If you want to host or  publish this  guide you need my permission.  I'm a nice
guy (most of the time, not always, and not in this FAQ...) and will most of the
times say yes, but hosting my guide without asking me  is stealing my work, and
you commit a crime.
Same is for claiming this guide as your work, altering its content,  selling it
without my permission and what  else you can  think of to  profit from my work.

   | iii |    Preface

After sucessfully translating  my Flight of the Amazon Queen FAQ from german to 
English I decided to translate my oldest PC only FAQ also into english language 
and present  it to a broader  audience.  It's been on gamefaqs  for over a year 
now, so it's about damned time. I hope  I get to translate all my jokes I threw 
in in  my first  german version,  so if  something looks  rally strange,  don't 
worry, this is just a german joke  I tried to  translate word by word  and that 
didn't work out to be funny in english  or it's just a normal typo or you  just 
don't have the required sense of humor, that is needed.
Whatever it is, like I said, don't worry, and Enjoy the game.
Be Vigilant.

   |  iv  |     CONTROLS


           1. Gamescreen

           2. Inventory

           3. Menu


     1. Gamescreen

The first  Chapter of  the CONTROLS  Section is  all about  what happens in the 
gamescreen and what happenes if you do something. After all you don't have that 
many choices of what to do.  To be precice,  you only have three options.  Here 
are all three options.

  1st Action

    Touch an Object with the Cursor:
        ->    Show what it is.

  2nd Action

    Click with the right Mousebutton:

         ->   use and/or pick up
              Foster decides himself what he will do with the object.

  3rd Action

    Click with the left Mousebutton:

         ->   Look at 

That all you can do with the combination of Mouse and brain.


          2. Inventory

You can access your  Inventory by  dragging the  Mouse to the  upper end of the 
The Inventory  window rolls down.  You just have to watch  this and then choose 
the  Item you  would  like  to use.  You do  this  as  described  in iv-1 (1-3) 
Controls  in Gamescreen.  The only  difference here is,  that you must keep the 
left Mousebutton  pressed to  read what  the object is.  When you  release  the 
button the words explaining the object disappear.



           3. Menue

  You access the Menue by pressing F5.
   There are a lot of buttons offering you to push around on them.
   What happens when you push a specific button is explained here.
 - Load Game

    here your Options are:

     - load a saved game
         Here you can
       - cancel

       - load a saved game
 - save game

    here your Optionens are:
     - save a game with a filename of up to 27 characters.
       All  in all  you can  save up  to  999 Savegames in the  ScummVM version
       thanks to MBB for this info!
     - cancel and get back up one level in the menu. 
 - end the game

   - yes

   - No

 - start a new game

   - yes

   - No

 - FX

   - sounds on  (bright)
   - sounds off (not bright)

 - Talkie and text
   - Text and talkie.
   - Text only.

   - Talkie only.

 - Music Volume

     You can't turn off  the music completely,  but you can turn it quieter and 

 - gamespeed

     If Foster is walking too slow for you, you put that switch to the very top
     and after this he will definetaly not be to slow for you anymore.
     Some riddles  in this game are  structured in a way,  that you  need to do 
     something  fast,  while something  else is happening.  In this case you'll    
     have to set the gamespeed to veeeeeeeeeeery veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery slow. Don't
     panic, and don't forget your towel, I will explain this in the Walkthrough 
     when needed.
 - back to the game

     That's a good thing to ask, eeeehrm,  I mean that's a good thing, that you 
     found that button, use this button to get back to the game.

                            *  IMPORTANT NOTE  *

Just read  the  Character  descriptions if  you  want that  the whole  game has 
nothing new to offer for you,  or if you already made huge progress in the game 
or already finished it.
In the following section of this FAQ there are lots of Spoilers, that will tell 
you parts of the plot of the story,and a lot of gamers are really pissed if you 
tell them what is going to happen in the game.
So, by this you have been warned,  continue reading in this section on your own 

                            *  IMPORTANT NOTE  *

     1. Robert Foster

Robert Foster  comes from the Gap,  a wilderness  out of  the huge metropolitan 
town, called Union City,  in this near future.  His parents  died in a helicop-
tercrash.  A tribe  of wild,  uncivilized  (whatever  that  means)  people have 
raised him.
The thing is, his name actually isn't Robert Foster, and that's the reason he's 
kidnapped out  of the Gap and taken to town.  So what else  should happen, than 
the helicopter crashing again and  Foster surviving again. At once the security 
man Stephen  Reich is after him,  but he will be  history more  soon than late.

     2. Joey

Joey is a robot, build by Foster.  He's kinda C3-PO for  Anakin Skywalker. Just 
that it's Joey and  Foster.  At the beginning of  the game Joey  is damaged and 
Foster just carries Joey's main circuit board around.
But if Foster manages to stick the  Circuit board into  another soulless robot, 
Joey can take over this guy and talk stupid to Foster. Very funny sometimes. At 
the end Joey mutates to a jerk and is called Ken then.

     3. Hobbins

Howard Hobbins  works in the  repair shop  in the  recycling plant.  Foster can 
steal his sandwich. hehe.
Hobbins will be punished very hard later because of the things YOU did.
Well, in the end it turns out that he will get a good job.
He looks  kind of  Irish to me,  but that  could  also be,  that in  the Talkie 
version all english speakers with strong accent do the voicing, even though the
game is set in a futuristic Australia, and this makes me thinks so. Well, he 
looks like an Irishman, and I say he is,  but I have no proove on this. Hell, I 
would ask him if I could.  And I would eat all his sandwiches all the time if I 

     4. Lamb
Lamb  is a  controller  in  the Pipefactory,  in which  also  Anita is working. 
He's an asshole   but he's very usefull for your aims.  It's very nice when you 
can downgrade him to a D-LINC.
He loves his cat and  shows her Videos titled Pussys on Parade.  Does this make 
him a pervert. I think not, but he sure is pervert.

     5. Stephen Reich

Stephen Reich is a Safetyman.  First he's after you,  then he's gone very fast!
He has  a LINC Status of 5  and lives in Belle Vue Gardens 2291.  You will make 
your way through half of the game with his ID Card.  He also has a pair of cool 

     6. Anita

Anita is a  beautiful girl that works in Lamb's  pipesfactory. The sad thing is 
she gets displaced to the Reactor  and was a D-LINC before.  She has no future.
Anita is a hacker and she's on your side. She wants to help you to destroy LINC 
and hosts  a virus for you in the Cyberspace of LINC.  Now you only have to get 
it. But that is harder than you think it could be. Or something like that.

     7. Dr. Burke

In then middle area of the big town  is Dr. Buke's practice. It seems like he's 
addicted to the narcotic  that he's sniffing all the time. It should be for his 
patients, but he uses it for himself. 
Dr. Burke is specialized  in plastic surgery.  He can implant you a Schriemann-
Port and he can also change and manipulate your fingerprints.
You can also talk to his patient with the opened stomach. heheheh!

     8. Miss Piermont

Miss Danielle  Piermont is a  nice old lady,  that  always  walks her dog.  She 
has got some very god connections and  can introduce  you into the  club in the 
lowest area.  But before that you have to torture her dog. Only a bit ;)


So here is the big Spoiler, the socalled Plotkiller,  so don't read on when you 
want to find out by yourself!
LINC is a virtual Programm,  written and created by your father.  He spend more 
time  with LINC  than with you  and your mother.  Then LINC took  control  over 
your (Fosters)  father  and  cLINCed  directly into  his brain.  LINC controlls 
everything in  Union City,  LINC wants you as  a replacement  for your  father, 
because he  is too  old.  If you take the  job or you  delegate it  to  someone 
else just  standing nearby  is your  own choice.  But be  fast and  think about 
where you come from.

   |  vi  |    WALKTHROUGH



The Voodopriest  is standing  at the  fireside,  he's your stepfather  and he's 
babbling to you. Your selfmade robot sees, that something is comming at you.
Helicopters appear and they land,  armed soldiers come near you  and explain to 
you that they are seacrching for someone.
You remember, that your mother died at a  helicoptercrash and you got raised by 
a tribe in the gap. They gave you the name Robert Foster.
The soldiers do a  DNA Test on you  and find out  that you are the one they are 
looking for.
So they do the only thing logical, they extinct the tribe that rasied you, your 
family,  and kidnap you from the gap  and stuff you in a  helicopter (again) to 
take you to the ciy.
Of course the helicopter crashes (again) and you survive (again...).
Hunted by the security of a mysterious  Mr. Reich you find yourself in front of 
a picturesque junk press.

After this nice introduction  I do not want to keep you on tenderhooks anymore, 
so here is what you have been waiting for, the long awaitet Walkthrough:



 Recycling Plant

Here is the place you run, as the cop is after you.
Go left to the stairs,  but don't  go down,  as you will be  shot when you step 
down the stairs.

So you  better  search for  the crowbar,  because the  door is  locked  and the 
crowbar might be useful here.

Well, the crowbar is not easy to find,  that's kind of the first riddle in this 
adventure. Drag the mouse on the upper border of the stairs, the game shows you 
the word stairs, now move the mouse  to the left end of the stairs and a little 
bit up. Perhaps you  need to go a little bit to the left.  Now it shows rung so 
you click with the right button and get the crowbar.
Use the crowbar on the door on the left.

The guard hears the noise and comes to check out, where the sound came from!

With a little bit of luck you survive  this unpleasant situation. Now enter the 
recycling Plant again.
Go down the stairs and enter the door to the right.

Look at the trash there.  One of the robots seems to  not have a circuit board, 
so smash in Joeys Circuits, and Joey will come to life. Now talk to Joey, who's 
trapped in a cleaning robot by now.

Go one more room to  the right and talk to Hobbins.  Open the cupboard door. So 
Hobbins won't let you open the door, so go back one room.
Now step on the lift. Once the alert is activated Hobbins will enter the scene, 
get you  away and turn  off the alert.  While Hobbins is turning  off the alert 
enter his  room and  steal the  wrench  and  the sandwich.  The wrench  is more 
important, doesn't matter if you don't get the sandwich.

   !!!!!!! Attention please !!!!!!!

If  this  doesn't work  out for  you  because  Hobbins gets  back too  fast and 
displaces you even  before you could  get the wrench do the following:  step on  
the lift  and set  the game  speed to  the  sloooooooowest  possible  and  this 
shouldn't be much a problem.

   !!!!!!! Attention please !!!!!!!

Now go back  to the broken  robot that's standing  there and  is waiting  to be 
repaired. Try to repair it with the wrench.  This doesn't work  out quite well, 
so ask Hobbins 'what's up with the robo?' (in Foster's wors). First you have to 
talk a lot about escaping and so,  thats also interesting, so the last question 
will be about the robot and he tells you what the problem is, make sure you get 
it all, and then ask Joey if he can help you repair the robot.

Now everthing works as it should and the robot starts bringing barrels. I don't 
WANT to know whats inside these barrels.  Well, the robot puts them on the lift 
and the lift carries them down.
At the very moment  the lift is down Foster  can slide down the liftbar (right-
click on the hole!)

Try to open the door and  stuffing stuff  in the slot.  After finding out, that 
this doesn't work, ask Joey for help (once again).
Now Officer Reich enters the room and wants to kill you,  because he thinks you 
are Overmann. But LINC (the camera) prevents him from  killing you in a radical 
manner.  Thank you LINC. Before you  continue your quest search  the corpse for 
the sunglasses and Reich's ID-Card. Take both with you and hurry on.

 Finally escaped from the recycling plant

Go one screen farther right. Here you'll find the Elevator, that isn't working,
a way to a  wrecked helicopter  that got nothing  for you besides some informa-
tions, so enter the factory.

Here you can brabble at the woman,  after that she will be  displaced by Super-
visor Lamb and Lamb will throw you out. Now leave the screen for once and enter 
back in.
Now you can talk to Lamb and he will throw you out again.  Now wait outside and 
you should  be able  to talk  to the  woman without  getting thrown  out or her 
getting displaced.

Now throw yourself  out and meet Lamb in front of the factory.  You can talk to 
him but that's not that productive,  so you better enter the  factory again and 
go one screen farther.  Try to get into the storage room.  Doesn't work, so ask 
Joey to get in. He will find a fusebox. Well done Joey, for this you will get a 
new shell. Now stuff the wrench into the gearwheels (that are very deep between 
the meachnic and the door) and take back the wrench.

Go to the welding robot where Anita was working before. Use the wrench with the 
robot and then ask Joey if he wants a new shell.

Go to  the entrance  to the storeroom  and send  Joey in again  to turn off the 
fuses. You can watch it all through the window :)
After Joey burnt the fuses you can enter the storeroom. Now kick the gateway to 
get to the stuff on the other side of it.  Just click it  to kick it.  Take the 
WD40, and the key. Under the gateway is a putty, Take this too.
As you step  out you'll be  reliefed of the sunglasses,  the WD40,  the key and 
eventually (if you got it) the sandwich. Darn!
At leas you got  the piece of wax.  Let Joey examine it!  It's a plastic explo-

Now leave  he factory  and as far left as you can.  Pass the guard and  farther 
left, there  is the door  we want to enter.  The old man on  his  chair doesn't 
matter (as always), try to push one of the buttons on the machine on the right. 
This doesn't work, because the are held back by some mechanism. With the wrench 
you can get rid of these locks.
So ask Joey if he perhaps wants to push  the button on the right. As he does it 
(and as you are not standing in his way)  it's now your turn to push the button 
on the left. The old man will now leave the room and you can take the bulb with 
you (switch  off the  switch before!!!)  Leave the switch  this way and use the 
plastic explosives in that place the bulb was. Now switch on the switch and the 
cage will be blown open and you are able to regulate the energy.  Use the right 
switch and  then leave the  left one as it is  and go to  the elevator  on this 
Do you see the red cable  on he right side of  the screen?  Ask Joey if he's in 
the mood for welding. So let him weld the cable.
Open the elevator with your (?) ID Card  and enter the elevator.  Watch out for 
Joey, he sometimes misses the Elevator.

 Down one floor

So take the cable with you.
Leave the screen to the left and take the way to the back. Here you use the ID-
Card with the Lock next to the left door.
Enter Reichs  appartement and stalk in.  Use the pillow and  take the magazines 
with you.

Step outside and wait for Lamb. He sometimes walks on by.  Ask him who repaired 
the elevator?  After talking  to Lamb get back  on the track  that's connecting 
everything  in this level and  walk to  the very right.  Enter  into the Travel 
Angency called TravelCo.  Talk to the man behind his  desk and ask him politely 
for tickets.  He  won't give  you any,  the are  waiting list and  other stupid 
stuff. But look at him, yes, you're right, how clever you are, you saw on first 
sight,  that  he's a  biker,  so give  him  the  biker  magazine  from  Reich's 
appartement. He will give you the tickets at once.


Use the elevator to  get back up again and wait for Lamb.  Give him the tickets 
you just got from the Tavel agent.
He will invite you to a fantastic event, to the thing you have been waiting for 
all your life, you will pay a visit to his factory. Yeeehah!
So get in the factory and wait for him.

After he told you everything you need to know you can  finally go past the jerk 
and see Anita again. Talk to her and after some talking she will be a nice girl 
and upload her jammer to your ID Card. You only have to give it to her. You can 
get some more useful information from her if you want to.

After you're  done with talking to Anita  get out of the factory and use the ID 
Card with the LINC Terminal.

As you can bypass the Retinascan in the  LINC Terminal you should make a profit 
of that opputunity.  So use the LINC Terminal and log in to Option 4 - Security 
Service.  After the sucessfully  passed  retina Scan  choose number 2 - Special 
Operations and then go to 1 - file adjustments.
Hehe,  now you can degrade Lamb to a D-LINC,  just press 1 and 2 to degrade his 
LINC Status and clear his bank account. Easy and funny, eh?
Now exit the terminal ad wait for Lamb in front of his pipe factory and talk to 
him about the Tour. So he'll send you to his friend Anchor to get an insurance. 
Wait until he tries to use the elevator and talk to him again. He has a serious 
problem, because  he can't use the elevator his Cous Cous might die, and as you 
are a nice person you will look for her, won't you.
So get down one level.

 Down one level again

So get to Lamb's appartement.  It's the one next  to Reich's where  you got the 
So take the Video Cassette and get t into the Video Recorder. So you can have a 
close look at Lamb's Pussies on Parade.  Alright, so do  what you are here for, 
feed the cat if you want to, you can do so, by using he machine.

Now pay a visit to Anchor.  He's the insurance guy,  he's not as hyperactive as 
Stan from the Monkey Island  series but he's a good replacement.  His office is 
next to the Travelagency on right on the second level.
Talk with him  about the  Schriebmann-Port.  He will advice  you to Dr. Burke's 

So go to Dr. Burke's surgery,  it's on the left end of this level.  When you're 
there talk to the hololady.  To do so activate the projector. Uh, she won't let 
you in, so ask  Joey to talk  to the  Hololady that  she should open the damned 
door, so when  Joey wants to know what to say use the last option.  Now you can 
enter and talk to the doctor.
He wants  some of your organs  in an  exchange for  an Schriebman-Port.  So try 
giving him the first 2.  You are too healthy for him,  so try the least and the 
last option, if you only were a robot,  than you had no problems  in trading in 
your nuts.  So finally you get your Schriebman-Port.  After this operation talk 
to the Doc  again and tell  him you  need to get on the  ground floor.  He will 
advice you to anchor again. So let's check that out.

Ask him about his special policy.  Of course he wants  to know who send you, so 
tell him who send you. After that Anchor will look somewhere in the back of his 
office. In that time  ask Joey  to weld  away the Anchor  from Anchor's statue.
Take the Anchor  from Anchor with you.  When Anchor returns before  you got the 
Anchor from Anchor ask him again about  the special policy and try again to get 
Anchor from Anchor while anchor is away. 

Okay, so you  finally got the Anchor  (from Anchor).  Get back to the Recycling 
plant with it. Get up the stairs you once fled from Reich to and enter the fire 
exit. Out there  use the Anchor  you stole from Anchor with  the cable and thow 
this to the sign  on the opposite side of the gap. Ta ta tata, Indiana Jones is 
nothing against Foster.

You see  the lockers in the back?  One of them is  Reich's and you  can open it 
with his ID-Card, but there is nothing useful in there so go into the next room 
and enter the  Cyberspace there.  You do so  by using your  ID-Card in the Slot 
next  to  the  interface and  then take a relaxed  seat on  the  chair  for the 


Now it's getting really cool!

So take a  look at  what you got,  so drag the  mouse to the  upper end  of the 
screen and the Cyberspace menue will drop down.

There you have a lot of Symbols,  to find out, what they are all about , have a
close look at section    viii - LINC Space   there you'll get  all the Info you 
need. By now I'll assume,  that you have red that chapter  or you know your way 
around LINC Space, it's not that difficult.

At first you pick up the ball, thats lying  around there,  it's some compressed 
Data.  Now continue to the right.  Use the open  order to  open the Carpet bag.
Pick up the magnifying glass and the Birthday Surprise.

Now enter  the next  room.  Here you  must use  the decompress  routine  on the 
compressed Data  to get two Passwords out of it.  Here you use the Passwords to 
puzzle around and then continue.

Hey ho, let's go:

There are 9 Password nodes there,  I'll give them numbers from 1-9 when looking 
from top on it.

     3   6   9
     2   5   8

     1   4   7

The nodes 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 have a  ying yangish Symbol on them on which you can 
deposit your Passwords. Of course you first  have to collect your Password gain 
before you can use it again somewhere else. So let's get it on. 

PLEASE don't read what's coming up now,  I just included  it for completism but 
it's a thousand times more fun to solve this by yourself.!

-green on 1

-red on 4

-green on 2

-red on 5
-green on 7

that's it for this  funny interesting riddle,  now enter the next room and take 
the bust and the book with you.
Now use the  decryption  Programm  for decryption the  three Text  document you 
collected  and now  log out,  before your provider  sends you  your phone bill.
Have you noticed how  I avoided to mention a  provider by name. The golden days 
without Popup ads...

So,  log out  and  use the  LINC Terminal  right  there on  the right.  Use the 
Security Service (option 4)  and read the encrypted documents.  You'll find out 
about your real background. Now enter the special operations and use the second 
option to load special privileges on your ID Card.

So leave  the Police Station  now and  head for  the ground floor,  use the two 
elevators,  the one on the second floor  is in front of the  junktion to Lamb's 
and Reich's appartements.

 Finally on ground level

Once you  reach  the  ground level  Joey will  do a  good Job  as a  basejumper 
without a parachute.  Crash boom bang, now he's broken  and you get his Circuit 
board and need to find a new shell for him.

Walk to the  left and talk to the  Doorman to the club St. James.  He will tell 
you, that you need a reputation to join the club.
So talk to Mrs. Piermont,  she's the old  lady that is  walking around with her 
dog. Talk to her about  Overman and then  about her  sponsoring your membership 
for the club. She wants to meet you in her appartement so ring the bell and say 
Robert is here and then enter her appartement.
Talk to the old lady and  sooner  or later she will phone the club.  That takes 
some time, so long you can put the  Video Cassette into  the Video recorder and 
her dog will be attracted by the cat.  While the dog is away from his place you 
can steal some of his dog biscuits. Now leave.

Get back to the Club, but make sure you  take the southern path.  You will come 
to a little hatch  with a closed door.  Take a closer look at the door by left-
clicking it. Now the lock of the door also shows up. Youcan crack the lock with 
your ID-Card. An old trick, but it still works in a fictional future.
Enter the hatch and pick up the secateurs.
Leave  the hatch  and finally  go to  the club you should be able to enter now.

 Splash the dog

So we are inside the club now,  so go to the door right of the band and look at 
the lock next to the door.  Talk to anyone about anything and then leave again.

Go to the elevator and put  the dogbiscuits on the plank next to the pond. Wait 
until the  dog is near  the biscuits  and then pull he rope.  This funny action 
distracts the guard and you can now enter the cathedral.

The door on the right lead to a ventilation shaft looking like this:


In there take the midde door and you enter the  Krypta or however this thing is 
called. Open the lockers in there and in the middle locker you will find Anita. 
She died because  Lamb exposed  her to the radiation.  Get up to  the top floor 
again.  Lamb says he doesn't  know a  thing about it,  so what  can you do, you 
can't kill him just for that, can you?

So enter the pipe factory and go to the room before the ractor. Open the locker 
in the middle and put on the protection overall. Now you can enter the reactor. 
Use the terminal and open the reactor door (by using option 2 dummy). Now enter 
the real reactor and  look out for a LINC-Card.  After picking it  up leave, if 
you are responsible  in what  you do close  the reactor door  again then put on 
your own coat again.

 LINCspace'd again

Now head for the police station and go down to the LINC Node. This time you use 
Anita's  ID-Card for  logging in.  Now you got some  different  things  in your 

Go to the second room and use the  Blind file on the eyeball and enter the door 
he's guarding very fast. If you don't get it set the game speed to veeeeeeeeery 
slow. At the crusader just go up in the door you can enter.
There you use the playback function from your inventory on the well. Anita left 
a message before her death to you. She tell you to contact Eduardo and get into 
the old subway system beneath the city  and this is the only way to enter LINCs 
secret base.

Okay,  so get back into the  first room you always  start your  journey through 
LINC-Space and set the gamespeed to veeeeeeery slow and blind the eyeball there
and head back to  the room with the  well you  just watched  Anitas message and 
continue one door farther and pick up the tuning fork quick, before the eyeball 
deblinds. After picking this thing up get out of the LINC Space and get down to 
the ground level.                                                        [.LS.]
But you don't have to pick up the tuning fork and can pick it up later.


On the ground  level go to the right  to the two guys in front of Mrs. Piermont 
appartement.  Talk  to  the  gardener  about  everything,  then talk to the boy 
playing  videogames  about  everything  possible  and then talk to the gardener 
again about  the flowers!  An then about Anita and so on until he's got nothing 
more to say and comes out as Eduardo, Anita's contact.

Now you  have to check out the courtroom  next to the club's entrance and watch 
what you have done hehehe.

 Inside the Club

So you are in that bar again and the band is gone.  Whatelse should you do than 
turn on the Jukebox. By the way, the title above this section has nothing to do 
or is in any way affiliated with half a dollar!

You can choose between
"You search, but find nothing"...
"as cool as you"...

Choose "You search, but find nothing"...  and talk to Colston,  the Club owner. 
After some  time the song will get on his nerves  and he will kick the Jukebox. 
While he's away you  can steal  his glass,  that's  saturated  with his finger-
prints. Armed with the glass go to Dr. Burke.  Use the glass on him and he will 
explain to you how to replace your fingerprints with Colstons fingerprints. Now 
get back into the bar  and press your thumb on the metal plate next to the door 
at the end of the bar.


Step on the box under the grill and destroy it. Yeah, Rock 'n Roll. Now use the 
crowbar  on the big box,  called packing case.  Rip off the wooden  lid and use 
this to strongen the box under the grill.  Now you can step  on the box without 
hurting you or the box.  Standing on the  box use the  crowbar  on the grill to 
make a  hole in it.  Now you can  use the secateurs  to completely  cut off the 
So climb into the subway.


Go to the right and there follow the junction and one screen farther you better 
save your game. 
Just for fun go on without doing anything.  You will see a  very cool animation 
for the graphics of these days ^_^.
Okay reload and then  put the bulb into the socket  in front of the hole.  This 
will keep the mutated monster away from you.  After the subway station there is 
a small tunnel  you just need  to click on the  exit and Foster  will run there 
without loosing his life but with a rush of adrenaline in his blood.

You will find yourself behind a blocked way and in front of some ugly pulsating 
veines on the wall. Smash your crowbar into the plaster and then again smash it 
into the now exposed bricks. Once again we use the Metal bar. Now smash it into 
the swelling in the veine. This doesn't do much of a harm so smash the brick on 
the crowbar. Hah, finallay the veine is bleeding,  so wait a second and a droid 
will come it's way and open up the door. So get in!

 LINCs secret base

Look through  the grill  and look  at that android.  Creepy isn't it.  Well, go 
through the  door leading  somewhere to  the back.  There is  an iris.  Use the 
controls unit to reduce the temperature. Set the gamespeed to veeeery slow (you 
know what  to do) and then  step on  the closed iris  and pull the handle. This 
loosens the grid above the iris.

Now leave this room  and continue to the right until you reach  the robot. Just 
stuff Joeys platine  into this robot and order  him to look  around and collect 

Talk with him about the infos he gatherd and talk about the nutrition tanks. So 
you find out, that the androids will die without the nutrition fluid.  Whatelse 
should you do, than order  Joey to open the tap and  let these bastards die and 
distract the android.
You should hear  a dripping sound,  wait some  time or  look through  the grill 
again to see if there is a little puddle.  When and only when there is a puddle 
you can enter the room with the android fetus.

After the android is  history you can cross the room  and leave it  somwhere in 
the back to another room with the cylindrical tanks. Only one door will let you 
leave here, it's the one in the back on the right.

Here you have  to use your ID-Card to enter the LINC Terminal.  Use option 2 to 
Access to  restricted Area and open the door  with the option 1.  Now leave the 
LINC Terminal and this room you are in.

Beacuse you openend the door the android can come in to beat Joey up. After the 
fight it's  your duty to take  Joey's Circuit  board with you.  You should also 
take a close look at the corpse that's left now. You gain another ID-Card. With 
this one get back to the controll  room and use Gallaghers  ID-Card on the slot 
on the LINC Node and enter the LINC-Space.


So blind the second Eyeball again and walk on by. You will come to the crusader 
one last time. Use the DIVINE WRATH on the crusader.  You find the Divine Wrath 
on Galaghers ID-Card. After the crusader is gone (with god) enter the room he's 

Now  you see  the small  DNA helix  rotating inside  the crystal.  Remember the 

Log out of the LINC space and log in again with Anitas ID-Card. She has got the 
Oszillator saved on her ID Card,  if  you  have  picked  up  the  Oszillator of 
If you haven't picked it up yet, go back to the last  LINC Space Chapter in the 
Walkthrough by pressing  Strg+F and search for [.LS.]  and do what is explained 
there with Galaghers ID Card. And then you do what comes next.

Blind the eyball  and move to the crystal again.  Use the Oszillator to destroy 
the crystal  around the Helix. So pick up the Helix. 

it looks like this:


The Helix is a Virus that Anita deposited there for you.  Log out now, there is 
nothing left to do in LINC-Space.

 Final dutys

finally leave the  controll room and enter  through the door you opened through 
the LINC terminal and enter the cryogenic freezer room.
Left of the door to the right are tongs you need. Take them with you please and 
enter the next room. Open the cabinet in the MIDDLE and put Joeys Circuit Board 
in  it and  then use the  Terminal next  to it.  Use the  option  2 -  Download 
Character Date and then option 3 - Run startup programm.
The  new Joey  will awake.  Sounds creepy,  eh? Well,  actually  it is  creepy, 
because Joey has turned into a complete jerk.
Walk  to the  next room  and ask  this Joey  Ken thing to  put his  hand on one 
sensor. Put your own hand on the other sensor simultaneously.  Don't care about 
Ken for  the moment  and continue your  way to the  newly opened door.  Tie the 
cable to  the pipe  support  and then you  have to  get back  to the  cryogenic 
laboratory again.

Use Anitas Id-Card  (with the Virus helix on it)  on the Terminal and crash the 
System. Now take a  tissue out of the tank  with the use of the tong and freeze 
it in  the  huge tank.  Now get back  to where  you tied the  rope  to the pipe 
support. Climb down the improvised ladder  and throw the tissue into the hungry 
orifice and poison it that way.  A secret door will open up and you better save 
right now for the last time.  Then you can do the Indiana Jones again and swing 
over to the door.

Now everything explains and is explained and you only need to ask Ken to take a 
seat as  your father it  thrown out by LINC.  Then this  adventure  finally has 
reached it's sad

Where can I get Beneath a Steel Sky?  My trusted Gamedealer doesn't have it for 
sale anymore!


Good thing to ask, the game  Beneath a Steel Sky Freeware since some time. This 
is because the nice guys from Revolution  Software gave the source code for the 
digital Theather engine Revolution used for Beneath a Steel Sky to the nice and 
busy guys at ScummVM and they wrote an emulator for Beneath a Steel Sky and the 
guys at Revolution are so nice they said, okay, it's freeware now, we want more 
people to play our old and ingenious games.
So this means that you can download the game  everywhere it is offered. And you 
don't even have to pay for this. Isn't this nice? I hope Lucas Arts' Management 
will do the same sooner or later!



That's  very interesting,  but you didn't  answer my question  I asked you, so, 
where can I get this game, goddammid?


Good thing to ask, here is a little selection of different providers and hosts:


This is Clems Site, with a lot of Beneath a Steel Sky related stuff and lots of 
other Beneath a Steel Sky stuff!




and the most important source:


        > http://www.scummvm.org/downloads.php <


At ScummVM you first have to download the ScummVM tool,  and then the rewritten 
version of the game. ScummVM is a rewrite of the original  Lucas Arts Scumm En-
gine for Windows XP or NT or 2000 (or even MAC, dunno) and with this nice litle 
tool you can play nice little  Games like Monkey Island  or Zak McKracken again 
on your superfast XP Computer. Isn't that's cool, eh!

Another interesting thing for  (ubuntu-)Linux Users  just arrived  in my inbox, 
send to me by Saborlas: 

For those who run Ubuntu Linux (a very user-friendly version of the open-source 
operating system),  BASS is  available to install quite easily,  as it's in the 
repositories.  You  just  open up  the  Applications  menu,  select  Add/Remove 
Programs, and the system checks the repos for software you can install over the 
internet.  BASS is in the Games section (although it's just the game data,  you 
still need to install SCUMMVM,  but you can do that in the same section).  
It's likely to take some time, as it's the full talkie version  of the game and 
it compiles  the  engine  from the  source code  (totally  automatically,  stop 
worrying!), but you do end up with a fully-featured version of the game running 
natively in Linux. Ubuntu is just awesome like that (try it out if you want, it 
dual-boots with Windows nicely).



Can I copy my old Savegame, I still saved from the original version of the game 
Beneath a Steel Sky  to my current  harddrive  and use  them with  the  ScummVM 
Version and play with them?


No, this doesn't work, these Filetypes are not compatible.

                                       |                                      |
                                       |  ...thanks to Wolfgang for this Info!|


Can I die in Benath a Steel Sky?


Oh yes,  there are multiple ways to die  in Beneath a Steel Sky,  here are some 
possible deaths in this game, no guarantee on completeness.

- walk down the stairs just at the beginning  of the game and you will get shot 
  by Stephen Reich.

- Stuff the plastic explosive  into the  place you  take the  bulb from without 
  switching off the power before!

- enter the police station and try  to use the  elevator without  cracking your 
  LINC ID Card.
- the bulb  again! Pass the  hole in the subway without putting the bulb in the 
- Be too slow  in the room  after the  Museum station  in the subway and a huge 
  Rock will fall on Fosters head.
- stay too long on the iris under the androids room in the LINC Basis.

- enter the androids room without unlocking the grid he will fall in.

- don't ask Joey to take your Fathers seat in the LINC room.



What other games do you write FAQs for?


A lot of games, if I have the time. I doubt I will ever finish this translation
but when you read this it means I did it and some other games will follow up. I 
once wanted to write for all  old classic Lucas Arts Games, but as it turn out, 
that I'm a  slow progressing perfectionist,  I might never finish this aim, but 
who knows  what the future brings.  I guess If you drop  me a line  on how much 
this FAQ helped you, YOU motivate me a lot!
And a motivated selmiak means  more guides on cool games filled with humor from 
the  dark  side  and  the obscure  and also  filled  with  lots of  informative 



So what do you want for this?


I want to see you dancing naked  on glowing coals  and hear your crying my name 
in a orgasmic manner!



Are you serious?


For Sure!



How long do you want  to  continue  writing  useless,  sensless  and  brainless 
questions in here?


Until you stop reading!



Hah, what do you do, if I stop reading?


You will never know if you don't continue reading!



Why are you so great, goodlooking and such a winner?


I'm so modest and shy, I don't want to answer!


Can I ask a serious question?


Yes, please, that's what I'm here for!


What other games did Revolution Software bring to life?


That's a good thing to ask,  besides Beneath a Steel Sky  they released Lure of 
the Temptress, In Cold Blood, and the Broken Sword 1-3 Series.



If I still have a question,  even though  this FAQ/Walkthrough  is so filled up 
with tons of informations, ... can I send you an email?


Sure, use Beneath a Steel Sky as a subject and send the mail to       
      faqs (at) gmx (dot) de     
and as content insert whatever is on your mind.  By the way, hatemails  will be 
printed and  used for amusement  of me and my guests  laid out in my toilet, it 
could be your letter, give it a shot!
Loveletters and  Fanmail is  only accepted  in connection with  meaningful nude 
pictures ;)

   |  x  |    LINC Codes

The original  floppy  disk  version  of Beneath  a Steel  Sky  included  a copy 
protection using Codes, which were subsequently removed in the CD-ROM versions. 
As a result  of Beneath  a Steel Sky  being freeware,  these codes  have become 
public domain.  When playing BASS  in ScummVM,  however,  these codes are never 
needed as ScummVM has permission to bypass the copy protection even in the disk 
But if you  still play the old  Version of  the game  and perhaps you lost your 
Codes this might be usefull for you.
So here we go, the LINC Codes are as follows:

    *  Amritah Cola Company:             704723
    *  Anchor Insurance:                 520228

    -  BULWARK ... what?

The word (?) Bulwark,  that is printed on  the key found  in the  pipefactory's 
storeroom is an anagram for:
War Klub or Bulkwar.

Foster  is called  Foster  because  the Australian  Tribe found  him  after the 
helicopter crash somewhere in the Gap next to a can of  Foster's the Australian 
Beer. So they decided to call him Robert Foster.


Warning!  This feature  might  crash  Beneath a Steel Sky;  the  safest  way to 
perform  this cheat  is if you  just started  the game and  enter the  debugger 
before you do any other action.

To enter the debugger, press CTRL-D. A text window will open.  Type "section 0"
and press enter. Type "exit" (and press enter) or hit ESC to exit the debugger.

now the screen should fade out and fade in in another location in the game

the following commands are available:

section 0 - on the fire escape, ready to enter the police hq
section 1 - after Foster escapes the furnace room
section 2 - Belle Vue
section 3 - ground level
section 4 - in the collapsing tunnel
section 5 - LINC
section 6 - final scene, Rob entering the council room

NOTE: these codes  weren't  accessible  in the  original  BASS game,  they were 
merely meant as helpers for the programmers of BASS.
If the game  should crash after  using the debugger,  please  DO NOT bother the 
ScummVM team. The information presented here is rather inofficial. 
                      ...thanx to Clem for this nice info. More from him on his 
                                     website mentioned in the thank you section


To enter the debugger, press CTRL-D.  A text window will open.  Type "showgrid"
and press enter. Type "exit" (and press enter) or hit ESC to exit the debugger.

now you should  see a  grid of  white boxes  on every screen,  roughly denoting 
where you can walk.

the interesting thing is that the programmers  also added  some secret messages 
(such as "HELLO!" or "TONY")

(to turn the grid off again,  just enter "showgrid"  once more  in the debugger

   |  xii  |    VERSIONS

                         Version 0.30   .   18.04.2004 

Well,  I  just  started  translating my  german  Beneath a steel Sky  FAQ  into
hopefully understandable english language.
So the Version  History section isn't that long after all.  Check out my german 
FAQ on GameFAQs.com and look at the history, to see what long way this document 
came ;)
Maybe some  updates will  follow up.  Maybe not.  Sometime I  find some glaring 
errors just as the file is posted.

                         Version 1.00   .   24.07.2005 

Tatata!  Finally done with the traslation.  It's only been over a year,  that I 
started. I hope the people  translating the new Harry Potter  are not that slow 
in progress.  All other  sections are  also included in  the translation.  This 
FAQ is done for now. 

                         Version 1.01   .   25.07.2005

fixed some smaller formatting errors.  I always find them just when the file is 
posted. Not before, always after. At least I take care of them ;)
Also corrected  some  spelling errors.  I don't think I  found them all, but at 
least I hope I have eliminated most of them!

                         Version 1.02   .   31.07.2005

Changed  a bit in the  controls section,  as it's  impossible  to have  the two 
Options Foster has, combined in one Mousebutton ;)

                         Version 1.10   .   02.08.2005

So I added the LINC Codes I found on the Wikipedia entry on Beneath a Steel Sky
as an own section and I hope that some might find them usefull!

                         Version 1.11   .   05.08.2005

more spellchecking  and some tweaks  and twats  here and  there.  You know, the 
usual stuff you do with such a small update.
Before I forget, I added another  (negative of the top one)  ASCII Image at the 
end of the FAQ. It looks great, don't you think?

                         Version 1.12   .   07.08.2005

corrected the  webaddresse  for the  Ascigenerator mentioned  in the  Thank you 

                         Version 1.20   .   09.08.2005

Finally added the ITEM LIST as Section vii!
added www.supercheats.com to the 'hosting permitted sites'

                         Version 1.21   .   10.10.2005

This Version is,  as the Number implies  just a minor update,  just some better 
ASCII-Art, some spelling errors eliminated and other small changes, that do not 
actually change the layout or the Solution much. You won't recognize it even if 
you would spend some 10 minutes on it! But now it looks better!

                         Version 1.30   .   05.11.2005

There is another  new thing in this FAQ now,  it's section number 11 or xi, and 
it's the Trivia section. Have a nice read there!

                         Version 1.31   .   03.24.2006

Some more (the last I hope) spelling errors eleminated!  Yes, I killed'em, sir, 
just as you wanted me to do!
added my website to the hosting sites, pay me a visit, drop me a line or just 
read on under   ...    www.selmiak.de.vu

                         Version 1.32   .   08.20.2008

Yes, YES! You better believe this, this guide still gets updates =]
Thanks  to Saborlas,  who did send  me a tipp on  where to get BASS  if you use 
ubuntu. You can install  it over the  internet very easy.  But now I spoiled it 
all.  You could also have  read this in the FAQs section.

   |  xiii  |    THANK YOUS

Thanks to Revolution Software,  you made a very good straight game, spiced with 
a very nice portion of humour, that I would like to see nowadays again.

Thanks to Gonzo Henning,  even if I don't  see you any  more today or  have any 
contact to you  (or that I do want contact to you) you showed me that game back 
in the  days and got  a copy from  a friend of a friend.  Those were some days. 
Thanks for that, I still like this Game you see!

Special  thanks  to   Dave  Gibbons,   mastermind  of  this  game's  Artdesign.
for more info it's best to look here:

Thanks to MBB  alias  Ludix  for  a lot of  stuff  and  corrections  and  other 

Thanks to Clem for explaining  the function of the  ScummVM tool to me,  and in 
that way to you too,  cuz I  used his explanation  in this guide.  I hope it is 
understandable,  because I  use my  own  words,  and I don't  know  much  about 
history, and biology, and at least about informatics.

information about Beneath a Steel Sky.
