Five years after his adventure with Doctor T. during Jack Keane the name giving hero Jack Keane is back. His newest adventure starts in 1899 in the city of Shanghai, together with the Texas-beauty Amanda he is seeking for a mysterious treasure. But Jack would not be Jack if he didn't stumble upon every mess that is available. The first tasks clearly show what the problem is: the guardian of the treasure is an old shaman, who is currently in the prison of Shanghai. Well, getting into the prison is an easy task... but how to get out???

The graphics and controls are similar to its predecessor: this adventure game uses a 3D engine with a fixed camera and everything is controlled by the mouse. The left mouse button is used mostly for looking at objects and moving around the gameplay screen, while the right button performs all important actions.

And again this game is reminiscent to the old Monkey Island series adventure games.
