Imagine Burger Time except with soap suds instead of sausages and irons instead of fried eggs. And boredom instead of gameplay.... you've got Mr. Wong's ethnically stereotyped laundry. A co-production for Amsoft with Artic.

Inlay Text

Mr. Wong is in trouble. Not only has he got to collect his laundry but he is being chased by a 'possessed' iron, a sack of laundry and even the soap suds are joining in to stop him.

The only person who can help him is you, and the only protection you have is 'starch'. Firing starch stiffens and stuns the hunters temporarily, giving you time to get away. But use it sparingly - remember its only for emergencies. Mr Wong has to pick up the clothing one piece at a time, he has no washing basket so it's all too much to carry to the laundry chute. Each time be very careful and remember don't get caught and don't waste the starch or it will be the end for Mr. Wong and his laundry. When your starch supply has been exhausted after some time, a new box appears which you must collect straight away before it vanishes.

Cheat Mode

Simply load the wongs.bas loader program into memory and add any or all of the following pokes to line 10002

Other useful Pokes I found which make the game easier are:

POKE &491F,0 ' Limited Movement or Freezes Monsters

POKE &4954,0 ' Limits Monsters moving up the Ladder

All of these Pokes were found to disable this type of routine:
