Rendezvous with Rama walkthrough

RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA 
Telarium 
Walk Through by Dorothy Millard (PC Version) 
 
 
Scenario 
Rendezvous with Rama is a four-sided, high-resolution science fiction game  
based on the Arthur C. Clarke novel.  You land on a huge artificial  
satellite which you must explore and where you hope to find fuel for your  
spaceship.  You leave your ship and enter Rama accompanied by an intelligent  
chimp from your crew. 
 
Notes 
1. In this walk through the autopilot is used to land the ship.  If you  
wish, however, instead of letting Will land the ship on autopilot you can do  
it yourself by way of an arcade game. 
2. When speaking to Goldie you must say, for example GOLDIE, COME or GOLDIE,  
PUSH BLUE BUTTON - with the comma and on the one line. 
3. Triangular door colours: 
     i)   Black changes (white, blue, green) 
     ii)  White changes (black, blue, green) 
     iii) Blue changes (black, white, green) 
     iv)  Green changes (black, white, blue) 
4. The coloured sidewalks go to: 
     i)   Red goes back to flower door. 
     ii)  Grey goes to London. 
     iii) Maroon goes to New York. 
     iv)  Black goes to Paris. 
     v)   White goes to Moscow
