In this video I have a partial (roughly 25%) walkthrough of the game using the solution provided by Kukulcan at CPCPOWER. 
So with the EXACT solution this takes 21 minutes - imagine how long the full game would take when all you had/have is the manual!

Gripe - the in-game graphics (made using NEOchrome on the Atari ST and then converted to other home computers) ) are good but even in 1987 the loading screen could have been improved. 
A nice touch is the ability to scroll the graphics up/down using the cursor keys at any time thereby increasing the text area - useful if you forget your last few actions.
Another nice touch is the option to scroll through the palette to select a text colour that suits you - especially useful when you could be playing this for hours.
