Far from the "multimedia" titles that formed the stock of the CDi's software library, The Apprentice is a plain old platform game with cartoony sprites that would not look out of place on contemporary 16-bit platforms. As Marvin, a wizard's apprentice, your master Mr. Wandburner gives you a series of tasks to complete (basically fetching an object found at the end of a level), spread out on six levels with three stages each, taking place on land, in the sea and in the air. In order to make your life in the aquatic levels easier, the wizard will turn you into a frog. In order to fly, you're equipped with a special flying helmet. Each level has a new weapon for you to use, ranging from the traditional magic wand to a rubber ball, a water pistol or even a laser gun. As in any normal platform game, each level has an end-boss, and between levels are bonus rounds.
