HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY WALKTHROUGH
by LocoSpitz [locogfaqs@spurvus.com]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All commands can be typed in exactly as they appear. At various points in this
walkthrough there are point totals. When you get to one, make sure your score
matches. If it doesn't, you've done something wrong. If there is a note in the
walkthrough, make sure you read it. I've only included notes where necessary.

You will now be in one of five areas. The order they appear in is random.

****Every time you get to one, do this:

wait \/ wait \/ wait \/ wait \/

Then, use each of your senses (LISTEN,LOOK AT NOTHING,FEEL,SMELL).****

Two areas are activated with LOOK AT NOTHING.Each area is separated here by its
name and the sense used to get to it. You will end up at the Heart of Gold
after each area. Each area information here includes the steps needed to get to
the next area. Also, you may end up at some areas multiple times. If this
happens, do things normally. Your visit to the place will be cut short, and you
will be put back on the Heart of Gold. If this happens, do the following when
you are dumped into the DARK area:

wait \/ wait \/ wait \/ wait \/ aft \/ aft \/ up \/ press switch

And you will be sent to the next area. ONLY use that if you area dumped back from
and area you have ALREADY BEEN TO.

If you just cannot get to a certain area, you may need to hear a story. Use the
look command and enter nonsense commands (like MORK and MASIDNPF) until you hear
the story. Then, press the switch. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU CANNOT ACCESS A CERTAIN
AREA!
