurt? I've lost a molar.

Congratulations! Send the Professor back to the ceiling. Exit the ship.

Be socially expendable:

Call Professor Fly from the ceiling. Ask how to be considered to be socially expendable.

Prof. Fly says that he won't discuss it since he's employed by The Quill newspaper. Ah - employed. Send the Professor back to the ceiling.

Take the camera on the floor between the 2 machines. Exit the ship.

Falcon Spirit:   Go to the car left of the mansion. It was loaned to Dan by his editor. It is the editor's wife's car.

Professor declares Dan socially expendable.

Have a minimum life expectancy:

Breatholator:    Go to the right area of the lab. Use the scale by the right wall.

Lower life expectancy:    Exit the ship and go by the storeroom.

Take the leaf at the right corner in front of the entrance to storeroom. Tobby dropped it. Every winter, Tobby dies.

Life-o-meter:    Go back to the lab at the ship. Go to the breatholator at right corner.

Use the Life-o-meter. Dan has 5 years, 6 months, 12 days and 9 hours left.

Use Tobby's leaf on the life-o-meter. Dan chews the leaf and takes the test. He now has 0 years, 0 months, 19 days and 3 hours left.

Fly is informed. Dan passes all the tests - the perfect volunteer.

Infiltrating The Temple of Eternal Illusion:

See the machine test. Dan exits the other machine.

Dan has to send one of the machines to the residence of High Priestess Krom-Ha.

Call Fly and tell him:  Teleporting yourself 5 meters is for amateurs.

Get Krom-Ha's pendant:

Dan:

Krom-ha wants Dan to stay by her side forever and satisfy her need.

Dan wants to order the robots to open the other sarcophagus. Krom-Ha says that only the wearer of the pendant Dr. Zelssius made is obeyed by the robots. She never takes the pendant off her neck. Just ask the Oracle of the Shadows.

Dan has the bat and the remote control in inventory.

Give 8 hieroglyphics to the Oracle of the Shadows:

Look around in the bedroom. Talk to Krom-Ha. Learn that she is a mummy. Learn also where the Oracle is located. Exit the bedroom.

Look around at the hall.

Oracle:    Enter one of the double doors stated by Krom-Ha as the room of the Oracle of Shadows.

Dan talks to the Oracle. The Oracle knows all about Dan. The only way to get the pendant is to send her back. To do that Dan needs to read the Book of the Dead. The Oracle will give a syntax test to see if Dan knows how to read hieroglyphics so that he doesn't bring cataclysm to the world.

Look around at the room and then exit.

Discover the trick about the Trick Mummy:

Enter the far door at right to be at the sarcophgium.

See 7 sarcophagi. A mummy is seen in a sarcophagus. Then it is gone. Then another sarcophagus opens and the mummy is there.

Dan has to find out the trick done here. This is a random shell puzzle.

By doing more opening of the sarcophagi: note that he mummy starts and then jumps to another sarcophagus that is either 3, 4 or 5 sarcophagi away to the right (clockwise). So if the mummy appears 3 (4 or 5) sarcophagi away, count of to the third (fourth or fifth) sarcophagus and he will be there.

Take the dagger the mummy is holding. Look at it in inventory and see a snake hieroglyph on the handle. That's one hieroglyph.

Syntax test:    The Oracle gives the syntax test.

A set of hieroglyphs are placed in the frame. A sentence is stated.

The object of the puzzle is to select the correct hieroglyphs from the list.

Ignore the question given by the Oracle.

The solution is based on the location of the hieroglyph on the frame and the list. Find the hieroglyph that is positioned on the frame that matches the position of its name on the list. For example: select lapdog - if the lap dog hieroglyph tile is third from left to right on the wood frame and the word lapdog is also the third on the list from top to bottom.

You need to do 5 correct selections in a row.

The Oracle gives a beetle - it is the key that opens the place that holds the Book of the Dead.

The Oracle had a change of heart in revealing the place where the book is kept. He loves Krom-Ha.

Get the Book of the Dead:

At the hall, look at the fountain with 2 female statues at left. The pond is full of bugs. They are all male.

Check the beetle in inventory. It is a female bug. Use the female beetle on the pond full of male beetles.

Queenie does something for Liz. She paints the head on McDundee's portrait.

McDundee likes the look of Queenie and gives the safe combination.

Liz opens the safe and gets the medal-courage that FitzRandolph took.

Talk to McDundee again.

Confront fear:

5-crocodile:    Enter the elevator. Press the bottom middle button.

Now that Liz has courage, enter-walk in the crocodile's mouth. Liz hops into the mouth.

Get half a button for that effort.

Overcome shame:   

14-bathroom:    Enter the elevator and press the top right button.

Exit into a bathroom. Take the shower head.

5-crocodile:    Go back to the crocodile room.

Remember what Armando said about where to find a dance card.

Click the shower head on the card tree at left. Liz can't reach it. The Poet comes and lifts Liz.

Go back to the bathroom. Turn the faucet to get water.

Go back to the crocodile room. See that the card tree is loaded with ripe and plump cards and is leaning.

Take a card and Liz automatically takes one with a pencil.

Automatically, Liz is at the ballroom talking to Armando.

The first dance is a tango but the orchestra doesn't know how to play.

Orchestra plays tango music:    Liz has to teach or lead the orchestra to play tango.

Look close at the orchestra. See 6 flowers.

This is a random puzzle.

Armando says that they have to be in unison and not all should be heard.

1. Learn which instrument and the music played by each flower:    Click on a flower and hear musical instrument play. The center has a color. There are notes of the same color moving at the side.

Listen to the music and see if it is tango music.

Click on that flower again and the music is turned off.

Click on another flower and hear another instrument play. The flower is another color. The notes also move at the side.

Do this to all the flowers so that you know which flower is played by what instrument. The instruments are the piano, violin, bass and drums.

See that not all 6 flowers-instrument are applicable to tango music. 4 out of 6 flowers play tango music. The other 2 flowers-music are noise.

2. Play-click the flowers in unison:    The music-flowers have to produce the correct rhythm.

Watch the notes moving on the side.

If they are not in unison, the flowers wilt and a new puzzle with the instruments are now in different flowers.

I tried to get the flowers to start their music together. Play one instrument. When it starts over - start the next instrument at the same time, then join the third and lastly the fourth.

Armando asks Elisa-Liz to dance. Liz dances but definitely not a tango.

Liz gets the other half of the button.

Find one true wish:

The 2 halves of the button fuse and the complete button is placed at bottom right slot-25 of the elevator panel.

Liz enters a jungle room and finds Tarzan-Dan. Talk to Tarzan Dan. He has very limited vocabulary.

Liz finds her one true wish.

Chapter 6

Dan:

Dan tells a comatose Liz to be strong and to fight. He wants to know where the boxing tickets are.

Professor Fly calls Dan. He tells Dan not to disturb Liz.

Professor Fly tells Dan to get 2 components for the chip extractor he is making and to keep FitzRandolph away from the lab.

The escape is being discussed by the think tank - the 3 best minds in the world: Big Albert, The Poet and the Immaterial Man are in conference.

Think Tank:    Go right and see the 3 wise men talking behind the glass panel. The Immaterial Man was coated by paint to keep track of him.

Talk to anyone of them and Dan will press the button at left and hear what they are deep in discussion about.

Keep FitzRandolph away from the laboratory:

Lab:    Go to the lab at bottom of screen. Check Liz and Dr Zelssius.

Press the button of the switch left of the metal door. Ooops!

Exit through the elevator at end of the ramp above.

Secret entrance:    Dan exits to the main building through the secret entrance behind the vending machine.

Try to open the secret entrance. Uh oh! Look around at the posters and statues.

Projection room:    Go left and look through the door at right. Dan sees FitzRandolph viewing a film featuring an Amazon, fat guy and Liz. Looks like an interview.

FitzRandolph opens the door and talks to a supposedly chipped Dan. FitzRandolph is viewing an advertisement. He will be down at the lab after the viewing. Afterwards he asks Dan to come talk to him.

Set-Recording studio:    Enter the room at left.

Dan talks to Eva Morte and Grim Reaper, the 2 most hated actors. They are chipped and are behaving themselves. They are now spokespeople of FitzRandolph.

Check Liz' coat hanging on the coat rack by the door.

Go left and check Liz' purse on the table.

See a box with a bracelet and note. It was given to Liz by Barry Zelssius.

Dan takes the boxing tickets. Dan realizes that it was not the tickets but helping the others through this problem that makes him continue on.

Check the chair left of the purse and take the letter. Look at the note in inventory and see B025.

Keep Randolph away from the lab:    Exit the room.

Knock on the projection room door and talk to FitzRandolph.

Ask FitzRandolph not to go to the lab because Zelssius and I need privacy. Dan shows the bracelet and note.

FitzRandolph says that he will cancel his visit to the lab.

Find materials for the chip extractor:

Secret entrance:    Use the note taken from the set chair on the vending machine.

Dan punches in the 4 digits of the note and the entrance opens.

Behind the metal door:    Enter the metal door at right.

See a barrel of gunpowder by the window.

Take the robot head on the ground at left.

Go back to the lab.

Materials for Professor Fly:    Go to Zelssius' area under the stairs.

Go left and call Fly down. He needs a chip and a glass that Zelssius uses to charge them.

Use the robot head and later the bracelet on Fly at the ceiling.

Fly leaves to make the chip extractor.

Liz:    Dan talks to a comatose Liz. Be strong like a rock.

Tarzan Dan gives Liz a rock. Liz uses the rock to break the glass wall separating her and the other Liz.

Liz talks to the other Liz. Liz realizes that the other Liz is still under the influence of FitzRandolph's chip.

LIZ:

Get help from Anne-Marie:

Enter the elevator. Top left button-41 is back to other Liz. Top right-30 is Anne-Marie's studio.

Go to Anne Marie. Talk to Anne Marie who is 5 minutes older than Liz.

Voodoo:    Learn about the voodoo doll experience that Liz had in New Orleans. Liz thinks that she needs 2 personal objects to place on the doll. She can then have control over the person that owns those 2 personal objects. The baby sitter that Liz tried this on was Stacy.

Anne Marie can play any musical instrument.

See and click on Queenie's voodoo painting at left. Click on the painting several times and Liz will see a doll in the painting.

Look around the room.

Zelssius at 68th floor:    Go to elevator and press the 68th floor.

See the reason why the other Liz is still under Fitzpatrick's influence.

Look at Zelssius. Try to talk to Zelssius. He can't see or hear Liz. Hmm...

Get voodoo doll:    Go to the elevator and press the button at bottom right-52. Be back at Tarzan-Dan's cave.

Take the tom tom on floor at bottom left. Check the menhir behind Dan.

Talk to Dan and learn about the witch doctor.

When the knife is asked, Liz fails the knife throwing but gets an apple.

Go back to Anne Marie at 30th floor. Give her the tom tom to play. Anne Marie wants a sheet music to play the tom tom with.

Take the jacket hanging left of the door.

Get sheet music:    Go back to Dan at 52nd floor.

Ask about friends and witch doctor. Learn that the witch doctor and Dan watches sports together.

Go back to the other Liz at 41st floor.

Talk to the other Liz about her makeup. Other Liz checks and sees that the makeup director is not here; so she can't change her makeup.

Talk to her again about the makeup person.

When he other Liz leaves for the second time, immediately check the bag. Liz gets the boxing tickets and the bracelet given by Zelssius.

Go back to Tarzan Dan. Give him the boxing tickets.

Tarzan Dan swings back and gives the tribal tom tom sheet music.

Enter the painting:    Go back to Anne Marie at the 30th floor.

Give Anne Marie the sheet music and she plays the drum.

Enter the painting. Liz sneaks by the dancing voodoo priest and takes the voodoo doll.

On the way out of the painting, the phone rings and Anne Marie stops the drumming to answer it. Liz freezes inside the painting.

Exit the room.

Pass the knife throwing trial:

Go to the other Liz at 41st floor.

Check the useful box of tools beside the other Liz. Get the clamp and magnet from the box.

In inventory combine the magnet with apple to get magnetized apple.

Go back to the 52nd floor and Tarzan Dan.

Talk to him to do the knife test again. Watch as the knife hits the magnetized apple.

Free the other Liz from FitzRandolph's yoke:

Go to Zelssius at 68th floor. Look around. The robots turn the gramophone. The beat for the robots is the drumming done by Zelssius.

Zelssius must be topped from hitting the drums.

Check the car and take the parachute on top of it. Maybe another memory.

Use the knife won from Dan on Dr. Zelssius to get a piece of apron.

In inventory combine the piece of apron with the voodoo doll. Cute!

In inventory, combine the voodoo doll with the bracelet. We have the Zelssius face.

Now those are 2 materials on a voodoo doll used to control the person that owns those items - like in New Orleans memory.

Use the clamp on the doll to hold the arms. That controlled the arms of Zelssius and the drumming stops.

Dan:

Cross the line between a mere mortal and a hero:

Liz' other self disappear and the original Liz gets an idea about the advertisement.

See the ad filmed by chipped Eva Morte and Grim Reaper.

Liz wakes up and tells Dan of her plans. They will film a new campaign ad when the 2 monsters are free of the chip.

Fly has finished making the Chip Extractor. Watch the infomercial.

The chips are removed from the 2 monsters. But back to being their own selves, they refused to cooperate.

Dan shows his self sacrificing self. Give the boxing tickets to the monsters.

The monsters and Liz are going to film a new commercial now.

Prepare the film switch:

See FitzRandolph carry the campaign ad film and leave the building.

Dan checks the projection room and sees that it is closed.

Willie's office:    Talk to Willie FitzRandolph completely.

He stands to check the picture on the wall.

Open the projection room:    Go through the secret entrance-vending machine.

Go to Dr. Zelssius working area under the stairs. Look at and take a tea bag from Fly's counter at left.

Go back to the bottom screen to the lab.

Enter the metal door. Take gunpowder from the barrel by clicking the tea bag on it. The tea is replaced with gunpowder. Dan learned his lesson from a memory when he was young - he now knows how much gunpowder to use.

Exit the area and go through the elevator above.

Go to projection room door. Use the gunpowder bag on the projection room door.

Exit through main door to talk to FitzRandolph. Convince him to stop smoking.

FitzRandolph gives his pipe.

Use the smoking pipe on the projection room door. Dan gets Edgar's steam gun.
