The game continues the same tradition of gameplay the first did requiring sections where hidden items need collecting, objects or mechanisms require manipulation with a collected item in order to progress. Mini-games also need completing involving matching tiles (a variation on mahjongg), memory games, uses for objects in the inventory and other challenges. The game also introduces a pocket sized dragon that can be used to light dark areas in the game or provide a way through an obstacle. As usual hints are provided, this time by a friendly owl while important information read is automatically added to your journal.
