  • Alt+x to quit the game.
  • F1 to display the help.
  • F2 to display the game manual.
  • F3 to display the game info (they are a bit obsolete though!).
  • F4 to change the text speed.

Use the left mouse button click:

  • On a verb in the verb bar to select a verb. The default selected verb is Go.
  • On an object or person to apply the select verb.

Use the right mouse button click to perform the default action:

  • On a door, Open/Close the door.
  • On a button, Push the button.
  • On a person, Talk.
  • Otherwise, Look.

Improved mode

When playing the game with ScummVM you can play the game in the improved mode. It is on by default, but if you are a masochist who wants to experience the original frustrating experience you can turn it off in the Engine tab of the game settings.

The improved modes adds the following:

  • Keys 1 to 0 can be used to select a verb.
  • In the first part this performs automatically all the actions to go through the air lock after you have done it once manually.
  • In the second part the Go verb can be used in addition to the Push verb to move a tile in the block sliding puzzle. This means you can just do left mouse button clicks without having to select a verb each time.
  • In the second part the Go verb can be used in addition to the Push verb to push letter blocks on the wall for the secret door in the Pyramid.
