Zack is a new pirate on a quest to become the greatest pirate ever. In this puzzle adventure game he and his magical monkey sidekick search for treasure as they help the skeleton of the legendary pirate Barbaros.

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure is presented as a series of stages where the player directs Zack to perform a number of actions to let him collect the treasure. The player must deduce what actions will have the desired effect without triggering traps or attracting the attention of the enemies. Using most of the tools causes the game to switch to a first-person point of view, and the player is expected to hold and manipulate the Wii remote as if it were the item on the screen.

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


In one of the promotional videos for the game, one of the sounds heard after completing a task was the Islamic prayer Allahu akbar, which translates to "God is great". Capcom received a complaint from The Council on American-Islamic Relations and removed the phrase from the final version.
