It combines action with adventure elements. While exploring the environment, some monsters are encountered. These can be shot, though ammo is limited, or scared away with a flare. It is however also possible to hide in certain alcoves or to lure the monsters into a certain direction by placing rotten meat on the ground. To progress a large amount of puzzle solving and exploration through an in-game map is required. The character has access to an inventory where items can be stored. These include tools but also food supplies.
