The Last Half of Darkness VGA is an Horror Adventure game made by SoftLab
Software Laboratories and released on 1991 for the DOS.

This walkthrough only covers the 1991 shareware version of The Last Half of
Darkness VGA.  This walkthrough does not cover the 1990 versions of The Last
Half of Darkness.  They are commonly known as The Last Half of Darkness EGA
and The Last Half of Darkness EGA+ [Although the title screen says "The Last
Half of Darkness VGA", it is not actually displayed in true VGA graphics.]  Or
the 2000 version of The Last Half of Darkness:  The New Beginning.

There are unmarked spoilers in this document.  I written this in a way to tell
the player how to beat this game and I may skip areas that serve no purpose in
getting toward the end.  To experience the most fulfillment is to explore
areas on your own and use this as a guide to help keep you on the right track.
I hope you enjoy playing this game as much as I did!

| [02] CONTROLS                                                              |

     | USING THE KEYBOARD                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

If a mouse is not available the keyboard must be used.  Use the arrow keys to
position the cursor over objects, doors, etc. or to select commands.  Pressing
the NUM LOCK key will allow the cursor to move in larger increments around the
screen.  Pressing it again will discontinue this function.  Use the space bar
to "CLICK."

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | COMMANDS                                                         |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

To select a commmand, simply move the cursor over the command of your choice
and "CLICK."  For example, if you wanted to enter a room, move the cursor to
the command GO and then "CLICK."  The command will hi-light to show it has
been selected.  Then move to the door or inside the exit box (indicating the
door) and "CLICK."

Examine [F1] - This command will examine an object more closely.
Go      [F2] - Used to enter through a doorway, exit, etc.
Open    [F3] - Choose this command when an object or door needs to be opened.
Take    [F4] - Certain objects are needed to complete your quest.  Use this
               command to put them in your inventory.
Operate [F5] - This command will turn certain things on and off.  It is also
               used when you wish to use an object in your inventory.  To
               select an object to operate, simply position the cursor on or
               near any object inside the inventory box and then "CLICK."
Disk    [F6] - Save your current game or load a previously saved game.

     | SAVING AND LOADING                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

To save a game for later use, select the DISK command from the command list.
Once selected, a prompt will appear asking you if you want to save, load, or
cancel.  Enter the SAVE name or enter the LOAD name and press ENTER or RETURN.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | EXITS                                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The exit map (located below your inventory) is required to see all possible
exits at a given location.  The exit map is a top view floorplan of your
location.  All possible exits are indicated as boxes.  The commands GO and
OPEN can be used within these boxes.  Simply move the cursor INSIDE the box
and "CLICK."  The result will be the same as if you "CLICKED" on the actual
door in the view screen.

Uncover your late aunt's secrets...

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | ENTRANCE HALL                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We'll go upstairs in just a moment, first let's go into the Kitchen.  Select
"Go" [F2] and click on the northeastern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | KITCHEN                                                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Select "Open" [F3] and click on the left cabinets.  You will see a KEY hanging
from the cabinet door, select "Take" [F4] and click on the KEY.

Now select "Open" [F3] and click on the eastern door which leads us outside.
Select "Go" [F2] and click on the northeastern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | GARDEN                                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is an empty PAIL on the ground, select "Take" [F4] and click on the
PAIL.  The fountain here is covered in sludge, so we will have to get our
water elsewhere.

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | KITCHEN                                                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

No water comes out of the faucets here, so we will have to check somewhere
else.  Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | ENTRANCE HALL                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We get a warm welcome from a hooded figure.  After he floats away upstairs,
we're going to follow him.  But we need to take a look at something, select
"Examine" [F1] and click on the moosehead to the upper right.  It will tell
you:  "'Plant upstairs is very dry, water soon or it shall die!'"  With this
clue in mind, select "Go" [F2] and click on the northwestern box on the "Exit
Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are four doors here.  First, let's unlock the door to our right.  Select
"Operate" [F5], click on the KEY, and use it on the southeastern door.  Then
select "Open" [F3] and click on the southeastern door to open it.  Now that it
is unlocked, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southeastern box on the "Exit
Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | STAIRS                                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Ignore the warning, it's safe to go upstairs.  Select "Go" [F2] and click on
the northern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | ATTIC                                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There are two useful items in this attic.  First, select "Take" [F4] and click
on the TOWEL hanging on the hat rack in front of you.  Then select "Open" [F3]
and click on the box with a strange symbol of a witch on it.  Inside the box
is an AXE.  Select "Take" [F4] and click on the AXE.

We're done here, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit
Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | STAIRS                                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The next door we should enter is to the southwest.  Select "Open" [F3] and
click on the southwestern door to open it.  Then select "Go" [F2] and click on
the southwestern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BEDROOM [CLOSET ROOM]                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a vase on the table which once bloomed a rare Gi-Gi herb that is on
the verge of dying.  Remembering from what the moosehead told us:  "'Plant
upstairs is very dry, water soon or it shall die!'"  Knowing what we should do
next, select "Go" [F2] and click on the northwestern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BATHROOM                                                         |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Let's see if we can get some water here.  Select "Operate" [F5] and click on
the faucets of the tub.  Now that we have running water, "Operate" [F5] the
PAIL over the faucet, and we have a FILLED PAIL.

Also if you want a quick scare, "Operate" [F5] the faucets on the sink to see
a zombie crashing down on you.

We are done with the Bathroom, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box
on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BEDROOM [CLOSET ROOM]                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Water the dying plant by selecting "Operate" [F5], then click on the FILLED
PAIL, and use it on the vase.  The plant quickly sucked up the water and now
all we can do is wait for it to bloom.  It takes four screens for it to fully
blossom, but we have other things to do in the meantime.  You can also speed
up the blooming process by watering it twice.  Well, since we're here, let's
get some more water for another objective later on.

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the northwestern box on the "Exit Map" to go
back to the Bathroom.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BATHROOM                                                         |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Select "Operate" [F5], click on the PAIL, and use it over the tub.

Now select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BEDROOM [CLOSET ROOM]                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now we're gonna go through the door to the northwest.  Select "Open" [F3] and
click on the northwestern door to open it.  Then select "Go" [F2] and click on
the northwestern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [DRESSER ROOM]                                           |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Select "Open" [F3] and click on the dresser.  There seems to be a BOX inside,
pick it up by selecting "Take" [F4] and click on the BOX.  The BOX is locked
and there appears to be no way of opening it, even if you used the KEY on it.
Oh well.

We're done with this room, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on
the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Now let's go through the last door in this hallway.  Select "Open" [F3] and
click on the northeastern door to open it.  Then select "Go" [F2] and click on
the northeastern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BEDROOM [PAINTING ROOM]                                          |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a huge painting in this room and upon closer inspection, it appears
to be recently wiped.  Let's see what happens if we do the same thing, select
"Operate" [F5], click on the TOWEL, and use it on the painting.  There is a
hidden compartment behind this painting and there seems to be something
inside!  Select "Take" [F4] and BOOK, then open it by selecting "Open" [F3]
and BOOK.  "Examine" [F1] BOOK to read:  "There is some sort of a riddle on
one of the pages, Code for girl you must save, try mirror image of the GRAVE."
We don't know what this means yet, but we can now leave.

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Time to check up on the Gi-Gi herb.  Select "Go" [F2] and click on the
southwestern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | BEDROOM [CLOSET ROOM]                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

The Gi-Gi herb is now in full bloom.  Let's pluck one off by selecting "Take"
[F4] and click on the plant for a GI-GI HERB.

We're done with this room, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on
the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | HALLWAY [UPSTAIRS]                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

We are completely done with upstairs, select "Go" [F2] and click on the
southern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | ENTRANCE HALL                                                    |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Time to go to an unexplored area.  Select "Go" [F2] and click on the
southwestern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There appears to be something on the table.  Selecting "Take" [F4] and click
on the DROPPER.

We'll come back here in just a moment, select "Go" [F2] and click on the
southern box on the "Exit Map".

     | STUDY                                                            |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a creature here, and with the chalkboard next to you stating, "YOUR
NOT ALONE" -- aside from the grammatical mistake, they weren't kidding!
Thankfully, he's appears to be friendly.  First select "Take" [F4] and click
on the right bookcase.  The creature tells you, "Mix the Gi-Gi with the red,
behind the fireplace lay her head.  Secret Lab just over there... right behind
the case of bare!  Open the bare case behind the ghoul and the Secret Lab will
be quite full."

So there's a secret lab behind the empty bookcase?  Select "Open" [F3] and
click on the central bookcase behind the creature.  The creature will vanish
and just as he said, there is a secret doorway.  Select "Go" [F2] and click on
the northern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | LABORATORY                                                       |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Recalling from the BOOK, it states:  "Code for girl you must save, try mirror
image of the GRAVE."  If we were to reverse the word, GRAVE, we will get
"EVARG".  "Operate" [F5] the computer and it will ask for you to input a
password.  Input "EVARG", and it will give us this message:  "Girl asleep, and
maybe dead, drop of green might raise her head.  Flood the fire then axe wall
must save girl behind it all".

Now let's turn our attention to the bubbling red liquid in the skull cauldron.
Select "Operate" [F5] and use the DROPPER on the red liquid to get DROPPER
FILLED WITH RED LIQUID.

Let's go back to the Parlor, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on
the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

Recalling from the computer, it states:  "Flood the fire then axe wall must
save girl behind it all".  Since there is a fire here, select "Operate" [F5]
and use the FILLED PAIL on the fire.  Then select "Operate" [F5] and use the
AXE on the boards behind the logs in the fireplace.  It reveals a hidden
passageway!

Select "Go" [F2] and click on the northern box on the "Exit Map".

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o
     | SLAB                                                             |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

There is a beautiful girl laying on a slab.  Surrounding her body is a pool
of lava.  Select "Operate" [F5] and use the DROPPER FILLED WITH RED LIQUID on
the lava.  A mysterious plank will form, allowing you to get closer to her.

But we need something to wake her up, let's head back to the Laboratory.
Select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on the "Exit Map".

Recalling from the computer, it states:  "Girl asleep, and maybe dead, drop of
green might raise her head."  The only thing green in our "Inventory" is the
GI-GI HERB.  So "Operate" [F5] the GI-GI HERB on the skull cauldron.  The
liquid's color is now green!  Select "Operate" [F5] and use the DROPPER on the
green liquid to get DROPPER FILLED WITH GREEN LIQUID.

Time to go back to the girl, select "Go" [F2] and click on the southern box on

Here are the differences between the 1990 EGA, 1990 VGA, and 1991 VGA versions
of The Last Half of Darkness.  I try to list the major differences.

  same interface.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

· Changed Commands:  "Save" and "Load" became "Disk".

· Changed items:  DROPPER WITH GREEN LIQUID became DROPPER FILLED WITH GREEN
  LIQUID, DROPPER WITH RED LIQUID became DROPPER FILLED WITH RED LIQUID, GI-GI
  BLOSSOM became GI-GI HERB, OPEN BOOK became OPENED BOOK, and WATER CAN
  (FILLED WATER CAN) became PAIL (FILLED PAIL).
· Removed locations:  Attic [Coffin Room], Bathroom [Attic Bathroom],
  Caretaker, Cemetery [Caretaker], Cemetery [To Guest House], Closet, Dark
  Figure [Shack], Dining Room, Front Yard, Guest House [Exterior], Guest House

version with the 1990's versions.

     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Q:  WHAT IS THE AUNT'S NAME?]
· A:  The aunt is not named in the 1991 version.

[Q:  WHO IS THAT GIRL?]
· A:  They do not reveal who the girl is in the 1991 version, however her
      identity should be revealed in The Last Half of Darkness II.

[Q:  WHAT ITEMS ARE MISSABLE?]
· A:  There are no items that are missable.

[Q:  IS IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE GAME UNWINNABLE?]
· A:  No, there is always a solution to help you proceed further.

[Q:  HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FINISH THIS GAME?]
· A:  It takes about 10 to 20 minutes to beat, this game is pretty short.

[Q:  HOW MANY ENDINGS DOES THIS GAME HAVE?]
· A:  This game only has one ending.  Regardless if you beat the game with or
      without the BOX.

     | GAMEPLAY QUESTIONS                                               |
     o------------------------------------------------------------------o

[Q:  WHY DO I GET "NOTHING HAPPENED!" WHEN I USE AN ITEM CORRECTLY?]
· A:  It is most likely because you are playing on a faster computer.  Don't
      worry, the game actually properly registered your last command and you
      should have no worries.

[Q:  WHERE DO I GO TO FILL UP THE PAIL?]
· A:  You will have to use the water from the tub in the Bathroom.

[Q:  HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR THE GI-GI HERB TO BLOSSOM?]
· A:  You have to at least walk four screens in order for it to blossom.

[Q:  HOW DO I CHANGE THE GREEN LIQUID BACK TO THE RED LIQUID?]
· A:  You cannot, but the red liquid is not needed to finish the game.

[Q:  WHAT PURPOSE DOES THE DROPPER FILLED WITH RED LIQUID SERVE?]
· A:  It allows a plank to be formed allowing you access to the girl.  However
      due to a lazy programming, you can reach the girl without the plank.

[Q:  WHERE IS THE "SPEAK" COMMAND TO SAY "HABACAS OJECA MISTO"?]
· A:  You cannot speak at all in this game.  In order to form the plank, you
      need to use the DROPPER FILLED WITH RED LIQUID.

[Q:  WHAT HAPPENS IF I USED THE DROPPER OF GREEN LIQUID ON THE LAVA?]
· A:  Nothing happens.

[Q:  WHAT HAPPENS IF I USED THE DROPPER OF RED LIQUID ON THE GIRL?]
· A:  Nothing happens.
