The Impossible Bottle (walkthrough.txt)

Walkthrough of The Impossible Bottle

The following is a relatively short path through the game. Actions may seem
arbitrary here, but they are clued in the game, so remember to walk around and
examine everything.

The game also has a HINT command.

Some NPC encounters are randomly timed. Because of this, the walkthrough will
occasionally Z (wait) a lot, and use GO TO and FIND for navigation. When playing
interactively, compass directions work just as well.

The stegosaurus will occasionally knock random objects down. If something in the
walkthrough doesn't work, you will most likely have to return to your room
and put something back in the proper place in the dollhouse.
