CD-i Cheats/walkthroughs

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

CD-i Cheats/walkthroughs

Post by davcrag » Tue Aug 30, 2005 6:12 pm

There used to be a CD-i hotline you could call when you got stumped on a game. The people who worked for the CD-i hotline had books which would allow them to tell you exactly what the walkthrough was for almost any CD-i game.
Anyone have any copies of these books that can be posted on the web?

Since there aren't that many cheats / walkthroughs on the web, maybe now is the time to start.

Maybe a new forum can be started on this web site that would do just that!

Several people here (including me) have copies of those books; they used to be available from the Dutch "CD-i Gold Club". I'll have to make a list some day.

If somebody wants to scan them, you're welcome but right now I don't have the time...

Some of the books aren't really useful because they refer to level maps that are not included.

I just made this list:

ATLANTIS THE LAST RESORT (5 PAGES)
BRAINDEAD 13 (3 PAGES)
BURN CYCLE (22 PAGES)
CREATURE SHOCK (8 PAGES)
CRIME PATROL (4 PAGES)
DIMO'S QUEST (?? PAGES)
DRAGON'S LAIR (14 PAGES)
DRAGON'S LAIR I (9 PAGES)
ESCAPE FROM CYBER CITY (13 PAGES)
FLASHBACK (28 PAGES)
HOTEL MARIO (31 PAGES)
INCA (7 PAGES)
INVASION FROM PLANET SKYRON (28 PAGES)
KINGDOM SHADOAN (23 PAGES)
KINGDOM: THE FAR REACHES (17 PAGES)
LASERLORDS (45 PAGES)
LEMMINGS (4 PAGES)
LITIL DIVIL (35 PAGES)
LOST EDEN (18 PAGES)
LUCKY LUKE (16 PAGES)
MAD DOG MCGREE (3 PAGES)
MAD DOG MCGREE II (15 PAGES)
MARCO POLO (10 PAGES)
MEGAMAZE (73 PAGES)
MERLIN'S APPRENTICE (12 PAGES)
MYST (16 PAGES)
SCOTLAND YARD (3 PAGES)
SECRET MISSION (33 PAGES)
SEVENTH GUEST (56 PAGES)
SPACE ACE (17 PAGES)
THE APPRENTICE (15 PAGES)
THE LAST BOUNTY HUNTER (6 PAGES)
XPLORA: PETER GABRIEL (7 PAGES)
ZELDA'S ADVENTURE (53 PAGES)

These manuals have varying degrees of usefulness; for example the Dimo's Quest manual (which I'm unable to locate at present, hence the missing page count) constantly refers to specific points on level maps that aren't included in the document.

Did anyone ever scan these in yet? If not, I wouldn't mind doing it! After all the CD-i magazines, I'm sure to be the fastest scanner of the West! :)

I have them all in electronic format. I'm not sure if the physical versions had any pretty pictures or anything different but I assume they are all the same thing.

Hello,

I am a french retrogamer who recently disovered the joys of the CD-I system, and I am very interested in these "books".

Does anyone still have hard or soft copies of them (or at least of some of them) ?

I searched the web forthese books but couldn't find anything. I think many people would be grateful il they could have access to these files.

Does anyone still have these somewhere to share with everyone? If they need to be scanned in, I'll be happy to.
