DOOLIMA is a fun little WWW game I created for the amusement of Days fans out
there. Because it is a WWW based game the amount of interaction is
limited, but I hope to make it as fun and entertaining as possible.
The Basic Plot
Stefano DiMera has been found dead (for real). Salem is crawling with
people who have numerous amounts of reasons to want to kill Stefano, but
you have been charged with the murder. Super lawyer Mickey Horton
has gotten you out on bail and you now have 5 days to search
for the real murderer before your trial begins. At the trial you will be
asked many questions about the murder and will be provided a chance to
reveal what you have or haven't learned. You will have to identify who
the murderer really is and why they did it, along with other questions
pertaining to the crime. Be aware, falsely accusing some people could
get you laughed out of court and land you in jail, or you could cause an
innocent person to be convicted of the crime. There is
only one real murderer, do you have what it takes to find him or her?
How to Play
In order to ease the amount of scrolling, and to make correcting areas
and adding frequent changes I have redone the way in which the game
play. The game has now been split into 3 sections.
The Map Window
This windows is how you move around Salem. It can be accessed through
the location window.
The Location Window
This windows is a description of where you currently are and what you can do.
Through this window you can engage in conversation or choose to move to a
The Conversation Window
This window is how you engage in conversation with the other residents of Salem.
It can be accessed through the location window and left by selecting the "Bye"
Suggestions on Playing
I have 3 suggestions on playing this game which will make the game more
challenging and amusing.
1 I prefer browsing the web at a resolution of 640x480. However,
this game looks better at a resolution of 800x600 or higher just because
the window fits in the screen better.
2 Try and avoid using the "BACK" button on the web browser. Just
play the game through, and if you don't win play it again. There are
many endings, and a lot of fun places to explore in Salem.
3 By default, most Web Browser underline links. This takes some
of the fun out of searching through the descriptions of places and peoples
conversation looking for clues. I'd like to suggest that your turn the
underline links option off. However, if you really hit a dead end turning
it back on might help you out.
A Big thanks to Carol Jordan for supplying me with pictures from "Days

This game hasn't been checked for spelling or grammatical errors, which I'm
sure there are plenty of.
