The Relentless Adventures of Captain Speedo, Episode 16: Let them "heat" cake! is a Hugo interactive fiction game and is © 2001 by Gilles Duchesne. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 16 event.

As the hero, Captain Speedo, you are piloting a space barge filled with precious antiques to Provolone Prime. But suddenly, a powerful forcefield starts dragging the barge towards the nearest sun! This is a nefarious plan from some villian or your name is not Captain Speedo!

This solution is by David Welbourn.

Galactic Bridge Command Center

> z. enter tube.

Cargo Bay

> x antiques. x chevrolet. x torch. x cheese.

> x ball. take ball. shake ball. x monkey. take monkey.

> x desk. open desk. take poem. x poem. read poem. close desk. take desk.


> x guillotine. throw monkey at guillotine.

End of Passageway

> shake ball.

Marie Antoinette's Lair

> x Marie. x screen. read poem.

See you next time, cadets!





Also, as far as I can tell, if you don't have the poem when you get to Marie's lair, you're stuck. There's no way back and the barge never reaches the sun.


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.
