The Vortex Factor! What is it? What secrets does it hold? The seeker of treasures through time and space must find out! From the colliseum of ancient Rome to the futuristic world of tomorrow...
Playing The Game
The computer is your guide and will interpret all of your two word commands which should be entered as a verb plus a noun.
To pick up a box you might try GET BOX.
To learn more about the box try EXAMINE BOX.
To unlock a door, try UNLOCK DOOR.
To move north, try GO NORTH.
The program has a sizeable vocabulary of verbs and nouns so you can be creative in your choice of instructions. If one phrase doesn't work, try another approach. To speed play the program also understands a number of command abbreviations.
In addition there are commands to ppick up and drop several objects simultaneously. The GET ALL will pick up all objects in your current location (provided you can carry them all) and the PUT ALL command will do the reverse. Some items of objects will not be displayed on the screen so be sure to check the text description at each location for a listing of everything visible. It is a good idea to examine each object for clues and valuable information.
Saving & Loading
If your search for the solution to this puzzle takes longer than planned you may use the SAVE game command to save your current progress. Use the LOAD game command at a later time to resume play.
The SCORE command provides you with the number of moves used during play. The score, load and save commands do not count as moves.
The best advice for adventure gaming is to be logical and try to think of all options. Maintaining a constant curiosity with a careful eye to detail will help you win the game in a minimum number of moves.
