|1: The African Veldt|
In the Veldt
For the first several turns, you can't use the portal for unknown reasons.
>info. x lions. x meat. x portal. x me. enter portal. smell. touch portal. enter portal.
Uh-oh. Big disaster just happened. Note: You can't enter the pod, nor type anything on the keyboard.

|2: Mysterious Ulthar|
Can someone explain why "turn dial to 2" acts the way it does, instead of just doing it?
>set dial to 2. n.
Out of the Hamlet
Sorry: there's no hamlet, stream, or bridge to examine.
On the wooden bridge
Likewise, the herring and force wall aren't examinable, nor does 'jump' or 'swim' help.
>n. n. x leaflet. read it. take it.
>s. s. set dial to 3. n.
|3: Fantasy World|
Geez. Welcome to the fantasy world of diddly-squat. Couldn't we see some scenic vista with, y'know, things in it instead of this formless featureless description?
>x leaflet. read it. take it. s. set dial to 4. n.
>x river. x trees. se.
|4: Young Carl Gauss' Home|
|(to Lab)||At the|
At the Gate
Note: The house itself isn't examinable. The dog isn't 'animate', nor can you pet it.
>x gate. open it. x briars. x plaque. x dog. tickle dog.
>x leaflet. read it. take it. nw. w. w.
The paddle is too large to take through the woods for whatever secondary use is hinted at here, so I assume the canoe is needed to move the paddle. But the game won't let me push or take the canoe, nor does it understand 'launch', 'row', or 'paddle' as a verb. It's possible that I missed out on solving a puzzle here, but it's more likely the implementation of the canoe wasn't finished.
>x canoe. x paddle.
>s. e. s. set dial to 5. n.
|5: Ye Olde Adventurous Castle|

|6: Hellish Dungeon|
Note: Anything put into the bag can't be taken out again until you've tamed it.
>x bag. x label. take bag. x leaflet. read it. take it.

Sometimes, violence is the answer.
>put leather in bag. take leather. take paddle. spank bag with paddle. take leather. take bag. s.
The description has changed to show a disturbing number of cats in the trees, however, you can't refer to the cats at all.
I think there's not likely to be much more to see in this game as it is, and we can stop now.
