Hi guys,

I am a big fan of the sir fred game (it’s the only video game I ever played) and downloaded the remake.
Unf. I don’t have time/patience to go through the same 3 rooms over and over and not get further.
Can you pls. advise how I can get infinite life for the game? I would be willing to pay for that.

Just been searching the web for you!
these tips are for the SPECTRUM version, but also work for the REMAKE.

i noticed in the PC-Remake, it has a save option. (press ESC).
so it would just be a case of saving your game everytime you clear a screen with your energy intact.
then re-load the save if you die.
(so almost endless lives)

Sometimes the first screen has a Rope or meat etc.
so you need to enter the castle in one of four ways.
depending on how the game started.


If you're having problems trying to do a Tarzan on the ropes, try this tip.
When swinging, flip Sir Fred to the outside of the rope at the last moment of each upswing to gain maximum possible height. If possible, take a running jump to get a good start.

there are four ways to enter the castle.
Use the rope on the screen which is to the left of the first screen.
Climb down and get the bow and arrows.
Swing on the rope and get over the rock. (tricky)
Go left, jump onto the drawbridge chain, walk to the top,
crouch and jump into the castle.

Get the meat from the first screen.
Use the Meat in the piranha pool (doesn't always work *bug)
Get the matches from the screen to the right (swim through gap)
Pick up the matches, go back to the piranha pool,
go up and flick the switch.
You can then use the matches to explode the bomb on top of the pitchfork in order to pass it.

Get the meat from the first screen and the sword from the screen to the right of the piranha pool.
Get the bottle from the screen which is to the right of the one above the piranha pool by using the switch.
Go back to get the sword and use the bottle to call the ferryman. Use the sword to kill the swordsman and get into the castle by climbing up the well rope.

Sometimes you can find only the SWORD without BOTTLE.
You can't pass on the lake because the ferryman doesn't come to you.

Stand before the rock (at the ferryman)
USE sword
Press right
Leave the screen stepping back
You are on the next screen after ferryman.

Used for killing Bowmen and for hitting switches.

These can he used for killing things such as octopi, snakes, bats and other animals.

This has only one use, to get the ferrymen across the river.

These are for blowing up the purple bags of dynamite.

Only any good for getting down from high places.

Bit obvious this one but it is essential.

Used for making the ropes that you can't pick up.

Very useful in dark rooms.

Its only use is for getting past the Pirhana.

Used for food. If your energy is low eat one.


USE stone but don't unhold if you want to throw it. Only press 'select' key.. The stone will fly but the number doesn't decrease. Stones can kill archers.

More items:

Open doors. There are 3 keys in the game (yellow, green, cyan). Cyan key is for dungeons and for the door at the bottom of the well.

When you use it a demon stops throwing spells to you.

When you use it in the screen with an organ, it opens a secret passage.

You can flood dungeon (in the screen with skeleton) and escape.

You can use it to reach ropes that are too high. Warning: Once used, you won't be able to take it again.

Use it with enchanted ropes.

Thanks for all the help!!
The way i usually enter is thru the clouds above the room with piranha - i check if there are any objects on the RHS room and then jump over the cloud to the left where i can other the castle from the top. However, i have no idea how to sword fight. any tips for that?

Hello Mike,

well once you have collected the sword.
usually next to the jellyfish.

*all SWORD actions work when the USE button is held down.
*make sure you don't press cursor down at any point,
*as this puts the sword away.

jump onto the log with swordsman.
draw your sword by selecting it.
move left away from the swordsman,
so you just step off the log.

now wait till his foot moves over the GREEN SLIME on the log.
then move right with USE to hit his foot.
push up to defend and hop back slightly.
walk right so you are back standing next to the log.
Now wait for him to step over the slime again.
repeat this till he's dead.

it's always best to attack after he swings his sword first.
also make sure you don't walk off the screen while fighting,
as you will need to start over.

Such a helpful chap aren't you .MAD ?


Never played the game i think i will have to have a go!

yeah i try my best. :wink:

you know someone should really make a trainer for this,
the game is infuriating. :lol:

maybe HEX editing the save game is the way to go.

Posted: Mon Dec 01, 2008 7:25 pm
Mad - your advice about saving the game has been great and i have been able to make great progress. i routinelly now visit >40% of the castle, but am running to dead ends where my energy levels are no longer the constraint. any advice on how to get out of some of the rooms in the middle of the castle? ... or a link to a link to a map of the castle?

This is for the SPECTRUM version

Image ... e00471.gif

i have managed to edit the save game file.
now i can have 255 ARROWS and ROCKS to play with.

but still working on how to get multiple chicken drumsticks. :P

Posted: Tue Dec 02, 2008 4:00 pm
this is awesome!
any tips or cheat-sheet on how to get out of each room? or what the right approach is to get from certain set of rooms to another? I always get stuck in the set of rooms that end with the altar on the left hand side and the below 2 levels which end in the well that you can blow up (but i never have matches) and the dungeon where i don't have the right keys).

i had a similar problem with the matches.

this is because each time you start the game,
the objects are in different places.
i believe this can make the game impossible to finish sometimes.
but i can't say for sure.

The easiest way around it.
keep re-starting the game until they appear in the octopus pool.
then enter the castle blowing up the pitchfork.
then just hope you don't get trapped elsewhere.

there must be at least 4 walkthough's of the game.
depending how the game starts.
maybe even more it the objects are completly random.

i have a RZX of the speccy version
(video of the game being completed)
you can download it from the RZX Archive and load it into
a spectrum emulator to see it.
maybe you can see where you are going wrong.

Sir Fred Remake Trainer.

Use a UltraEdit to Hex edit your save game file "SALVA01.SIR".
(found in the installed game directory. )


if your inventory is empty.
The end of the save game will look like a bit like this.

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 FF
FF FF FF 07 00 00 00 FF FF FF FF 01 00 00 00 00
00 00 00


if you have four items it should look like this.

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0A 00 00 00 FF FF FF FF 06
00 00 00 FF FF FF FF 04 00 00 00 09 00 00 00 10
00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

Please Note.
Each item uses Five Bytes. (00 00 00 00 00).
The first represents the item and the fifth the quantity
edit more than this and you will corrupt the file.
Using the Key below try and see what the items are.

HEX Key for items.

00 = Rotten Meat (feed Pirhanna)
01 = Rock (Kill fish / Archers)
02 = Bottle of Wine (Toll for Ferryman)
03 = Rope (climb down from a high place)
04 = Bow and Arrows
05 = Flute (make the magic rope uncoil)
06 = Sword
07 = Gold Key
08 = Platform / Stool
09 = Music Sheet (open organs secret door)
0A = Matches (Explode bombs)
0B = Flaming Torch
0C = Grey Key
0D = Blue Key
0E = Tap (Flood Room)
0F = Cross Jewel (Stop Demon)
10 = Chicken (Energy)

You should see the items are as follows.
item 1 - Matches (0A)
item 2 - Sword (06)
item 3 - Bow (04) with 9 arrows (09)
item 4 - chicken leg (10) number of them 1 (01)

now lets say you want to change the matches for the music sheet.
you will need to change "0A" on the First line to "09".
then save the edited file.
Now load the Save file it into the game.

quantity of Items
change the number of Arrows or Rocks you have.
01 - FF = 1-255

if you try and have multiple Chicken legs.
the item quantity changes but when you eat it. you loose it.
(to stop cheaters i suppose.) ;)

not a problem now.
just eat the chicken, save the game.
edit it, and give yourself another one.

Make a cheque for any amount payable to the
Salvation Army.
or any Homeless Charity in your area.

Hi all! I'm new here!

Well, this game brings back lots of childhood memories of our summer days!

Recently I tried to finish it, used to cheats with poking memory that mad kindly posted, but I've problem with either matches or sword. If the matches are in octopus pond, I don't have a sword and I can't go back, trapped in that page. If I get the sword, I get trapped later with no matches. Any cheat that provides us with these two objects?
