And congrats: very nice work on the adventure!

Hi @Blerkotron, here's an update to the fix. This should work under all circumstances (tested by myself with ESXDOS 0.8.6).

1. Download Velesoft's .Z80 snapshot pack from the above link and copy them to your CF/SD card.
2. Press the NMI button on your interface, then select the UNHALLOWED.TAP file and press I.
3. While still in the interface menu, select one of the three snapshot according to the Spectrum model you are using and press ENTER.
4. The game will load and run as normal.

Optionally, before copying Velesoft's snapshots to your card you can rename them to 128.Z80, PLUS2.Z80 and PLUS2A.Z80 to better distinguish them in the file menu, because ESXDOS has no long name file support at this time and will truncate their names.
Thank you, Alessandro - that's fantastic! I'll update the docs for the next version.

I spent so long staring at it in the PAW editor it seemed weird to go back to the standard ROM font when I reset. :)

Amazing work, Paul - thank you so much!

At last completed this brilliant adventure, one of the best I have ever tried. Superb in all aspects, and, as an animal lover and owning 9 cats, I particulary enjoyed Shadow :)

Just one small note, if you go to save Shadow without the knife, you get stuck on that room...

Review soon at the blog, but it is a mega game, for sure.

Oops! I'll be sure to correct that asap, I hadn't realised it was possible to get there without it. Thanks for the report, and I'm really glad you enjoyed the game!

Quick update:
I've released 1.02, which fixes the "getting stuck" problem described by André, plus a few other niggles.
