The chokepoint is the run or die fighting scene. Something to do with a triangular key looks to be the solution. I'm guessing I need to rouse the captain into action to get the key but I can't figure out how?
C-Star Sun Dec 16 11:34:14 2012
I had the exact same problem as you. The door with the triangle lock is a 'bittersweet' ending, and not the true one. If you rouse the captain, you won't take this route at all. I'll give you a hint.
In the very begining, do not follow the small space ship. Dock straight into Djeleven. Then chase the guy that shoots you.
If you need more hints, ask.
Ibrahim Tue Dec 18 11:58:18 2012
@C-star Thank you for that, I figured that the guy you needed to chase at the beginning was key because he
introduces you to one of the figures in the deep sleep chamber who in turn gives you the name of the captain I think, however when I reach the captain I cant rouse him and I've tried multiple times.
C-Star Tue Dec 18 17:36:20 2012
If you chased the man in the beginning then met the other man in the deep sleep chamber, you should be asked the captain's name when you eventually meet him. The guy in Deep Sleep mentions it briefly in conversation.
Ibrahim Wed Dec 19 03:13:36 2012
@c-star Thanks again, I managed to complete the game, I just had to pay attention a little more closely to the conversation with the man in the deep sleep chamber. The irony of what happens to you after you defeat the alien leader though beggers belief and left a sour taste in my mouth. I still prefer Soul Trapper, a much more satisfying work with multiple pathways to the happy ending, Devil's flight depends too much on being successful with your observation and cybernetics.
C-Star Wed Dec 19 08:04:46 2012
Yeah i know, that part was really stupid. And as for the fear score, I was scared to death several times, but all those times I was taking the wrong path. On the true path, I didn't come close to 10 fear.
Gaetano Wed Dec 19 18:26:18 2012
Hi Ibrahim, are you referring to the end, when you can either
fight the leader or board the craft? If so, yes, it's rather rough to be trapped on board the ship while everyone escapes. My justification , though, is that the captain explained on section 238 that there would barely be enough time to escape, since the countdown sequence had just been activated. And once you meet the leader, the captain cannot remind you of this without giving it away. Perhaps I should have made the captain try a little harder to convince you to not fight the alien.
As far as choosing your skills, you're correct that
two of them are more crucial. But the game is set up so that players may assign more points to these skills, once they figure this out, thus giving themselves a better chance of succeeding the skill tests.
Thank you for your comments, as always- feedback is always appreciated.
Ibrahim Thu Dec 20 09:21:26 2012
@Gaetano Your welcome, it was a good game if rather rough going, but to me it doesn't have the appeal of Soul Tracker which I've played through a number of times. If you asked me to put my finger on what makes ST tick for me, I couldn't though congratulations on such a fabulus game.

To be fair, without at least one astonishingly annoying and unfair snatching-defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory instadeath of furious doom, FF just isn't FF.
If you don't like it, there's always choose your own adventure. ;-)

Section 161 of Devil's Flight seems to have a broken Fear point, which isn't added to the player's stats.

Greetings! I just found this site and took a liking to the first game I tried "Devil's Flight". I was wondering if it is even possible to win this game or if there are no good endings? I only get 4 fear points before I die of fright (7 if you count neurostuff) but it runs out too fast for you to want to fully explore everything. Aside from that and the med kits I haven't really found any use for any of the items either. Best I can do is kill the enemy leader and go down in a blaze of glory. No walkthrough or information on this game either. Any one ever beat this game?
pi4t Thu Mar 21 11:27:29 2013
Yes, it is beatable. Could you tell me (using spoiler tags, so people don't have to see it) where you're trying to beat him? Most likely, you haven't got the assistance of certain people.
I'll give you a few hints in different spoilers. I'd suggest looking at only one at a time, and only looking at the next one if you get stuck.
To get the best ending,
you need to get the captain to trust you by finding out his name. If you've already done that and you're now following him, incidentally, just try a few different options right at the end.
To find this out, you need to
talk to two other crew members on the ship.
people in question can be found in the main docking area, and the cryogenic storage (or whatever it's called), but you'll need to get them to trust you.
Personally, I always died of lack of options or stamina long before my fear got too high. Avoid things which increase your fear, such as investigating someone who's probably dead, if you can help it, and you should be fine.

I Kept Dying From Fear?

Yet another game from Gaetano Abbondanza that I just can't stop playing. Wish I'd found out about this game a long time ago. I keep frightening myself to death, or receive what I like to call the "embrace of acid death," but after reading some comments, I'll try some other options. Finally, I'd like to extend my thanks once again to Andy for creating this great site with all these cross-platform games. Being able to play these games on my Mac and iPhone with VoiceOver using the Alex voice really adds to the experience for me, as it's almost like it introduces something close to emotion a human narrator would, if he or she were reading these games as stories. Anyway before I ramble, I'll end here.

How can you can get the battery AND captains name?
Because you need them both for good end
Gaetano Fri Sep 2 15:17:31 2016
If you scroll through the previous comments, you can get hints regarding the captain's name. As far as the battery,
There is a section as a I recall where the ship "scans" you. You have to shoot the system down, and then pass an observation check.

I got scared to death by some aliens

Great story. While having to find the correct path was annoying, as mentioned by others, the elaborate understory was genius. The fear level was slightly low for exploring and killed me several times, but proved to be fine for the right path. The battles were tough, but searching and mapping were pleasant. Good job, if tough and somewhat unlikeable for some people. Grade: 98

Section 167 contains incorrect spellings of "Lambda". Also, you reach it by administering a dose of Neuroxin to a woman, but no deduction of Neuroxin doses is made on your Possessions list.
Thanks, this is now dealt with. I have assumed that "Lamda" is the correct version as there are more instances of this spelling throughout.
