Remarks by Magic Chris
DEATHMAZE 5000 HINT SHEET Deathmaze requires you to find torches and food to stay alive. Give these priority. Pits can get you to the next level if you jump into them, but you may not be able to return to the original level. Some objects can be used more than once. Events are often order-dependent. Something that doesn't work on the first level may work later on the fourth level, or after you have performed some other action. (1) Are you stuck in the room with the calculator?

(I forgot and had to replay half the game!) - Save Early, Save Often! It is difficult to draw the map, solve the puzzles and still find torches and food! - The name of the Monster in the Beowulf Saga is GRENDEL (just in case you wanted to know, ;-)) ----- I decoded the hints, and corrected the typos: (1) HIT LEFT TURN KEY FIVE TIMES, THEN HIT RIGHT TURN KEY FOUR TIMES, THEN LEFT KEY THREE TIMES.
