"Freddy Pharkas: Frontier Pharmacist is a humorous point-and-click adventure game by Al Lowe. As such it has many similarities to other Sierra adventure games, including Leisure Suit Larry (Al Lowe's previous work) and King's Quest. Players use the command bar at the top of the screen to choose a verb command that is used on locations and objects visible to the player. Freddy can walk to new locations, look at particular objects, attempt to use objects, talk to people and enter his inventory to access items that have been picked up. Like other Sierra games, successful actions add to the player's score, judging the player on 1000 points."

I was wondering if someone might have the original floppy images?

Which version of the game are you running GuyWithGuitars?
Edit: Never mind; got the same version in my package. 'Deliberated' the manual from the Zip archive though.

Stops loading when I try to walk upstairs behind the bar where you find the ice pick and snake oil. Music keeps playing game doesn't lock up but gets stuck at the 'bullhead' loading icon. Original hardware. Tried on an LC III running 7.1 and a Centris 610 running 7.5. Any known issues or fixes?
