A puzzle game in which you must solve puzzles in order to locate the seven tricksters, Maui, Puck, Eris, Monkey, Anansi, Coyote, and Raven, released from Pandora's Box and return them to its confines. To trap each trickster, you must locate four pieces of the box in cities around the world, and then capture the trickster himself in a special extra-hard puzzle.

Includes 350 puzzles of 10 different kinds created for this game: "Find and Fill," "Focus Point," "Image Hole," "Interlock," "Jesse's Strips," "Lens Bender," "Outer Layer," "Overlap," "Rotascope," and "Slices." The puzzles feature pictures, art, and objects appropriate to the cities in which they're set.

As you proceed, you can find tokens for hints and free puzzles in case you get stuck or don't like some of the puzzle types (which can get rather difficult on the later levels).
