Dave Dude is a single player menu driven, point and click, shareware adventure game.

Dave has just spent all his money on tickets for his holiday. As the game starts Dave is out on the street, he's locked himself outside his apartment and he needs to get into his building to pack for the trip. When he's packed the action switches to the holiday island where Dave treks through a jungle, goes fishing, spends time on the beach and may end up with the girl.

The game boasts 'more than fifteen screens' and is entirely mouse driven. It has three save slots.

At the bottom of the screen is the command menu, the movement arrows by which the player moves Dave around, and the inventory of items he's picked up.
Commands such as 'Look At' are selected from a menu at the bottom of the screen. and are combined with objects the player clicks on, so to look at the vase the player would move Dave close to the vase, click on 'Look At' and then click on the vase.
