Contractual Obligation

Now that that's clear, can I say that I actually felt that CO was a step down in quality from the previous episodes (although The Hypertrout also compared poorly with The Golden Crate, which I think is the best of the series so far). Part of this was because creeping around a palace in the middle of the night leaves few encounters to build comedy on.

As such I welcome any feedback, especially detailed feedback for the subsequent episodes. Episode 6 will probably be about the same quality as CO, but the next two episodes lok like they will be up there again, being in more populus settings.

Ulysses,

have anything to do with the destruction of the very large robot? Also, the golden tile found in the security office; to whom does it belong? We're supposed to find the three tiles belonging to the chamberlain, royal champion, and royal executioner, so I'm unclear as to whom the security office one belongs. The tile that you consider to be a bad mirror, I presume that that's the one we're supposed to get from the royal champion, but there's no way to retrieve it, and how are we supposed to carry it around, if it's as large as the wall? Sorry for asking too many questions, but I want to beat this game! Talk to you later.

I made a typo before. The tile as large as the wall is in the study of the chamberlain, not the champion.

Your choice of what to put in a Spolier Box and what to leave out is confounding.

It's not neccessary for the player to kill the royal executioner. But if they do; when the royal executioner is discovered dead, a new one is appointed. Words to this effect are included in the passage after you have killed the executioner, where you reason that he will soon be replaced.

I enjoyed CO a lot and did not think it was a step-down in quality from the series. I do agree that the Golden Crate was the best so far, but not every book can be the best. One of the things I liked about CO was that it called to mind various classic FFs, and indeed the finale of the Golden Key (palace champion et al...); it thrust our Arthur Dent like Enseign into the well-established trope of "palace of the evil emperor" with amusing consequences. Difficulty-wise it was a lot easier than the Hyper-trout (fortunately) and somewhat easier than the Golden Crate- probably on a par with Planet of the Spiders. Personally that was fine for me. The premise made me laugh out loud and there was plenty of humor.

If pressed to find some minor quibbles, I would say that the one-location, one-setting, one mission style was less stimulating than the Golden Crate, where several disparate places and times had to be fitted together to complete a surreal jig-saw puzzle. But all in all it's great.

hey ulysses,
could you please give me a walkthrough for the golden crate, the hypertrout and contractual obligation?
I'm stuck on all three

Ulysses

No, but if you tell me where you are stuck I am happy to give you some clues. I would also recommend playing through the episodes in order because this allows you to carry the same character through, building up your SKILL, STAMINA and LUCK. It also allows you to access secret areas and bonuses. Below is some general info about each adventure.

I'm happy to say I managed to get all the way from the beginning of WWGB to the end of CO without any spoilers, but the Hypertrout in particular took me weeks. I imagine that if you happen to get lucky you could complete it very quickly, but if you choose the wrong path, you can keep on bashing your head into a brick wall without realising that

.

In a way it may well be harder for a seasoned FF solver than for a newbie- it's structure makes "normal" methods of solving ineffective.

CO on the other hand is not easy but is far less sadistic!
