Prankster 2: Budget Worx is a game in which a movie filming turns into a nightmare. The actors get lost in a dungeon and real pirates, knights and mummies roam the filming set. Together with the pranksters Tim and Lily you have to help the lost film studio employees finding their way back home, breaking out from the labyrinths, medieval castles and escape from the hordes of terrible monsters. The dungeon levels are played as side-scrolling platforming sections. Different types of tools and skills, stored near the bottom of the screen, need to be used to solve puzzles. The larger game map of the city is explored using the isometric view as featured in the first game Pranksters: Treasure of the Indians.
