    Introduction
    
    Hello everybody, It has been a long time since i wrote something,
    i have been on holiday for while so i like to apologize that e-mail
    questions have been answered so slowly..
    
    I wrote this walkthrough because i bought Anachronox and found out that it
    is one of the best adventure/rpg games available currently and the other
    reason was that there aren?t many walkthroughs on internet of this game...
    
    
    For little misc. info this walkthrough is based on Anachronox version
    1.1
    
    =====================================================================
    
    Anachronox Story
    
    The first artifacts were found about three hundred years ago. Left by some
    long-dead alien race, strange mysterious devices were found all over the
    galaxy. Dubbed Mysterium Technology (or "MysTech" for short), these ancient
    machines are considered prized collectables, even though their purpose has
    never been fully understood.
    
    Perhaps left behind by the same mysterious race, interstellar travel proved
    possible by planet-sized spheres in space called Senders. By flying toward
    one of the spikes on its surface, a ship is shot through a hyperspace tunnel,
    and can travel across the boundless reaches of space to another Sender.
    Senders have become the hubs of lucrative trade and galactic civilization.
    At the center of the universe lay Sender One, and inside the shell of this
    titanic Sender floated the city of Anachronox.
    
    Theory has it that Anachronox was once home to millions of quarantined aliens
    who slowly died of some sort of horrible plague (Anachronox literally means
    "poison from a previous time"), leaving this city to fall to ruins, to be
    taken over by the refuse of the galaxy as the center of their nefarious
    dealings. Here our story begins
    
    Sylvester "Sly" Boots sat in Rowdy's, a seedy bar on the seediest street in
    a section of Anachronox called "the Bricks". After being beat up for not
    paying off a debt in time, Boots realizes he's gotta get a job or he's dead
    meat. He gets work as a bodyguard, hired by an old man named Grumpos. They
    travel to a planet, which suddenly splits in half! Boots is thrown into a
    large galactic mystery of who is trying to crush our universe and why. Soon
    Sly is joined by his lackey robot, an old flame turned mercenary, his
    holographic secretary, and a renegade scientist on a journey across six
    planets, trying to find the answer....
    
    
    =====================================================================
    
    Characters
    
    Information in this section is taken from official Anachronox website.
    
    Sylvester " Sly " Boots [ Main Character ]
    ===========================================
    
    Age 29
    Weight: 195
    Height: 6'1"
    Eyes: Blue-green
    Hair: Dark brown
    Skin: Slightly swarthy-white
    Weapons: Guns.
    World Skill: PickLock
    
    Sly Boots is a private eye with an office on the city-planet Anachronox. He's
    a regular at "Rowdy's", a bar in the seediest section of an already seedy
    section of the city called "The Bricks". If you ever need his services, check
    the storage room upstairs. It's his office.
    
    He's bold, brash, overconfident, and thinks everyone likes him. He fancies
    himself a ladies' man, but really isn't.
    
    He claims to have held a lot of jobs and be proficient at everything, but
    he actually learned just enough to get him into trouble.
    
    His main friend is a Personal Android Lackey he's had since age nine. PAL-18
    is the only one who can stand him, and that's because he has to.
    
    Sly's only other consistent "friend" comes in the form of a Cordicom
    LifeCursor, a floating mechanical arrow that accompanies him from case to
    case. Inside the LifeCursor lives his holographic secretary, Fatima Doohan.
    She keeps track of his quests and other day-to-day activities, all with a
    heavy dose of attitude. She was his real, flesh-and-bone secretary until she
    was killed in an accident two years ago. Boots digitized her, and now she's
    bitter about living the rest of her "life" in servitude.
    
    Boots ran away from home at age 17. He did odd jobs, playing mechanic, handyman,
    and ambulance driver before working as a photographer for a private detective
    on Cordica. He changed his name from Silvestro Bucelli when he started up
    his own detective agency in a ritzy area of Anachronox. When his practice
    went south, he wound up as more of a nefarious delivery/bodyguard agency,
    with the occasional detective job.
    
    But don't feel too bad for him. He's a jerk.
    
    
    
    Grumpos Matavastros
    ====================
    
    Age: 71
    Weight: 250
    Height: 4'11"
    Eyes: Blue
    Hair: White-Gray
    Skin: Pale Gray
    World Skill: Yammer
    
    Scholar, outdoorsmen, eccentric recluse, and renaissance man, Grumpos
    Matavastros is also one of the hairiest men in the galaxy. Former curator
    of the MysTech Museum on Anachronox, he now devotes his life to the study
    of MysTech--ancient alien artifacts mysteriously scattered across the
    galaxy.
    
    He's always cranky, and rarely laughs, unless something excruciatingly
    painful happens to someone else.
    
    Despite a chaotic upbringing, Grumpos never had problems defending himself
    against childhood bullies with his trusty staff. Given to him by his combat
    mentor, his great-grandfather Aloysius Matavastros, his staff has been by
    his side for fifty years. All manner of staffheads have graced the top of
    the weathered walking stick, which he cherishes like a member of his family.
    
    A notorious pack-rat, Grumpos pays for a roof-access apartment where he has
    constructed a corrugated metal workshop. Inside, he continues his obsession
    with MysTech. In his spare time, he plays mumblety-peg and tries to solve
    the mysteries of the universe.
    
    Did we mention he's as hairy as a hound dog's patoot?
    
    
    
    
    PAL - 18
    =========
    
    
    Age: Activated 20 years ago
    Weight: 40
    Height: 3'
    Eyes: Glowing Yellow
    Metal: Gray-white
    World Skill: CompTalk
    
    On his ninth birthday, shortly after the death of his father, a wide-eyed
    Silvestro Bucelli ripped off the wrapping paper on his only gift. Inside,
    he found a gleaming PAL-18 unit.
    
    Built by Cordikids Toys, this Personal Android Lackey (Model 18) was to serve
    as his friend, servant, and baby sitter for the next twenty years. Despite
    suffering through Sly's tumultuous childhood, and misplaced adolescent
    aggressions, PAL-18 has remained his dutiful and loyal friend. PAL doesn't
    have a choice.
    
    Cordicom recently released a PAL-21 model. Toy enthusiasts agree that though
    the new features do make it a better all-around lackey bot, it lacks the bouncy
    charm and playful design of the PAL-18.
    
    Nevertheless, PAL tends to feel inferior to the new models.
    
    PAL-18 currently collects dust in a dark corner of Boots' office, out of
    batteries and out of mindshare in a detective's worldview gone sour.
    
    
    Doctor Rho Bowman
    ==================
    Age: 28
    Weight: 135
    Height: 5'9"
    Eyes: Brown
    Hair: Dark Brown
    Family: Gerald Bowman, 65. Valeta Bowman, 66.
    World Skill: Analyze
    
    When Dr. Rho Bowman's controversial book, MysTech Awake!, first hit the
    SenderNet feeds two years ago, it was an immediate success. Eschewing
    technical jargon for layman aesthetics, its espousal of radical science with
    a subtext of spiritualism struck an immediate chord. The book was widely
    interpreted as a metaphor for the awakening of self by a generation of people
    looking for answers.
    The scientific community hated it. Not just for her particular brand of
    populist prose, but for stating her theories were proven based on one
    unreplicated experiment.
    
    Criticized for peddling bad science for profit, Rho was branded a "heretic"
    by the Scientifica Association and cut off from all her major funding. With
    her career in the scientific community was over after an effective smear
    campaign, she disappeared into obscurity.
    The daughter of an acclaimed astrophysicist and a respected mechanical
    engineer, Rho spent her formative years traveling wherever her parents were
    lecturing that given week. Her entire life, she has never felt that she
    belongs anywhere.
    
    She is intelligent, well-spoken, compassionate, straightforward, and
    determined.
    
    
    Paco " El-Puno " Estrella
    ==========================
    
    Alias: The Fist
    Place of Birth: Crystopolis, Krapton
    Group Affiliation: None
    Base of Operations: Casa de Rage, Krapton
    First appearance: Krapton Comics #12
    World Skill: RageMight
    
    
    Krapton Comics were a line of superhero comic books based on the exploits
    of real-life superheroes from planet Krapton. Rage of the Fist was their
    flagship title until lagging sales and a general disinterest in super heroes
    put Krapton Comics out of business.
    
    With his enormous fists, Paco was capable of busting through barriers, and
    clobbering opponents with his powerful RageMight punch. He also had the power
    of flight, although there have been rumors that he's recently lost the
    ability.
    
    Highlights include: Rage of the Fist #3 (First appearance of scientist
    sidekick, Dr. Hush-Hush); and Rage of the Fist #32 (First appearance of super
    villain Rictus, who would become his chief nemesis).
    
    Back issues available through Cordicom Comic Book Warehouse.
    
    
    Stiletto Anyway
    ================
    Age: 25
    Weight: 120
    Height: 5'7"
    Eyes: Brown
    Hair: Dark brown (now dyed purple)
    Ethnic background: Chinese-Brazilian
    Weapons: Knives
    World Skill: ThrowLoonie
    
    Stiletto's past is shrouded in secret. This is all we know: She is bold,
    confident, magnetic, devil-may-care, and she travels light.
    
    Rumors have floated by -- some say she was seen on Sender Station. Last most
    folks knew, she was slumming around Cordica.
    
    Some say she was on Anachronox. Whenever someone knew for sure, she was gone.
    
    A steel glare and a shift of the hip convey she is not taking crap from anybody.
    
    A turn of sharpened heel, a tilt of a polished knife blade keep all at a
    distance.
    
    And that's how she likes it.

    Genaral Info / Features
    
    Anachronox ("uh-NAK-ruh-nox") is a 3rd person, 3D role-playing game (RPG)
    using the heavily-modified Quake 2 engine (32-bit graphics, particle system,
    spline-based camera scriptor, APE programming language). The player controls
    up to three characters at a time, from an eventual cast of seven, exploring
    the galaxy. Gameplay is exploration and interaction of the environment, melee
    with various galactic foes, and discovery of unique weapons and items that
    aid you on your quest. You can choose different characters to play and
    different ways to do things, leading you to different events and areas in
    the game. Each character has different Battle Skills with unique effects,
    and World Skills they can use to access places and info the other characters
    can't. For instance, one character can talk to computers, another can
    "Yammer" people, annoying them so much by blathering on that they provide
    the info you need!
    
    Exciting features include the third-person camera; real 3D battle sequences
    in context; 2D and 3D mini-games; lipsynched dialogue and facial expressions
    (mesh-deformation) during in-engine cinematics; multi-source blended
    directional vertex model lighting; procedural models; procedural textures
    (interform, etc); environment mapping; specular highlighting; various
    multitexture effects (shaders, etc); robust, powerful particle system
    (editor shipped in box); epic storyline with a rollercoaster of emotion; and
    tons of amazing weapons effects.
