Banana Apocalypse and the Rocket Pants of Destiny is a Z-machine version 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by Emily Short. This was an entry for Speed-IF Y.
You play as Grisham, an employee of "Rockets, Sprockets, and Pants" and you have a big date planned tonight with your favorite superhero, EnigmaGirl. But how are you going to get your pride and your prototype rocket pants out of the factory with MonkeyMan Shatner breathing down your neck?
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
> x desk. turn on desk. x pants. x Shatner.
> ask Shatner about pants. ask Shatner about me. n.
> x banana. take it. s.
> show banana to Shatner. n.
> x contraption. put banana in contraption. s.
> take pants. wear pants. s. (You go directly from the Escalator to...)
> turn on pants.
Your Front Yard
> x tree. climb tree. turn off pants. w.
Your Lovely Abode
> x table. x shower. take shower. look. z. x girl. kiss girl.
You have a choice of three endings:
> show pants to girl. (She absconds with them.)
*** Oops. ***
> z. (Don't show or give the pants; she'll leave in disgust.)
*** Oops. ***
> ask Shatner about girl. (He tells you she's bad news.)
*** You've narrowly escaped humiliating disaster! ***
This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
