Some opening remarks:
Outside the Palace Complex
>look sign. look gate. open gate. n.
The Main Palace Courtyard
To the west are some portable elephants, and to the east is a pool, both of which you may ignore. DON'T "go water" at the pool; it's filled with alligators.
>look statue. n.
Steps Up to the Palace
DON'T go west or east! West is a deadly snake pit, and east has deadly guards (even if you're wearing a guard's uniform and have ID).
>look entrance. open entrance. n.
A Large Entrance Hall
The rug depicts the pool of alligators, and the book is a bad joke. The chamber to be west has a mural depicting the snake pit, and stranger, a straw basket with a Chrysler Imperial inside it!? You may ignore all of this.
>look rug. look book. n.
A Royal Meeting & Reception Hall
You can ignore everything here, too, although the painting does depict the harem. The banquet hall to the west only has a table and chairs, which you can ignore too.
>look painting. look container. open container. look snake. n.
The THRONE Room !!!
The throne is important later.
>look throne. w.
The Royal Kitchen
Finally, something useful.
>look counter. look cupboard. open cupboard. look saw. take saw. w
The Servant Quarters
>look pad. look hamper. open hamper. look uniform. wear uniform. w. n.
A Private Dining Room
>look set. look parchment. e. n.
A Large Recreation Room & Den
You need the umbrella, but DON'T open it indoors (that's bad luck). The monitor shows the torture chamber.
>look machine. look umbrella. look monitor.
>take umbrella. s. s. s. s. s. s. s.
Outside the Palace Gates
>open umbrella. drop umbrella. take card. look card.
>n. n. n. n. n. n. n. e.
The Royal Bedroom
Nothing for you here. The safe cannot be opened.
>look furniture. look safe. look dresser. open dresser. look socks. s.
An Elegant Study / Library
This room has several clues. Read the message on the desk backwards. The paper refers to a cabinet in the basement. The tapestry depicts the maze and hides the secret way into the harem.
>look desk. open desk. look paper. take tapestry. drop tapestry. s. s.
A Second Bedroom !?
DON'T try to enter the harem itself; the guards will kill you.
>look bed. look box. open box. look key. take key.
>look mirror. look door. n. n. w. s.
The THRONE Room!!
The THRONE Itself
The throne is either an elevator or a teleport booth. The game fails to be descriptive enough to tell us which.
>look button. push button. s.
In a Labyrinth Below the Palace
It's really not that much of a maze, to be honest.
>w. n. w.
An Alcove in the Maze Below the Palace
The mice are yet another joke. Elsewhere in the maze is a plaque, and a crate of golf balls, but you can ignore them. You can also ignore the rack in the torture chamber when you pass through it.
DANGER: You need the uniform and ID card before going west.
>look cabinet. open cabinet. look mice. push cabinet. w. w. w.
A Corridor Off the Torture Room
Best do what the key says, eh? The cell to the north has a rat; the cell to the south is empty. Of course, you want the cell to the west.
>look slot. look sconce. look key.
>insert key. pull sconce. w.
A Secret Prison Cell
Poor Penlope, she's been in this dungeon so long, she's forgotten how to spell her name correctly. Or talk. Or do anything at all. If Penlope is a dish, she must be a wooden one. Like, whee.
>look chain. look penlope. look saw. cut chain. take penlope.
>e. e. e. e. e. s. e. sit throne. push button.
