Apologies to those who reached paragraph 441 (in the shop) only to encounter an error message. I have now fixed this problem.

Great site. I've been very impressed by every adventure so far. I can't wait to explore them all. However, I'm stuck playing Hellfire. I just can't seem to get past the river of acid. I'd appreciate any hints you may have for getting past this difficult obstacle.

You must solve the riddle that the girl sings to you. This will not give you the answer to the acid river directly, but it will help you on your way, even if it doesn't seem so.

Thanks for your help Phil. I had a feeling that singing girl had something to do with it. Now if I can only solve that riddle!

May I report a bug in Hellfire? When you open the box with the Spider-Man, you get two chances to Test your Luck, and if you fail both of them you get no message about what happens (your Adventure Sheet, but nothing else, is displayed on the screen).
Thanks for pointing that out, it's fixed now.
Phil Sat Mar 27 07:36:55 2004
This is the section that is supposed to appear when you fail both Luck rolls:
You have been bitten! Almost instantly, you start to convulse into violent spasms as the creature's deadly poison courses through your veins. You hardly even notice the aforementioned monster biting your face as you die in agony on the floor in the dirt...

Awesome site, you've done some great work, thanks for everything.
The thing is, I've been playing Hellfire for days now and I think there's a bug in the online version.
Once you reach the last "Boss", Trinitour, he asks you for some rusty gauntlet. Now I've checked everywhere in the game, no rusty gauntlets.
The reason why I think there's a bug isn't so much because I can't find them. I've compared both the online version and downloaded a paper version. In the paper version, the gauntlets are obtained by facing the Shadow Hunter. Only, in the online version, there is a major difference as there is no Shadow Hunter, as the T-JUNCTION just south of the lava river is completely different from the paper version. You cannot cast DISPEL DARKNESS, nothing happens when you do, whereas in the paper version, you are confronted with the Shadow Hunter. Is this clear?
If you could somehow fix this bug, I would be really grateful. Then again, maybe you modified the game in so way or the other and the rusty gauntlets are found somewhere else. Could you inform me if this is the case please, so I don't keep spending hours upon hours to find the gauntlets?
Thank you very much.
I'm happy to say that no, it's not a bug, and it is definitely possible, though difficult, to complete Hellfire.
I did indeed alter the game a little around this area for technical reasons. But the location of the Shadow Hunter, and the gauntlets, is in fact unchanged.

Hi, me again!
If anyone has trouble playing through Hellfire, feel free to ask your questions. I was stumped by this gamebook for ages, espicially on the riddle, and couldn't find any help on the internet whatsoever.
Etienne Mon Aug 16 00:57:41 2004
Thanks for your quick reply,
You were right, I was mistaken, it is possible to finish Hellfire. Although it is very very very hard.
Thanks for your quick reply, and again, thank you so much for this awesome program.

Please somebody help me I'M DESPERATE PLEASE PLEASE
Phil Sadler Fri Oct 22 21:43:35 2004
You must kill the old women at the start, then give the unidentified spell to the women in the library
Phil Sadler Fri Oct 22 21:50:27 2004
"Please somebody tell me what item I need to use to kill the Earth elemental Please"
You must first use the flute, which is got by using the Trinitour to throw you over the chasm that the Fiend from the Pit comes from. Then, you must stab it with the dagger that is gained by using the Trinitour to help you climb the tree right at the start (at the reference where you meet the Blood Zombie).
Phil Sadler Sat Oct 23 09:24:31 2004
Someone has said before that they fought the Trinitour and he didn't cause you any damage. Then you suggested that he may have recieved a blessing that countered the damage. Well, the same thing happened to me but I did NOT have the blessing and was taking normal damage from the enemies. I wonder if you could take a quick peek at this? It's at reference 8.
It turns out that you, and everybody else who mentioned this was right after all - there was a bug despite my denials. But I have definitely fixed it now...
