When Alex Didn't Do It Complete Walkthrough

August 14, 2015

SPOILER ALERT! As promised in earlier posts - here's a complete walkthrough of my ZX Spectrum Graphic Adventure When Alex Didn't Do It. If you haven't played it yet and want to, the full game comprising three standalone 48k parts is available on the downloads page of this website. The game has been tested in emulator and on real ZX Spectrums.

 

Using it on a Vega - I'm yet to have a go on one - would involve putting it on an SD card and using the virtual keyboard.

 

There are quick commands e.g. EX, INV, N, E,S, W which should help in that area.

 

 

 

Anyway - to the walkthrough:
