The game aims to combine time management, strategy, and adventure in terms of gameplay. It also offers a tropical island setting with many levels to play through. The game's story revolves around you, an unknown traveler, who has mysteriously landed on an island that is inhabited by a forgotten tribe. The tribe is composed of a carefree group of people that live peacefully. However, the tribe also happens to be in a crisis because a volcano has erupted. Your goal is to help these villagers reach the ocean and escape the volcano's wrath. The game is composed of 30 levels and offers a variety of island terrains to play through as you progress. You will be playing levels that have deep swamps, wild jungles, and treacherous mountains, as you help the villagers reach the ocean.
