RADIOMANIA
by K. Burnard
Spectrum 128

This is a very good, very enjoyable game. You need to keep some objects for use 
more than once, and enter some locations more than once.  Most objects, at least 
initially, are used close to the locations in which you found them, so there is 
little retracing of steps. There is one riddle which is easy to solve. Other than 
knowing which objects to keep and which to drop, the challenges are not too great, 
and you can enjoy the game without becoming too frustrated. The instructions 
clearly state verb-noun input. The verbs are standard, or if not, consider what you 
would do in that situation. There is only one minor glitch that I can see, and that 
is that, sometimes you need to say "in" or "up" following the verb, which, in my

vocabulary is not a noun. So ignore that minor imperfection and play the game 
before resorting to the following walkthrough. REDESCRIBE often (even after you 
have done something in that location), as there may be objects you can take. 
Remember to STAND BACK at one location. I thoroughly enjoyed this game.

There is an unusual "perk" (or bug if you want to call it that) to this game. You 
can type UP… <noun of one of the objects you have> and find yourself in another 
location. This can help you see what objects you may need in the future and which 
directions you can go.
