Once an acorn, now an oak...

Postby Breadfi5h » Sun Nov 05, 2017 10:17 pm

Hello, when I was a boy, some thirty-odd years ago, I began my computing journey with the humble electron. I loved it.
One of my favourite games was Citadel. I completed it, once! But not the crowns. Those pesky crowns thwarted me and haunted me for years. My boy (8) has now started playing it from a site I found and he loves it. It is a joy to see him familiarising himself with keys where he would normally click and swipe.
The big thing is though, it is hard. I want to be able to complete it again, for me, including the crowns. Anyone know of any invincibility cheat? My skills are not quite as deft as they once were...

Welcome! :D

Maybe the Citadel cheat on the cheat listings page of the Stairway To Hell could be useful with the Play It Again Sam version of Citadel from the ADFS disk image page.
