I've just bought E.T. and I can't figure out how to play it. I fall into holes all the time and get stuck there. I think this game has potential but I need some help to finish it.

1. Get a shovel. 2. Dig a hole. 3. Put E.T. cartridge in the hole. 4. Fill the hole. 5. Continue living. – KatieK Jul 26 '11 at 16:13
