CITY OF EHDOLLAH or SACRED RUBY OF TOGGALIDS
Dorling Kindersley Software
Spectrum 48

Hints:
There are random elements in this game. There are monsters to kill. You 
can either fight or retreat. You can SAVE and RESTORE at these times, 
since each time you have a 50/50 chance of killing the opponent. This 
allows you to keep your strength and stamina up. Do the same if you are 
stung, if the tablet falls on you, etc.

Conserve your light.

Can't open the casket. BREAK it.

While the hints say you need the cross to fight Meglin, it is not really 
needed.

There are many red herrings in the game: the sword, the wine, SERPENT 
knife, DRAGON device, wand, the hat.

Can't get up the slope with the Ruby? You need to put it in something. Tie 
one object to another, and then to another. Put what you may need in the 
basket. Don't panic if it is dark when you go up. Then pull the things you 
have. 

The boat is not there on your return? Did you tie it up when you left it?
