You begin the game sweeping the outer decks of your space ship.
As you are doing your chores, you will hear a sound emitting from your
watch. When this happens, look at your watch and press the button
marked 'C' on your watch. Your superior will order you to clean the
just-arrived spaceship. You may press the other buttons marked 'H' and
'T', but you will not get points for them. They tell you the [T]ime
and your [H]oroscope. Now, press F10 to stop looking at the watch.
Now, walk up the walls (Yes, you can walk on the walls) and situate
yourself in the circle on the ceiling. You will be whisked away inside
the space ship. When inside the space quest, you will go through the
process of decontamination. It only takes a second or two. On the back
wall, you will see an empty hanger. Walk up to it and change your
suit. Open your locker and take the puzzle and the supporter. Now
you're all set. Walk through the door on the left wall.
One of the men will approach you and tell you get your ass over
to the space ship. On the base of the left wall, you will see a little
platform. Walk on the platform and it will carry you to the level
above you. Walk in the small opening in the tube and you will be
whisked away to another room.Leave the tube and enter the space ship.
As you are disgusted by the smell of the space ship, you are abducted
by Vohol's men. Vohol will explain his plans to get revenge from what
happened to him in Space Quest I. After his long and winding speech,
he will board you on a spaceship destined to a nearby planet to
perform labor work in his mines. After landing on the planet, his men
will attempt to escort you to the mines, but the hovercraft runs out
of fuel and crashes to the earth. Luckily, you survive the crash, but
Vohol's men encounter death, most likely approaching the gates of
hell. Search the dead body lying on the ground and retrieve the
keycard from him. Examine the wreckage and you will notice a peculiar
button. Press the button and the beeping from the hovercraft will
stop. It is advisable to watch out where you are walking around the
crash since there is a pit that you will fall into. Its located on the
right hand side of the screen.
Make your way behind the large tree in the back of the screen and
move up. You will then appear in another part of the woods, however,
Vohol's men are on the lookout for you, so you must hide here. Hide
behind one of the bushes on the right hand side of the screen until
you cannot see yourself. Wait awhile until one of Vohol's men appears
in a hovercraft searching for you. If you in an adequate hiding place,
the man will leave and search for you in another place. Now, come out
of your hiding place and go to the bottom-right corner of the screen
and go right. You will see a small being tied to a rope. Being
patriotic, you must untie him and he will run away into the bush. Go
to the bottom-left corner and go left. When you are back at clearing
with the two large trees (Where you were hiding), go left and approach
the top-left corner and go up. If you find the right path, you will
see a huge plant-like organism with some pulsating fuzzies in them
middle of it. On the other side of the plant is are some berries.
Being careful not to touch ANY of the roots of the plant, you
must make your way through the roots until you make it to the other
side. Now, collect some berries, and make your way back through the
maze of roots. Now, go south again.
On the ground you will notice two small plants. If you kick them,
you will die, so be careful. Take one of the spores from the plants,
and venture your way east. Now, go up the platform ledge and go to the
top of the screen then move west. Then, you will see a mailbox. In
your possession is a mail order form for a magazine. Mail it and the
mailbox will whirl, and then a whistle will fall into the tray. Take
the whistle and go east. When you get to the next screen, go east
again, and you will be prompted to insert disk #2. When you find
yourself on the shoreline of a swamp, rub the berries on your body.
This will deter the swamp slug from trying to eat you.
Now, walk into the swamp. When you get into the 2nd screen of the
swamp, move towards the top of the screen and you will eventually find
a deep part of the swamp. When that happens, hold your breath and swim
under. You will be in an underground cavern, and you must follow it
until you find your way out the other end. At this end is a glowing
gem. Take the gem and enter the water again and hold your breath
again. Swim back to the swamp, and continue your journey east again.
When you reach the edge of a deep, deep cliff, you must then climb the
dead tree situated at the edge and it will crack and provide a bridge
over the cliff. Walk over the log and walk east again. As you are
walking east in the woods, you will be caught in a booby trap, and
blood will rush to yer brain and you may begin seeing things and
dreaming about weird things, then when you wake up, you will be in a
cage with a beast watching the fire burn. What you have to do is get
the guard's attention. Try to talk to him several times, and when he
finally approaches your cage door and stops, throw the spores at him.
The fumes of the spores will kill him. Now, take the keys from him,
unlock the door, and then open it and take the rope from the boulder
and make your way north.
You will end up on a small platform in the mountain side. In the
distance you will see the landing platform that you landed on when you
arrived on the planet. Quickly as possible, make your way west. If you
are too slow, you will be discovered and shot by Vohol's men. When you
make it west, you will be in the forest again. Walk west once more and
you will be beside the cliff. Climb onto the log and crawl half way
across it. Now, tie the rope to the log and climb down the rope. (Do
not tie the rope to the stump). Down inside the crack, you will see a
large monster growling at you. Move your way down the rope until your
feet hit the bottom of the rope. Now, start swinging the rope. The
rope will swing faster and faster. When you notice the monster swing
his arm at you once, that is your cue to jump to the othe ledge. Don't
let him have a second chance to swing at you. You should make it to
the other ledge. You will be in a dark cave, so walk into the darkness
as far as you can, and then hold out the gem in your hand. It will
give you a lot of illumination inside the darkness. Make your way
around the rocks and go all the way to the end of the cave, until you
fall down in a hole.
When you fall out into an opening surrounded by large boulders,
some small men will appear and tell you to follow them. Before you
follow them, take the gem from the ground again. (You dropped it when
you fell). Now, follow them south. They will talk to you thanking you
for saving their friend's life, etc, etc and tell you you can stay as
long as you want, and just give the word when you want to leave. There
is no reason to stay there because you already picked up your gem
again. Now, type "Say the word" and they will provide you a means of
exiting the place. Climb down the ladder. You will be in total
darkness! Now, to provide some light, put the gem in your mouth and
you will have some light. What you have to do is find your way out of
the underground cavern. Here is a partial map of how to get out. It
may not be exactly to scale, but it should suffice.

When you reach a beautiful underground waterfall and a lake, walk
into the water and work your way to follow the current of the water.
When you approach the stream where it forks of into two holes (caves),
take the right cave. If you take the left cave, you will meet your
death by falling over a waterfall. Take the right one! You will
approach a whirlpool and get sucked up by it, but you will not die.
You will exit out into a small lake-like pond with an ugly face carved
in the mountain. A waterfall is spewing out of its mouth. Move right
and you will end up in a place where you cannot move anywhere. You are
surrounded by a large rock and trees. Just to be safe, stand in the
water and blow your whistle. A beast that looks somewhat like a
tornado will cut its way through the rock and try to kill you, but
because you are in the water, he will not touch you. What you have to
do is throw the puzzle at him. You must be quick to do this, or he
will kill you. Stand on the ground, and throw it at him and he will
leave you alone. Now, walk into the hole the beast carved for you in
You will now be outside of the platform where you arrived on when
you came to the planet. A guard will be patrolling the building, so be
careful where you walk, or you will be shot. When the guard looks out
when standing in the middle, and proceeds walking LEFT, then take off
to the door and insert the keycard into the door. If he is walking
'Right', he will see you and kill you. Be quick! If you do it okay,
you will end up on top of the platform and you will see a spaceship.
Walk to the rear of the ship and open the hatch. When at the controls
of the ship, press the "power" button, then turn the dial, and press
the thruster button, and pull back on your joystick (or hit the down-
arrow key on your key pad). You will begin rising. When you exit the
atmosphere of the planet, begin moving in the forward direction.
Eventually, Vohol will get you and take control of the ship, and guide
you to his base inside a very, very large meteor. It is now time to
insert disk #3.
You will now be docked in Vohol's base, but oddly enough, you do
not see any guards. You are curious as to what Vohol as in store for
you. Walkways are extending in almost every direction. Take one of the
paths going towards the east or the west. Either way, you will find an
elevator. Walk inside the elevator and look around. You will notice a
panel with buttons on it. The buttons are labelled One, Three, Four,
and Five. The second level is NOT accessible from the elevators. Now,
press "three" and you will be transported to level three. As you walk
along level 1, you will notice a door with a button on it. This is the
only thing I found interesting on this level. Push the button and walk
inside the door and take a look. It will be dark, but you will notice
that you are in a janitor's closet. In there is a plunger. Take the
plunger. On each end of the levels is an elevator. Make your way to
any one of the elevators and transport yourself to level four. On this
level, you will find a door. Push the button and inside the door you
will find a glass cutter. You obviously have to take it.
As you continue on looking around level three, you will find a
bathroom. In the empty stall in the bathroom, take the toilet paper
and leave the bathroom. Make your way to an elevator and go to level
five. Up there you will find a door that contains a waste basket. Take
the waste basket. Also visible are a pair of overalls. Take the
overalls and a lighter will fall out. Take this also. Also on this
level is a kissing monster with red lips who will give you a juicy
french kiss. I don't see any significance to this love monster yet. On
any of the levels, you may see a floor-walker waxing the floors. Run
away from it! If you don't, he will flatten you and end yer' game.
Now, go back down to level one in front of your space ship.
You will now see a path extending downwards. Walk down the path
and you will be trapped in between two barriers and the floor is
moving slowly out from underneath you. At the VERY last minute, stick
your plunger to the barrier. You will be safe. When the floor closes
again, climb down from the plunger. You will subsequently lose your
plunger, but you do not need it. To the right and the left are two
exits. On both exits are some killer-robots. Before you go in any
direction, put the toilet paper inside the waste basket, then drop the
waste basket on the floor and light the paper. This will cause the
heat- sensitive sprinklers to go off on the ceiling short-circuiting
the robots. After your slick job has been completed, go right until
you find yourself in a room where Vohol is sitting on a platform
looking at you. What you have to do is walk up the stairs towards him.
You will be shot by a laser-beam, but your game is NOT over. You will
eventually be minituarized and stored into a small jar. Cut the jar
with the glass cutters and you will see a vent to your left.
Climb inside the vent and push the button on the back wall. This
will shut off the life-support systems thus killing Vohol. Go back
through the vents and walk to your left. By now, you will see a
keyboard, monitor, and a switch. Walk up to the switch and pull it.
Now, the screen will ask you if you want to enlarge or reduce. You
want to enlarge, so type enlarge on the keyboard and go back inside
the jar and you will be enlarged again. Search Vohol's dead body and
you will notice a password on him. This password is SHSR. Look at the
flashing screen and type in the password SHSR to abort the launch of
the clone-salesmen. Now, make yer' way up the second flight of stairs.
You will now be outside of the meteor in some sort of tunnel.
Beside you is a box. Open the box and wear the oxygen mask found
inside. Walk along the tunnel until you find yourself inside the base
again. You should save your game now as its not hard to die. The sound
of a blaring siren is ringing through your ears. You must escape from
the meteor-base right away. Walk left and after two (2) screens, type
"PUSH BUTTON", but don't hit the return key. Walk one more screen left
and when you see the robot standing on the wall, as quick as you can
push the button to open the pod door and type "ENTER POD". This may
take a few tries as you have to be extremely quick as the robot can
kill you very easy. When inside the pod, press the launch button. Ahh!
You have escaped from Vohol's base, but your problems are not over
yet!! Your oxygen supply is about to go empty, so you must walk around
the pod and find the chamber. Open it and climb inside. You have saved
the universe and the planets from certain destruction! You are waiting
for someone to find you... Soon!
