(1) There are FIVE possible ways to complete this adventure; this solution
works with Dave, Syd and Bernard, and should provide insights into solving
the other variations.
(2) In all rooms you must open the door and in many you must also turn on
the light, neither of which is pointed out in this solution.
(3) Don't use the flashlight or the batteries will run out (though you can
find more!). To find a light switch in the dark, select "WHAT IS" and scan
the room by moving the cursor around.
(4) There are TWO ways to escape the dungeon. If two kids are trapped
there, place one in front of the door and have the other push the loose
brick just below the LEFT window to momentarily open the dungeon door.
Quickly switch to the other kid, who will have just enough time to run out.
The other way is to use the rusty key.
FRONT OF THE HOUSE
All three kids should be here. Pick up the door mat and get the key. Unlock
the front door and send all three inside. Send Bernard to the Library.
Open the loose panel directly below Chuck the Plant and get the cassette
tape. Switch to Dave and send him to the Kitchen.
Edna catches Dave, which clears this route for the others. Dave can stay in
the Dungeon for now and should use the trick described in Note (4) to let
the others out when caught. Switch and send Syd into the Storage Room.
Have Syd pick up the fruit drink and glass jar. Switch to Bernard and send
him to the Kitchen.
Get Bernard to get the flashlight, then open the refrigerator and get the
Pepsi can. Switch to Syd and send him to the Kitchen to give the glass jar
to Bernard. Sent them both to the Painting Room.
Syd should pick up the wax fruit and Bernard should get the paint remover.
THE TENTACLE IN THE ATTIC
Send Syd up the next set of stairs to the Top of the Stairs, just outside
the Darkroom, where he meets the Green Tentacle. Give the wax fruit, then
the fruit drink to the Tentacle and he'll let you pass.
THE RADIO ROOM
Switch to Bernard and send him here to get the dime. Then go left and climb
the ladder to the Green Tentacle. Get the record on the shelf and find the
yellow key behind the Tentacle and get it. Then send Bernard to the Piano
WAS IT THE PIANO ROOM OR WAS IT MEMOREX?
Put the cassette tape in the cassette recorder. Put the record on the
victrola. Turn on the cassette recorder and the victrola. Wait until the
glass breaks, then turn them both off. Have Bernard get the tape and go
into the Sitting Room.
THE SITTING ROOM
Bernard should open the cabinet and put the tape in the cassette player.
Turn on the player and the chandelier will shatter. Turn off the player and
get the rusty key that fell from the chandelier. (This unlocks the right
door in the Dungeon). Open the old radio on top of the cassette player and
get the radio tube.
WEIGHTLIFTING AND THE HIDDEN GRATE
Send Syd, who may be in the Dungeon by now, to the Weightlifting Room and
have him use the Hunk-O-Matic Machine. Then send him outside the front door
and to the left of the stairs. Pick up the bushes to reveal the grate. Open
the grate, enter it and walk right to the water valve.
OFF TO THE POOL
Send Bernard to Edna's Room and she'll put him in the Dungeon. Unlock the
door with the rusty key. Have him get the silver key next to the fuse box
in the basement, then send him to the Storage Room. Get him to unlock the
Storage Room with the silver key and go to the pool ladder. Fill the glass
jar with water from the pool.
UNDER THE HOUSE
Switch to Syd and have him turn on the water valve. This drains the pool
and exposes the nuclear reactor's cooling rods, so you have to move fast (a
good place to SAVE your game!!).
IN THE POOL
When the "cut scene" is over, send Bernard down the ladder to get the
glowing key and the radio. As soon as he's safely back on the cement, have
Syd turn off the water valve to refill the pool.
Send Syd and Bernard here and have Syd open the garage door. Bernard should
use the yellow key to open the trunk, then get the tools.

door. Open the door and enter the Broken Wires Room. Turn on the light,
open the radio, use batteries in flashlight, turn on flashlight, walk to

the loose brick to free Syd, then position Syd in front of the fuse box.
Open fuse box and turn off the circuit breakers.
BROKEN WIRES ROOM
When the "cut scene" ends, Bernard should fix the wires with the tools. Now
switch to Syd and turn on the circuit breakers. (The video machines are now
EDNA AND THE WALL SAFE ROOM
Send Syd and Bernard to the hall outside Edna's Room and have Bernard open
the door and enter. While Edna takes him to the Dungeon, send Syd into her
room and go right to the ladder. Climb the ladder to the Safe Room. Turn on
light and open painting to reveal a wall safe.
THE MAN-EATING PLANT
Have Bernard use the rusty key so he and Dave can escape the Dungeon. Send

turn the telescope to the right.
WEIRD ED'S ROOM
Send Dave and Bernard to the doorway outside Ed's Room and have Bernard
give the rusty key and glowing key to Dave. Dave should open the door and
enter Ed's. When Ed takes Dave to the Dungeon, send Bernie into Ed's Room
where he must walk to the piggy bank, open the piggy bank, take another
dime, then go to the Telescope Room.
Bernard should use the dime in the slot, press the right button to turn the
telescope to the right, then use the telescope to read the combination of
the wall safe.
THE SAFE ROOM AND THE SECRET LAB
Switch to Syd and open the wall safe with the combination that you now
know! Get the envelope, open it and get the quarter. Now send Syd back down
the ladder, where Edna will catch him and lock him in the Dungeon with
Dave. Switch to Dave, who should walk to the outer door and unlock the top
and bottom padlocks with the glowing key. Open the outer door to the Secret
Lab. Have Dave unlock the right Dungeon door with the rusty key.
Send Syd here and play the Meteor Mess game with the quarter. Write down
the high score.

door and enter. When Ed takes him to the Dungeon, send in Bernard to get

INTO THE SECRET LAB
Switch to Dave, who is here, and have him open the inner door to the Secret
Lab with the high score from the Meteor Mess game for the combination.
CALLING THE METEOR POLICE
Switch to Bernard in the Radio Room and have him use the radio tube in the
tube radio. Read the poster, turn on radio, use radio to call Meteor Police
with the number from the poster. Now send Bernard to Edna's Room so he'll
get put in the Dungeon. Then wait for the Meteor Police to arrive and take
out the Purple Meteor.
THE ZOM-B-MATIC ROOM AND THE METEOR ROOM

go to the Secret Lab. Give the badge to the Purple Tentacle. After it runs
away, enter the Zom-B-Matic Room. Walk right and use the purple card key in
the key slot to enter the Meteor Room. Turn off switch!!
