HINTS & TIPS TO BORROWED TIME by Math Claessens

I  have noticed that a lot of people got stuck with an  adventure 
called "Borrowed Time" from Activision. Well, here are some hints 
& tips so you can play it a bit further (maybe 'til the end)...

You start the adventure like this:
OPEN  DRAWER  - GET CHECK - E - E - E - HIDE BEHIND CHAIR -  N  - 
LOCK  DOOR  -  BREAK WINDOW - GET GLASS - ENTER  WINDOW  -  CLIMB 
CABLE - CUT CABLE - ENTER WINDOW
So the beginning is made.
Here are some further things you need to know:
ALL YOU FIND IS USED ONLY ONCE
IN THE BAR YOU MUST THREATEN THE PEOPLE TWICE WITH YOUR GUN
BY THE DOCTER SAY YES
BY MAVIS UNTIE MAVIS AND GET ALL
BY RITA: ON THE TABLE ARE A CANDLE AND MATCHES,WITH THESE YOU FREE 
YOURSELF
IN THE KITCHEN LOOK STOVE
MOVE STOVE
USE THE TUBE THERE FOR YOUR HAND
THE TUBE YOU HAVE FOUND BY MAVIS
BY THE CAR-PARK SHOW PISTOL
WHEN THE POLICE ARIVES: WAIT
SHOW THE POLICE ALL YOU HAVE FOUND IN THE GAME

So  that's all for now.  I have the solution to "Borrowed  Time", 
but  I haven't had the time to put it on paper (sorry,  on  disk) 
yet. Maybe next time!
