Supernova walkthrough
anybody else playing Supernova? anybody solved it? in supernova i've managed to travel to a swamp planet but there's much to discover yet. these are great, they remind me of infocom stuff. thanks to 3drealms/apogee for releasing them, more old stuff please!
best hint: sit at middle table and "listen carefully to aliens" in the tavern. they give you lots of info.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Hey, I downloaded supernova a couple of days ago just cos it was such a small file. Now, ofcourse, I´m hooked. Even worse however, is that I´m hooked AND STUCK! I'm on the swampy planet, I´ve got into the pyramid, I got the shiny key from the glass ball in the secret room behind the pyramid lobby. I got the grey disk from the other room (don´t know what it does though, any thoughts?) All that seems to be left is to go down into that shiny walled maze and find what ever is in there. I made a map of what I can find but the only thing that seems to be in there is a nasty monster who gobbles me up before I can do anything. Have you found anything better (please give directions), if not d'you know how to get oast the nasty? Or am I supposed to go somewhere completely different, like over the quick sand (if that's possible). My score is 300 at the min, how you doing?
Also, What's this titanic like, where can I get it?

Re: Supernova walkthrough
you've accomplished more than i have. i haven't played in a couple weeks, but when i last played, i found the pyramid but could not figure out how to open the door; (i did however find the pit - bugger!) and gave up. my score at that point was around 100, so obviously i am missing a few things. i might have to try this again though... if you can supply any help please post here of email me. titanic's full title is beyond the titanic, it should be on the download page. that one i tried only a couple times, got caught in a whirlpool.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Take the red jewel out of the statues mouth infront of the pyramid (you have to OPEN MOUTH first) then stick it in the slot by the door. That gets you in. There´s a grey disk under a skull in one room, touch the small pyramid to open a secret door in the other but get in and out quick cos it closes up pretty fast. You might want to save before going in cos there´s a few traps and things. After you get the dusty ball you can clean it and smash it to get a key. After that there´s a maze type thing down the ladder at the bottom of the staircase that brings you in. That´s what I´m stuck on. There´s a big nasty monster thing somewhere in there that kills you the second you enter the room but other than that I can´t find anything else. I think I´ve mapped out the whole place but I´ve had no luck in there and don´t know where to go next. Let me know if you work it out.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Hello there

I downloaded SUPERNOVA and just like you I got also up to the part where I am in the pyramid.
What next?
I have been looking for a walkthrough but this game seems to be virtually unknown. No cheat site has it or knows it.

Did you solve the game already?
If yes then HOW do you move in the "mirror" room with the moving walls.
And WHERE do you move?

Any advice is welcome.
Thanks!

Ramon

Re: Supernova walkthrough
I FINISHED THE GAME !!!!

Well that said, I have to admit that I could finish it using a cheat mentioned in another threat.

So now I can start the game and get to the inside of the pyramid. (I am stuck in the mirror room, I can not move and I don't know where to move)
And I know the end part. I am at the ice-planet and solve the final stage of the game.
(I won't reveal any details unless requested, I don't want to spoil the fun)

But I wonder how to solve the middle part.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
I'm sorry but I can find no joy playing this game, to un-graphical or something... but I also hate to read books so uh... nevermind.

I SOLVED IT!!!!!!
I SOLVED THE MIRROR ROOM !!!!!

In the mirror room go.
NW-S-SE-E-NE-W-SE and then DOWN

(You might have to try several times to go in a certain direction.)

Now let's see who finishes the next part faster!

Re: Supernova walkthrough
I FINISHED THE GAME!!!!!!!!!
COMPLETELY!!!!!!!! FROM BEGINNING TO END...
Have joy with me!
So now I wonder if I will take the time to write a walkthrough, since none seems to exist. Is there a place on the Apogee site to post walkthroughs? I know a bunch of cheat sites which would like to have a new walkthrough.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
congratulations ramon for solving the game! i'm definitely interested in the walkthrough! i'm going to try your directions through the mirror room as soon as i get a chance. in an earlier post you mentioned a cheat - how is this done? you bypassed part of the game somehow? now you'll have to try beyond the titanic - theres no walkthrough for that one either!
thanks for the hints!

The cheat consists in walking W on the Barre-An crossroad. Keep walking West until "you notice somthing unusual" then type ENTER or IN and you enter a portal that will "warp" you directly to the ice planet with all the items you need.
But you miss all the fun of solving the pyramid.

BTW I played and finished Beyond the Titanic already. And for that game I was able to find walkthrougs on some walkthrough/cheat sites.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Supernova Walktrough (Apogee Software)
by Ramon Bartschat (bartschat@goldnet.sk)

I will only describe the shortest way.
And I will omit many details. There are many more rooms and objects you should explore on your own.

In between the described steps you will have to eat, drink and sleep.
-Sleeping can be done in your hotel room bed or spaceship bed.
-You can drink your beer and then refill the mug at a watertap at either your room or your spaceships bathroom. You can also dring directly from the water tap.
-You can only eat the food from the old storehouse, carefull it is for a limited amount of times.

START
- Buy a beer, sit at the middle table, wait for the aliens to sit down and then "listen carefully" to all they have to say, write down the coordinates they mention.
(Notice that the holster in your room is of no use in the game, also the rusty key is only needed to open your hotel room, nothing else)
- Go outside to the old storehouse and get the satchel with food (you don't need the satchel, just the food)


(SPECIAL CHEAT
- Go W on the Dusty Road until you "notice something unusual" then type ENTER or IN
This will take you directly to the ice planet with all the items you need and you will not be hungry, thirsty or sleepy)


WITHOUT CHEAT
- Go to your spaceship
- Go to the cockpit, place the cushion on the seat and sit down.
- To make it past security you have to provide the same "identity code name" you defined at beginning the game
- Fly to the coordinates you overheard from the aliens in the bar (R2/20-8-23 D2/VEGA)
- Iniciate the countdown and rush for your cryo tube
- Keep trying to land (pushing the button) until you do so.
- Get out of your spaceship and hear for the pyramid. Careful to "jump stream" to avoid the acid stream.
- When you get stung by the animal return to your spaceships laboratory and get serum number 6 (Poisons/Venoms). Put the empty mug in the niche for the serum. The serum dispenser will work only 2 times but you will not need it any more, only this one time.
- Get the cushion you will need it in the pyramid
- Return now all the way to the Pyramid.
- Open the mouth of the dog, take the jewel and open the pyramid door with it.
- Get down to the skeleton room, get the grey disk (you don't need the skull)
- Go to the mini-pyramid room, touch the pyramid to open the secret passage.
- Enter the secret room and get the dusty ball, clean the ball, throw the ball at the wall to extract the shiney key (Should the secret door close then "turn podium" to open it again or just leave the room befor it closes)
- Go to the mirror room. In the mirror room go NW-S-SE-E-NE-W-SE and then DOWN. (You might have to try several times until you don't bump into a wall any more)
- Drop all you have except the cushion and the shiney key (You will need to carry a heavy rod later)
- Head for the other mini-pyramid room
- Put the cushion on the floor, put the shiney key in the keyhole, catch the crystal (wait a little for a secret room to open)
- Get back to the round room and take the rod
- CRAWL NORTH, JUMP GAP, PUT ROD IN RECESS
- Go and take all the items you left before.
- Go back through the mirror room NW-E-SE-S-NW-SE and UP (again you might have to try several times to go in a certain direction until you don't bump into a wall)
- Go back to where the big climbable tree is. A new way heading SW will be available now.
- Follow the SW track and enter the Antenna Building (From now on, when you find things to read, read them backwards - SDRAWKCAB)
- Go to the transport booth and push the button
- Go find the robot in the Reactor Control room, "open panel" and get the plastic card
- Open the closed door with the plastic card, enter and get the suit
- Go to the transport boot and push the purple button to get the goggles, push the cyan button to go to the ice planet. Use the tan button to get back to the planet with your spaceship (to refill water or to sleep for example)


ON THE ICE PLANET (in reality a giant planetsize spaceship)
- Enter the building and put the grey disk in the slot
- DROP ALL ! If not you will loose all when the robot comes. You will find the grey disk here again, you don't need it.
- Wait for the robot to zap you and then get all your posessions again.
- Wear the suit and go out to the circular corridor
- Go to Transmission room and turn off the alarm (this is not a neccesary step though)
- Go to the Maintenance room, find and get the gloves (you don't need the "device" found there)
- Go to the closed door and open it with the pastic card
- Enter to the Emergency Override room and Hit the cryo tube with the mug to free the scientist
- Either wait for the scientist here or follow him (you will end up in the same room again anyhow)
- Give him the clear crystal
- Wait to hear all his instructions
- Head for the elevator and go to the level the scientist mentioned you (480)
- Now is the time to wear the goggles and the gloves
- Exit and head for the room where the panel with the crystals are
- Open the panel and get the blue crystal
- Place your clear crystal in the soket


That is about it.
Remember, there are many more rooms and objects you should investigate.

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Gee... I just ran a spell checker through my earlier posted walkthrough, there are a million spelling mistakes. I hope you all don't mind. LOL

Re: Supernova walkthrough
Thanks for the walkthrough, Ramon, now I can play the game, before I couldn't get the coordinates so I just read all of the posts and got your walkthrough. I hope you don't mind if I put it on cheat sites for you, (only crediting you for it of course).
I just had an idea!
Just tell Joe Siegler or whoever it is to put it on the page to go along with SuperNova, right under the link to download it.
