Walkthoughs are always a difficult task to master. They generally impart too much information and/or are written in action format. Neither is great for the adventurer who's stuck and only needs a hint. I've tried to provide a walkthrough that doesn't detract from the plot of the game - after all that is the key element in an adventure.

If you know of an alternative (and better) walkthrough than the one presented here, please let me know.

Walkthrough written by Catz. The inventory items referred to through the walkthrough are shown as caps from the game complete with their descriptive text.

Whenever someone makes a rude comment about your breath, "use spray". Yep, it's your breath spray. If you run out of breath spray, you may always buy more at the convenience store. You have until midnight to complete your mission, so keep checking your watch to make sure you haven't run out of time. Also, remember to pay the cabbie each time you arrive at a destination, or you'll die. Also, if a little black dog comes to urinate on you, you might want to "kick dog".

When you start out, walk up to the door to Lefty's and "open door". Walk over to the jukebox, if you want, and "play jukebox". Walk over to the empty A rose, is a rose, is a rose. stool at the bar and "sit stool". Since you are in a bar, you might as well "order whiskey". You'll end up carrying it around. "stand" and go into the back of Lefty's, in the northwest corner of the screen. Go over to the table and "get rose", and walk to the drunk, right between his legs. You can try to walk in between his legs twice, by walking into them, walking out, and walking back in for a cute comment. Then, "give drunk whiskey". He'll give you a remote control in return. Go into the door on the east wall of the bathroom by typing "open door", and move over to the toilet and "sit". After you're done, "stand" and take a look at the walls, "look graffiti", until you get Operating on the principle of line-of-sight infrared transmission, the remote control baffles you completely. Although it appears to do nothing, aiming it at your groin while rapidly changing channels does make you feel quite silly. a message about the password being Ken Sent Me. If you dare, (save game first), "flush toilet". Then, move over to the sink, and "look sink". Wow, When you gaze deep into the diamond, you seem to hear the sound of wedding bells, and maybe diesel trucks. a diamond engagement ring. "get ring". Go back out of the bathroom, and south into the bar. Go over to the door on the east wall and "knock on door". When the man asks you for the password, type in "ken sent me". Hmm....He appears to be blocking the staircase. Try to "use remote" to turn on the TV, and flip through the channels by "change channel" until you get to something that he likes. Once he's fully immersed in the world of porn, climb up the stairs, up to the hooker's room. Move over to table, by the east wall, and "get candy". Move over to the window and "open window". Then, "climb out window". While on the fire escape, walk west, until you fall into the garbage bin. While in there, "get hammer", and then "get out". Move back around to the front of the bar, and "call taxi". Go next to the taxi, and "get Even though you only scored in the 28th percentil in your high school's National Mechanical Aptitude Test, you're fairly certain this is a hammer. in taxi". Once in the taxi, you'll want to select a destination. "store" would be a good bet. On the way, you might want to "look cabbie" once, and then "look cabbie" once again. Ewww. If you're really suicidal, you might want to ask the cabbie to "take me home". Once you're at the store, "pay man". For a bit of realism, try to "tip cabbie", and then finally "exit".

Move up to the phone, and "look phone". Hmm, interesting phone number. "use phone" and type in, for the number, "555-6969". You'll be asked many Your wallet contains some wrinkled business cards, lots of notes, some credit cards (which won't work in this game), and $90.00 in cash. questions.

Once he does, approach him, and he asks if you'd like to buy an apple. "look in barrel", and "ask name", and then "ask last name". After that, you may "buy apple". Now, go north through the casino doors. You need money. You have two choices here. You can either play Blackjack (the table at the SW corner of the room, with the sole woman there) or Slots (Pick any available slot machine in the SE corner of the room) To play slots, go up to a machine and type "play slots". To play blackjack, go up to a stool in front of the woman and type "sit". Instructions are given. Once you've won $250, the max for the house, go north, further into the casino, and stand near the ashtray and "get card". After that, go east one, into Let's see now...

After that, "give ring", "give candy", and "give rose". Once you've done all that, "dance". Once she agrees, "stand", and walk up to the dancing floor.

Go up to the door with the big heart on it, and "knock on door". She'll let you in. Once in there, go to the radio, on the left side of the bed, and "turn on radio". After a while, you'll hear a commercial for liquor. Hmm...Sounds like a good bet for getting Fawn in the mood. Go back to the door, "open door", and get back in the elevator, and "push one".
