Re: Unhallowed - a spooky text adventure for Halloween

I did it! :D Here is the complete solution: (You begin outside your house) GO FRONT DOOR, GO DINING, EXAMINE SIDEBOARD, OPEN DRAWERS (you find the menu), USE PHONE (it does not work), GO KITCHEN, OPEN FRIDGE (the ready meal is inside), USE MEAL WITH MICROWAVE (you hear a noise from the letterbox), G...

I managed to spill some of the monster's blood on the floor, but I cannot pick it up. I tried with the bottle but I cannot make any use of it.

(The error was most probably carried over from the WoS database which also shows the same, wrong screen.) Speaking about loading screens, here is the new one for Death Pit (see my previous post ...

Re: Little bugs in the database

Blockade Runner is listed as a 48K-only title, when in fact it runs on the 16K as well; also see the inlays:

- "For any ZX Spectrum"
- "Para Spectrum 16K/48K"
