Popeye

Popeye

You need to demonstrate your love for Olive Oyl by collecting 25 hearts and taking them back to her at home. While on your Quest, Olive’s love, shown by the lovemeter, slowly fades, so you must keep returning to renew her love with hearts. When she has all 25 you will be rewarded!

Collect spinach for recovery for when you are knocked over. Collect keys to open doors. Each key fits a particular door. Collect other items. They’re all essential. No more than eight items can be carried. As well as walking, climbing etc, you can also move “forwards” or “backwards” through “layers” to take you in front of or behind objects, through doorways and to avoid hazards. “UP” can mean “climb a rope” or “climb up steps” or “move back”, depending on where you are. All moving objects except Olive are dangerous, and will knock you down if you’re on their “layer”. They can pass harmlessly in front or behind you but Bluto has a nasty habit of changing layer. Some of them are dangerous AND helpful!
