"Players take the part of a cabin boy who has to collect numbered keys to open corresponding numbered locks while avoiding the ship's pirates. Points are awarded by collecting treasure from around the ships decks. There are 20 holds to explore and each hold has up to 8 rooms. Once all the treasure has been collected 45 seconds are given to find the golden key.
