zak mckracken: between time and space english walkthrough

ZAK MCKRACKEN: BETWEEN
TIME AND SPACE
ENGLISH WALKTHROUGH
NOTE: THIS WALKTHROUGH IS A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO GETTING THROUGH THE GAME. IT SHOWS HOW TO GET THROUGH THE GAME IN
THE MOST EFFICIENT METHOD POSSIBLE. IT DOES NOT HIDE SPOILERS, NOR GIVES NUDGES AND HINTS. IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPRISED,
MOVE AHEAD SLOWLY AND USE ONLY IF YOU ARE COMPLETELY STUCK!
GENERAL TIPS:
1. If you can‘t find what you need, move everything that isn‘t nailed down.
PUSH items that can be pushed. OPEN things...and CLOSE them, too.
This is especially important on HARD.
2. Some puzzles can be solved more than one way. If you played through on EASY and suddenly you find
yourself missing an item or two on HARD, it‘s either hidden close by, or you can use an alternate method.
If a puzzle needs to be solved one specific way, there are clues that say so. If you think you used an item
earlier and can‘t get it back, you can use something else in its place.
3. If a solution just isn‘t coming to you, remember the old adventure game credo: Look at what you have,
where you got it, and what makes each object unique. Or, get away from the computer for a moment
and have a good think. The clues are all there: with a little logic and forethought, they can be solved.
4. Yes, there are a few moments where Zak can die. But only when it would be really funny. And should
you do, the game loads you back to the exact moment before you died. Never be afraid to experiment.
5. There are a few bugs in the game - so please save regularly.
It‘s also important to use a single slot for every single savegame.
Now have fun with the game! :)
