"HACKER" FROM ACTIVISION: A *100%* SOLUTION - AT LAST! :)
By Jaromir Krol - "Jerry King". http://jaromirkrol.web.com
First things first - all the "special" actions are called with keys that they
begin with. That is, press U to go UP, D to go down, M to read MESSAGES, I to
use INFRARED at night, C to call the spy in each city. Y - yes, N - no. Use
RETURN to offer/confirm.
At one point in the game, two satellites will appear. If they catch you, they
will give you security clearance tests. They will ask you a question each
time they catch you. You can be caught four times. Then - it will be game
over! The answers to their questions are:
Security test level I: MAGMA, LTD.
Security test level II: AXD-0310479
Security test level III: HYDRAULIC
Security test level IV: AUSTRALIA
At another point, your vehicle and its path will disappear and you won't see
your movement on the map. Be VERY CAREFUL from then on.
Okay - as the LOGON, give AUSTRALIA (this will skip the initial test). Now
choose the time zone. Don't choose yours, just highlight both Americas and
Europe. This will help in the game. And now go! This is the full list of
moves you need to make in each direction to complete the game. For instance,
6E stands for 6 moves to the east, 4N - four to the north, and so on. U means
going up, of course. :)
6E, 4N, U. Switzerland: Give $5000, buy the deed and the chronograph.
4W, 1N, 6E, 2S, 1E, U. Egypt: offer the chronograph, buy scarab and Tut.
1E, 1N, 1W, U. Italy: only offer Tut (don't buy anything).
1E, 2N, 2E, 3S, 1E, U. India: only offer scarab (don't buy).
1W, 3N, 16W, 1S, U. New York, US: offer the deed, buy the diamond (*).
6W, 1N, 14W, 2S, 5E, U. Japan: offer the diamond, buy pearls and the camera.
4W, U. China: offer pearls, buy jade carving.
1E, 3S, 2E, 1N, 4E, 1S, 2E, 1S, 2E, 1S, 8E, 3N, U. Cuba: only offer the camera.
8E, 2N, 2W, 1N, 3E, U. London: offer jade carving, buy Beatles' LP.
3W, 2S, 12W, 1N, 1E, U. San Francisco, US: only offer the Beatles' LP.
1W, 1S, 10E, 2N, 2W, 1S, 3W, U. Washington, US: VICTORY!
* - Reportedly, in some versions of the game, you should buy STOCKS AND
BONDS, not DIAMOND in NY, and you should offer those to the spy in Japan.
Also, sometimes the spy in Cuba wants the carving and the bloke from London
asks for the camera. Oh, yes - there was a bug in my version of the game
(completed under VICE, the C64 emulator): 1 point to north of New York, there
was a "hidden" entrance to Cuba - when you pressed U there, you went up to
