Note: During the game you make little use of the keyboard, except to type
in the addresses to let the Cab Driver know where you want to go. You must
then use the available commands displayed on the screen. The exact use of
these commands is not described in this solution as their actions will be
obvious, and full details are provided in the documentation accompanying
Examine each room carefully during the game, as well as the objects
scattered around them.
You begin your adventure in the Bathroom. It seems that you have been
drugged. You don't remember who you are. Take the overcoat and examine the
contents of the pockets. You will find some small change, a lighter with
the initials J.S., some cigarettes, a handkerchief with the same initials,
some sunglasses and a wallet with a key, plastic card and a 20 dollar
Take the .38 revolver armed with six bullets, and open the door.
Look at the mirror.....where have you seen that face before?!! Leave the
room.......you're in the Hallway.
Directly to your LEFT is the Ladies' Bathroom. Enter this room (while
preparing a good explanation should you ever get caught in there!). In the
bathroom and to your LEFT, you notice an expensive pearl earring; take it
if you feel so inclined, but it is not essential to your quest.
Leave the room and in the Hallway, head for the Bar in front of you and
climb the stairs to the second floor.
If you examine the pictures on the wall, you'll see yourself in some of
them! Enter the office.
Open the drawer. Inside, you'll find a bill with an address - 934 West
Take the bill if you wish and open the door to your Left with the key from
In the Office, you'll find a corpse; Search the body and take the keys to
the Mercedes you saw before, parked in the street.
Open the desk and take the pen and key marked "Front".
Leave the room by going out through the window behind the corpse and to the
fire escape. Head for the third floor.
Enter that strange room through the window......Hmmmmmmmmmm.......not the
most reassuring place in the world!
Carefully examine the trash can. You'll find a syringe. Take it.
On the window ledge, you'll find three capsules; Examine those also. It
seems it was here that they tied you up and drugged you.
Take the elevator to visit the rest of the building.
Inside the elevator, press the third button from the top, and you end up in
Insert coins into the machine until you win a jackpot. You will indeed
require a lot of change for the cabs.
Take the elevator again and press the basement button. You now end up in
Before descending into the sewers, SAVE YOUR GAME because you don't stand a
chance of defending yourself against the alligator that roams down there
and which appears from time to time!
Head for the bottom of the sewer and examine the whirlpool that seems to
remind you of something. Now, head for the exit but before leaving, SAVE
YOUR GAME again because if you go out in the backyard alley, you risk
meeting the big bad guy!!!
Get to the Mercedes down the street and unlock the door with the key that
you found on the cadaver earlier. Enter the car and open the glove
You will find a photo there (I hope it's not a picture of your wife!!), a
car registration form in the name of Joey Siegel (do the initials J.S. ring
a bell?!) and the address 1212 West End St.
If you feel so inclined, try starting the car (Ah! the old car bomb trick!
I hope you had saved your game!!).
Get out of the car and go to your RIGHT. You should meet the prostitute
whom you promptly punch! Open her purse and go through its contents. You
find another 20 dollar bill and a revolver which could become useful if you
have the intention of shooting non-stop throughout the game. As for the 20
dollar bill, take it if you can find a way to make change for it, otherwise
And now, go to the LEFT to the newspaper stand, examine the headlnes and
the date. This must be 1941!! Buy the paper and the merchant supplies a few
important details. Go to the LEFT where you might meet the mugger. If you
do, strike him, but take note of this: You can meet and strike the mugger
only 4 TIMES during the whole adventure, so try to avoid him as often as
possible by SAVING YOUR GAME regularly.
You now face the weapons dealer shop. You may also meet a beggar who offers
you some information for 20 dollars. As you won't need the money for the
rest of the adventure, you may give it to him, but you could also ignore
him. You could also enter the store and purchase the "special of the day"
if you feel like it!!
Always to your LEFT, you're now in front of a taxicab. Go to it and ask the
driver to get you to 1212 West End Street, the address you found in the
Mercedes. The ride costs you 75.......pay and get out of the cab.
Enter the building. In front of you is a private entrance. Take the plastic
card from your wallet to use the elevator. At the top floor, examine the
penthouse and on the fireplace is a photo and another address (520 S.
Kedzie). Leave the building, enter the waiting taxi and go to that
You will now be in front of a house, the door to which you are unable to
open. Shoot the lock off with your pistol and enter the house.
On the table you find a paper on which is written the number combination:
33-24-36 (a pretty good number for a safe, eh?!). You also find another
expensive pearl earring. Now, all that's left for you to do is to find the
woman who might fit between them!
Open the desk drawer, take the diary and the key.
It is now time to head for 934 West Sherman. Enter the building and head up
the stairs to the office of Dr.Brody. Open the door with the key found at
520 S. Kedzie. In the office, shoot a bullet at the filing cabinet lock and
you'll find various files in it.
First, read the Siegel file to discover the Diethanol Thimene antidote
called Bisodumitis. Read the other files too, to gain more interesting
Examine the contents of the medicine cabinet and take the Bisodumitis
(click on the bottle) and place the product into the syringe.
Inject yourself with the contents of the syringe. The drug goes to work
quickly and you begin to remember.
Take the Sodium Pentathol capsule from the cabinet; it will come in handy
in a few moments. Get out of the office and go to the second floor in front
of Dr. Ace Harding's office door.
Unlock the door with the same key as for the other Doctor's office. Fire a
bullet at the shadow behind the door and enter the office.
Open the file cabinet and read the contents of the files. Open the desk
drawers and your memory comes back gradually (it will come back with more
regularity from now on). You can always take bullets for the .38 if you
like. And now, you must search for a new destination.
Examine the map found in the Mercedes. The following address is indicated:
1060 South Peoria Street, which is actually Joe's Bar, the place you
initially started from!
Time for another little visit. Unfortunately, the taxi doesn't go that far
and you must walk part of the way. You risk encountering the mugger, so be
careful. Walk to the bar on the RIGHT hand side.
(Enter the bar through the sewer if you like, but it's much easier to use
the front door since you found the key to it earlier).
Once you get into the building, go to the second floor office and open up
the safe since you now have the combination. Inside the safe are a small
box and a file folder. Take the key from the box and read the file. Leave
the office and head down he street towards the Mercedes.
Open the trunk with the key found in the safe. You find there a lovely
(Hum!!) looking woman, tied up and gagged. Remove the bind with a mouse
click. Inject her with a dose of Sodium Pentathol and she blurts out the
address: 626 Auburn Road. Take a cab and go there.
In front of the house, open the mailbox and take the ransom note found
there. Head for the house and knock on the door with the knocker. A butler
answers but refuses to let you in! Punch him down too!! He falls
Climb to the first floor and in the first bedroom you discover a woman
sleeping. Open the drawer and grab the notepad. Rub the pencil on the
notepad and you can now read the message writen on it. How about that for
Go to the other room and there, a man is stacking Z's!! Take the attache
case, open the drawer and take the letter left there. You can eat the
chocolates if you wish and the same thing goes for the bologna sausage down
in the kitchen too!! Leave the building and head for 1060 South Peoria.
You now have all the elements you need to go to the Police Station. But
first you must get rid of the gun.
(Notice that from now on, the mugger may appear at any moment, so SAVE YOUR
GAME as often as possible).
A good place to rid yourself of the weapon is in the whirlpool inside the
sewer. Go through the backyard alley to avoid meeting the alligator. Throw
the gun down there.
Now head for the Police Station and with the evidence you have - the
notepad, diary and letter - you have the solution to the enigma.
Right on! You've solved this adventure and as a bonus you now get to print
your reward!! See you in Deja Vu II!!!!!!!!!!
