From the word processor of Mike Varela, here is the completeion
cheater needed for ZORK: NEMESIS. This contains logic bits to the
game that I found irritatingly missing in the cheater this server
hasfiled on the game. So, here goes...
Zork: Nemesis Addendum
Since the ZN cheater that¦s available on this server is accurate up to
a point, this addendum fills in the blanks, and will assist the gamer
by having the goal of the game firmly in mind before play is
initiated. I¦ll present the needed fillers in the natural order of
the game¦s storyboard, plus the cheater for the last part, Phase 3, of
YOU have to resurrect and free the four EVIL elements before you can
resurrect and free the genuine good guy and his wife -- who will, in
turn, aide YOU, the Nemesis, in rekilling the four evil elements with
the infinity ring. (Don¦t worry, you¦ll know what ¦infinity ring-
means when you get to the end [Phase 3] of the game).
Mouse Clicking Pointers
Left click the mouse to activate or pick up objects. Right click the
mouse to scroll through your inventory. Then when you get to an icon
(e.g., the normal mouse arrow that you will want back on the screen
when moving through rooms), or inventory object within your inventory
that you want to use, left click the mouse to use it or apply it onto
some object that¦s relevant to the scene in the game.
You must LOCATE the ROOM(S) of these four elements within the Tibetan
monastery by following the map illustrated in your small ZN booklet.
That booklet is the ZN insert pamphlet that came inside the game¦s CD
case. Refer to that map whenever you need to locate the room(s) where
you have to find a particular element¦s lair. It's in each lair that
you need to enter to work the puzzles that will resurrect each
element. The weird symbols on the map, signifying where each lair is
located for each element -- including what planet they belong to, are
located in books found in both the monastery¦s library and lab. (Use
lots of note paper and pencil to record all this data contained in the
books, as ZN is not as beautifully advanced as SHIVERS, wherein you
have some capability of recording what you observe in a searchable
You must travel to four planets and work the puzles on each planet to
free a device from each planet. You then carry each device/talisman
from the planet where you found it back to earth and lay it on the
magic four-element table to free each element. That's why you have to
teleport yourself to each planet.
Yes! The unmentionable part of the game: the endplay! At this point,
make sure you SAVE the game after refusing to drink the poison offered
by the evil four-elements (YOU refuse the drink by merely waiting it
out until the chalice disintegrates!!!). NOW ... GO DIRECTLY to the
monastery¦s pavilion where the water fountains are. DO NOT go on any
tours of the place, examining any rooms, etc., as the evil
four-flushing-elements will get ya if you do! Now, at the two
waterfall fountains in the middle of the pavilion, click on the horns
of each water fountain so you can see that they¦re merely ON/OFF
switches to the water flow. However, ONE OF THE fountains, when
turned off, has a BUTTON hidden behind its waterfall! Click on it, as
this is your way into a secret tomb, wherein lies the good guy¦s dead
wife. Your goal here is to resurrect the dead babe.
In the tomb of the known babe, go directly to her sarcophagus and take
the silver ring off the corpse). You should now have both the gold
and silver wedding rings. Now ... try to LOOK UP from that position.
If you can¦t, you need to CIRCLE AROUND the sarcophagus, and try
LOOKING UP on each side. What you¦re looking for up there, in the
canopy of the sarcophagus, is a sceptre that you¦ll need to pick up
for your inventory so you can smash a glass globe a little bit later
on. If you find that you can't LOOK UP at this stage of the game,
then you will need to activate two of the three statues, then return
to repeat the circling and looking up routine around the sarcophagus
for the sceptre.
The 3-Statue Affair...
Now, take the silver and gold wedding rings and place them within the
infinity mold that¦s beneath the lizard(?) statue. Activate the
statue¦s flame by clicking on its head or its diamond-tipped sceptre,
and it will melt the rings into an infinity symbol. This is the
¦infinity ring- previously alluded to. Remove the mold with hot
infinity ring and place it beneath the elephant statue. Do the same
sort of activation clicking, making the elephant statue hose the hot
metal mold with cool water. Remove the infinity ring from the mold at
this point and place it beneath the glass globe that the last statue
is holding. SMASH THE GLOBE WITH YOUR SCEPTRE. Then after the movie
seque, you¦ll find yourself on a high walkway above the four-elements¦
sarcophagus pavilion within the temple. Click the infinity ring on
the unholy four elements, who are still busy plotting evil below, and
destroy them. Watch next movie seque that finishes game. Relax now,
you¦re the good nemesis that this unhappy couple was looking for!
You¦ve saved their bacon! Hooray!
