This is a point and click adventure game done in a similar fashion to classic Sierra and Lucas Games title. The only difference? The puzzles are all logical and not mind bustingly insane. This is good, since these are actual puzzles designed to be solved with brain power instead of dialling a 1-900 number.
The adventure has a Pulp novel feel, that will appeal to fans of Indiana Jones. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying this is an Indiana Jones rip-off, because it's not. It's it's own unique story with a fresh batch of characters, but it is a story and cast that will interest someone who enjoys indy films and Allan Quatermain adventures.
The graphics are beautifully rendered, and the writing is well above average. This game is well worth the 10 bucks being asked. If anything, that's a bargain for a modern classic like this.
