URQUAHART CASTLE
Written by Colin Sellwood
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Spectrum Version)

Notes
1. You can only carry three items, plus any items worn.
2. You only have a few moves to change your clothes before the Professor catches you.
3. I had a problem with lighting the lamp.  When you light the match the object is not picked up,
therefore you cannot light the lamp with it.  The game is not programmed to allow you to pick up
the
lit match making it impossible to continue.  In order to complete the game the database was
modified.
CORRECTION – Keep trying to GET LIT and it will work second or third time.
4. Make sure you don't break the door and read the parchment before you lever the lid with the
crowbar, otherwise you never will!  This is because flag 27 is set when you read the parchment
which
prevents you levering the lid off the coffin.
5. Once the food has been picked up you should go immediately to where the Troll is before the
black
cat eats it.
6. You can also PULL BOOK in the library to reveal a secret tunnel to the west.
7. If you take too long the sun won't be shining in the hall at the end of the game.
8. Don’t enter the chemical room if you are still holding the lit match. It will explode and kill
you!
9. Are you superstitious? Don’t say YES if you want to live!
10. You need both the CRYSTAL and Frankenstein’s BOLT with you outside the castle if you want to
win. Otherwise you will just be left standing there waiting.
