Andy Capp by Mirrorsoft

Synopsis:

It's Monday morning and Flo's demanding your dole cheque. If you're as big a skiver as Andy Capp, you've got a real problem on your hands! You'll need every ounce of your Northern charm to find out who has made off with it. Extracting helpful information from your friends will take a drop of Dutch courage (but neither of the pubs will give you credit). You'll have to use whatever's left over from the last dole cheque to buy a paper, check the racing pages, and slide off to the bookies hoping for a winner.

Original Instructions

Note: Many of these instructions have been OCRed and may not have been proofread, as a result spelling errors, broken English and grammar are likely.

PLAYING THE GAME

To move Andy around the town, use left and right movement controls. Actions are performed using the four icons at the bottom of the screen. These are accessed by pressing FIRE, highlighting the appropriate icon using the left and right controls, then pressing FIRE again.

From left to right the four icons are:

WALLET : For moving money in and out of your pocket and for buying items when possible.

SPEAK : For general conversation and questioning characters during the game.

FIGHT : Sometimes getting into a scrap is the only way to get yourself out of a sticky situation.

ACTION : For examining and using objects and displaying the game options. Choose from the game options by moving the highlight up and down, then pressing FIRE.

You can blow kisses at characters by using the down control - they'll be so stunned, they'll stop dead in their tracks and you can make your get- away.

To turn a corner or enter a building, turn to face it and press up.

To talk or fight with a character you must be touching them (unless they're static characters).

HINTS

* Keep your alcometer topped up - the necessary is available from you-know-where, but only during opening hours.
* Steer clear of the policeman - you're on the wanted list.
* If you fancy a flutter, remember you don't only get tips from the inlay card.
* If you get involved in a fight, watch you don't lose your wallet.
* After all, if things get desperate, you could always get a job.
