Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

Welcome to yet another game with an amnesiac PC. This time, you're trapped in a wax museum that contains several wax figures of famous murderers. Alas, it isn't going to be easy to escape, and when the waxworks start talking to you, well, perhaps all is not as it seems.

I played the original version from the Spring Comp, and I suggest keeping the walkthrough handy. The game is very linear, fussy about how to phrase some commands, and was buggy in several places. Perhaps later versions are less buggy. I hope so, anyway. In particular, don't pick up Marie's head until she suggests it.

If you're stuck, try one of the following (use rot13 to decode):

- YBBX HAQRE bowrpg

- TRG bowrpg (abg GNXR bowrpg)
