In the previous game in this series, Father Paddy Murphy, with your help if you bought the game, managed to track down the killer of the Sexton of the church of St. Ivan the Terrible. This was done with great skill and clever deduction, and was a notable credit to the detective powers of the humble priest. So, flushed with success, Father Murphy took it upon himself to treat his weary body to a relaxing holiday in the country. It is at this point that the next tale starts to unfold ....
Father Murphy had always been fond of his aged relative and now that
he had the chance to pay them a visit, albeit a short one, he felt
sure that he would enjoy every tiny minute of his stay.
The hall was an imposing building and the surrounding gardens were a
proud testament to the love and devotion bestowed upon them by the
gardener cum general handyman that looked after such things. Even the
weeds that used to invade the path around the side of the hall were now
conspicuous by their very absence.
However, there had been a certain intangible "feeling" that led Father Murphy to suspect that all was not quite as it should be and that "feeling" was to be brought more sharply into focus by the events that confronted the priest when he arose from his slumbers that morning....
Rising from the warm comfort of the bed, Father Murphy dressed quickly and prepared to make his way down to breakfast. However, to his great surprise the door of the bedroom was locked ... from the outside ... and an unearthly silence hung over the hall. Just what macabre events had taken place during the night and would he last long enough to find them out?
It will be necessary for you and Father Murphy to discover a means to leave the locked room and for that means to be discovered before the arrival of the "sinister figure". Then, and only then, can the real task of uncovering the hidden secrets of the hall begin and the search for truth and justice be entered into seriously.
This game will recognise all the "standard" commands such as EXAMINE, LOOK, QUIT etc. It will also recognise the use of RAM SAVE and RAM LOAD to store and recall a position to and from memory. There is a "cheat" mode built into the game ... to activate it simply type CHEAT... It is up to you to discover what it actually does though!
Just because it is not listed does not mean that it is not there ... so try it and see what happens. You never know, you might be very happily surprised by what you find there!
