[Original list deleted] Corrections: The weapons total is 4, not 5. You must have written 5 because you end up with 5 weapons. But you don't get any points for the knife. The Cedar Box is worth 2 points, not 1. You have the Ruby Ring and the Amethyst Ring mixed up. The Ruby Ring is in the Lead Box on "Warning: Earthquake Zone". The Amethyst Ring is on "Need a Light?". BTW: These rings are not mere treasures. They also have an effect if you wear them. (But that's a different spoiler.) The 5 points at the end come from picking up the Alien Gemstone. The 2-point item hidden in a secret room somewhere is the Easter Egg. I don't think it's any more of a spoiler to name these items than to name any of the others. Especially when you then go ahead and tell how to get into the secret rooms. You missed two of the secret rooms. The secret room on "They May be "Slow" has another secret room inside it. That room has another teleporter that leads to a secret room on "Evil Undead Phantasms Must Die". As long as you're listing points, you might as well list treasure value, too. The corrected list is: pts $$$$$ item where 1 Walther P4 pistol Ground Floor 1 MP-41 Submachine Pistol Happy Happy, Carnage Carnage 1 M-79 Grenade Launcher Need a Light? 1 AK-47 Assault Rifle I'd Rather Be Surfing --------- weapon subtotal: 4/$0 2 Yellow Crystal Never Stop Firing 2 Blue Crystal They May Be Slow... 2 Orange Crystal Wrong Way 2 Violet Crystal Labyrinth 2 Green Crystal Watch Your Step 2 Black Crystal Where Only Fools Dare Tread --------- crystal subtotal: 12/$0 3 56.0 Alien Pipes Ascension 56.0 Alien Pipes (Muller's) Happy Happy, Carnage Carnage 1 9.2 Silver Key Welcome, Tasty Primate 1 Red Cloak Happy Happy, Carnage Carnage 2 Easter Egg a secret room, somewhere 1 Infra-red Goggles A Plague of Demons 2 Cedar Box A Plague of Demons 1 Radio Beacon Need a Light? 1 31.0 Amethyst Ring Need a Light? 1 Red Velvet Bag Lasciate Ogne Speranza, ... 1 Nuclear Device Watch Your Step 1 Lead Box Warning: Earthquake Zone 1 38.0 Ruby Ring Warning: Earthquake Zone 1 1.1 Gold Key Where Only Fools Dare Tread 5 54.0 Alien Gemstone Ok, Who Else Wants Some? --------- useful (or not so useful) item subtotal: 22/$245.3K 1 11.9 Emerald Lock & Load 0.1 Silver Medal They May Be Slow... 1 15.0 Silver Bowl They May Be Slow.. 1 11.0 Large Pearl Evil Undead Phantasms Must Die 1 38.0 Gold Ingot Feel the Power 1 120.1 Diamond Necklace Beware of Low-Flying Nightmares 418.0 Gold Ingots (x11) Beware of Low-Flying Nightmares 1 15.0 Sapphire Watch Your Step 15.0 Sapphire Watch Your Step --------- valuable (but useless) item subtotal: 6/$644.1K Totals 4 weapons 12 crystals 22 $245.3 useful items 6 $644.1 useless treasure ----------- 44 $889.4 (39/417.4K before the final battle) + $162.0 [But I'm not saying where this comes from!] ----------- 44 $1051.4 (which the game prints as "$1.514M"). You also get bonuses at the end. My bonuses (which are probably not the best achievable) were: 44 (from above) +6 Carnage bonus (+1 per 250 bodies) [I had 1676] +2 Accuracy bonus (+1 per 10% over 40%) [I had 62%] +10 Treasure bonus (+1 per $100K) [I had $1051.4K] +10 Time bonus (+1 per 10 hours left) [I got out at 10:18 am Monday] +5 Mission bonus (the bomb goes off in time) +10 Survival Bonus (you get out alive) --- 87 points total, out of 41 possible!?!?! -Ron Hunsinger
