DescriptionPlayers explore the depths of true love and adventure in the medieval realms of Florin and Guilder in this collection of five mini-games based on the 1987 film (and its inspiration, William Goldman's 1973 novel of the same name), featuring several voice actors from the movie and a song, "Incredible", by Interscope recording artists Clique Girlz.
The mini-games are as follows:
- As You Wish, a time-management challenge in which smitten farmboy Westley attempts to perform specific farmyard chores for Buttercup.
- Battle of the Wits, in which the Dread Pirate Roberts faces off on various short-form quiz topics with the great brain Vizzini atop the Cliffs of Insanity.
- The Fire Swamp, a player-switching platform game à la The Lost Vikings where the Dread Pirate Roberts, who can fight, and Buttercup, who can leap and bound, collect gems and overcome Rodents Of Unusual Size.
- Miracle Max, charging the player with finding hidden ingredients in the miracle-worker's workshop and combining them in a cauldron to produce the desired result -- a chocolate-coated pill to bring Westley back to life.
- Storming the Castle, a Rube Goldberg machine puzzle of combining various unlikely objects available into a siege engine permitting the heroes of the story to storm Prince Humperdinck's castle.
