This point-and-click graphic adventure game is filled with original jokes and slapstick comedy.
The original storyline begins aboard a sailing vessel in the high seas. A very important document must be delivered “post haste” to Hyade Island and you, Abdullah, have been selected as the envoy. But before you get very far on your journey, you are interrupted by the delivery of a letter containing an urgent message from your friend, Titien. Titien advises that the Eye of the Kraken has been stolen and that the thief is aboard the very ship on which you are travelling. He implores you to find it and see that the thief is apprehended. You, of course, comply with your friend’s requests and set about finding the culprit.
The gameplay as a whole is non-linear, meaning that you can accomplish some things in any order. The puzzles in the game are mostly object or inventory based, and none have time limits. Some objects are nonsensical and are included to add to the comedy element.
There are numerous animated characters who move about the ship, all of whom you must seek out and talk to. Dialog is presented on-screen in text form only as are descriptions of objects and locations.
The colorful graphic backgrounds are rendered in 2D in an isometric perspective. Outside scenes change when day falls into night. You can choose the background music you wish to hear within the game itself.
