Suggestive Themes and Violence

A Dangerously Intriguing World Awaits.....

With its scenario worthy of the tales of the thousand and one nights and its excellent gameplay, 'Arabian Nights' will immerse the player into the magical world of the Middle East

Legends tell that, once upon a time, a mighty Sultan met a mystical genie who fulfilled his wish for many descendents and granted him five daughters, all born on the same day...

A Sultan's daughter must be wed on the day of her twentieth birthday. Failing to do so, she will be banished from the palace and deprived of all her royal rights. Now the five princesses have mysteriously disappeared, on the day before their twentieth birthday.

Take on the role of Ali, the dashing young hero. Run, jump, climb, walk the tightrope, throw knives and explosives and cast magic spells, on a quest to find the Sultan's five daughters. Ali's reward will be to wed them and become the sole heir to the Sultan's throne.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Audrey Wells

"Arabian Nights is an action-adventure game that revolves around a stale plot involving a Sultan who is granted five beautiful daughters by a genie. By some unfathomable decree or another, they must each be married on their twentieth birthday or face banishment from the palace. Not surprisingly, all five disappear shortly before their common birthday. Ali, the dashing hero of our game, is given the responsibility to save them, and so he sets off on an epic path that will take him to exotic locales rife with enemies bent on destruction and treacherous puzzles."

"Character development is very flimsy in this game. The leading hero, Ali, is incredibly immature when it comes to wooing his five brides to be... The women don't seem to have more than two and a half brain cells, which was slightly offensive as a female player..."

"After years and years of pure adventure gaming, I discovered how little I like the extremely limited movement in pure adventure games. One of the things I enjoyed most about Arabian Nights was the freedom of exploration. This feature is not unique to Arabian Nights, of course, but if you are familiar with only standard point and click games then this will be a pleasant departure. The seven episodes of the game are each fairly large 3D worlds with many nooks and crannies to find. Exploration is usually rewarded by discovery of vases that contain goodies. If you are lucky (or very tenacious) you'll find rings that will grant you magical powers.

"Final consensus: If you are very patient, have a knack for action-oriented puzzles, and are not opposed to lots of fighting, then Arabian Nights will be a treat for you..."
