Hi Lurkio, I've decided to launch a pre-emptive strike on your resolve not to play LOL by sending you the map by email.

I've just checked my notes and I've got about 80% of the walkthrough completed, up to the point in part 3 where I was stuck on a couple of puzzles.
I'll send you that if you like. Trust me when I say it's another top drawer adventure.

Could you see if you have any literature regarding the game ? Another box cover scan would be great.

btw, now I understand why there's a hot dog in the game, you'd have to be barking to play it...

All I have is what's publicly available on everygamegoing.com or acornelectron.co.uk (which is where I got the What's Eeyore's cover art from).

Hi Lurkio, I've just sent you an email about a walkthrough for parts 1 and 2 (of 3) for this game.

I've finally solved one of the two remaining puzzles in this game, I now have the anemones from the nymph so have all the treasures !

I now just need the wave from the beach to complete the game..........

Dedication is the name of the game.....

Another breakthrough! I now have the wave, the last part of King Golly's missing barnet, but surprise, surprise, I can't take them all back to his chambers.

There's a teleporter but you can only carry the reddy teddy (more like ruddy teddy) with you, everything else gets dropped.

Oh well, once more unto the breach dear friends............

Congrats, fuzzel! This is a first -- there's no record of anyone having completely solved What's Eeyore's and Locks Of Luck before!

Many thanks for the trophy Lurkio !

I'm surprised no one's asked for a walkthrough / map......

I always just assume that CASA will definitely want walkthroughs and maps for any unsolved text adventures -- because that's the raison d'être of the site!

Yes. You can use the form within the game page on CASA, or message either iamaran or me as we both have rights to add stuff to CASA.

I will have the Locks of Luck walkthrough submitted to CASA by this time tomorrow.
As this has been a labour of love of mine over the last 18 months or so if anyone else has
played it I'd love to hear what they thought of it. Leenew and Lurkio dipped their toes in
at one stage but lost their nerve leaving me to manfully carry on on my own.
