Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Starting out[edit | edit source]
Enter the manor and climb up the staircase in the centre room. Then climb up the spiral stairs immediately west to find Professor Oddenstein. He will explain that Ernest was turned into a chicken when he was helping on an experiment with his 'pouletmorph' machine. However, to change him back, the professor needs parts that were stolen and hidden by the poltergeists in the manor.
Pressure gauge[edit | edit source]
To get the pressure gauge, fish food and poison are required. Fish food is in a blue box, one is found on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] in the room directly south of the main staircase. Poison is in a green bottle, one is found on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] in the small north-western room south of the kitchen.
Use the poison on the fish food to create poisoned fish food. Go to the south-eastern room, grab the spade next to the door leading outside, if you do not already have one to get the rubber tube. Leave the manor by exiting the door in the south-eastern room, go to the south-western corner of the manor grounds to the fountain. Use the poisoned fish food on the fountain to kill the piranhas then search the fountain to get the pressure gauge.
Rubber tube[edit | edit source]
On the west side of the grounds look for a compost heap, north of the belladonna special patch near a patch of cabbages. Search the compost heap, requiring a spade and you will get a key. Go back into the manor through the front door then go through the door to the room behind the stairs containing the aggressive skeleton and take the rubber tube. The skeleton will attack you if you are low level, it is easiest to get the rubber tube and leave as soon as possible.
Oil can[edit | edit source]
