Does anyone have a PDF copy of the manual for this game? I brought an original copy on floppy for my A440/1 from ebay, but it came without the manual. It seems I need the manual to get around the copy protection screen unhappy

Although the publisher doesn't supply the manual (unsurprisingly preferring instead that you buy another copy in order to get one), you can find it from this site. You can also find a scanned version of the manual online.

Sheesh, can't anybody use Google these days?

I only managed to find the first link which was no good since the manual was reformatted and didn't have the symbols needed. I will try the second one; thanks for the link.

Both of the links don't help... The Arch version is asking me to look at page '35' (the highest so far). The links seem to be a later PC version of the manual unhappy

So, does any one have the original Arch manual? I am even happy to buy it (with or without the rest of the game floppies/box/etc) for a reasonable price.

Can't find it, but I honestly can't imagine it's any different from, say, the Amiga version. Certainly, I had loads of other ports on my Acorn, and the manuals tended to be generic or identical for the most part. There are loads of Amiga copies on eBay, some for just a few quid.

Pretty certain we have a Simon the Sorcerer (my own personal copy) on the shelf. Maybe even the CD version. Drop me a line at the usual R-Comp email address and maybe we can work something out.
