Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Zork Nemesis - Complete Solution

By now you will probably have wandered around the Zork world, looked
about a 
little, saved a few times and more than likely become hopelessly stuck
at some 
point. It's a tricky game, and this time we're going to approach the
solution from 
a different angle. Instead of giving you a step-by-step guide, we're
going to tell 
you how to solve the individual puzzles. The exploration is up to you
and the 
order in which you complete your tasks is frequently flexible.

The Start
The first thing to do is move towards the temple and open the double
doors by 
going to the door on the left and dragging the knocker up so that the
completely surrounds the sun. Well, how else would you knock on a
door? This 
will lead you to the library. Read the six books on the bench and
either make 
some notes or remember where they are, because you'll need to refer
back to 
them. There are some panels here, as well, which will slide back to
reveal the 
entry point to the fire pavilion.  Moving on you will find the
courtyard with a 
fountain in it. This connects the library, the ruined deck, the
hallway and the lab. 
You can play with the fountains to get some rather interesting
effects. If you go to 
the ruined deck, you will see a sundial. Look a little closer and you
will be able to 
get the spike from it. The lab is a more important place to go,
though. It contains 
the scroll and this is possibly the most important item in the entire
game. Get 
some paper and copy down the first page of it verbatim. It gives you
relationship between the four metals, planets and elements and
provides the 
(albeit obscure) clues to breaking most of the puzzles you will face
later on.
Now that you've got the feel of the game go back to the library and
move towards 
the panel. Click the left side of the first panel, the right of the
second, the right of 
the third (this time twice) and finally the left of the fourth. Enter
and turn the 
man's head so that it points to the fire symbol (the triangle), as
this will open the 
first door. The spike that you picked up from the sundial will open
the second 
door; just put it in the new sundial and twist it until the newly
formed shadow falls 
on the Saturnax symbol.  When you get to the flame puzzle hang the
mirror on the 
hooks and look at it. One of the flames will have turned blue and this
is the one 
that needs your closer attention. It's the one on the second row, 12
from the 
right as you enter. All this deals with your search for the fire
element. Next is air, 
although the order in which you complete the elements is unimportant.
Go to the temple and walk between the four coffins, past the right of
the altar and 
to the right. In this horns and stars room play the horn. What you
need to do is 
turn off all the purple stars from left to right and click in the
centre blue star. 
Simple. Now move onto the gas globe. Face the globe and take a step
right. Face 
the globe and press on the black scarab to close the windows so you
can use the 
levers. Go back to the levers and from left to right set them so that
they are all, 
half, all, all and none. That's air sorted.  Next stop is the flute
and fountain room 
for the water element. This is on the left, past the four coffins. You
should find a 
flute player and seven fountains. Each fountain plays a note which
will match the 
flute player.  The way to match everything up, and sort out those
weird stairs that 
lead nowhere, is to turn on the first, fourth and fifth fountains
(from left to right), 
then go up the left doorway steps.  You will now be in the chair room.
Click on 
the hourglass to make the chair appear. Sit in it, obviously, and spin
twice (720 
degrees) to the left. Go forward and pick up the saw that you will
see. Return to 
your seat and spin three complete times to the left. Now you can cut
the icicle 
with the saw. Go back to the chair and make two complete spins to the
right, in 
case you weren't dizzy enough already. Move forward and click on the
containing the water. That's it, water puzzle solved. Click the coffin
which is 
touched by the sunbeam and listen. That's the water element found.
To get the earth element go to the stairway to the left of the altar.
When you see 
the fist lock, lift the first and sixth finger (from left to right) to
open the door. 
When you are faced with the mine car (bizarre as it is to find one in
a temple) 
click on the upper right square on the contraption next to it. Now
ride the car. The 
end of the first section of Zork Nemesis is upon you.  Go to the room
with the 
planets and pull the left lever to the end of the horizontal T. Put
the globe in the 
scope on the arm and go back to the lever. Push it so that it's at the
top of the T. 
Now go to the room with the model of the planets in it. Move the
handle on the 
dial to the right. This is how you locate and travel to the different
worlds. 9.15 on 
the dial is Malveaux, 11.00 is Sophia, 2.30 is Sartorius and 1.15 is

The Asylum
The X-ray machine is how you can see inside the locked box and find
part of the 
combination. Put the object to be scanned in the box and pull the
yellow lever. 
Find the row of heads and get a fifth head from the basement near
them. Put this 
head on the spare spike and use the buttons by it to access its
memory.  Take the 
silver box and place it in the X-ray machine you used previously.
Write the 
numbers down and use them with the three numbers you got from the head.
Place the safe in the X-ray machine by the freezer and get the two
Connect them with the three from the head. You can now open the safe.
Get the 
jar and get rid of the contents. You will now find the key inside. Use
this key to 
operate the elevator, but don't leave the doors open when you ride it.
On the right-
hand panel of the elevator press the red button to turn it on and the
upper-left to 
close the doors. The key on the left-hand panel will take you to a new
floor. When 
it stops, open the doors.  Find the three handles and pull them in
order from left to 
right. Now move to the drawers at the end of the morgue. The ones to
the right of 
the machine hold your puzzle. In the third row from the bottom, fourth
from the 
left drawer, is a body. Take it to the table and operate the machine.
Wait for it to 
do its gruesome deed and pick your new surprise.
Move on to the electric chair. Move the lever to the right and sit in
the chair 
(shocking). This will allow you access to Sartorius' chamber. Walk up
to the 
keypad and break the glass in the case to the left. Steal the hand and
use it on the 
keypad to unlock this door. A hammer is on the bed on floor 21, get it
and break 
the glass case, and then use it again to get the hand. You will now be
faced with 
another model. Push the button on the base of the model to lower a
ladder. This 
model controls the lab on the 22nd floor. When it is on, the lab is
up, and when 
it's off, the lab is down.  Use the reflex hammer to break the glass
in the hand 
display cabinet. In the lab, fill the sink with water and then pull
the lever to drain 
the water into the batteries. This will charge them up.  When they're
fully charged 
throw the switch to receive a shock. Now you need to burn pure
hydrogen and the 
colourless gas inside the globe. Melt the metal then ignite the
hydrogen and 
oxygen to make water that will get rid of any impurities. Then hit the
switch to lift the globe, allowing you to take the purified metal.

The Castle
Go to the desk and take the nitro bottle from the left-hand drawer.
Click on the 
lock on the chest to blow it away with the nitro. Look at the poem in
the desk. It 
will tell you how many visors should be up on the suits of armour. Now
go to the 
easel and use the brush to wipe out what's on it. You will now see a
list. Now it's 
time to get a bit nasty and use the gunpowder to get past the dog
that's waiting for 
you downstairs.  Go to the pool room and press three, then five. When
the shot is 
made look at the ball return slot to find the order of numbers for
another puzzle. 
Then it's on to those knights in shining armour. The guy with the
pointy kneecaps 
and slotted visor should have it down, the one with the shield and
blue plume 
should have his visor up, the one with the red trim should be up, the
dark grey 
knight should be down and the samurai should be down. You can now go
into the 
dungeon.  The old soldier won't let you out until you send him the
instructions over the radio in the diorama room. Go to the fireplace
room and get 
the sword. Put it into the scabbard to get into the weapons room. Put
Thaddium into the Thaddium Energy Diverter next to it so that you can
carry it. 
Take it to the tank outside the castle to power it. 
Go to the dungeon room and take the sword handle from the table and
put it next 
to the blade over the fire to make a new full sword. Now find the dog.
Click on 
his ear to load the bones. Open up the back end to load the gunpowder
you got 
from upstairs. Close the back end and click on the tail. This will
open the doors 
for you.  The code to get past the old soldier is 10 - distraction, 1
- build bridge, 9 
- split troops, 6 - infiltrate and 12 - verify message. You will now
be able to get to 
the tank. Place the TED in the blue tube at the back of the tank.
Enter the numbers 
from the pool table into the control panel of the tank. Click on the
handle to the 
right to go to the alchemy lab. In order to get back to the castle
eventually, click 
all the numbers back to zeros.
When you're in the lab press the shape of Kaine's sign on to the
centre squares 
and then place it in the right position on the darker squares on the
right. When 
you're done, click on the right-hand handle to get the mould. To get
the correct 
temperature press the red button on the right to start the whole
process. Press the 
four white buttons on the bottom, along with the white one at the top
left. You'll 
hear a bell and a voice. Go now to the processor and place the mould
into the 
brown box. Take the iron with the arm and use the fan.

The Conservatory
In Sophia's office take the tuning fork from the box on the table and
put it on the 
piano. Match the tone of the fork to the keys. When you match it look
inside the 
piano to get a key. This will allow you to turn on the desk lamp. The
16th white 
key is the one you want to press. Get the last two records and take
them to the 
practice room. Use them on the record player. You must place all the
onto the chairs in the proper arrangement according to the chart on
the wall. 
You'll also need to listen to the records.  Go upstairs to
Alexandria's room and 
get the last poster from the poster book on her bed. Place it over the 
torn poster by the auditorium to get the ticket from the booth. Go and
sit in box C 
(it's on the second level, near the middle). After you've gone to box
C and seen 
the FMV sequence, come back downstairs. You have to use the baton to
'cue' the 
sections where the instruments are sitting in the correct sequence to
the traditional fanfare. From the records the sequence is: popperkeg,
popperkeg, wertmizer, violin. The instruments aren't laid out exactly
like in the 
practice room. When you've done this you have access to the stage.
Go to the control panel and click the red button. Then click on the
2nd, 3rd, 4th 
and 6th buttons. You can now get backstage. Stand to the right of the
swan and 
pull the cord. Get inside it and click the crank, you can now jump
into the drum. 
When you have the locket place it on the second lever from the left. 
Remember this: when you get to the underwater room you can get out by
through the door under the clock. This is where you get the locket to
stick on the 
lever. To get back upstairs from the boiler room go to the dark
doorway, which 
will take you to the lobby.  Back in the office, when you turn on the
lamp it will 
show you the process for making metal. After you've done the trick
with the lever 
in the boiler room you can use the green crystal to seed the boiling
You can then purify with the tablet from the green fish. Click on the
blue crystals 
to create the harmony of the sphere, which will in turn shatter the
giant crystal in 
the boiling solution. Remember, when the pool is boiling, the
ingredients are all in 
the lamp upstairs. So to clear this part, put the locket on the second
lever, add the 
green crystal to the boiling solution in the lab, add the tablet from
the fish and 
click on the blue crystals in this order: C, D, E, B and G.

The Monastery
Face the front door and turn 90 degrees to the right. Now go down the
tunnel. When you need to return to the temple go to the spinning
planet and carry 
on down to the end of the path. Look down at the sunlight and get the
coin. Put it 
in the donation box.  Go back to the monastery. When you turn away
from the 
front door you will see some masks. Put the plaques in this order: two
eyes and 
wide open mouth, two eyes and crooked mouth, straight horizontal line,
a tooth 
and suspicious eyes. They should start on the left and run clockwise.
The masks 
will now speak, and you must remember what they say. Move onto the
bell and 
pull the levers in this order: 1st from left on the top row, 2nd from
right on top 
row, 1st from right on top row, 4th from right on bottom row, middle
top row and 
2nd from left on the top row. The rope of the seventh bell will now
come down.  
Go to Malveaux's bed and look in the bookcase. One of the books will
move to 
open a passage. Follow this passage to return to the bedroom. Find the
lens in the 
office and bring it back to the book on the bed. Place the lens on the
book to read 
it. Make a note of what is written. In Alexandria's room click on the
music on the stand.  Now move onto the lock with the symbols on it.
Each of the 
glyphs represents a letter. All you have to do is substitute row for
row. Click on 

the appropriate glyphs and the dial will turn. Move on to the relics
room.  Open 
the stone clam and press any of the buttons inside to deactivate the
alarm system 
and open up the catacombs. Get the torch from the corner of the relics
room. Get 
the red hem from the relics room and put it in the middle of the
shield. The relics 
room is left from the clamshell. Search the catacombs for Yoruk's
shield. It'll be 
in his crypt. Stick the gem in it and hold it in front of you as you
walk through the 
fire. Now throw it into the middle of the flames.
When you come to the skulls make sure they face these directions from
left to 
right: straight ahead, far left, right centre, left centre and far
right. Now go to the 
lab. Put the metal strip into the compressor machine and spin it into
a ball. There 
is a panel behind the machine. You need to open it and put the key you
got from 
the table in the slot. Use the lever to open the compressor and put
the strip inside. 
Drop the grey ball from the metal into a basket and boil away all the
Now you will have a white ball that fits into the Lion's mouth. First
turn on the 
lava pipe to start the flames.  The flames need to be set from top to
bottom: blue, 
yellow, red, orange and white. After you put the ball in the mouth
blow on the 
metal with the bellows. You're almost there now. Don't drink from the
cup and 
don't quit- this way you'll get past this bit. Also, don't try to
leave the alchemist's 
ceremony with the ring. Put the ring on the rusty red hand. You can
find it by 
stopping the water in the fountains.  Go beneath the temple and stand
by the 
demon with the glass bowl and move straight towards the burial figure.
through your inventory to find Lucien's ring and click on the other
ring to make 
two. Place them in the plate in front of the dragon and touch the
triangle. Put the 
molten rings in front of the elephant and touch the triangle again.
Get the fat 
quintessence and put it in front of the snake to crush the metal. 
Then put the 
metal in front of the demon and turn left. Move towards the door. Look
the ceiling and give the metal mace to the demon. Now go to the four
coffins and 
look down. Throw the Quintessence on Alexandria to defeat them. You've 
completed the weirdest game ever.
