As adults we spend our leisure time indulging in such
pursuits as "sport", "reading" and "watching to" -
none of which we ever took part in as toddlers. In
those days we had to content ourselves with being
at the mercy of well-meaning aunties who would fill
our heads with lurid tales of "murder", "violence"
and "cruelty" that went under the guise of fairy
tales or nursery rhymes. Some of them were enough to
give you nightmares for the rest of your childish
This game features a number of these "nursery rhymes",
or at least it does in as much as it stars many of their
During the game you will come across such luminaries
as "Little Miss Muffet" (remember that damn spider!!),
"Tom-Tom The Piper's Son", "Wee Willie Winkie" and
even "Humpty Dumpty" himself.
It will be up to you to use these characters and their
own peculiar "abilities" to solve the puzzles of the
game and allow you to carry out all the necessary actions
your task demands of you.
The Story So Far
News of your success in previous encounters and of your tenacity when it comes to bringing
villains to their knees, has spread far and wide. And now it seems that your "talents" are
once more in demand.
The letter-box rattles and you look up from your bowl of "Nutts and Things" with the look
of a "semi-interested party". Plodding your way to the front hall you peer into the dark
and notice an envelope lying on the doormat. Is it the great "pools win" you have always
dreamt of or is it just another of those demands for your money that seem to drop on to the
mat with such regularity???
You open the letter and the next great adventure begins to take form...
This game will recognise all the standard commands - so don't bother asking what they are as they are the same as the last time you asked - with the exception of some very good and comprehensive LOOK commands. Use the following to assist you in your task ...
LOON - Look On, LOOV - Look Over, LOTH - Look Through, LOBE - Look Behind, LIN - Look In and LUND - Look Under. Eg. LOTH WINDOW or LOBE CABINET or LOOV WALL will all work well.
Feel free to save your game position to memory by using the RAM routines. However, always resort to the standard SAVE and LOAD (to tape or disk) when it comes to making a permanent
record of your progress!!!
