    *******************Casper Walkthrough************************
    
    
         This is a simple FAQ/walkthrough for the Casper game for the 
    Playstation.  I bought it for my little brother some years ago and recently 
    saw that there was a bounty issued for it! I decided then and there to create 
    an alter-ego: Boba Faqq - the FAQ bounty hunter.  As I played through the 
    game I kinda began to like it.  It's a clever little puzzle game that becomes 
    awfully addicting.  If you have any comments, suggestions or complaints 
    please email me at soehlt@union.edu.   I will be happy to acknowledge them.

    Walkthrough Introduction:
    
         At times during this walkthrough, if you follow it step-by-step, it will 
    seem like there is no organization to my writing.  THIS IS NOT TRUE.  Casper 
    is the type of game where certain doors, rooms, etc. will not open until a 
    certain time in the game.  That is why there are times where you will be zig-
    zagging back and forth across the house. Just stick with it and if you are 
    loking for a certain key or whatever I suggest you use the "Find" option 
    under the "Edit" menu.  It helped me even while I was writing this!!!
    
    Walkthrough:
    
         After the very choppy and short intro movie, the menu screen will 
    appear.  Select "New Game" from the list of options.  After another short, 
    this time still-frame movie, the first act begins.
    
      Act I: Find Tokens of Friendship
    
         You start in the main foyer.  Pick up the food in front of you.  This 
    food will act as your health and your morph energy for the rest of the game.  
    Go to the lower left room and pick up the iron key.  Now go back to the foyer 
    and into the lower right room.  Go up a room and get the food.  Return to 
    foyer.  Go into the room in the upper left, use the iron key, go right, get 
    the iron and gold keys.  Make a mental note of the green door.you'll be back 
    soon enough.  Hit switch on wall causing a painting to move. Return to foyer 
    and go into the upper right room.  Pick up the brass key in front of the 
    chest and open it to get another brass key.  The picture frame of your uncles 
    will have moved revealing a switch.  Hit it and go through the newly opened 
    door.  Pick up the food and the two iron keys.  Open the chest but back up 
    quickly because one of your uncles will pop out.  This chest trick will come 
    in handy a lot during the beginning of the game.  In the chest is a piece of 
    the painting in the foyer.  Open the chest in the hall on the way back to the 
    foyer (using the chest trick) to get a weight.  In the foyer, go back to the 
    lower left and use the key to go through the door.  Hit the switch on the 
    wall to move the wall and go through.  Pick up the brass key and piece of 
    painting.  Examine the armor to open gate.  Go through to get two sandwiches 
    and an iron key. Go to the room to the right and use key.  Go in, pick up 
    iron key, use the chest trick to get a painting piece and leave.  Now use the 
    weight on the sparkling piece of ground in front of the door to get the final 
    piece of the painting.  Go back to the foyer and place all the pieces in the 
    frame to get the wisp morph.  Now you can travel through the vents!  
         Return to the lower right room, pick up food and keys and hit the 
    switch.  Go back to the room where you got the first painting piece and go 
    through the open door.  Hit the switch on the wall to reveal a parchment.  
    Make note of the arrangement of the armor on this parchment.  Now go through 
    the vent to the left hit the switch and return through the vent.  Go down the 
    hall, arrange the armor the way the clue said to, and go through the new 
    door, picking up the food as you go.  Go through the door to the south of the 
    row of armor.  Go to first lower room and examine the bookshelf to get the 
    present for Dr. Harvey.  Now go to the upper room and open the chest to get a 
    brass key.  Be sure to get the iron key in this room as well.  Go south down 
    the hall and use a key on the locked door.  Go up and get the sandwich off 
    the table (remember this room).  Go through the vent and into the bedroom to 
    get a weight.  Go through south door and move chair to open door to the 
    right.  Use the weight in the hall in front of the armor to open hall.  Pick 
    up lots of food and the two keys and open the chest to get painting piece.  
    Go through the door and hit the left and middle switches.  Now go to the hall 
    south of the room where you got the book and hit the new switch.  Travel 
    right down this same hall till you see another switch.  Hit that too.  It 
    opens the gate to the garden in this hall.  Go into the garden and head to 
    the right.  Pick the rose (gift for Kat) and go south to get the gold from 
    the fountain.  Now head left to get a painting piece.  Return to the foyer.  
    Go up the right staircase.  Pick up the food heading left down the hall.  Go 
    up into Kat's room.  Float toward them to initiate sequence which ends the 
    first act.
    
      Act II: Assemble The Lazarus
    
         You now need to build the Lazarus.  Take the camera and key off the bed 
    and get the perfume and painting piece from the dresser.  Leave the bedroom.
    Go through the vent to the right of Kat's hallway and pick up a lot of food.  
    Go through the vent to the right to get even more food.  Hit the switch in 
    this room, quickly go up the stairs to get the key, and then go back through 
    the vent to return to the upstairs hallway.  Go back to the foyer and into 
    the lower left room.  Go through the far left door.  Avoid Fatso in the next 
    room and go through the northern door into the dining area.  Pick up the
