After the presentation, a menu appears offering three options:
After starting the game, let's see the keys used:
The first thing to do is to select a person. Select a person moving the cursor over the characters. Select one by pressing "Enter".
As you move the cursor over a person, his/her characteristics are marked with red right below the menu.
After choosing your person, the MSX picks up a secret person and the game starts. Close dialogs using "Enter".
In this version, whenever MSX asks you about your person, the answer is performed automatically.
In your turn, a yellow cursor appears on the question menu located at the bottom of the screen. The menu is shown in the next figure.
Available characteristics in the menu:
Use the arrows to navigate the menu and press "Enter" to confirm an option.
After asking MSX, he answers "Yes" or "No". After closing the dialog, the mark mode starts in order to you mark the persons that disagree that answer. For example, if you ask "The person is a man?" and the MSX says "No" means that his person is a woman. In that case, mark all the men to mark them.
By the time you are sure about the MSX's secret person, use the menu option 27. The mark mode is activated in order to allow you to choose a person to risk. Press "Enter" to confirm your choice.
In this game, you may risk a name without ending the game in case of failure.
