REALITY HACKER
Written by Jason Hewson (O'Sheen Software)
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (Spectrum Version)

Scenario
You are a computer genius called Tim whose parents go out to the pub and you decide to hack into the
bank computer and add a few noughts to the end of your account. But, before you do this you must
first find the access code that is hidden in the "Reality Inc." building and to reach this
place you must sneak out of your house without being caught by your granny.

Notes
1. Apart for EXAMINE for EXAMINE, do not appreciate words.
2. Thanks to Donald Hay for the information on Part 2.

SCORE 100/100

PART TWO
This second part is a hacking simulator and is not in standard adventure format. It is, therefore,
difficult to give useful hints other than a few general guidelines as to how to go about playing
this part. Write down all the information you are given as you hack into each business, as seemingly
useless facts may prove useful later on in the game. The businesses in this part use a priority
system to classify the security of each company. For example, Priority 1 consists of businesses
which only have a telephone number and no entrance codes or departments and these will be the ones
you access first. From these you will find the numbers and entrance codes for Priority 2, etc. 

Below is a list of the priorities (1 = easiest and 5 = hardest to access). 
* PRIORITY 1: Single screen with telephone number access (no entrance codes or departments).
* PRIORITY 2: Single screen with telephone number and entrance code.
* PRIORITY 3: Telephone number, entrance code and 3 departments without codes.
* PRIORITY 4: Telephone number, entrance code and 3 departments with codes.
* PRIORITY 5: Same as PRIORITY 4 but with harder clues.

Look beyond this part for the codes.
Use the 'News' facility to find helpful starting codes and numbers.
Use the 'Directory' function to find town codes if you are not given them, eg. Harlow
59761 requires the dialling code for Harlow as a 'prefix' to the number.
Try things out as codes and numbers, however ludicrous they seem (I have it on good authority that
the author is a complete looney!)
