In this game, you control a boy named Klonoa. One day he sees a dream in which he learns that somebody has stolen a fragment of the moon. He is told that the thieves are probably some painters who took the moon fragment into a museum. As Klonoa enters the music, he gets teleported into a mysterious world. Now he has to use his wit in order to overcome all the obstacles in this world and retrieve the moon fragment.
Kaze no Klonoa: Moonlight Museum is a platform game with an emphasis on puzzle-solving. The enemies you encounter can be inflated with the help of Klonoa's yo-yo, and carried around. You can throw them at other enemies, or use them to jump to higher ledges. In addition, there are various kinds of symbols you have to collect to open locked doors, teleporters, switches, time bombs, and other ingredients for puzzles.
