Your quest, dear adventurer, should you decide to accept it, is to guide Peregrine Piglet through Tophole Wood, helping his fellow creatures who may be in need of his assistance and thus, completing the NINE noble tasks of kindness to lift the enchantment.
Peregrine will need to avoid woodland dangers, hostile beasts and humans. He must make new friends, overcome obstacles, solve problems, manipulate objects and act upon information to make progress. He must score 100 points to solve the game.
