Since you are navigating a 3D character in this game, I must clarify that all

directional descriptions are given with respect to Carnby. For example, 'your
left' means Carnby's left -- NOT yours (the human) left. Also, please take
some time to read the manual and be familiar with the controls. I will not
repeat them in this file. Pay particular attention if you see the word
'Search,' in order for the search to be successful, you may need to try out
several different positions or spots. You will not find anything if you are
not standing on some hot spot -- even if you are searching the right subject.

Map seems to be a necessity at some point so I had included some, however due
to limitation of ASCII text, the maps are far from satisfactory.

                           GAME START

You are at the entrance to the ghost town Slaughter Gulch. Here you will find
nothing useful, so you better cross the bridge in front of you. Ignore the
ghost gunner who appears when you approach the bridge.

You are now in the town's main street. To your left is a saloon. There are
several other locations which you'll visit at an later stage but serve no
purpose for the time being. Approach the saloon, but don't enter yet. When you
are on the sidewalk just outside the saloon, turn right and walk straight
ahead to take the gas can. Go back and enter saloon.

Once you entered saloon, you'll see four items that interest you. Turn left
and go to the corner of saloon to get the oil can. Turn around and approach
the projector. Position yourself facing the two red wires and performs a
search (if you see nothing particular, try again at another location). When
you understand what the generator need, use the gas can on it to view the
movie clip. Turn around and walk to the table with a blue patch on top.
Perform a search and take the key. Turn around and approach the stage, search
and take the maraca. Go inside the small room beside the bar to get the box of

Go behind the bar and go all the way until you reach the trap door. A ghost
gunner will appear on 1/F, but if you position yourself below him, you should
be safe. After the ghost gunner left, search the shelf to take the wood
alcohol and flask. Now, position yourself to the left of the bull skull
hanging on the wall and pushes its horn. The trap door will open and a gunner
will appear. Defeat him and take the ace of diamonds and gold bullet he left
behind. Go down the trap door and take the lamp on your way. Use oil can on
lamp follow by using matches to lit the lamp, finally use lit lamp.

Here is the saloon cellar and there are only two things that interest you.
Walk all the way to the other end of the cellar and you will see a poster and
a cane. Search the poster to read the writings, then take the cane hung on the
wall besides the poster. Position yourself at the door of the nearest barrel
and opens it. After you opened the door, use the maraca to fool the snakes and
go inside the barrel. If you position yourself correctly, Carnby will climb
the ladder at the other end of the barrel automatically.

Carnby will be climbing up from a hole in Cell 1, note that this is a point of
no return which means you cannot go back into the cellar. On your left is a
bench, go there once you regain control and search it to get the stone. A
gunner will ascend through the same hole shortly after, kill him. Note that
gunners will keep ascending into the cell if you do not get out. Walk over to
the door and position yourself as close to it as possible, then use the cane
to get the key on floor. Use this newly found key to unlock the cell door and
get out.

Proceed to Cell 2 and position yourself in front of the ghost there. Drop the
bottle of wood alcohol on the floor. After the ghost took it and vanished,
take the flask he left behind. Throw the stone to any wall and walk over there
to get the Indian amulet. This amulet is the most important item in the entire
game, so make sure you don't lost it until chapter 9.

Forget Cell 3 since there is nothing interesting there. Go to Sheriff's Office
instead. Search the desk and take the sheriff's badge and bullets. Read all
the posters in this room, they contain useful hints on later puzzles. Now,
position yourself in front of the lock of gun case and uses the key you found
in saloon on it. Search the case to take the Winchester.

Now go to the ladder. Once you enter this hallway, you will notice a large
closet and a closed door. As in all other InDark games, push the closet to
block the door -- do not let the ghost inside escape or you will die. After
blocking the door, open the closet and search for the shotgun. Go up the
ladder to reach the roof.

Walk along the roof corridor to the room with the protected item and pick up
the whip on your way. When you arrive at that room, you will see a stone slab
floating in the air emitting a red light. Do not touch the light or you will
die. Good timing is important here, when you see the light turns off, run
towards the item below the slab to take it. Continue going through the
corridor. Shortly after, you will see a room with a locked door and a cast
iron plate outside. Take the plate and use the Winchester to blow the door
lock, but do not go inside yet -- you will return here later. Instead,
continue with your journey. Around the next bend you will see a shaft and an
item on the floor, leave both of these alone. Position yourself just passes
the entrance of the room with a ghost gunner and uses the whip to attack him.
By doing so, you can obtain a bag full of gold coins. Use the gold bullet and
ready your Winchester. I suggest you save game at this point since you only
got one chance. Shoot the ghost gunner using the Winchester. If you succeed,
he will disappear. Take the sack he left behind and continues your trip into
the next room. Inside this room you will see a barrel. Walk around it until
you find a short fuse -- note the location. Then go to the corner to take the
gatling gun and flask. After completing all these, go back to that once locked

When you are inside, use lit lamp follow by using voodoo hangman's rope to
deal with the ghost. Position yourself as close to the shaft at the other end
of the room as possible, and use the sack full for scorpions to open the door,
then push the lever. Walk onto the shaft cover to search for a stick of
dynamite and a piece of dried meat. Go back to the room where you find the
gatling gun. Along your way, two gunners will appear. I suggest using the
gatling gun to kill them. When you arrive, the door will close behind you. At
this point, hide beside the door until the ghost stop shooting. Position
yourself at the location where you find the fuse. Use the fuse follow by the
stick of dynamite, then use matches. Hide behind the barrel before the
dynamite explode. Go through the wall and stand onto the plate with an arrow

Proceed along the corridor until you see a statue. Leave that statue alone but
ready your gatling gun and note this location. Go around the bend and kill the
gunner. Walk towards and examine the machine.

                             CHAPTER 3

Use the sheriff's badge on the machine to act as the missing gear, then use
the whip to attack that machine. Go through the newly opened door. In this
room, you will find a flask and a box of bullet on the plank. After you took
the bullets, go back into the room.

Now is a good time to clean up your inventory, drink all flasks and use the
bag full of gold coin to reload your shotgun. Also, reload your Winchester by
using the bullets. If you want additional protection, use that cast iron

Position yourself so the plank is directly in front of you and runs all the
way out. Remember, run NOT walk.

This is the first floor of the saloon. If you had spent some time exploring
the saloon, you'll find a damaged staircase which leads to here. On the wall
to your right is a floor plan, consult it if you like. Walk forward to the
next scene and you will see a large hole in the middle of the corridor. Do not
spend time figuring how to jump across because you cannot. Take the jewelry
ring lie besides the hole and light all four wall lamps with matches. After
you did this, you will learn more about the amulet and unlocked a door.

Upon entering the room, walk to and face the clock. At the moment the vulture
starts to move, put the dried meat into the clock (use dried meat) to earn a
token. After picking up the flask, newspaper and night valet on the floor, go
through the large painting. If you read the newspaper, you will know why you
can go through a painting.

                             CHAPTER 4

There are lots of searching to do here. Search the dressing table to take the
30/30 bullets, bulb and pearl. Then push the mirror on it to take the key.
Search the bed carefully to find the arrow and place it in the hand of the
cupid (one of the bed posts). Go through the painting and out to the corridor.
Use the newly found key to unlock the door next to the big hole and enter that

Take the flask, diary and instruction sheet on the floor and read both the
diary and instruction sheet. Go to the dragon statue besides the bed. Use
costume diamond ring follow by use diamond to take a box of bullet.

Go out to the balcony, to your right is a partially opened door. Walk over to
that door and when you hear gun shots, drop the night valet. After the ghost
disappears, push the wooden door to form a bridge and enters the photo
processing room.

You will see several photos on the wall, examine them if you like. All other
items are placed either on or besides the small table. Go over there and take
the key, flash, shutter release and instruction sheet. Use bulb then use
shutter release to make yourself a flash. Read the new instruction sheet if
you like, then go all the way back to the corridor.

Unlock the last of the three locked doors with the key and go in. To your left
is a piano and to your right is a locker. Besides the locker, you will see a
circular thing on the floor. Stand onto that circle and use the flash. Go over
to the piano and insert (use) the coin to play it. After that, face the locker
and hit it to force it open. Search inside for a flask and war stick. Remember
to take the oil can besides the piano.

This is another point of no return so cleaning up your inventory and save game
is recommended. After you are satisfied, jump down the hole. Use oil can,
matches and lit lamp to see.

                             CHAPTER 5

Do not bother with the bats -- you cannot kill them, just run like hell to any
direction and enter the doorway.

                        XX 11 XX 6 ! Indian
                  XX 13 XX 10 XX 7 XX 5 ! IN !

                  XX 14 XX  9 XX 8 XX 4   XX 1
                  XX 15            XX 3   XX 2

This is a rather standard sequence, so you should not run into any trouble.
Just remember to use the jump command appear under Action to jump from block
to block. When you are on block 5, use the war stick to dismiss the Indian.
Walk onto the landing and take the flask and small key on the floor. Continue
with the journey until you reach block 15. Use the Indian amulet to summon
some help.

After escaping from ravine, you will find yourself inside a mansion. Kill the
two ghosts here and take the flask and key they left behind. Unlock library
with the key and go in. Inside, you will find several books that can give you
more background information on this game, but reading them is not require in
order to finish this game. The only important item is a pocket watch with can
be find by searching the statue at the far side of the library.

Go back and unlock the study room with the pocket watch and go in. Once inside,
you will see a man, do not kill him! Walk to and touch him to take a story
board. Proceed towards the wooden ladder in the center of Study and more
ghosts will appear. Kill them all -- there are several more in other parts of
the mansion, feel free to hunt them down.

Use a gun to shoot the window behind the curtain and ascend the ladder to get
out. Once you are in the cemetery, walk over to the circular stone slab in the
center and use the war stick on it. Turn around and stand besides the grave
with 'O.E.J.' inscribed on. Use the ace of diamond to open that grave (Yuck!)
and take the message.

Search the table when you are back inside the mansion to take oil can. Walk
over to the sideboard and take the roll of film and bag of pemmican. Approach
the fire place -- below the bear head, and use oil can on it.

                             CHAPTER 6

Enter the ball room and go all the way down until you reach the stage, search
the phonograph on your right to take items. Go back half way down the room and
search the lady standing besides a column. Then search the fat guy standing
opposite to her.

Go back to the kitchen and walk behind the sideboard. Go down the corridor and
exit by the door. In front of you is another locked door, use 30/30 bullet
follows by hammer to blow the lock. Open door and enter the room.

On the long dressing table, you will see the model of a house. Walk over there,
search and take all items. Enter the second half of this room and stand in
front of the mounting table. Use light bulb, guitar string and roll of film to
obtain information from the movie clip. Go to the next room.

Walk straight forward to take and read the book on the table. Continue your
walk until you reach the other side of the room. Open the painting by using
the search command and search inside. You must continue searching until four
numbers had been shown at the bottom of the screen.

Turn around and go behind the counter to your right to reach the safe. Use
pearl and 'key to a safe' to unlock it, then open it. When the safe opens, a
ghost will appear and took your amulet. Chase him and hunt him down to get it
back. After you got the amulet back, go inside the safe to take the cartridge
and suitcase. Go to the window and open it.

                             CHAPTER 7

I assume this is some sort of a miner's store, walk to the big man to take and
read the message, then approach the mining cart and search inside for items.
There is also a flask at the other end of this store, feel free to explore.
After you searched the cart, you will ride on it to the other end of the track
-- the railway station. At this point, I suggest you walk around town a bit
and be familiar with all routes before you enter the station. There are also a
few gunners to satisfy your killer's instinct. You might notice several items
that you cannot take, note their locations.

After you are done with exploring, go inside the railway station. To your left,
you will see a signboard with the word 'Station' painted on it. Go over there
and push it, then take the key on the floor. You can use this key to lock the
suitcase. Go to the other end of the station and besides those pipes (the item
is concealed from you) search for an eye-bolt.

Turn around and approach the door with a bell besides it. Use the eye-bolt to
strike the bell to set the door in motion. Save game at this point is
recommended and you may also want to clean up your inventory.

Time yourself and rush through the door. When you are out, turn to your left.
Consult the map you find earlier to set the blasting cap and detonator box so
you can blast the station to pieces.

Turn around and walk to the water tower -- opposite to station. When you
approach it, a ghost will appear. Drop the suitcase key and suitcase on the
floor. Two more gunners will appear at this point, LET THEM KILL YOU! This is
supposed to happen so don't panic.

                             CHAPTER 8

Interesting, isn't it? You turned into a mountain lion! Now, get out of the
cave and leave cemetery through the gate. Go across the street and enter
saloon. To your left, there is a broken staircase concealed from your view, go
over there and you will jump upstairs. Approach that big hole in the corridor
and jump over it (jump is a command under Action). Run to the window on the
other end of the corridor and jump onto the roof of sheriff's office -- you
might need to keep the run action for a prolonged period before you will jump.

Once you are on the roof, run along the maze to the location where you saw a
statue which is holding something. Run through that hole to jump onto the
statue to get what you need.

Now is time to prepare for battle, go to the alley in between the miner's
store and mansion. Inside you will find a can of tar, approach it to apply it
on your claw. Go into the mansion and approach the can of silver dust besides
Study to apply silver on claw. Now go back to the cave. Kill all werewolves
you encounter on your way. When you are back inside the cave, approach the pit
in the center to drop the statue into it.

After you are back from death, take the colt that ghost dropped and approaches
the water tower. Drop your colt onto the floor, then touch your double to
absorb him into you. Pick up the colt and climb the water tower. Once you are
up there, walk a few steps forward then turn left or right to walk off the
plank. After you lowered yourself into the tower, prepare to fight and kill
the ghost there. Pick up the metallic brush he left behind. There is also a
flask here, search for it if you like. In the center of the water tower, you
will see a small piece of wood with a hole in it. This is also a point of
return, so save game if you want. Insert (use) the metallic brush in it and
jumps down the hole.

Walk ahead to exit the corridor and into an underground cavern. Upon entry,
turn to your left and pick up the dead leaf. Then go to the opposite corner to
take and read the notebook. On the wall, you will see a sectional map of this
cavern -- feel free to examine it. Use the dead leaf on the Indian sculpt to
open the door. Climb the ladder and go through corridor to reach the next

Here, you will see 2 ghosts, kill them! Search the bed to the right of the
entrance for a pick-axe and also search the bed besides the exit at the other
end for a flask. Go into next room.

Pick up and read the paper at the corner of this room.

                       --+              +--
                         ! < =          !
                         !   = =        !
                         !     = =   = =!
                         !       = = =  !
                       --+              +--

To get across the knife bed, all you need to do is walk out into thin air and a
stone slab will appear below you -- I know, this sounds like one of the
puzzles in Indiana Jones movie. Follow the map above should get you across.

                             CHAPTER 9

Kill the ghost here and enters library through the doorway.

After you killed the library ghost, go to the column opposite to the entrance
to search for candlestick. Then take the water pitcher besides that column.
Feel free to search and take other items for examination, they provide
additional information on the story line.

Exit library and take the needle on your way. Walk down the corridor and when
you see the small man, position yourself beside him and pour water in water
pitcher on him. Enter elevator.

Take piggy-bank and throw it again the wall to get the glass plate inside.
Push lever to start elevator.

When you arrive, get out of elevator and go to the other end of this room.
Position yourself in front of the microscope and use glass plate, then search
the microscope and notes the color patches on the plate.

Push the colored panel on both sides of the wall according to the sequence you
saw (gray, green, blue, red) and enter next room.

Walk forward and search for a vial on the table, then go to the other side of
the laboratory.

                            CHAPTER 10

This would be an excellent time to clean up your inventory because you will
loss most of them shortly. Position yourself in between the table and cell,
use (NOT drink) vial of potion to shrink yourself -- Alice in wonderland?
Enter the cell and when you are back into your own self, use vial again to
poison your needle. Use the poison needle as your weapon to fight the ghost
doctor. After you defeated him, take the key and straw he left behind. Also,
take the bottle of ammonia on the floor. Use the key to unlock the cell door
and get out.

Use the vial again, this time, go into the small hole under the table. When
you are inside, use straw and run ahead to pole vault across the moat. Take
that bottle of potion at the corner and walk out of the corridor.

After you are out, you will be back to normal. The moment you got control
back, run to the ore (the lump of shinning metal across the room) and pour
(use) the potion onto it. Step back while the spider drinks it. After the
spider shrunk, walk onto it and step on it! Take the pot of glue besides the
spider web, but be careful -- DO NOT touches the web. Apply the glue to
yourself and go to the other end of the room. Here, you will see light shining
from a hole above. Position yourself in the light and faces the wall to climb

Once you climbed up, run towards the table as quickly as possible and grab the
head. Turn around and throw the head down the hole you climbed up -- the ghost
will follow the head and leave you alone. Go to the other end of the room and
take the lead ingot. Push the stand aside and take the flask and Winchester.
Ready your Winchester, save game and enter next room.

The ghost in this room is "Cobra" who is an expert in karate. Your only hope
is to gun him down before he can even approach you. After you killed it, take
the wig and silver dollar he left behind. Take the flask in the corner if you
like. Examine the poster on the wall and insert (use) the silver dollar into
the slot to open the door. Go inside to take the matches, then open the door
and enter the torture chamber.

Do not step inside the skull drawn on floor yet for it will kill you at the
moment. To the left and forward, you will find a bowl. Position yourself in
front of it and uses the lead ingot and matches. After Emily escaped, walk to
that location again to take the wand. Other items in this room will not aid
you directly but will provide clue to puzzles at an later stage. Examine them
if you like. Besides Emily is the entrance to a corridor, enter it.

Once you entered, the door will lock behind you. To get pass this one, you
will need to kill the ghost here real fast, turn around to face the door you
came in and stand at a suitable distance away from it. Throw the bottle of
ammonia at the door so the smell can wake up Emily -- she will help you stop
the advancing spiked wall. Approach the spiked wall and use the wig on the
hook above it. Don't forget to pick up the knife the ghost left behind, you
MUST have it! Open the spiked wall and save game.

Once entered, you will be surround by three ghosts that cannot be kill in
conventional ways. Run to
the left and enter the room with an eagle statue. Face the statue and use the
wand to kill Elwood Brothers. Go back and open the boiler's valve by using
search command, then pick up and use the rubble glove lying beside it. Arm
yourself with the knife and attacks those electrical wires hang on the wall
(beside the locked exit), run back to the eagle statue room and wait for Jen
Stones' death. Go out and search this room for a sack of coal before joining

Exit through the newly opened door and walk to the locomotive. Climb the
ladder attached to enter. Pour the sack of coal into boiler and use matches to
light it. Push the handle to the right of the boiler to start train.
