Inca Walkthrough

Fighting Tips

Navigate through the asteroids to reach the planet. Don't fly too close to the asteroids. The gravitation of an asteroid will alter your course. You can shoot the asteroids, but it's not necessary. Keep your accelerator at full speed and dodge the asteroids as best you can.

Starship Canyon Battles.
Keep a close watch on your control panel and your navigation instruments. You must destroy the starfighters that are in front and behind you. You have to kill them before they reach the end of the trench or you will die. Stay at full speed and keep firing at the ships in front of you. If you pass starfighters, slow down and let them get just in front of you. Otherwise, they will attack you from behind.

Ship to ship dogfights.
Listen to your ship computer voice (with a DAC sound card) for tips on where the enemy is, target locking, and when to fire. Watch for blips on your radar. Be sure to save your torpedoes for combat against the large ships that will appear later in the game. Once you use up your torpedoes, they are gone for good and are not replenished. The large ships found later in the game are nearly impossible to defeat without them.

Spanish Warrior Mazes.
The mazes can be complex or simple. Click on the right mouse button after each move and note your position and direction. Watch out for Spanish warriors. Maps of the mazes are available. Please write or FAX the Sierra hint department to receive maps on the mazes. Please check your Inca game manual for the address and FAX number.

Tips on fighting Spanish warriors.
Aim your icon on the warrior's blasts first, then fire at the warrior. It is best to hit the warriors when they turn the side of their body toward you. When they face you, their armour protects them.
