If all else fails, the people over at Adventure Gamers might have an idea.

Yes, to have any detail at all would help a LOT.

You're welcome.
I was lucky, I replayed the game only a year ago.

I played that game not that long ago, but I don't know if I would call it "luck". The graphics were pretty, but the interface felt a bit unpolished and the ending was just plain weird. :)

(Though I hear later releases replaced the ending with something slightly more traditional.)

hehe, same here.
Furthermore the key puzzles were all but epic/captivating.

I own the european version edited by Sirtech, were some bug were fixed, and the ending rewrote.
You're probably referring to the older version by Telstar where the hero's name is Goodthorpe instead of Quicktorpe.

The one I have says "TELSTAR Electronic Studios presents" at the beginning, and the main character is named Quickthorpe. The ending I get is the same one as in this YouTube movie. (Though unlike that one, I do get music over the end credits.)

I've heard vague references to the revised ending, but I've never actually seen it.
