Cadaver is a puzzle solving Adventure/RPG game by the
Bitmap Brothers. Gameplay takes place in a orthogonal
view, with the player guiding the dwarf Caradoc up
through five treachorous levels of the castle.
I was actually surpised that no walkthrough seemed to
exist for Cadaver, since its pretty alright game, so I
decided to endevour to make one myself. Currently only
the complete solutions to levels 1, 2, and 4 are provided,
with partial solutions to 3 and 5 (as far as I've got).
If anyone can add details, PLEASE, PLEASE, email at:
Starting at different levels
Cadaver uses a special data system for defining each level.
Thus, you can start play on a different level simply by
copying the files in the data subdirectory of the level you
wish to level 1. The batch file below should be typed in and
saved in the directory Cadaver is located in under the name
IF EXIST DATA\0\ROUTINE1.TAD GOTO NOCOPY
REM NO BACKUP OF 1ST LEVEL EXISTS, SO MAKE COPY
COPY DATA\1\*.* DATA\0 > NUL
IF NOT "%1" == "1" GOTO NOTONE
COPY DATA\0\*.* 1 > NUL
COPY DATA\%1\???%1.* DATA\1\???1.* > NUL
COPY DATA\%1\ROUTINE%1.TAD DATA\1\ROUTINE1.TAD > NUL
LEVEL should be invoked with a number from 1 to 5, which indicates
the level you wish to start at. Note that you should be carefull with
saved games saved across different levels started in this manner;
loading a saved game for a different level which was started at
will crash the program.

O titles back to the right. Push the northern stack down by one, and
repeat the procedure for I, then A, then finally push the 'N O S' to
the left to spell 'D I A N O S'. The eastern door will unlock.
E, get the bottles, W, N, give the alkaline restorer bottle to the
thief, who'll give you some info. S, E, throw switch, N. Here there
is a gambling machines you can use your tokens on, by dropping them
on the holes. The southern one can give you gold, stamina potions,
and also a key. [it will break after it gives you the key; it unlocks
the door in the S, W, NW room which leads back into the room which had
four demons in it], the northern one can give you multiple tokens, and
the middle one can give you lots of tokens, but the chance is smaller.
E, into the room with four pits. Fall down the western pit.
You'll need to throw the switch reasonably quickly. Do this
by stacking two bottles on the southern end of the chest
[without moving it], and making a diagonal jump from one corner
of the chest onto it [diagonal so the wall stops you from jumping
right over it]. Throw the switch and get back the bottles and the
key. Open chest and get the stuff. When the clock has completed
three circuits, a lock should appear on the northern wall. Quickly
unlock it with the key to raise the bars. N, get unknown [stamina]
potion. E, N. In this flame room wait around a bit [you wont get
hit by the fire bolts as long as you don't move into them; they won't
appear on a position if you stay still]. S, pick up the Unlock door
wand, Bless potion, and Mind Blast. S, S, S [teleport].
E, S, N, give the potion which aids eternal rest to the thief.
He'll tell you about needing four gold keys in the main room. As
you recall you had one which you unlocked lock 1 with, and you
should currently have another gold key which you got from the room
to the south. Once the other two gold keys are found, the locks
should be unlocked in the order 1, 4, 3, 2 [you've done 1 already].
Anyway, look at the thief to get a mind blast spell, S, E, N, E.
Fall in the northern pit and collect all the gold, and then follow
the route back to the four pit room again. Then fall down the southern
pit. Put some objects in front of the door to prevent roots growing
and blocking your escape, and then pick up the sacks as they appear.
Once finished, follow the root [heh heh] back to the four pit room again.
E, E, run to the eastern side of the room [where the demons wont hit
you]. Cast dispel evil, and then hit the left one with a diagonally
thrown shirikan, and then the right one when it pauses between shots.
Cast unlock door on door, N, E. The symbols on the posts must match
the ones in the room two screens to the west. Do this by pressing the
levers in the order left, right, right, left. Press button, E. Read
the books to get info. W, W, W, press button, W, open chest, get planet.
E, E, N, E, drag chest to the fourth column of squares on the wall from
the left. Stand on chest and jump to open hidden panel. Get the small
moon. W, N, E, read books: one of them (a book on marriages) has an
unknown [unlock chest] spell, examine tapestry and get key.
W, W, place candles in the center of the tiles which touch the eastern
door [this will block missiles which start]. Fall into section get
chest, and when bars rise, throw the switch, and drop an object on
tile which has changed to depress the switch [dont know what it does].
Get the candles, and go E. Open chest and take the two gold coins
[DONT TAKE THE BRONZE COIN!]. Now would be a time to drop a whole
bunch of stuff you've been lugging around that you don't need in one
of the rooms, like spare Shirikans, Mind blast spells, [you wont be
needing weaponary again in this level], stamina potions, etc. You can
always come back for them.
W, W, open chest, and get the spells. Cast read magic on the
unknown scroll. Go back to the Adding machine room. One of the
books in the library told you four numbers: 29, 32, 16, 7. You've
got to form those totals using the four levels (where up is add,
down is subtract, and middle is nothing). Set the levels in each
of the four patterns to give the correct totals (U=up, D=down, N=neither):
29: D U N U 32: D D U U
16: U D D U 7: U D U N
W, cast unlock on chest, get planet, W, get planet, E, N. You should
have four planets by now, which must be placed on the correct poles
according the books on the planets scattered around. To do this, go
S, E, N, W, W, S to the upper room and drop the planets into the
fiery-planet NW hole little moon E hole
2-moon planet SW hole earth-like planet SE hole
Return to the Planetorium, and the four planets should be atop
the spikes, and the globe stopped spinning. Push the button in
the globe, and two hidden panels will reval the final two gold
Return to Central Hall, either by the southern route or via the
northern door in the passage [make sure all the lone switches in
that area of the castle are down, and fiddle with the switch by
the door to open it]. Unlock the three locks in the order lock 4,
lock 3, lock 2 to complete the level and be transported to the
fifth, and final level.
A few points unsolved sofar: the use (if any) of those four quartz
rocks I found earlier, getting into the room to the east of where
you entered the level, and the final cryptic message in a book: in
the North East tower the lever brings great rewards (might be the
room to the east of where you started which I haven't got into yet).
Pick up the marble, E, pick up the marble, step on oe of the small
tiles to make a skull appear, put marbles in skull, E, get two
potions on pedestals, E, flick first switch, second switch, stand
in very northern end of eastern end of passage to avoid getting hit
by the twirlys, then when they're moving to the left open the secret
panel behind the second block and get the potion. Keep trying E until
you get through.
Pick up emerald, E
