Bugfixes provided by Bedazzle and Einar Saukas:
  • In the original Gargoyle Games release, asking Ai about door to Paradise provides answer about Tertia instead. This bug was later fixed in Rebound and Your Sinclair re-releases.
  • There's a second "Room of Misery" misplaced in the middle of Trollywnd. Fixed using POKE 29553,130.
  • Your experience raises whenever you enter a new special room, except for room "word is no word" where experience is raised outside. Fixed using POKE 44978,88.
  • If you type "APEX,TA" then Apex will reply "GLAD TO HELP" but he won't go away. Fixed using the following patch:
            org $917d
    call $f820

    org $bec2
    db $80

    org $f820
    ld a,($af57) ; IF PEEK ($af56)<>2 OR PEEK($af57)<>17 THEN RETURN
    cp $11
    ld a,($af56)
    ret nz
    cp $02
    ret nz
    pop af ; (remove return address from stack)
    jp $918b ; ELSE GOTO $918b
  • Graphics for cyclops arm are corrupted.
  • It's possible to CALL objects, however they cannot be taken or examined, and they will float in the air.
  • Writing very long sentences will corrupt memory since there's no check for text input length.
