Q: What do I do with pink rabbit?
A: You need to snare the hare -- you'll need his battery later. You'll
find a rope one screen east of the starting screen. Pick it up and
walk between the two large red columns in the upper right side of
the screen. Choose the rope from the inventory window, and click the
ROPE icon on the ground to use it. When the bunny walks into the noose,
click the HAND on the rope to catch him.
Q: What am I supposed to do with the rope?
A: Use the rope to catch the rabbit. Pick it up and walk between
the two large red columns in the upper right side of the screen. Choose

ground to use it. When the bunny walks into the noose, click the HAND
on the rope to catch him.
Q: What do I do with the skimmer?
A: Search the skimmer by clicking the HAND icon on it. Open the glove

Q: What should I do with the tank and the unstable ordnance?
A: You can't do anything with the tank itself, but you can take the
"unstable ordnance" from inside. I don't suggest it, though, it is
Q: How do I avoid the cyborg and the Security Droid?
A: The cyborg is really fairly harmless, and blind as a bat. Just
stay out of his way, and he'll leave you alone. If he gets near you,
he'll shriek to alert the Security Droid. There's no escape from the
Q: What about this Dome?
A: The dome is Sequel Police headquarters, among other things. You
can't get to the dome on foot. Later a ship will land, and you can
catch a ride up there.
Q: Where else can I go?
A: You can't get into any of the buildings on the street. If you've
done everything you can on the street, it's time to go underground.
On the northeast corner of the intersection is a sewer grate. Click
the HAND icon on the grate to open it.

Q: What do I need from the Sanitation office?
A: Click the HAND icon on the desk blotter for an important message.

Q: How do I get out of the Sanitation office?
A: On the left side of the room is a door with a wheel on it. Click
the HAND icon on the wheel to open the door, then click the WALK icon
on the doorway to walk out.
Q: What should I do in the sewer?
A: If you took the jar from the Sanitation office, use it to scoop
up some of the green slime. Choose the jar from the inventory window,
and walk around the sewer until the slime oozes out of one of the
grates. Quickly click the JAR icon on the slime, then get away fast!
Q: How do I get out of the sewer?
A: There's a ladder halfway down the west side of the sewer. Click
the hand on it to climb up. When you're looking out at the street
from under the manhole cover, wait for the spaceship to land and the
Sequel Police to disperse before clicking the WALK icon on the street
to exit your hiding place.
Q: What about this spaceship?
A: The spaceship is the Sequel Police shuttle to and from the dome.
If you're quick, you can sneak aboard and get a ride up there. Wait
in the manhole until the Sequel Police disperse, then walk to the
ship. Click the HAND icon on the open area just below the leg of the
ship to get inside the landing gear compartment.
Q: How can I open the door in the landing bay?
A: You can open the lock by pouring the green slime on it, but you
won't be able to get any further until later in the game and you will
probably be shot for your efforts at this time.
Q: How do I avoid getting shot by the Sequel Police?
A: You need to steal a timepod from this area, but you're going to
have to be sneaky about it. Wait for the second pod to land, and for
the pilot to get out and walk up-screen. Quickly click the HAND icon
on the pod to get in.
Q: I'm in the timepod, but I don't know what to do!
A: The first thing you'll need is the User Identity Verification
Pirate Protection Program code. The U.I.V.P.P.P. is located in Space
Piston Magazine, in the Timebuster 2000SUX Road Test article by Y.
Hugh Iotta. Next, make a note of the symbols on the little screen
above the keypad -- those are the Xenon coordinates, and you'll have
to come back here later. Now punch in six digits and press ENTER.
Punch in six more and you're on your way.

Q: How do I avoid the Sequel Police?
A: The best way to avoid the Sequel Police is to exit your pod and
walk immediately to the far West side of the butte. After a large,
formidable shadow passes over the ground, walk back to the pod and
take the stairway down. There's a pterodactyl just waiting to give
you a lift.
Q: What should I do in the nest?
A: You need to search the Sequel Policeman's body. Click the HAND
icon on the body.
Q: How can I escape the nest?
A: To escape, click the WALK icon on the hole in the bottom right
side of the nest.
Q: Help! I've been captured by the Latex Babes!
A: These are the famed Latex Babes of Estros. You leave one of them
at the altar in a future game, and they never forget a grudge. I'm
afraid there's no way out of this one, you'll have to go with them.
Click the WALK icon on the hatch to get in the sub.
Q: How can I get rid of the Sea Slug?
A: When the slug's slimy tentacles are wrapped around your legs,

Q: I just arrived at the mall. What do I do?
A: First pick up the AutoBucks card the Latex Babes dropped. Next,
you'll need some new clothes. From the top of the escalator, go West
on the walkway. Stop at the Big and Tall Alien store and talk to the
clerk. He's got just what you need.
Q: I need some more money.
A: If you're dressed properly, go to Monolith Burger and talk to
the manager. He'll give you a job. Save your game at this point, and
earn as much money as you can. If you get fired, don't restore, just
go back in and get hired again. You need to earn at least $26.00.
Q: How can I use the AutoBucks card?
A: You'll need a clever disguise. Visit the Women's Clothing Store,
and talk to the clerk -- if you have enough money, it can help you.
Note: The clerk won't help you if you haven't already tried to use
the ATM! When you're all dressed up, go back to the AutoBucks machine
and Clean House.
Q: What should I do at the woman's clothing store?
A: If you have enough money, you can buy a clever disguise here to
fool the AutoBucks machine. Talk to the clerk, and it'll give you
everything you need. Note: The clerk won't help you if you haven't
already tried to use the ATM!
Q: What should I buy at the software store?
A: Look in the bargain bin. There are lots of fun things to see here,
but the only thing you need is the Space Quest IV hint book.
Q: What hints do I need from the hint book?
A: There are two hints you'll need to complete the game. One is under
the question about the "stupid timepod", the other is under the question
about the Super Computer.
Q: What do I do in the arcade?
A: Until you're finished at the mall, I don't advise wandering around
the arcade. You can play Ms. Astro Chicken, it's the first game on
the left side of the room. Be sure to approach it from the left, and
click the HAND icon on it. When you've done everything you can here,
come back and have a look around. Walk to the right, rear of the arcade,
and wait for the Sequel Police. Note: the sequel police won't show
up if you are wearing a dress! When they come, get out as fast as
Q: What should I buy at Radio Shock?
A: The item you need to buy from Radio Shock is the PocketPal terminal
adaptor plug. There are several different plugs available, so before
you buy one, you should know which one you'll need. To find out, you
have to get inside the dome on Xenon and look carefully at the Super
Q: What can I do at Monolith Burger?
A: The manager at Monolith Burger would just love to give you a job.
To earn a few extra Buckazoids, take him up on his offer. You'll need
to earn at least $26.00. If you get fired, don't restore, just go
back in and get hired again. Make sure to grab the cigar he tosses
after you. (You can just go to the end of the moving walkway to pick
it up without diving for it).
Q: What do I need to do before leaving the Galaxy Galleria Mall?
A: Before you leave the Galaxy Galleria mall, you should buy a new
Generic Space Hero suit from the Big & Tall Alien's clothing store,
get a job at Monolith Burger and earn $26.00, buy the Space Quest
IV hint book from the bargain bin at the software store, buy a clever
disguise from the women's clothing store, and use the AutoBucks card
to clean out Zondra's account.
Q: I've done everything at the mall, but I can't get any further!
A: If you've done all you can at the mall, it's time to visit the
arcade. Walk to the right, rear of the arcade, and wait for the Sequel
Police to arrive. When they come, get out as fast as you can by clicking
the WALK icon on the bottom right side of the screen. If the sequel
police don't show up, it may be because you are still in a dress!
Q: How do I escape the Sequel Police?
A: Go to Skate-O-Rama and "swim" in the zero-gravity area, being
careful to avoid laser blasts from Sequel Police weapons. The best
way to ditch them is to start at the East entrance of Skate-O-Rama,
swim up, across the top, wait until you see both policemen coming
to get you, then go down to the exit on the West side. Head immediately
to the arcade to swipe a time pod.
Q: I've ditched the Sequel Police, what do I do next?
A: The next thing you need to do is swipe the timepod the Sequel
Police came in. When you exit Skate-O-Rama, head for the arcade. Click
the HAND icon on the timepod to enter it. Your next stop is Ulence
Flats; use the code found in the Space Quest IV hint book to get you
there. It's under the question about the Stupid Timepod. Unfortunately
that is not the entire code. The remaining 3 symbols are found on
a bubble gum wrapper that you picked up earlier in the game.
- - Ulence Flats - -
Q: I've just arrived at Ulence Flats. What do I do?
A: Gee, isn't this place familiar? Well, Droids-B-Us is closed, and
so is Tiny's. The only place you need to go is the bar. Be careful
though, the place has really gone downhill since you were here last.
Q: How do I deal with the Monochrome Boys?
A: There's nothing you can do about the Monochrome Boys, except to
get back at them for what they did to you, and get them out of the
way for a few minutes. When they throw you outside, click the HAND
icon on their motorcycles. If you've already done this, go about your
business quickly and get off this planet. You're in big trouble if
they catch you now.
Q: I've dealt with the Monochrome Boys. What do I do next?
A: Now that the Monochrome Boys are out of the way for a while, go
back into the bar and get the book of matches off the counter. That's
all you need from here.
Q: How can I leave Ulence Flats?
A: Get back in your timepod and enter the coordinates for Xenon.
They were on the screen when you first stole the pod -- I hope you
wrote them down!

A: Pour the jar of slime on the lock to dissolve it, then click the
HAND icon on the door to open it.

matches, and an old cigar butt. choose the matches from your inventory
window. Click the MATCHES icon on the cigar butt. Now select the cigar
butt from the window. Click on OK. Click the EYE icon on the keypad
to get a close up view. Now look at the angles of each set of laser

set, in order to place each in a straight up and down position. With
this accomplished, you can walk through the tunnel unmolested.
Q: What are the correct rotation angles for the lasers?
A: With the beams in the initial position (before you made any attempts
to adjust them), and the flashing bar in the top window, press 156
on the keypad, and press ENTER. The second set of beams can be adjusted
from the initial position by entering 024 into the keypad. To adjust
the last set of beams from the initial position, enter 108 into the
Q: What do I do once I have made it through the tunnel?
A: Now you're inside the Super Computer. If this is your first visit
to this location, you need to get in and get out as fast as you can.
You should be on a walkway. At intervals along this walkway are little
boxes. These are terminals for the Super Computer. Click the EYE icon
on the first terminal you see, and take a good look at the close-up
view. You'll need to buy the PocketPal adaptor plug from Radio Shock
that looks like the plug you see here. If you've already been here
once, and have the correct plug, proceed to the hint section titled
"Inside the Super Computer".
Q: How do I avoid the droid?
A: If this is your first visit to this location, you can only avoid
the Security Droids by getting in and out of this area as fast as
you can. If you've already looked at the terminal, exit the area the
way you came in. If you haven't, return to the previous menu and press
4 for a hint.
Q: Where do I go from Xenon?
A: If you've been inside the Super Computer and taken note of the
shape of the terminal plug, you need to return to the Galaxy Galleria
Mall, and buy the correct adaptor from Radio Shock. The correct coordinates
were on the timepod screen before you left the arcade.

Q: What is my objective here?
A: Once inside the Super Computer, you need to use your PocketPal
to access the Super Computer. This way, you can monitor the movements
of the Security Droids and avoid them as you explore. Your goals are

that will erase Vohaul from the Super Computer, and to rescue your
son, Roger Jr.
Q: How do I use the Pocket Pal?
A: Choose the PocketPal terminal from the inventory window, then
click the POCKETPAL icon on one of the terminals along the walkway.
You should now see an overhead view of the area. The flashing grey
rectangle represents you, the flashing blue or green octagon represents
a Security Droid. Click on the POWER button to exit this view, and
continue along the walkway, avoiding the path of the droid.
Q: My Pocket Pal won't work!
A: You may have one of two problems. First, you need the battery
from the bunny. From the inventory window, click the EYE icon on the
bunny, then click the HAND icon on the battery. Now select the battery,
and click the BATTERY icon on the PocketPal. If you've done this,
and the PocketPal still won't work, you either need to get an adaptor
plug from Radio Shock, or to exchange the plug you have for the correct

A: The correct code can be found in the Space Quest IV hint book,
under the question "I'm in a room outside the Programming Chamber.

to you; the DROID icon, and the BRAIN icon. First, point the icon

A: From the Programming Chamber, walk three screens East, one screen
North, then one screen West to the stairway. Take either stairway
down, and proceed West to the glass elevator. Arriving at level 3,
walk one screen North, one screen East, then North into Vohaul's chamber.

sequence. If you have done this, walk toward the edge of the platform,
and a bridge will extend to Roger Jr.'s platform. Walk across the
bridge. Use the mouse or Arrow keys to fight Roger Jr, and force him
back into the beam. When he's caught in the beam again, climb down
