A walkthrough of the ZX Spectrum game, Acolyte. An unreleased game by David Bradley and Dean Hickingbottom, it was recovered in 2009...This game puts you in the shoes of an unfortunate little fellow by the name of "Glut". He has been robbed of his human form by the evil wizard "Borderon" and locked inside a castle. You must try to escape by collecting valuable gems which are scattered throughout the many rooms of the castle. Collecting gems will magically fill a glass phial. When the phial is full it will be exchanged for a golden key. The key fits a chest which is hidden somewhere within the castle and when unlocked, pieces of a magical locking mechanism are revealed.
The locking mechanism must be taken to the main entrance and fitted to the huge oak door that can be found there. Once this is achieved, you are presented with a enlarged display of the locking mechanism. It is promptly scrambled before your eyes and you must then shuffle it to restore the lock in order to open the door.
Due to the high difficulty level an infinite energy POKE was used for this.

Recorded using "rollback", a feature of the emulator which allows you to mark a point, which you can then roll back to later if you get into difficulty, and try again.
