Jack Keane, a broke ship captain, takes on a secret mission to earn some cash and escape debtors in London. Each chapter in this story line game contains a series of problems Jack must solve, using dialogue and items he finds along the way, to move on to the next phase.
Graphics: Colorful cartoon graphics are reminiscent of earlier PC games.
Audio: Good. The dialogue is the main audio component.
Parents' take: OK for kids, if they're patient and problem solvers. There's no blood or gore but some cartoon-style bops.
Final take: From the first chapter, when Jack must figure out how to escape thugs sent by a loan shark, this problem-solving game has some hints to help you navigate through. It's OK to experiment as the game won't let you make a fatal flaw at least I didn't find one. It may take some time to work through the various problems, though, as gamers are required to come up with creative uses of items, sometimes combining them with other items to make them work.
