This charming game from a not-so-well-known Australian developer puts you in the shoes of Joe King, freelance pilot hired to escort actress Faye Russell to a photo shoot deep in the Amazon jungle. The game is not up to par with LucasArts games (which are the obvious inspiration here), but it still offers plenty of solid puzzles and a gentle off-beat humor that will elicit a laugh or two and leave a smile on your face at the end. The CD-ROM version also offers surprisingly good voice acting -- a rare treat in adventure games.

Note: In 2004, copyright holders have released the game as freeware -- both the full CD-ROM talkie version and floppy disk version! You can download the game from the ScummVM interpreter page and play the disk images using this wonderful interpreter! Big thanks to the ScummVM team and Interactive Binary Illusions :)
