Description

You are Captain Jim Cane. You are dead but you cannot rest as yet. The locket of your dearly departed love, Camelia, is lost at sea. You will not rest until you recover it so both Camelia and you will be able to rest in peace forever.

Camelia's Locket: The Tale of Dead Jim Cane is a marble-popper game. Using your mouse, click your ship to enter the level. Your ship/cannon will then either rotate or slide left and right, depending on what level you are in. The balls will enter the screen and follow a set path. Place your cursor onto a colored ball and press the mouse button. Your ship will then reach out and grab that ball. Now aim for the line and click again. The ball will be launched back to the line. You want to create a row of three or more of the same colored balls. These will then disappear. If the balls get all the way to the floating mine with a skull on it, the mine will explode and your ship will be sunk. You can then exit to the world map or retry the same level.

If you clear away all the balls, or do not have three of the same of any one color, the level will end. You will then get gold and a medal. On some levels, you may get a trophy item, such as the Revenge family tree or the Jaguar's Eye jewel. As you progress in the game, you will encounter power-ups. These will help you by slowing or reversing the line or by destroying balls. Later, you will find a shop where you can spend your gold to buy what power-ups you want and can afford.
