Planet of Death Walk Though
Game Map/ Solution

PLANET OF DEATH by Artic
[Updated with Jupiter Ace version details 2008]

This game may be solved using different ways. Here will be given two complete step by step solutions. These solutions are not the shortest solutions, but these are the most logical solutions.

Solution 1:

D, S, E, GET BOARD, N, USE BOARD (to cross the ravine), GET GUN, USE BOARD, N, W, E, N, N, S, E, W, GET ICE, LOOK (not necessary, but it will give you a hint), USE ICE (to slip down the slope), E, GET GLOVES, WEAR GLOVES (this is a protection against a infection from the green man, but due to a bug in the game this is not necessary), W, GET MAN (to release the mirror), DROP MAN, KILL MAN (else a chance exist that the man wake up and kill you), WITH GUN, GET MIRROR, E, OPEN DOOR, GET KEY, W, W, S, SMASH FIELD (it has weakened it; a gun is needed for this), SMASH FIELD (the field will now be weak enough), DANCE (to pass through the weakened field; you must have the mirror, else you will fall and be captured), KILL SECURITY MAN (else you risk to be killed later), UNLOCK DOOR, WITH KEY, PUSH 3, PUSH 2, PUSH 1 (the lift will activate; the order of pushing is very important, else a fuse will blown), E, E, GET MOTOR (needed to start the ship), W, ENTER SHIP, PUSH AUX (the ship will flow into the lift), PUSH 4 (the end).

Solution 2:

GET FLINT, D, CUT ROPE, WITH FLINT, GET ROPE, S, E, GET BOARD, N, USE BOARD (to cross the ravine), GET GUN, USE BOARD, N, W, W, USE ROPE (to climb down the pit), E, GET GLOVES, ...

Now continue like in Solution 1.

Hints:

- You may skip all sentences in the solution which cause the message HOW? For example, instead of KILL MAN then WITH GUN, you can type only WITH GUN or USE GUN. However, I include such sentences in the solution to make the solution more logical.

- Look drawing in damp limestone cave for a hint about using rope.

- Try HELP in the maze: a hint is "Points of compass" - really, the exit from the maze is NSEW...

- To find a gold coin, get boots from a strange house, wear boots, go to the lake, and enter lake.

- To escape from the prison cell, look up, break bars and go up. Alternatively, you can use coin to bribe security guard which will open the door, but this may be done only once (because you will lose a coin)!

- If you blow a fuse, you can use bar (from the prison cell) to repair fuse.

- Wearing the slimy gloves are planed as a protection against the slimness of a green man, but due to a bug in the game, this is not necessary to solve the game.

- Type help on computer in the computer room for a hint where is a space ship.

- You can use block of ice from the ice cave to break stalactites in a limestone cave, and to get a stalactite; however, I don't see any usage of it. Also, I believe that stones have not any usage in the game.

Comment:

This game (also known as Adventure A) is very limited, but don't forget that this is a game for 16K Spectrum. However, this game was very famous, it was firstly released for ZX81.

The parser is two-word parser, that's why I have problems for solving the game. For example, when I tried 'CUT ROPE' I got the message 'HOW?'. Later I tried 'CUT ROPE WITH FLINT', but without effect. You need to give 'WITH FLINT' as separate sentence, or simply to type 'USE FLINT' instead. Unfortunately, nothing about this is printed on the cassette cover

Known Issues Jupiter Ace version.

- SAVE Option will not work.

- 32K Jupiter Ace rampack is needed.
