@ Ulysses,

If you write another gamebook, could you perhaps somehow fit in seafood sandwiches? I'd also like a bowl of sweetcorn. And, cherry pie with custard if you have any :)

Well T. G. C. is really a challange. Tjhat Death Bot is unbelieveable.How am I supposed to fight a monster like that? I haven't tried smoke bombs yet but this is one tough assignment. I tried not to buy a knife but when I try to sneak through the door (after lessons) I get nailed every time. Ah, what fun!

@Walker Long

You really remind me of me. I was posting the exact same stuff as you when I first started posting! The WWGB series is a challenge. I must have died about 25 times all throughout! Of course, the other guys helped me a lot.

And as for your problems with the Death Bot, you're not supposed to fight it. If you do, it is extremely unlikely that you will win. What you're supposed to do is

The item is, I.M.O., very random, so ask if you need help figuring it out. And, just to warn you, it actually gets harder later on :-( but that's what makes gamebooks so satisfying when you win them!

I thank you for the bookmark info. I do that all the time but it is called favorites. I didn't know it saves the page as it is. I thought it just saved the web site. It works great! Boy, what a time saver. Now I am in "Crate and keep getting to the airport and the kid. I die. I know I am missing something. How about a little hint? I haven't used the data pad or the other data thing or the goop in the jar. It must be there for somthing... I have had a beard and not and got a stat bump. I must be missing something. Am I exeting the building after I run from the bot-dogs?
thanks a bunch.Walker

Hey, I posted all that info!! Anyway, I got stuck on this exact same part too. TGC requires you to take a strict path through the book. if you have the goop in the jar, you made the wrong choices on the ship in the beginning. You're supposed to be escaping by yourself. When you escape the ship, you should have a blaster, a strait jacket, and a microchip. You can get the data square and tablet again before reaching the city. Just find the crashed ship. You NEED the tablet & square to win.

And, because you might need to know later, choose to stow away once you get the crate. You'll need to open it.

Pat or Ulysses,
I got to fight to death-bot died. I go to the crashed ship and tlk to both computers and leave. I don't pick-up the pad etc. I don't know where they can be. I am going in with Big Boband use the whip. Any ideas? I don't know where to stow away. Hint Please!

@Pat
For all of the time penalties I tried to make them realistic.
So to take 2 objects out of your pockets and try them in combination should only take 10 seconds at most.

The adding of numbers from the names of the objects is the only way to make this work in a text gamebook. I'm not sure what you are intending, but it would be nicer if you could just select the two objects without having to use the relatively clumsy method of adding numbers from the names.

@Walker

The problem with your questions are that you are all over the place chronologically and your descriptions of your actions don't let us know if you have done critical tasks or not.

In every section of the game: Golden Stream, Jungle, Shipwreck, Town, Supertrain, Projudia, A13 Spaceport, Flight, A12 Spaceport, A12 Palace; there is something that needs to be done for success.

C-Star mentioned previously everything you need to do on the Golden Stream, namely:

Hi, Well I'll try to get this in order I get to the secret place and go back. I kill the Captain and land. I get the 3 color button control and get the stuff from the safe. I go up one level with the Lumberjacks. I get more training in whip. I get on the train and beat the woman then the guy. Now i am supposed to know about the trick compartment. But, how do I open it and not get the crate behind the fense? This is such a great game. Thanks for your help.

I'm sorry, I have no idea what your problem is. And since my laptop is in repairs and the books don't work too well on this phone, I can't check. So i'll just guess.

Also, I think there may be either an error, or an example of Ulysses Ai's sense of humour, in the training you can recieve. The - advanced - energy whip course gives only a +1 attack strength bonus when using an energy whip, which is less than the cheaper basic defence course (+1 initial-and-current skill at all times, including non battle tests). Also, there's a minor exploit in Planet of the Spiders in that it's quite possible to

Correction: I feel stupid now. Reading back several pages of the guestbook, I see that I had in fact been told the solution, but just scanned that section rather than reading it properly, so hadn't noticed!

@ Flow

The blaster you possess is a disposable blaster and doesn't have enough shots to use in a fire-fight, especially against a death-bot.

To defeat the death-bot, use the following procedure:

You can, of course, also just fight the Death-Bot: the fight is winnable if you have a good Skill (eg from boosting it multiple times, as I described above, in Planet of the Spiders ).

You've made it to the final battle! The thing about that battle is:

Regardless, it's still possible to just fight the battle and win. At least it's not a Death-o-saur.

Usually all weapons are available somewhere early on in the game. It is possible to obtain an energy whip in tGC near the start.

Hello I must say that of all the game books I played this one has got to be the hardest and if your other future ones are even harder then this is going to be a long haul. Congratulations because it's all pretty funny, but what I haven't picked up on is how to time travel. I've been to the ruined ship and I've exhausted all the dialogue options with the vending machine in the hold.

Other than time travel I think everything else should fall into place as I've got to the ending where pomplom dies.
