Twigz was designed as a tribute to the greatest adventure game series of all time, the Monkey Island series. The gameplay is identical to that of most LucasArts adventure games. The interface is "point & click" and completely verb-driven. There are a series of ten verbs that can be used with any and all objects, actors, and items in the game to achieve different results.
As the game advances, you will find that there are many puzzles to complete. By using your wit, along with any items you may have collected in your inventory, you must talk, swindle, cheat, jimmy-rig, create, and destroy to advance.
The game is designed to meet the LucasArts guidelines for adventure games. "Any and all situations you can get yourself into you can ALWAYS get yourself out of."
