Supposedly a kid's adventure, but a bit of a disaster zone: arbitrary obstacles, guess-the-verb situations, illogical mapping, and no clues as to what or how to do things. Besides, the instructions are wrong, which doesn't help either. Clearly a throw-away game for charity which Gremlin should have rejected outright.
