Moon Over Jupiter
by Admiral Jota

Moon Over Jupiter is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by Admiral Jota. It was a participant in the Speed-IF 2001 event.

In this small game, you play as a man who's been been traveling for sixteen weeks in this tin can but now you're finally at Io, jewel of space. You're eager for some shore leave, but your crewmate Brutus changed the airlock password. Guess you better wake that hamster up from his cryosleep and get him to open it.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
