Added DiffLines:

* FakeArmDisarm: Leovinus and Scraliontis used two of the Maître D-bot's limbs to fight each other, and eventually smashed the whole thing apart when landing on it. This didn't affect the robot much, though, as he can still wiggle his components even when separated. Played straighter in the game when you have to actually steal his arms, and get him to relax to let go of the things they're holding.


Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousFrench: The Maitre'd-bot does this almost every time he talks to you.

* SpoilerCover: It had a strange twist on this: one particular puzzle, in the Music Room, can be easily solved by looking at the back of the game box, where the screenshot of that room shows the puzzle completed. However, this isn't a spoiler... it's the correct, and ''only'', way to complete the puzzle.

* MadLibsDialogue: Played straight with Marsinta giving you your room number, which is generally randomized per play. Averted with Nobby in the elevator, however.



* OldSoldier: The [=LiftBot=]. ShoutOut to real life - ex-servicemen lift operators used to be a common sight in the UK.

* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Scraliontis]] falls to his death when he makes the mistake on leaning on a railing when attacked by the parrot, as they were poorly made due to cutting corners in the starship's development to "finish" it.
