Engulf is one of a package of games produced by The Code Zone. Games from this package were used, in various combinations, in around twenty different game compilation packages.

Engulf is a single-player, strategy game that is played against the computer where the object is to end the game with the most pieces on the board. The game is played in a 7 x 7 grid and the players each start with two pieces each placed in opposing corners. There are thirty-five different boards each with a different arrangement of squares the players can / cannot move into. Only two moves are allowed, moving a piece one square will replicate that piece leaving the player with two pieces where they previously had one. Moving a piece two squares is a jump, this move does not replicate the players piece.

Whenever a piece is moved next to an opponents piece that piece, or pieces, are captured. The game ends whenever a player has no pieces remaining or no legal moves remaining and the player with the most pieces at that time wins.

The game is entirely mouse controlled. It is played in a window which cannot be re-sized. The game has sound, four levels of difficulty, in-game help screens, and a choice of playing piece, colour and screen background. This game has a help facility, when a piece is being dragged to a new position it can optionally display an animation while it hovers over squares that can legally be moved to.
