Welcome to Space Quest ][. A very old adventure game by Sierra. 
It was one of the last games to be created with the AGI interpreter that 
Sierra has been using for years. The game should therefore work perfectly 
with ScummVM, and the DOS version also works fine with DosBox. 
When it comes to obtaining this game legally, please note that if you can 
find it for free, then you're probably dealign with an illegal version. 
Abandonware is not a legal concept, so if you find this game downloadable 
on an abandonware site, I deem it very likely you'll have a pirated copy. 
I must warn you also about the fact that Sierra was infamous for their 
nummerous amounts of deaths or situations in which the game will never be 
finishable. This game is one of the worst when it comes to that 
I shall warn you as much as I can for any of such situations whenever they 
can happen. And of course, there's the death list at the bottom of this 
This game can be devided in chapters (though not officially nummered as 
such), at the start of each new chapter I'll note what you MUST have done 
or have in your inventory as you will be unable to finish the game 
In usage of this FAQ 
*:> This way I'll note you are in a new location 
    = And this way I'll summarize what to do 
Xenon Oribital Station 4 
*:> Space 
     You start the game outside sweeping the decks of XOS4. You'll lose 
    your broom, but don't even think about getting after it as you'll only 
    get yourself killed in the process. 
    = You can walk over the wall and ceiling (this is space after all), so 
      make your way to the ceiling

    = Step onto the elevator path 
    = Step in the tube 
*:> Shuttle Bay 
    = Enter the spaceship 
You'll get kidnapped now. Sit out the scenario until you crash on an alien 
You'll wake up in a jungle, and you gotta survive here. This is harder then 
you think as nearly all plants and animals here, will eat you alive if you 
give them the chance to.

    = Order form 
    = Supporter 
    = Dialect translator 
    = Puzzle 
*:> Crash Site 
    = Search the guy you crashed upon to find a keycard. Do it now, this is

    = GET SPORE (watch out not to get too close, as the spores are very 
    = Exit North 
*:> Slime beast maze 
    = Make your way through the maze to the bush in the back. Watch uut as 
      soon as you touch any trail the slime monster will eat you. (best is 
      to set the game in the slowest speed setting) 
    = Get the berries from the bush (GET BERRIES) 
    = Make your way back.

      berries make you taste bad, the monster will spit you out, and thus 
      you survive.

    = GET ROPE 
    = Exit North

    will appear and kill you) 
*:> Gorge 
    = GET ON LOG 
*:> Monster gap   
    = Go to the end of the rope 
    = SWING 
    = Now (this is terrible, so save a lot) wait awhile until you think you 
      can make the jump to the cave and then press F6. This is pretty 
      precise so expect a lot of failed attempts leading into your death. 
    = Enter the cave 
Little Aliens 
Before you move on make sure you have: 
    = Supporter 
    = Glowing Gem 
    = Whistle 
    = Dialect translator 
    = Keycard 
    = Puzzle 
If you miss any of these, you cannot finish the game anymore, nor can you 
get back to claim them, so in other words you're doomed. You must also have 
saved the trapped alien before, or you'll be doomed as well.

Before you move on make sure you have: 
    = Supporter 
    = Glowing Gem 
    = Whistle 
    = Keycard 
    = Puzzle  
If you miss any of these, you cannot finish the game anymore, nor can you 
get back to claim them, so in other words you're doomed. 
You are down in a dark cave and you cannot see anything at all. 
*:> Dark Caves 
     I'm just gonna point you the quickest way out. Please note if you take 
    too long a monster in this cave will eat you alive, so be quick.

      a jungle... again.

    = Exit East

Eventually Vohaul will appear on your screen and take over the control of 
your ship and send it straight to his fortress 
Vohaul's Fortress 
No way back.  
Fortunately, there's nothing that needs to be done before getting here 
which would make you otherwise get stuck. 
None of the items you currently have are required to finish the game as you 
all used them before and you don't need to use them again. 
Now note, everything is against you. There are a lot of robots here that 
kill you on sight. Oh yeah, if you ever get yourself kissed, load an older 
savegame as you're doomed if that happens. 
*:> Bay 
    = Exit East   
*:> = Enter the elevator   
    = FIVE 
*:> 5th floor 
     WARNING! The kissing monster is here. If it ever kisses you, you can 
    no longer finish the game (as you'll later in the game get yourself ill 
    and die). 
    = exit East x2 
    = Go through the door you just opened to find yourself in a janitorial 
    = GET OVERALLS (you'll toss them away and something falls out of it)

*:> = Enter the elevator 
    = FOUR 
*:> 4th floor 
     WARNING! When the cleaning robot comes, run away and hide in either an 
    open closet or the elevator. If it touches you you're dead. When it 
    leaves,  you're safe to return to your original spot. 
    = Exit East

*:> Bay 
    = Go back to the ship 
    = Exit South

    = Type "STICK PLUNGER ON BARRIER" but don't hit enter yet. 
    = Try to walk both east or right and you'll get yourself trapped 
    = An acid trap opens under your feet. Wait awhile until you really 
      cannot get out any more 
    = Now hit enter to get yourself saved. (If you do this too soon, you'll 
      sooner or later release grip due to exhaustion getting yourself still 
    = Wait until the acid pit closes 
    = STAND 
     The trap will open up again 
     The sprinklers will start to work killing the killer robots in this 
    = Exit East x2 
*:> Vohaul's room 
    = Try to approach Vohaul and he'll shrink you and put you in a glass. 
*:> Glass 
*:> Inside Vohaul's life support system 
    = Go to the vent 
    = CLIMB (oddly enough "CLIMB VENT" is not understood). 
*:> Glass 
    = Exit West 
*:> Computer 
    = TYPE ENLARGE (yeah that word "TYPE" is required) 
    = Exit East 
*:> Glass 
    = Stand in the beam and you'll be in Volhaul's room at normal size 
*:> Vohaul's room 
    = (If you want you can search Vohaul to find the latters SHSR. It's 
      unclear what this means). 
    = Make your way upstairs 
*:> Tube corridor 
    = WEAR MASK 
    = Follow the tube (when it breaks your mask protects you) and exit the 
      tube at the end 
The grand finale 
Vohaul is dead, but you now need to escape. There is a time limit, and if 
you exceed it you'll die. If you get followed by a robot, just walk away in 
the other direction and if you keep following the way you'll eventually get 
back where you are. This FAQ assumes this all goes correct in one go, but 
you never know. 
Oh yeah, you may want to turn off the sound as the alarm won't stop for the 
remainder of the game. 
*:> Corridor 
    = Type "PRESS BUTTON" but don't hit enter yet 
    = Exit West until you see some doors and a killer droid 
*:> Escape pods 
     I hope this goes one in one go. 
    = Go to the closest door 
    = Hit enter to open the door to the pod 
    = The killer droid will now follow you, exit East 
*:> = Keep exitting East until you are back at this very spot 
*:> = Go to the pod you opened 
    = ENTER POD 
*:> Escape Pod 
    = LOOK 
The game ends here. 
I know this is a bit of an odd ending, but this is really the end. 
I can tell you that in Space Quest III you'll still be in this pod and 
there you'll see how this voyage will end. 
In other words, see you back in Space Quest III.

Contacting me 
First and most of all, DON'T try to e-mail me. E-mail addresses shown in 
public are always only shown because some websites require me to and which 
are as a result of that overflooded with spam and therefore never dug 
through. In other words, your mail will very likely NEVER be seen at all! 
Some websites have an internal personal message system. GameFAQs has that 
system for example. Problem is I only visit GameFAQs to host my FAQs 
because they are the biggest medium for FAQs and when I got nothing to 
upload, you'll hardly see me there, so your messages there will also very 
likely not reach me at all. When you see this FAQ on sites other than my 
own or GameFAQs, it's very likely I don't even know it's hosted there, and 
due to the Creative Commons license, hey I don't even have to know 🙂 
So, if you have any questions or remarks regarding my FAQs, please go to my 
own FAQ site at: and make your comment or your question 
right there. When you post there, I will always know immediately and very 
likely I will answer in only a few days, if you are lucky even the same 
Oh yeah not to sound arrogant or anything, but I'll give you a glimpse of 
some mails/comments/spam I received in the past on my FAQs and those are 
the kind of messages that will most likely not get answered. Here I give 
you my reply at forehand! 
*:> Not to be rude but you know NOTHING about this game? 
    = Not to be rude, but you write NOTHING I have to know about this game. 
    = I also need you to know that most games I wrote FAQs on have been 
      played over and over about 20 times or more, and games I played less, 
      will very likely get a FAQ update after another 10 or 20 
      playthroughs. How many FAQ writers can say the same? (No, I'm not 
      being arrogant. I'm just an idiot for doing that, but I like doing 
      that) 😛 
*:> You did not cover even half you should cover 
    = Then give me the other half 
*:> Me gustan tus FAQs 
    = Yo no comprendo 
    = In other words only send your mails in English or Dutch. Those are 
      the only two languages I know good enough to have a conversation in. 
*:> Fix your English 
    = Be glad I write in English. If I spoke my own language you may not be 
      able to understand me, at all. 
*:> Hey idiot, fix your FAQ! 
    = Hey idiot, fix your manners! 
*:> I got the best viagra for sale 
    = If I would ever need that stuff you will NOT be the one I'd buy it 
*:> Your stories about how copyrights work are incorrect 
    = Obviously unlike you, I've read all proper documentation about that 
      subject and even spoken with the guys who actually deal with stuff 
      for a living. I'm not claiming to be an expert but I told you what I 
      know and also what I needed to know for my other activities outside 
      of FAQ writing. 
    = Perhaps this is interesting: 
      (This is the UK version of the document, but copyright is an 
      internationally set up phenomenon, and the core of the copyright 
      rules are the same in all countries in which the copyrights are part 
      of the law). 
*:> You SUCK in levelling up (I often hear that about my RPG FAQs) 
    = You need to cheat your way through a game by grinding? 
*:> I simply LOVE your FAQs. Thanks a lot. 
    = You're welcome. I'm glad they were helpful 😉
