I did figure out how to get out of the exitless room.

Thanks for the second hint.

I'll write again. Soon, I bet.

I have finished.

Interesting game. Lots of mazes to map. Some illogical puzzles. Who would have thought to wave a wand in a garden? But interesting, nevertheless.

:? Hi I have followed the solution to Ebony tower as far as i can, but i cant seem to climb the stairs. I say climb stairs, it say OK, and i'm still in the same place in the courtyard. Is this a mistake in the downloaded game? Or am i missing something? Thanks

Are you following the walkthrough word for word from the start? If you are, I might have to re-test it. Maybe some error crept in while writing it.

I can't find Juan's solution to the BBC game Ebony Tower. Is it somewhere?

Never mind. I found it and am trying out the solution. Although the game is titles "ebony Tower" the solution is Escape from Ebony Tower.

A small error: After lighting the torch the first time, you need to go east before you can get the seed.

I am as far as getting the flute. I think I needed to insert another "EAST" before turning the light on. I am in the house, but cannot seem to get the book.

Since I can't locate my notes, I'll need some help here.

Yes, that is missing. Will correct it.

Another mistake has crept in here. The book is in the caves, not the house. Somehow I confused the directions for getting there and placed the ones that end up in the house. So this is the correction:

Get flute, E, S, E, E, E, W, W, S, S (now you are in the caves and can continue with the walkthrough as written)

It must be. I just went through that part of the walkthrough and it works just fine. By climbing the stairs and turning on the light you end up in the guardroom. From there you go to the trapdoor etc. (as in the walkthrough.) You probably need to get a good copy of the game.

If you find any more problems/mistakes in the walkthrough, let me know.
