-Draw a map (or a series of maps). Remember that the EXISTS ON command lists all the paths from each location. To make life easy for you, the objects that matter in a location are normally listed in a sentence like, "You can see Ace
and a key".
-Examine all the objects that you see. Most are useful. Use the "high level" commands, such as GOT TO CHAPEL, RUN TO SHED,FOLLOW DOG, WAIT 5, which do the work of many instructions. Pressing a key "breaks" out of such commands.
-Try everything you can think of even weird or dangerous actions sometimes provide clues, and might be fun. You can use UNDO (or Load if you have previously used SAVE) to recover if the results are "fatal".
-You can word commands in many different ways. For example, if there were an axe and a ball on the ground, you could take the axe by:
-GET THE AXE
-GET ALL BUT THE BALL
-LOOK AT THE AXE AND TAKE IT
If the game doesn't understand your command, try rephrasing it and using synonyms. If the game still doesn't understand, you are probably trying something that is not important.#
