MICRO DRIVIN
Written by Clive Wilson & Les Hogarth (Softel)
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (C64 Version)

Notes
1. You may visit the locations out of turn, ie. going to say Hunny Hill when the clue directs you to
Blackgang, but you won't find anything there.
2. Stopping the car where there is no adventure location, gives the message "Nice view from
here."
3. Stopping the car in the country causes somebody behind to crash into you.
4. You can only travel one way around the island - if you overshoot, you are forced to drive around
the road system again.
5. There are two mazes which you shouldn't enter as there is no way out.
6. Directions in the car are F = forward, B = back, L = left, R = right and REVERSE. On foot you
must go N = north, S = south, E = east and W = west.
7. When presented with a choice of three objects you can only choose one. The one you choose will be
relevant to the clue you have just been given, or the town you are in. At the end of the game you
receive 100 points for each correct object.
