The Secrets of Alamut (aka "Legend Part 2") begins where the first game The Legend of the Prophet and the Assassin left off as the main character, Ay-Sayf, sits beside the campfire in the desert. Still searching for the prophet Simon de Lancrois, Ay-Sayf knows his next destination is Alamut, where he has been told he must overcome treacherous traps and trials.
The player controls Ay-Sayf once again. The story leads him into the mysterious mountain as he tries to find not only the prophet, but also the reasons behind strange dreams that haunt his sleep. The interface in this adventure game is point-and-click, and there are many puzzles to solve during the quest.
