Main Menu (the radar blimp is the mouse cursor)
On deck, the weather obstructs your vision.

Watch your step when on deck, else you might end up lost at sea.
Typical for consoles, every now and then, the game will offer you to save your progress. You can't do it manually.
Ouch, that hurt.
Sometimes, you can use things to your advantage. The steam will help you detect invisible enemies.
On of the cutscenes.

or....into specific traps. Such as this giant oven thing...
Flip the switch and voila! Zombie flambé!
Our heroes pondering their only escape route available...
