Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers
© 1991 Sierra On-Line
What do I do with pink rabbit?
You need to snare the hare -- you'll need his battery later.
You'll find a rope one screen east of the starting screen. Pick
it up and walk between the two large red columns in the upper
right side of the screen. Choose the rope from the inventory
window, and click the ROPE icon on the ground to use it. When
the bunny walks into the noose, click the HAND on the rope to
What am I supposed to do with the rope?
Use the rope to catch the rabbit. Pick it up and walk between
the two large red columns in the upper right side of the screen.
Choose the rope from the inventory window, and click the ROPE
icon on the ground to use it. When the bunny walks into the
noose, click the HAND on the rope to catch him.
What do I do with the skimmer?
Search the skimmer by clicking the HAND icon on it. Open the
glove box and click the EYE on the object inside. It's a Pocket
Pal terminal! Click the HAND to take it.
What should I do with the tank and the unstable ordnance?
You can't do anything with the tank itself, but you can take the
"unstable ordnance" from inside. I don't suggest it, though, it
How do I avoid the cyborg and the Security Droid?
The cyborg is really fairly harmless, and blind as a bat. Just
stay out of his way, and he'll leave you alone. If he gets near
you, he'll shriek to alert the Security Droid. There's no escape
from the Security Droid.
What about this Dome?
The dome is Sequel Police headquarters, among other things. You
can't get to the dome on foot. Later a ship will land, and you
can catch a ride up there.
Where else can I go?
You can't get into any of the buildings on the street. If you've
done everything you can on the street, it's time to go
underground. On the northeast corner of the intersection is a
sewer grate. Click the HAND icon on the grate to open it.
In the Sewers
What do I need from the Sanitation office?
Click the HAND icon on the desk blotter for an important
message. Don't forget to take the empty jar from the desktop!
How do I get out of the Sanitation office?
On the left side of the room is a door with a wheel on it. Click
the HAND icon on the wheel to open the door, then click the WALK
icon on the doorway to walk out.
What should I do in the sewer?
If you took the jar from the Sanitation office, use it to scoop
up some of the green slime. Choose the jar from the inventory
window, and walk around the sewer until the slime oozes out of
one of the grates. Quickly click the JAR icon on the slime, then
get away fast!
How do I get out of the sewer?
There's a ladder halfway down the west side of the sewer. Click
the hand on it to climb up. When you're looking out at the
street from under the manhole cover, wait for the spaceship to
land and the Sequel Police to disperse before clicking the WALK
icon on the street to exit your hiding place.
What about this spaceship?
The spaceship is the Sequel Police shuttle to and from the dome.
If you're quick, you can sneak aboard and get a ride up there.
Wait in the manhole until the Sequel Police disperse, then walk
to the ship. Click the HAND icon on the open area just below the
leg of the ship to get inside the landing gear compartment.
How can I open the door in the landing bay?
You can open the lock by pouring the green slime on it, but you
won't be able to get any further until later in the game.
How do I avoid getting shot by the Sequel Police?
You need to steal a timepod from this area, but you're going to
have to be sneaky about it. Wait for the second pod to land, and
for the pilot to get out and walk up-screen. Quickly click the
HAND icon on the pod to get in.
I'm in the timepod, but I don't know what to do!
The first thing you'll need is the User Identity Verification
Pirate Protection Program code. The U.I.V.P.P.P. is located in
Space Piston Magazine, in the Timebuster 2000SUX Road Test
article by Y. Hugh Iotta. Next, make a note of the symbols on
the little screen above the keypad -- those are the Xenon
coordinates, and you'll have to come back here later. Now punch
in six digits and press ENTER. Punch in six more and you're on
How do I avoid the Sequel Police?
The best way to avoid the Sequel Police is to exit your pod and
walk immediately to the far West side of the butte. After a
large, formidable shadow passes over the ground, walk back to
the pod and take the stairway down. There's a pterodactyl just
waiting to give you a lift.
What should I do in the nest?
You need to search the Sequel Policeman's body. Click the HAND
icon on the body.
How can I escape the nest?
To escape, click the WALK icon on the hole in the bottom right
side of the nest.
Help! I've been captured by the Latex Babes!
These are the famed Latex Babes of Estros. You leave one of them
at the altar in a future game, and they never forget a grudge.
I'm afraid there's no way out of this one, you'll have to go
with them. Click the WALK icon on the hatch to get in the sub.
How can I get rid of the Sea Slug?
When the slug's slimy tentacles are wrapped around your legs,
click the HAND icon on the button on the arm of the chair. See
those air tanks to the right of your chair? lick the HAND icon
on the air tank nearest you. As quickly as you can, choose the
air tank from your inventory window, and click the TANK icon on
the slug's mouth.
The Galaxy Galleria Mall
I just arrived at the mall. What do I do?
First pick up the AutoBucks card the Latex Babes dropped. Next,
you'll need some new clothes. From the top of the escalator, go
West on the walkway. Stop at the Big and Tall Alien store and
talk to the clerk. He's got just what you need.
I need some more money.
If you're dressed properly, go to Monolith Burger and talk to
the manager. He'll give you a job. Save your game at this point,
and earn as much money as you can. If you get fired, don't
restore, just go back in and get hired again. You need to earn
at least $26.00.
How can I use the AutoBucks card?
You'll need a clever disguise. Visit the Women's Clothing Store,
and talk to the clerk -- if you have enough money, he can help
you. When you're all dressed up, go back to the AutoBucks
machine and Clean House.
What should I do at the woman's clothing store?
If you have enough money, you can buy a clever disguise here to
fool the AutoBucks machine. Talk to the clerk, and he'll give
you everything you need.
What should I buy at the software store?
Look in the bargain bin. There are lots of fun things to see
here, but the only thing you need is the Space Quest IV hint
What hints do I need from the hint book?
There are two hints you'll need to complete the game. One is
under the question about the "stupid timepod", the other is
under the question about the Super Computer.
What do I do in the arcade?
Until you're finished at the mall, I don't advise wandering
around the arcade. You can play Ms. Astro Chicken, it's the
first game on the left side of the room. Be sure to approach it
from the left, and click the HAND icon on it. When you've done
everything you can here, come back and have a look around. Walk
to the right, rear of the arcade, and wait for the Sequel
Police. When they come, get out as fast as you can.
What should I buy at Radio Shock?
The item you need to buy from Radio Shock is the PocketPal
terminal adaptor plug. There are several different plugs
available, so before you buy one, you should know which one
you'll need. To find out, you have to get inside the dome on
Xenon and look carefully at the Super Computer terminal.
What can I do at Monolith Burger?
The manager at Monolith Burger would just love to give you a
job. To earn a few extra Buckazoids, take him up on his offer.
You'll need to earn at least $26.00. If you get fired, don't
restore, just go back in and get hired again.
What do I need to do before leaving the Galaxy Galleria Mall?
Before you leave the Galaxy Galleria mall, you should buy a new
Generic Space Hero suit from the Big & Tall men's clothing
store, get a job at Monolith Burger and earn $26.00, buy the
Space Quest IV hint book from the bargain bin at the software
store, buy a clever disguise from the women's clothing store,
and use the AutoBucks card to clean out Zondra's account.
I've done everything at the mall, but I can't get any further!
If you've done all you can at the mall, it's time to visit the
arcade. Walk to the right, rear of the arcade, and wait for the
Sequel Police to arrive. When they come, get out as fast as you
can by clicking the WALK icon on the bottom right side of the
How do I escape the Sequel Police?
Go to Skate-O-Rama and "swim" in the zero-gravity area, being
careful to avoid laser blasts from Sequel Police weapons. The
best way to ditch them is to start at the East entrance of
Skate-O-Rama, swim up, across the top, and down to exit on the
I've ditched the Sequel Police, what do I do next?
The next thing you need to do is swipe the timepod the Sequel
Police came in. When you exit Skate-O-Rama, head for the arcade.
Click the HAND icon on the timepod to enter it. Your next stop
is Ulence Flats; use the code found in the Space Quest IV hint
book to get you there. It's under the question about the Stupid
I've just arrived at Ulence Flats. What do I do?
Gee, isn't this place familiar? Well, Droids-B-Us is closed, and
so is Tiny's. The only place you need to go is the bar. Be
careful though, the place has really gone downhill since you
were here last.
How do I deal with the Monochrome Boys?
There's nothing you can do about the Monochrome Boys, except to
get back at them for what they did to you, and get them out of
the way for a few minutes. When they throw you outside, click
the HAND icon on their motorcycles. If you've already done this,
go about your business quickly and get off this planet. You're
in big trouble if they catch you now.
I've dealt with the Monochrome Boys. What do I do next?
Now that the Monochrome Boys are out of the way for a while, go
back into the bar and get the book of matches off the counter.
That's all you need from here.
How can I leave Ulence Flats?
Get back in your timepod and enter the coordinates for Xenon.
They were on the screen when you first stole the pod -- I hope
you wrote them down!
The Second Trip to Xenon
How do I open the locked door?
Pour the jar of slime on the lock to dissolve it, then click the
HAND icon on the door to open it.
I keep getting zapped by lasers in the tunnel! How can I get
The items you'll need to get through this tunnel are a book of
matches, and an old cigar butt. choose the matches from your
inventory window. Click the MATCHES icon on the cigar butt. Now
select the cigar butt from the window. Click on OK. Click the
EYE icon on the keypad to get a close up view. Now look at the
angles of each set of laser beams. The object is to enter the
correct rotation angle for each set, in order to place each in a
straight up and down position. With this accomplished, you can
walk through the tunnel unmolested.
What are the correct rotation angles for the lasers?
With the beams in the initial position (before you made any
attempts to adjust them), and the flashing bar in the top
window, press 156 on the keypad, and press ENTER. The second set
of beams can be adjusted from the initial position by entering
024 into the keypad. To adjust the last set of beams from the
initial position, enter 108 into the keypad.
What do I do once I have made it through the tunnel?
Now you're inside the Super Computer. If this is your first
visit to this location, you need to get in and get out as fast
as you can. You should be on a walkway. At intervals along this
walkway are little boxes. These are terminals for the Super
Computer. Click the EYE icon on the first terminal you see, and
take a good look at the close-up view. You'll need to buy the
PocketPal adaptor plug from Radio Shock that looks like the plug
you see here. If you've already been here once, and have the
correct plug, proceed to the hint section titled "Inside the
How do I avoid the droid?
If this is your first visit to this location, you can only avoid
the Security Droids by getting in and out of this area as fast
as you can. If you've already looked at the terminal, exit the
area the way you came in. If you haven't, return to the previous
menu and press 4 for a hint.
Where do I go from Xenon?
If you've been inside the Super Computer and taken note of the
shape of the terminal plug, you need to return to the Galaxy
Galleria Mall, and buy the correct adaptor from Radio Shock. The
correct coordinates were on the timepod screen before you left
Inside The Super Computer
What is my objective here?
Once inside the Super Computer, you need to use your PocketPal
to access the Super Computer. This way, you can monitor the
movements of the Security Droids and avoid them as you explore.
Your goals are to get to the Programming Chamber and start the
formatting sequence that will erase Vohaul from the Super
Computer, and to rescue your son, Roger Jr.
How do I use the Pocket Pal?
Choose the PocketPal terminal from the inventory window, then
click the POCKETPAL icon on one of the terminals along the
walkway. You should now see an overhead view of the area. The
flashing grey rectangle represents you, the flashing blue or
green octagon represents a Security Droid. Click on the POWER
button to exit this view, and continue along the walkway,
avoiding the path of the droid.
My Pocket Pal won't work!
You may have one of two problems. First, you need the battery
from the bunny. From the inventory window, click the EYE icon on
the bunny, then click the HAND icon on the battery. Now select
the battery, and click the BATTERY icon on the PocketPal. If
you've done this, and the PocketPal still won't work, you either
need to get an adaptor plug from Radio Shock, or to exchange the
plug you have for the correct one.
Where is the programming chamber?
From the tunnel door, walk one screen North, then one screen
West. Take the left stairway down to the next screen, wait for
the droid to appear on the right, then walk North again to the
top of the stairway. From here walk one screen East, one South,
and then proceed West to the programming chamber.
How do I get inside the programming chamber?
The correct code can be found in the Space Quest IV hint book,
under the question "I'm in a room outside the Programming
Chamber. . ."
What should I do in the programming chamber?
There are several icons on the screen, but only two are useful
to you; the DROID icon, and the BRAIN icon. First, point the
icon at the DROID icon, click the mouse button, drag the icon to
the toilet, and release the mouse button. This will disable the
Security Droids and make it easier for you to get around inside
the Super Computer. Next, point the icon at the BRAIN icon,
click the mouse button, drag the icon to the toilet, and release
the mouse button. This will initiate the formatting sequence
that will destroy Vohaul. The counter at the bottom left side of
the screen tells you how much time you have to rescue Roger Jr.
Whatever you do, DON'T put the SQ4 icon into the toilet!!
Where is Roger Jr.?
From the Programming Chamber, walk three screens East, one
screen North, then one screen West to the stairway. Take either
stairway down, and proceed West to the glass elevator. Arriving
at level 3, walk one screen North, one screen East, then North
into Vohaul's chamber.
How do I rescue Roger Jr.?
You can only rescue Roger Jr. if you have initiated the
formatting sequence. If you have done this, walk toward the edge
of the platform, and a bridge will extend to Roger Jr.'s
platform. Walk across the bridge. Use the mouse or Arrow keys to
fight Roger Jr, and force him back into the beam. When he's
caught in the beam again, climb down the ladder on the left side
of the platform. When you come back up, the disk will be in your
inventory. Click the DISK icon on the disk drive, and a menu
will appear. Click on BEAM UPLOAD to upload Vohaul into the
Super Computer. Click on DISK UPLOAD to upload Roger Jr. into
the Super Computer. Click on Roger Jr.'s name, then on BEAM
DOWNLOAD. Roger Jr. will be downloaded into his body, and Vohaul
will be formatted.
