Description

Heart of China is an adventure game with a romantic theme somewhat reminiscent of films such as Raiders of the Lost Ark. Guide former WWI ace Jake Masters through 1930s Asia as he attempts to rescue the beautiful Kate Lomax, the kidnapped daughter of a ruthless American land baron. The game uses a point and click system for interaction and object manipulation, and is similar visually and gameplay-wise to Rise of the Dragon. Dialogue choices play an important role in advancing the plot. Some of the puzzles have multiple solution, and there are also optional short arcade sequences.
