Manual for the Amiga Computer Version
The Labyrinth of Time™
is an adventure game set in a wondrous maze
created by the spirit of Daedalus, master
craftsman of the ancient world. This maze
is more than it seems and stretches through both space and
time. Daedalus was forced to build this
labyrinth by the power-mad King Minos, who hopes to use its expansive

Installing the Game
Although The Labyrinth of Time can be
played directly from the game CD-ROM without any installation, we
recommend that you install the game on your computer's hard drive if
there is sufficient space. The game requires 210MB of hard drive
space to install. The instructions below detail how to both play the
game without installing and how to install the game, if you choose.
1. Place The Labyrinth of Time disc in your Amiga’s CD-ROM drive. Double-click on the LABYRINTH disc icon to reveal the LABAMIGA drawer.
2. To play with game without installing on a hard drive, double-click on the LABAMIGA drawer and then double-click on large THE_LABYRINTH icon to start the game. The game CD must be in the drive at all times while playing the game without installing on a hard drive.
3. To install the entire game on your
hard drive, drag the LABAMIGA drawer
to your hard drive. Double-click on the LABAMIGA drawer on the hard drive
and then double-click on large THE_LABYRINTH
icon to start the game. Once installed the game can be played without
from an Archive
1. Use the appropriate software to
de-archive the installation archive into the directory of your choice.

unzip, pkzip, WinZip or the equivalent. LABAMIGA.tar.gz requires tar
(and possibly gzip) or the equivalent.

The Map Display
This screen shows the locations you
have visited. Clicking on a location will show its name. Your current
location is marked with a glowing red
arrow. A black arrow
indicates a passage between levels. Sometimes areas are shown as a
large white block -- click on the block to view the interior of the
area. Use the Up and Down arrows to move between levels or exit the
interior of an area.
The first image above shows the screen
that allows you to select whether to save or load
a game. The second image shows the Save Game screen -- the Load Game
screen is similar. There are 9 saved game slots available per storage
device. A checkmark indicates the slot contains a saved game. You can
save over an existing saved game. Loading or saving can be aborted by
clicking the right mouse button.
There are some actions you can perform
in The Labyrinth of Time that will create a situation where you cannot
successfully complete the game. If you think you have become hopelessly
stuck, you should load a previously saved game and continue from there.
This implies that you should save the game occasionally just to be sure
that you can finish the game without starting over.
To help avoid getting stuck, we offer a
few helpful hints. Knowing these hints should not adversely affect your
enjoyment of the game, but please skip ahead to the Keyboard Shortcut
section if you don't want any help.
You start the game with only one quarter
the change from buying your subway ticket. Be careful how you use this
as it may be difficult to acquire more.
Wouldn't it be terrible to be in that
rustic jail cell without a way out? We think so.
There are two exits from the subway
train, one an open passageway, the other sealed. Be sure you have a
light source before you investigate what is behind the sealed door
(once you unseal it, of course).

When playing the game from the CD-ROM, occasionally the music repeats
itself (like a stuck phonograph or audio CD). How can I avoid this?
Answer: This best way to avoid this is to install the game on your computer's hard drive.

Answer: Point your web browser to The Labyrinth of Time web site (http://www.wyrmkeep.com/labyrinth).
