You follow the hobo's map into the library across the street from the shady back alley. The map directs you down a flight of stairs and into a series of catacombs, which are inexplicably full of oil up to chest-level. Suddenly, the oil ignites! You run/swim through the oil-filled catacombs, barely escape the flames, jumping into a handy mine car without a moment to spare.

You rattle down a rickety set of tracks on the mine car while unseen foes shoot arrows at you from either side. You hit a barricade at the end of the tracks and are catapulted into a narrow tunnel. You hear a noise behind you and look back to see a gigantic bowling ball rolling after you. You run faster but see a huge pit gaping up ahead...

You try to leap over the pit, but see that you're not going to be able to reach the outcropping of rock on the other side. If only you had something with which to extend your reach...

You fall into the pit and the bowling ball lands on top of you. You pass out and wake up back in the alley, stinking of Mad Train wine.

You hear a noise behind you and look back to see a gigantic bowling ball rolling after you. You run faster but see a huge pit gaping up ahead...

You lash out blindly with your whip and catch a rock on the other side of the pit. You swing across and the bowling ball crashes into the oubliette behind you. *Whew!*

Beyond the hole, you encounter the Altar, atop which sits the Scalpel of Dr. Hobo.

The scalpel is about the same shape as a piece of asparagus, and it weighs about the same as a knife. You'll need to replace it with something that weighs and is shaped the same if you want to escape the deadly traps that guard it.

Unfortunately, you have no appropriate item. You'll need to find something that combines the properties of a knife and a stalk of asparagus...

Luckily, your asparagus knife is just the thing. You place it atop the Altar, and grab the Scalpel at the exact same moment.

No sweat!

References

  • Using this map provides a plethora of references from Indiana Jones films.
  • Additionally, the name 'Dr. Hobo' may be in reference to the VGCats character Dr. Hobo, who carries a scalpel, but who is not, in fact, a real doctor.
