Severed Heads - Instructions
Your Severed Heads package should include the following items:
o Severed Heads Disk #1
o Severed Heads Disk #2
First, before you start using the program, you should make a backup copy
of both disks. This program is not copy protected; so you may use the
standard AmigaDOS copy procedures (see your Amiga System manual for
details). Put the originals away in a safe place and only use the copies.
If something happens to the copy then recopy your original diskettes.
You are free to make as many copies as you need for archival purposes.
Severed Heads requires an Amiga 500/2000/3000 with at least 1 megabyte of
memory and one disk drive running Kickstart 1.2 or higher (Yes, it will
even work with Version 2.0).
To load Severed Heads, insert Disk#1 into drive DF0: and reboot system.
Program will boot automatically.

to move North, just type NORTH, or press N and return. You may move in
all of the standard directions: North, South, East, West, SouthEast,
SouthWest, Up, and Down.
Severed Heads has a parser of only 500 words. Thus, it is important that
the sentences remain simple. For example, when accessing the elevators
for the first time, you must:

english words will work. As a hint, be inquisitive.
