CARD #1 - Front :
READ THIS CARD BEFORE YOU BEGIN
The object of the game is to save the Aquadome from danger. You'll have to navigate your
sub, the Scimitar, to the Aquadome, and then start solving the mystery with the help of
the people that work there.
1. To start the game ("boot up"), see the Reference Card that's inside your SEASTALKER
2. When you see the prompt (>) on your screen, SEASTALKER is waiting for your command.
There are three kinds of commands that SEASTALKER understands:
A. Direction commands such as GO WEST
B. Commands that do things such as LOOK AT THE BOOK
C. Commands given to people such as MARV, GIVE ME THE KEY
3. To go places, north, east, south, etc., just type the direction you want to go: N, E,
S, W, NE, SE, SW, NW, UP, DOWN, IN, OUT. (Notice that you can type the eight compass
directions with one or two letters.) Or type GO TO (a person, place or thing).
4. To do things, look at things, or explore places, just type whatever it is you want to
do. For example: GO TO THE AIRLOCK; or OPEN THE HATCH; or EXAMINE THE BOOK are all
commands that you might use.
Once you are familiar with simple commands, you'll want to try some more complex ones.
Some examples of these can be found in the "Communicating with SEASTALKER" section of
your Instruction Manual.
CARD #1 - Back :
5. To give commands to people, just type their name, then a comma, then the command. For
example: BILL, GIVE ME THE TOOL, or TIP, TURN ON THE SONARSCOPE.
6. Important! After every command, you should hit the RETURN (or ENTER) key. This will
make SEASTALKER respond to your command.
7. The special line on your screen is the status line. It tells you three things: the
name of the room you are in, your score and the number of turns you have taken during the
8. You can pick up and carry some items in the game. For example, if you type TAKE THE
TOOL, you will be carrying the tool. You can type INVENTORY (or I) to find out what you
9. If you have any trouble playing, just refer to the Instruction Manual for more
detailed instructions and sample commands.
10. When you want to stop playing, save your place for later, or start over, see the
instructions in the "Starting and Stopping" section of your Instruction Manual.
