Kon (Kon_solution.txt)

KON (Anthony P. Hamilton 1987)

NOTES:
You start with a strength of 100.
When you are fighting or being attacked by other characters and the message 'You feel week
[sic!]' appears (when your strength is below 30), you have to eat something to restore your
strength. Besides the groceries you can find (some food, bread, meat, fruit, egg, apple), due to the
bug reported by A. Hamilton you can also eat other items if you won't need them anymore (chest,
stone, bottle, key, brick). The 'eat' commands in the solution are recommendations and
therefore set in brackets, since the moment when you need to eat depends on the damage you take
during fights or attacks (the amount is a random element).
There are 4 characters you have to kill:
1. The dragon (to get the key for the chest)
2. The King (to continue in your mission)
3. The genie in the bottle (to get the gem for the nixie who will give you a password)
4. The green slime (to reach the cave with the glowing carrot)

Another random element is the appearance of the prisoner; you need his help to open the cave in the
room with the two levers on the wall in order to get the apple - so if no prisoner is available, you
can't get the apple.
