One Dark Night
Walkthrough by Alex Dijkstra for the ZX spectrum

Notes:
-You can choose to play as Jon or Anne.
-When you command the other character sometimes you are ignored. If this happens just repeat the
command.
-You can carry six objects in your inventory but the other character can carry an unlimited amount
of objects for you.

You enter a large cavern which is another maze. The exits in room 71 and 72 change when you hear
"a rumbling sound". The outer rooms aren't affected by the sound (see the map of the
large cavern). You start in room 70 (see map) and have to make you way to room 7e where you can go
up and leave the maze through a grate. If you are very lucky you can leave the maze without rumbling
sound with the following directions:

S, E, E, N, E, N, U, 

This is the only maze inside the game where you are allowed to drop objects to mark the rooms. You
can drop objects you don't need any longer.  You can make it to room 72 by typing S, E, E, N.
From there save and just give it some tries. Eventually you will reach room 7e from room 72 by
typing E, N, U and you will be able to leave the maze up through the grate.

Walkthrough when you are playing Ann:

This is almost identical as playing the game as Jon but because Ann has to wear the coat in the
forest you can carry one object less which you have to give to Jon. Apart from that the only
difference is you have to lower the ladder from the attic of the barn manually
