Thanks for your help. I am now at the point where

if you go forward you get eaten by a grue. Nice reference back to zork by the way.
I would appreciate it if you could give me a hint how to get through here without being eaten.

Thanks,

I assume that I

My problem is that

PS I figured this out. Please disregard.

You need another key for the caravan, so do not concentrate yet on the acid or skeleton key. You will later find a container... Examine everything that is aleady accessible.

Thank you :)

I amended my post to say that I solved that one. I finished the game with the help of the previous posts.

I'm well and truly stuck. I've gotten into the caravan and have a ton of items including: matches, coins, piggy bank, gold key, gold ring, skeleton key, hammer, saw, batteries, mug, petrol canister, plunger, magnet+spanner, money, red/yellow/blue cassettes.

I've started a fire, but not sure what to do with it.
I've attached the crank to the strange device.. other than turning the crank (and seeing nothing happen after it spins), not sure what to do.
I've got three cassettes... and other than swapping them in and out of the radio... not sure what to do.

Heh, I should have realised that it enabled the lights being switched on. :embarrassed:
And yes, already found the book and knew about the notes. But it didn't seem to work when I tried to play the piano... I'm assuming because I don't have the second gear?

Yes, I am still missing that gear, too.

Seems like we both need to wait for someone else to "push" us in the correct direction now   (nod)

Thanks Tinytim, that was all I needed. Went on and finished the game in around 3 minutes after that. :)
