Unfortunately, the antagonist not only poses a threat to the main protagonist's brother but also to the entire world, and the only chance of stopping him lies in Mary and her companion Aitwara – a house spirit. On their adventure, the player gets to travel to a fantasy land of Clouders, located on the other side of the rainbow. The gameplay formula does not deviate much from the one featured in other HOPA games and requires the player to visit consecutive locations and look for hidden objects. The game is relatively easy; however, in case of any difficulties, one can use the hint system. Another aspect, which diversifies the experience is the set of various logic puzzles.
