The Stolen Lamp

By Dave E & Paul Davies

Originally published in EUG #57

An inaccurate solution originally appeared in Electron User 5. 9 and was contributed by Paul Davies. Important commands had been omitted with the result that the game could not be completed. This new solution enables you to complete the game and is probably how the original was meant to read before it was transcribed.

We've added the illustrations from the game too - because this game is one of the few text adventures to feature them!
