Tammy Jo Superstar
In Carmel Games' point-and-click puzzler Tammy Jo Superstar, the titular big-haired country belle works in a hotel that's going downhill fast, largely because Neel, the in-house singer who only got the job as a favour to his mother, is... kind of the opposite of good. Tammy Jo's convinced she could do a better job, and her boss gives her his blessing to do whatever she can to make Neel leave. Easier said than done since everyone in the hotel seems to want her to do something for them, and as you'd expect from a point-and-click adventure game, even simple tasks can get a little... weird. Just click around to interact and travel through the hotel. The cursor will change when you mouse over something you can use or talk to, and clicking an item in your inventory will highlight it for use. Tammy Jo Superstar is weird in a good way, and getting the egotistical Neel (actual show name: Kneel Before Neel) off the stage is going to take some work, but with your help, Tammy Jo can turn her dreams into a reality.
can't wait for the walkthrough :)
A nice ten minute diversion!
As much as I like Carmel Games (and I really do), sometimes less is more. I'm talking about the "This doesn't work" voice-over that's kind of their trademark in all their games. It just gets annoying after awhile, especially when you're just clicking on random objects to see what can be done with them. I don't really need to hear it every single time. Same goes for entering the stage room and hearing the singer sing on every entrance. At least you can click it away, though.
Otherwise, I do enjoy these little games.
It's often not quite funny enough for it to be worth it.
guess not huh? ok.
where are you stuck paul?
I just needed it for the whole game. I can neer get started without one.
Wondering if I should leave a walkthrough
please do bluemoons :)
here yo go paul
moose video walkthroughs are hard to keep up weith. I prefer text ones.
Huh. That was a little strange. Here's a few helping hints:
Mouse over everything to see if you can take it or not. You'll know when the arrow turns into a hand.
you really should pick up everything possible
You pretty much have to do three things:
clean up the cobweb in room 2
how would you clean it up?
maybe with a feather duster?
how could you make one with, say, random crap you'd find in a seedy motel?
make pecan candy
you'll need some pecans
and some chocolate goo
and something in which to wrap your concoction
get rid of Neel
maybe with something you receive from a happy guest
in conjunction with some juicy gossip that a grateful coworker spills
You need chocolate goo, but the hot chocolate machine dispenses chocolate goo AND hot water.
How can you get just goo?
I am having trouble finding
something to glue my bid feathers to my stick to make a feather duster.
I have tried using chocolate goo, but apparently that's not good enough.
Never mind, I figured it out.
The sticky substance you are looking for is not something horrible in a hotel room.
What's brown and sticky?
A stick. On a tree. You might have something in your inventory to help you get to the resin under the bark...
You need to do 3 things
Make the pecan candy
Go out into the hallway
Go left to the office
Talk to the receptionist to get the houskeeping keycard
Go back into the hallway
Use the housekeeping keycard on room #2
Pick up the wrench and candy wrapper
Go back out to the hallway
Use the keycard on the broom closet. You will obtain a broken broom
Go out to the pool area
Use the broken broom on the crown of the tree. You will obtain a pecan
Go back in the hallway
Use the wrench on the pipe beside the vending machine
Put the pecans in the vending machine
Use the keycard on the vending machine. You will obtain chocolate pecan
Combine the chocolate pecan with the candy wrapper
Go back into the office
Give the pecan candy to the receptionist
Clean the cobweb
Go in the office
Get a stick from the blue cup on the desk
Go in room #2
Pick up the knife on the bed
Go to the pool area
Talk to the lady in the pool
Use the knife on the trunk of the tree
Use the stick on the resin that comes out
Pick up the whistle on the chair by the pool
Use the whistle on the bird to get rid of it
Pick up the feathers left behind
Combine the feathers with the stick + glue to make a duster
Go back in room #2
Use the duster on the cobweb
Go back to the pool area and talk to the lady again
Get rid of Neel
You can only get rid of him after getting the code to the safe which you can get talking to the lady after cleaning the cobweb
The code is 418
Pick up the bell from inside the safe
Go to the office and into the nightclub
Use the bell on Neel
