NOT A PENNY MORE NOT A PENNY LESS
Domark (based on the book by Jeffrey Archer)
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Amstrad Version)


Scenario
You are Stephen Bradley, an American academic working at Oxford University.  You 
have discovered that you have been swindled out of $250,000.  You bought shares 
in an oil company which then failed, leaving you with worthless shares.  Harvey 
Metcalfe, the villain whose share you bought at an artificially boosted price, 
is laughing all the way to is Swiss bank.  The police regret that they will be 
unable to nail him or recover your money.  
You are determined to get your money back, by fair means or foul, but you need 
help.

Notes
1. There is no inventory - items once taken cannot be dropped.
2. F1 - Repeat last command.
3. F5/7 - Speech on/off.
4. F4 - Graphics off (necessary if playing under Amstrad emulation to counter 
the flicker).
5. It is necessary to EXAMINE ... (name) of people to get to see them.
6. You need to type GO N, GO S, GO E, GO W.   GO NORTHWEST etc. must be typed in 
full.
