Hmm.

I can't figure out what to do with the Mortal Kombat guy. I've already figured out the rest, examined all the rooms, tried to pick up just about everything but I can't seem to figure out what that guy wants.

My guess is since he likes bad games, he'd *really* like a *really* bad game.
And there's one in a room very near him!
The problem is, how to get the damn thing.

That was a lot of fun! Now, if only I had written down where to enter the code...

EDIT: That map is gorgeous Landslide, well done!

I need chapter 8 now and that's all I think, but I've looked everywhere.


I'm sad now...

Unfortunately, whilst I know what I have to do I have no idea how to do it!
I can't get the damn game out of the machine.

Me neither, is there a turn limit on this game?

If there is then I'm screwed.

Well I'm sure that when push come to shove, you'll figure it out.

All I was left wondering was how to get the full score. I got the extra points for the suit, and ROMEEROOO, but I still need 10 points to get full score. Any help?
