To the likes of Ron Tilson, Timmy Ballins or Harry Forcefield, there are no two
words more likely to instill fear into then and bring on attacks of "sweaty palms",
"trembling hands" and "manic depression" than the words "Tax returns"... especially
when uttered by the local tax inspector. But these same two words can only herald
some moments of immense joy and happiness for those of you who were fortunate enough
to complete The Taxman Cometh, because they signify the arrival of the sequel to this award-winning game and some pleasant hours (even weeks!) of happy adventuring.
The Story So Far
No sooner had the euphoria of completing the first quest passed than it was time to embark upon the next... or so it was for the "hero" of this little tale. This time around the devious debtors are the infamous Snow White and the Seven Short Guys!
Local intelligence has revealed the following information ...
She has not been seen for some time and
rumour is rife that she has been "tampered" with.
When interviewed recently one "old hag" claimed "It
wasn't me Guv!" The law found a poisoned apple in
her basket but without a body nothing could be proved.
The revenue take the line that if the apple was still
in her basket then it is unlikely that the hag poisoned
anyone ... We think there is another reason.
Always under the influence (of what is debatable!). Has appeared under the table
of the "DOG & DUCK" on many, many occasions.
Renowned inventor. His speciality is teleport and transfer devices. A reasonable
enough chap but his inventions often go wrong during the "experimental" phase!
Owns a local nightclub. Also known to hire a rather large security "advisor".
Recently fined for utilising the local "cheap" labour ... at "cut down" prices!!
The dunce of the diamond mine! Recently failed his seven plus (7+) exam (at the
age of 84!). When asked in tests, "What year did the half-trolls invade the land of
Organa?", he replied "Don't know, I wasn't there!". When asked "What is the capital of
Mollinia?", replied "M" (he got half a mark for that!). Nomarks = Not very bright.
Among other, more obvious, nicknames, Banker is known to his mates as "Squeaky",
owing to the fact that he is so "tight" that he squeaks. Prising this dwarf from his
gold will be as difficult a "task" as it would be prising a Troll from his pet rock!
Trainee "trap builder". Currently serving his apprenticeship with Trapper. Has
shown some promise but his puzzles tend to have some very "corny" solutions.
Bespoke trap builder and dungeon fitter. Currently away at a conference (or as
it is better known ... a "booze-up"). Unlikely that he has left his money unguarded.
This game will recognise all the standard commands as well as such one as RAMSAVE and RAMLOAD. Use the latter to store and recall a game "position" to and from memory but always use the standard SAVE and LOAD to commit a more permanent record to tape or disk.
EXITS will display all "exits". FX will switch effects on and off. P or PAID will show the names of the debtors who have coughed up (if any!). FONT swaps the typefaces shown.
The following utilities are also available to allow you to edit the supplied screens of this game:
