Arabian Nights is similar to Prince of Persia 3D, combining action with adventure elements in 3D. Each of its 7 Episodes is in "serial" format with a distinct beginning and conclusion.
You play Ali who must find and rescue the Sultan's five beautiful daughters (quintuplets), who have disappeared on the eve of their 21st birthday. As Ali, you'll meet a variety of foes and can choose how to fight them - either by casting one of 4 magic spells, using over 30 hand-to-hand maneuvers with your feet and hands, slashing them with your scimitar, or throwing knives and other weapons. In addition, you can walk, run, sprint, jump, climb ladders and ropes, walk a tightrope, read parchments and inscriptions, fly on a magic carpet, push and pull objects, play the flute, as well as pick up and use inventory objects. Interact with over 60 non-player characters in various locations including towns and neighborhoods, the Palace, a burial ground, crypts, and gardens.
