0.3 Game description

Three couriers headed to a top-secret conference in Brussels are missing. Each was carrying 
a crucial component of the NATO non-nuclear defense plans. Now two are dead and the last 
one, William Martin, last seen in Berlin, has vanished.
Berlin, February 6, 1990... You are a CIA agent (Codename: Moondancer) assigned to recover 
the missing parts, which consist of a computer chip, a floppy disk and a CPU.



1 Character Creation

1.1 Experience Points

This value represents the points you accumulate as you move towards accomplishing your 
mission.
Your character starts at 0 by default. By performing certain actions, like fighting, using 
equipment, encountering other characters and solving puzzles you gain experience points. 
As you gain experience points you attain higher levels based on following table:

Grade Level		Experience Points required
------------------------------------------------------
Sleuth                  0
Agent                   25000
Resident Agent          40000
Spy                     60000
Master Spy              75000


1.1 Character traits

By creating a new agent, you are prompted to fill a form consisting of multiple choice 
questions.
Depending on your choices your character traits are initialized. Note that these values are 
dynamic, meaning they may improve (or deteriorate) during your mission.

-Intelligence
Improves very fast by gaining experience and solving puzzles. It's exact function in the 
game is unknown to me.

-Strength
Improves by winning fights, deteriorates by taking damage. Strength determines damage dealt.

-Knowledge
Improves rather slow by uncovering facts and gaining proficiency with new weapons and items.
It's exact function in the game is unknown to me.

-Intuition
Improves by encountering other characters. It's exact function in the game is unknown to me.

-Health
Improves by winning fights. Your life energy. If it drops to 0 or below, you die.

1.2 Personality traits

The character creation system also randomly assigns a set of personality traits (e.g. acting 
ability, allergies, observation, tolerance to pain) to your character. 
Not all personality traits are accessible from the start, they appear as you attain higher 
grade levels. Every personality trait may help or hinder your character in certain 
situations.

1.3 My personal preference

Fill in the form as follows:
Spend most of my live: On a farm.
Cover occupation: Golf Pro
Favourite leisure activity: Team sports
Age Group: 25 to 34

This way you can max out your most important statistics, strength and health, making your 
life easier in firefights.

3. The Guide

3.1 General Hints

*The currency used in the game is the DM (Deutsche Mark).
*Your apartment is the only place where you can drop any item without losing it forever.
*Always stay equipped with superior firearms. The Walther P5 and S&W Model 10 are good to 
start with, switch to the HK G3-SG1 rifle as soon as possible and to the UZI later on. The 
HK G3-SG1 is used by drug addicts located in seedy hotels all over Berlin. Find one, kill 
him and take his gun.
*Mission Support provides you with 1000DM every day. Simply take the cash from the supply 
room.
*If case you need extra money, you can sell weapons in the butcher shop (see section 3.2.2 
for instructions on how to access the butcher's black market). Remember you can also use 
your cash card to draw (a limited ammount of) money from a private bank account.
*Kevlar vests are your friends. Make sure you always own the best model available, 
especially before entering the aqueduct (see section 3.2.2)
*When encountering hostile characters (like embassy guards, panhandlers and muggers), you 
can either run away or fight, bribing does never work (at least it did not for me). 
Chatting has no positive effect either.
*When encountering police officers or border guards, show them your passport. Bribing or 
threatening will result in you getting jailed.
*When encountering guards in Charlottenburg Palace, just chat with them, and they will move
on.
*Sneaking decreases the chance to encounter hostile characters, while increasing the chance 
to encounter police officers.
*Drunks (not obnoxious ones :)) can be threatened to scare them away. This does not work at 
night time.
*Most shops and locations are accessible only at day.
*If you go to your apartment at night time you are given the option to sleep during the 
night.
*The best way to travel from West to East Berlin (or vise-versa) is by using the U-Bahn and 
stopping at Friedrichstrasse. This is the only way you can take firearms with you when 
crossing the border.

3.2 Walkthrough

3.2.1 Obtaining the computer chip
 
You start in your apartment. Use your computer to read your assignment and mails. 
Take the 30DM, the S&W Model 10 and the US passport. Visit Mission Support and go to the 
supply room. Take the 1000DM, the FERAT and the Walther P5. Go to the Ax-Bax Bar and bribe 
the bartender. He will tell you about Waldemar Werner, a guard in Charlottenburg Palace. 
Go to Charlottenburg Palace. Upon entering the building follow following directions: 

North + East 
Go to the 2nd floor via lift. 
West + South + South + South + West + West  + West + West + West + West + South + 
South + South + South + South + South + South + South

You should now have reached the "Glass and Coins" room and the FERAT should be blinking. 
Search the room to locate the computer chip. Leave the room from the door south and look out 
for Waldermar Werner, the guard with the moustache. Bribe him till he turns off the alarm. 
Go back to the "Glass and Coins" room and take the chip. 
Leave Charlottenburg Palace. Go to your apartment, drop the chip and read your mails.

3.2.2 Obtaining the floppy disk

Take the photo-fax and the lock-picks. Visit Mission Support and go to the supply room. 
Take the 1000DM, the Visa Card and the flashlight. Go to the butcher shop. Photograph the 
butcher (Gerhard Bruckner). Return to your apartment and read the dossier about him on your 
computer. There's a "password" mentioned in it which is automatically added to your 
inventory. Return to the butcher shop and tell Gerhard Bruckner the password. You now have 
access to his black market. Buy the gas mask (and optionally the NV-goggles). 
Go to the Tempelhof Building and to the basement via lift. Turn on your flashlight (or wear 
the NV-goggles) and wear your gas mask. Continue south till you reach a locked door. 
Use your VISA card to open the door. Follow following direction to enter the aqueduct:
South + South + East + East + East + East + South
This is the exactly the part of the game that caused me to express numerous prayers, 
screams and swearings at the developer team of TTC. This level is extremely big and 
dangerous... hostile encounters guaranteed. Luckily for you, I already spend 4 hours 
drawing a map of this level and can just give you the directions ;/ 
Arm yourself with your best weapon, turn on sneak mode and get ready:

South + East + East + East + East + South + East + East + East + East + East + East + 
East + East + South + South + South + South + East + East + South + East + East +
East + East + East + North + North + North + North + East + East + East + North + 
North + East + East + South + South + East + East + East + South + East + East +
East + East + East + South + South + East + East + East + East + East + East + East.

You should have reached a locked door. Pick it and enter the basement of the Soviet 
Embassy.

East + East + East + East + North
Go to the 1st floor via lift.
South + East + North
Go to the 2nd floor via lift.
South + West + West + North + North + West + West + West + South + West

You should have reached Hilde's office. Search the room to find a hidden safe. Pick the safe 
with your lock picks. Search the safe for the floppy disk. Take the disk. Return to the lift 
and go back to the 1st floor.

South + South

Kill the entrance guard and go through the last door leading out of the embassy in East 
Berlin. 
Take a deep breath ("In your face, Ivan ;)").
Return to your apartment, drop the disk and read your mails.

3.2.3 Le Grande Finale

Travel around West Berlin till you meet a (disguised) panhandler. He will tell you that the 
chip and disk have been stolen from you. Returning to your apartment you will notice that 
indeed, the parts are gone. You should have received a new mail uncovering a new possible 
location of the parts. Ignore it, it's a false lead, planted by a double-agent in the CIA. 
Go to the OpernCafe but do not enter it. Stay outside and stake out. After some attempts, 
you will see Nigel Holt (you boss), coming out, hailing a cab and drive off. Hail a cab 
yourself and order it to follow Nigel. You will reach an abandoned house guarded by a 
vicious dog. Kill the dog and enter. You will encounter Nigel Holt and an unknown character, 
both will try to convince you that the other one is in fact a KGB spy, the mole within CIA 
that stole the chip and disk from you and provided the false lead. I will leave this one to 
you to decide. 
Now is the time for action, Moondancer :) 

3.2.4 Other puzzles to solve

*Kill the first assassin you encounter and search him. You will find an empty box of matches 
from the Ax Bax Bar, a clue suggesting to check out that bar.
*Bribe Wolfgang Schultz, the owner of Roof Bookstore to get information about Hildegard 
Frobel.
*Bribe Karl Heinrich, the street-vendor, to get information about Hildegard Frobel.
*Bribe Herman Ahrens, the shoemaker, to be able to buy false documents from him.
*Buy a false WG passport from the shoemaker and give it to Dieter Klein, the street vendor, 
to get another clue about the Ax Bax Bar.
*After you find the chip, go to Hildegard Frobel's apartment and stake out. Wait till Hilde 
leaves the building, pick the lock and enter. Place a super bug and return to your 
apartment. Use the bug recorder and listen to a conversation between Hilde and William 
Martin, indicating that the disk is in the Soviet Embassy.
*After you find the chip, got to the roof bookstore and listen. You will hear a conversation 
indicating that the disk is in the Soviet Embassy.
*Bribe Gerhard Bruckner, the butcher, to get the clue about the Operncafe.
*Photograph characters and read their dossiers at your computer in your apartment.
