Cadaver is a puzzle solving Adventure/RPG game by the Bitmap Brothers.
Gameplay takes place in a orthogonal view, with the player guiding the dwarf
Caradoc up through five treachorous levels of the castle.
I was actually surpised that no walkthrough seemed to exist for Cadaver, since
its pretty alright game, so I decided to endevour to make one myself.
Currently only the complete solutions to levels 1, 2, and 4 are provided, with
partial solutions to 3 and 5 (as far as I've got). If anyone can add details,
PLEASE, PLEASE, email at:
Starting at different levels
Cadaver uses a special data system for defining each level. Thus, you can
start play on a different level simply by copying the files in the data
subdirectory of the level you wish to level 1. The batch file below should be
typed in and saved in the directory Cadaver is located in under the name
IF EXIST DATA\0\ROUTINE1.TAD GOTO NOCOPY
REM NO BACKUP OF 1ST LEVEL EXISTS, SO MAKE COPY
COPY DATA\1\*.* DATA\0 > NUL
IF NOT "%1" == "1" GOTO NOTONE
COPY DATA\0\*.* 1 > NUL
COPY DATA\%1\???%1.* DATA\1\???1.* > NUL
COPY DATA\%1\ROUTINE%1.TAD DATA\1\ROUTINE1.TAD > NUL
LEVEL should be invoked with a number from 1 to 5, which indicates the level
wish to start at. Note that you should be carefull with saved games saved
different levels started in this manner; loading a saved game for a different
was started at will crash the program.

southern one can give you gold, stamina potions, and also a key. [it will
break after it gives you the key; it unlocks the door in the S, W, NW room
which leads back into the room which had four demons in it], the northern one
can give you multiple tokens, and the middle one can give you lots of tokens,
but the chance is smaller.
E, into the room with four pits. Fall down the western pit. You'll need to
throw the switch reasonably quickly. Do this by stacking two bottles on the
southern end of the chest [without moving it], and making a diagonal jump from
one corner of the chest onto it [diagonal so the wall stops you from jumping
right over it]. Throw the switch and get back the bottles and the key. Open
chest and get the stuff. When the clock has completed three circuits, a lock
should appear on the northern wall. Quickly unlock it with the key to raise
the bars. N, get unknown [stamina] potion. E, N. In this flame room wait
around a bit [you wont get hit by the fire bolts as long as you don't move
into them; they won't appear on a position if you stay still]. S, pick up the
Unlock door wand, Bless potion, and Mind Blast. S, S, S [teleport].
E, S, N, give the potion which aids eternal rest to the thief. He'll tell you
about needing four gold keys in the main room. As you recall you had one which
you unlocked lock 1 with, and you should currently have another gold key which
you got from the room to the south. Once the other two gold keys are found,
the locks should be unlocked in the order 1, 4, 3, 2 [you've done 1 already].
Anyway, look at the thief to get a mind blast spell, S, E, N, E. Fall in the
northern pit and collect all the gold, and then follow the route back to the
four pit room again. Then fall down the southern pit. Put some objects in
front of the door to prevent roots growing and blocking your escape, and then
pick up the sacks as they appear. Once finished, follow the root [heh heh]
back to the four pit room again.
E, E, run to the eastern side of the room [where the demons wont hit you].
Cast dispel evil, and then hit the left one with a diagonally thrown shirikan,
and then the right one when it pauses between shots. Cast unlock door on door,
N, E. The symbols on the posts must match the ones in the room two screens to
the west. Do this by pressing the levers in the order left, right, right,
left. Press button, E. Read the books to get info. W, W, W, press button, W,
open chest, get planet. E, E, N, E, drag chest to the fourth column of squares
on the wall from the left. Stand on chest and jump to open hidden panel. Get
the small moon. W, N, E, read books: one of them (a book on marriages) has an
unknown [unlock chest] spell, examine tapestry and get key.
W, W, place candles in the center of the tiles which touch the eastern door
[this will block missiles which start]. Fall into section get chest, and when
bars rise, throw the switch, and drop an object on tile which has changed to
depress the switch [dont know what it does]. Get the candles, and go E. Open
chest and take the two gold coins [DONT TAKE THE BRONZE COIN!]. Now would be a
time to drop a whole bunch of stuff you've been lugging around that you don't
need in one of the rooms, like spare Shirikans, Mind blast spells, [you wont
be needing weaponary again in this level], stamina potions, etc. You can
always come back for them.
W, W, open chest, and get the spells. Cast read magic on the unknown scroll.
Go back to the Adding machine room. One of the books in the library told you
four numbers: 29, 32, 16, 7. You've got to form those totals using the four
levels (where up is add, down is subtract, and middle is nothing). Set the
levels in each of the four patterns to give the correct totals (U=up, D=down,
29: D U N U 32: D D U U
16: U D D U 7: U D U N
W, cast unlock on chest, get planet, W, get planet, E, N. You should have four
planets by now, which must be placed on the correct poles according the books
on the planets scattered around. To do this, go S, E, N, W, W, S to the upper
room and drop the planets into the following order:
fiery-planet NW hole little moon E hole
2-moon planet SW hole earth-like planet SE hole
Return to the Planetorium, and the four planets should be atop the spikes, and
the globe stopped spinning. Push the button in the globe, and two hidden
panels will reval the final two gold keys.
Return to Central Hall, either by the southern route or via the northern door
in the passage [make sure all the lone switches in that area of the castle are
down, and fiddle with the switch by the door to open it]. Unlock the three
locks in the order lock 4, lock 3, lock 2 to complete the level and be
transported to the fifth, and final level.
A few points unsolved sofar: the use (if any) of those four quartz rocks I
found earlier, getting into the room to the east of where you entered the
level, and the final cryptic message in a book: in the North East tower the
lever brings great rewards (might be the room to the east of where you started
which I haven't got into yet).
Pick up the marble, E, pick up the marble, step on oe of the small tiles to
make a skull appear, put marbles in skull, E, get two potions on pedestals, E,
flick first switch, second switch, stand in very northern end of eastern end
of passage to avoid getting hit by the twirlys, then when they're moving to
the left open the secret panel behind the second block and get the potion.
Keep trying E until you get through.
Pick up emerald, E,
